Like every other Golmaal film, this was supposed to be huge. The most profitable franchise of Bollywood, has never failed to make our belly hurt. The gang is back with a bang, and its crazier than ever. From hilarious one liners to a perfect horror comedy, this movie has everything to offer this Diwali.
Anna Mathew (Tabu), a librarian living in Ooty, who can see and talk to the spirits of people who died living an incomplete life. She takes us into the flashback of Jamnadas Orphanage, where the Golmaal gang grew up and leads us into the lives of Gopal (Ajay), Madhav (Arshad), Lucky (Tusshar), Laxman 1 (Kunal) and Laxman 2 (Shreyas). The story begins as how they grew up with a girl named Khushi (Parineeti); who was left at the gate by someone. Amongst all fun and games, there’s a horrific twist of which our Golmaal Gang gets to know about. Rest of the film revolves all around that twists evoking some laugh-out-loud situations and the huge chunk of drama in the second half.
The makers have always tried to experiment and bring out the best. With the first 3 Golmaal movies, makers proved us that they can handle too many characters in a single scene. With Golmaal Again, too, they won't disappoint you. The only complain to this one is that there was lack of humor in the second half and a missing climax.
The star cast of this one is just perfect, the new additions Tabu and Parineeti Chopra are like a cherry on the top. Ajay Devgn does well as a he-man who gets cold feet on even hearing about ghosts. Arshad Warsi, again, is in his top form as Madhav. He is becoming the ‘Madhav’ character with every passing Golmaal movie. Tusshar Kapoor as always justifies his unvoiced Lucky character. He speaks through his face which makes him even funnier. Kunal Kemmu has one side-splitting scene which he totally nails it. Shreyas Talpade also contributes to this chain of laughter by his impeccably superb comic timing. Johnny Lever and Sanjay Mishra are the real winners. There’s one secret cameo too, watch it know or wait for someone spoiling it. Neil Nitin Mukesh, Vrajesh Hirjee, Mukesh Tiwari play their roles as directed without leaving any huge mark.
A great applaud to the entire team of Golmaal for making such rollicking sequences for everyone. The makers might have gone wrong at some parts but they're never wrong with showing what he has prepared. Moreover, the music for the film was given by Amaal Mallik. The movie starts with the ball of fire title song which sets up the right tempo for the film. Remix of Aate Jaate fills the gap between the scenes.
Directed by Rohit Shetty, it is a go-go for Golmaal Again! We would give a solid 6.5/10 to this one as neither will it disappoint you nor will it live up to your hopes if they're sky high.
