The ApunKaChoice movie review of Golmaal 3. Golmaal 3 packs in all the masala, masti and madness to leave you in recurring fits of chuckles and laughs throughout its running course, even though there’s hardly a substantial story or sense to the film. But then, if you go looking for sense in any no-brainer by Rohit Shetty, then the joke is on you, dear friend!
In Golmaal 3, when the hot-headed Ajay Devgan lifts a hapless Tusshar Kapoor in the air and plonks him arse down on a red hot griddle and the latter squeals like a banshee on burning coals, you can’t help but guffaw. When the stammering Shreyas Talpade gets stuck on words that often start with chu...chu...chu... or gaa...gaa...gaa...or lu...lu...lu...you can’t help but let out a chuckle at the hinted double entendres.
And of course there’s Tusshar Kapoor, whose blabbering tongue catches the consonants few and far between the drawl of vowels. A shade of nostalgia is evoked by Mithun Chakraborty, who revisits his “I am a disco dancer” days and even does his signature jig in a sequence. If any bit of tomfoolery was left, Johnny Lever and Sanjay Mishra are thrown in to do the needful.
The story is about two feuding sets of siblings. Their parents (Mithun and Ratna Pathak Shah) decide to get married in their middle age, thanks to Dabboo (Kareena Kapoor) who’s starry-eyed about a Hum Saath Saath Hain kinda family. But will the warring siblings stay saath saath under one roof?
There’s Ajay Devgan and Shreyas Talpade on one side and Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor and Kunal Khemu on the other. The two lots can’t stand each other. An all out battle for supremacy breaks out between the two factions even as a thief (Johnny Lever) with short term memory loss (Ghajini hangover!) thickens the plot and confusion as well.
