Golmaal Returns - Movie Review

By Nikhil Kumar     29th Oct 2008     23.30 IST    

Golmaal Returns Three guys lying on top of each other in a position that would make you think that they are about to 'ding dong'. Or imagine this. A guy falling through the air lands on his crotch on a pointed rock. Ouch!! That's the kind of humour Golmaal Returns offers.

That this comedy film by Rohit Shetty is a no-brainer goes without saying. It's a film that suspends reason and wit for juvenile humour. It has plenty of gags stitched one after the other in its threadbare script, but many of these gags are utterly lame. Like, what would be Lara Dutta's name if she marries Brian Lara? Lara Lara. Hey! You're supposed to laugh here. Ain't that so funny?

The film hardly has a story to write about. Gopal ( Ajay Devgan ) has an over-suspicious wife Ekta ( Kareena Kapoor ) who's hooked to the Balaji teleserials. One night when Gopal is unable to reach home after saving a girl ( Celina Jaitley ) from a bunch of goons, Ekta demands an explanation. Knowing his wife's suspicious nature, Gopal tells her a lie that he was with his friend named Anthony Gonsalves. But Ekta is adamant. She writes to Anthony and asks to meet him to cross-check if Gopal is telling the truth.

To hide his lie, Gopal makes his junior Laxman ( Shreyas Talpade ) pretend as Anthony. Gopal also takes Ekta's mute brother Lucky ( Tusshar Kapoor ) into confidence. Together the trio of Gopal, Lucky and Laxman fool Ekta into believing in Gopal's lie. But their bluff is called when the real Anthony Gonsalves shows up.

To make things worse, enters inspector Madhav ( Arshad Warsi ) who is investigating a murder that happened on the night Gopal stayed out of his home. Now, Madhav is a cop who loves Gopal's sister Esha ( Amrita Arora ), but he can't stand the sight of Gopal.

As Gopal invents one lie after another, the story goes through a series of crazy and silly situations before culminating in an over-the-top climax.

Rohit Shetty's main motto is to make the audiences laugh at any cost, and he does try sincerely. The only trouble is that some of the jokes are so slapstick and crass that you don't find them funny at all. Like the scene in which Vrajesh Hirjee (the karate man with a cobra tattooed on his belly) is tortured by electric shock in a pool of water and is tossed scores of feet in the air whenever his tormentor dips the electrocuted wire in the water. The movie also takes repeated digs at Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his films Black and Sawariya . But none of it is really hilarious.

The funny moments in the film come from Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Shreyas Talpade. Ajay Devgan chips in a bit of his own style of humour but he is certainly outshone by others. Kareena is charming in a light-hearted role. Celina Jaitley doesn't do what she is best at but still catches your eye. Amrita Arora and Anjana Sukhani hardly have a role.

To sum it up, 'Golmaal Returns' is a kind of film you would enjoy if you have a taste for silly humour. But if you don't, then this movie is a waste of your precious bucks. Yuck! Back Luck! What the f...!
