It’s true to its genre – a horror comedy. There were moments when I wasn’t able to hear the dialogues because the audience was laughing out so loud.It’s Diwali and some laughs here and there has never harmed anybody. Keep your expectations limited as Golmaal 3 was on another level. This neither will disappoint you nor will live up to your hopes if they’re sky high.
Golmaal Again is packed with so many sub-plots that at one point, you may find yourself losing track of what the core is all about. But clearly, the writer’s intention is not to convince you. The lead stars have enough chemistry and charisma to make you stay put in the theatre and you won’t regret the three hours spent watching this one.
On the whole GOLMAAL AGAIN is an ideal fun ride which delivers ample entertainment quotient without any logic. An out-and-out entertainer, it’s sure to light up the celebratory festive mood. At the box office, the movie has all it takes to emerge as a sure-fire hit although the real test of the film will begin post Monday.
The film that marks Golmaal series debut for Parineeti Chopra, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Tabu, brings back everything you remember and the things that you forgot, from the previous movies. From the blind owner of a house (Paresh Rawal, Golmaal) to Vasooli bhai, south Indian goons (ala Chennai Express) and Pappi bhai (Johnny Lever), Golmaal Again is like a major throwback to not just Golmaal films but a lot more.
For someone like me, no fan of the franchise, there’s usually very little to like in the ‘Golmaal’ films. And this time around too, I had resigned myself to a couple of hours of deja-view. But I have to say that the addition of a few new faces, and moving the location from the beaches of Goa to the green slopes of Ooty, helped freshen things up.
The film, however, serves its purpose of being the quintessential festival release. The humour is well written and consistently effective. ‘Golmaal Again’ works predominantly, and surprisingly enough. But a fare for all seasons? One might have their doubts.
In the end, I would just like to say that Golmaal Again is loaded with a lot of LOL moments. If you promise to leave the brains at home, the movie can turn out to be a great entertainer for you. It is clean with no vulgarity or double-meaning lines. So, it is expected to attract a lot of family-audiences to the theatres this festive season.
