Bol Bachchan - Movie Rating, Reviews (2012) | Trailer, Cast, Story - Desimartini.com

Verdict: A light mindless entertainer which will leave you in splits! Watch Ajay Devgn in top form and Abshishek Bachchan showing off his comedic abilities. One time watch.

Plot: The film is inspired by Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1979 classic comedy Gol Maal. Abbas Ali and his sister , Sania, shift base to Ranakpur after they lose their ancestral property in Delhi. Abbas gets a job under Prithviraj Raghuvanshi. Circumstances force Abbas to lie to Prithvi about his identity. To avoid getting caught, further lies are told and a madcap comedy ensues.

Bol Bachchan Review - Cold BachchanJul 6, 2012NewsRohit Shetty started his journey as a director with Zameen (2003) starring Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan. That film flopped but finally Rohit found his groove and formula with Golmaal(2006). Nine years later he might gift Abhishek the much needed Box office hit that he is craving for since Dostana (2008). I can imagine Abhishek like a kid looking at other kids having their 100 cr candy and goes to his papa and says I also want a 100 cr film. Papa calls Rohit Shetty beta tumhe Zameen ki kasam isko bhi ek de do na Rohit says sir, waise toh Shahrukh bhi line mein hain par ab aapne Zameen ka waasta diya hai toh na kaise bolun Ironically like his previous big hit Dostana, it is Abhisheks pre interval gay act that got the maximum applause in the theatre and converted a guy in front of me from I cant stand him to Abhishek Bachchan ne mast kaam kiya hai. If you have seen Comedy Circus on T.V in which Rohit appears as a judge and that humor works for you then you will feel at home with this show. There is also Archana Puran Singh and Krishna Abhishek from Comedy Circus to make you more comfortable. In fact Krishna Abhishek gets the meatiest part after Devgn and Ab Jr. For me like most Rohit Shettys films it worked in parts. I enjoyed Ajay Devgns act of speaking wrong English. Abhishek Bachchan didnt work for me at all. He couldnt fit himself into this kind of comedy even though he tries very hard and it shows on the screen. The leading ladies were as good as not being there in the film. Writing a comedy that works on a mass level is the most difficult thing for a screenwriter and Sajid Farhad scores a double hat trick as dialogue writers with this film. They are Ram Gopal Varmas discovery but their winning streak started with Golmaal 3 (2010). The parts that worked for me were all thanks to their dialogues. Rohit Shetty is the only director I know who doesn't just say that his film is a team work but puts it out there as a film by Rohit Shetty and team. Respect him for that gesture. Word of mouth I prefer a Singham over this. Rating - *** (above average) Ticket meter worth 150 bucksRony D'costa Bol Bachchan Review - Cold Bachchan Jul 6, 2012
