Having made Golmaal, Golmaal returns and Golmaal 3 which did not have much to do with the original Golmaal (madeby Hrishikesh Mukherjee with Amol Palekar and Utpal Dutt) , Rohit Shetty probably felt that a rehash of the original Golmaal was now due. So the basic idea of the hero fooling his boss into believing that he had a twin brother ( with a moustache) is now picked up for creating situational comedy and the director does a reasonably good job. The film is hillariously funny in most parts but tends to drag towards the end. What enlivens the proceedings are the rib tickling one liners uttered by Devgn from time to time. I found myself guffawing every few minutes.A character speaking broken translated English for comic effect has been tried out earlier specially by Anil Kapoor in Tashan but with not so good results.This time Devgn has done it well. Sample a few. "Boy in armpit and noise pollution in the city" for " Bagal main hai chora, shahar main dindhora". Also he says things like " Thank you for complan boy "( compliment ) with a deadpan expression. Ridiculous but keeps you amused which is what matters. The film is made for present day audiences which is quite a challenge in itself. Films are now being made for a wide range of viewers for age 6--80 years,uneducated truck driver/ rickshawman ,middle level, highly educated ,senior level executives,girls/ women of all types etc for the world market and with crores involved one can't really blame the director for trying to please all in two and a half hours. In no other creative field does the creator have to cater to such a cosmopolitan audience and they all have their customer segment. Everyone does not go to an art gallery or classical concert or a mushaira or a sports event but everyone goes to the movies Additionally,the viewer has bought a ticket from his hard earned money to get entertained and be transported to a fantasy world for a few hours, something which directors like Rohit Shetty are very adept at doing admirably well though at the cost of some criticism. The late director Mr BR Chopra ( elder bro of Yash Chopra) once spoke about a Jallandhur truck driver who used to buy 2 tickets one for sitting and one for resting his feet on the front seat for 3 hours of entertainment.He remains symbolic of today's viewer and the requirement remains the same.. The music is good with some catchy tunes. Other technical values are of a fine standard. The film has an overall feel of a quintessential Rohit Shetty--Ajay Devgn film with a total emphasis on paisa vasool timepass .
