Golmaal (2006) Review – another whacky joyride !
Given that Neeraj Vora is behind the yarn, all trademark Vora-isms pop up in the screenplay. Opportunistic characters, bird-brained villains, pretty-looking jobless heroine, loads of pot shots on the film industry and lastly Ã¢â¬â no real story.
Cast: Ajay Devgan, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Sharman Joshi, Rimi Sen, Paresh Rawal
The story revolves around Gopal [Ajay Devgan], Lucky [Tusshar Kapoor], Mahadev [Arshad Warsi] and Laxmi [Sharman Joshi] — four guys bound together by their child-like notoriety, aimlessness and petty business of conning people for fun and money.
Gopal is the wisest and the wickedest of them all and the motto of his life is to eat, drink and make merry. Mahadev and Lucky are also of the opinion that only idiots work and wise men use them in more ways than one to make their life comfortable. As for Laxmi, he is sincere and God-fearing.
Due to their notorious acts, they are thrown out of college and have nowhere to go. Soon, they discover a bungalow that is inhabited by an old, blind couple [Paresh Rawal, Sushmita Mukherjee], whose son, daughter-in-law and grandson are in America.
Gopal and his friends force themselves in the bungalow and make Laxmi pretend that he’s Sameer [the blind couple’s grandson]. But the story doesn’t end there. The four wayward guys fall in love with the same girl [Rimi Sen], suddenly discover a treasure chest and in the end, face the wrath of a gangster who lands up at the bungalow to retrieve his diamonds, which are hidden in the treasure chest.
On the whole, GOLMAAL – FUN UNLIMITED promises laughter and entertainment unlimited. A thoroughly enjoyable fare, the film has all it takes to hit the bull’s eye. This clean comedy with no vulgarity
