Perhaps, 'Golmaal Returns' is worthy to be ennobled - 'impaling speculation' for producers of the film. 'Golmaal' made headway with critical éclat for its top-notched drolleries; Rohit Shetty brimmed up with an ebullient show for the family audiences. The prequel had the best show-ups of perfect comedy timings, reasonably good jokes and moreover, the emotional quotients picked everyone's interest. Merely, 'GR' a falderal show with good star-casts and clichéd plotline and what else? Rohit Shetty doesn't touch on any lines of its prequel.
What should have really instigated Rohit and producers to churn out this flick? You wouldn't be able to zero down the precise reasons even after the show is over. To a greater extent, the film is so cranky and again what could be the traits making it look so? Clumsy jokes unapt for universal audiences. Totting up to the annoyance is nit-witted screenplay penned by Yunus Sajawal. It's a billion-dollar question how Rohit Shetty could elatedly turn the superfluous pages of Yunus into pictures.
And if you're there guessing could there be any solacements for audiences. Yup! Mind blowing performance by Tushaar Kapoor and Shreyas Talpade offers best fiestas of humor. Doubtlessly, you are sure to break down with laughter as these character jape simultaneously on each other.
Gopal (Ajay Devgan), who lives with his wife Ekta (Kareena Kapoor), sister Esha (Amrita Arora) and a dumb brother-in-law Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor), grinds to a halt in a yacht after saving an attractive woman Meera (Celina Jaitley) from some goons.
Both end up spending the nighttime on the yacht and when he comes home the next day, his distressing leery wife who is also a hardcore fan of the saas-bahu serials, smell fish.
Gopal knows it's going to be hard to quell her suspiciousness, so he concocts a cock-and-bull story about having stayed the night with a fabricated friend called Anthony Gonsalves. Ekta refuses to buy his yarn and writes to Anthony (on a fictitious address given to her by Gopal) asking him to visit her.
Gopal convinces his junior at work, Laxman (Shreyas Talpade) to pretend to be Anthony. Everything goes according to plan till the address to which Ekta had written to Anthony turns out to be real!
If that isn't complication enough for Gopal, a dead body is discovered at the location where he had saved Meera. The Investigating Officer, Madhav (Arshad Warsi), who is Esha's boyfriend and also who cannot stand the sight of Gopal, learns that the latter had been missing from home that eventful night and begins checking on him.
Promotions prior to release often sounded 'Biggest Comedy Title of 2008' and it's about dashing down your hopes after watching the show. It's a mediocre in terms of presentation. Bits and pieces of surprisals move you along with it, but not to a greater extent. Blemished screenplay lacking substance diminishes the crème de la crème efforts rendered by few best ones.
Rohit Shetty with his 'Sunday' won the credits as the best lollapaloozas, of blending murder-mystery with comedy (Call it 'Black Comedy'). The flick savored to everyone's tastes offering best entertainment. The scenario is quite bleak and contrastive here; nothing impressive that pulls you in.
Lots of actors and does everyone best deserve best credits? Must be quite straining for you all, going through so many questions. Comparatively, you would shoot out many more after the show. Ajay Devagan kindles - his 'Simpatico' catching breath of a struggling husband. Arshad Warsi lags behind with his goofy role. Kareena Kapoor deserves pat of appreciations as a leery wife. Despites, appearing on with a short role, Celina scores best. Amrita Arora and Anjana Sukhani, merely keep middling...
You'll have entire spotlights turning on Tushaar Kapoor as he eclipses everyone. Ditto to Shreyas Talpade; he treads highly-electrified rendering his laudable performance. Don't miss the rib-tricking takes between these lads; they're over-the-top. Ashwini Kalsekar, replica of Saawariya's Rani Mukherji and Arshad Warsi imitating Big B of Black hastens best of all laughter. Kya Hai Rohit Aur Sanjay Leela Bansali Ke Beech? (Ashwini Kalsekar planning to design her interiors with blue color is again a big gag).
Again, fallible technical aspects are a big letdown; neither music nor cinematography is up to the mark. Except, Neeraj Sridhar's 'Tha Karke' and 'Meow' by Suzy Q, nothing offers best scores.
As a whole, 'Golmaal Returns' is a light-headed entertainer, on the buttons plainly for pie-eyed individuals, while for others, enjoy if you want to...
Verdict: Watch it... Kill your time
