Golmaal Again is the 4th film in the Hit Golmaal Franchise. Expectations were high from this one. Makers have hit the right chord by releasing it in Diwali. When the very first poster of Golmaal Again was released it read – Logic nahi sirf magic. And so we shouldn’t expect anything logical here. Its a film of – leave your brains at home- genre. And once you give rest to your logical reasoning skills, Rohit and team ensure that you leave the theaters with smile on your face and thoroughly entertained.
Golmaal Again bears no similarity to its predecessors except the names of characters. They all are there- Gopal (Ajay), Madhav (Arshad), Lucky (Tushar), Laxman (Shreyas), Laxman (Kunal), Puppy (Johny), and Vasooli Bhai (Mukesh). Apart from them new additions are- Parineeti Chopra as Khushi, Tabu as Anna, Prakash Raj as Reddy and Neil Nitin Mukesh in a cameo as Nikhil. What works at the first is the gang of these insane boys whom we are connected with. We know them and enjoy their chemistry. So its a plus point besides franchise the Golmaal brand itself.
Golmaal Again starts with beautiful locations of Ooty. and Tabu tells a story where we are taken into these 5 boys’ childhood. The five children had a dear friend in young Khushi (Anaya). Actually, Khushi had been found by young Gopal (Zubain) abandoned at the gate of the orphanage as a new-born. The five friends had run away from the orphanage even while they were kids but after growing up, they still had a soft corner for Jamnadas and his orphanage. While Gopal and Laxman (Shreyas) were together, Madhav, Lucky (who can’t speak) and the other Laxman (Kunal) stayed together. After some time something happens and they are taken back to the orphanage. And the Ghost come into play. I won’t reveal much as it would mar your excitement for the movie. So I keep it brief.
What works in Golmaal Again is its Characters and their chemistry ,Some LOL Moments, Stupid PJs, Cinematography, Background music and especially the complete First Half. First half of Golmaal Again is very funny and full of frolic moments. While second half is emotional, dramatic but yet funny which makes Golmaal Again the second best film in the franchise after Golmaal Fun Unlimited. Performance of all actors is top notch. Each and every actor has their moments which sines out. Rohit’s direction is awesome and he understands what people want from him.
On the Whole , Golmaal Again is a Solid Entertainer which will definitely tackle your funny bones. Filled with scenes that will make you laugh till it hurts in stomach. From children to adults to the old, everyone will enjoy this film and thus it will do very well business at the Box Office. Sure fire Super Hit !
Go and have a blast !
