It’s true to its genre – a horror comedy. There were moments when I wasn’t able to hear the dialogues because the audience was laughing out so loud.It’s Diwali and some laughs here and there has never harmed anybody. Keep your expectations limited as Golmaal 3 was on another level. This neither will disappoint you nor will live up to your hopes if they’re sky high.
If there is an audience who loves this, we should try and see what that says about us. Just like the climax, which says everything we need to know about the filmmaker. Golmaal Againends in a giant library, where books fly from the shelves and vengefully attack a man. Who needs soaring SUVs, anyway? Or a screenplay? The books batter, the books bash. We shouldn't be surprised. In a Rohit Shetty film, words are merely another tool to assault people with.
Golmaal Again is packed with so many sub-plots that at one point, you may find yourself losing track of what the core is all about. But clearly, the writer’s intention is not to convince you. The lead stars have enough chemistry and charisma to make you stay put in the theatre and you won’t regret the three hours spent watching this one.
On the whole GOLMAAL AGAIN is an ideal fun ride which delivers ample entertainment quotient without any logic. An out-and-out entertainer, it's sure to light up the celebratory festive mood. At the box office, the movie has all it takes to emerge as a sure-fire hit although the real test of the film will begin post Monday.
Golmaal Again, unfortunately, doesn’t attempt to dethrone the first Golmaal movie which remains the best of the lot in the franchise. However, it still provides plentiful of laughter thanks to some zany dialogues and the humourous antics of the lead cast. If you are planning to watch Golmaal Again, do make sure that you leave your brains and expectations back at home and then join the laughter!
The film that marks Golmaal series debut for Parineeti Chopra, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Tabu, brings back everything you remember and the things that you forgot, from the previous movies. From the blind owner of a house (Paresh Rawal, Golmaal) to Vasooli bhai, south Indian goons (ala Chennai Express) and Pappi bhai (Johnny Lever), Golmaal Again is like a major throwback to not just Golmaal films but a lot more.
For someone like me, no fan of the franchise, there’s usually very little to like in the ‘Golmaal’ films. And this time around too, I had resigned myself to a couple of hours of deja-view. But I have to say that the addition of a few new faces, and moving the location from the beaches of Goa to the green slopes of Ooty, helped freshen things up.
The film, however, serves its purpose of being the quintessential festival release. The humour is well written and consistently effective. 'Golmaal Again' works predominantly, and surprisingly enough. But a fare for all seasons? One might have their doubts.
In the end, I would just like to say that Golmaal Again is loaded with a lot of LOL moments. If you promise to leave the brains at home, the movie can turn out to be a great entertainer for you. It is clean with no vulgarity or double-meaning lines. So, it is expected to attract a lot of family-audiences to the theatres this festive season.
Golmaal Again's length might be a deterrent and it's the bad editing which makes it longer than it should've been. But the climax in a library with flying books made me believe that magic happens. Even Rohit Shetty bothers writing something and whips up a passable watch from it. Just the blind jokes are still a stretch.
