Rating - **
Review - Gopal (Ajay Devgan), who lives with his wife Ekta (Kareena Kapoor),
sister Esha (Amrita Arora)and a dumb brother-in-law Lucky (Tusshar
Kapoor), gets stuck in a yacht after saving an attractive woman Meera
(Celina Jaitley) from some goons. Both end up spending the night on the
yacht and when he comes home the next day, his painfully suspicious
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 suspicion so he concocts
a cock-and-bull story about having stayed the night with a fictitious
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. Okay,
all of remember the funny "Golmaal", the prequel of the movie. But
sadly, there's nothing at all to remember in the sequel of "Golmaal".
The movie creates a pretty bad impact on it's viewers. Despite of some
funny moments of the movie, the movie looses it's momentum very often.
There are loads of irritating, slapstick moments which tries to make
the viewers laugh but ends up disappointing. The direction is pretty
poor. Not a good one this time Rohit, unexpected. Ajay was okay, fine
in some of the scenes. Tushar was fine, but irritating at times. Arshad
was okay & the rest were fine. So what are the missing elements this
time from it's prequel? There is no Sharman Joshi, which is a huge let
down for the movie. Poor music, prequel had far better music. The
direction, it's pretty poor this time. Yes, there are some funny
moments, specially the spoof on some disasters of Bollywood like Tashan
& Saawariya is quite funny, but the cheap comic moments in the movie
makes the movie dull, especially the climax. It's better to term the
climax of the movie as "Frustrating, irritating & very boring". Poor
show this time by Shetty. It's getting too much with the same contents
Mr. Shetty, better change your way of making movies now.
