3 MOVIE REVIEW
by : Behindwoods review board
Mithun Chakraborty, Ajay Devgn, Kareena
Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor
do not make it big in Bollywood. Is this
a perception or a misconception? Director
Rohit Shetty had to answer a few when
his second instalment of the Golmaal franchise
didn’t quite live up to expectations.
That did not deter him
as he is back this Diwali, much to the
of Golmaal fans, with a more vibrant, bigger and better
Golmaal. Say third time lucky! With people knowing
what to expect, it becomes easier for a director to
Golmaal 3 manages to reveal itself as a great sparkler.
Be it to see Mithun daddu back on screen with his
disco moves and reviving the music of the '80s or
Arshad Warsi's dialogue delivery, Ajay Devgan's breaking-the-finger
law or simply amusing blah-blah of Tusshar Kapoor,
Golmaal 3 sure serves a cup of tea for every individual
in the audience. Kareena's tomboy character and her
breezy outfit in the otherwise hot Goa sure do bring
in a fresh breath of air around us.
Golmaal 3 has a weaker plot as compared to Golmaal
Returns. This movie is about the "Clash of Titans"
except that the Titans are step-brothers. The set-up
is Goa where brothers, Ajay Devgan and Shreyas Talpade,
are constantly conspiring and fighting against another
set of brothers, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor &
Kunal Khemu. The fights portrayed do manage to bring
out their building disgust for each other. Mithun
Chakravarthy and Ratna Pathak Shah decide to enter
the wed-lock which leaves no option for the gang but
to live with each other under the same roof. Ma’s
gang led by Ajay Devgan & Pa’s gang led
by Arshad Warsi do stir up some amusing moments on-screen.
The high point of the movie comes in the second half
where the stepbrothers play a mime game. Revealing
it will take the effect out of the scene when you
watch it but this particular sequence ensures that
Diwali is properly celebrated with a 10-000 wala in
the theatre. There is a sudden hush in the theatre
and what you hear from thereon is the applause and
people laughing out loud about the pranks they see
on the screen. Tusshar Kapoor as mute Lucky, sure
receives a few whistles and it is believable that
he had fun over the course of the movie.
Golmaal 3 is a no brainer. Please do not expect both
humour and wit in this movie. What Rohit has ensured
is that the crowd is treated to a platter of Diwali
sweets. Laugh, applaud and leave the theatre with
a smile seems to be the mantra. This is best sufficed
with the endless comical scenes, over the top action
sequences and the number of colours we see on the
The sheer vandalism of cars in a single scene, junior
artists getting bashed up in slow-motion, Ajay Devgan’s
hi-speed entries and his bending any finger pointed
near his face is quite dramatic and fails to put a
smile on our faces over the course of the movie. Although,
Arshad Warsi’s frictional shoes do manage to
bring a choke of laughter.
Though expected to be a comedy movie, only a few jokes
linger in your mind when you walk out of the theatre.
Kareena Kapoor’s potential is under-used in
this movie. This girl, who is capable of showing wonders
on-screen, is masked in the routine comedy but she
sure is refreshing to watch on-screen with her casual
outfit and her tomboyish attitude.
The stand out of this movie is Mithun Chakravarthy.
This disco star relives music of the yester-years
and does bring in a few taps to our feet with his
Golmaal 3 is a fun, colourful movie to watch. Yes,
it is a no-brainer but atleast we are not fooled.
Rohit has ensured that this one is funnier than his
previous instalments. Watch it for the bulging star
cast and lots of funny moments.
Verdict: Laugh out loud and have a colourful
splash for Diwali!
