The mischievous gang from Rohit Shetty’s mad comedy ‘Golmaal’ is back again, this time bigger than before. The fourth part of the franchise titled as ‘Golmaal Again‘ promises a fun ride for the viewers. As we review the film, we unravel how well it connected with us on various levels.

Gopal (Ajay Devgn), Madhav (Arshad Warsi), Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor) and two Laxmans (Kunal Kemmu and Shreyas Talpade) grow up in an orphanage in Ooty. Due to incessant fights between them, they get separated and as adults we see Gopal and Laxman (Shreyas Talpade) together, whereas Madhav, Lucky and Laxman (Kunal Kemmu) in a different team. However, both the gangs work as land evictors for Babli bhai (Sanjay Mishra) and Vasooli (Mukesh Tiwari). On discovering about the death of their benefactor Jamnadas, they return to the orphanage to pay their last respects. But, destiny has some other plans as their small visit turns into one with lots of twists and turns. They meet Tabu (Anna, the librarian of the orphanage) who has the innate power to communicate with ghosts and fulfil their incomplete wishes. She somehow convinces them to stay in the bungalow of a blind colonel (Sachin Khedekar). Enter Parineeti Chopra, who Tabu introduces as the caretaker of the house named Damini. Soon, we see lots of gags and situational humour unfold with quirky dialogues and one-liners from each of the characters which are sure to leave you giggling. However, what they don’t realise is that there is a spirit keeping a close watch on them and even entering their bodies and evoking Nana Patekar-style comedy. So, the first half is replete with rib-tickling humour and entertaining gags, but post interval it turns into a revenge saga.

Well yes, the second half is less funnier than the first half and is more loaded with emotions and a typical Bollywood movie with revenge as its core theme with a backstory of deaths and disputes. Yet, Rohit Shetty manages to effectively maintain the comic element in bits and pieces inspite of the slightly emotional overtones in the second half. And the end turns out to become highly predictable and slightly stretched. But, what heavily works for the film is the amazing direction, the perfect casting and performances and the funny dialogues which will leave you in splits. Not just the lead actors, the supporting cast comprising of Johny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Mukesh Tiwari, Prakash Raj and Vrajesh Hirjee are just a dream cast for this comic caper.

In its entirety, ‘Golmaal Again’ should definitely be on your watch list this Diwali as it’s loaded with entertainment completely.
