Golmaal - Fun Unlimited Hindi Movie Review
Golmaal - Fun unlimited succeeds in its sincere attempt to make people laugh.
Rohit Shetty must be congratulated for making a comedy successfully. His astute direction of the movie is marked by few factors. He retains the tough image of Ajay Devgan and yet adds a comic touch to his character. Arshad Warsi is allowed to be as fluent as possible. If Sharman Joshi is affable as a guy comically torn between his conscience and the pull of his friends to be an accomplice in their misdeeds, Tussar Kapoor is hilarious as a mute.
Gopal (Ajay Devgan), Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor), Mahadev (Arshad Warsi) and Laxmi (Sharman Joshi) - the four good for nothing guys are quite shameless about their ways of scheming and swindling. They are unashamed of their selfishness too.
The gang of four descends on the bungalow of Paresh Rawal and Sushmita Mukherjee that are a blind and aged couple. They act as their grand son Samir who stays in the USA.
To add to the trouble the four guys fall in love with the same girl Nirali (Rimi Sen). It's a riot of fun when the four don't let a single chance go by to pull each other's legs to win Nirali's love. Mukesh Tiwari as vasooli and Manoj Joshi as the dean are gullible time and again.
There are many hilarious scenes in the movie worth mentioning - the appearance of Sattu Supari just at the time when Arshad Warsi and Sharman Joshi execute the plans to knock off Ajay Devgan. Instead of Ajay Devgan being the victim Sattu Supari becomes the victim each time.
Another example of directorial excellence in comedy is the flashback scenes where a young Paresh Rawal runs behind a young Sushmita Mukherjee. The dialogs, the song and the shots of that scene are exactly like that of movies in the 40s and 50s.
Golmaal has perfect comic timing, reasonably good jokes and an emotional plot. Spending a few hours this weekend to watch the movie will be a worthy investment of time and money. Truly, Golmaal delivers fun...unlimited.
