What it's about: :

It’s the fourth installment of the Golmaal franchise, and if you have watched the previous Golmaals, then you know what to expect. Only this time there is a ghostly twist. This time, the location has changed from Goa to Ooty. All the five boys grow up in an orphanage. They leave the orphanage one night after a fight. Gopal and Laxman (Ajay Devgn and Shreyas Talpade) go one way and the other three – Lucky, Madhav and Laxman (Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Kunal Kemmu) go the other. Years later they all reunite for the funeral of the Jamnadas, who ran the orphanage. They are reunited with their childhood friend Khushi (Parineeti Chopra) and Rukhmini (Tabu). Rukhmini can see ghosts and she helps them fulfill whatever is holding them back here, and move on to afterlife. The boys discover a crime and the bad guys’ plans to destroy the ashram where they all grew up. How they fight the villains along with the girls is what the film is all about

Golmaal Again Review: :

Golmaal is the screwball comedy franchise that has been kept alive for the last eleven years. Reruns on satellite channels always make you chuckle, no matter from which point you catch the film. Like its previous instalments, this one too has moments of unadulterated fun. The gags alternate between being truly funny and averagely routine but you find yourself laughing uncontrollably because each of the actors here is a delight to watch. Whether it’s the lisping Lakshman (Shreyas) or the bully Gopal, who is petrified of ghosts, everyone is so proficient, you can’t help but smile at their antics. The dialogue is pedestrian but witty.

Of course then you have the additional horror angle thrown in. Drawing inspiration from the South film Kanchana, where a ghost is out to seek revenge, these parts too are treated lightheartedly making you guffaw at situations that you may have seen many times over. However, in the second half, when the actual plot is introduced, proceedings get slightly dull.

Here one must say, it is to Rohit Shetty’s credit that he never lets you get too fidgety. Gags, fights, songs, giggles, ghosts, here is a buffet you can overdose on. At times, you actually admonish yourself for being stupid but you can’t help but guffaw. As far as performances go, Tabu as the ‘exorcist’ lends credence to a part, which could have otherwise looked ridiculous. The add-on members — Vasuli Bhai (Mukesh) and Pappi (Johny Lever) have their moments too but Kunal khemu is the scene-stealer. Parineeti (Khushi/Damini) is just required to distract, which she does. And regulars, Ajay, Arshad, Tusshar and shreyas keep their end of the bargain.

Review: The Last Word:

Absolutely go for it ! The film is an out and out fresh comedy entertainer. It is the perfect movie for this Diwali season to watch with the entire family. Keep your expectations high as it won’t disappoint you.!
