Abbas Malik lives in Karol Bagh, New Delhi with his sister Sania. They are legally fighting for an ancestral property - land case. But the odds turn against them and they lose. Their well wisher, Shastri Chacha, advises and convinces them to migrate to his village Ranakpur where he assures Abbas that he will get him a job at his owner's place. The owner being none other than the powerful Prithviraj Raghuvanshi. Abbas enters Ranakpur village and while saving a child trapped inside a temple, he breaks open the lock of an ancestral temple but fate plays an important twist in Abbas' life as the whole village including Prithviraj's step-brother Vikrant opposes Abbas' actions but Prithviraj arrives and handles the situation.

Critic Reviews for Bol Bachchan
Bol Bachchan carries off its rapidly thinning, virtually villain-free plot thanks to its fast-paced presentation of a storyline that hinges on a succession of double identities and escalating fabrications.
Though Shetty's movie love is noticeable, his reliance on frantic sound effects and empty action-comedy set pieces over well-thought-out farce mechanics is ultimately wearying.
Audience Reviews for Bol Bachchan
For a remake of Golmaal, the script is adequately modified to feel the difference. Unfortunately, the difference is no good. While it's been given a modern look & the budget has been no restriction, the movie on the whole doesn't stand good. I'd expected a mediocre comedy, but it turned out to be below that. The last half hour is a drag, although the rest is almost as trashy. I can only hope that Shetty has no plans for sequels!!!
