Critic Reviews for Bol Bachchan
This big-budget summer release starts off awkwardly with a half-hearted music number, but once it kicks into gear, the film's engaging performances and ever-spiraling hysteria make its two-and-a-half-hour running time fly by.
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.
The energy, the performances, the comedy, the story rhythms, production and styling, and the sheer manic craziness takes hold from the get-go and does not let up over its nearly three-hour running time.
Audience Reviews for Bol Bachchan
Plot: Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan) moves to Ranakpur village from NEW DELHI after losing out on his ancestral property. An unexpected break in at a local temple brings him face to face with Prithviraj Raghuvanshi (Ajay Devgan), a local power lord. In an attempt to cover up his real Muslim identity, Abbas creates other believable cover-up characters for himself posing as a Hindu, a homosexual and a flurry of other supporting cast to help cover his garb. Rest of the story is about Prithviraj coming to terms with real identity of Abbas accompanied by a string of comic goof ups and hilarious mis-identities coming in to play. Positives: --> Abhishek Bachchan's hilarious portrayal as a homosexual --> Entertaining sequence of events and --> Original plot from old movie Golmaal Negatives: --> Cliched story line when compared with current cinematic standards
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!!!
Nice job on the action scenes that fit to Golmaal 3 and mayhem,but the humor didn't quite the match to Golmaal 3,mild funny story,but less action scenes and mid-low on the slapstick humor.It has nice songs but with no subtitles though,solid comedy blockbuster ever made.
