Story of Bol Bachchan
Since the release of Rowdy Rathore, Bollywood box office has been waiting for another hit and Bol Bachchan has provided just that. Junior B has been facing continuous criticism as all his movies have gone down the drain without making a hiss. Game, players, etc might have looked good but Abhishek got no luck back then. So, this time he paired with a winning team of Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgan, who have been giving back to back hit movies in the comedy as well as action genres with Singham being a strong weapon to boast upon.
And Rohit has done it again and this time it's a remake of an old 1979 comedy Golmaal; he seems to love that name. Honestly speaking, I just liked the first Golmaal by Rohit Shetty and the rest appeared meaningless to me with more stress on comedy and less on meaning and here is another movie joining those ranks. Bol Bachchan is just another popcorn movie that you might love too much or might not. It doesn't promise anything with a guarantee, you might just hate the story and plot of Bol bachchan but, you'll surely appreciate the acting by all the starcast of the movie. Ajay Devgan has been doing roles of angry young man since golmaal and here again he gets to act like a powerful man with a witty dialogues and breath-taking English. Dialogues are just great in this movie.
Bol Bachchan is like any conventional comedy movie developing with lies and twists and more turns as Abhishek bachchan plays the role of a split personality, pretending to be someone he is not; that's the reason behind the twin appearance in the posters of Bol bachchan. Ajay Devgan is shown as a landlord cum wrestler cum body builder, in short a feared personality but with a strong opposition to lies and so it does justice to the script.
Abhishek gets to live with him weaving a web of lies while knowing that the owner has an allergy to them. Asin is shown as Abhishek's sister while Prachi is shown as Ajay's sister. The movie's background and theme is the depiction of a village area. The twin acting of Abhishek bachchan makes a movie worth something, rest is just drama.
The music is given by Himesh Reshammiya and works well with the movie, the songs have not been such a success but are nevertheless quite average. Also, Abhishek's dance in one of the songs is quite an attraction.
Reviews on Bol Bachchan
Critics mostly give votes based upon acting and strong storyline, while this movie has plenty of former elements it strictly lacks the latter completely. It has been described as meaningless comedy by some while others call it a useless movie. I think you will enjoy it if you are a fan of comedy films, if you love movies with scenes full of sense and meaning, you better not spend a dime over it.
But so far this movie has been grossing pretty good and Abhishek will surely be relaxing as the box office scores of this movie are pretty decent in the first week itself. The movie has got a good opening and acting has been praised along with the comic dialogues and characters depicted. Overall, this movie has been successful enough to be called a hit as it would surely gross more money than the capital invested in it.
On an average its been given a 3-star rating by the various forums and boards as well as newspaper reviews by the critics.
