Star Cast: Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin, Prachi Desai, Krushna Abhishek, Archana Puran Singh, Asrani, Neeraj Vora
Bol Bachchan is the movie in which all characters are somewhat trying to create or make comedy out of some confused circumstances. The movie begins in Karol Bagh, New Delhi where Abhishek Bachchan, playing the role of Abbas Ali lives with Sania, his sister, played by Asin. Both are left in bad conditions after they lose the legal fight for the ancestral property.
Then, Asrani, playing the character of Sashtri Chacha convinces to move to the village Ranakpur in Rajasthan. The all mighty of Ranakpur village, Prithviraj Raghuvanshi is played by Ajay Devgan. He is the person who tries to translate the Hindi phrases in English, which becomes irritating after some time.
Also, Prithvi’s sister’s role is played by Prachi Desai (Radhika). So, the story takes its toll when Abbas trying to save the drowning child opens gate of the temple that has been locked since years. At this point, starts all problems.
When asked about the act, Krushna as Ravi Shastri tells the name of Abhishek Bachchan so that people realize that a Muslim has broke open the gate of the temple and so that this can bring out outrage among the Hindus.
After this, there are series of lies that are spoken to cover first lie. Abbas Ali adds to the overall story, making Abhishek Bachchan as his twin brother, without the moustache. He also brings in Zora played by Archana Puransingh as their mother.
This over the top scenes and comedy gets boring after some time. The story then ends in the chase with buses, silly fights and cars. The main thing that brings in nice touch to the movie is Prithvi’s role and nautanki band that keep reenacting the scenes from 1979 movies like Golmaal.
Starting and ending
The movie Bol Bachchan starts on the slow note. Also, the item number by Amitabh Bachchan is boring, feels out of place. Indeed the first 15 minutes of the movie drag and the things take up some speed after the introduction of Prithvi. From that point, it becomes a hilarious gag that makes you smile and laugh.
But unfortunately, some jokes brought up in the movie are repeated various times and this in turn dilutes the overall impact of a comedy film. In all, Bol Bachchan is not close to sensible comedy. It is just a onetime watch movie and that too if you are getting bored.
So, if you want to go out just for the sake of going and spending your money, you can go for Bol Bachchan. A few scenes and jokes will surely make you laugh, but do not expect it to be the real entertainer.
