Film: Total Dhamaal
Director: Indra Kumar
Cast: Ajay Devgn,Anil Kapoor,Madhuri Dixit,Riteish Deskmukh,Arshad Warsi,Jaaved Jaaferi
The third installment of the 'Dhamaal' franchise, 'Total Dhamaal', could be a slapstick ride complete with flying cars, unmitigated helicopters and fal ling bridges. A run-in Gujarati-Marathi couple compete by Kapoor and Dixit get a tip-off from a dying man a couple of treasure hidden during a installation during a place referred to as Janakpur. The film then introduces a bunch of eccentric characters World Health Organization all get entangled during a mad chase for the prize.
Despite a stellar star forged, the film’s plot and narrative is clumsy and fails to impress. whereas there square measure some dialogues and scenes that merit a couple of laughs, the remainder of film gets uninteresting.
Devgn, one among the producers of the film, plays Guddu, a conman World Health Organization cheats a commissioner, compete uproariously by Boman Irani. each play their roles well. Deshmukh, within the colour of Lallan, ends each sentence with ‘bey’ to counsel that he's a Bhojpuri speaker. The comradeship between Warsi and Jaffrey within the previous instalments of the film was far better. this point around, their characters appear forced.
Another drug of abuse is its excessive use of badly-executed camera work. A anaglyph by grayback Lever doesn’t do a lot of to induce the audience excited. 'Total Dhamaal' can inform you of Tom and German, however with fewer laughs.
Director Indra Kumar, whose second 'Dhamaal' providing eight years agone received a lukewarm response, tries onerous to deliver here, but fails. Not solely the film’s playscript, even most of the punches square measure foreseeable.
The music, too, is nothing to jot down home concerning and given the excitement created for the 'Mungda' remix, the song will nothing to uplift the film. The reuniting of Kapoor and Dixit is perhaps the film’s solely state. however given their filmography of hits like 'Tezaab', 'Beta', 'Ram Lakhan' to call a couple of, the 2 due a more robust film for a comeback. In summation, if you swear by comedies like 'Great Grand Masti' and 'Double Dhamaal', solely then may you get pleasure from this one.
