DIRECTOR Rohit Shetty’s ‘ Golmaal Again’ is the forth installment of the highly successful film franchise Golmaal. The latest series of Golmaal is slightly different from the previous parts. This time director has created space in the script for Tabu & Parineeti Chopra too. The story revolves around five friends- Gopal (Ajay Devgn), Madhav (Arshad Warsi), Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor), Laxman (Shreyas Talpade) and Laxman, again! (Kunal Khemu).
These companions decides to revisit Ooty, when they come to know about the demise of Seth Jamnadas, the founder of the orphanage where they had once lived. The story becomes intriguing when these guys meet Anna (Tabu) and Damini (Parineeti Chopra). Anna has special powers to see and talk to ghosts. She convinces all the boys to move back to their old neighbourhood in a new house on rent. What these people know that Damini is not Damini but in fact, the ghost of Khushi, a girl who they had found at the gate of the orphanage years ago. Anna tells them the truth behind her and Jamnadas’s death, then they plan to avenge their murders. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
Talking about the performances, the films main lead Ajay Devgn, does a commendable job, his comic timing in the film is just fantastic. On the other hand Arshad Warsi who is also known for his fun acts did a great job in this laughter riot flick. Other actors like Shreyas Talpade, Kunal Khemu and Tusshar Kapoor also played their part well. Parineeti Chopra looks glamorous despite being shown in a similar look throughout the film. Prakash Raj and Neil Nitin Mukesh who are the newest inclusion in the Golmaal franchise leave a mark with whatever they have been given.
Apart from impressive background music, the beautiful locations of Ooty is another centre of attraction. Instead of Goa, this time Ooty is the place where majority of the scenes are picturised.
This is the least entertaining than all other previous installments. The poor storyline and least possible twists & turning points actually damages the entire flow, especially in the second half. This could have been made more humourous that actually audiences expect from Golmaal franchise.
Golmaal Again is not as delightful as its previous parts, however it can be seen once.
