Storyline

When a child falls into the well of the temple and Abbas breaks the temple's lock to save the child. When Prithviraj arrives at the scene, Ravi says Abbas's name as Abhishek Bachchan to avoid religious controversies of a temple being broken open by a Muslim. Prithviraj hires Abhishek Bachchan (Abbas) and is happy with his work, but Ravi and his friends have to come up with a new plan when Prithviraj spots Abbas celebrating Eid as a Muslim. Abbas and the others convince Prithviraj that the one celebrating Eid was actually 'Abbas', an effeminate man and classical Kathak dancer. Things become worse for Abbas and Ravi when Prithviraj kindly hires Abbas for teaching Kathak to his sister Radhika (Prachi Desai). The more Abbas tries to manage his dual life without letting Prithviraj know, the more he has to lie to cover up other lies; this forms the crux of the story.

Bol Bachchan .... will remind you milk no. 6
20 July 2012 | by maneckk-414-209658See all my reviews

Bol Bachchan made me laugh … period.

The "English" speaking Ajay Devgn (whose interpretation of famous Hindi proverbs, though forced, did extract quite a bit of laughter from the audience), the awkward Abhishek Bachchan playing 2 personalities (one of a hard-working man & the other a effeminate dancer) is hilarious and the surprise package Krishna Abhishek (better known from the comedy circus on TV) who has a meaty role and keeps you in tears (by making you laugh, of course), all have delivered a rollicking & high spirited comedy with signature Rohit Shetty action. Veteran Asrani and a regular character actor Neeraj Vora do a commendable job of supporting the main protagonists. The loud Archana Puran Singh is as usual loud, Asin could have been pivotal but is forgettable & Prachi Desai looks very fair (though the director was unfair to have given her a blink and miss role). Amit jee (Bachchan) graces us with his presence in the opening sequence song and very aptly clarifies, "I am not in the main movie … only my name is there".

I read somewhere that the movie is the official remake of yesteryear's hit comedy Golmaal (No, I am not talking about the Rohit Shetty series with the same name) and though neither Abhishek Bachchan can ever match the subtlety of Amol Palekar or Ajay Devgn remotely take on Utpal Dutt's style … this one still had me in splits from the start.

The team of Ajay Devgan & Rohit Shetty are back again doing what they do best … over the top action sequences (you do see a Singham hangover) & slapstick, in your face comedy which in this one was surprisingly funny. I hated myself for laughing at the Comedy Central styled jokes and loved every bit of it. Even though I went with a preconceived notion of watching a mindless, slapstick comedy, this one was completely worth it.
