The sole purpose of viewing the film is to have a good laugh. And it succeeds in delivering that, though for the most part with the crudest of humour, liberal doses of slapstick and amazing facial contortions by all actors. Again, this is just a loose array of gags, strung together very tenuously with something vaguely resembling a story.


Gang One, Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade (he with the stutter) and Kareena Kapoor try many unsuccessful businesses. And of late they always seem to come up against equally unsuccessful Gang Two, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar (he with no vocals) and Kunal Khemu. They live with single Dad (Mithun), while Gang One ke paas Maa hai (Ratna Pathak) (sorry, couldn’t resist).


Turns out Mithun and Ratna had a thing going in their youth and on the instigation of Kareena, they get married with Mithun & co moving into Ratna’s house. The obligatory settling in difficulties happen between warring brothers, some more expensive vehicles are blown up (film budget is more since it’s the 3rd instalment), some more impossible stunts happen (they have to really push the limits because it’s the 3rd instalment) and eventually, it ends almost seamlessly into the making of Golmaal3 (quite liked it – noticed that quite a few of the audience stayed on for the entire end-credits this way).



Ajay Devgn looked extremely fit, Arshad looked quite unfit (needs to lose a few kgs) and Kareena looked like a million bucks of any currency you choose. Everyone did their roles with apt gusto, even the veteran Mithun doing his share of contortion-acting with enthusiasm. There was some thought put into some of the side characters too. A don (Johnny Lever) who has short term memory loss. His sidekick, who mis-spells everything under the son. Kunal Khemu who comes up with non-sequitur couplets for all occasions.


A few places you laugh because its genuinely funny, a few where you laugh almost inspite yourself and through the rest you kind of grin or frown and bear it. Never is it worse than the third degree. It is, after all, Golmaal 3 !
