All The Best : Fun Begins critic reviews & ratings


There are no real dialogues in the movie. All the dialogues are jokes and you are under compulsion to laugh atleast on every third dialogue: * There is not a single moment where you can get up from your seat, or else you will feel guilty of missing a joke. * The editing is so crisp that you rarely look at your watch and later realise that more than 2 1/2 hours of movie have passed * Multiple characters and situations don't confuse people, rather they are very well-knitmore

Tucked away beneath those pointless songs and some ridiculous, overblown action scenes is a silly yet surprisingly enjoyable tale of misunderstandings and mistaken identities. Like most Bollywood comedies these days, All The Best is far too long, but it has a winning combination of cleverly crude humour and genuine sweetness. Directed by Rohit Shetty, the man behind the two recent Golmaal films – the first hilarious, the second not somore

Sometimes, we laugh at movies. At times, we laugh in movies. Thankfully, ALL THE BEST, helmed by Rohit Shetty, belongs to the latter type. ALL THE BEST makes no claims of catering to the intelligentsia or the elite. Instead, it's aimed at those who want to spend two hours of their precious life flexing their facial muscles. ALL THE BEST is for those who expect fun and laughter unlimited in those two hours. This one makes you smile, laugh, even break into a guffaw at times.more

How nice of Ajay Devgn Ffilms to wish their viewers “all the best”, because those who find themselves in the hall to watch their latest film are bound to need it. It takes a lot to drown out pre-Diwali audience enthusiasm, where one is ready to tolerate just about anything. But All The Best — an assault on the senses crudely disguised as a movie — asks a little too much of us on this festive weekend. The film opens promisingly enough with Dharam aka Sanjay Dutt riding across the sunsetmore

Big brother Sanjay Dutt makes an unannounced visit to kid brother Fardeen Khan's house and mistakenly believes Bipasha Basu, instead of Mughda Godse, to be his newfound bhabhi. This doesn't augur well for Ajay Devgn, Fardeen's friend, who happens to be Bipasha's boyfriend. But the truth cannot be revealed because Sanjay Dutt's millions bankroll the down and out foursome. Ajay Devgn seems to be enjoying his newfound love for comedymore

Anyone who's seen last year's Diwali hit, Golmaal Returns, should know what to expect from one of this year's Diwali release, All The Best. An ensemble cast, a horde of characters, ensuing confusion, a comedy of errors and eye-filling songs seems to be the mantra the team of Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn swear by. They stick to the plan here too, and the result is not so bad. All The Best, which the makers claim is a remake of a play - Right Bed, Wrong Husbandmore

All The Best is not entirely shabby. Inspired by the play Right Bed, Wrong Husband, it's a star-studded affair, which is (fortunately) low on innuendoes and high on excessive gimmickry and formulaic filmmaking. What makes this contrived farce work sporadically is not its fancy cast but the presence of veteran comedian, Johnny Lever. As the inspired caricature of Karz's Sir Judah, Lever, on the strength of his eyeballs alone, guarantees a good laugh. more

To be fair, All the Best is pretty much what it promises to be—a silly comedy idiotic enough to be enjoyed by all age groups with low entertainment expectations and high stress levels. This is that special Indian masala movie cooked up each Diwali by rich stars ostensibly for hardworking citizens of a low common denominator, read cooks and drivers, but secretly enjoyed by all, including corporate czars and intellectuals. Come on, let’s admit it.more

It's Diwali and it's time for some fun. And Rohit Shetty's All The Best brings you truckloads of it. Be prepared for the funniest entertainer of the season as producer Ajay Devgn takes you on a rollicking ride. Adapted from a play, ATB tells the story of Prem Chopra (Devgn) who is always dreaming up crazy ideas to make money, which land him and his friend Veer (Fardeen) in trouble. Veer is living off his rich older brother Dharam (Dutt). To get extra cash, Veer has lied to Dharammore

Big bro Sanjay Dutt makes an unannounced visit to kid brother Fardeen Khan's house & mistakenly believes Bipasha Basu, instead of Mughda Godse, to be his newfound bhabhi. All the Best offers some rib-tickling moments, but mostly in the 2nd half as the loose plot gradually gives way to complete mayhem and the characters begin to have fun on screen, specially Sanjay Dutt & Ajay Devgn. Pritam's music score is flashy and matches up to the carnival-like atmosphere. By far, this one's not a rip-roaring comedy, but does make-do for some Diwali masti.more

A bunch of madcaps chase their tails in Goa from the first frame to the last. Rohit Shetty discovered his winning formula with ‘Golmaal’, kept it up with last year’s Diwali hit, ‘Golmaal Returns’, and is back with ‘All The Best’, with some old faces, and some new ones. And though, ‘All The Best’ is not as certifiably crazy as the others, there are enough loony tunes to be keep the laughs going. Ajay Devgn, who’s taken off the ‘a’ from his surname for luck, smartly turns to comedymore

If you prefer to see Sanjay Dutt fitter and more awake, you might want to venture into All The Best: The Fun Begins, the latest from the Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn combine. The director-producer-star duo, who also gave us Golmaal and Golmaal Returns, seem to have concocted a workable comic formula. Several characters gather in a single location, usually a large house. The comedy stems from lies or mistaken identity or a few well-placed slaps but the gags are non- stopmore
