Much more than the television promos
Whenever Festival season comes we want to celebrate and enjoy those days. Same goes with the movies released in that time, we just want is pure entertainer with either romantic or comedy as its base. Many Big Films have been rejected in this season and at times many small but entertaining films have set benchmark. This Diwali Director Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgan gives us a Mega Starrer film “All The Best”, so let’s find out whether this film gets flying colors or goes under the red line.
“All the best” is story of Veer [Fardeen Khan] who fakes to his step brother Dharam [Sanjay Dutt] that he is married to Vidya [Mugdha Godse] so that he can have good pocket money for his music band and to help his best friend Prem [Ajay Devgan] and his wife Jhanvi [Bipasha Basu]. Prem has a habit of landing in trouble and along with him he gets Veer too in the game. Together they take a loan from Tobu [Jhonny Lever] a mute don, for a Car race. But as usual their luck does not support them and they end up as losers. Tobu gives them some time to repay the money. The more trouble starts when Dharam Surprises Veer by visiting him and wants to meet Vidya. Sadly Vidya and Veer had a big fight and thus Veer and Prem places Jhanvi as Vidya in front of Dharam. Thus starts the fun ride full of Confusions and laughter express.
Story is very simple and nothing great, but the way its been narrated is superb and full marks to screenplay and dialogs. The film has some superb hilarious situations especially between Ajay Devgan and Sanjay Dutt, Some good One liners and punches, good take on Premnath of karz by Jhonny lever and Tribute to Pran by Sanjay Mishra. The first half starts with a low pace and picks up instantly as Sanjay Dutt enters the film. Barring few action scenes and songs the second half turns out to be total entertaining and gripping. Wish the same thing would had been said about the climax which looked bit hurried , but no complains as you are already laughing out over the previous scenes after scenes in second half. Camera work is good, locations of Goa are colorful.
Music by Pritam is nothing great in terms of the film the Director-Music Director combo gave in their last few films. Still goes well with the mood of the film.
Rohit Shetty has proved that he has a good hand In comedy genre and that too with loads of confusions.
The trend priyadashan started losing out is now successfully handled by Rohit Shetty. Yes one does wish for some good trimming in film, especially the action scenes and few over the top unnecessary required scenes. If these would had been taken care the movie would had been much more enjoyable.
The film belongs to two actors,Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan who rocks in their comedy timing and great expressions, one liers and the feel of the character. They are joined by Sanjay Mishra who after giving tribute to Jeevan now gives Tribute to Pran and turns out hilarious and interesting. Also it was good to see Jhonny Lever back in action after a long time. Bipasha Basu has done her job with ease. Fardeen Khan looked quite plump and continues his No Entry character in the film. Mughda was the biggest weak link in the film. Rest all support by Ashwini, Asrani and many more are perfect with the mood of the film.
So bol meri “Filmi Khopdi” is film mein kitna hai dum ?
Dum hain and the makers have proved that it’s a dhamaka film and not a Dhuh maka film. Thanks to the timing of the lead actors, good dialogs and screenplay makes the film out and out entertainer. The film has much more than the television promos and gets successful to get the grin on you face in this festivle season. Go and enjoy the movie without caring you brain along with yourself to get the dhamaal ride.
