Good comedy - at last!
After a string of pathetic comedy films in 2006 (Tom,Dick and Harry , Malamaal Weekly, ChupChupke, Pyare-Mohan, etc.), Golmaal comes as a pleasant surprise. Golmaal is essentially a laughter riot, driven by an outrageous but rib-tickling plot. However, it is not the storyline that clinches it for the film - it is the amazing chemistry that the four male lead actors (Devgan, Kapoor, Warsi and Sharman Joshi) share that gives the film the requisite 'kick'. The film naturally has its share of flaws - negligible part of heroine, wastage of a stalwart like Paresh Rawal, a damp ending, but all in all, the film is a humorous treat.
Ajay Devgan discovers new acting horizons with this role, while Arshad Warsi and Sharman Joshi cement their identities as comedy-specialists. In the end you just satisfy that the director has showed a better casting including someone like hopeless Tusshar Kapoor. Thank god he was the mute prankster.
Vishal-Shekhar's music is trendy. Watch out for the the black-n-white track featuring Paresh Rawal and his on-screen wife that has a 1940's feel to it.
