    O-o-aa-aa ee-aaa-E-A

    If you are looking for mindless fun this Diwali, look no further.

    Gopal (Ajay Devgan) is married to Ekta (Kareena Kapoor), with a false tattoo on his forearm (reminds you of anyone?). However, his eyes don't stop wandering. Ekta's brother Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor) and Gopal's sister Esha (Amrita Arora) stay with them. Tusshar has soft corner for Daisy (Anjana Sukhani), whose claim to fame is visit to the gym opposite Lucky's saloon. Esha's boyfriend, Madhav (Arshad Warsi) is wannabe supercop, overlooking their family problems. Gopal works for Golden Fisheries, which is making losses. No the employees keep creating Golmaal! Now, Gopal saves Meera (Celina Jaitley) from goondas, take refuge in an yacht on a night, when one of his colleagues gets murdered. Since, he had some fight with him on same day, he is considered to be prime suspect. Gopal gets a new employee at work, Laxman (Shreyas Talpade) who promises to get him out of the mess. So, he creates a story, where he is Anthony Gonzalves, the person who spent the night with Gopal. Of course, he is not..and the real Anthony Gonzalves appears in the scene. After some confusion, they create another character, Munni bai (a Rani Mukherkjee-Sawaariya hangover prostitute) who is paid to be the alibi for Gopal. This also backfires. Finally, Gopal's boss...emerges as the villain (a comic one, though) and once, he is taken care of by the Company owner, all is settled and everyone lives for the next story (or Golmaal thereof).

    Usual scenes, historically known to induce mindless laughter among used to perfection, like people getting beaten without logic...people thrown up in the air...shock therapy to create funny faces, etc. etc. Ekta Kapoor must be given some award for feeding an entire genre of comedy scenes based on her serials. The film borrows heavily from old movies in the dialogues to induce laughter. Some emotions, sprinkled here and there like shaque, what the f*** is beaten to death. Then, in such films...there is a free for all scene...where everyone has a shot at something, here...everyone wants to hang himself / herself. You don't want to may just want to stop! Sometimes, the laughter becomes too much of a forced thing. Still, in the end...people do laugh, at least in recognition of past experience with the same scenes. And when you do...guess what...surprise,'s a hit!

    There is no story and there isn't a review required for the movie. Direction is in tune with the movie...about average. The songs are Ok. Now, some movie albums are really taking the album bit too seriously. Enjoy the movie!
