Leave your logic outside the movie hall before watching Bol Bachchan for two good reasons; one, your logic can escape the impending torture, and two, you can frequently laugh at the slapstick humour that requires neither taste nor sense to appreciate. Though Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan does their part with out-and-out comedy throwing in chunks of action and irksome melodrama, Rohit Shetty’s act of lifting all the major plot points of the classy, Amol Palekar-Utpal Dutt starrer Golmal and altering it with unruly, cheesy and visually flashy sensibilities is rather unwarranted.

The film opens to a gaudy title song featuring Amitabh Bachchan just to hint at the flamboyant act that follows. The story revolves around Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan) who migrates with his sister Sania (Asin) from Delhi to Ranakpur due to the ‘clichéd evil brother usurping their property’ reason and the goof ups that follow when he is caught amidst an old temple break by Prithviraj Raghuvanshi (Ajay Devgn). Prachi Desai as Prithviraj’s sister Radhika and Asin have nothing much to do other than falling for their male counterparts. Ajay Devgn’s character, the all powerful landlord gives you a good laugh with his flawed English phrases and genuine acting. But you can barely compliment this amongst the 150 minutes of yawn-inducing movie with all those usual Rohit Shetty trademarks like car explosions and gravity defying stunts.

Abhishek Bachchan got a much needed break with the movie to his otherwise sinking career. However, he struggles to match Devgn’s calibre and hardly delivers smooth flow to comic sequences. However, he seems at ease with his second identity as a gay and apart from the clichéd expressions of an effeminate, gives you a chuckle with his stocky build. Archana Puran Singh’s comic act is worth mentioning in the too predictable and infantile plot. Himesh Reshamiyya’s music is average and though you hardly think about the presence of screenplay, Yunus Sajawal has actually written one for this, resting it on the heavy cast to deliver. Rohit Shetty seems to like making masala flicks every year involving Ajay Devgn and apart from dry reasoning and non-existent storyline, has actually succeeded in delivering them. A first week collection of Rs. 66.81 crore show just how well Rohit Shetty has managed to stretch a joke. The film opened at Rs 12.10 crore net on Friday and Rs 14 crore net on Saturday.

Bol Bachchan follows the trend that was started by Wanted all the way through Bodyguard, Singham and culminating in the latest spicy, flashy commercial hit, Rowdy Rathore. This is that new segment of films that has nothing to critically mention but still make it to 100 crore club. The movie is far from pleasing though you will have a good time if you’re a fan of Rohit Shetty movies or if it’s just about mediocre entertainment. And unless you don’t hurt the collections of movies like Shanghai, go have a good laugh and leave everything about the movie behind once you are out of the movie hall.
