My review for Total Dhamaal
I watched Total Dhamaal and it was a fantastic entertainer that will make you laugh mainly in the first half. We have Paisa Paisa song as an introduction like Golmaal but Ajay Devgn's intro was excellent and has mass written all over it. Ajay is funny in the beginning and Indra Kumar directs him very well by giving him in a character which he feels comfortable playing. It looks like holds a record of slaps in this film which he gave to people like Boman Irani.
First half as I mentioned is a non-stop laughter and very entertaining as the entire cast was given equal footage. It's loaded with lots of humor and fast-paced comedy sequences especially Arshad Warsi & Javed Jaffery scenes were the best followed Ritesh Deshmukh parts which he shared with Johnny Lever. I felt these three actors had fantastic comic timing better than everyone else.
Now the second half is engaging but it's difficult to match the first half. I felt Indra Kumar could have worked on it better especially the zoo scenes with animals which were good for what it. It's just I was expecting some action sequences when Mahesh Manjrekar came with his goons. Indra could have provided some fight scenes with Ajay Devgn fighting these baddies. You really got to know Ajay's audiences and I think masses would have enjoyed it more if he did some action scenes.
Ajay Devgn is excellent and it utilises his face expressions very well at the right time in each scene.
Sanjay Mishra as Ajay's sidekick was ok.
Ritesh Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi & Javed Jaffery whom I've praised in previous paragraphs gave the best performance. Their comedy was gold and they are too funny to watch.
Madhuri Dixit was very good and Anil Kapoor is fun to watch although he hams in a few scenes.
Boman Irani is good as well and he suits his role.
Total Dhamaal is not as good as Dhamaal (Prequel) but far better than Double Dhamaal. I enjoyed Ajay Devgn & Sanjay Mishra's scenes but my favourite was Arshad Warsi & Javed Jaffery scenes and Ritesh Deshmukh as well.
It was a delight to see Madhuri Dixit & Anil Kapoor reunite after 19 years as they previously did Pukar. They had their moments as well and their scenes were good but it's no match for Arshad Warsi, Javed Jaffrey & Ritesh Deshmukh's parts.
Very good clean comedy and I think children are going to love this film as well as adults.
