Logic Nahi, Only Magic… The tagline already told you to keep your brain at home when you go out to watch the film. I agree, it’s a good idea but how far you can tolerate illogical things? That depends on everyone’s individual mind. I have enjoyed watching Golmaal films in theater only, watched 2, 3 and now 4th one in theater and Golmaal Fun Unlimited still remains the best film of the Franchise, and i don’t think even Rohit can ever think to make a better film than it.
For me, Golmaal Again comes 3rd best after Golmaal 1 and Golmaal 3 while Golmaal 2 holds the last spot. Golmaal Again starts very slowly, i have never seen previous films starting this much slow. Unexpectedly this one became story-oriented for first 30 minutes and then as expected Laugh riot starts and makes you laugh hard with Jokes, punches and entertains with Action.
First half was approximately 90 minutes long and that’s a surprise for me, i never expected this much longer fun but if you see actually then those story oriented first 30 minutes looks useless so you count only next 60 minutes which defines the franchise value.
Second half is less entertaining than first half but it has emotions (some of them doesn’t really connect due to no logic thing) and then predictable happy ending climax ends this fun ride. Acting wise everyone is ordinary but i don’t think this film really needs acting skills. Cinematography is High Scale, Production value speaks through visuals. This one has to be most Lavish film ever in the Franchise as well as in Rohit’s career.
Credit goes to technical team for eye pleasing VFX work. Music is Dull, Title Song is Best Cinematic Experience in theater this year, that Carnival, choreography and that Bass is just WOW. Other Songs are irritating and useless. Screenplay looks lose because of useless Songs and too much flashback stories. Direction is Strictly Average, Writing saved the film otherwise Rohit almost made a crap.
The only thing for which Rohit needs to be appreciated is that he gave exactly what audience wanted at those moments, when you expect Fight, Fight scenes happens. When you expect Comedy, it happens, when you expect a twist, it comes so credit definitely goes to Rohit Shetty. But i must say, Rohit has lost his old touch, come on man we don’t want you to deliver a one time watch every time, we want High Repeat value films too.
Film has some illogical moments and forgettable but some are just over and you ask question yourself that if this can happen without any problems then why the hell were those entire flashback stories build up? Excluding these minuses Film has everything what you expect from a typical Golmaal franchise film. Overall, Golmaal Again is a Sweet Diwali dish for families which should be tasted once.
“Go For This One but don’t expect a Logic, just enjoy the Magic, Laugh, recover your money and forget it.”
