My Review and Perception of the movie
Golmaal returns is the second installment of movie in the Golmaal trilogy. This movie has received multiple positive and negative reviews, but yet is considered an all-time classic Indian comedy. Director Rohit Shetty has again done his best to keep people laughing and keep the audience entertained.
Acting from Tushaar Kapoor has obviously gotten positive review. He has yet again put a lot of effort in making the movie a fun to watch one. Ajay Devgan and Kareena Kapoor’s romantic chemistry and their married couple’s quarrels are presented in a funny way. Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade, Celina Jaitly and Amrita Rao has also performed very well in the movie.Apart from the main characters in the movie, other cast has also done a great job in the movie.
Golmaal’s music is also such that it adds to the story and the comedy. Many of the songs in the movie are continuation of the movie’s plot.
The realistic nature of an Indian married couple and their relatives is well presented by the director with the touch of comedy in the movie. Although the movie didn’t achieve as much good review as Golmaal: Fun Unlimited, this movie is still a classic comedy hit in many minds.
My Rating of the movie:
3 out of 5 stars.
