Total Dhamaal Movie Review: Funny And Entertaining Despite A Staid Story
This is the third film of the dhamaal series and like its precursors, this one also is an action-comedy with its heart in the best area, but its story isn't.
 
The story is happily lousy schlock: The story is flat, common cat-and-mouse chase between 8 personalities to collect a booty of rupees fifty crore that's been snitched from the Commissioner of Police (Boman Irani).
 
With a cardboard thin story line, the manuscript is sewn with friend scenes as well as is packed with activity dramatization and comedy. It takes you on a roller-coaster flight of frantically anti-climax minutes with laughs in every scene punched with low-brow discussions that holds your interest more than it ought to have, given exactly how careless it is.
 
The story starts with educating us that this is "all about the money", as well as follows up with a song that is installed like a Broadway musical introducing us to the eight major characters.
 
They are; Radhe (Ajay Devgan) whose purpose is life is, "Bada aadmi ban na hai," as well as he does it by swiping, his lackey is Johnny (Sanjay Mishra). Deshbandhu Roy aka Lallan (Riteish Deshmukh) is a little time con-man and trickster and his flunky is Pintu (Pitobash Tripathy). Adi (Arshad Warsi) is gone along with by his dim-witted brother Manav (Jaaved Jaaferi) and a competing pair, the Guju Avinash (Anil Kapoor) as well as his Maharashtrian better half Bindu (Madhuri Dixit-Nene).
 
On the efficiency front, every actor is easy as well as natural. Each pair shares a fantastic chemistry between themselves as well as are legitimately amusing as they fit best onto the bromantic comedy bandwagon. The only odd couple is the Bindu-Avinash couple with Madhuri showing up a bit jaded and also forced.
 
The soundtrack is laced with a couple of remixes of the 1980s and also 1990s hits. Popular amongst them is the number "Mungda", which is perfectly choreographed and also wonderfully picturised on Sonakshi Sinha who does a guest appearance in this number.
 
On the production front, the movie is well installed with ace manufacturing values except that the sets appear to be a little bit antibacterial and also artificial as well as the CGI of poor quality.
 
The activity sequences, despite being predictable, are interesting as well as awesome and also a few of them actually get you to the edge of your seat. The initial half is fast paced and races with. The second fifty percent drags a little bit attempting to use the psychological chord, especially in the zoo scene. And the climax is in fact level.
 
In general, "Total Dhamaal" is a total time-pass film sans any kind of intelligence. You might describe it as an appropriate excellent quality from a low-grade student.
