Golmaal Again

If your idea of entertaining cinema is slapstick jokes that won’t stay in your head after you leave the theater, Golmaal Again from Rohit Shetty is exactly the kind of movie you should watch. Golmaal franchise which now seems like the NREGS equivalent for actors like Arshad Warsi, Kunal Khemu, Shreyas Talpade and Tushar Kapoor, …
