Bol Bachchan

Bol Bachchan from the Devgan – Shetty camp is just another nonsense comedy skit we are used to see from Rohit Shetty (excluding Singham). This time Rohit teams up with the duo he actually worked for his first film Zameen. Ajay and Abhishek this time try their luck on comedy.
Bol Bachchan proves that Rohith Shetty made Singham due to scarcity of nonsense script. Apart from the location and characters, the movie is made as of the 4th part of the Golmaal series. The movie is about two main protagonists, Prithviraj and Abbas Ali. After being thrown out of their own home from Delhi Abbas Ali and his sister Sania decides to go to Ranakpur with their dad’s friend Shasthri for a living. Incidentally Abbas Ali opens a locked temple in that village to help a drowning child. To avoid religious hazards, Shasthri’s son Ravi changes his name to Abhishek Bachchan. Prithviraj, the so called leader of the village, who was keen to open the temple, is impressed by Abbas Ali aka Abhishek and he decides to keep him as his superman/supervisor. The problems faced by Abbas Ali in keeping his identity undisclosed are the core elements of this movie.
The storyline itself has the taste of typical Rohit Shetty movies of CONFUSION creation. His writing team has given him one more usual formula of comedy skit type scenes, over rated sentience and ofcoz superman fights. The only thing that can make you laugh is the occasional nonsense English of Prithviraj Raghuvanshi. The climax will remind you the 2010 New Year brain drainer, Welcome.
Technically, Rohit once again made a signature style film with all his ingredients. Bouncing and skidding cars, bike riding intros and many more Shetty elements are there in the movie. Writers Sajid, Farhad and Yunus once again proved that they can make skits, not scripts. Music of Ajay-Atul was not up to the mark of Singham and Agneepath. Rest of the technical features doesn’t have much to cheer about. I have a request to Rohit Shetty to change either his art director or his style of setting locations.
On screen, Ajay Devagon has portrayed Prithviraj in a really cool way. As I said earlier the nonsense English delivered by him are the only charm of the movie. Abhishek wasn’t up to the expectation. The script never really had enough juice for his character. Asin and Prachi were good. After a long time Asin got a role that had something to act. An impressive show by Krushna and it really helped Abhishek in executing comedy. Archana Puran, Singh, Neraj Vora and the rest of the cast delivers a standard performance.
Overall, Bol Bachchan is just another Rohit Shetty film. He has no intention to change the track. For those who like his films, this one will be entertaining. My rating is 2/5 for this one. It’s a skit not a script.
