What do we expect From Rohit Shetty’s flicks? As one can expect that lot of uncontrolled humours having comedy and action sequences will be the highlights of his creativity, but Rohit fails with putting all stuff in Bhojpuri style in his latest ‘Bol Bachchan’.
Story opens with the Karol Bagh of Delhi where Ali Abbaas played by Abhishek Bachchan lives with his sister Sania portrayed by Asin. Problems and difficulties mount over these two orphans as they are cheated out of their rightful inheritance by their uncle. With not too many options left the duo is advised to quit Delhi and move to their late father’s friend in Ranakpur village of Rajasthan.
In the village, Abbas in an attempt to save a child drowning breaks the lock of a temple, being shut since decades. The fuming villagers along with town’s almighty Prithviraj Raghuvanshi , played by Rohit’s lucky mascot Ajay Devgan, takes a note of the situation. The false tale story starts from this point, as Ravi Shastri played by multi-talented Krishna, introduces Abbas as Abhishek Bachchan, in order to save him from the outrage, for being a Muslim guy. The untruth stories are thrown like a snow ball, but it get difficult from Abbas to handle. There comes another fake story as renamed Abhishek Bachchan claims he has a twin brother named Ali Abbas. Only a moustache segregates the two.
Taking the note of the characters, Abhishek in an interview claimed that he took his role lightly, as it was just a comedy. He stands to his words. The actor tries too hard to create humour at several
occasions but fails to leave any mark.
Prachi Desai playing Ajay’s sister and Asin don’t have too much to be reviewed but whatever they display compliments the scenes.
Archana Puran singh playing a fake mother of Abhishek Bachchan is lovely. And even it will be appreciable to witness the Actress after a long long time on silver screen.
Rohit Shetty stands to his promise of introducing Krishna in one of his flicks at ‘Comedy Circus’. Krishna capitalizes and makes the most out of the opportunity he is given and makes the spectators giggle.
But it was just Ajay Devgan who steals the show with his attempt to translate Hindi phrases to English. Honesty is the best mutual policy, A brother in need is a sister indeed, Necessity is the mother of Discovery Channel, When elders are getting cozy, younger don`t bring nosy, these are some dialogues which will make some of you laugh while at times will irritate.
The music by Himesh Reshammiya and Ajay-Atul fail to impress. The only song ‘Chalao na naino se Baan” makes some place at the chartbusters.
Director Rohit Shetty in Bol Bachchan is unlike in comparison to his erstwhile flicks particularly the “Golmaal” series and loses the plot. Shetty goofs up even in his trademark car chases and fight scenes.
On the whole, “Bol Bachchan” is meant for children with foolish jokes. It would be better to watch the Golmaal series at home.
