Obsessed with day-time TV soaps, Ekta Santoshi starts suspecting her husband, Gopal, of having an affair with an unknown woman. Not satisfied with his explanations, she decides to investigate, setting off a chain of hilarious events. These involve her dumb brother/hair-stylist, Lucky; her sister-in-law, Esha, who loves ACP Madhav Singh Ghai; two individuals both named Anthony Gonsalves; amongst many others that result in a hapless Gopal's arrest for the homicide of his co-worker, Subodh Mehra.

Leave your brains aside.... And it still is just okay
I don't know how people have given this movie a 9 or a ten, even if it very funny. A 9 or a 10 should only be given to a movie that deserves it. Golmaal Returns wants to be rated between three and five. The director himself admits that he doesn't believe that it would get any awards.
Golmaal was fun, yet I would've given it a six because my rating limit or the limit that I have imposed in my mind regarding the ratings wouldn't change. I cannot suddenly give movies like Pyaasi Aatma 6 or 7 because it absolutely doesn't deserve or want such ratings.
The sequel manages to get some laughter, but most of it it corny.The are a string of characters with a plethora of stories inserted as if the director worked in the absence of a script. The story was worse that Z-grade ones. At least the first one had a solid plot (solid in the sense visible, not strong).This one has plots within plot, making a complete stew out of it.
Well, I'll have to admit that this is a welcome change from the Yash Raj films and the Great Indian comedy show, that latter which refuses to be funny due to the presence of Siddhu who laughs like a hyena.
Tusshar Kapoor manages to raise the bar efficiently. But when the movie started with his scene at the parlor, he sounded annoying. But he managed to pull it off afterward. Ajay Devgan tries to be funny but isn't due to his rushed comic timing. The Ekta tattoo scene could've been funnier if he didn't reveal it is such a quick way.
Shreyas Talpade was really funny and his acting is the saving grace because he doesn't sound irritating. And the fourth actor.... oh yeah Arshad Warsi. He was completely wasted.
The actresses looked sexy in the first song. I wish most of their roles would've ended after that. Kareena was funny in the confusion scenes for a while but then just got too annoying. Amrita Arora, oh the new girl?... oh sorry, that Amrita Arora who has come in many B-grade movies. This is what I feel about her acting. It looked as if it was a debut film and she didn't know how to act at all.
Celina Jaitley was better than the other three girls. She was not that funny, but her acting wasn't that bad. THe fourth girl? Was there one? I don't remember. Oh, that girl whom Tusshar Kapoor has his eyes on? I thought she was an extra!
There are innumerable gay jokes. I don't know whether the director is gay, but if this film went to the U.S, this would be called 'Gay Bollywood movie'.
The Saawariya jokes were really good. I can't imagine what Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ekta Kapoor must be feeling right now, especially the latter, whose one brother got involved in making fun of her.
I'm going to go with a 4 for this movie, as I had told before. Hoping for a better sequel.
