I just don't know that why everyone hates this movie so much because
it's a million times better than the recent rubbish comedies that
lacked a single decent joke and had no story like Singh is Kinng &
Dostana. Golmaal Returns surpassed the original and was so painfully
funny that I had a sore stomach.
The story of the film is about Gopal (Ajay Devgan), who lives with his wife Ekta (Kareena Kapoor), sister Esha (Amrita Arora) and a dumb brother-in-law Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor), gets stuck in a yacht one night after he saves an attractive young woman Meera (Celina Jaitley) from the dreaded goons, while on his way back home from office. Due to the circumstances, both of them stay back on the yacht.
When he arrives home the next day, his over suspicious wife Ekta, a hard core saas-bahu serial's fan, suspects him of flirting around with his female employees. Gopal thinks that it's difficult to convince her by telling her about the incident that actually took place the prior night and hence, he invents a story about spending the night with a fictitious friend named Anthony Gonsalves. Ekta does not believe his story as she knows that he never had a friend by that name, and hence, she decides to write to Anthony to come and visit her.
Gopal then convinces one of his juniors, Laxman (Shreyas Talpade) who is Meera's boyfriend, to pretend like Anthony, and thus convince Ekta that he was indeed telling the truth. Laxman agrees to do so, and everything goes according to plan until the address on which Ekta had written a letter to Anthony turns out to be real. Meanwhile, Gopal finds out that a dead body was found at the same location where he saved Meera from the goons. The Investigating Officer Madhav (Arshad Warsi), who also happens to be Esha's boyfriend, does not get along well with Gopal. He finds out that Gopal was missing from his home that very night and that the dead person was Gopal's colleague and Gopal had threatened to kill him over a spat. Madhav also finds out that Lakshman is not the real Anthony. He asks Gopal to get Meera to the police station to prove that Gopal had been with her, not murdering his employee. In panic, his friends hire a woman called Munni who needs money to get her boyfriend Vasuli (A character from the previous Golmaal) out of jail. But Munni is kidnapped by the murderer.
In a rage, Vasuli comes to Gopal's house, where Gopal, Lakshman and Lucky learn the woman was none other than Meera. After an initial shock, they decide to go to the police station. However, Vasuli kidnaps Meera in anger, and they follow him, along Madhav, Esha and Ekta. Gopal learns that this was a plot concocted by his employer to frame him for the murder. Through a series of comic events, Ekta gets back with Gopal and they have their happy ending.
The music is also really good and the best song is Tha Karke and it is probably the most expensive song in the history of Bollywood with a budget of 10 crore. Overall Golmaal Returns is simply the comedy of the year and is one of the only films that made me laugh after a long time probably after The Simpsons Movie.
Rohit Shetty, chooses to remake an old bollywood comedy in the form of
his "Golmaal Returns". The story is heavily based on an under-rated,
1973 released, Bollywood comedy called "Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar" featuring
Kiran Kumar, Radha Saluja, I. S. Johar & Asrani. In fact Asrani also
got a Filmfare Award for his performance as "Champak Bhumiya".
The plot revolves around a suspicious wife (Kareena) and her husband (Ajay Devgan). To explain, why he was out of the house a whole night, Ajay makes up a story and then it goes on & on creating new difficulties for him. Actually Ajay was stuck while saving Celina Jaitely from some bad elements and had to spend a night in a friend's place with her. However in the original movie, the real happening was more innovative, where the hero gets stuck on a giant wheel (in an amusement park) whole night with a young girl, due to power failure.
So the idea of first main scene, borrowed, was not adapted well. Feeling a low, I still had expectations from the movie as it was progressing, but coudn't find much to laugh and enjoy since the plot was not new for me. Rohit, the director, could not create the same old magic, which was there in his first part. The film goes on & on with no strong storyline up and makes un-impactful attempts to make you laugh.
The two people who give some scenes to enjoy are Tushar & Shreyas. Tushar still shows the magic in his funny language and Shreyas displays his great talent for comedies again. Ajay Devgan was OK in his part with no support from Arshad Warsi. In simple words, Arshad is wasted in an underwritten role and has got nothing to show. Kareena plays the role of a suspicious wife in a good way, but the role was not meant for her and it looks like she was added to the cast only for more commercial values. Celina Jailtely, Amrita Arora & Anjana Sukhani, all are simply there to fill up the screen space with nothing really written for them in the script.
Instead of an original "Champak Bhumiya" (in Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar), this time we have "Anthony Gonsalves" as the imaginary character who turns out to be existing live. The name and the act done by the comedian is a great let down if compared to the original source. Whereas in the first part "Golmaal", there are rarely scenes that make you bore, here in this sequel you find it tough to find the scenes you can enjoy with a great laughter. So it is not a well made sequel, quality wise. Though it has a more glossier star-cast this time. As usual, songs are just thrown away in unwanted places just to give you break for your snacks. And moreover no particular song registers itself in your mind.
The climax is the most annoying part and is quite similar to like you have earlier seen in many "Priyadarshan" comedies. Where the entire star cast comes together on the screen and tries to generate laughter indulging themselves in some funny sequences. But here it fails to create a similar impact. So in all, the movie fails to keep the promise its name suggested, "Golmaal Returns".
However, like the current trend, if the film-makers are only interested to get a good initial in the first 3-4 days and don't care about what happens to the film later on, then "Golmaal Returns" may give them back their money. But quality cinema is no where in the frame here.

Leave your brain at home and have a blast. This is what we call an
entertainment. Just go and watch this film with your friends and have a
great time together. This is what escapist fare means for ordinary
people.Trust your instinct and enjoy this ride. Golmaal returns with
its sequel Golmaal Returns. From its promos, it turned out to be movie
which I was looking forward to watch. In fact gags shown on promos were
all so good that I wondered if they had left any gag for us to watch in
movie or not! Since movie is sequel of 2006 Golmaal which was a
laughing riot, so this movie i.e. its sequel had to lot of expectation
prior to watch. It is advertised at better than Golmaal, so obviously I
was expecting more and it did turn our pretty nice.
The star cast of the movie now includes more name like Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Celilna Jetley and now famous comedy guy Shreyas Talpade. So how much this movie succeeded on expectations. Well, talking about the performance of movie, movie is great to watch and you will enjoy it throughout but hilarious ride is not consistent and this is the biggest let down of the movie. Most probably, bad script is what we can call the culprit.But did i say to leave your brains at home?
The movie has enough twists to make it fun to watch, Ajay Devegan as Gopal has a wife Ekta (Kareena Kapoor)who finds everything suspicious. Incidentally one day while trying to save a woman named Meera (Played by Celina Jetely) from some violent stuff he ended up spending a whole night on a yacht along with Meera. Now next day when he get back to his home, he has to answer his wife Ekta but he can't tell the truth as her wife will take it otherwise. So he ended up making a fake story that he spent a night with his old time (fake) friend Anthony. She is not convinced and she ask him to call his friend to visit home. To make up the things, Gopal convinces one of his work place guy to play Anthony but meanwhile Ekta is able to contact a real person on the fake address Gopal told her for Anthony. To make things worst, it is found that the at place where Gopal spent night police had recovered a dead body.

I had expected a lot from this movie seeing the casting and previous
record of Golmaal. But have to admit this is not up to the mark.
Kareena, Tushar does a lot of over acting. A lot of Daily Soap stuff
which I did not like. Predictable story line. A bit of Adult Humour.
Dressing style of Tushar is not to the mark. Moreover this is the First Spoof Movie of Bollywood with some spoofing of Tashan, Black, Sawariya a bit action copied from Hollywood Movie "Wanted". A slow story but not too much slow. Keeps u occupied till end. A complete time pass movie. Would suggest u all to go and watch it in morning show just to save few bucks..
No twists like we saw in first part..
Ending is quite predictable with complete Bollywood stuff of happy ending.
Pros:1.Great performances by Shreyas and Tushar. Tushar brings a smile on your face with his antics. 2.Crisp dialogues are a highlight of this film. 3.Ajay Devgan essays his role very well. 4.On the whole, very funny film. Cons:1.A very weak script spoils the film. 2.Film is dragged in the second half. 3.Some characters are unnecessary. 4.Arshad Warsi is wasted. 5.Music is one dimensional. Verdict: Overall, it is an entertaining film to say the least. However, some poor editing and bad script writing are blemishes on the film. To cut a long story short, GR is NOT a worthy sequel to Golmaal-1. You can watch it, if pure humour and baseless entertainment is your cup of tea.
Oh man!!!!!!Seems like the sequels are going overboard with the success
of PHIR HERA PHERI, KRISSH, DHOOM 2 But this film thankfully didn't
become a big hit The film is nothing but actually a typical senseless
brainless comedy Actually nowadays it's become a formula for a hit
comedy: It should have 4 actors It should have some heroines who get
some scope here and there it should have senseless running around jokes
It should have jokes on other actors and films oh damn This film has
all this in excess The film is a copy of AAJ KI TAAZA KHABBAR(1973), A
film i came to know only when i read about it on the newspapers and
reviews after this film released The film is just boring sadly, none of
the jokes made me laugh mostly there are some funny ones like Ajay
changing channels of the TV and then some more But mostly the film has
c grade type of jokes already done to death What with, Tusshar and
Shreyas doing a tom and jerry type cartoon comedy in their first scene
together The story is non existent, comedy is unbearable and not even
funny mostly Many scenes are just unwanted and the much hyped THA KAR
KE comes across as stupid and forced
he climax is one of the worst climaxes of all time, actually takes the film to the death completely
Rohit Shetty should get off his comedies and try something better Music is okay, luckily only 1 song in the screenplay
Performances Ajay Devgan doesn't overact, and does well in some scenes but his role is hardly that great, for him Shreyas Talpade is quite funny at places, especially in the scene where he acts like a girl
Tusshar repeats his GOLMAAL act with even more weird noises Arshad Warsi seems to have just seen a DVD of a Marathi comedy film, or some south comedy and overacts and hams so badly it hurts Vrajesh Hirjee is boring Kareena is unbearable, she doesn't impress Amrita Arora and Anjana are as good as not there Murli Sharma just repeats his earlier act Sanjay Mishra is typecast, while Celina Jaitley has her moments
This movie is so stupid that it's funny.I was expecting this movie to be like golmaal-fun unlimited but what I got was all comedy shows wrapped into one.I had a blast with this movie.The jokes are classic.The story lacks some stuff but with the funny chaos going in the movie you have to love it.The music is average with tha kar ke and the title song being the favorite.Performances of Ajay,Shreyas,Tusshar and Arshad are superb.Although Arshad doesn't get a lot of scope.Kareena is the best of the girls.Celina and Amrita are strictly okay.The rest of the cast is good. In conclusion leave your brain at home and have a blast.Golmaal Returns does return and is bigger and better.

Golmaal Returns is a sequel to Golmaal and a remake of Kiran Kumar's
Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar.
Even though this is supposed to be a sequel but it has no simlarites with the original.Just the name of the characters are same but the characters are not.
Ajay Devgan is funny but sometimes he overdoes it here Tusshar has repeated his act from Golmaal and has rocked the movie Arshad's character I don't know how became a cop and overacts here a bit too much I don't know why would Rohit Shetty replace Sharman Joshi with Shreyas Talpade cause he is annoying as hell and make you wanna forget about the film and leave Kareena overacts and so do the other girls Mukesh Tiwari as Vasuli,Ashwini Khalsekar as Munni and Sharat Saxena as Bablu Pachisia have rocked
The song 'Tha Kar Ke' is fully copied from Rajniant's 'Sivaji - The Boss'. The scene shown in that song is just copied fully. Besides this the whole movie is a copy of one or the other movie. Although funny, its a copy of several movies in one movie. If you don't see the copying part, the movie is entertaining. Only you can't give credits to Rohit as he has just copied. Arshad as usual was best. Besides him, Tusshar was good too. But Ajay and Shreyas are ridiculous. I don't know why Rohit takes him. he is just good for serious roles. All heroines except Celina were good. Amrita was average. Other two have don't a good job. The movie has no story at all. Just a bag of mixed gags. See the movie once. You will enjoy it.
This is an excellent example of comedy movie for bollywood's pathetic,
brainless comedy filmmakers.
Certainly Golmal Returns is very up-scale in bollywood comedy, a REAL comedy in recent days. It was really funny, and entertaining with a good repeat value. It took great effort from every aspect of film making, right from actors to screenplay, direction, carefully crafted dialogs with great timing, and sound effects. Ajay, Shreyas, Tushar, Karina did a wonderful job.
There are many so called "comedy movies" made in bollywood having big star line like Salman Khan, Akki, Govinda and recent new comers. They think we viewers are stupid and they can through any BS at us. Where the only good thing in the movie is their expensive star line and everything else is from gutter, no sense in the story/script, no direction, no dialogs, the "monkey comedy".
Anybody who wants to produce a comedy movie in bollywood should learn from Golmal Returns. 10 out of 10.
