Storyline

After losing a huge sum to a police officer, Kabir Nayak; four slackers: Aditya Shrivastav, Boman Contractor, Manav Shrivastav and Deshbandhu Roy find themselves unemployed and broke. Then they come upon Kabir, who apparently lives a wealthy lifestyle now along with his wife, Kamini, and sister, Kiya. They intrude in his life, find out he is having an affair with a woman named Gulabo, and blackmail him into making them partners. They also rope in a gangster-turned-Sadhu, Bata Bhai, into investing in an oil project - but are humiliated and go on the run after finding that Kabir has conned them. With an enraged Bata on their tail, the hapless foursome manage to escape to Macau with the help of a gangster, Mohsin Bhai. It is here they will run into Kabir - who is now the owner of 'Four Jokers' Casino - and make elaborate plans to avenge their humiliation as well as ensure that he winds up alone and penniless.

Nothing Close To The original
27 June 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The original Dhamaal was a rip off from an assortment of Hollywood releases but still it was one of the best comedies i have seen.Double Dhamaal is simply another worthless & disappointing sequel like Bheja Fry 2.

In this installment the idiot foursome is back and try to take revenge against Kabir(Sanjay Dutt)as now he is a rich conman.The plot moves from India to Macau in the second half without any improvement.The jokes & gags get repetitive and the chemistry between the leads is missing which made Dhamaal such fun.Javed Jaffrey is funny in parts while Ashish Chaudhury is simply irritating to watch.The other two leads Arshad & Riteish had been doing these same stupid roles from the onset of their careers and sleepwalk through their roles.Sanjay Dutt looks lost while seeing Kangana & Mallika act we realize why there weren't any female leads in the original Dhamaal.It would have been much better had they only been used for the item numbers.

In short the cinematography,music,plot has got nothing new to offer & though there are some funny moments they are few & far in between so at more than two hours it gets bland & boring.Avoid this if you value your time & only if you are desperate to watch it rent a DVD.
