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.

In the ending of the film where the four hapless idiots are duped twice by Kabir, his wife Kamini and sister Kiya, (once in the city of Mumbai, India and later in Macau, China) and they are running for their lives out of the city of Macau escaping back to Mumbai with Johnny Bonzella and his boys chasing after them with armed pistols, they become incensed and infuriated that all of their hilarious plans were all good for nothing. Neither did they shatter Kabir's family and the one thousand crores are safely in Kabir's account. As they swear revenge turning from simple money making con artists towards rouge, corrupted criminals, Roy tells them how they will dupe Kabir thrice (this is the beginning of their plan) in the next part (third film) which indicates a sequel.

Dud Dhamaal
1 September 2011 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

The makers taking cue from "Munnabhai" and "Golmaal" could have taken forward "Dhamaal" as a franchise instead of an sequel for better creative and revenue proposition. The good news is the new "Dhamaal" has good moments in terms of fresh gags, comic timings and situational comedy. The four jokers namely Ritesh D, Arshad W, Javed F and Aashish C are usual reliable, dependable. Kangana tries her hand at comedy and does a fair job. Mallika joins the bandwagon and is not too bad either considering she does "Sheela meets Munni" in an attempt to create item song of 2011 with "Jalebi Bai". Sanjay Baba is as usual, in form.

Romantic track between Ritesh & Kangana lacks chemistry. Sanjay & Mallika's track is nonchalant. Aashish C makeover is detesting. Javed J brings in a few original one-liners. Zakir Hussain presence can be timed in seconds.

There is only song which stands out, rest are passable. In the second half, the flow loses steam and better writing was warranted.

Verdict: "Dhamaal" was certainly few notches above. The audience expected a sequel to surpass the previous outing and sadly "Double Dhamaal" fails miserably.
