Time-Pass!
7 July 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rohit Shetty's Much Awaited 'Bol Bachchan' is a Time-Pass Fare, that shouldn't be taken seriously. Its strictly pop-corn entertainment, that doesn't even attempt to be remotely remarkable. If having fun at the movies is what you're looking for, then 'Bol Bachchan' is waiting for you.

'Bol Bachchan', inspired by the classic 'Gol Maal', tells the story of how one man's lie, leads to a puzzle of confusions.

'Bol Bachchan' has a hilarious first-hour, with each passing scene standing out. The interval point, is simply superb. However, the second-hour loses pace & the climax seems a bit stretched.

Yunus Sajawal's Screenplay is funny & entertaining, but it definitely could've been stronger in the latter hour. A Special Mention for the dialogue written by Sajid-Farhad. The dialogue are simply hilarious! Rohit Shetty's Direction is good. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are efficient. Action-Sequences are over-the-top. Music by Himesh Reshammiya & Ajay-Atul, is energetic.

Performance-Wise: Ajay Devgn is excellent, yet again! He very playfully plays his part & delivers the funniest lines with ease. His broken English is sure to bring the house down. Abhishek Bachchan does an equally good job. The actor scores as Abhishek & is simply flawless as Abbas Ali. Asin & Prachi Desai get limited scope & they both deliver mediocre performances. Krushna Abhishek, Asrani, Neeraj Vora & Archana Puran Singh are simply fantastic in supporting roles. Amitabh Bachchan appears in the title track.

On the whole, 'Bol Bachchan' works till it lasts.
