Storyline

When a child falls into the well of the temple and Abbas breaks the temple's lock to save the child. When Prithviraj arrives at the scene, Ravi says Abbas's name as Abhishek Bachchan to avoid religious controversies of a temple being broken open by a Muslim. Prithviraj hires Abhishek Bachchan (Abbas) and is happy with his work, but Ravi and his friends have to come up with a new plan when Prithviraj spots Abbas celebrating Eid as a Muslim. Abbas and the others convince Prithviraj that the one celebrating Eid was actually 'Abbas', an effeminate man and classical Kathak dancer. Things become worse for Abbas and Ravi when Prithviraj kindly hires Abbas for teaching Kathak to his sister Radhika (Prachi Desai). The more Abbas tries to manage his dual life without letting Prithviraj know, the more he has to lie to cover up other lies; this forms the crux of the story.

Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn rock,movie sucks!
8 October 2012 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Bol Bachchan directed by Rohit Shetty is a tiresome movie.

The movie follows the same routine of Rohit Shetty movies:A plain story,some idiotic car chase sequences,ironic stunts and monotonous hamming by the actors.

Bol Bachchan does offer some laughs but they are far and between.Even the title track featuring Amitabh Bachchan along with the movie's lead actors is bland.

Story: Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan) lives in Karol Bagh, New Delhi with his sister Sania(Asin Thottumkal). They are legally fighting for an ancestral property - land case. But the odds turn against them and they lose. Their well wisher, Shastri Chacha (Asrani), advises and convinces them to migrate to his village Ranakpur where he assures Abbas that he will get him a job at his owner's place. The owner being none other than the powerful Prithviraj Raghuvanshi(Ajay Devgn). Abbas enters Ranakpur village and while saving a child trapped inside a temple, he breaks open the lock of an ancestral temple but fate plays an important twist in Abbas' life as the whole village including Prithviraj's step-brother Vikrant opposes Abbas' actions but Prithviraj arrives and handles the situation. On being asked his name, Abbas's friend comes out with a fake name, as it would create a rage if villagers came to know that the lock of a temple had been broken by a Muslim. From here starts a series of cover-ups, goof-ups and comic situations where to cover one lie, Abbas starts padding up with a bigger lie telling people that he also has a twin brother with no mustache. From here on starts the Topsy-turvy journey of a single person acting as two different entities.

The saving grace of the movie is the performances of Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn.Abhishek Bachchan is awesome,although he gets over-the-top at times,he rocks!Ajay Devgn plays the role of Prithicraj Raghuvanshi with panache.His Hindi-translation English lines are humorous.

The direction is bad.

The music is fine.

The dialogs are excellent, especially the ones delivered by Ajay Devgn.

The action sequences are bland.

Performances: As mentioned above,Abhishek Bachchan and Ajay Devgn,are the only ones who manage to bring smile on your faces.The rest of the actors do not deserve a mention because they either just come in and say two-three dialogs(Prachi Desai and Asin) or start hamming(Asrani,Neeraj Vora,Krishna Abhishek and Archana Puran Singh).

All in all,Bol Bachchan is the same routine Rohit Shetty movie,which has got a bit more worse.I am giving it a three on ten.Watch at your own risk!
