Storyline

Gopal, Lucky, Madhav and Laxman - four guys bound together by their child-like notoriety, aimlessness and petty business of conning people for fun and money. Laxman is an intelligent student who is not allowed to pass by his mischievous band of friends Gopal, Madhav and mute Lucky. This is because all four friends use his hostel room to conduct their activities. He is peer-pressured into running a series of scams in order to earn himself and his friends some money. Once thrown out of college bag-n-baggage, the naughty foursome finds refuge in the bungalow of a blind couple as their grandson. A cat mouse game unfolds as Laxman's body and Gopal's voice makes for Sameer (The grandson from US). Each time the blinded Dadaji comes amidst them, hilarious situations arise Enter Nirali with a bath towel and the group now have time, place and 'resources' to fall in love. Their individual efforts at winning the lady's heart, fail, resulting in rib tickling comic scenes. Apart from their amorous ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Good comedy - at last!
31 July 2006 | by mehta-nishankSee all my reviews

After a string of pathetic comedy films in 2006 (Tom,Dick and Harry , Malamaal Weekly, ChupChupke, Pyare-Mohan, etc.), Golmaal comes as a pleasant surprise. Golmaal is essentially a laughter riot, driven by an outrageous but rib-tickling plot. Howver, it is not the storyline that clinches it for the film - it is the amazing chemistry that the four male lead actors (Devgan, Kapoor, Warsi and Sharman Joshi) share that gives the film the requisite 'kick'. The film naturally has its share of flaws - negligible part of heroine, wastage of a stalwart like Paresh Rawal, a damp ending, but all in all, the film is a humorous treat.

Ajay Devgan discovers new acting horizons with this role, while Arshad Warsi and Sharman Joshi cement their identities as comedy-specialists. In the end you just hope that the director has showed a better casting acumen by casting someone other than the hapless Tusshar Kapoor (needs to revisit the acting school) , as the mute prankster.

Vishal-Shekhar's music is trendy . Watch out for the the black-n-white track featuring Paresh Rawal and his on-screen wife that has a 1940's feel to it.
