Dhol audience ka Bajega
28 November 2007 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

After 'films' like 'Hulchul', 'Garam Masala', 'Bhagam Bhag', 'Bhool Bulaiyaa' and whatever crap, director Priyadarshan has gained the reputation of being one of the worst directors today. 'Dhol' only further confirms that spot. I got to watch this piece of litter when I was visiting my parents.

'Dhol' too features some of the worst actors (e.g. Tanushree Dutta, Rasika Joshi, Tushar Kapoor etc). There is no story. Direction is ...well, there is no direction. All the performances are of abysmal quality. Rajpal Yadav is the only one who's remotely funny but I'd advise his fans to watch something else, well, pretty much anything else. The songs are better forgotten except Payal Rohatgi's item number which is pleasant to the ears. This is one tacky film that should be seriously avoided.
