Storyline

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.

Lacks the magic of its prequel,but this is better than the recent comedies at least!
23 June 2011 | by salianmoviereviewSee all my reviews

Just saw Double Dhamaal in Bahrain.

Double Dhamaal directed by Indra Kumar is hilarious.

For Double Dhamaal,I did not search for logic or story instead just a few jokes and the outcome WAS really outstanding.

Double Dhamaal lacks the magic of its prequel Dhamaal,but sure it is better than the recent comedies.

Yes,Double Dhamaal might be loud but at the same time it is humorous.

Talking about the story,it is okay.

The screenplay is penned very well.

The comedy here is excellent.

The dialogs are smart.

The music is average.

Performances-Ritesh,Arshad,Ashish and Javed are excellent in their respective roles.Ritesh Deshmukh is too good as Roy.Arshad Warsi stands out as Adi.Ashish Chaudary is funny as Boman and Javed Jaffery shines as Manav.Sanjay Dutt is revelation.Mallika and Kangana act very well.Mallika looks bewitching in "Jalebi Bai" and acts very well.Kangana Ranaut is very good and she has shown improvement in her diction,which is good.Satish Kaushik in a cameo rocks as Bata Bhai.He is so funny.Zakir Hussain is average.

On the whole Double Dhamaal is excellent entertainer and one of the best comedies to come in the recent years.
