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.

Time-Pass!
7 July 2012 | by namashi_1See 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.
