Indra Kumar's Dhamaal is one of those mad-cap looney capers that just keeps pulling one gag after another to keep you in splits. Its non-stop complete nonsense stuff but its total dhamaal.
The story is about 4 totally whacko friends, of which Arshad Warsi and Javed Jaffery are brothers named Adi and Maanav!!! The other 2 comprise of Ritesh playing an idiot who thinks he's sherlock and the fourth Ashish, is a Parsi deekro, whos always being slapped around by his father Asrani. These 4 idiots find out about a buried bag containing 10 crores and then their complete beserk adventure to get the money starts. They are followed by none other than Sanjay Dutt who plays a police man, who also wants the money. The journey is complete with nonsense, non-stop idiotic gags and it keeps u totally involved, even though you keep going "Kuch Bhi!!!" but you are saying it while u are laughing ur hats off! The movie is filled with many other characters that add to the harakiri!
Indra Kumar comes out trumps with a totaly Mad Mad movie, which is clean and watchable with the whole family. Specially after Masti, this is a great comeback to clean comedy! Though the film cud have been edited a little, I do not want to knitpick, bcos I had great fun. Hritesh and Arshad play their roles with ease. Its their zone and they do those crazy things easily. But the man who steals the show, with his Child like innocense is Javed Jaffery. This man is completely bonkers and makes u go bonkers aswell. After that superb character from Salaam Namaste, Jaaved comes back with another rocking role. The 4th hero, is just about passable and Sanjay sleepwalks thru his role - its a piece of cake for him!, but its not really about him anyways. This one doesnt belong to the characters, or the script, but to the totally whacko chain of gags pulled one after another from the directors bag of tricks. Enjoy this Looney Toon, do Dhamaal!
