Trains ramming into cars, falling bridges, roaring wild cats and collision taking place landing helicopters. Director Indra Kumars Total Dhamaal leaves every part of little to imagination in creating a noisy comedy. However, the ensemble star cast aside, this movement for comic adventure turns into a misadventure beautiful yet to be on the subject of in its ride.To begin at the forefront, the films try is weaker than the rickety bridge we have seen in the promo. But it hinges a propos many strong shoulders, who manage despite obvious flaws in the writing. The film opens roughly quite a paisa vasool note considering the grand title tune introducing each one of them. They are unexpectedly bunged in together in an unconvincing plot viewpoint. While everyone is in pairs of two, its the magical pairing of Anil and Madhuri that brings out the most LOL moments. The duo yet part a crackling chemistry and an impeccable partnership for comedy. Anil is entertaining as the pained pati later than his amusing Gujarati accent and Madhuri uses her natural flair for Marathi to hit all the right comic explanation. While Ajay Devgn performs skillfully within the limitations of his ill written setting, its the otherwise excellent Sanjay Mishra, who comes off as grossly annoying. He continuously keeps referring to Radhe (Ajay) as bro, frustrating as soon as to force humour into the business. We have seen bigger camaraderie in the middle of Arshad Warsi and Javed Jaffrey in the previous instalments of the film. The two are largely ashore gone slapstick scenes that dont reach sufficient justice to their collective piece of legislation. Meanwhile, Riteish Deshmukh makes to your liking past his setting of a pan-chewing ruffian Lallan, who puts his mouth where the maintenance is, literally. His scenes subsequently Johnny Lever are funny. Rest of the cast once Boman Irani, Mahesh Manjrekar and Esha Gupta are wasted in halfheartedly written characters.
Not unaided films screenplay, but even most of the punches are predictable. For an adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal plus falters in many scenes behind shoddy cartoon. While the first half is breezy, second half is overburdened when too many characters in a lackluster scheme. Director Indra Kumar misses out upon the opportunity to generate steady stream of humour.
Given the ensemble cast, this film had the potential to be a comic roller coaster ride. However, the fact that the film is slapstick is not a hardship, what brings it down is poor writing and skillfulness.
