Golmaal scores goal at box office
Written by Neeraj Vora and directed by Rohit Shetty Golmaal has won over the audience. The film has hit the bull’s eye at the box office. “As the tag line goes Fun Unlimited — Golmaal is definitely a non-stop laughathon,” says trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Since the film is based on a Gujarati play Aflatoon that had become a rage with the theatre-going audience, scriptwriter and director Neeraj Vora knew for certain that the film would go down well with the masses.
“From the time, I started writing the script for my play, I knew that the film was going to do well. Plus, unlike films today this was not over hyped nor had the makers adopted any marketing strategy that producers desperately attempt today. Yet, the film has received a positive response,” says Vora. Taran says that the film worked because it was not remotely similar to the comic capers released this year, Malamaal Weekly and Phir Hera Pheri. “Still it delivers what it promises enjoyable moments, amusing jokes and non-stop entertainment,” says Taran.
Taran also points out, “Writer Neeraj Vora and director Rohit Shetty’s concepts are clearly visible at the outset. There’s no effort to present a never-seen-before story. Instead, the duo pack those two-and-a-half hours with gags, punches, witty one-liners and moments that make you smile and laugh from the first scene to the last. Of course, a majority of comic portions work, but there are a few blemishes that stand out.”
Taran adds, “The local thug played by Mukesh Tiwari looks forced and unwanted and does not hold any relevance to the main plot of the film. Also, the villain played by Anupam Shyam looks unconvincing. Despite the unwanted characters and a feeble plot Golmaal succeeds in a very big way.” Taran concludes by saying, “This clean comedy with no vulgarity won’t just make the viewers laugh with its jokes, but will also make its distributors laugh all the way to the bank.”
