Total dhamaal isn't dhamaal
1: A very over hipped up film for the masses which contains a lot of sleazy and predictable comedy.
Now if this film would have released in say the beginning of 2018 then maybe it could have won the masses hearts but with the success of badhai ho etc the masses have also decided to love good stories and not the cast so now let us go to our section which is
Things that may work
1. CAST: The biggest thing that can bring the audience to the theater is the cast which mostly all these big budget films try to do. The mantra for success for a hit in India is the *CAST BRINGS THE MASS*
2.CHILDREN: The reason why many people will go although even not liking the content is the children. Kids need such films THEY CAN'T BE BORN AS CRITICS RIGHT? If you are dying to get the sweet kiss from your kid then don't read this review and just go to the hall and enjoy
3. DHAMAAL: the first film of the franchise has a fair amount of cult. Hence the people may go for it seeking a similar film
THING WHICH MAY NOT WORK
1. WORD OF MOUTH: Mark my word this film is not going to get a good word of mouth as till the end of the film you feel the sense of sleaze and would not try to experience this again.
2 NO CREATIVITY: I hate films which are made with the same story but with a bigger budget (e.g baaghi 2)coz the story of this film is just the same as Jamaal
DHAMAAL TOTAL DHAMAAL
The secret was of ten crores The secret is of 50 crores
The classic helicopter scene The same helicopter scene
The same ending
NOW let's MOVE ON TO THE REVIEW
Acting: To be frank none of the actors put an impact on me at the end.No one could be remembered like KAMLI (Sanju). Even great actors like Sanjay Mishra and Ajay Devgn didn't put an impact on me Sanjay Mishra kept on calling Ajay Devgn bro and after a point it became irritating.
SONGS: The songs of the film is PURE S***. I Hated them the lyrics are less the background score is louder and irritating.
WRITING: THERE IS NOT MUCH WRITING DONE FOR THIS FILM EXCEPT FOR BRO BRO BRO BRO BRO AND SOME STUPID SLAPSTICK PUNCHES
SCREENPLAY: SCREENPLAY IS LAZILY PENNED. EACH CHARACTER DOES NOT KNOW WHY THEY ARE DOING AND WHAT.
VFX: The only thing to go for this film is the vfx IF YOU LIKE TO WATCH SUCH STUFF THEN GO FOR IT
ANIMALS: The adventure part of the film with animals is also a thing to go for but if i just wanted to see animals on screen then i would rather go to a zoo.
FINAL VERDICT: IF YOU HAVE A FAMILY WITH KIDS THEN DO GO FOR THIS FILM. BUT IF YOUR FAMILY IS INTERESTED IN GOOD CINEMA THEN DON'T JAM YOUR HEADS AND EMPTY YOUR POCKETS ON THIS FILM. I would rather watch GULLY BOY OR URI THIS WEEK IF I WOULD BE GOING ALONE.
SORRY FOR THE LENGTHY REVIEW I'LL MAKE IT SHORT NEXT TIME AND DO MARK IT HELPFUL IF YOU LIKED IT
