Bol Bachchan Movie Review
Bol Bachchan (Hindi)
Release Date:July 06, 2012
'A lie may take care of the present but it has no future' but when a person lies to the Akhada king of Ranakpur - Prithviraj Raghuvanshi (Ajay Devgn), he makes sure that the person is left with no future ahead.
A young boy from Delhi, Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan) has been drowning in his financial problems which lead him to his well wisher, Shastri's house in Ranakpur where he comes down to have a proper job to take care of himself and his sister Sania (Asin). Abbas accidentally falls prey to an indistinct situation which makes him lie about his name in front of the villagers in Ranakpur. This uncertain incident plays a very important twist in Abbas's life.
He lands up working as a supervisor under the strong Akhada king and an absolute lie hater Prithviraj Raghuvanshi. Destiny forces Abbas Malik to perpetrate a series of lies in front of his lie - hater boss!
A single person acting as two different entities, Abbas's topsy-turvy journey makes him lie lie and keep lying to his boss who hates liars to the core. The fear of getting caught by his Akhada king lie hater boss ultimately turns Abbas into an Absolute 'Bol Bachchan'
Bol Bachchan isn’t so much a film as a series of gags strung together with songs and the requisite car-bashing action. There is no attempt at plotting, storytelling, delineating a character, building coherence or following logicRead more
Bol Bachchan offers a few genuine laughs, but it's too long and too labored to describe as a pleasing filmRead more
Over-crowded, over-the-top, overboard, overlong flick, with not an ounce of subtletyRead more
Seeks inspiration from the classic but suffers from tacky sets, over-the-top acting and loud jokes and gagsRead more
Bol Bachchan, less blaring than your standard Rohit Shetty comedy, can give you sporadic chuckles, and a few helpess laughs. Can’t expect moreRead more
Bol Bachchan falls short of being a laugh riot in spite of having the ammunition for itRead more
Far from being LOL stuff, Bol Bachchan ends up being Bore Bachchan, with a lame climaxRead more
Even the genuinely funny bits are lost in a deluge of recycled jokes, preposterous situations, over the top 'drama'Read more
The worst remake of a film since Ram Gopal Varma Ki AagRead more
Fairly entertainingRead more
The film is undoubtedly Rohit Shetty’s worst, has insufferable doses of homophobia, Islamophobia and crude assaults on the senses and the intellectRead more
Rohit Shetty takes the marvellous mild-mannered comedy classic, squeezes every drop of joy and wit out of it, and hangs it out to dry. It is murder most foul.Read more
Shetty banks on innuendo, puns, religion and cheap comments on sexual orientation to add to the comedy value. Only that it’s not always in good tasteRead more
Bol Bachchan is a comedy so absurd that it could reduce you to tears of despair. Conversely, if you have the stomach for such rampant silliness, it might propel you into paroxysms of delightRead more
Bol Bachchan is yet another low IQ comedy from the Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn teamRead more
Bol Bachchan has a constant up-and-down aspect to it, one sequence making you shriek in your seat with laughter, another sending your mind wandering off to the mundaneRead more
A dhamaal entertainerRead more
