Total Dhamaal review

Story of the movie: 

A small-time crook Guddu (Ajay Devgn) and his accomplice Jonny (Sanjay Mishra) steal black money worth Rs 50 crore from a corrupt Police commissioner, played by Boman Irani. However, Guddu’s another partner Pinto (Manoj Pahwa) double crosses him, and runs away with the cash. Incidentally, three other pairs – a Gujarati couple Bindu (Madhuri Dixit) and Avinash Patel (Anil Kapoor), two brothers Adi (Arshad Warsi) and Manav (Jaaved Jaaferi), a Bhojpuri thug Lallan (Riteish Deshmukh) and his friend (Pitobash Tripathy) – come across a dying Pinto, who tells them about a zoo where the cash is hidden. All of them come to the conclusion of whoever reaches and gets to the treasure first, wins it. Who finally gets to snatch away the treasure makes the crux of the story.

Star Performance:

Despite comedy being one of the toughest genres, Total Dhamaal is not the kind of movie that relies on performances. Sanjay Mishra is a brilliant actor but he hardly has any punch-line strong enough to make you laugh. Anil and Madhuri’s bickering also adds humour to the plot. Ajay and others are just fine in their acts.

Music Direction:

The film’s music is okay.


The film’s direction is okay. The film lacks in the expected humour quotient. There are some genuinely funny moments in the first half. Some of the scenes and dialogues are just too dull. The script of the film could be even better.

Watch Or Not:

You can watch it once!
