Dhamaal Movie Review
Dhamaal Movie Review – By Anuradha


Buddha Mar Gaya had taught me a lesson, never judge a movie by its cast. So with zero expectations I entered the movieplex to watch Dhamaal directed by Indra Kumar (Masti, Ishq). I have been a fan of Indra Kumar since his Ishq days but his last few movies (Pyaare Mohan, Rishtey) have been disappointing. So what’s the verdict on Dhamaal? Is it a laugh riot? Is Indra Kumar back in form?

First the Story

Dhamaal is a grass root comedy movie about four goofy, useless youngsters and a cop Kabir Nayak (Sanjay Dutt). The foolhardy gang of four includes Roy (Riteish Deshmukh), who feels his purpose of birth is to be the best detective. Aditya Shrivastav (Arshad Warsi) also called Adi is the jack of none with half knowledge, adds to the great proficiency of this half-boiled group. His brother Manav Shrivastav (Javed Jaffery) is always merry but unaware of the fact that he tops the list of idiots. Last but not the least is the all time petrified Boman Contractor (Aashish Chowdhury). His worst nightmare is his father, Nari Contractor (Asrani).

The idea of work for this adorable gang of idiots is small time conning. In this process they get themselves juggled into a life threatening yet a witty and amusing situation. The chase begins when they get involved in the murder of Bose (Prem Chopra), a notorious criminal on whom police inspector Kabir Nayak (Sanjay Dutt) had set eyes on. The criminal informs the four about a hidden treasure that makes their lives even more ecstatic. But Kabir desperate for his promotion gets suspicious on the idiotic troop. One misfortune leads to another and the fool hardy’s get trapped into hilarious situations that are side-splitting.

Movie Review

Dhamaal starts off brilliantly. The perfect execution of the script by the director combined with the brilliant comic timing of the actors hold the film together in the first half, which is filled with jokes that are extremely funny. While the introduction of the 4 characters is funny, the car break-down scene and the chemistry between the 4 lead characters gets the house down. The first half sets up the atmosphere and the mood for a even better and funnier second half. But unfortunately the second half slightly disappoints. The pace dips, the jokes are no longer as funny as they were. The introduction of a few more characters in the latter half too does not help.

Director Indra Kumar is back in form after the disastrous Pyaare Mohan although he ought to have worked harder, especially on the second half. Hats off to the director, for delivering a comic caper without a female character. No love angle, miniskirts and deep necked tops. This is certainly a welcome change… The music by Adnan Sami is good.


For Sanjay Dutt, its a been there, done it a million times kind of role. He sleepwalks through it. Arshad Warsi is as always outstanding. Riteish Deshmukh stand out with a brilliant performance. He even manages to outshine Arshad Warsi in a few scenes. Javed Jaffery has a role that resembles Hrithik Roshan in Koi Mil Gaya. He carries off the role of a funny mentally challenged guy with confidence and delivers a stellar performance. Aashish Chaudhary manages to make an impact. Arsani, Tiku Talsania, Vijay Raaz and the rest of the cast is good.

Indicine.com Movie Verdict

Overall, Dhamaal is a complete time pass entertainer. Its not a sex comedy filled with vulgar one liners, but a clean Family entertainer. Personally for me, the first half itself was Paisa Vasool.

My rating for Dhamaal would be 3 and a half on 5 stars.

Rating: ★★★½☆

However, if you are getting that loan through a regular loan service then you need to be ready to have a co-signer ready to allow you to. The lenders may base their very own decision using a few aspects but the most important will be your credit ratings. There are some loan merchants that will likewise look at your job history and come to a decision based on this but in almost all cases it will be based on on your credit score.

They could taste very good, but refined foods have got very little vitamins and minerals, making you take more just to have enough electricity to get throughout the day.

  • Thanks for sharing your ideas with this blog. As well, a delusion regarding the finance institutions intentions whenever talking about home foreclosure is that the loan company will not take my repayments. There is a certain quantity of time which the bank is going to take payments here and there. If you are very deep inside the hole, they should commonly demand that you pay the payment entirely. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of installments at all. When you and the bank can have the ability to work anything out, your foreclosure method may halt. However, if you ever continue to neglect payments beneath new program, the foreclosures process can just pick up where it left off.
