Golmaal 3 - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

Any decent movie must either tell a good story or provide good experience. Though there is not much to call a story in Golmaal 3, it does provide a good experience nevertheless. Also, it is a mad caper spoof of several Bollywood movies – both retro and current.

Thumbs down by Samrat Sharma, fullhyd.com ... The rest of the film, burdened as it is by Johnny Lever and Mukesh Tiwari's nefarious doings on top of eight actors doing their thing to bring out the laughs, fails to fly, and instead crashes and burns often, and with amazing accuracy. ... full review

Thumbs up by Divya Solgama, Gomolo.in ...well supported by Arshad Warsi who was wasted in part 2... full review

Thumbs down by Mayank Shekhar, Hindustan Times ...The filmmakers have six main actors to juggle with, and as many side comedians to lend parts to. There’s a deadline (Diwali) to meet. Never mind the narrative, they’d be happy with as any corny antics and dialogues with whoever’s available. You can cheat shots for actors not present. Shoddiness shows.... full review

So-So by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...It’s the funniest scene in the film, because nobody says a word throughout, and because the expressions of the actors are priceless as they react to the pain that must come from being sodomized by foreign objects.... full review

Thumbs down by Kaveree Bamzai, india today ...From Johnny Lever to Vrijesh Hirjee who does his no longer funny snake dance, from Ashwini Kalsekar, the English speaking fisherwoman, to Mukesh Tiwari, the "vasooli" who doesnt understand her but loves her anyway, they seem far more interesting than either Shreyas Talpade or Tusshar Kapoor.... full review

So-So by Komal Nahta, koimoi ...while the emotional aspect fails to have the desired impact, it does rob the film of its USP – comedy!... full review

Thumbs up by Sarita Tanwar, MiD DAY ...Johnny Lever's jet-ski sequence is a bit stretched and hampers the flow to some extent.... full review

Thumbs down Mixed Bag ...Kareena didn’t overact; Johnny Lever went overboard, but good; Arshad Warsi and Ratna Pathak Shah’s acts were nicely balanced throughout the movie. ... full review

So-So Movie Talkies ...Shetty's homage to Mithun is really well appreciated as he re creates the 'Disco Dancer' persona of the actor along with the two evergreen numbers, 'I am a Disco Dancer' and 'yaad aa raha hai'. But did he then have to spoil the whole effect and have that entire episode of the dog fastening himself to Pritam's rear end?... full review

Thumbs down by Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running.com ...The minor characters of Johnny Lever, Sanjay Mishra, Mukesh Tiwari and Murli Sharma shine better than the main cast. ... full review

Thumbs up by Sethumadhavan , Passion for Cinema ...What’s also interesting is that it’s not the actual Golmaal gang which contributes to the fun, but it’s a host of others who really deserve the credit for making the movie watchable... full review

Thumbs up by Ankit Ojha, Planet Bollywood ...Cinematography is extremely good; you can actually see some really good frame composition here, combined with captivating visuals... full review

Thumbs down by Raja Sen, Rediff ...Arshad Warsi is killing all the streetside-cred he's built up with bhai-sidekick roles by overdoing it. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters ...I cannot think of a single scene that has clever writing or a genuine comic moment.... full review

Thumbs down by Khalid Mohamed, Review and views uncensored ...Akshay Kumar bores as the Geek God. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is mediocrity personified. Aditya Roy Kapoor hogs the footage but is unequal to the task.... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The film has a whiff of Basu Chaterjee’s Khatta Meetha mixed with the requisite madness of the Golmaal series.... full review

Thumbs up by K K Rai, STARDUST ...The movie successfully tickles your funny bones but please do not expect any brainer here. ... full review

Thumbs up by Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India ...Kareena's vibrant, vivacious and ekdum bindaas, almost in sync with the outrageous palette of colours that Rohit Shetty uses for the sets and costumes of his film. You can't be sad, mournful or morose after the colour blast -- red, yellow, orange, pink, purple -- that hits you in this over-the-top film. ... full review

So-So by flyingrodent, Upper Stall ...But that's what you are probably going for when you do watch this Diwali offering, so the length of it and the stagnation of the wafer thin plot might not hurt much. It is not pretentious, goes all out to make you laugh, even if its at the sheer silliness of it all. ... full review

Thumbs down by Kunal Guha, yahoo! India ...The film also has an unnecessary twist, possibly added to give you something to exercise your, by now, sleepy mind.... full review
