Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again is Another Diwali Weekend Blockbuster.
Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again is Another Diwali Weekend Blockbuster but with no recall value, though the film has done the much needed alleviation work which the box office required. After the success of Judwaa 2 and now Golmaal Again industry can take a sigh of relief, they can wait for Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai with their head held high to end this year on a high note. Judwaa and Golmaal further proves that brainless masala films are never going to take the back seat in India, also franchise films are making moolah at the cash windows be it Baahubali early this year or now these two, I am sure 60% of film makers are already planning to make sequels of their shit sorry hit commercial films because audiences have given their verdict, they want brainless things, logic is not required only black magic is what people want because I don’t think Golmaal has any positive magic in it. My opinion on the recent Golmaal film does not count because it is already a big hit making approximately 88 CR at the domestic box office and $3.17 million USD in Overseas. This is Ajay Devgn and Rohit Shetty’s 10th film together and out of that 8 have been hits or more, if you look at the recent past Ajay Devgn has survived because of Rohit Shetty collaboration apart from that no film has done anything significant for Devgn at the box office barring Drishyam which was critical success and made some profits too.
Even with Shah Rukh Khan, Rohit Shetty has given two 300 CR worldwide films despite the second one Dilwale was not received well, so we need to give the credit to Shetty for his knack of reaching out to the down and out Indian middle/lower middle class people. They want the madness that Rohit Shetty presents on screen. I also laughed here and there while watching the film but more because of the actors like Sanjay Mishra, Johnny Lever and yes Nana Patekar not because of the storyline or punches. I am not a fan of Golmaal Franchise, I found this film also useless, certainly not my kind of cinema. I like comedies but not Shetty style. These are the films which people don’t remember a wee bit after coming out of the theaters. The horror comedy genre in India is still struggling quality wise but as far as the quantity is concerned, well we have Golmaal Again.
