"All Is Well" is worse than landing free tickets to a Justin Bieber concert (no offence to the 'Beliebers').

Before you decide to go for the film, ask yourself the following questions: Are you in your senses? Do you have better things to do in life? Do you believe in yourself?

If the answer to all the questions is 'NO', watching this comic flick will give you a new perspective. Others can stay at home even if that means watching dubbed English movies on a weekend.

Umesh Shukla's "All Is Well" fails at many levels. The shameless destruction of talent and flimsily written characters push the story down the rabbit hole.

Indar Bhalla (Abhishek Bachchan), a struggling musician, returns to his homeland to acquire his share of the Kasol-based bakery that his father, Mr. Bhalla (Rishi Kapoor), has decided on selling off. From there begins a journey that shouldn't have been chronicled for big screen viewing.

Nimmi (Asin), the Himachali beauty who loves Indar -- a man who cares only about himself), is an absolute accessory in the film and does nothing to support the narrative.

By the end of the film or even while it's trying to convince the audience why it was made at all, you may find yourself muttering "all is well", exactly the way Aamir Khan said in "3 Idiots". That's the only way you will be able to walk out of the theatre with your mind in place.

The only bit that shines in the movie is Sonakshi Sinha's "Nachan Farrate" item number. And, this sums up why one should steer clear of "All Is Well".
