Ajay Devgn's multi-starrer Total Dhamaal is one of the big releases of 2019, and fans are eagerly waiting for the reviews to come out.
The adventure comedy has a big ensemble cast including Ajay, Riteish Deshmukh, Arshad Warsi, Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Jaaved Jaaferi, Esha Gupta, Boman Irani, Sanjay Mishra among others.
The trailer of Total Dhamaal received mixed response from the viewers as some liked it and some others did not find it impressive. But having such a big star cast and a good franchise value, the third installment of the Dhamaal series has good hype around it.
The trailer of the film suggested that the story revolves around the many characters, who all are after a big amount of hidden money. The film apparently has a good use of VFX, and includes some well-timed funny dialogues.
Some early reviews suggest that Total Dhamaal is a good entertainer with an interesting turn of events, while some other critics called it a completely dull film with no sense whatsoever.
Check some of the critics' reviews and rating for Total Dhamaal:
India Today: If you swear by comedies like Great Grand Masti and Double Dhamaal, then you just might enjoy this one. Else find something better to do with your time this week. 2/5
The Times Of India: Not only film's screenplay, but even most of the punches are predictable. For an adventure comedy, Total Dhamaal also falters in many scenes with shoddy computer graphics. While the first half is breezy, second half is overburdened with too many characters in a weak plot. Director Indra Kumar misses out on the opportunity to generate steady stream of humour. 2.5/5
Khaleej Times: Total Dhamaal is a comedy of errors. The gags are continuous and don't let you question or pause for a moment to think about what's being said in the scene. Of special mention is the appearance by the original comedy king, Johnny Lever, who lifts the entertainment with his Bengali scientist-pilot act. 2/5
Koimoi: All said and done, Total Dhamaal is a strictly one-time watch and that too on television. If you loved Dhamaal, skip this and if you liked Double Dhamaal, watch this. A classic case of too many cooks spoil the broth! 2.5/5
Gulf News: The sub-plot doesn't work and the VFX-laden animal encounter scenes seems forced. Ideally, this star-studed screwball comedy should have just stuck to the brief of showcasing the gleefully dumb and dumber bunch. However, don't hold it against them. If you are looking for a comedy that thrives on nonsense, more than sense, then you have signed up for the right ride. 2.5/5
Bollywood Hungama: On the whole, TOTAL DHAMAAL is a 'leave-your-brains-behind-at-home' entertainer with its share of funny moments. If you are not looking for wisdom and rationale in a light-hearted entertainer, then this movie is definitely for you. At the box office, it's only the masses who might give the film thumbs up and they'll majorly determine the fate of the film from Monday onwards. 2.5/5
Despite flaws, and a few over the top sequences, #TotalDhamaal is a fair clean entertainer that can be enjoyed with the entire family. It's definitely an improvement over #DoubleDhamaal. Should cruise past the Rs 100 crore mark as per my understanding!— Himesh (@HimeshMankad) February 22, 2019
3 Stars! #TotalDhamaal
Indra Kumar's #TotalDhamaal is a full on clean laughter fest that's meant to be watched with the entire family. First half is a riot and keeps you entertained thoroughly. Second half is good fun too. You'd carry several moments with you and they'd make you smile later..— Faridoon Shahryar (@iFaridoon) February 22, 2019
