Humshakals is showing in the theatres and the verdict is out. The movie is nine times the dull, well that's how are in-house reviewer has quoted it. Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor are all seen in triple roles in this movie. But they are not the first to do a triple role like this.
Much before these actors could even think of doing such a thing,
Amitabh Bachchan had started this
triple role trend in his movie Mahaan. By the time he did this
movie he already had a bunch of double roles movies to his credit
like the Don, The Great Gambler, Desh Premi and so on. Our
superstar Rajinikanth has also done triple roles.
But for those you haven't watch his movie, I am not going to be
revealing the name, read the photo feature to find in which movie
he has done triple roles.
Now the movie which has brought the triple role trend into focus
in Humshakals, and if wikipedia is anything to go by, it is a story
of the confusion and mayhem that takes place when three individuals
who have a lookalike of a lookalike, all with the same name. Ashok
(Saif Ali Khan) and Kumar (Riteish Deshmukh) are best friends and
both are unaware of their lookalikes Ashok (Saif Ali Khan) and
Kumar (Riteish Deshmukh), who are also best friends and are unaware
of their lookalikes Ashok (Saif Ali Khan) and Kumar (Riteish
Deshmukh), who again are best friends. And then there is Mamaji
(Ram Kapoor) who is a lookalike of another Mamaji (Ram Kapoor) who
in turn is a lookalike of another Mamaji (Ram Kapoor).
Now was that hilarious to read or what. Anyways now that the big
joke has been cracked, let's check out the actors who have done
triple roles in movies.
