Nothing in the sequel changes, the four characters are still in competition to top the stupidity level, they are still useless, they still dream about a richie-rich life with no hard work. And then suddenly they confront their enemy, the corrupt Inspector Kabir Nayak (Sanjay Dutt). These four friends discover that Kabir is no more a cop and has become a millionaire. Out of the sheer envy they blackmail Kabir to make them his business partners. However, soon their dreams turn into nightmares. Kamini (Mallika Sherawat) Sanjay's girlfriend and Kiya (Kangana Ranaut) are well aware of the mystery. Batabhai (Satish Kaushik) is well used to make the characters life miserable.
Director Indra Kumar has once again integrated a generous dose of light moments in the film. Though Dhamaal was one of his kind slap-stick comedy. The uncontaminated comedy in Double Dhamaal works big time. The airtight screenplay (Tushar Hiranandani) also takes a part of the merit. Kumar has perfectly executed the script with a brilliant comic timing. The credit of the film cannot be given alone to the script, the chemistry between the four boys is outstanding. Moreover, unlike the prequel, this one is added with the glam quotient with actress Mallika Sherawat and Kangana Ranaut as important part in the film.
A big toast goes to the witty and brilliant dialogues (Farhad-Sajid). Soundtracks ( Anand Raaj Anand) in the film is well complimented, especially Mallik's 'Jalebi Bai act'. Aseem Bajaj's cinematography is top notch.
Arshad, Riteish, Jaaved and Aashish are stars of the comedy world. Riteish is simply outstanding. It won't be wrong to say that Double Dhamaal is his career-best work. Arshad is amazing with comic timing. Jaaved couldn't have been more stupid. Aashish is a complete revelation. In fact, the four actors make the film look flawless and unblemished.
Sanjay Dutt is the catalyst in the film, the perfect man for the job. Both Mallika and Kangana are excellent. Double Dhamaal will make people realize that Mallika can handle comic roles with effortlessness. Kangna's scenes with Riteish are sure to be noticed. Satish Kaushik is outstanding with his one-liners. Zakir Hussain is adequate.
All said and done, Double Dhamaal is an eruption of laughter. It is definitely not for people who are looking for wisdom and rationale. People who enjoy light-hearted entertainer with a good laugh are called for a treat. Have a Double Dhamaal this weekend with the jokers on-screen.
