DOUBLE DHAMAAL

DIRECTOR
Indra Kumar 

STARRING
Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Mallika Sherawat, Kangana Ranaut

The Plot
A sequel to a 2007 film, Double Dhamaal stars four people who play the same character in every movie — worthless losers who dream of getting rich. Sanjay Dutt is the twisted cop from the prequel who got rich by becoming a successful con. He double crosses the four losers and a dangerous don (Satish Kaushik). And then for some strange reason, they are found absconding in Macau. So you want to know if this movie is about the revenge plot and the hilarity that ensues?

7 Because dear comedy writer, a joke is never as funny the hundredth time around. Minus three because the gags need to fit the plot.

+3 Okay, an oil reserve in the middle of Mumbai for sale was funny. Minus three for having someone actually buy it.

-4 For making a sequel to a movie that nobody actually remembers. Minus four because how many family films can you make around people who are good for nothing?

-6 Because directors seem to have given up on Warsi, Deshmukh, Aashish Chaudhary and Javed Jaffrey

+5 Because it is always good to have Mallika back. Minus five because well, I don’t really care if she’s back.

+4 Because satish kaushik just introduced Pappu Pager’s twin brother. Minus six because it’s not as funny without Anil Kapoor and Govinda. (See Deewana Mastana.)

-10Because Indra Kumar (who debuted with dilis now consistently disappointing.

-5 Because when did songs like these ever work? Except become annoying earworms at your regular drinking haunts

+10 Because I Want Kangana Ranaut to be my secretary. Definitely the best person to answer the phone.

-7 Because wait… are they trying to channel the Ocean’s trilogy?

+3 Because This Is The Perfect Film to be watched on acid. Colours. Many bright, shiny colours. With horrifying sound eftects.

+4 To The Item Girls because they are everywhere. Minus five for the bad, phenomenally unreal props and dhinchak costumes because they are everywhere too.
