All the Best – movie review

Fun Begins


All the Best, movie review

All the Best has some breathtaking car racing stunts, the stunning bright and colourful beaches and locales of Goa and comedy all the time. There is never a dull moment in Rohit Shetty’s All the Best.

Veer (Fardeen Khan) is a singer who is in greed of extracting extra pocket money from his step brother Dharam (Sanjay Dutt) who is a business honcho from London.

Veer tries to lie about his single status and puts it forth as ‘Happily Married’ with Vidya (Mughda Godse) who he is in love with. His friend Prem (Ajay Devgn) who is a concept car expert lends a helping hand in this falsely embossed projection.

Prem is happily married to Jhanvi (Bipasha Basu) who takes care of his ancestor’s out-dated ‘Chopra Gymnasion’. Veer and Prem land up in debts as they opted for a short-cut to earn big money.

Now Veer and Prem get into a bigger soup when Dharam pays a sudden visit to their place. Time does not give a chance and circumstances create such situations that Jhanvi is mistaken as Vidya and Vidya as Jhanvi…

Soon the two start juggling between prolonging the debt payment to a local don Tobu (Johnny Lever) and convincing plus pacifying Dharam about the false status.

Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan excel in comic situations. Fardeen Khan and Bipasha Basu too perform well, Mughda Godse has no scope in the story.

The outcome is a rib-tickling comic situation where Veer and Prem handle the unexpected incoming characters arriving at their place and coping with acquaintances while they boast and cover up with lies in this comedy of errors.

Performances in All the Best: Asrani and Johnny Lever manage to deliver good comedy: And we have Sanjay Mishra, Atul Parchure & Vijay Patkar whose appearance itself evokes laughter.

An interesting comedy is towards the end, where the African natives come up with their dusky princess in interaction with Sanjubaba and the gang in Swahili which is a native African language.

All the Best is a decent and fun filled hilarious film for the entire family. It is nice to see that there are no double meaning jokes or any cheap comedy. It is laughter almost from the beginning and then keeps you laughing till the end.
