Remaking a classic can be tricky.

But if you do, you must have already begun scouting for your copy of Gol Maal somewhere.

Mouche ado about nothing

The acting is generally so unabashedly hammy that you might be forgiven for wondering whether you have wandered into a pigsty. Be warned. Bol Bachchan is a comedy so absurd that it could reduce you to tears of despair. Conversely, if you have the stomach

The background music and the looks of the protagonist makes you remember a better made Singham, and yet for most part of the film the character looks like a spoof on Singham. It has flying cars and prop assisted Darasinghified (god bless his soul) fight s

After making a series of 'Golmaal', director Rohit Shetty is itself very much inspired by the name that he decided to remake the yesteryear's cult movie 'Golmaal' (1979) which was directed by legendary Hrishikesh Mukherjee. The expectations were really hi

Bollywood Life
When it comes to Rohit Shetty's comedy films, one expects a wholesome 'dhamaal' affair that keeps you smiling all through, if not making you laugh on a constant note. Whether it is his 'Golmaal' series or even 'All The Best', Rohit and his team has always believed in bringing enough entertaining moments that ensure that you are talking about it way after the end credits have rolled.
India Glitz
First things first. Bol Bachchan is a remake of Golmaal, the old sweet Amol Palekar - Utpal Dutt comedy. But if you go to see the film expecting it to be full of gentle hilarity and respectable slapstick of the earlier version, you will be aghast.
Janhavi Samant, Mid-Day
Shoaib Mansoor voices a strong and progressive viewpoint with Bol but the film will need a strong word – of – mouth to succeed at the box - office.
The silly gags and jokes do make you laugh. Don’t expect a masterpiece like the original Gol Maal and you would be happy.
Devesh Sharma, FilmFare
We won't be surprised if these one-liners too become a rage like the dialogues from Singham," said a source from the sets.

All in all it seems Rohit Shetty actually pays a tribute to the 70′s era by bringing back the colorful and light hearted comedies genre.Interesting songs, hilarious comedy and some funny one liners, Bol Bachchan has it all. This one is a complete family e

Bol Bachchan is yet another low IQ comedy from the Rohit Shetty-Ajay Devgn team.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
Bol Bachchan is a supremely enjoyable laugh-riot with Ajay Devgan, Krushna Abhishek, Archna Pooran Singh and Asrani being the four major highlights. It has tremendous repeat value too. Therefore it will prove to be a straight hit at the box-office, no que
The relationship between Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s original Golmaal and Rohit Shetty’s Bol Bachchan can be summed up in one of the ridiculous couplets that make up Bol Bachchan’s depressingly bad title song:

Far from being LOL stuff, Bol Bachchan ends up being Bore Bachchan, with a lame climax.

Create a theme for humour, build a story around it, hire some cars, do a bunch of action sequences with those cars crashing into each other and ALWAYS have Ajay Devgan playing the lead role.

On the whole, Bol Bachchan is one movie which is thoroughly entertaining. Funny, Wittier and crazy at times, this movie is totally a decent family outing where everyone can have a good time. Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty once again have a sure shot winner

Just after a cameo jig in the title song, Big B offers a disclaimer: he isn’t a part of this film, even though his name is.

Abbas wants a job Prithvi wants an honest man. But Abbas spins a tale of twin brothers and multiple mothers – what happens when Prithvi discovers his vivid truth and lies?
Srijana Mitra Das, Times of India
I have never been a huge fan of Rohit Shetty’s brand of cinema, but enjoyed watching two of his films. The first in the Golmaal series and his last release Singham, which had tremendous entertainment and repeat value.
Bol Bachchan is scheduled to release in theaters tomorrow. The lucky people over in Gujarat get to see the film before the world – at the 12AM and 3AM screenings all over the state.
