Goofs

In the beginning of the film, Marru was imagining his uncle as his servant, where Marru arrives in a Mercedes car and his uncle wipes the widow of the car. At the end of the film, when Tanushree Dutta was leaving, they used the exactly same Mercedes car. In those two scenes the plots were totally different, but the car was the same. See more »

Another Lackluster Comedy
28 June 2014 | by ashishgautam87See all my reviews

Priysdarshan started his Bollywood career with a bang directing movies like Hera-Pheri and Hungama but recently his graph is going down as his movies now lack a good story(sometimes there is no solid plot in the movie as is the case with Dhol where things seem to happen out of nowhere) and the comedy standards which he promised with his earlier flicks.

Speaking of Dhol ,it has no plot .The story is of four friends(which is very common in recent movies where the focus is on a group of friends EX Golmaal,Dhamaal,Heyy Baby etc) who want to impress a girl (who is the only heir to her rich grandfather and grandmother).They try several things but everything they try backfires.The movie follows what they do and how things backfire. The plot might seem to be interesting but the movie has many flaws .Many scenes and part of plot seem to be missing from the movie ,but acting overall is good especially Rajpal Yadav.His expressions will certainly make you laugh.Priyadarshan seems to be directing many movies at a time and hence is not able to produce the same product as his earlier ones.

FINAL VERDICT-Don't go to watch this movie just because a newspaper has given this a high rating.This might not be as funny to you as many have described.If you are a movie buff save your money for big budget movies to be released during the last 4 months of this y
