REVIEW: Total Dhamaal should be renamed to "Silly WhatsApp Jokes" or "Total Disaster"


Total Dhamaal, the third installment of the Dhamaal Franchise is as silly as your next door neighbor or the jokes of a WhatsApp group you are forced to join.



We all know how the story is going to roll, a chase for money between four pairs ( you can clearly guess the pairs, it is all there in the trailer). The story gets more silly and stupid as the movie progresses. The jokes are unbearable after some point, in fact there are no hilarious jokes in the movie, I cant think of any. The bag of money somehow ends up in a zoo and after a long boring journey and by showing close-up shots of childish expressions, by each and every character, we come down to four pairs of people fighting in front of animals for money. And I actually think the animals did a better job.



There was no acting in the movie, there was just over-acting, so I am gonna judge actors on the basis of over-acting. Madhuri being the best in over-acting to Riteish being the worst in this scale of over-acting. Each and every character lies in the middle of the scale. There's absolutely no script, the writers decided to write a trip filled with silly acts of hooligans, and they achieved it brilliantly. Indra Kumar's execution won't matter if the script is unbearable, so will be its execution. Cinematography was a little better than the rest, as the zoo scenes were shot little better than the rest of the movie. Music is same as the movie, i.e.. you can guess it now. This is what happens when you try to make a sex comedy movie and still want it to be seen by the people of all ages. Henceforth, you have to change the original motive of the movie and hide the jokes related to sex under the mask of 'money'.


Overall, I highly recommend you not to watch this movie.


Acting - 0.5 / 5

Script - 0.5 / 5

Direction - 0.5 / 5

Cinematography - 1 / 5

Music - 0.5 / 5

Final Verdict - 0.5 / 5


Please skip this one.
