Movie Review : Dhol (Review)


Dhol Story

Four good for nothing men (Sharman Joshi , Rajpal Yadav, Kunal Khemu and Tusshar Kapoor)  realize that the only way to get rich is to marry an “Amir Ghar Ki Ladki”. When the rich Om Puri along with his grand-daughter ( Tanushree Dutta) land at a neighbouring bungalow, the four men try their best to make Tanushree fall in love with them.  And also try to make the audience laugh.

Dhol Review

 Armed with a script that is as old as the Harappan Civilization and with actors who are competing for the Worst Actor Award, director Priya Darshan sets off to make the audience laugh. And as expected he fails miserably. Clichéd scenes, garish cinematography, tiring songs and perhaps the most banal screenplay are what you take back after watching Dhol.

You have Rajpal’s overacting ( some may find it funny) and  Tushaar’s no acting. Kunal Khemu along with a wardrobe and look malfunction also suffers from an acting malfunction. Tanushree Dutta  and Payal Rohatgi are busy trying to out do one another  for the “ Worst Actress Award” . Sharman Joshi is the only one who manages to rise slightly from the sinking ship.

Dhol Movie ReviewIf you get an impulse to leave the theatre after the first half, then don’t even bother to think twice before doing so. Because if the first half can give you a minor headache, then the second half has material good enough for a migraine. You have a boring flashback,  a rather extended typical Priya Darshan climax, a silly ending and a severe headache as the film terminates.



Priya Darshan’s Dhol disappoints on all fronts. With Hera Pheri Priyan set an example on how comedy films should be made and now he completes a full circle with Dhol, which shows how comedy films shouldn’t be made.

Final Verdict :  Dhol is nothing but a waste of time and money. Recommend this one to your enemies. This is the best chance you have at taking revenge.

Box Office Prediction: Dhol will have a bad start due to 20-20 World Cup. The bad word of mouth will only further dampen the box office results of Dhol.

Dhol Movie Rating : 2/10

    I’d disagree to what has been said about the movie in this review. Though I’d agree with the comments on acting prowess of Kunal, Tanushree and Payal. Honestly, nethought Priyadarshan had planned for three lead female roles and ended up having Tanushree, Payal and Kunal. Rajpal Yadav’s overacting, well thats what makes him wht he is, right? Cant really blame him. He was mediocre. Tushaar was just the “Golmaal” guy with dialogues, Sharmaan is improving. The director created an aura of suspense intially, which he could not hold for long. Zikomo (whatever his name is!) tried to look an ultrasoft spoken, gentle, cold blooded criminal who makes the hair prick at the very sight but failed terribly. He had done better job in Main Hoon na, though a pretty short screen apppearance. Arbaaz Khan, a complete disappointment (not that one has great expectations from him). Om Puri, Asrani were a complete waste of character, though they did justice to what lousy character shade they were given. They are actors of immense potential and deserved something decently better. The house owner character was good though she did get hysterical in couple of scenes. Plot was a total mess. Adding the murder and “dhol” elements to the movie makes one wonder if Priyadarshan was making cold coffee but suddenly decided to make cock tail out of it. Its not as bad as said here but definitely a disappointment for those who’ve had a glimpse of Priyadarshan’s calibre. After seeing Tanushree Dutta in Dhol, I’d pray to God to bless me with ’nuff amnesia to forget that she is a beauty queen. Wonder if Vidya Balan and Tanushree are competing in bloating their bodies!! She looked bad earlier, now she only looks worse ( lets not insult the term “acting” by using it for her). All in all, its an avergae movie, atleast the humour is sans sex. I’d give 3.5 on a scale of 5.

    Look I just watched dhol… I am sorry it was a literal waste of time… not money since I saw it for free… but def. a waste of time..the cast of actors were not up to par and the comedy was nothing original or extremely funny… I was bored for most of the movie… I really wanted to stop watching it badly… but I never stop watching a movie till the end… bad habit… Dhamaal was a lot better… that is a much funnier and entertaining movie…
