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.
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.
If 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
