Dear Mr Ajay Devgan. I don't know whether you have officially knocked off the 'A' from your surname or it is just a passing fad for a shift in spelling. For fear of you getting back to your original spelling, I'd rather address you with the 'A'. Remember Kareina Kapoor and Viveik Oberoi? They both went back to their original spellings.
Anyways, this note before the review is to congratulate you on a laugh riot. You have really lit up the lives of millions of cinemagoers this Diwali. A big hug and also a big Thank You on behalf of the viewers who will know their money has been well spent and won't come out feeling Blue!
People, line up for your tickets, ALL THE BEST directed by Rohit Shetty is a MUST WATCH. Sanjay Dutt is having the time of his life in a role he revels from the time he enters Goa Airport. Never have I seen him having so much fun and being so involved in his character. Ajay Devgan is super in his support. The show belongs to these two. Atul Parchure, Johnny Lever and Sanjay Mishra are the others who will have you laughing your guts out.
ALL THE BEST is a situational comedy. Veer (Fardeen Khan) needs extra pocket money from his stepbrother, Dharam (Sanjay Dutt), who lives in London. He needs the money to support his rock band. Prem Chopra (Ajay Devgan), his best friend who is married to Jhanvi (Bipasha Basu), hits on an idea. He tells Veer to inform Dharam that he is married. Vidya (Mugdha Godse) is Veer's girlfriend. Everything moves on smoothly for this gang until they take a loan from Tobu (Johnny Lever) to enter a car race. They lose the race, and have to repay the Rs 5 lakh loan along with the Rs 5 lakh, which Tobu wagered on them winning the race. They decide to rent out Veer's bungalow. Just then, they get a call from Dharam who is in Goa for a couple of hours. He decides to drop in home.
Vidya has gone off in a huff and cannot be contacted because she has left her cell phone at Veer's home. Veer is at his wits end, while Prem tries to solve the situation by getting Mary (Ashwini Kalsekar), their housemaid, to enact the wife's role. In walks Jhanvi and the roles have been reversed. From here on, everyone moves in and out of the bungalow leaving Dharam garam.
It's a laugh riot all the way. The background score keeps pace with the comedy, the music is peppy while the dialogues have weight. There's also action aplenty.
Its thumbs, toes and bottoms up for Devgan and director Rohit Shetty.
