Golmaal Returns is a 2008 Bollywood film directed by Rohit Shetty. The film is a sequel to the 2006 film, Golmaal with Ajay Devgan, Tusshar Kapoor and Arshad Warsi reprising their roles and Shreyas Talpade reprising the role originally played by Sharman Joshi. Kareena Kapoor, Anjana Sukhani, Amrita Arora and Celina Jaitley are new additions to the cast. Produced by Dhillin Mehta under Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision LTD, the film is expected to release on October 29, 2008.[1].

Ajay Devgan will be seen paired opposite Kareena Kapoor after their previous film, Omkara released in 2006.[2] Amongst the rest of the multi-starrer cast, actress Amrita Arora will be seen opposite Arshad Warsi[2] whilst Celina Jaitley and Anjana Sukhani opposite Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor respectively.[3]

Kareena Kapoor will be playing a housewife addicted to saas-bahu serials, who begins suspecting her husband, played by Devgan, of adultery; her role is reported to have been inspired from Ekta Kapoor.[4] On the other hand, Tusshar Kapoor, who continues his mute act from the prequel, will be seen playing a struggling mute barber[5] and Kapoor's brother.[4] Jaitley will be playing a half-Indian, half-Afghani housewife[6] while Arora will be playing Devgan's sister.[7]

Originally expected to commence shooting for the film in Dubai on a forty day schedule,[8] the cast shot for the film in Goa on a twenty day schedule.[9][10] Shooting later continued in places like the Filmistan Studios in Mumbai,[11] South Africa and Bangkok.[12]

Gopal (Ajay Devgan), who lives with his wife Ekta (Kareena Kapoor), sister Esha (Amrita Arora) and a dumb brother-in-law Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor), gets stuck in a yacht one night after he saves an attractive young woman Meera (Celina Jaitley) from the dreaded goons, while on his way back home from office. Due to the circumstances, both of them stay back on the yacht.

When he arrives home the next day, his over suspicious wife Ekta, a hard core saas-bahu serial’s fan, suspects him of flirting around with his girl staffs. Gopal thinks that it’s difficult to convince her by telling her about the incident that actually took place the prior night and hence, he invents a story about spending the night with a fictitious friend named Anthony Gonsalves. Ekta does not believe his story as she knows that he never had a friend by that name, and hence, she decides to write to Anthony to come and visit her.

Gopal then convinces one of his juniors, Laxman (Shreyas Talpade), to pretend like Anthony, and thus convince Ekta that he was indeed telling the truth. Laxman agrees to do so, and everything goes according to plan until the address on which Ekta had written a letter to Anthony turns out to be real. Meanwhile, Gopal finds out that a dead body was found at the same location where he saved Meera from the goons. The Investigating Officer Madhav (Arshad Warsi), who also happens to be Esha’s boyfriend, does not get along well with Gopal. He finds out that Gopal was missing from his home that very night and that the dead person was an employee from his company.

Ajay (Ajay Devgan) is on a cruise with four of his friends. Nikhil (Sumeet Raghavan) and Reena (Divya Dutta) are an unhappily married couple whilst Vicky (Karan Khanna) and Natasha (Isha Sharvani) are a happily unmarried couple. Over there, he meets Pia (Kajol) and falls in love with her. After a disastrous first meeting, Ajay tries everything to woo her but Pia doesn't fall for it. Eventually, by sheer perseverance, he dances his way into her heart and the two get married. Everything is expected to be happy until Pia is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The domestic situation of the happy couple becomes difficult following a major incident caused due to Pia's disease where the couple's son is almost killed. Ajay reluctantly decides to place Pia in special care. Though Pia unaware of her surroundings, doesn't realize it in the beginning, there happen to be times when she seems to be normal and remembers everything. She longs for Ajay and becomes depressed when he doesn't respond. However, Ajay decides to take Pia back home in spite of her illness. But unfortunately, Pia seems to fail to recognize Ajay. Whether Pia has really forgotten Ajay or she is pretending to do so forms the climax of the movie. The plot of this movie is inspired by the 2004 Hollywood movie The Notebook.

[edit] Reception
The film opened to a poor response of 40-45% at several places but due to good reports, the collections got better as the day progressed in the multiplexes of big cities. The late shows were reported to have collections of over 60%.[4][5]

Critics' reviews towards the movie were mostly positive, with Taran Adarsh giving the film 4 out of 5 stars and describing it as "a well-made, absorbing love story that's high on the emotional quotient".[6] The performances by the lead pair were also praised. Taran Adarsh further commented, "U, Me aur Hum is like a medal that glimmers on Ajay Devgan's body of work. He's exceptional! Kajol, well, what can you say of an actress who has proved herself time and again? That she's undoubtedly the best has been proved yet again."[6] Raja Sen noted, "Kajol raises the bar strikingly high... And Devgan...[delivers] an intense acting job."[7]

Devgan's direction also won favorable reviews. Raja Sen further noted, "Ajay Devgan's first is an impressive directorial debut that starts abruptly but gathers force as it goes along, ending up finding its own voice [as] a powerful romantic drama."[7] Despite winning good reviews for its performances and direction, the film was also criticized for its screenplay and length. Rajeev Masand from CNN-IBN wrote, "Devgan's directorial debut...is let down by a sloppy, slapdash screenplay" whilst Joginder Tuteja from indiaglitz.com wrote, "On the whole, U, Me aur Hum gets a little dragging primarily in the first half and is a little loose on its screenplay."[8][9]

Pre-production of the film began in late 2006 with Akshay Kumar being signed first, and Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor next.[1] In early 2007, Anil Kapoor was signed on to play a negative role in the film.[2] This film marks the return of Kumar and Kareena Kapoor to the Yash Raj banner after the former's Yeh Dillagi (1994) and Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), and the latter's Mujhse Dosti Karoge! (2002). Anil Kapoor also makes a comeback to the Yash Raj banner after 16 years. His last film with the banner was Lamhe (1992).

Apart from the major star cast, Khan's son, Ibrahim, will be seen making his debut with the film, and is reported to play his son.[3][4] All the actors will be seen sporting new looks designed by designer Aki Narula, with Kareena Kapoor in a very glamorous role and reportedly donning a bikini.[5][6]

In June 2007, the cast began filming in Kerala, and later continued shooting in Laddakh and Rajasthan.[7][8][9] Pictures of Khan and Kareena Kapoor were taken in September 2007 while shooting for the film in the Fort area of Mumbai.[10] Some portions of the film were later shot in the city of Haridwar on the banks of the river Ganges and Greece.[11][12]

The first promo was shown on November 30, 2007 with the release of Anil Mehta's Aaja Nachle.[13] In a recent poll conducted by IndiaFM, Tashan ranked first on the list of "Most Awaited Movies of 2008".[14] To promote the film, Yash Raj Films built communities on social networking sites like Facebook, Orkut and YouTube.[15]

[edit] Synopsis
The film tells the story about call center executive Jimmy Cliff (Saif Ali Khan), gangster Bachchan Pande (Akshay Kumar) and Pooja (Kareena Kapoor), a girl who can't be trusted. The three of them are on a dangerous journey across India, which will alter the course of their lives in more ways than one. In addition to that, there is the evil eye of Bhaiyyaji (Anil Kapoor), a maverick gangster who enjoys killing people as much as he enjoys speaking English.[16]
