The loud comedy is full of trains ramming cars, roaring wild cats, helicopters crash landing, falling bridges and leaves a little to the imagination. The multi-starrer created a lot of buzz at the time of the trailer release, though the trailer of ‘Total Dhamaal’ received a mixed reaction from the viewers.
To be honest, the film’s plot is weaker than the falling bridge we have seen in the promo. The film opens on a grand note with a title song introducing each one of them. There are many unnecessary plot twists in the film. Anil and Madhuri’s pairing is the most entertaining part of the film which brings us many LOL moments.
