Plot

The story revolves around the lives of Gopal, Lucky, Madhav, and Laxman.

Laxman is an intelligent student who is prevented from doing well in school by his mischievous band of friends Gopal, Madhav, and mute Lucky. The three friends use Laxman's hostel room to conduct their mischievous activities. Laxman is peer-pressured into running a series of scams in order to earn himself and his friends some money and is punished by being thrown out of college. The naughty foursome then finds refuge in the bungalow of a blind couple by pretending to be their grandson.

A cat mouse game unfolds as Laxman’s body and Gopal’s voice makes for Sameer - the grandson from US. Each time the blinded Dadaji comes amidst them, hilarious situations arise. Enter Nirali, as the saucy girl-next-door, with a bath towel and the group now have time, place and ‘resources’ to fall in love. Their individual efforts at winning the lady’s heart, but fail. Apart from their amorous interests, there is a quest for hidden treasure in the old couple’s house. There is also a gangster named Babli, who is a comic take on Munnabhai and who wants to steal from the old couple's bungalow. All his attempts are unintentionally and unknowingly thwarted by the foursome. At last it is revealed that Sameer along with his parents, was killed in a car accident in the US a long time ago. The grandfather performed their final rites but didn't tell the grandmother. He has no objection to the four boys staying with them but the grandmother secretly hears all this. At the same time, Babli arrives at the scene with his gang and it is revealed that Babli had sneaked some diamonds into the urn containing the last rites of the dead people some years ago. This urn was at the present in the treasure chest. After everything is over, Lucky wins the heart of Nirali.

Reception

Golmaal was released on 14 July 2006 and earned a net gross of 52,05,00,000.[1] Rediff.com's Sukanya Verma said the film was "one wacky, goofy, paisa vasool ride" and that "[t]he humour isn't exactly family audience material, and is more likely to be lapped up by college-going folk", rating the movie 3/5.[2] Subhash K Jha of Sify wrote that the film's "neatly structured ambit of asinine anarchy tickles the funny-bone, it finally says nothing about the quality of modern life that we haven't already heard in all those blasts from the past that have come in recent weeks trying to create a ripple across our sense of humour."[3] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama said that the film was "[a] thoroughly enjoyable fare, the film has all it takes to hit the bull's eye" rating it a 3.5/5.[4]
