New Delhi: The first trailer of director Rohit Shetty's much awaited film 'Bol Bachchan' is out. The star cast of the film includes Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Prachi Desai and Asin. The trailer is quite disappointing for Abhishek Bachchan's fans. After debacles like 'Game' and 'Players', everyone expected Abhishek Bachchan to be back with a bang.
It is surprising why Abhishek Bachchan agreed to play the second lead suddenly. Even his look in the film seems very similar to his 'Bunty aur Bubli' avatar. The actor who has proved himself with films like 'Guru', 'Yuva', 'Bluffmaster', 'Dhoom', 'Dostana', and 'Paa' is in desperate need of a blockbuster, and roles like this might not help him.
In 2010, his highly publicised films 'Raavan' and 'Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey' failed badly at the box office. 'Game' and 'Players' also failed to grab eyeballs. Though his performance in 'Dum Maro Dum' was appreciated, but it turned out to be an average grosser and far away from Rs 100 cr benchmark.
'Bol Bachchan' is said to be inspired by 1979 comedy film 'Gol Maal', but it hardly looks like the original. Apart from Abhishek Bachchan's moustache act, nothing seems similar between both the films. Amol Palekar could have never imagined car chases, bomb blasts and fight sequences in 'Gol Maal'.
Rohit Shetty's films are usually a cocktail of action and comedy. 'Bol Bachchan' seems to be the next one in the series. However, there is one positive thing about 'Bol Bachchan'. Rohit Shetty's track record is impressive at the box office. So far, he has delivered only one definite flop in the form of 'Sunday'. His first film 'Zameen' was also not a hit at the ticket window, but trade analysts have called it a break even venture.
It's not hard to understand that Ajay Devgn would be at the helm of affairs in 'Bol Bachchan', simply due to his long and commercially successful association with Rohit Shetty, but this also fetches Abhishek a chance to come up with a money spinner.
