What’s It About
Veer (Fardeen Khan), a singer by profession, lies about his single status to elder brother Sanjay Dutt, an NRI business-tycoon, to extract more pocket money. His friend Prem (Ajay Devgn), a concept car expert, lends more than a helping hand in this falsely embossed projection. Veer is in love with Vidya (Mugdha Godse) while Prem is happily married to Jhanvi (Bipasha Basu). Veer and Prem land up in debts as they opt for a short-cut to earn easy money. When the big brother makes an unannounced visit to kid brother’s house, he mistakenly believes Bipasha Basu to be his new found bhabhi. There on unfolds a comedy based on hilarious situations resulting from mistaken identities and goof-ups.
This movie has been made with one aim, to entertain! And logic and intelligence be damned.
Ajay Devgn gets his comic timing down pat! He is, hands down, the star of the show! He proves yet again how adept an actor he is; donning roles of the serious, poker faced macho man and the witty goofball with equal panache! Sanjay Dutt dons the role of the elder brother/ruffian with much ease. This is what he does best. Bipasha performs her role well without any of
the overacting that is typical of the comedy genre.
The onscreen chemistry between Ajay and Bipasha is notable. Sanjay Mishra and Johnny lever both bring to the movie their distinct flavour of slapstick! Fardeen and Mugdha mostly stand by as bystanders, pale in comparison to the rest of the cast.

All The Best offers plenty of funny situations, especially in the latter half when the plot unfolds. The characters all come together in a heads on collision that will have you laughing! The machoisms and car flips are all done with necessary exaggeration but fit well in the big picture. The overtly colourful settings are a tad painful to the eye.
The director seems to have had the entire cast in good spirits. It’s plain to see that the characters are having much fun on screen, especially Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn. All The Best may seem repetitive of earlier slapstick releases but it sure makes do for some wholesome family entertainment this Diwali.
With not a very encouraging opening response, All The Best will have a tough task catching up though being the only comedy during festive period may help some.
