Golmaal Returns (2008) & Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar (1993)

“Golmaal Returns”, directed by Rohit Shetty, takes its main plot from an old under-rated bollywood comedy “Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar”, released in 1973 and starring Kiran Kumar, Radha Saluja, I. S. Johar & Asrani. In fact Asrani also got a Filmfare Award for his superb performance as “Champak Bhumiya” in the film.

The basic plot of the story revolves around a suspicious wife and her innocent husband. To explain, why he was out of the house for a whole night, Ajay Devgan (as the Husband in Golmaal Returns) makes up a false story whereas actually he was stuck, saving Celina Jaitely from some bad elements and had to spend a night in a friend’s place with her. However in the original movie, the real happening was more innovative, where the hero gets stuck on a giant wheel (in an amusement park) with a young girl, due to power failure and they both have to spend a whole night hanging there.
Instead of an original “Champak Bhumiya” (in Aaj Ki Taaza Khabar), this time we have, ”Anthony Gonsalves” as the imaginary character, who turns out to be existing alive.
If possible get hold of the 1973 comedy and watch it to feel the diference.
