"All the Best" is a Hindi comedy featuring several big stars of Indian cinema: Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgan, Bipasha Basu, and Fardeen Khan. Director Rohit Shetty also made the wildly popular "Golmaal" trilogy, and those who are familiar with the Golmaal films will see some similarities here. "All the Best", like "Golmaal", was filmed in Goa and has the same breezy, fun-in-the-sun atmosphere. In addition, like the Golmaal series, it features a couple of slackers as its heroes - guys who are good at heart but always find themselves short on cash and running into trouble with local underworld-types.
Since the official product description is a little tricky to comprehend, I'll summarize the plot here: Veer (Fardeen Khan) lives in a beautiful house in Goa thanks to his older brother Dharam (Sanjay Dutt), a wealthy businessman who lives outside India and doesn't realize what his younger brother is really up to. Veer is a struggling musician without a stable source of income; he lies to his older brother about being married so that Dharam will send a monthly allowance. Dharam often shares this allowance with his best friend Prem (Ajay Devgan), who runs a decrepit, near-bankrupt gym with his wife Jhanvi (Bipasha Basu). Through a combination of gambling and illegal car racing, Veer and Prem go into debt to a local loan shark. Then one day, older brother Dharam shows up unexpectedly in Goa...and you can guess how the rest of the story goes. Since Veer's girlfriend Vidhya is nowhere to be found, Jhanvi must pose as Veer's wife, and when Vidhya herself shows up, she must then pose as Jhanvi. The story elements are typical of a Rohit Shetty comedy: mistaken identities, slapstick comedy, and an ever-increasing cast of characters who always show up just in time to complicate everything. The plot is completely predictable and the action/car-chase sequences hugely over the top and unbelievable, so let's assume that you already know and expect this from a Rohit Shetty film.
Here are the good points of the film. First, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan are hilarious. Ajay has great talent as a comedian and I found myself rewinding just so that I could watch his expressions and delivery again. The comedic interplay between Sanjay and Ajay is great to watch. Fardeen Khan performs well, though he's overshadowed by Ajay. Bipasha Basu and Mugdha Godse are fine in their roles, but the script doesn't give them much comedic scope - for the most part, they play it fairly straight and the guys get all the good lines (if you want to see a woman in a great comedic part, see Kareena Kapoor in "Golmaal 3").
The comedy resulting from the mistaken-identity plot is so obvious that you'll see it coming from a mile away, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable anyway. Unfortunately, the music was disappointing in this film as there weren't any truly memorable songs. (This is in contrast to "Golmaal 3", which had a simply fantastic line-up of songs.)
If you're not already familiar with "bollywood" movies, this probably won't be quite as appealing to you since much of the enjoyment rests on seeing well-loved actors like Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan do broad comedy.
