Check out our review of Total Dhamaal:
Speaking about the performances in the movie, LatestLY movie critic Sreeju Sudhakaran gave the film stars and had to say this about it: "Everyone in the main cast has done a great job in eliciting laughter from the viewers. Ajay Devgn brinks his poker face to good use here. Anil Kapoor's youthful enthusiasm is marvellous, even when his Gujju accent wavers. Madhuri Dixit, slightly exaggerated in her mannerisms even for this film, acquits herself still with a decent act. Riteish Deshmukh is a pro at accents and funny expressions, and he puts them to good use here. Arshad Warsi and Jaaved Jaaferi's hilarious camaraderie will make you wish the movie could have more of them to dazzle. Come on, Indra Kumar, Adi-Manav deserve a spin-off! Sanjay Mishra steals every scene he is in with his Bro-ing! Boman Irani and the often-underused Vijay Patkar also shine in their parts. Pitobash gets little scope in his character to perform. Johnny Lever is hilarious."
Speaking of the box office collections, although Total Dhamaal has performed well as far as the first day collections are concerned, it is still far behind Gully Boy. The Ranveer Singh - Alia Bhatt starrer had collected Rs 19.40 on the first day of its release.
