The trailer of highly anticipated movie ‘Total Dhamaal’ is out. Directed by Indra Kumar, the film is the third instalment of the successful Dhamaal franchise.

The multi-starrer brings backs the original cast members Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh and Javed Jaffrey. Joining them in the third movie are Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Mishra, Johnny Lever and Boman Irani. The movie also stars Mahesh Manjrekar and Esha Gupta. The movie also features a special appearance by Sonakshi Sinha.

‘Total Dhamaal’ is about a treasure hunt of sorts which divides the star cast of the film into smaller groups, all of whom want the treasure for themselves. They all opt for separate paths with their own challenges featuring lots of CGI animals. Johnny Lever makes an aeroplane out of an auto, Arshad gets trapped in quicksand, a tiger attacks Madhuri and Anil and Ajay is irritated by a GPS system.

From the three-minute trailer, it looks like ‘Total Dhamaal’ is going to be a wildlife adventure and a laugh riot. The performances in the movie are loud but do invoke laughter. Unfortunately, the CGI and visual effects look a bit shoddy. But with such a stellar cast and the trailer sticking to the successful formula of previous instalments, the audience can look forward to a movie filled with good performances and lots of humour.

Talking about the film, Javed said, "It's a ‘Total Dhamaal' in its true sense. There is Ajay Devgn, Boman Irani, Johny Lever and Sanjay Mishra in the film and apart from them, there is Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh and me in it, who have earlier worked together in two parts of Dhamaal franchise."

‘Total Dhamaal’ also marks the Bollywood debut of Crystal, the monkey who has featured in Hollywood films such as Hangover 2, Night at the Museum and George of the Jungle. 

The film releases on 22 February.
