Ratings:3/5 Review By:Srijana Das Site:TOI

Technical shabbiness is the film’s weakest link. There are plot glitches and dated touches. All Is Well lacks the cutting-edge sharpness or glittering depth of Umesh Shukla’s OMG. With its old-world feel, it’s not a cool cocktail but a teashop bun, dunked in sentimental tea. It could’ve been way better – but there’s some sweetness too in this simple treat.

On the whole, all is clearly not well with All Is Well. With little to offer, it will fail to make its mark at the box-office. If it still manages to control the losses of the persons associated with it, it will be due to the handsome price it has fetched for the satellite rights (pre-sold).

At one point in All Is Well, Bachchan picks up Rishi Kapoor and carries him on his shoulders. This is the big ‘moment’ of the film, clearly, the Shravan Kumar moment which shows the prodigal son lifting the father. It is, however, a slow-motion mess, which is made further farcical by Rishi Kapoor, while hanging from Bachchan’s left shoulder, trying to pat the younger actor’s back a few times.It’s a tell-tale gesture; This isn’t encouragement, it’s a fine actor giving up on a bad film. Rishi Kapoor’s tapping out.

All Is Well is obviously built on the myth of Shravan Kumar, celebrated for his devotion to his parents, ends with two weddings, one planned out to the last detail, the other accidental but facilely opportune.For audiences that are disposed towards accepting the kind of climactic twists that All Is Well fabricates – the most ridiculous of which is saved for the very last – the film might pass muster as a one-time watch. For everyone else, it would be too much to digest even at a generous stretch.Be that as it may, All Is Well is, well, anything but a completely squandered effort.

It’s sad to see Umesh Shukla coming out with this, after the delightful ‘Oh My God’ and as for the writers, (Sumit Arora and Niren Bhatt), perhaps if they had read up a bit more on Alzheimers, they would have written about this dreaded condition a bit more sensitively.

Whoever named this film must have a great sense of black humour, because the only thing ‘well’ about the film is its title. As for the rest, it goes beyond all notions of wellness. In other words, terrible. Plot? Non-existent. The jokes? Screamingly unfunny. Rishi Kapoor doing ‘su-su’, singing ‘aiyi-aiyi-aiyi’? Groan.

Absolutely not! Nothing is well in All Is Well. It is a complete waste of great actors like Rishi Kapoor and Supriya Pathak. Save your money and your soul; give this one a miss!

Umesh Shukla, who directed 2012’s Oh My God! starring Akshay Kumar, cannot in any manner repeat the box-office returns of this film. Shukla tries to give a contemporary turn to the character Shravan, the perfect son from the epic Ramayana. He ends up creating a road trip that keeps going round and round till the viewer’s head is seriously spinning, when suddenly the end is near.The only good thing about the film is it ends in two hours (phew!). All is not well with All Is Well. Watch it at your own risk. Better still, wait for one of the bigger channels to announce the world TV premiere.

This Bhushan Kumar and Shyam Bajaj produced comedy of errors was a mistake to back from the early stages of its script. To finance this film and bring it to big screen is a fool’s exercise that will probably not end well for anyone associated with such a project. Take our advice and the money spent on this weekend’s movie outing is perhaps best spent on charity instead. Believe us, you will be doing yourself a favour.

    All is rubbish. A total waste! [1/5]

    Good news for all the complainants who don’t waste a chance to criticize Bollywood for being irrational, illogical and unreasonable! Here comes a film that does bother to give you enough reasons to explain what’s coming next and why it is there in the film! Even then the film in question ends up being a strong contender of ‘the silliest film of the year’ trophy, I don’t really wonder why. Picture this; an NRI [Abhishek Bachchan] stops at a roadside dhaba on Chandigarh-Solan highway to feed his family a good meal after a much hurried and hassled drive. The man at the counter is charging him some 5 thousand rupees for 4 people’s meal which is not even served or consumed yet. The poor guy doesn’t carry cash. To save him from the embarrassment, the local dancer [She was the reason for the hiked price] offers him a dance with her in exchange. What comes next is the item number by Sonakshi Sinha heavily supported by the Jr Bachchan. C’mon, even a Rakhi Sawant won’t do it for the said amount!

    The problem with Umesh Shukla’s ALL IS WELL is its lazy ambition to become another Priyadarshan movie where cartoonish characters will do anything [banging head on the wall, rolling over one and other, slapping each other] to make you laugh and just laugh in every scene; the plot could anytime allow actors to participate in a nonsensical chase and then, end it all in a wedding-mandup where glycerin [the most-overrated chemical to make you look serious actor] will have a separate counter at the food-court. Though the story is not at all bad for a family entertainer, the emotions get silenced by the screeching dialogues and awful performances.

    Bhajanlal Bhalla [Rishi Kapoor] runs a bakery that has hardly any incoming income to run the family. In fact, it is more of a bone of contention between him and his wife [Supriya Pathak Kapoor]. The son Inder [Abhishek Bachchan] fed up of the regular domestic verbal clash has moved abroad to make it big in his singing career. He’s back after some 10 years and the catch is the money he could get to finance his first album by selling the bakery. Sounds simple? Wait, we’ll make it as twisted as any Priyadarshan movie. Add a local slapstick gangster [Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub] & cops will come by design, a secret box of good fortune to run after and a powerful lady with her army [Seema Pahwa with complementary Bugs Bunny teeth] will definitely be coming into scene and lastly, our heroine who’s all set to give her Shaadi a miss ‘cause she loves someone else. Enough to complicate!

    For an Alzheimer patient, a doctor suggests, “Inko jitna khush rakh sakte ho, rakho!’ Isn’t it a ‘prescription for all’ statement? The female protagonist [Asin] believes in the signs from the universe so much that you would pick up an orange over an apple from the fruit basket and she might tell you she had saved it for her would-be-husband and now, you have to marry her. ALL IS WELL is full of such irritating, intimidating [to make you leave the theatre] and disgusting elements but what hurts you the most is watching talent like Supriya Pathak Kapoor being wasted utterly. Smriti Irani was cast in the same role earlier. I am not sure at what circumstances Supriyaji accepted the role but it is never to match her caliber. All the stars in the rating given to the film in this review must go to her as the compensatory allowance. Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub is the only one who looks constantly trying to make it work. Rests all are either average or forgettable.

    Overall, Umesh Shukla of OMG-OH! MY GOD fame fails miserably to impress. He was probably too confident to see the film’s flaws. With no offence or any disrespect to Alzheimer patients, I think sometimes you need a serious illness to forget something bad happened to you in life. ALL IS WELL takes you in that unfortunate mental zone. Save yourself, if you can! [1/5]
