Dhamaal (2007)[edit]

It is about four friends; Boman (Aashish Chaudhary), who lives a wealthy lifestyle with his eccentric dad, Nari (Asrani), who loves his antique car more than his son, and asks his son to leave when he damages the car; dim-witted Manav (Jaaved Jaffrey), his elder brother Adi (Arshad Warsi); and Roy (Ritesh Deshmukh), a trickster who wears a magnetized belt buckle. Their fortunes take a turn after they accidentally bump into an underworld don Bose (Prem Chopra) whilst he is about to die, who tells them about a hidden treasure in Goa including 10crores under a big 'W'. The group race towards Goa in Nari's stolen car, little knowing that their plans will soon be foiled, albeit hilariously, by Police Inspector Kabir Nayak (Sanjay Dutt), who wants the money at any cost. Kabir meets those 'four friends' and made a deal. They go to Goa and discover the big 'W'. They took the money, but accidentally they came to a charity function with huge amount of money and they have to give the money to orphan children.

Double Dhamaal (2011)[edit]

The story continues from the previous film. The four good-for-nothing friends Roy (Ritesh), Adi (Arshad), Manav (Jaaved) and Boman (Aashish), are still conning people for a living. One day, they see their enemy Kabir (Sanjay Dutt) driving the luxurious Mercedes Benz, and disguise themselves to find out the secret behind his success. They investigate and find that he lives off his wife's wealth. They then blackmail him into making them his business partners, but little do the four idiots know that Kabir and his wife Kamini (Mallika) along with his sister Kiya (Ranaut) have an agenda of their own. Kabir connects them with an investor named Bata Bhai (Satish Kaushik) who is also a part-time don. The four friends steal Bata Bhai's money, and the money is then stolen by Kabir and his family. Kabir leaves the country along with his family, and leaves the four idiots to get killed by Bata Bhai. However, the four friends leave the city and manage to track Kabir down in Macau. They make a plan to ruin Kabir's happiness and take their money back by going in disguise. Roy cons Kiya by pretending to be in love with her, whilst Adi pretends to be Kabir's secretary.

Production of Total Dhamaal[edit]

Director Indra Kumar has decided to opt out the female leads after the critical failure of Double Dhamaal and bring back the entire cast from the hit film Dhamaal with one change. The film's music rights were sold to T-Series for 5 Crores. The director says it is a comical script and will definitely impress Dhamaal fans, and fans of comedy films.
