Total Dhamaal trailer: Quick take

Indianexpress.com's Mimansa says, "Total Dhamaal offers a mixed bag of comedy, adventure and a dozen characters. While the makers try to bring in many elements in this wild adventure, it also becomes a disadvantage at several places. It looks like each actor is vying for maximum screen time. With so much action happening, your mind begins to lose track of things."

Total Dhamaal is like a dream project for all of us: Indra Kumar

It was wonderful working on Total Dhamaal: Anil Kapoor

I have worked with my Raja, Beta team (director Indra Kumar, producer Ashok Thakeria and Anil Kapoor), and so, it's wonderful. The amount I have laughed in between the shots with this team, if the audience laughs even half of it, this film will be a success," says Madhuri Dixit.
