A special promotional song costing Rs. 6 crore was shot by director Rohit Shetty for Golmaal Returns at the Filmistan Studios in Goregaon, Mumbai. The song, titled, Tha Karke, features the entire cast and crew of the film that included, Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Tusshar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Amrita Arora, Anjana Sukhani and Celina Jaitley. One can recollect, Shetty had shot a similar style number with the entire cast of his last film, Sunday and it featured in the film’s opening titles.
The theme of the song is Goan since this Golmaal sequel too is based in Goa just like Golmaal was. The shooting of the song took the team a good 10 days. The song number was choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. The major cost of the song shoot went into the very expensive set specially erected to recreate Goa in Mumbai. The film is all set to release during the Diwali time on October 31st. The music of the film is all set to be launched in a two week’s time.
Golmaal Returns may be a sequel, but it does not carry the same story ahead. It has the same actors with the same names in the original but in a different setting this time. In Golmaal Returns, Gopal (Ajay Devgan) stays with his wife Ekta (Kareena Kapoor), sister Esha & a dumb brother in law Lucky (Tusshar Kapoor). Gopal for one whole night gets stuck in a yacht after he saves an attractive young woman Meera (Celina Jeitly) from few goons on his way back home from his office. Due to the circumstances they stay back on the yacht. He arrives home the next day, and meets his very suspicious wife, Ekta, who is a hard core Saas bahu television soap viewer and suspects him of flirting with girls from his staff. Gopal finds it difficult to satisfy her with the incident which took place last night, and he invents a story about spending the night with a fictitious friend named Anthony Gonsalves. Ekta does not believe that he ever had a friend by that name, and decides to write to Anthony to come and visit her. Gopal then convinces one of his juniors, Laxman (Shreyas Talpade), to pretend that he is Anthony, and thus convince Ekta that he was indeed telling the truth. Laxman agrees to do so, and everything goes according to plan until the address on which Ekta had written a letter to Anthony turns out to be real. Meanwhile Gopal finds out that a dead body was found at the same location where he saved Meera from the goons. The investigating officer Maadhav (Arshad Waarsi) who is even Esha’s boyfriend and does not get well along with Gopal, finds out that Gopal was missing from his home that very night and the dead was an employee from his company. There begins Maadhav’s investigation – resulting in hilarious chaos.
