Total Dhamaal might have performed well at the box office but it did not open to good reviews. Film critics Saibal Chatterjee, in his review for NDTV, gave Total Dhamaal one star out of five and wrote: "Total Dhamaal is total duh: a slapstick caper that lurches from one brainless gag to another as a bunch of grownups stop at nothing to outdo each other in making utter fools of themselves."
Apart from Ajay Devgn, Total Dhamaal also stars Madhuri Dixit, Anil Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Esha Gupta and Riteish Deshmukh among others. It is the third installment of the comedy series Dhamaal.
