Ajay Devgan films and Shree Ashtavinayak Cinevision Ltd.’s Bol Bachchan is a remake of the comedy, Golmaal.
Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan) is forced by circumstances to move to a village with his sister, Sania (Asin), in search of a job. After Abbas saves the life of a kid, the village strongman, Prithviraj Raghuvanshi (Ajay Devgan), hires him as the supervisor of his estate. But Prithviraj thinks that Abbas is named Abhishek Bachchan, a lie that Abbas does not dispel.
Knowing fully well that Prithviraj will break his bones if he learns that he has been lied to, Abbas keeps mum and hopes that his honest work will save him from Prithviraj’s wrath. Sania and others support Abbas’ decision and help cover his lie. He starts living a dual life, Abbas at home and Abhishek at work. He soon becomes Prithviraj’s trusted aide.
One day, when Prithviraj sees Abbas offering namaz and confronts him, Abbas propagates the lie of having a second, look-alike brother, a la Golmaal. Prithviraj believes in Abbas and even meets his fake mother (Archana Puran Singh). Prithviraj also starts falling in love with Sania, who, incidentally, looks like his dead ex-girlfriend. Prithviraj’s sister, Radhika (Prachi Desai), who has just returned from the city, falls in love with Abbas.
However, when Prithviraj’s right hand man (Neeraj Vohra) finds out the truth about Abbas and Abhishek being the same persons, things start falling apart as Abhishek/Abbas has to keep lying continuously to save his skin. What happens next? Does Prithviraj learn the truth about Abbas? Or does he remain in the dark? Does Prithviraj’s love for Sania fructify? What about Radhika and Abbas’ affair? The rest of the drama and the climax answer these questions.
