A musician finds himself on the run from a group of thugs with his friend and his estranged parents.
Umesh Shukla's 'All Is Well' is a lighthearted family-comedy, with a few entertaining moments, that leave a mark. However, the writing isn't always funny & lags at times. 'All Is Well' Synopsis: An estranged son, Inder (Abhishek Bachchan) returns home to help his father (Rishi Kapoor), who's in debt. But that's not all, Inder's mother has Alzheimer's & his lady-love tags along with him. Chaos follows...'All Is Well' is passable entertainment. It has some inspiring moments, that provide laughter. The first-hour is breezy & some of the comedic portions work nicely. Its the second-hour, that dips considerably. The humour wears out & the father-son conflict doesn't engage after a point. Even the climax looks hurried. In short, the first-hour is decent, but the second-hour doesn't really work. Sumit Arora & Niren Bhatt's Screenplay is a mixed bag. It begins well & is also funny, but post-interval, it loses pace. Sharper Writing was the need of the day! Umesh Shukla's Direction is ordinary. Sameer Arya's Cinematography is eye-filling. Editing isn't crisp. Music by Various Artists is energetic.Performance-Wise: Abhishek Bachchan does a fine job. He enacts his part sincerely. Rishi Kapoor is loud, but that's the demand of the character. Asin is limited to a few expressions. The Wonderful Supriya Pathak is wasted in an insignificant role. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub is first-rate. The talented actor plays the bumbling villain with terrific timing. Jameel Khan is adequate. Sonakshi Sinha sizzles in an item number. On the whole, 'All Is Well' works in parts. At best, a one-time watch!
