A lie may take care of the present but it has no future' but when a person lies to the Akhada king of Ranakpur - Prithviraj Raghuvanshi (Ajay Devgn), he makes sure that the person is left with no future ahead.

A young boy from Delhi, Abbas Ali (Abhishek Bachchan) has been drowning in his financial problems which lead him to his well wisher, Shastri's house in Ranakpur where he comes down to have a proper job to take care of himself and his sister Sania (Asin). Abbas accidentally falls prey to an indistinct situation which makes him lie about his name in front of the villagers in Ranakpur. This uncertain incident plays a very important twist in Abbas's life.

He lands up working as a supervisor under the strong Akhada king and an absolute lie hater Prithviraj Raghuvanshi. Destiny forces Abbas Malik to perpetrate a series of lies in front of his lie - hater boss!

A single person acting as two different entities, Abbas's topsy-turvy journey makes him lie lie and keep lying to his boss who hates liars to the core.

The fear of getting caught by his Akhada king lie hater boss ultimately turns Abbas into an Absolute 'Bol Bachchan'!

“..in "Bol Bachchan" honesty and dishonesty have the same comic weight, and their clash has no meaning. It just produces jokes, which are all the same: mad scrambles to make the lies watertight..”
