Plot Summary
The film is the story of the dysfunctional Bhalla family, who set out on a road trip wherein they confront each other, fight with each other as well as understand each other, and realise the love for each other.#All is Well is the story of the dysfunctional Bhalla family, that consists of Inder Bhalla (Abhishek Bachchan), a confident and passionate singer who doesn't go along well with his father, his father Bhajanlal Bhalla (Rishi Kapoor), who runs a family bakery business, and his mother Pammi (Supriya Pathak), who is a patient of dementia and tries hard to maintain a balance between the father and the son. Inder has lived in Thailand for a decade to pursue a career in the music industry but is yet to find his big break. Before he can do so, he is forced to return to his hometown Kasol, to sort out a rift with the local gangster, Chima (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub), to whom his father owes a hefty sum due to the failing bakery business. To escape the wrath of Chima, the Bhalla family sets out on a road trip, and is later joined by a woman named Nimmi (Asin), who is madly in love with Inder. As the Bhallas are chased by Chima's goons, the family flees from one place to another, across Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. The eventful road trip gives them the opportunity to confront each other, fight with each other as well as understand each other, and realise the love for each other.
Trivia
This is the second film in which Abhishek Bachchan and Asin have shared screen space after Bol Bachchan (2012), although the duo played on-screen siblings in the latter.

Shraddha Kapor was the initial choice for Nimmi's role but she refused the film. There were rumours that she did not want to be paired with Abhishek Bachchan. The role then went to Asin.

Former actress-turned-politician Smriti Irani was supposed to play the role of Pammi, Inder's mother. However, when BJP government came to power in 2014 elections, she got the post of HRD minister, due to which she couldn't devote much time to the film and eventually withdrew from the project.

Actress Tanvi Azmi was considered as the replacement of Smriti Irani but she was already filming for her other film Bajirao Mastani (2015) at the same time for which she had to shave her head. Director Umesh Shukla then gave the role to Supriya Pathak.

The film's title was taken from a hugely popular song in Aamir Khan starrer 3 Idiots (2009).

NDTV|Review by Saibal Chatterjee
All is far from well with All Is Well, but this road trip dramedy has just about enough impetus not to be thrown completely off its chosen track by its occasional inertia.

Times of India|Review by Srijana Mitra Das
All Is Well lacks the cutting-edge sharpness or glittering depth of Umesh Shukla's OMG. With its old-world feel, it's not a cool cocktail but a teashop bun, dunked in sentimental tea. It could've been way better - but there's some sweetness too in this simple treat.

The Hindu|Review by Vishal Menon
From the makers of OMG: Oh My God! comes All is Well - a film so bad that you’re likely to keep repeating OMG as you try to sit through this ordeal.

Zee News|Review by Ritika Handoo
Filmmaker Umesh Shukla is best known for his terrific entertainer 'OMG - Oh My God!'. But if you think ( like I did) that 'All Is Well' will be something similar then you better be ready for an eyewash. The director has tried his best but it is the script which lets it loose.
