Two Kapoor sons — one real, who is born out of duty Chintu (Rishi), the other born out of love Dabboo (Randhir) as they spell it out — share a love to hate relationship. So while the brothers compete with each other to get their daughters married to the richest boy, their animal-loving daughters fight for the same award for protection of animals, and not to be outdone their wives fight for the face lift and botox appointments at a cosmetic clinic. After Jai’s (Shreyas) father gets a heart attack on being insulted by Chintu Kapoor, the dutiful son vows to avenge his father’s condition. He gets in touch with Jolly (Riteish), whose father JD (Mithun) is supposedly the richest man in UK. Together they rope in Max (John) to pose as Jolly and promise marriage to Heena (Asin) and then back out of it at the last minute to hurt Chintu. But a confusion leads to Max promising marriage to Randhir for his daughter Bobby (Jacqueline) instead. So, then they hire Sunny (Akshay) for the job. Riteish meanwhile is in love with JLo (Zareen), and Shreyas with Parul (Shazahn). Both Rishi and Randhir end up believing that their prospective son-in-law is JD’s son Jolly. Also in the picture is Bakul (Boman) with whose daughter JD had promised to get his son married. Not only from here till the climax of the film, right from the first frame of the film, we end up encountering with comic situations hitting one after the other…

Analysis :


The narrative often seems lost between two extremes and opts for a middle-of-the-road settlement. Like despite its wacky sense of filmy humour, the movie gets unnecessarily melodramatic at times. For instance, after effectively pulling off a wicked womanizer character, you don't expect Ranjeet to give a sermon on true love. Or you don't anticipate that the venom-spewing stepbrothers would be seized by instant brotherly love in the climax. So just when you enjoy an element, its antidote kills the fun. And if you noticed, I never ever 'criticized' about lack of logic, et al. That's pardonable by now in the slapstick scheme of things, as far as the proceedings are funny. What I am talking about here is the basic grammar of the genre that gets jumbled up.

Performance :


Akshay scores major applause amongst the rest all in the film, could be because the actor has mastered the mantra of ‘timing’, and John’s not too far behind. With dialogues like George Michael ka toh pata nahin, but you can have faith in me and Brad ka to pata nahin, magar tere wajah se hum pit mein zaroor hain,’ he manages to make you smile even if at the sheer silliness of it all. Asin, Riteish and Shreyas show a natural knack for comedy too and are equally impressive as they keep up to the comic timing. Giving this Gen equal takkar are the three seniors, Rishi, Mithun and Randhir who seem at ease playing OTT fathers. Chunky, Boman and the rest do fairly okay too. Rest all girls and roles in the film, did their best as per the space given to them.

Final Word‘Houseful – 2’ another hilarious flick for all those comic film lovers….

  • Beiimaan Love Movie Review
    Beiimaan Love Movie Review

    The movie has enough clinches throughout and it has not been properly written and executed. The songs have been placed well and Sunny Leone is the only saviour for the entire film. The twirls that come at regular intervals have been completely predictable and they do not excite the audience much. With a boring and outdated narration, the first half of Beiimaan Love has been below average. The second half of Beiimaan Love too follows the same path and it doesn’t have anything that excites the audience. The songs have been shot well and the visuals looked lavish. Sunny has been hot and ravishing in each and every frame in the film. The climax has been completely simple and on the whole the second half of Beiimaan Love is a huge disappointment.


  • Mirzya Movie Review
    Mirzya Movie Review

    The first half of Mirzya starts with a bang and the movie has its loud moments. It is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s narration that has been grand and loud all over. It never lets you down and the performances throughout the film take Mirzya to the next unusual level. It is the screenplay which makes the film interesting on the whole. The interval episodes raise the heat all over and on the whole the entire first half of Mirzya is a treat.However the second half has a huge dose of drama which makes the film fall down. Though the performances by the lead actors elevate the film once again, the film fails to make much impact. However it is again Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra who takes the film to the next level with his technical predictabilities. Some of the episodes have been well written and presented stupendous on screen which makes us forget about the flaws in the second half. On the whole the second half of Mirzya has been decent and is worth watching.


  • M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story Movie Review
    M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story Movie Review

    The first half of the film completely focusses on the struggles that Dhoni faced in his life. The director made sure that the film has interesting run time for the important aspects in his life. All his struggles during his early days have been showcased well. MS Dhoni: The Untold Story is all about an emotional journey of MS Dhoni which has been projected well on screen. However the first half looks slow and dragged abit. But on the whole, the first half is sure an impressive part if you ignore the length of the film.The second half of MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has many desperate moments that happen in the cricket dressing room and cricket politics along with Dhoni’s relation with his teammates. Most of the episodes have been narrated with utmost clarity and the film has been carried on well by Sushant Singh Rajput with his flawless and outstanding performance. However the film dips down at parts but on the whole, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story has an interesting and inspiring second half.


  • Banjo Movie Review
    Banjo Movie Review

    The first half of Banjo starts on an interesting note, however the film slips down completely even before the interval episodes. Banjo has been filled with logicless episodes which really test the patience of the audience. The songs have been decent however the major plot has been left completely away while indulging the commercial aspects into the film. On the whole the first half of Banjo has some engaging episodes but the audience will be left confused because of the narration midway.The second half of Banjo dips down completely because of the stupid elements that have no connection with the basic plot of the film. If you are patient enough, only then will you reach the climax of this film. Though the performances have been extremely convincing, Banjo will end up as the biggest disaster because of the poor narration throughout. The basic plot has been neglected completely and the audience will be left shocked with the treatment of the second half.


  • Pink Movie Review
    Pink Movie Review

    The first half of Pink has been stupendous when it comes to narration and execution. The plot has been well written and the movie has been well framed. Each and every scene looks extremely realistic. The performances by the lead actors make the film completely impressive. The gripping screenplay has been top notch and the pre-interval episodes make the audience blown away. The interval episodes make a huge impact and on the whole the first half of Pink has been extremely impressive. The second half of Pink too carries away the same momentum. Every time the film feels low, a twist comes out which will leave the audience puzzled. The performances once again have been top notch and the tight screenplay along with the gripping narration makes Pink highly impressive. The complete second half has been mind blowing and the climax ends up impressing the audience big time.


  • Raaz Reboot Movie Review
    Raaz Reboot Movie Review

    The first half of Raaz Reboot has some interesting experiences of the haunted house which bring curiosity among the audience. However things change completely after many of the episodes look predictable. The basic plot of the movie has been completely outdated and it has nothing new to reveal. Some of the scenes have been completely faked and the interval twist spoils the complete flavour of the film. On the whole the first half of Raaz Reboot has some interesting moments. The second half of the film is a complete boring feast and it offers nothing much to get excited. The cat and mouse chase looks completely unnatural and it has been predictable. The previous instalments of Raaz had some hot and sensuous romantic episodes but Raaz Reboot is an exception for them too. A simple and predictable climax make Raaz Reboot a debacle.
