Story

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 :

HouseFull-2

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 :

Housefull-2

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….

    Gabbar Is Back Movie Review

    The first half of the film has been racy with power packed action episodes and powerful dialogues which make the audience stick to their seats and watch the film interesting. On the whole the first half of the movie has been gripping and sensible enough. The second half of Gabbar Is Back has dipped at times but the accident sequences have been managed well. The songs have been poorly shot which makes the film fall at times. But the climax of the movie elevates the film which makes it a decent watch.

    Avengers Age of Ultron Movie Review

    Avengers: Age of Ultron is one heck of a superhero orgy as the mighty six - Iron Man (RDJ), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Capt America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) come face-to-face not only with the invincible Ultron, but various characters like Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany). With these numerous characters put together, you can't wait for the 'party to begin' and Whedon rewards your anticipation, right from the beginning and maintains it till the end. Fangasm guaranteed. AOU is no less than a spectacle (the opening scene in particular with the heroes in slowmo - midair as they pounce on their enemies) and you get exactly what you pay for. The unparalleled action is of epic proportions and makes the mammoth destruction shown in Man of Steel and the previous Avengers film pale in comparison. However, unlike the previous film which was more massy, this densely plotted sequel may appeal to the geeks more. For those not acquainted with the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), getting the threads together of this layered film could be a task. So, brush up on your Marvel jargon before watching this one. And finally the big question - Is AOU better than The Avengers (2012)? It is definitely bigger in scale and there's a romance brewing, but you miss Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his humour. If Avengers was a biryani, with all the flavours coming together seamlessly, AOU is a desi thaali, full of scrumptious dishes, but a tad in excess. It's spectacular, yet can leave you exhausted.

    Hingyaake Movie Review

    Kudos to debutant T S Sathyajith for selecting a good storyline. But a loose script and a messy narrative take away from the film. Haphazardly linked sequences add to the viewer's confusion. Even the comic sequences fall flat, with the lead actors lacking punch. With just a tad more effort, Prateek could have infused more life into the character. Deepthi Maane's performance is commendable, though she comes into the picture pretty late.

    Margarita With a Straw Movie Review

    It delivers a poignant and uplifting portrait of an individual determined to live life to the lees despite all the odds she faces owing to her restricted motor skills. Margarita, With A Straw narrates its emotionally arresting and startlingly revelatory story without resorting to the mawkish or the preachy. It is the sophistication of the making that stands out: Margarita, With A Straw is adroitly crafted. It eschews tear-jerking theatrics. And it does not take recourse to any shrill remonstrations to get its point across.

    Mr X Movie Review

    The first half of the film has too many loop holes and the script of the movie has not been gripping enough. The movie has been ok at times but it dips down from the next scene. On the whole the first half of the movie has nothing much to say about. The second half of the film has been interesting at times but the main needed plot has not been taken care. The villain’s character in the movie has not been written well and the story has been clumsy to narrate. On the whole the second half of the movie has been a major downfall.
