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….

  • Phobia Movie Review
    Phobia Movie Review

    The first half of the movie starts on a normal pace and has no interesting moments during the first half. The movie has no scope for music and the cinematography of Phobia has been highly impressive. The pre-interval episodes take pace and the movie turns quite interesting. On the whole the first half of the movie has been just ok with some interesting moments.The second half of Phobia too has some good and interesting episodes throughout the film. However the film lacks the real thrills that are much needed in the film. The performances by the lead actors take the film to the next level completely. The technical aspects make the film brilliant to look and on the whole the second half of Phobia has some decent episodes along with some outstanding performances.


  • Veerappan Movie Review
    Veerappan Movie Review

    The entire first half of Veerappan has been completely realistic and is interesting throughout. It builds up the story and discusses about the life style of Veerappan which many of them are unaware of. The movie has been shot in realistic locales and Ram Gopal Varma comes back with a bang. The entire first half of Veerappan has been flawless and gripping all around with an interesting interval episode.The second half of the movie witnesses a slight dip in between but the interest and the suspence has been maintained all over. The performances by the lead actors take the film to the next level all over. The climax brings a huge impact on the audience and Veerappan is a movie that may not appeal to all the sections of audience but it is sure a brave attempt from Ram Gopal Varma and his team. The technical aspects have been stupendous throughout the movie.


  • Sarbjit Movie Review
    Sarbjit Movie Review

    The first half of the movie starts on an interesting note revealing about a Punjabi family and the sudden sequences that alter the entire situations of the family. The director made sure that he has taken all the important aspects of Sarbjit’s life that happened in 23 years. The unnerving story of a farmer has been exceptionally presented and the songs match the film’s mood completely. On the whole the complete first half is a treat and will surprise the audience several times.The second half of the movie has huge dose of emotions and the realistic episodes have been stupendously narrated on screen. Though Sarbjit’s role has been restricted to the four walls of the jail, they reveal many emotions and Randeep has done wonders with his exceptional performance throughout. The technical aspects along with Aishwarya Rai’s fearless performance takes the film to the next level. The heart touching and brutal climax needs a special mention and Sarbjit is the best work of Omung Kumar till date. To say the complete second half has been narrated in the best gripping and engaging way.


  • Azhar Movie Review
    Azhar Movie Review

    The first half of Azhar has been completely interesting as it narrates some crucial points that happened in the life of Mohammad Azharuddin. The complete narration has been girpping enough that it surprises the audience though they know the complete plot of the film. The songs and the entertainment along with Emraan Hashmi’s performance makes the first half outstanding. The interval episodes have been quite interesting.The second half of Azhar too maintains the expected race. The love story along with the struggle of the legendary cricketer has been well narrated which makes the film worth watching. The screenplay is the major highlight of the movie and the climax of Azhar takes the film to the next level. On the whole Azhar is sure worth watching for the acting abilities by Emraan and for the engaging narration by Tony D’Souza. On the flipside, some of the scenes have been completely irrelevant and many characters have not been well justified.


  • 1920 London Movie Review
    1920 London Movie Review

    The first half of 1920 London starts on an interesting note but the director fails to maintain the suspense and curiosity throughout. The movie falls down at time irritating the audience however it picks again after a huge downfall. The songs have been decent and well shot. On the whole the complete first half of 1920 London has some interesting episodes but they are not alone enough to sustain and stand strong. The second half of 1920 London is a complete misfire in all the available ways. The complete film has been faked out with lot of unnecessary episodes throughout the film. The pre-climax episodes spoil the mood of the film and the climax has been completely predictable. On the whole the complete second half of 1920 London fails to impress the audience and will fall flat as a debacle.


  • One Night Stand Movie Review
    One Night Stand Movie Review

    The first half of One Night Stand has been decent with many interesting moments throughout. The movie has been filled with fresh romantic episodes and the love making scenes have been shot well. The songs have been decent and placed well. The interval brings a decent impact on the audience and the complete first half makes the film decent. With most of the plot narrated during the first half of the movie, the makers have been left with nothing much to showcase and so the rest of the movie has been dragged too much. The climax of the movie has been simple and predictable completely. The second half of One Night Stand is a huge disappointment which makes the film fall flat.
