Not to forget the out and out comedy, Houseful has created a year ago… right from the first frame of the film till the end credentials, the entire film was a treat for all those comedy lovers. Keeping the success of the film in mind, the sequel has made and released… did the sequel has managed to support the original version or not?

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….

    The first half of the film starts with the footage and pictures of 26/11 attacks in 2008. The movie catches pace with Saif has been appointed by RAW and the interesting screenplay takes the film to the next level. The nail biting narration throughout makes the film highly impressive. The second half of the movie has been completely engaging. Though there are some dips in the second half of the film, the pre climax episodes along with an impressive climax takes the film to the next level. On the whole the complete second half reaches the expectations after a terrific first half.

    You can watch two films by paying for one, if you think it’s awesome, you will be proved wrong. Post-Intermission, the film becomes tedious and the simple film making style will become predictable and bore. As the film progresses, Dashrath ages dramatically with all the fuzzed up wigs and beards looking awfully glued.With all in place, the film does not qualify to receive any superlatives because of the inconsistency in the pace. It is akin to other Ketan Mehta’s films in terms of film sets and milieu.


  • All Is Well Movie Review
    All Is Well Movie Review

    The humour might have been written after watching Bollywood 90’s collection, hence is old and tired. Continuity takes a toss with teleport being a common fold in the film. Things disappear out of the frame and come back in the next and do not ask for more, that is actually more entertaining to spot than anything else in the film. The film runs on a formula, hence a few goons chase them heroes for a repayment of loans Rishi Kapoor must have made. Followed by some cops and in between comes item songs in which Abhishek is seen dancing his signature steps. For the better of plot, a runaway bride and some family melodrama makes it a Bollywood potboiler, and slowly everything fades away to make the film jarring. With All Is Well, every craft is taken care of intricately, only the screenplay was left to the dogs. The film, a comedy of errors, produced by Bhushan Kumar and Shyam Bajaj is an error itself, for it lacks pace and a feeler. Actually, what were they thinking?


  • RangiTaranga Movie Review
    RangiTaranga Movie Review

    There are movies that often scare the audience either with the music or with jump scares. Drawing examples from the movies Insedeous or The Conjuring, the audiences are now well aware of how a movie generally works. Filmmakers are becoming more and more mundane with the way they approach the movie. But, here is a movie that breaks all the odds and puts out a brilliant story with all the horror elements in place. RangiTaranga, a Kannada movie which released recently has won the hearts of a lot of people across the world. Not only does it capture the horror essence, but gives an innate feel. The new wave around it will leave you feeling haunted. The good part about the movie is that, it doesn’t stick to just one genre. The director, Anup Bhandari, has played with different genres to suit the screenplay and storyline.  While the genre, horror, can sometimes backstab in the box office collection, Rangitaranaga gets a thumbs up from all the critics as well as from the audience.   Technicians Technically, the movie will make heads turn. This would be the first time that Hollywood technicians are handling the cinematography for a Kannada film. ‘Lance Kalpan’ and ‘David Williams’ have brought life to the already bright story. The interesting cinematography will make you bite your nails and jump up your seats. As for the music and background music, ‘Anup Bhandari’ and ‘B. Ajaneesh Loknath’, have made it spine chilling. It can even be said that B. Ajaneeshis the third hero of the movie for his startling talent.


  • Uppi 2 Movie Review
    Uppi 2 Movie Review

    Upendra once again shows everyone the mettle and the potential he possesses as a Director and as an actor. Being the director and also the lead role, it becomes tough to manage the creative quotient but Upendra, pulls it off with ease. The movie has everything which an Upendra fan will expect. Uppi 2 does not fail to impress the audience with its gripping screenplay and awesome story telling and is filled with high commercial values and entertainment. Though there were no comedy scenes and songs. People will love the Interval bang and it is mind blowing


  • Brothers Movie Review
    Brothers Movie Review

    The good: As a matter of fact, this might be the first time that fight sequences had such extensive detailing of a high-tech arena, glittering with bright lights, deafening spectators, foreign fighters, excitable commentators ( Zutshi) in Bollywood. While most of it has a look and feel of WWF and Hollywood fight flicks, the hooded faces, the slow motions, uniformed assistants marching up the ramp, the beats all are in place and adds a grandeur to the boxing sequences. The bad: Well, there particularly isn’t a point when you think things are bad in the movie as you will never be able to differentiate between the good parts. Yes, that does mean there are no scenes except plain boxing sequences. The background score rocks the theatres with unnecessary instrumentation. Warning, Carry your earplugs or insure your ear drums.
