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….

    Hawaizaada Movie Review

    The first of the movie begins with a confusion and the sets along with the atmosphere looks like fake and doesn’t seem like an 1895 India. The movie goes down during the narration and on the whole the first half falls below the average mark. The second half is slower and the narration of the film spoils the second half completely.  The songs of the movie are the real barriers and on the whole the second half makes the movie completely fall down.

    Baby Movie Review

    Baby' is a perfect vehicle for the times we live in: it gives us a home-spun hero who allows himself to be hurt but is invincible, and an enemy who is the easiest to demonise. The film is as simplistic as its title - Us vs Them, and no prizes for guessing who will win. In a messy world, where each action can have an equal and opposite reaction, what is the point of complexity?We are given a luxuriously-bearded mullah (based, clearly, upon a couple of real-life types) whose eyeballs have flames in them, and a crowd of followers who look as if they are ready for ‘jihad’. They raise blood-curdling slogans, and talk nasty about `Indiya’. The retaliatory measures undertaken by our hero are justified right in the beginning. Can’t have hate-spewing terrorists who hide out in countries-ringed-by-deserts-and-sand-dunes threatening our sovereign nation, can we?So we are meant to cheer when the skilled counter-espionage agent Ajay (Akshay Kumar) breaks bones and smashes faces, while a gruesome interrogation sets the scene. If they can bash our guys, we are allowed to bash right back, no questions asked. Ajay and his band of merry men, the impossibly buff Daggubati, and the sulky computer expert Anupam Kher, cause some amusement as they race around Turkey and Nepal and the Middle East, tracking the baddies. But the whole is familiar and much of it is tedious.

    Dolly Ki Doli Movie Review

    Debutant director Abhishek Dogra's Dolly Ki Doli, where Sonam Kapoor plays a bride who dupes men into marriage only to rob them of their cash and valuables, hits theatres this Friday. Is the film worth the time and money?  If there is anything that makes Dolly Ki Doli worth a watch, it is the performances. Rajkummar Rao, the first 'target' we see in the film, plays the perfect Haryanavi lad -- he is proud of his roots and forever ready to do anything for the girl he loves. Interestingly, it is not just the accent and dialogue delivery that makes his character believable: Even his body language and attitude matches.The other actor who does an excellent job is Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub (he played Dhanush's friend in Raanjhana). He is one of the members of the gang in which Dolly (Sonam) operates. Ayyub's character, Raju, is in love with Dolly but he knows it will go nowhere because Dolly only believes in 'faking' the marriage. In the put-up family that the gang forms to dupe families into weddings, Raju is Dolly's brother! Manoj Joshi as the father, too, is impressive.

    Alone Movie Review

    Alone has already been asserted to be a erotic horror  drama but don’t get carried away with its promos and songs which bends the movie more towards ‘sex’. Lovemaking scenes and sensual songs do occupy an appropriate chunk in the flick but without dissecting the main horror plot. Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover sizzle in these parts while their individual performances too are captivating.

    I Movie Review

    A model turning into a hunchback and taking revenge against the wrongdoers is the main plot of I. This could have been a slick thriller with racy screenplay and thrilling moments. However I is stretched too long for more than three hours without proper reason. Seems like Shankar just had an idea on mind and simply wrote a rough draft of script for it and went on to make a movie. There are far too many boring sequences in the film which will force you to take a break.Despite narrating the story in spaced flashback method, the screenplay hardly engages you due to its predictability. The techniques used by Vikram for taking revenge are not at all effective. Except for the brilliant performance of Vikram, there is nothing to admire about this poorly executed film. Shankar tried to explain everything in detail which is absolutely not necessary. This film disappoints on many levels as it comes from the master filmmaker. We could understand some mediocre director to make such lackluster movie, but coming from Shankar, I will hurt you even more.Weak script, overly long run time, poor execution, unexciting narration doesn't let I to live up to the hype it has generated. Rare disappointment from Shankar that will now rely on the festive audience to swim across to a safe zone. Given its high budget and massively disappointing content, I will need a miracle to click at the ticket windows. Watch I for Vikram if you are hell bent on watching it and make sure to keep your expectations as low as possible.

    Tevar Movie Review

    Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha shown commitment in movie.  More than that Manoj Bajpayee succeeded in playing the Gajender Singhrole which needs much talent to attract the audience. The shooting aspects are fine, Laxman Utekar has done a brilliant job of capturing both the cities beautifully in his Cinematography. Tevar (remake of Okkadu, a telugu movie) is a complete film. Direction by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and Music by Sajid-Wajid and Imraan Khan is brilliant. Songs such as ‘Superman,’ ‘Let’s celebrate’ are already being hummed by the movie and music lovers.Tevar resembles Okkadu but the picturization in UP and all other parts gives originality in the movie. Direction by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and Music by Sajid-Wajid and Imraan Khan is brilliant. Songs such as ‘Superman,’ ‘Let’s celebrate’ are already being hummed by the movie and music lovers.
