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….

    Ok Jaanu Movie Review

    The film starts on a fresh note however the Bollywood audience witnessed many similar films in the past. It is the performances which make the film going and the songs are completely melodious and have presented well on screen. The interval episodes make the film interesting however the entire first half of Ok Jaanu is completely predictable. The second half of Ok Jaanu dips down badly after a convincing and interesting first half. The movie turns emotional and the dose of sentiment leave the audience irritated. The pace slows down as time proceeds and the pre-climax episodes spoil the entire film’s flavour. The climax of Ok Jaanu has been positive however the second half of Ok Jaanu is a huge disappointment.

    Dangal Movie Review

    Dangal is completely about wrestling and the first half of the film looks entertaining and gripping. Though the pace of the film has been slow, the performances and the power-packed performances of the lead actors take the film to the next level completely. The first half of Dangal takes over the family emotions and it takes ample time to get you indulged into the film’s plot. The interval episodes make Dangal a masterpiece.A sports biopic will sure be predictable and Dangal is not an exception at all. However the second half is all about the journey of Mahavir’s daughters how they work hard and end up at the International level makes the film. The climax and the emotional content strike a chord completely and are the major highlights of the film. On the whole Dangal is a must watch film because of the gripping narration and the power-packed performances.

    Wajah Tum Ho Movie Review

    The first half of Wajah Tum Ho offers nothing much except the same old, routine and predictable narration that we have seen in many crime romantic thrillers. The plot has nothing new to reveal however the director tried to bluff the audience as if the film has interesting twirls. The songs have been decent however the romantic episodes too looked fake. The interval episodes look completely unusual and on the whole the first half of Wajah Tum Ho offers nothing. After such a disappointing first half, the audience expected less obviously however the film dips down even further during the second half. Even the songs fail to impress the audience and the female leads irritate the audience with their glamorous acts. The special songs test the patience of the audience and the climax has been shot in a hurry. On the whole the second half of Wajah Tum Ho too offers nothing.

    Befikre Movie Review

    Aditya Chopra’s 'Befikre', created a stir with sizzling trailer. The film is all about the modern day relationships and how individuals today are lost in translation of concepts such as commitment, acceptance and the ultimate leap of faith that love is. The first half of the film is light-hearted. It moves through Dharam and Shyra’s past and present relationship.  The second half slips too much in terms of logic. The story drags towards the climax.

    Kahaani 2 Movie Review

    Kahaani 2 is nothing less when it is compared to the first instalment. The story has been well blended and the entire first half of the film is a sure shot classic. One cannot predict any episode from the film and the entire first half of Kahaani 2 is completely intriguing. The technical aspects elevate the film well and one will sure get impressed for the content throughout the first half. After an exceptional first half, one expects a gripping and stupendous second half which did not happen. However the film lives up the expectations. Some of the episodes have been loosely adopted and some are left unnatural. The pre-climax episodes bring back the needed interest and the climax has been showcased well. On the whole the second half of Kahaani 2 fall short but is sure not a disappointment.

    Dear Zindagi Movie Review

    The first half of Dear Zindagi rarely has something to express and it looks completely clitched. The screenplay has been hammered enough that it makes no difference. The entire first half has been wasted without revealing anything to the audience. Some of the episodes impress the audience but they make no impact on the whole. The visuals have been fresh and the interval episodes looked simple. On the whole the first half of Dear Zindagi is a disappointment.The second half of Dear Zindagi has been decent however it tests the patience of the audience. Some of the episodes have been dragged without any need. Once again the songs looked decent and the cinematography is the major highlight of the film. With many unusual episodes, Dear Zindagi looks slammed on the whole and the second half has been better but it too falls short of the expectations.
