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….

    Drishyam Movie Review

    The first half of the movie is completely simple shot in a beautiful Goan village. The movie builds up the characters in the first half which has been narrated in an interesting way. The pre interval episodes catch up the attention and on the whole the complete first half has been impressive. For a thriller the second half of the film is quite crucial and that is what we find in Drishyam. The second half of the movie is quite gripping with nail biting episodes all the way. The performances of Ajay Devgn and Tabu take the film to the next level and the climax has been real stunning. On the whole the second half of the movie makes a huge impact on the audience ending the film in a positive way.

    Bajrangi Bhaijaan Movie Review

    The first half of the movie has been slow and the narration lacks entertainments. The songs have been shot well and there are fun filled elements that bring laughs. The emotional episodes have been carried quite well and on the whole the first half of the movie has been decent throughout. The second half of the movie takes many dips and downs which makes the movie uninteresting. The audience expect Salman Khan style entertainment which is not at all seen throughout. The pre climax episodes lack the needed feel and on the whole the complete second half has been ok.

    Baahubali Movie Review

    The first half of the movie goes slow but interesting. The visuals and the graphics have been decent with Prabhas’s stunning screen presence. The movie gets interesting during the pre interval episodes and catches the needed momentum. Though the story line has been thin and straight, the narration has been decent which makes the film interesting all the way. The second half of the movie gets more interesting with the pace and the graphics have been good at quality. The war episodes have been shot well though some of them have been repeated and on the whole the second half has been well shot with huge episodes.

    Terminator Genisys Movie Review

    The first half of the film starts with a quick narration about James Cameroon’s original version. Though the bonding has been narrated well enough, the movie fails to grab interest except some breathtaking action sequences. Some of the emotional episodes have been captured well which makes the first one hour not a bad film. The second one hour of the film takes a different path. The lore is disconnected and rewired, bringing lot of confusion. The terror has not taken the bloody side which could not bring the fear among the audience thus ending up disappointed. The second half of the film is a sure downfall and is completely a misfire. The climax of the movie makes Terminator Genisys even worse.

    ABCD 2 Movie Review

    The film is inspired by the real-life story of Mumbai-based Fictitious Dance Group members who competed at the World Hip Hop Dance Championships in 2012. Prabhu Deva's character has obvious parallels with Chak De India's Kabir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) who after being labeled as traitor coaches a struggling team to a world cup win and proves his patriotism win or we can also see similarity with Iqbal's  Naseerudin Shah , a drunk coach who later guides the protagonist ( Shreyas Talpade) to become a successful bowler. Perhaps the film needed a better treatment in both writing and editing department. The length of the film is another major issue as the second half is unnecessarily long. The film with its lazy dialogues and predictable plot fails to hold the audience's attention. Though the film has more inescapable parts where the film loses the viewer, on a whole the film looks okay. The film is clean and healthy family fare.

    Hamari Adhuri Kahani Movie Review

    First things first. Despite having a huge 'star presence' in the form of acting power horses like Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao, the film simply fails to register in the minds of the audience. And the main reason for the same is its weak script that is combined with heavy melodrama, which is tough to digest in today's time. It's hard to believe that Mahesh Bhatt who has written this script after a long time is stuck in such a time warp. It is indeed even more shocking that HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI comes from the same filmmaker who gave back to back hits like AASHIQUI 2 and EK VILLAIN last. But, in the case of HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI, one can't help but blame its poor script and direction. Despite the fact that the film does have its share of gripping moments, in totality, the film seems to be a letdown. The film's characters are half baked and operate on some bizarre logic which makes you laugh after a point! There is also barely any built up for Emraan and Vidya's love story. Eventually, you just don't feel anything for any of the characters!
