Housefull-2

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….

  • Raman Raghav 2.0 Movie Review
      2.5
    Raman Raghav 2.0 Movie Review

    The movie lacks a well written story and it has been much concentrated on too much of realistic incidents which keep the film low despite of some stupendous performances by the lead actors. The first half of Raman Raghav 2.0 has been stupendous and the performances along with the serial killing episodes make the film much interesting.  On the whole the first half has been decent and interesting.The second half of the film has nothing much to reveal as the characters have been well defined and narrated completely during the first half. The film lacks pace due to unwanted episodes and the back to back murders kill the interest among the audience. The film fails to create a captivating experience and it will just appeal to a section of audience who are completely interested in realistic dramas.

    Udta Punjab Movie Review

    The first half of the film starts with lot of interest and the lead characters in the movie have been well narrated. The movie takes the much needed pace after the movie gets into the story. The drug abuse and how the youth have been getting addicted to drugs have been well narrated. The songs have been apt and they brought out the much needed pain and feel in the film. The interval episodes bring up lot of interest in the audience and on the whole the first half of Udta Punjab has been decent but not completely impressive.The second half of the movie loses the much needed grip and interesting narration. The major plot has been side tracked and the unwanted issues have been discussed much. The complete second half has been a huge failure and it will end up as a huge disappointment. The climax of the movie has been completely clichéd and unexpected.

    Do Lafzon Ki Kahani Movie Review

    The first half of the film has been interesting and entertaining throughout the film. Some of the episodes have been well narrated and the love making scenes have been shot well. The love story has enough depth and the action episodes along with the songs have been extremely well shot. The interval episodes have been interesting and on the whole the first half of Do Lafzon Ki Kahani has been decent and is impressive.However it all makes the difference during the second half and Do Lafzon Ki Kahani fails to stand tall during this crucial time. The entire second half has been a complete misfire and the movie misses the needed logic. The crucial scenes have not been executed well and the over dose of emotions along with the action make the film fall flat. Except the performances by the lead actors, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani has nothing much to reveal during the second half.

    Te3n Movie Review

    The first half of Te3n starts on a slow note and gets interesting after all the characters gets introduced. The movie gets interesting after it moves into the story and the pre-interval episodes catch the needed pace. The interval scenes have been interesting and they keep the film lively. On the whole the first half of Te3n makes a decent watch.The second half of the film has a completely different story to reveal. The movie lacks the needed gripping narration throughout that kills the entire thriller. The complete film has been dragged and is predictable from all the corners. The climax kills the complete film as it seems irrelevant and misses the needed logic. On the whole Te3n falls flat because of the confused and completely predictable second half.

    Housefull 3 Movie Review

    The first half of the movie has been interesting at parts as it promises decent entertainment. Though the film has enough lame episodes that irritate the audience, Housefull 3 can be still bearable throughout. The songs have been decent and the cinematography elevated the film well. The interval episodes make the film interesting and on the whole the first half of Housefull 3 has been ok.The second half of Housefull 3 dips down completely in all the available ways. The film tests the patience of the audience and the entertainment becomes senseless. The movie has been dragged much and the climax episodes have been shot decent. The performances by all the actors except Akshay Kumar and Boman Irani have been below the expected line. On the whole the second half of Housefull 3 is a huge down fall and is the reason for the film’s debacle.

    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.
