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….

  • A Flying Jatt Movie Review
    A Flying Jatt Movie Review

    The first half of A Flying Jatt has been completely gripping, hilarious, entertaining and interesting. The interest has been managed throughout and the songs have been shot extremely well. The episodes between Tiger and his mother will bring instant smiles throughout. The narration has been decent and the action episodes take out the blow. On the whole the first half of A Flying Jatt has been well written, gripping and thoroughly entertaining.The second half of the movie takes a mighty tumble as the film offers nothing after an interesting and such gripping first half. The action episodes make the film fall flat as they have been completely meaningless. The lose screenplay and the narration too have nothing much to do during the second half. Though the songs have been decent, the action episodes and a faked out climax make the film fall flat. On the whole the second half of A Flying Jatt is a huge misfire.


  • Happy Bhag Jayegi Movie Review
    Happy Bhag Jayegi Movie Review

    The first half of Happy Bhag Jayegi has been decent with sensible entertainment throughout. The narration has been decent and interesting which makes the audience impressed. The performances by the lead actors is the major highlight and the way the film has been presented will sure make everyone happy. On the whole the first half of the film has been decent and interesting with colorful songs and humorous entertainment throughout.The second half of the film turns predictable and dips down because of many sub-plots and stories. The romantic episodes look faked away however the presentation of the film still doesn’t make it fall flat. Some of the episodes seem completely forced and they do not make much impact. The pre-climax episodes seem so dragged and it is the performances which make the film lively and interesting. The climax has been decent and the second half of Happy Bhag Jayegi fails to live up the expectations because of the predictable screenplay and many unwanted episodes.


  • Mohenjo Daro Movie Review
    Mohenjo Daro Movie Review

    The movie is not really about Mohenjo Daro civilization but a story set in the backdrop of it. The story is very simple and a plot that has been witnessed lot of times before. The plot of Tollywood blockbuster ‘Bahubali’ is similar. However, director Ashutosh made the movie look engaging by setting it in an era and place where we are totally unfamiliar. He takes us to the world and makes us witness the proceedings without making it mundane anywhere.


  • Rustom Movie Review
    Rustom Movie Review

    While the first half of the movie is gripping, certain portions of the second half of "Rustom" might shift your eyes to your watch. The narration gets somewhat sloppy at certain points but the director manages to accelerate the pace soon again.After films like "Baby" and "Airlift," the audience had expected similar, if not more, action and thrill from Akshay in "Rustom." But the latest release does not have many enthralling moments to remember the film by. Also, there are some flaws in the movie that defy logic. One of the scenes shows an antagonist having strong evidence in his hand to put the protagonist behind bars but he merely waits for the police to reach him and collect the proof.


  • Fever Movie Review
    Fever Movie Review

    The first half is replete with confusion and the audience loses the plot several times. The narrative heads nowhere and does not get you hooked, despite desperate efforts to be true to the thriller genre. The second half drags as well and the resolution of the plot leaves you disappointed and abounds in loopholes.The stylised action, deafening background score and unwarranted scenes with forced attempts to add shock value do nothing to elevate the viewing experience. On the contrary, these make it even more complex and boring to watch.
