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….

  • Madaari Movie Review
    Madaari Movie Review

    The first half of the film doesn’t excite one so much but the film has been decent throughout because of some interesting episodes throughout. The performance of Irrfan will sure have a massive impact on the audience all over. The narration has been decent though there are some interesting episodes that kill the flavour. On the whole the first half of Madaari has been decent and ok.The second half of Madaari has been dragged too much and it lacks the needed interesting narration. Many of the episodes have been dragged too much which kill the film completely. Having an actor like Irrfan Khan, one can elevate the film with his outstanding performance, but it completely killed the film. The uninteresting climax makes the film fall flat. On the whole the second half of Madaari has nothing much to reveal and is the reason for the film’s debacle.


  • Kabali Movie Review
    Kabali Movie Review

    Kabali starts on an interesting note and the first half of the movie makes the audience impressive because of some interesting and emotional episodes throughout the movie. Rajini’s mannerisms and style impresses the audience big time though the film lacks in other departments. The songs of the film have been Tamil flavoured and the entertainment has been quite low. On the whole the first half of Kabali has been passable.The second half of the film lacks the needed interesting episodes throughout the film. Most of the episodes have been dragged too much that irritate the audience completely. Some of the interesting episodes have been narrated in a hurry that leave the audience in deep shock. The pre-climax of the film kill the entire movie and on the whole the second half of Kabali is a massive debacle and it fails to reach the expectations.


  • Great Grand Masti Movie Review
    Great Grand Masti Movie Review

    Great Grand Masti comes with huge expectations as the first two from this genre have been massive hits. The first half of the movie has been just below the average line as the film lacks the interesting and some rib tickling comedy. Though the performances by the lead actors has been decent and interesting, the film lacks the gripping narration and an interesting plot. On the whole the first half of Great Grand Masti fails badly in making the audience engaging though it has entertainment at parts. The second half too takes the same role and it fails to impress the audience. The plot has enough flaws and one can easily know that they have been faked out completely. The songs have been bad and there is rarely a song that has enough melody. The average technical aspects fail to elevate the film and the climax ends up on a predictable note. On the whole, the second half of Great Grand Masti too has nothing much to offer.


  • Sultan Movie Review
    Sultan Movie Review

    The first half of Sultan has been exceptional in all the aspects. The presentation of the film has been outstanding and the dialogues have been sensible. The songs have been shot and placed well. The action episodes have been exceptional throughout the first half. The performances by the lead actors take the film to an untouchable place and the first half of Sultan is a treat to be watched.After such an impressive first half, the second half is not a let down at all and it has been carried well with the right emotions and enough dose of action episodes. The emotional episodes are the major highlights of the film and Salman Khan completely dominated the movie with his fearless performance. The climax has been heart touching and on the whole the second half of the film has been handled well that the film has all the ingredients to end up as a blockbuster.


  • Raman Raghav 2.0 Movie Review
    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
    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.
