Jagran Rating:

Story line: Sajid Khan is again back with another nonsensical, humourous comedy Housefull 2 and this time with an even bigger star-cast than its prequel. This time there are four heroes, four heroines and four fathers — all trying to find the right partner for their children. Dabboo (Randhir Kapoor) and Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) are step brothers who are always at loggerheads and compete to see who will find the richest groom for their respective daughters Bobby (Jaqueline Fernandes) and Henna (Asin). They zoom in on one groom — Jolly (Riteish Deshmukh), the son of the richest Indian in Britain JD (Mithun Chakraborthy) but he’s in love with someone else named Parul (Shazahn Padamsee).

Here comes Max (John Abraham) and Sunny (Akshay Kumar) who are sent to Kapoors’ house as the ‘ik lauta beta’ of  JD by Jai (Shreyas Talpade) and Jolly (Ritesh Deshmukh). Somehow they manage to convince both the fathers that they are real Jolly. After some twist and turns all the characters land up in the same house in the second half of the movie and the subsequent confusion turns into a turmoil. There are four Jollys in the film now, out of which three are fake, causing much confusion among the brides and their fathers.

Thumbs up:

After watching the movie, you can be surprised about why the veteran actors like Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor could do these kinds of meaningless roles, though both appear trying hard to deliver their best. Among the four hotties, Asin is the only one who has some scope to act; while the others are perfect eye-candies. Akshay Kumar carries the film on his shoulders. His comic timing is really appreciable. Akshay-John chemistry has again spelled its magic. The duo’s sequences together are quite entertaining. Ritesh, as a young Marathi bachelor, is funny and does justice to his role.

The first half of the movie will tickle your funny bones for sure. Dialogues are witty and hilarious. Cinematography is good. One more thing, there are some action sequences which are more entertaining than the comedy.

The songs are the high point of the movie. Malaika Arora looks fabulous in her item number- Anarkali disco chali. Apart from this, ‘Pappa toh band bajaayein’ is also a chart topper. The background score is normal and in-sync with the movie genre.

Thumbs down: Though the movie starts with a laugh-riot, the second half losses its excitement as it proceeds. The climax is stretched, yet acceptably amusing in parts. The storyline is weak and predictable. The screenplay writer could have done little more hard work.

The movie is definitely not a laugh-riot, but in few parts it may leave you with crump in tummy. Sajid Khan is such a director who believe in no logic in films expect entertainment. So movie goers who always try to find any intelligence or logic in movie don’t go to watch Housefulll2, it not for you guys.
