Write a Review for Housefull 2

housefull-2_bigWHAT'S IT ABOUT: An overflow of assorted characters are waiting for a joy ride in this merry-go-round there are the in-laws and the outlaws; the legitimate and the illegitimate.

Along with them is a python, a crocodile and even a horse. Somewhere along a dacoit is unearthed.

Further down the line to bring in the oomph factor, springs an Anarkali no less. And there is also a mansion the most imposing of them all.

Within minutes of the opening sequence, you know exactly what's coming your way. Typical over-the-top scenes and situations; drama and melodrama laced with lines that rhyme or simple balderdash.

As the subject of marriage always lends itself to colour, cheer, camadarie and has always been a hot favourite in Bollywood, the plot revolves around the hunt for appropriate brides and grooms.

But instead pop up some inappropriate ones till the pairs are all rightly matched. Director Sajid Khan weaves yet another no-brainer in this sequel of his 2010 flick Housefull.

His fascination for the films of the '70s and '80s continues as there are lots of references to the potboilers of those eras.

With a massive cast and an equally big canvas to match, the comic caper has every actor doing the same. Mouth the inane, resort to some slapstick comedy, break into a song and add to the on-going chaos.

WHAT'S HOT: Apart from the music, there are some scenes which raise the chuckle bar.

Look out for the crocodile being tossed sleeping pills by Akshay and Riteish (both stand out) and the cobra hissing away at John.

Both the Kapoors (Randhir and Rishi) are in a screaming match while the girl gang (Asin, Zarine, Jacqueline, Shazahn) add their bits dressed in their bits.

WHAT'S NOT: A comic caper can be senseless but it has to be fun. But in their enthusiasm to lace the script with every ingredient in the book, the end result is an overcooked, and not exactly palatable offering.

WHAT'S THAT? There are lots of smart lines but the desire to be extra smart leads to the inane cropping in. Like my name is Souza, is mauke ko paal pausa.

Rhyming it for the heck of it along with loads of toilet humour: Piles in the brain and Pasta ko raasta can make one squirm.

WHAT TO DO: This is a movie in which you have to leave your brains out of the auditorium. You may chuckle, laugh, smile or squirm (take your pick) on the silliness that unfolds.

You can step in and out of the auditorium, it won't matter.

If you want to see London turn into a dhobi ghaat (as Johnny Lever states in the film) go for it with a gang at least to know who among them laughed and who did not.
