the best bollywood comedy ever
31 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i normally don't like bollywood films, as i think they are too over-dramatic, and unrealistic but hungama has to be the best Hindi film i have ever seen. although the plot is a bit complicated, i felt the love story emerging was there best bit about the film, as i didn't know what was a going to be the final coupling. it was a film of misunderstandings, which has been done a lot in film, it was still very enjoyable in hungama. the only thing i didn't like was akshaye knanna's character,who i felt was over eager and a bit too cheesy, but i can tolerate him as it was an exceptional film, and i think the more you watch it, the more it will get funnier, but still the best bollywood romantic comedy i have ever seen.
