Nothing in comparison to Hungama
16 February 2005 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

Hulchul doesn't even stand a chance of being almost as funny as the best comedy I have ever seen, Hungama. Hulchul, once again, reverts to the same old Bollywood formula film with the same plot. Advertised as a comedy, there is so much pointless maar-dhaar and melodrama. Songs aren't that great either. Akshaye and Kareena gave good performances. Priyadarshan is totally unpredictable. Sometimes he'll give a Hera Pheri or Hungama, and sometimes he'll give a Hulchul or a Yeh Tera Ghar Yeh Mera Ghar. Before ending this review, though, there is one scene that is stomach-hurting hilarious in this movie. I'll just say one word--cow. If nothing else, watch that scene. It'll definitely tickle your funny bone.
