Full of stars and flaws..
8 April 2012 | by eh5963-297-967354See all my reviews

I've always seen Sajid Khan shout out in interviews that he does not make movies for critics. I respect that. I feel every fimmaker should make a film that pleases them and the audience and not for reviews. However, that does not mean they should take their audience for granted. Sajid does just that in this flick. I wasn't a huge fan of Housefull but still I found it enjoyable. I walked in the theaters expecting just a normal entertainer and what I get from this film is a lot of unanswered question.

Why exactly do the Kapoors even hate eachtother? How is that Akki-John, Asin-Jaquelin become friends again that quick? How do people not know Mithun's past despite him being one of the riches people of the UK? And that too in this high technology wikipedia-google age? Why does John continue trying to con Randhir Kapoor if he wasn't the one they were suppose to con?

The story is intended to confuse the viewer. That is okay but it's very flawed.

Mithun all the sudden turning into a goon again is ridiculous! I mean, are we idiots?

I feel Sajid needs to go past these done to death identity confusion movies. David Dhawan and Priyadarshan have mastered this. I do feel Sajid is better than this. He showed that in his first film Heyy Babby.

Writing is weak. Music is alright. Papa toh band bajaye is good.

His direction is good but needs work on script. Dialogue is first rate, however. A lot of questions come and go unanswered. That is the writing at fault. Sajid needs to do films with a plot instead of this crap. Heyy Babby still remains his best film.

Akshay Kumar is good. Still, his comedy is just not the same anymore. John is good. Ritesh is alrite. Shreyas is okay.

Randhir, Rishi and Mithun are great actors and do their job but needed better roles.

Asin is wasted. Rest are okay.

Overall - A disappointment that is a decent pass time but still is the worst of Sajid's films.
