Funny & Entertaining!
6 April 2012 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

A sequel to the 2010 Hit, Housefull, 'Housefull 2', Directed by Sajid Khan, is a Funny & Entertaining Film, that lives up-to the mark. Its Paisa-Vasool Entertainment, that never pretends to be anything else.

'Housefull 2' tells the story of four fathers, four daughters and four prospective sons-in-law. Each father wants his daughter to marry the richest son-in-law. Each daughter thinks she is marrying the richest son-in-law. Each son-in-law is pretending to be the richest son-in-law. However, none of these people can stand each other and all of them are under one roof, in one house.

'Housefull 2' is hilarious in parts. The First-Hour entertains, while the Second-Hour, when all the characters come under one roof, is equally entertaining & funny. Even the climax, though loud, its arresting. The Screenplay progresses rapidly & each character is memorable. Sajid Khan's Direction is fine. Music by Sajid-Wajid, is fabulous.

Performance-Wise: Mithun is a delight to watch. His portions stand out, thanks to his performance. Rishi Kapoor & Randhir Kapoor are funny. Akshay Kumar is always dependable when it comes to comedy, and he does well yet again. John Abraham is ordinary, while Ritesh Deshmukh & Shreyas Talpade are only getting better. Boman Irani scores big time in a small role. Asin Thottumkal does a decent job. Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan & Shazahn Padamsee get very limited scope. Chunky Pandey & Johnny Lever bring the house down, they are impeccable. Ranjeet's Cameo, is fun.

On the whole, 'Housefull 2' is a complete entertainer, that's not meant to be taken too seriously. Go, Have Fun!
