The comic caper Housefull 2 is finally out after a long wait. The utterly hilarious comedy is dished out for your pleasures and entertainment. The film is the sequel to Sajid Khan’s superhit comedy ‘Housefull’. The madcap entertainer features the big star cast – Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, John Abraham, Shreays Talpade, Asin, Zarine Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shazahn, Boman Irani, Mithun Chakraborty, Rishi Kapoor to Randhir Kapoor. Sajid was pretty sure for the success prior to the release and the man might be right as the film has potential to hit the hearts and bag the good results at the box office.
The direction is fabulous and is potentially great to get the viewers glued to the screens till the climax. Story is fantastic and script is strapping but lacks somewhere as well. The film vows to give you bigger laughs and a well-knitted comedy to enjoy with. Watch this film putting your mind aside since it does not offer any intellectual factor at all.
Movie talks about four fathers (Boman Irani, Mithun Chakraborty, Randhir Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor), four daughters (Zarine Khan, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez and Shazahn Padamsee) and four sons in laws (Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Ritesih Deshmukh and Sheryas Talpade). The fathers want their daughters to get married with richest guys and girls too are under the impression that they are marrying with richest guys and each son in law portrays to be the richest one. They all live under one roof at same house.
Sajid Khan has made this film for the common masses which is why there is no intellectual comedy etc. It has been targeted to entertain the people and he has succeeded in his efforts.
First half of the film is laced with fun. Second half is something pleasure spoiling when the fun quotient seems to take the backseat.
Sajid is a good storyteller and he impresses with his direction. Story idea is great. Script by Sajid Khan, Tushar Hiranandani and Frahad is wonderful but consists of some flaws as well, which can be ignorable. Cinematography is first rate. Editing is okay. Music is melodious.
Akshay Kumar is in his elements. John Abraham attracts. Riteish is as usual brilliant. Shreyas Talpade is a class to watch. Asin is brilliant. Jacuqline, Zarine and Shazahn are glamorous and good actresses. The mature star cast from Boman Irani to Mithun Chakraborty to Ranndhir and Rishi all are great to watch.
On the whole, Housefull 2 is a well-made hilarious comedy that should be watched.
