Kasa kay Mumbai??? Well 1st very sorry, dhinchakmumbai.com is not been update since few days (don’t worry we are not closing down ) we are coming out with new avatar of the website, so thoda intezar karo. Technically we are not suppose to post any articles on the site till the 10th of April but somehow after watching “Housefull 2 “ I could not stop myself from writing my experience of the movie.
After the success of “Housefull” Sajid and Sajid (lolz!) got back for the sequel “Housefull 2“. This time the story is written by other Sajid i.e.the producer Sajid Nadiadwala . The story is about a confusion created by the characters in a big house where the 2 big daddies i.e. Rishi Kapoor & Randhir Kapoor who are looking for an ideal big wealthy damad (Son-in-law) and end up in a mess.
JD (Mithun Chakraborty) is the wealthiest person of UK who has a son called Jolly (Ritesh Deshmukh) and Jolly has 3 other friends – Sunny (Akshay Kumar) , Max (John Abraham) & Jai ( Shreyas Talpade). So the problem starts when Chintu Kapoor (RIshi Kapoor) & Daboo Kapoor (Randhir Kapoor) start looking for the wealthiest Son-in-law for their daughter – Heena (Asin) & Bobby (Jacqueline Fernandez) . In the fight for searching the best son-in-law , the confusion starts when Sunny enters the house of Chintu Kapoor as Jolly , the son of JD & similary Max enters the house of Daboo Kapoor as jolly, the son of JD , where as the real son of JD is made the driver. Jolly is in love with Jlo (Zarine Khan) & Jai is in love with Parul (Shazahn Padasee). So the tension and confusion and different Jolly to different people and how all of them come together in the end for a super cool climax is what the whole story is about.
The 1st half of the movie is bit slow as it takes some long time to introduce all the characters (Kitne sarey log hai yaar ). However, once the plot is introduce properly, the story really takes you on a good comic ride. The confusion plot of the real jolly and especially the times when 2 characters come together when jolly is called is something which I am sure only Sajid Khan can think of. Hats off for the super confusion created and portrayed on screen. Certain scenes have lost all the parameters of logics but you still enjoy that. The scenes where Akki & Ritesh are stuck in a room with an alligator & shreyas and john with a anaconda is one of the best comic scenes in the movie. But for a low start movie like this, needs a power pack climax, which is the best in this one. The climax has been the most hilarious part and I can bet, you will be on your edge of the seat while watching it.
The music is good. The songs have been popular across the country. Sajid – wajid (maa kasam kitne Sajid hai iss movie main ) good job as music director. Papa toh band Bajayega (The Indian version of “We don’t speak Americano”) and Right Now Now are peppy numbers and people seem to be enjoying that even in cinema hall. Anarkali Disco chali was a disappointment (Maza nai aya bhai L )
This movie has long list of characters but it is not practically possible to give each of them a good footage.
Akshay Kumar – Good in the 2nd half, with his Ranjeet style (simply amazing) but low and overdone at some places.
John Abraham – Very average performance (Kuch Khas Maza Nai aya )
Ritesh Deshmukh – Thank you sajid for casting him in the perfect role. He takes off humor very good. He is really funny in the scene when he and Akki are stuck in a room with an alligator (A must watch scene)
Shreyas Talpade – Really confusing. Excepts for few punch lines, shreyas had no work in the movie.
The female lead – Asin, Jacqueline, Zarine, Shazahn – very average performance . Ok Ok types.
Rishi Kapoor,Randhir Kapoor & Mithun da – Good but overdone at many scenes in the movie.
Jhonny Lever – The only person who has pulled the entire climax on his shoulders. He has been the most entertaining part of the movie. No one could ever beat his comic timings and expression. Hats off to this comedy king.
Boman Irani – He is for a very less time in the movie. But the character of Batookbhai Patel which he plays is really funny and has done full justice to it.
How can I forget – Akhri Pasta played by Chunky pandey. By far I remember very few characters which chunky have played in his career and Akhri Pasta will be topping the list. Trust me worth a watch to see some more of Chunky in the movie.
The ultimate salute to Ranjeet (Yes, ahhh!!! The daddy of shakti kapoor in thurkypana and the person with a highest record of rape on screen ) He has made a cameo in the movie, but the scene reminds you of all his old movies where he is shown in the negative shade. (I still can’t fucking believe, the crowd went crazy when he just appeared on the screen and everyone was just doing ahhhhh!!!! )
So overall, housefull 2 is a good, humorous and entertaining movie with lots and lots of stupidity and non-sense comedy where you don’t need to use your brains. Just watch it with your friends and family and have a good time.
Dhinchak Mumbai will rate it 3 stars out of 5 and a big hug to both the Sajid for bringing back the Legend – RANJEET on screen (cameo ke liye hi sahi) .
