Editor Review: Housefull 2 Movie Review
Housefull 2 is better than the prequel. However, that is not saying much, as Housefull was utter nonsense. Only the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz would enjoy this brainless comedy. Rating: **
Read Full Editor Review...

Housefull was a surprising hit. Despite being a bad film, the audiences appreciated the brainless humor. Sajid Khan is banking on the same to happen with Housefull 2. This time, he has a star cast that would even put Sooraj Barjatiya to shame. The makers have already been clear of the fact that to enjoy the film, one has to leave their brains at home. Sadly, such films become hits in India and good comedy films sink at the box-office. Hopefully, this film is better than Sajid' s previous outing. Let' s see if we can make sense of this plot.

The story begins with the rivalry between two step brothers; Daboo (Randhir Kapoor) and Chintu Kapoor (Rishi Kapoor). This rivalry carries on to the next generation as well as their daughters, Bobby (Jacqueline Fernandez) and Heena (Asin) hate each other to the core. In bid to be get one up on each other, Daboo and Chintu want their daughters to marry in the richest families in London. They both assign the help of marriage counselor, Aakhri Pasta (Chunky Pandey).

Pasta finds a good match for Chintu' s daughter. His name is Jai (Shreyas Talpade) and his father goes to meet Chintu Kapoor. Chintu, however, insults him and he ends up in the hospital. Jai plans revenge on Chintu Kapoor and takes the help of friend, Jolly (Riteish Deshmukh). Jolly is the son of JD (Mithun Chakraborthy), who is one of the richest people in London. They both hire a college friend and a con-artist Max (John Abraham) to cheat Chintu Kapoor. Max pretends to be Jolly, but lands up in the house of Daboo Kapoor. Therefore, they pick Sunny (Akshay Kumar), another college friend and send him to Chintu Kapoor as Jolly.

Both Chintu and Daboo like their respective Jollys, but their daughters are yet to like them. Meanwhile, the real Jolly' s girlfriend (Zarine Khan) is eager to marry him. Thus ensues a pandemonium.

Well, this is the story. If you could actually call it a story! It seems more like all the characters and circumstances have been forcefully joined together. The screenwriters have tried to be like the writers of Seinfeld and join all the plots together, but they are nowhere near as funny or sophisticated. Sajid Khan is one of the writers of the film. There was a time when he was actually funny, but his sense humor has successfully dismissed the theory of evolution. His sense of humor has drastically de-evolved.

His direction is not that great either. The female leads of the film look no more than pretty mannequins in skimpy outfits. For the men, it looks like he was giving direction only to Akshay Kumar, the rest of the cast was given a free rein to whatever the hell they want. Sajid also has to be blamed for the loud background score, which actually makes some of the dialogues impossible to hear.

Akshay Kumar is at ease in such roles, but one wonders how long can he keep doing such work. There was a time when Akshay alone could ensure hits of such no-brainer films, but the audience got tired of it and pulled the rug from beneath his feet. Therefore, now he needs a posse of other actors around him in such films. Despite this, he has done a decent job.

Too many cooks spoil the food. This saying is true when you look at the number of actors that are present in the film. There are so many in number that it is even difficult to asses how terrible a job each one has done. The senior actors like Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Da, and Boman Irani are completely wasted. The actresses move their bodies a lot more than their facial muscles. That is all that can be deciphered from the performances.

The music is bad. Other than "Papa to band bajaye", no other song has been a hit. The background score is also very loud. The production value is good. Sajid Nadiadwala never holds back in any of his films.

People who are looking for a good comedy film should skip Housefull 2. People wanting to just sit there and not use their intelligence should definitely watch this film. To you, it just might be the greatest film ever made. Sajid Khan has promoted this film really well. He is second only to Shahrukh Khan when it comes to speaking about his films. Therefore, it will bring a sizable audience for the opening weekend.

Rating: **

Verdict: Housefull 2 might get a few housefull shows in the beginning, but the numbers are sure to decline in the upcoming weeks.
