When I first saw the movie, I thought that the cast is superb. I mean you don’t expect much from the movie; it doesn’t talk about any social problems in India or change your life but it is kind of fun to watch Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Ritesh Deshmukh together with the girls Asin and Jacqueline Fernandez.
This is a classical Bollywood comedy, no doubt… We know most of the cast from other movies. It starts in a circus, 2 cousins fighting each other over animal rights. After that, we learn the families of the girls also fight because their fathers, Chintu and Dabboo are step-brothers and both are not happy about the situation. They live next to each other and keep fighting in every possible occasion.
They take the fight to a different level when the fathers want to find the richest husband for their daughters. They work with the same marriage counsellor and the counsellor finds Jai (Shreyas Talpade) for Chintu’s daughter. While Jai’s ill father and mother visit the family to talk about the marriage, Chintu interprets something wrong and starts shouting. This makes Jai’s father very ill, he ends up in hospital. Jai learns what happened and he decides to get revenge of his father. And the story starts then…
One thing leads to another and things get so complicated to tell here in details. So if you are so determined about reading the full plot, click the Wikipedia link below because I won’t be able to tell it… It is basically a situation comedy, quite simple in terms of jokes, plot and characters but I enjoyed watching it.
The flighting scenes are so long. I usually like watching them and maybe it is what Bollywood fans ask for but these were still a bit too long for a reasonable attention span…
Also the ending gets too long, at one point you forget that you watched a 2-hour part already and they have to sum up eventually.
In general, as you can guess, Housefull 2 is not a movie to archive but it is still fun to watch. Especially if you thought you liked the previous comedy movies of Akshay Kumar, John Abraham or Ritesh Deshmukh, you won’t be disappointed.
