Sajid Khan is back with his trademark brain dead comedy genre in his sequel to 2010 super hit movie Housefull. The movie was panned by critics that includes yours critically but it reaped a bumper box office collections. And in the sequel Sajid Khan promises more madness and hillarious, low IQ entertainment. This time though, Akshay and Ritesh are joined by more than one dozen co-actors. So we have John Abraham, Shreyas Talapad, Asin, Jacqueline, Zarine khan, Shazhan Padamsee and veteran actors Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty and add to the list Johnny lever. If this list is not exhaustive, you also have Randhir Kapoor, Bomman Irani and Chunky Pandey all three who were also in the earlier Housefull. Remember? Aakhri Pasta … I am just joking!!! You have it here too!
However you choose to call comedy of errors, comedy of confusion, comedy of stupidity, comedy of idiocracy, comedy of goofups, comedy of lame jokes – Housefull 2 does manage to entertain in larger part provided you throw out all your logical minds and just, sit, relax and laugh out at the antics, bafoonery and stupidity all the characters engagingly enact and the funny dialogues lavishly thrown at.
Plot or no plot is a noodle of jolly(s) with each father of the brides thinking their would be son-in-law is the Jolly, the son of multi billionaire, JD (Mithun Chakraborty) who has his own mad flashback as Jagga Daaku, once upon a time bandit. The confusion is masterminded by Sunny (Akshay Kumar), who schemes a plot to take vengeance at Chintu (Rishi kapoor), a money obsessed father who insults Sunny’s friend, Jai’s father. Together with the other friends the real Jolly (Ritesh Deshmukh) and Max (John Abraham) they land up in a comedy of confusions with the father of brides thinking each of their to be son-in-laws as Jolly. Ok, to reveal the plot itself would be a comedy of confusions and would require a comedy of a idiocratic review, that I would rather allow you to watch than read.
A comedy movie needs good songs to keep the momentum going and music directors Sajid- Wajid takes the credit for the chart toppers Anarkali disco chali and Pappa toh band bajaayei.
GingerChai verdict: Housefull 2 is more entertaining than the earlier one and Sajid Khan delivers exactly what he promised – entertainment, entertainment and entertainment though this one had loads of madness and stupidity written all over it. If you can give your critical mind a rest, you can be assured of a good dose of laughter riot of a low IQ. With the stressful life we all live, it comes a welcome change. You can laught out once this weekend.
