With Housefull 2, you get what you expect. You would have seen the trailers, the previous film (Housefull) and you also know what to expect from Sajid Khan. If a loud slapstick comedy, without an iota of sense or logic isn’t your cup of tea, stay far away from Housefull 2. Oh and don’t bother reading this review either.
But the fact that Housefull was one of the biggest grossers of 2010, most certainly means, there is a huge audience for such films in India. Continuing the successful franchisee, director Sajid Khan has included more than 12 actors in Housefull 2. Does it offer double entertainment?
Housefull 2 Review
The whole point here is to keep you entertained for the film’s 150 minute odd duration and Sajid Khan does exactly that. Filled with hilarious sequences, right from Akshay Kumar’s introduction to the last wedding scene, Housefull 2 delivers unlimited laughs. The story and the situations that the characters find themselves in, has plenty of scope for comedy and Sajid Khan exploits it to the fullest.
While some scenes like those involving the crocodile and snake, were way too over-the-top, action scenes seem to have been forced into the narrative.
The music by Sajid-Wajid is good, Papa Toh Band Bajaye is catchy and easily the film’s best song. Farah Khan’s choreography is decent, but Anarkali Disco Chali is unlikely to come close to Munni Badnaam Hui popularity-wise. Cinematography by Manoj Soni is commendable.
Housefull 2 Performances
Amidst all the madness and confusion, it’s the performances that make mediocre sequences funny. Akshay Kumar stands out with a fantastic performance. His comic timing is the best, followed closely by Ritesh Deshmukh.
John Abraham, for a change, manages to express. He doesn’t get his expressions right in a few scenes, but delivers a reasonably good performance. Shreyas Talpade doesn’t get the best of lines. It was nice to see Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor sharing screen-space for the first time, they manage to entertain. As Jagga Daaku, Mithun Chakraborty is brilliant. Chunky Pandey as Pasta is funny. Johhny Lever is okay.
The girls sizzle on-screen, but have very little to do except to look at their glamorous best.
Overall, we liked Housefull 2 more than the first film in the series. The film has plenty of laughs, some good performances and keeps you entertained from start to finish. Go for it.
single screen sucks
3&1/2 stars indicine what have happened to you you gave agneepath the same stars
giving it three and half stars is not permissionable indicine how could you say its a good movie
Bandit, found it pretty entertaining. You can’t compare Agneepath and this. Both very different films.

its not equal to agneepath indicine this is not good you are behaving like akshay agents
common man cinema sucks a big time
you gave don2 only four so you think don2 was just good than this movie why indicine agneepath should get 4 stars at least
if don2 gets four stars it should get 2 stars really indicine once gave kurbaan 4.5 stars what is going on indicine
akshay kumar good in his role but this movie does not really should get such a high rating its pretty bad indicine
