Housefull 2 is the story of four fathers, four daughters and four prospective son-in-laws and as the second half of the tile suggests, they are the dirty dozen. Housefull 2 belongs to the same school of zany comedies that gave us fantastic movies ‘No Entry’, ‘Welcome’, the ‘Golmaal’ series and ‘Ready’.
Eros International and Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment’s Housefull 2 is a comedy about how four friends get married to four different girls. None of the girls from the previous outing have been retained. While Riteish Deskmukh and Akshay Kumar along with Boman Irani are still there, Shazahn Padamsee, Zareen Khan and Asin come in for Lara Dutta, Jiah Khan and Deepika Padukone. For novelty sake there’s Rishi and Randhir Kapoor and also Mithun Chakraborty. Chunky Pandey manages to hold on to his spot as Aakhri Pasta, while John Abraham and Shreyas Talpade give Riteish and Akshay company.
The music of Houseful 2 has been created keeping in mind the theme of the movie. ‘Papa To Band Bajaye’ is already popular and so are ‘Right Now’ and ‘Anarkali’. The cinematography is conventionally appealing.

Akshay Kumar is in form this time. He wows with his performance as Sunny and beings a smile to the audience’s lips as he reprises the cunning and wicked ways one remembers him for. John Abraham is plastic in most scenes but makes a spirited effort. Ritesh Deshmukh does a fine job as Jolly. Shreyas Talpade is alright as Jai. Of all the girls, Asin and Jacqueline Fernandez get the meatiest of roles and they do not disappoint. Shazahn Padamsee and Zarine Khan add glam value.
On the whole, ‘Housefull 2’ is a madcap entertainer that gets the viewer giggling, yelling, whistling and applauding in his seat and you completely savor the fact that the spectators parked around you too are utterly engaged in the chaos and seeking maximum pleasure from the on-screen happenings. If you are a moviegoer who derives pleasure from loud comedies with over-the-top humor that defy logic at every opportunity, we are sure, you will relish this wacky slapstick. If your idea of watching a comedy is to have a good time at the movies, then ‘Housefull 2’ is especially designed for you.
