Housefull Review

Powered by: Chakpak.com House Full

The makers of Heyy Babyy brought us Housefull. Ritesh Deshmukh, Akshay Kumar, and Boman Irani are together again! The story is of a man, Akshay Kumar, who is unlucky for everyone he is around, including himself. He was once told though that his kundali says that his bad luck will end once he marries the girl he loves. No girl he meets really loves him back enough to marry him though, until he meets Deepika Padukone. Ritesh Deshmukh plays Akshay Kumar's best friend, who always accepts Akshay Kumar's bad luck in a positive manner. Lara Dutta plays Ritesh's wife.

On the whole, this was a funny movie with lots of flaws. Many scenes were just unreasonable. The acting was decent for the most part. Akshay, Ritesh, Lara, Arjun, and Boman were good as usual, but the younger actresses were iffy. Deepika definitely acted better here than she did before. Her face actually showed expressions for once! She even looked better in most scenes. She did overact in many scenes, but it was better than the incredible underacting she had been ding up until this point.

Now the following contains spoilers.
When Akshay Kumar goes to London to stay with Ritesh and Lara, they introduce him to their boss, Randhir Kapoor, who decides that he will have his daughter (Jiah Khan) married to Akshay. Akshay and Jiah both agree t this, and get married. They go to Italy for their honeymoon, where Akshay finds out that Jiah has a boyfriend. First off, who gets his daughter married off just like that? And secondly, after Akshay finds out, he says it's okay?!?! I will say though that Jiah Khan looked a lot better here than she did in Ghajini (I didn't dare or care to watch Nishabd). Her role was really small, but after the whole her having a boyfriend and Akshay having a girlfriend (Deepika), Akshay and her met up like friends, which was totally weird.
Deepika initially slapped Akshay for trying to kiss her while she was performing CPR, but when she found out his wife was dead (a lie by the owner of the hotel in Italy), she felt bad for him and went out with him.
Arjun Rampal plays the head of Indian Military Intelligence, and yet cannot tell that a novice liar is lying straight to his face. Doesn't sound too right. Especially considering this novice liar has horrible luck...
The laughing gas scene at the end was not needed. It was an attempt to bring some humor by using the comedy icons Santa-Banta, but it yielded few laughs (for the viewers).

But apart from the nonsensical scenes, the movie was very enjoyable. I laughed out loud on more than one occasion. For example, the Dostana scenes were pretty funny, and although they have been done too many times, they were very Kantaben-like. In fact, Kantaben was Gujju, and so was Boman Irani (the man who "witnessed" these "Dostana" scenes). Many other scenes were too!

I'd say that if you enjoyed Heyy Babyy and Kabakht Ishq type nonsensical comedies or if you are in the mood for not using your mind and just relaxing, check this one out.
