wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
Housefull 2 is nothing more and nothing less that what you'd expect from it. you know the director and his genre, so you know how you'll like the film. I was a tiny bit surprised with the momentum maintained in the chaos. But an 'aah...interesting' kind of a surprise doesn't necessarily make it a fun experience.Read more
After the initial shock of the intense trauma Housefull 2 promises to be, the logistical organizer in me was in awe of the scheduling nightmare that it must've been to shoot. The lead protagonist is a dirty dozen.
Akshay Kumar, Asin, Rishi Kapoor
John Abraham, Jacquline Fernandez, Randhir Kapoor
Shreyas Talpade, Shazahn Padamsee, Boman Irani
Riteish Deshmukh, Zarine Khan, Mithun Chakrovarty
Wait, it ain't over yet. There's support from cast like, Chunkey Pandey, Johnny Lever, and two reptiles called Fifi and Nagraaj. Check out the last 45 seconds of this trailer if you don't believe me. Then there's the item number byMalaika Arora. And I read at various places Rani Mukherjee and Karishma Kapoor, hopefully, they are just names that might have been considered before the final decision.
Now get this! I also came across Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina making special appearances in the film. Yep! You read that right! And I swallowed a tear of sorrow. Let's hope this is all one big rumor.
It'd be only foolish of me to expect any form of coherent story or characterization in this chaos. I must confess that I do remember sort-of enjoying some moments from Housefull. But, I'm not sure I would want to endure Housefull 2 from what it shows in its trailers. The music though seems to be just alright given the genre. The rest we shall see, soon enough.
Sajid\-\Wajid\/" target="_blank" rel="no follow">Milliblog - "Three out of four songs deliver in Housefull 2 and that’s an achievement!"
Music Aloud - "6/10"
dunkdaft - "Just like the first part, the sequel of Housefull doesn't offer much in terms of eargasm"
Bollyspice - "3/5"
Bollywood Hungama - "3.5/5"
Happy Sing - "Though Sajid-Wajid being roped in instead of SEL is a strange surprise, the duo have added elements of surprise from their end and kept things quite balanced."

It's difficult to call the makers of Housefull 2 mindless or unintelligent. There's no way someone can make something so silly and not know it. It requires a high level of awareness to write and make a film so profoundly senseless. And from the manner in which the entire audience was laughing it looks like they have done their homework on what the 'first day first show' audience enjoys. Of course, none of this newfound admiration converts me into that part of the audience that enjoys such humor.
Given how little typical slapstick makes me laugh, it was almost a miracle that I laughed hard at a couple of the 'repeat phrase/expression' assigned to a couple of characters. And of course, they had to go ahead and spoil it by repeating it, for what feels like, a few hundred times! And that's the problem with films like these. They don't know where to stop, neither with their specific jokes nor the film itself.
It's high time, we make it mandatory for writers to spend a year just on the climax. The utter tomfoolery in the last 20-30 minutes makes you want to bang your head on a wall harder than you were doing thus far. What with one of the worst opening sequences ever.
Yet, a part of me is in awe of the writer's capacity to keep the utter chaos amongst twelve lead characters at a peak through most of the film. Of course again, I didn't enjoy the chaos but I certainly couldn't stop admiring how the writers seemed to have the story straight in their head amidst absolute commotion.
The writing also attempts at a wide range of tools to create humor - from puns to rhymes to toilet humor to sexual jokes to sarcasm to 'pet phrases/expressions' to mimicry to what-say-you. Some work, most don't. Almost all repeat.
Also, for a change I enjoyed Akshay Kumar and John Abraham's comic timing. Before it became repetitive. Amongst the women Asin gets a teeny-weeny bit to display her ability to make people laugh. While Riteish Deshmukh and Shreyas Talpade have as banal and inconsequential roles as the rest of the women, they at least are not insulted for being the gender they belong to. Please appreciate the amount of control I've maintained in not going all out and on and on about how ridiculously stupid ALL the women in the film are. Also, the lesser I say about the veterans the quicker I'll be able to forget how insulted I felt by watching them in such menial roles.
Housefull 2 is one of those rare films where I looked forward to the song breaks - nice, colorful, well-dressed good-looking people. That just about describes Housefull 2 in its entirety except that the film has some not-so-good-looking people too.
Housefull 2 made me want to experience what it is the writers were having when they wrote it. Worry not, just as an experiment, one should know what it feels like, no?

Thumbs down, by Danish Bagdadi, Desi Martini : ...The movie follows the formula set in motion by the first film and is packed to the brim with mistaken identities, Indians living in London, raunchy dance numbers, inane dialogues and every possible form of buffoonery that Sajid Khans brain can conceive.... full review
Thumbs down, by Deepa Gahlot, Film Impressions : ...But if audiences just want a few giggles—and it’s their money after all—Housefull 2 serves the purpose.
