    Housefull rating: 7 out of 10(Divya Solgama wrote on 30 Apr 2010)

    Thanks to IPL matches we movie lovers had to suffer through dozens of bad films. Thus were waiting for an out and out entertainer with good star cast.'Housefull' breaks the fast [of bad films] as it contains big star cast and a big banner. But is this enough to get the box office see the housefull boards which seemed be forgotten in some store room and not used for a long long time. Let’s find out.

    'housefull' is story of a jinxed looser aarush [akshay kumar] who looses his love [mallaika arora] too, due to his ill luck.he decides to meet his old buddy bob [ritesh deshmukh] who lives with his wife hetal [lara dutt ] and works in a casino owned by kishor samtani [randhir kapoor]. Kishore gets aarush married to his daughter devika [jiah khan]. But on wedding night she dumps aarush for someone else. Thus aarush decides to kill himself, but again luck ditches him as he is saved by sandy [deepika]. Both falls in love and waits for Sandy’s brother's [arjun rampal] approval. But again fate has a different tale to tell. And that’s what the movie is about.

    Story is simple and has some shades of few Hollywood films, but then quite different in its own way too. screen play is slow But has some superb scenes like Akki's entry, ritesn-lara anniversary night with rajendranath touch, electric shock dance, tiger scene, bomans phone message-beep pachi bako, chunky's aakhri pasta-i am joking, boman meets baby, push ups scenes, akki meeting arjun, boman watches akki-rd everywhere , lie detector, etc. But on flip side the films pace is slow, loads of unnecessary skin show, the whole monkey slapping stuff and a weak climax. Camera work is fine.

    Music wise o girl, papa and i don’t know what to do rocks. Looser song irritates after a while and apni to jaise taise misses the magic.

    Sajid's last work had inspiration from Hollywood as well as Hindi films. The result was satisfying. Thus the expectations were high and he does reach to the level to a certain extent. But sadly the treatment of film is too slow after a hilarious scene the falls flat for some time and thus the persistency drops. He has managed to make us laugh in many places and deserves a pat on back. But messes up in climax which was weak and loud. Said please us your movie senses and don’t compromise in such manner.

    Akshay as a looser was sweet and managed to entertain us in loads of scenes. Ritesh too rocks, especially in all those gay scenes. Arjun reminded of arbaaz khan of pyar kiya to darna kya and does a fine job. Deepika , lara and jiah had a rat race of who does the most skin show. Boman irani is simply superb. Lillette, chunky and randhir gives good support.

    So bol meri 'filmi khopdi' is film mein kitna hai dum.

    dum hain, kaafi scenes hilarious bhi hain. The film satisfies your hunger of watching an entertainer to certain extent. Sadly the weak climax and slow treatment of the film manages to spoil the fun. Well we will enjoy the movie but will forget it also after a while, but aapka kya hoga 'sajid khan' as you Need to work out more to make a complete housefull and not half full.

    Ratings : 3.25/5
