After being copying from one very famous English film, sorry, after being inspired from one Hollywood film, Sajid Khan came up with another inspiring one to us after Hey Baby! Though no doubt Hey Bay was a good movie to watch, but still it’s not an original one, but that can be neglected in that film but not in this film. Although I am not sure that the entire film is being copied or inspired but almost 75% of the scenes in this film were being copied from many other Hollywood films. Anyways, it all depends on how you present it, whether it is being copied, inspired or original; the main fulfillment is nothing but the purely entertainment.
Same as again which we have seen in many comedies film like chaos, confusion, slapstick, double meaning jokes, tragedy becomes comedy formula, and etc. But still as I said, presenting it is very important.
Akshay Kumar believes with himself that he is the most unlucky person in the whole world. Like we have seen Bhaskar played by Govinda in Partner. Akshay was having his girlfriend Malaika Arora, but she left him. Feeling sadly he went to his best friend’s house, Ritesh Deshmukh who was living with her wife played by Lara Dutta. Now they both had matched up a relationship with a girl name Devika (daughter of Randhir Kapoor, a multi millionaire and boss of Ritesh and Lara) as an arrange marriage with Akshay. But after the next day of wedding, she also ditched Akshay as she was in love with someone else and has only married to Akshay to gain the property from his dad. Now again sadly Akshay went to commit suicide but now one beautiful came, Deepika Padukone, and saved his life. After then they both fell in love and story continues.
This is the just long, boring and predicted first half. What actually fun begins is from the second half, thanks to god. Deepika’s brother as Arjun Rampal came at their place t select Akshay for his sister, and unluckily Arjun Rampal is also the brother of Malaika Arora, who was Akshay’s ex. And on this side, Bomen Irani came to see her daughter (Lara dutta) after a long time, but he never met and never saw also his son in law because he was very upset with her daughter that she did a love marriage and that too by running away. Now the confusion gets even bigger when Bomen understands Akshay as his son in law.
Now this whole second half creates more confusion, more chaos, more double meaning jokes, and this result, a nice piece of entertain package.
Movie can’t be declared as full of entertaining or with lots of entertainment, but surely can be said as good piece with upto the mark. There were many-many loop holes in the story as well in the screenplay of the film, especially during in the first half, which I believe was very boring, predicted, and senseless.
And as from inspired point of view, I think Sajid should give us more original and natural comedies. Or else if it is being copied and should be presented very-very-very efficiently and not just to be put like drag and drop directly system.
Direction by Sajid was good, but was also very-very bad. There were many-many out-sync shots. Out-sync means audio and video were not matching, the lip-movement when saying dialogues were not matching. This is a very-very bad sign for the director as well as for the editor.
I think there is no need to comment on the performances, as I guess everybody here are well professionalized, very much famous in their field, also played their characters very efficiently. So I guess there is no need to be rate any actor or actresses in this film. But just a small note here, that Jiah Khan here performed well surprisingly, though not fully, but surely she was much better here than before.
Music was good, at par, scenarios and shooting locations were beautifully picturized, and rests of the technicalities were average on his job.
Housefull was so-so copy full, so-so dabba gull, but also so-so full of entertainment.
Just average – 2.5 / 5
