Ribtickling chavanni chhaap dialogues by Sajid-Farhad, lots of laugh-out-worthy comic situations, fun song n dance routines (Pappa and Anarkali got whistles in the cinema hall where I watched the film) and a super ode to yester year baddie Ranjeet makes Housefull 2 an enjoyable watch. Akshay is in good form but its John Abraham who pulls up a pleasant comic surprise. Heroines are props with a limited scope (Only Asin makes her presence felt in this housefull of men). Johney Lever is a delight. Chunkey Pandey is good too. Rishi-Randhir are a treat. On the flip side, the duration is too long, the racist and botox jokes are out of place. Housefull 2 is a way better entertainer than Housefull. If you enjoy mindless, unpretentious entertainment then don't miss Housefull 2. Star Rating *** 1/2 stars.
Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra's Ishaqzaade has been preponed to May 11.
Amongst the new promos, Department looks interesting and so does Shanghai. In fact Shanghai seems to be passing a statement on the politics of the country in the last few years. Emraan is experimenting with his look. Dangerous Ishq promo was special for me only because of Karisma Kapoor. The reincarnation theme doesn't seem too interesting to me but Karisma seems to be back with a steely resolve. I have never interviewed her, but I guess it should happen soon. Looking forward for sure.
