HOUSEFULL 2 Has Huge Sunday

 

Monday 9th April 2012 10.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network

 

Housefull 2 has done very well on Sunday as the families came out in a big way. The film has grossed around 16 crore nett on Sunday as per early estimates. The films that cater to family audiences always tend to show bigger jumps on Sunday be it Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi or Ready and now Housefull 2.

 

The IPL has affected collections like the first two days in various circuits but the film is still coming out with strong numbers.

 

The jump on Sunday was huge in places like Gujarat where clean fun comedies tend to outperform. A city like Surat collected 25 lakhs each on its first two days while on Sunday collections went towards 40 lakhs. The Mumbai circuit figure for Sunday is likely to come out in the 6 crore nett region.

Subhash K. Jha speaks about Housefull 2
By Subhash K. Jha, Apr 7, 2012 - 11:34 IST

Housefull 2 Gags galore. Laughs? Well, not as many as you'd expect in a 180-minute marathon mirth machine. Somehow the jokes get choked in the comic ritual of repetition. Once you figure out who's who and who's ha-ha in the farce fest, the attempts to cram as many characters into every frame as humanly possible begins to take its toll on the comic equilibrium of this tale of intermittent titters and some genuine laughs.

So what's Housefull 2 about? Wrong question. Beyond a point, it's only about keeping the embers of satire alive by hook or by over-cook. Somewhere down line the witticism wears thin. But there are comic actors of terrific aptitude holding aloft the thinner segments in the farcical fabric.

Just look at the lineup. Real-life brothers Randhir and Rishi Kapoor on screen for the first time together. Wow wee! Each time they appear on screen the theme from Raj Kapoor's cinema plays slyly in the background. As brothers turned enemies sharing a wall of history in 'Great' Britain, the Kapoor brothers take much longer to thaw and embrace one another than the other actors.

The plot is propelled forward by pairs of hostile actors who come together by the mid-point...Asin and Jacqueline playing blathering bimbos, who also happen to be warring cousins, seem to find no pleasure in their characters beyond swooning in their screen-lover's arms once too often. Akshay Kumar and John Abraham (the former getting the comic timing right, the latter trying so hard the effort shows) hate one another because at their college dance John caught his girlfriend with Akshay in the closet.

Once out of the closet the fun quotient never really stops for Akshay. He is in his rogue's element running helter-skelter between dacoit turned English aristocrat Mithun Chakraborty and his Man Friday Johnny Lever.

Housefull 2 The male actors get the sur of the steep satire right .But the ladies, they're a little lost in the melee of mirth. Asin who has the meatiest role among the girls listless. Making 25 faces in every frame doesn't constitute money's worth acing.

Sajid Khan shoots the ladies in exotic locations. The camera is never voyeuristic. The mood is often slapstick. But the gags never cross the limits of vulgarity. The verbal exchanges are largely free of double meanings. Yup, this comedy could be watched by the family without the dialogue writing band-bajaoing Papa and Mama's censorial rules.

It is interesting to see how Sajid Khan employs old traditional Bollywood conventions, like a flashback where two friends swear to give away one another's kids in marriage when the time is right, and an incredibly lengthy and pointless fight sequence where Dara Singh's son Vindoo jumps out of a wheelchair and gets beaten up by our bunch of belligerent heroes.

Such archaic formula-baazi is synthesized with more contemporary concepts of cinematic entertainment. All in all you come away from Housefull 2 with a feeling that the vast cast seems to get the mood of riotous fun. They seem to have such fun that the audience can't help getting infected by their non-stop party mood.

Housefull 2 takes the comic vein further than the first Housefull film. Sajid's plot; characters and situations keep the chuckle fest vibrant and alive till the end. This is at times a wicked and funny farce with sparkling comic talent displayed by every male actor.
