The comedies of yesteryears are unmatchable. Our cinema has changed drastically, affecting our expectations and choices as well. Today we expect the jhatka-matkas, item songs and opulence as opposed to a charming entertainer. Sajid Khan attempts to meld the two in his latest release ‘Housefull‘.

Aarush (Akshay Kumar) is defined by his affinity for the worst possible. All his attempts at a better life fail miserably. Counseled by his friend Bob (Riteish Deshmukh) and his wife Hetal (Lara Dutta), he marries their boss’s daughter (Jiah Khan) as a shot at a better life. An unpredictable twist turns the situation around leading to Sandy (Deepika Padukone) saving Aarush’s life.

In true Bollywood manner they fall in love. Everything is peachy until two terrifying guests land up. Hetal’s loud Gujrati father (Boman Irani) and Sandy’s intimidating brother Krishna (Arjun Rampal). Thats not even the beginning of the terror. As cock-and-bull stories are hurled around like a football, to escape deadly consequences, relationships are juggled with impressive efficiency.

It’s a first class khichdi but you can trace the original ingredients. The story doesn’t merely jump randomly to scenes. There is a method to the madness. While Akshay expresses all his emotions with pretty much the same expression, Riteish does a great job of carrying the jokes. Characters like Lillete Dubey and Boman Irani keep the fun alive and Arjun Rampal is surprisingly adept at the job.

Not much can be said about the songs other than mentioning the beautiful locations and of course the gorgeous women who are good as just that. As usual Deepika gives no reason to complain but she does seem a bit misplaced in this genre. Lara is better in this area of acting with the exaggerated faces and silly giggles.

The movie won’t have you rolling on the floor but is mildly amusing. There are dips in the laughter graph, but then the peaks are hilarious. Old jokes have been attempted to be portrayed in a new way and it works! The masses will absolutely love it.

It’s not a full-on comedy but it isn’t mindless.

    We were interested in a light movie for a Tuesday weeknight. This was the perfect choice, the comic acts were hilarious – sure we could have had more of the moments, but overall it was a very humorous movie. Why are people critical of comedy, I fail to understand, this is how slapstick movies are supposed to be anyway. A good watch.
