Post HERA PHERI , Priyadarshan had turn out to be a drive to reckon with in Bollywood. His comedian capers have a whole lot of characters and subplots but in addition tons of humour and it is no surprise that he developed a powerful fan following. After staying away from Bollywood for round 8 years, the grasp director is again with HUNGAMA 2. The first half, launched in 2003, was a laugh-a-minute riot and is remembered fondly even at this time. Does HUNGAMA 2 emerge as humorous as or higher than half 1? Or does it fail to impress? Let’s analyse.
HUNGAMA 2 is the story of a person in bother after his ex-flame arrives at his home and causes ‘hungama’. Akash Kapoor (Meezaan Jafri) stays together with his father, Colonel Kapoor (Ashutosh Rana), sister, his brother’s youngsters and a butler, Nandan (Tiku Talsania). He works in an workplace and his colleague is Anjali (Shilpa Shetty Kundra), a household buddy. She is married to Radhe Shyam Tiwari (Paresh Rawal), a good-for-nothing advocate who’s at all times suspicious that Anjali is dishonest on him. Akash is about to get married to a woman named Simran, daughter of M G Bajaj (Manoj Joshi), a buddy of Kapoor. All goes effectively for Akash till someday, his ex-girlfriend, Vaani (Pranitha Subhash) arrives at his residence along with her daughter, Gehna. She claims that Akash impregnated her once they had been relationship and learning in school after which ran away. Akash, at first, refuses to even settle for that he is aware of Vaani. But later, he admits that they had been in a relationship. But he assures Colonel Kapoor that Gehna just isn’t his daughter. Kapoor doesn’t know whom to consider. The DNA check is completed which proves that Akash is the daddy. Kapoor is devastated since Akash’s engagement with Simran is mounted. He retains Vaani hidden from Bakshi and everybody else until he finds out the reality. Akash, in the meantime, nonetheless claims that he’s not the daddy and he approaches Anjali for assist. Anjali meets Kapoor to debate the matter. Kapoor requests Anjali to not reveal about Vaani and Gehna to anybody, not even Radhe. She agrees. When she goes residence, she lies when Radhe asks the place she had gone. Radhe then begins to comply with her secretly and overhears her dialog with Akash. Both are discussing about being pregnant and a child. Radhe assumes that Anjali is pregnant with Akash’s little one. What occurs subsequent varieties the remainder of the movie.
Priyadarshan’s story is promising and has all of the components of a strong, complicated entertainer that he’s well-known for. But Yunus Sajawal’s screenplay spoils the present. The narrative is in all places. There are too many characters and subplots and should not stitched collectively effectively. Also, logic takes a backseat. This normally occurs in comedy movies however right here, it reaches unbelievable ranges. Manisha Korde and Anukalp Goswami’s dialogues attempt their greatest to contribute humour and drama however it’s not upto the specified degree.
Priyadarshan’s route is common. He’s laced with a poor script and that additional diminishes the influence. In the previous, he has exceled with comedies the place there are far too many characters and misunderstandings. How he used to handle to easily execute the insanity regardless of challenges was his USP. The filmmaker tries to duplicate his method however doesn’t succeed. The primary plot is such that the movie might have been humorous from begin to end. But the humour may be very weak and in addition the humorous conditions are few and much between. He doesn’t even do justice to a few of the subplots. Even the reply to the thriller behind the sudden look of Vaani on the Kapoor household’s residence is foolish. On the optimistic, a number of scenes right here and there do handle to lift laughs however clearly it’s not sufficient.

HUNGAMA 2 begins on a uninteresting and critical notice. The monitor of Gagan Chandra D’costa (Johny Lever) and that of the children does increase a number of laughs. But the children then disappear and re-emerge solely within the second half. This makes it clear that issues are going to occur at random within the movie. Just a few scenes that stand out and are literally humorous are Nandan discussing the contents of the DNA report and Popat Jamal (Rajpal Yadav) claiming to be Vaani’s husband. Popat additionally single-handedly contributes to the humour within the climax. But as talked about earlier than, it was not sufficient. Ideally, the entire movie ought to have been hilarious, similar to the primary half.
Meezaan Jafri is strictly okay. The actor tries his greatest however in some scenes, his comedian timing just isn’t upto the mark. A job like this required a much more proficient actor. Pranitha Subhash places up a assured act and leaves a mark. Shilpa Shetty appears ravishing and proves that she will be able to nonetheless ship a advantageous efficiency. Sadly, her display time is proscribed. Paresh Rawal’s monitor is humorous however the humour is weak. Performance-wise, he’s first-rate. Ashutosh Rana has a lengthier and even stronger position. He goes a bit overboard however manages to entertain. Tiku Talsania additionally will get his act proper, particularly within the DNA report scene. Manoj Joshi is alright. Rajpal Yadav has a small position however brings in large laughs. Johny Lever is sweet within the cameo. Akshaye Khanna is nothing nice within the particular look. The little one actors do effectively however their monitor just isn’t effectively utilized. The actors enjoying Meezaan’s sister and brother are common.
Anu Malik’s music is forgettable. ‘Chura Ke Dil Mera 2.0’ is the perfect of the lot due to Shilpa’s sensuous strikes. ‘Pehli Baar’, ‘Chinta Na Kar’, ‘Aao Chalein Hum’ and ‘Hungama Ho Gaya’ are disappointing. Ronnie Raphael’s background rating is healthier and is within the Priyadarshan zone.
Ekhambhram N K’s cinematography is breath-taking. The locales of Manali are effectively captured. Selvakumar’s manufacturing design may be very superior. In truth, the movie appears like a wealthy product. The costumes are glamorous, particularly those worn by Shilpa Shetty. M S Aiyyapan Nair’s modifying might have been tighter.
On the entire, HUNGAMA 2 just isn’t as humorous as one expects it to be. The movie suffers because of the lengthy size, insipid script, weak humour and lack of logic. A serious disappointment.
