Actors: Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol
There is an atmosphere of Diwali and this Diwali is silver for both box office and fans. Akshay Kumar is coming with Housefull 4. But like a dessert can not be made tasty by just filling it with dry fruits. In the same way, to make a film houseful only with a huge starcast, forceful action and comedy does not mean that it should also do movie entertainment. Well, let us know how successful Housefull 4 has been in making people laugh.
What the story of the film?
The story of the film starts from London but stops in London for 10-5 minutes and reaches Sitamgarh soon. So Porshan of London disappears from the mind in the first half of the film. Well, let's get to the story. The story of the film is based on rebirth. The first half of the film shows the story of 1419 and the second half of 2019. Coming to the story of 1419, Prince Bala (Akshay Kumar) of Madhavgarh has been evicted from the state by his father. Bala is a very cruel and mean prince. After which he wants to take revenge from his father by going to Sitamgarh and marry the elder princess Madhu (Kriti Senan) and grab the entire kingdom. So that he can later take revenge on his father by attacking him. When the prince goes to Bala Sitamgarh, then there is a 5-day celebration to commemorate the birthday of Maharaj (Ranjit) of Sitamgarh.
Upon reaching Sitamgarh, Bala tries to trap Princess Madhu in the trap of his love. Meanwhile, Bala meets Bangdu Maharaj (Ritesh Deshmukh), who is a dancer. Together with Bangaroo Maharaj, find a way to find Madhu. After which the entry is made by Dharmaputra (Bobby Deol), the bodyguard of the princesses. Bala also associates Dharmaputra with the princess to trap Madhu and later also captures Princess Madhu with her tricks. Meanwhile, Dharmaputra and Bangdu Maharaj also fall in love with both princesses. Everybody wants to get married. But they do not get married. The reason behind their not getting married is Gama (Rana Daggubati). But why does Gama not let all the princesses get married? What is the role of Suryabhan (Sharad Kelkar) in this whole story? How will this 1419 story look in 2109? How many ups and downs will happen in the lives of Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh and Bobby Deol? And the meeting that did not happen in 1419 will happen in 2019? To know all this, you have to watch the film.
The weakest link in the film is the storyline, while the strong part is the direction. The script of Housefull has not been made at all with the comedy film in mind. There are only 4 to 5 scenes in the entire film where laughter comes. Otherwise it seems that someone is trying to laugh forcefully by hitting a dirty joke. The story does not connect anywhere. Emotion does not come. Boredom is sometimes felt. There is so much action in the first half that you forget that you have come to watch a comedy film. The film has been strayed from the main point comedy of the film by putting forceful action. Looking at the grand sets of the film, it seems that Bahubali has come to see not Housefull. An attempt has been made to add a sprinkling of horror in the film at one or two places, but to no avail. At the same time, in the second half, especially in Climax, I have tried very well to laugh. There is laughter when successive knives are inserted into Akshay Kumar's bomb. At the same time, if you talk about the direction, Farhad Samji has done a great job. Camera angles are also good. Shot in wide range.
Boring jokes have been used in the film in the name of dialogue. But Johnny Lever and Chunky Pandey have tried their best to save the boat from sinking. Comic timing of both is as good as ever. Johnny Lever's dance is also entertained by wearing a sari.
Talking of acting, Akshay-Ritesh-Bobby has done justice to their roles. If the film's dialogues were good and punchy, then every character would have flourished. That spice was missing from the houseful, on which the film was made. At the same time, the acting of Kriti Sanon-Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde did not give that much feel. Talking about Nawazuddin Siddiqui, if his role in the film is only about songs. If someone else had replaced Nawazuddin, he would have also played. Sharad Kelkar has played his role well. Rana Daggubati also played full on character. Rana was perfect in the role of the dreaded villain.
Graphics and cinematography have been used well in the film. The graphics used to establish every character at the beginning of the film are also fantastic. The film's graphics and sets remind us of Bahubali.
By the way, there is no need to tell, but still the best thing in the film is its music. The background music of the film itself tells half the story. Bala, Ek Chumma, The Bhoot Song and Chammo all do full on entertainment.
