Movie Review: Housefull 2 (2012)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Super Hit

HOUSEFULL 2… The Dirty Dozen is the second super star packed installment in the HOUSEFULL franchise. It is the story of four fathers, four daughters and four prospective son-in-laws and as the second half of the tile suggests, they are the dirty dozen.

Each father wants his daughter to marry the richest son-in-law. Each daughter thinks she is marrying the richest son-in-law. Each son-in-law is pretending to be the richest son-in-law. Each character is flawed, unscrupulous and extremely entertaining.

However, none of these people can stand each other and all of them are under one roof, in one house as the first half of the title suggests – HOUSEFULL.

Directed by Sajid Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film stars an ensemble cast including Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Shreyas Talpade, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan, Shazahn Padamsee, Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty and Boman Iran
