Hungama 2 Review: Priyadarshan’s Comedy Drama Lacks Comedy Itself

Hungama 2 Review

Hungama 2 Review: Hotstar original film Hungama 2 has released a few hours back on the platform, the film is the comeback of Priyadarshan as director and Shilpa Shetty as an actor, the film is an official remake of a Malayalam film. I just finished the film and here I am with the review of the film, I am going to talk about the performances, Plots, highlights, and drawbacks of the film.

The movie stars Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan Jaffery, and Parnitha Subash in main lead roles, the movie also stars Rajpal Yadav, Tiku Talsania, Ashutosh Rana, Manoj Joshi, Johny Lever, and others in supporting roles, the film is created and directed by Priyadarshan. As we told you earlier the film is the official remake of the Malayalam film Minnaram that was released in 1994.

The movie is approx 2 hours and 30 minutes long. The film is some double meaning jokes, few double meaning scenes still, you can watch the film with family, but avoid watching it with small Kids.

Story

The story starts from a Kapoor family, where Mr. Kapoor wants his younger son Akash to get married, the preparation of marriage has begun in the house and almost everything is going as per Plan. All of a sudden an Unknown girl Vaani arrives at the house with her small daughter claiming that Akash Kapoor is the father of that small girl, While Akash rejects this claim, Vaani is on her words and she decides not to leave the house until she gets justice. Who is Vaani and who is the father of that small girl, to know this you have to watch the full movie on Hotstar.

Performances

The film is full of amazing actors and performances, Paresh Rawal was decent in his role, he looks good sometimes, sometimes he loses his charm. His body language reminds me of his role in Guest in London. Shilpa Shetty was not that good, I must say this is the worst comeback that anyone can get or imagined. She looks imperfect in that role and she misses that old charm in the whole film. Rajpal Yadav was decent and the Same is with Johny Lever.

Meezaan Jaffery was amazing and he is one of the biggest highlights of the film, he looks good and his dialogue delivery, expressions were awesome. Parnitha Subash was also decent in her role and she looks good in the character. Aashutosh Rana looks average in his role and I will blame the poor dialogues and the script for this. I like the performance of Tiku Talsania, he is was too good in the film and he reminds me of the old golden days with his acting and dialogue delivery.

Analysis

The script of the film is a mess and the film lacks comedy, the first 30 minutes of the film are so dull, unfunny, and irritating that most of you will stop watching the film after that. The screenplay, story, and dialogues are the same old typical dialogues, We had already seen similar stories of Mistaken identity in the films of Priyadarshan and he repeated the same thing again here.

The film looks Lavish, Shilpa Shetty looks amazing and the budget of the film is high, but these are not characteristics of a Priyadarshan film, he manages to make laugh with a small budget and amazing story telling and he failed in all department here. The film is one of the worst remakes in the history of Indian cinema. Imagine you are all set to watch a comedy film and then you didn’t get a single laugh even after 30 minutes of the film.
