Housefull 4 film review
Director- Farhad Samji
Cast – Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh, Pooja Hegde, Kriti Kharbanda
Housefull 4 film review is At a time if the content is king, and out-and-out comedy like Housefull 4 has its task cut out. Housefull 4, on its part, does a convincing job with an all-star cast of Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Riteish Deshmukh, Pooja Hegde, Bobby Deol, Chunky Pandey, among others. The movie, directed by Farhad Samji, manages to tickle your funny bone while giving sense.
Another plus is that Housefull-4 goes away funny as Samji moves the pot with drama, action. The clear standout is Akshay’s bald king Bala with his mannerisms and a viral impression step.
The film divide between two eras, 1419 – 2019. Harry (Akshay Kumar), Max (Bobby Deol) & Roy (Riteish Deshmukh) own a barbershop in London & are in debt. To pay off the huge loan, they devise a plan to marry 3- millionaire sisters. Harry experiences from short-term memory loss on hearing any loud sounds, including often have flashbacks of life he started 600 years ago. Early in Housefull 4, we discuss Harry is visiting Sitamgarh, where it all began and then persuading others that they all have all been reborn.
We introduced to the cast’s period avatars – King Bala (Akshay), Bangdu Maharaj (Riteish) and Dharamputra (Bobby)1419. The twist in the story begins when they realise they marry wrong girls, has an influence on their future.
Bollywood is no stranger to reincarnation tales. It has tried the genre often in the past with various degrees of success – while Karz, Karan Arjun and Om Shanti Om achieved cult status, others such as Ek Paheli Leela and Raabta sunk.
For Housefull 4, it is the drama that sets it apart. The 1st half of the film keeps you interested with its period look and sets installed on a lavish scale, but the 2nd half is a downer with a weaker story. Even if you fast forward the 2nd half to the climax, you will not miss anything.
The discussions, with a clear emphasis on rhyming, keep the laughs happening.
Samji, who has also written the dialogues, provides us with those gems:
‘Aaj Mera fast hai, isliye thoda slow maara’, ‘Isne gender ka tender nahi bhara’, Kabootar ka yuck brings good luck’, ‘Maa ka saaya nahi hai aur mundan ke baad sir par chaaya nahi hai’.
Housefull-4 also references more adult films and songs in creative ways to keep you smiling. While Housefull 1, 2, 3 did roaring riots with some lame jokes, Housefull 4 thankfully succeeds that fault with elan.
The movie rests on Akshay’s arms, and he does an excellent job of keeping it going. He perks up the cover with his very appearance, giving a fillip to others’ performances too. As Bala, he raises the session, but the little character of Harry makes him down.
Riteish Deshmukh, Chunky Pandey, who has so spot-on comic timing, has been under-utilised in the film, with their dialogues often sounding off-track. Bobby Deol looks macho and stands out.
Among the female actors, Kriti Sanon performs well – both as a princess & a partner of today. Her namesake, Kriti Kharbanda, brings freshness to the screen through her weak dialogue performance is distracting. PoojaHegde, who is taking a period role over after her debut Mohenjo Daro, is strictly normal. The only scene where she tears off a joke is when she says ‘In Shandon ko toh sangeet mein pirona chahiye’ in a rather cheeky way.
Rana Daggubati is lost during an anaglyph, particularly as we’ve got a return to expect such a lot from him once Baahubali. Past villain Ranjit, senior actor Manoj Pahwa and Johhny Lever area unit in their component. Amid such associate degree exciting lineup, Sharad Kelkar seems to be the surprise component, and quite spectacular too.
While Housefull four music is standard, the Ek Chumma song has been superbly choreographed. Bala _Shaitaan Hindu deity Saala is that the highlight with its lame however catchy lyrics. A qawwali known as Badla that includes genus Rana doesn’t fare any higher.
Housefull four is kind of the comic entertainment that provides you with a significant dose of laughter this gay season if you’ll be able to keep your expectations in restraint. Watch it if you’re an addict of Housefull franchise and, of course, Akshay Kumar, UN agency looks to be recovering with age.
