Housefull 2: Old recipe, new spices

KARACHI / LAHORE:
Despite being an underdog in the league of upcoming young directors, Sajid Khan has still managed to gain recognition in B-town through his stale sense of humour which he displays at award show and his trying-too-hard and almost-there films.
Sajid’s films like Hey Baby and Housefull belong to the pool of supposedly comedy films that fail to impress us. Although, Hey Baby wasn’t that bad of a film, it wasn’t original either. Housefull, a film that starred comedy king Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmuk, Lara Dutta and Deepika Padukone, on the other hand, was all about hot girls, good-looking men, beautiful beaches and occasional humour — a formula that earned a decent response at the box office in 2010.
With its sequel however, Sajid has multiplied the same formula and sprinkled it with a few good item numbers. In addition to Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh, Housefull 2 stars John Abraham, Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez and Zarine Khan.
