Hungama 2 Movie Review: Hungama 2 is the remake of the 1994 Malayalam movie, Minnaram, that’s helmed by Priyadarshan who additionally made the unique.

Hungama 2 is about how Akash Kapoor (Meezan Jafri) sees his life flip topsy-turvy when his previous comes knocking on the door of his home. His previous is Vaani (Pranitha Subhash), his faculty sweetheart who left him with none motive and is now again with a toddler who she claims is his. His strict father (Ashutosh Rana), who has organized for Akash to get engaged to the daughter of his businessman buddy Bajaj (Manoj Joshi), is in a lurch. He does not know whom to consider – his son who’s denying all the things, or a lady who has all of the proof that the kid is his grandkid.

On a separate observe, there may be Radheshyam Tiwari (Paresh Rawal), Bajaj’s lawyer. He is suspicious of his a lot youthful spouse Anjali (Shilpa Shetty Kundra), who occurs to be Kapoor’s shut relative. Due to a {series} of misunderstandings, he thinks Anjali and Akash are having an affair, and she is carrying his baby.

For those that do not know this, Priyadarshan and Mohanlal have been greatest associates even earlier than they got here into motion pictures. Priyadarshan has made many memorable entertainers with Mohanlal within the lead, although Minnaram is not one in all their greatest ones. Yes, Minnaram continues to be remembered for its comedy scenes, however its emotional subplot that dominated the third act was very weak.

Hungama 2 adjustments that half, which was a wise transfer (Lalu Alex’s ‘polycythaemia vera’ dialogue has now turn into a joke), however retains many of the premise of the unique intact. Even the units and scenes are virtually body to border. Also together with facets of a movie that will have been excusable in 1994, however in no way in 2021. There is a scene the place Akash tries to get Vaani to admit and file it utilizing a tape-recorder! This, within the time of smartphones!

People get slapped left, proper and centre. Also, when Minnaram got here out, nobody would have questioned why the character performed by Shilpa Shetty can be in a relationship that’s so mentally abusive. Now we do.

Priyadarshan’s comedian remakes was good, even when I’ve appreciated the originals higher. Be it Hera Pheri, Hulchul, Hungama and even De Dana Dhan, they had been fairly humorous. Hungama 2, that needlessly shares the title of his 2003 movie, isn’t an out and out comedy like its predecessor, and above all, not even humorous in any respect.

If you’ve gotten watched Priyadarshan’s comedies in Malayalam, not for a second, do you’re feeling that the humour is loud. But in his each remake in Hindi, comedian sequences really feel stretched, loud and farcical. People discuss and act as if everybody round them are hearing-impaired. Hungama 2 has that drawback multi-fold.

I may give an instance of comparability right here. In the unique Minnaram (which itself is impressed from a black and white Malayalam film Brahmachari), there’s a scene the place the late Sankaradi, who performed the hero’s caretaker, rushes to inform Shobana, the heroine, that her daughter has fell from the home. He simply exaggerates what actually occurred, however the way in which he says it, leaves her anxious and makes her rush to the home. Later when she confronts him, he tells her that she did not enable him to finish the sentence and ran away, thereby passing the blame on to her. Hungama 2: From Hera Pheri to Garam Masala, 7 Best Priyadarshan Comedies in Bollywood, Ranked!

The identical scene in Hungama 2 has the veteran Tiku Talsania do all kinds of facial expressions to depict the identical dialog, ruining the purpose of what he’s making an attempt to deceive her into misunderstanding. Even the often reliable Ashutosh Rana is made to ham like something. Strange half is that regardless of doing the same loud act – I used to be anxious about his vocal chords – Meezan (whose uncanny semblance to Ranbir Kapoor’s appears to be like and mannerisms are distracting sufficient) comes clean with regards to emoting. Pranitha Subhash’s efficiency is restricted to wanting fairly and looking for her place within the hamminess.

I additionally marvel what made Shilpa Shetty Kundra selected this function and film as her comeback. Her complete observe may be very secondary, her character hardly has meat and she solely function a shtick for Paresh Rawal to do his mildly amusing antics (Jagathy Sreekumar admirers, please do not come right here). And yeah, there may be additionally Rajpal Yadav and Johnny Lever (with a doubtful Bengali accent that will not sound humorous even within the ’90s), who come, current their antics, and depart the scene after incomes the paycheck for his or her day’s work

Like I discussed earlier than, Priyadarshan has modified the climax of the unique and tried to make it funnier. At least attempt-wise. Fans of Mohanlal would spot a humorous scene from Vandanam in there. The level is, I’m utilizing the phrase ‘humorous’ right here and there, however Hungama 2 is solely the other of that. It is as humorous as a molar tooth extraction.

The unique Hungama was the remake of Poochakkoru Mookkuthi, the 1984 movie that marked the directorial debut of Priyadarshan and additionally starred Mohanlal. Forget being on the identical league as Hungama, Hungama 2 can be competing with the likes of Muskurahat and Saat Rang Ke Sapne as to being the worst Mohanlal remake that his BFF has copy-pasted for Hindi viewers. Even the songs are horrible, together with the needlessly inserted “Churake Dil Mera” remake that’s there to justify why Shilpa Shetty and her midriff are there within the film.

Final Thoughts

Hungama 2 isn’t solely a pointless extension to a franchise, but additionally a pointless remake, and additionally a pointless train in making our ears cut up with all of the noise. The solely factor that Hungama 2 does higher than Minnaram is that it does not kill a canine in a bomb explosion, which the unique did. Not as a result of the director has turned a dog-lover, however Priyadarshan had already borrowed that scene in Yeh Teraa Ghar Yeh Meraa Ghar. Hungama 2 is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
