Review of Hungama 2

Aakash Kapoor is the son of Colonel Gobind Kapoor, and he is all set to marry the daughter of their family friend Mr. Bajaj. But suddenly, out of nowhere, Vaani, Aakash’s college girlfriend, arrives at his home with a kid and claims that Aakash is the father of the child. Aakash tries to convince everyone that he is not the father, but nobody believes him. With the wedding just around the corner, how Aakash and his family handle this unprecedented situation is what we witness in this Minnaram remake.


Improvising and restructuring a story that was written almost two decades ago is not a bad thing to do. But the problem I felt with Hungama 2 is that the makers are trying to treat it as a no-brainer comedy. Yes, the initial jokes in Minnaram also had these slapstick elements in them. But those sequences had an organic feel to their credit, and now I realize how much the acting part made those sequences hilarious and memorable. The scenes in Hungama 2 are lifeless. While someone like Mohanlal portrayed the tension of the hero so believably and hilariously, Meezaan Jaffrey’s portrayal of the same character felt like an amateur mimicry of Ranbir Kapoor. The logic less climax was just like adding insult to injury.

The original one that had tragic emotions at the end is tweaked here, and this happy ending version will actually make you sad for all the wrong reasons.
