Year 2012 has rightly been called the year of the sequels. Names like HOUSEFULL 2, DABANGG 2 and JANNAT 2 etc. are all scheduled to hit the screens this year.
First off the block (5th April) is going to be Sajid Khan's HOUSEFULL 2, the next in the series of the highly successful HOUSEFULL (2010), Akshay's biggest and cleanest hit in the last four-five years or so.
Coming back to the topic at hand, though the teaser of the film will be officially unveiled with the Kareena-Imran starrer, EK MAIN AUR EKK TU, on 10th February, but we were privy to the highly entertaining promo. The teaser touches the important issue of doting fathers being worried about what the future (marriage) holds for their beloved daughters. Of course with Sajid Khan at the helm of affairs, it has his by now familiar and popular zany brand of homour and the hilarious full on entertainment situations.
The song in the background, "Pappa To Band Bajaien" promises a fun musical extravaganza and says it all, and one can rest assured that just like Sajid's previous two films, HEYY BABYY and HOUSEFULL, the music of HOUSEFULL 2 will be chartbusting as well.
With actors of the caliber of Rishi Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Boman Irani, Randhir Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh and glamour in the form of Asin, Jacqueline, needless to add that the film looks like a winner right from the first frame of the teaser itself.
Having been an avid Hindi cinema watcher, and also following the box-office trends for the last 10-12 years or so, we can safely predict that the film has a universal appeal and will be lapped up be the audience and mark 'Khiladi' Akshay Kumar's first foray into the 100 crore club and complete Asin's hattrick of centuries.
