They created 'Hungama' at the box office last year; this year, join them to create 'Hulchul'.
From the house of Venus, Ganesh Jain and Ratan Jain present another Priyadarshan rib-tickling comedy high on entertainment adrenalin. Earlier, Venus has given us blazing entertainment like Khiladi, Baazigar, Main Khiladi Tu Anadi, Yes Boss, Josh, Dhadkan and Humraaz. In Hulchul, Priyadarshan has packed another powerhouse cast as a follow-up to Hungama, led by Akshaye Khanna with Kareena Kapoor as the leading lady this time around, with Suniel Shetty, Paresh Rawal, Arshad Warsi, Jackie Shroff, Arbaaz Khan, Amrish Puri and Lakshmi for company, all set to bring the house down with roaring laughter.
Hulchul is a story of two estranged families, the premier family of a small town Matkapur, headed by fiery Angaarchand (Amrish Puri), an influential landlord, pitted against the family headed by lakhmidevi (Lakshmi), a rich landlady of the neighbouring village Anpura. Angaarchand and his family of four sons (Jackie Shroff, Paresh Rawal, Arbaaz Khan and Akshaye Khanna) have taken a vow to stay away from women owing to a past family tragedy (Apparently caused by womankind), and the mere mention of the opposite sex is strictly forbidden. At the same time, Lakshmidevi is waiting for an opportunity to seek revenge on Angaarchand and his family. As luck would have it, Angaarchand's youngest son, Jai (Akshaye Khanna), and Lakshmidevi's granddaughter, Anjali (Kareena Kapoor), fall in love. Or do they? In the greatest con of romantic cinema to-date, what follows is a comedy of errors with deceit of a rather naughty kind between the leads with their families in tow trying to be one up on the other.
