One of the most awaited movies Hungama 2 is released on streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar. Hungama is one of the most iconic movies in Bollywood. Priyadarshan has directed the first installment. Now after 18 years, the director is back with the sequel of the movie, Hungama 2. Hungama 2 was ready to release for one year. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the theatres are not yet open fully. Hence, the makers have decided to release it digitally. Hungama 2 starring Paresh Rawal, Shilpa Shetty, Meezaan Jaffery, Pranitha Subhash, Johny Lever, Ashutosh Rana, Rajpal Yadav, Tiku Talsania, and Manoj Joshi. It is a light comedy movie, but the magic of first Hungama is clearly missing.
Hungama 2 Story
The story of the film revolves around two families Tiwari’s and Kapoor’s. Colonel Kapoor played by Ashutosh Rana. Meezaan Jaffery is playing the role of Ashutosh Rana’s son Aakash. Paresh Rawal as Radhe Shyam Tiwari has a younger wife Anjali played by Shilpa Shetty. Aakash is about to marry the daughter of his father’s friend. The twist comes, when Vaani played by Pranitha Subhash enters with a child. Who is the father of that child is where the chaos and situational comedy have been created.
Hungama 2 Review
Hungama 2 is based on Priyadarshan’s own 1994 Malayalam film Minnaram. If you are expecting the same Priyadarshan magic from Hungama 2, honestly you will disappoint. Do not compare with the first Hungama, it was an amazing movie. Paresh Rawal was as usual standout with his performance. Meezaan Jaffery and Pranitha Subhash were impressive. Shilpa Shetty, who made her comeback after 14 years, was looking glamorous. You will be surprised to see Akshaye Khanna in a cameo.
There are only a few comedy scenes that will make you laugh. However, the story and screenplay fall flat. The magic of Priyadarshan’s direction was also missing. Overall, it is an average film, that is not so good and not so bad.
We give Hungama 2, 2.5 stars out of 5. Have you watched the movie? How do you like? Let us know in the comments below.
