Hungama 2, Nothing Funny About Paternity Identity



Hungama 2

Priyadarshan’s Hungama 2  comes  to us  with  the promise  of a  lot of laughter  during these grim times. But the  grin to counter  the grim in Hungama 2  is so forced  it almost seems criminal to be not  LOL-ing  and ROFL-ing    while  watching the trailer.

This is  humour from the  1980s. In fact  it is  not  even funny. Just a rumour of  humour. Hungama 2  seems  to  be a remake  of  Priyadarshan’s 1994 Minnaram in  Malayalam where Mohanlal  had played an affable  bloke  whom  a  college friend suddenly accuses  of being her  child’s father. No one suggests a paternity test. Instead  the alleged father  protests while  the  rest of the  characters  roll their eyes and try to have fun with parts from which  the steam ran out in  the 1980s.

Shilpa Shetty plays  Paresh Rawal’s  “hot” wife. She is  supposed to be over 40 but behaves  like a 17 year old on speed.I do hope  Ms Shetty  has  more to  do than look “hot” in  the film.To see  her  sizzle  in  tight dresses  we can always check out her Insta  account.  I was hoping to see  Ms Shetty doing what she  is  supposed to  in Hungama 2. Act.Alas,the trailer seems  happy objectifying her middleaged sexiness.

In one  song and dance she is seen grooving to  Chura  ke dil mera  goriya chali.We   get  the reference, thank you.

 There is plenty  of dancing in Hungama 2   , and that’s a good thing. Meezan Jaffrey has inherited his father’s dancing shoes. He  also seems  very confident about his comic timing which is likely to be a  plus in the  film. Paresh Rawal seems  to have made a  comeback after a long layoff. He  will be seen in two  films Toofan and Hungama 2  this month. He  seems  to be equally comfortable playing the serious coach and the  funny clown.

In one  sequence   of the  Hungama 2 trailer Meezan insists  on telling  Rawal what transpired with his  wife.

“Mujhe nahin sunn-na  hai,”  Paresh  moans  and pleads.

 After seeing  the trailer I feel  the same about the  film.I am not too sure I want to see Meezan chasing Shilpa Shetty.
