Bollywood has been in dire straits for too long. IPL and exams never allowed the film industry to bounce back. A series of films were released during the last couple of months but they vanished into the thin airs in no time. Prince brought some hope but not big enough to bring smile on the face of the film industrywallas. Paathshaala didn"t live up to the expectations. Now, Housefull seems to be the only hope to bring Bollywood back on the track.
Yes, all eyes are on Housefull, featuring Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Jiah Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Arjun Rampal. This romantic comedy revolves around Akshay, the unluckiest man on earth. With the hope of fighting bad luck by finding his true love, he goes out looking for one. He lies about in order to fulfill his dream but people around him makes things even worse. The rest of the film deals is about the comedy of errors.
The highlight of the film is the deadly combination of Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh. They brought the house down in Heyy Babyy. Adding more spice to the film, Lara Dutta, who exposed her lighter side in Partner, is back to prick your sides. As if that"s not enough, the film boasts of glamorous actresses like Jiah Khan and Deepika Padukone. It's reported that these hot babes would be seen in a bikini. Arjun Rampal is going to try out comedy with this film.
The hype around Housefull, produced by Sajid Nadiyadwala and directed by Sajid Khan, has been so far so good. But the big question is – will Housefull rescue Bollywood from bad times? You"ll have to wait and see if the theatres put up 'Housefull board" at the ticket counters when it releases tomorrow, April 30.
