House Full

Rated NR 135 min. 2010

Casino worker Aarush (Akshay Kumar) is unlucky. When gamblers are winning, Aarush is summoned; a brush of his fingers on the gaming tables ruins their streak. Akshay's sad-sack entrance to the strains of Shankar-Esaan-Loy's "He's such a loser" sets up the laughs and, for once, we're not disappointed! Three quarters of Housefull's quest to change Aarush's destiny is quite fun, unlike some of Akshay's recent, dismally strained efforts. He has the support of three chipper ladies—Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta and Jiah Khan—along with goofy guys Ritesh Deshmukh, Arjun Rampal, Boman Irani and Chunky Pandey (as a desi Italian in sun-baked Puglia, Italy). A former action hero, Akshay seems to enjoy his dweebish character, with his lame haircut, plaid shirts and wide ties. And, for once, there are no comedy gangsters. Sajid Khan's farce is an enjoyable diversion, at least until the inevitable concluding chaos.
