The trailers/promos made it very clear that this was not gonna be some kind of a coy comedy, it made no bones about being a straightforward ribald laughfest.
And it delivered........and how!!!!
The entire movie, from start to end, is packed with some really funny(and some not so funny) "non veg" jokes and situations. Funnily enough, it actually has a storyline, which seems plausible for the large part.
In terms of the acting, well, Riteish Deshmukh, once again, proves that he is the king of comedy. His expressions, comic timing, dialogue delivery, everything is done with such perfection, and effortlessly, that he is a pleasure to watch. The other 2 leading men are adequate.
From the 6 leading ladies, the only one that stands out is Karishma Tanna. She looks the part, and doesn't go overboard in the crassiness quotient. (Disclosure: Karishma is a friend, so my opinion might appear biased, but it isn't). I am fairly certain that she is the only one of the 6 that will make serious inroads into the hindi film industry in the coming months and years.
The music is disappointing. The first part had some really great music, and this one falls flat in this department.
A lot has been made out about how this movie further strengthens the stereotype of women being sex objects and male chauvinism etc, but then again, I would really not want to get into that argument, there are other battles to fight in the world.
In summary, I would definitely recommend this one to you, with the provisio that if you are going to an Italian restaurant for dinner, do not be outraged when you're served pizza and/or pasta.
Laugh your worries away (Especially in the scene in the tent with Bruna Abdalla and Riteish Deshmukh.
