As claimed by director and actor Hemanth Hegde – 100 percent entertainment and 0 percent bore – the film ‘House Full’ is not up to the mark. It is only 50 percent entertainment and first 50 percent of the movie that is pre interval is a big bore.
What is delectable is that Hemanth Hegde has not stooped to cheap level comedy in his film. He has graduated from the usual rut that is seen in comedy scenes on silver screen, made this film a colorful one, got hold of good looking artists caught up with two lovely tunes, selected good locales and hit the screen with not that full entertainer script.
There is nothing to mention about the first half except that Diggu is cheating his South Africa living grand father and he is a free loader studying MBA for last five years plus his friend and his wife are staying in his house, he has a servant in the house and he has a girl friend Neethu.
Diganth pyaari ladki Vishaka Singh is angry with him and leaves him for his lack of commitment. At this stage Diggu has to send the photo of the girl he is getting married. Instead of Neethu photograph the photograph of Aishwarya (Girija Oak) lands in the computer of Diggu’s grandfather in South Africa. The grand father in grand style gives entry to his grandson house for three days stay and now Diggu has to pretend with his friend Prem (Hemanth Hegde) wife Aishwarya as his wife. When Aishwarya over acts with grandfather he decides to stay for three months in Bangalore that becomes very hard nut to crack.
The grand father in the house is in doubt in Goa when Neethu who is declared dead and said as Prem’s wife resurface and admit her fault. The problems further mount up for the four – Diggu, Nithu, Prem and Asiwharya in Goa. It is at this place grandfather Lokanath arrange for marriage of his grandson with Aishwarya that opens up everything. Diggu admit everything in his voice over and also explain the torture he is facing. Some more confusion that finally leads to happy ending as the grandfather makes everyone dumbstruck for a few seconds.
Diggu is fine in this type of comedy role. Hemanth Hegde cries more than laugh. Both the lasses Vishaka Singh and Girija Oak are OK. Lokanath, Rekha and Ramesh Bhat combination is also impressive. Milind Gunanj is wasted.
This is the last film of recently demised actor Maina Chandru!
Kiran has given two lovely tunes that are beautifully shot in the camera by Magi Natesh.
An engaging second half you get in the ‘House Full’.
