3.5 Very Good

Phir Hera Pheri

A sequel has its upsides and flipsides-Phir Hera Pheri is no exception.

Raju (Akshay Kumar), Shyam (Suneil Shetty) and Baburao (Paresh Rawal) who earn big bucks at the end of the first part; live a lavish life at the start of the second episode. But with the money comes greed for more money. So, in the greed to double their money, they borrow more money from the underworld and invest it in a chit fund on the behest of Anuradha (Bipasha Basu). But the company turns out to be bogus and thereby they lose all their assets coming back to square one. From here on starts their attempt in paying back loans taken from the underworld.

The movie runs at jet speed pace and you hardly get time to breathe, gasp, feel, absorb, react or relate. The film is cluttered with so many characters that you lose count after some time. And while none of the actors are bad, they are unnecessorily boisterous at times. Phir Hera Pheri anduces plenty of laughter but you do feel that with a little more fine-tuning, it could've been more hilarious. The movie however, ends quite abruptly, keeping enough scope for a sequel to continue the series.We just hope the next episode gets better.

Till then, JUST CHILL!
