Is The Movie Worth Watching?
The fans are giving a mixed reaction to the movie. But most of them are negatives. Fans were really excited when the news of the sequel being in the works came out. But the movie is being called just an average comedy movie. It is nowhere compared to its first part, the 2003 Hungama. The audience is calling the movie repetitive and sloppy. Watching the movies is one’s own call as it might not be that bad to watch it with the family. The movie is like a jigsaw puzzle. Where the characters are interconnected with each other. In the end, they fit in together. Calling it a sequel, the two movies only have the interconnection of the characters with each other connected.
