Housefull 2, a rip-off of a Tamil film!

Akshay Kumar's latest film Housefull 2, a sequel to 2010 hit Housefull, seems to be inspired by Tamil film Bandha Paramasivam. After watching the Hindi film, we could not help but notice the striking similarities between the two films.

Bandha Paramasivam was directed by TP Gajendran and produced by Selvakumar, under the Varshini Films banner. The movie cast comprised Abbas, Rambha, Kalabhavan Mani, Livingston, P Vasu, Monica, Manivannan, and Manobala. However, the makers of the film are reportedly in no mood to take necessary action against the Housefull bosses because of the fact that the Hindi rights were sold to a Mumbai-based production house a few years ago.

Meanwhile, Housefull 2, which has big stars like Akshay Kumar, Asin, John, Jacqueline and Ritesh in the leads, has got a flying start at the Box Office. The film has collected Rs 43.5 crores nett at the collections centres in the first weekend despite getting moderate reviews.
