Housefull 3 – Movie Review

Housefull series is known for 3 reasons for being out and out laugh riot, senseless plot, and comedy of errors. The third installment of the series i.e. Housefull 3 is expected to be the same, with multi-star-cast including Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan and many others. Let’s see what Housefull3 has to offer to its viewers

Housefull 3 starts with a failed attempt to execute a bank robbery by 3 men. The next shot introduces Batook Patel (Boman Irani) and his 3 daughters Ganga (Jaqueline Fernandez), Jamuna (Lisa Haydon) and Saraswati (Nargis Fakhri). Batook doesn’t want his daughters to get married but the girls are in love with 3 losers named Sandy (Akshay Kumar) who suffers from a split-personality trait, Teddy (Riteish Deshmukh) a dud car racer and Bunty (Abhishek Bachchan) a crass rapper. The story takes another turn when the Mumbai’s famous Don Urja Nagre (Jackie Shroff) enters in their lives. What happens next is what Housefull 3 is all about.

Performance wise, no one delivers a noteworthy act. Akshay is too loud, Abhishek is boring, Boman Irani is type-casted and offers nothing new. Riteish somewhat gives his earnest to give powerless dialogues some comical feel. Jackie looks his role and gives a sincere attempt to look his character. Chunky Pandey and “Aakhri Pasta” is exactly the same, as he portrayed in previous Housefull installments.

The major drawback of Housefull 3 is its script. The story and script suffer from blunders and senselessness. Songs are weird with obnoxious lyrics like “Pyar ki maa ki”, “Taang Uthaakay” and “Maalamaal”.

Housefull 3 is a perfect example of a movie that is stuffed with star power, glamour quotient and high production values but even then suffers from quality of content in terms of script, dialogues, scenarios and commonsense. Housefull 3 can easily be skipped; not recommended at all.

On the scale from 1 to 5, Housefull 3 deserves only 1 star; that’s the most it should get.
