Six suave actors… A decent brand… The year has given hard-hitting films only… I was waiting for this comedy but never expected moon… Phew!
“Housefull 3” is a parliament of over-the-top comedy, an amalgam of both funny and silly gags and some beautiful actors, that both fools you and drools you. It’s a bearable comedy like its predecessors.
Housefull 3: Synopsis
Batuk Patel (Boman Irani) has three beautiful effigies of his testosterone; his three beautiful daughters Ganga (Jacqueline Fernandez), Jamuna (Lisa Haydon) and Saraswati (Nargis). He doesn’t want them to get married due to some ulterior motives but the trio is dating Sandy (Akshay Kumar), Teddy (Riteish Deshmukh) and Bunty (Abhishek Bachchan) respectively.
Now the father has put up an ‘if-condition’. Fallen in love, the guys now have to pretend to be handicapped: Sandy- a wheel-chair dependent, Teddy fools them into being blind and Bunty pretends to be mute.
What happens thereafter will tickle your funny bone.
Housefull 3: Story, Screenplay and Direction
For a film of this genre, that too in Bollywood, story doesn’t matter much if it suffices. The story by K. Subhash is OK. He has written what majority likes.
Farhad-Sajid‘s screenplay is of a good stature. There are plenty scenes to make you LOL. For instance, the one in which Akshay aka Sundi dances on “Pinga“. Though the comedy is seriously slapstick, it’s funny and enjoyable.
The dialogues by the duo are funny but taking inspiration from Facebook-memes wasn’t a good idea.
Directors (Farhad-Sajid again) have seriously escalated from their “Entertainment” level. The film is entertaining as a whole.
Housefull 3: Stars’ Performances
All the actors have done a fine job with Akshay and Boman standing out. The casting of Abhishek as a rapper, though, doesn’t fit the bill.
The ladies look exotic and do what was required.
Housefull 3: Music and Other Technical Aspects
Music (Sohail Sen, Mika Singh, Sharib-Toshi, Milind Gaba and Tanishk Bagchi) is lovely and hummable and the background score is fine too.
Editing, by Steven Bernard, is fine and the cinematography, by Vikas Sivaraman, is grand.
Housefull 3: Sau Baat Ki Ek Baat
As relaxed as my review this time, this flick is a fine weekend-watch. I am going with a 3/5. Enjoy.
