What is it about: The film is about a Gujrati Billionaire Batook Patel (Boman Irani) who has taken oath in life that will never get his daughters married. But the daughters end up in relationships and how these lovers tackle Batook Patel forms the crux of the story directed by Sajid-Farhad.
Why it’s disappointing: It’s not that you expect some kind of logic in a film of this genre. But what’s expected is entertainment. The film is deliberately stupid in all sense. A budget of this sort could have used to make 2-3 films of great potential and was wasted just in the name of huge casting. The previous movies from “Housefull” series were quite entertaining and passed by due to that factor. But this one hardly manages to get through even interval.
The comedy is so stale that you feel like puking. In the name of literal translation from English to Hindi one-liners, the actors and the writers test your patience to the core. It just makes you want to put your fist through the screen.
I can’t say even one actor was worthy of their performance. If Abhishek Bachchan continues to be a dufus like this, wonder where his career will go. Ritiesh has become the uncrowned king of mindless comedies. And Akshay Kumar’s buffoonery gets annoying after a while. Boman Irani has been retained for the franchise purpose. Jackie Shroff was utterly wasted in the film.
The ladies in the movie are nothing but the glam dolls with designer clad wardrobe sporting expensive accessories. Acting was ZERO.
The film’s music was average and did not hold up to the previous installments.
What to watch out for: Housefull 3 throws few looney tunes kind of situation which cracks you here and there, but for that you don’t have to visit the theatre just replay the trailer on YouTube. The cinematography was good by Vikas Sivaraman and the best part was the run time which was short and saved everyone.
Verdict: Housefull 3 will not run to full houses, an utter waste of time, money and talents in the name of stupid comedy!!!
