Fun In Parts!
3 June 2016 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

The Third Installment in the Housefull Series, 'Housefull 3', is helmed by Writer-Director Duo Sajid-Farhad, instead of Housefull Veteran Sajid Khan. And to be honest, this third part is actually funny in parts, despite some ridiculous jokes. Lock Away Logic & Enjoy This MAD Ride!

'Housefull 3' Synopsis: A father (Boman Irani) doesn't want his three daughters (Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri & Lisa Haydon) to get married. However, their 3 respective boyfriends (Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan & Riteish Deshmukh) show up pretending to be disabled people, in order to gain sympathy from their father as well slurp up all their money. But things take a turn when a Don (Jackie Shroff) interrupts their plan.

'Housefull 3' begins tepidly & honestly, I wasn't laughing initially. But, right after the Leading-Men enter their lady-love's home as the disabled souls, the narrative picks up. However, its the second-hour of this crazy, nutcase comedy, that turns into a laugh-riot. The second-hour, though over populated, is still packed with enough jokes & gags, which do the trick. The Climax, particularly, is hilarious!

Writer-Director Duo Sajid-Farhad package 'Housefull 3' as a slapstick comedy, although some jokes, especially the ones involving the heroines translating English puns into Hindi, are unfunny to the core. But, the humor works in favor of Akshay Kumar's character, who suffers from dual-personalities. There is even a nice twist towards the interval point, which definitely, works. But overall, the Writing could've been better. Of course, I didn't expect 'Housefull 3' to be a comedic gem, but we have heard & read some of the many such jokes on whatsapp long ago. Even the Dialogue, range from hilarious to plain silly. Their Direction, on the other-hand, is passable. Cinematography is decent. Editing could've been sharper. Music by Various Artists, is peppy. Art & Costume Design are good.

Performance-Wise: Akshay Kumar steals the show. His Genius Comic-Timing isn't something that's new anymore, but he portrays the dual-personality driven character, with unbelievable ease. He is undoubtedly, the film's best joke! Riteish Deshmukh is also superb, while Abhishek Bachchan has his moments. Of the ladies, Jacqueline Fernandez leaves a mark. Boman Irani is first-rate, his Gujarati dialect is perfect. Jackie Shroff has a small role, but he enacts it sincerely. Chunkey Pandey returns as Aakhri Pasta & he's enjoyable, as ever.

On the whole, 'Housefull 3' isn't a laugh-riot, but its funny in parts nonetheless.
