Housefull series. It is not that I don’t have sense of humour, but comedy genre
has never impressed me. Probably I am yet to watch a good film from this genre.
Housefull 3 also fails to generate any laughter. I wish, I could laugh, but the
film is full of mindless humour. People who love comedy genre have also
mentioned that the prequels were much better. I may not sound passionate at all
while sharing my review about this film. I am sure, there is tremendous scope
in our film industry to come up with genuine comedy flicks.
with a robbery scene followed by the police officers arresting three thieves
(Samir Kochchar and two others). Then the frames move to a NRI businessman Batook
Patel (Boman Irani) settled in London, who proudly says that he loves his all
the three daughters Ganga, Jamuna, Saraswati (Jacqueline, Lisa, Nargis
respectively) and would never married them off. The logic behind his saying so
is astrological; he is being conveyed that he would die the moment a son-in-law
steps in their house, or a son-in-law looks at him or a son-in-law utters to
him. Ganga, Jamuna and Sarswati try to find their own solutions for the same by
asking their respective boy-friends Sandy / Sundi (Akshay Kumar) to act as a
person confined to wheel chair, Teddy (Riteish Deshmukh) to act as a blind
person and Bunty (Abhishek Bachchan) to act as a mute person. All three come to
meet Batook Patel, ask his daughters’ hands and end up staying in their house. It
doesn’t need mention that the boys were eying the property of the girls. Rest
of the film revolves around the situations generated to safeguard themselves
from Batook’s eyes and also to win him over.
plays the role of a gangster Urja Nagre. What is the connection between him and
Batook. Who are the three thieves shown in the beginning of the film? Whether
Sandy, Teddy, Bunty are able to marry their love interests? How many of the
people are claiming Batook’s property? How does Batook handle his girls’ love
interests? Does he yield to them? How does the real picture come into play? What
chaos is created as the film unfold?
problem with the script of the film. Is it required to make a mockery of the handicap
/ disability to generate sense of laughter? The song ‘Taang Uthake’ and
choreography is aweful. Girls’ dialogues translate the English phrases
literally into Hindi, gets repetitive and lacks humour.
cast and crew is concerned, indeed Akshay, Riteish and Abhishek are good with
the comic timings. I liked Riteish of the three. Girls don’t have much to do.
Music is average.
3 at your own risk. I don’t recommend this film, but if you just want to watch
and forget a film, please go and watch this film, which has just a few scenes of laughter.
