Housefull 3 Review by Taran Adarsh, Komal Nahta- Housefull 3 Rajeev Masand, Anupama Chopra, KRK Review

Housefull 3 is a comedy film directed by Sajid-Farhad. It has an ensemble cast including Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon in the lead roles. It if the first biggie of 2016 having universal appeal. We are expecting a decent entertainer with a solid dose of comedy. Let’s move on to Housefull 3 review to find out if it lives up to the expectations.

There is one positive aspect about the script that it is kept clean mostly. But the makers actually failed to understand that only dialogues cannot help the film to move forward. There are plenty of long-running jokes being used in the film. The plot is senseless and full of loopholes. The scenes are done in a very bad taste, to say the least.


In the first half, the film still attempts to be enjoyable despite having so many lame sequences. The second hour was more horrible than its first. You should be dumb enough to question logic here. The humour is so lazy and repetitive that even Sajid Khan’s films look much better in comparison.

The film starts with a beautiful aerial shot of Big Ben, London Eye and we know the setting. But that is not enough. The text rolls out on the screen- L.O.N.D.O.N. Thanks for telling. I would have never guessed. And if that was not enough, we see three men commit a major robbery wearing masks painted in English flag colours. Yes, dearest Sajid, Farhad, I have an IQ of a tortoise. Sorry. Can you please tell me which city your movie was shot in?


Every character has a strange way of humour. Riteish Deshmukh’s character has a silly way with words too. ”Will you be my tawaiyaf…oops, I mean wife?” Or “Aap mera nirodh karenge…matlab virodh karenge.” And then there was some solace as Jackie Shroff and his swag appeared on the big screen. Alas, solace hung itself to death as Jackie Shroff spoke. ATM- aaj tujhe marunga. BMC- bagal mein churi. No wait. How old is the writer of the film? 6? Sorry, my bad. I assumed the film has a writer.
