Weekend Watch – Housefull 3

Let me start by saying that Housefull 3 is nothing like it’s predecessors. It’s funny without being vulgar, and you can watch it with your family.

It’s a story of three odd men (Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and Abhishek Bachchan), who have managed to rope in three rich sisters (Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri, and Lisa Haydon) and have planned a blissful future with their lady’s riches. The only hurdle – a father who is determined to not wed any of his daughters.


Every couple has fantastic on-screen chemistry and do justice to their roles. Akshay and Jacqueline take the lead, with Akshay’s meticulous comic timing, hilarious expressions and dialogue delivery, and Jacqueline’s ethereal beauty. She looks stunning throughout, from club to wedding mandap. Her style and beauty statements are a treat, and I enjoyed watching her immensely.


Other two ladies, while gorgeous, pale in comparison as Jacqueline can also act! Nargis and Lisa’s unconvincing dialogue delivery and poker face don’t do much for the cinematic experience. But they do look great. Wardrobe is on point throughout the film.


For once, Abhishek has been sexed up and was a pleasure on-screen. He’s a wanna be rapper, and reminds you of Badshah (in terms of wardrobe only. I love Badshah – honest *hums abi tou party shuru hui hai*). All his rap attempts are hilarious, and you can’t help but sing along. He is all about skater style, hot-off-the-runway sneakers, baggy pants, tattoos and sexy beard. Probably one of his best looks to date – he should totally keep it.


Not many can compete with Riteish when it comes to comedy. He’s hilarious – the kind of person you laugh just looking at. Also, he now sports a man-bun. Yum yum. Wish he had it in the film too.

Man buns are EVERYWHERE!
Man buns are EVERYWHERE!

Jackie Shroff brings in a twist, and is his usual badass self to the movie. What follows is predictable and you would be better off enjoying the on-screen momentum instead of looking for a surprise or meaning to it all.

Housefull 3 delivers two and a half hours of entertainment, with lots of fashionable moments and beauty inspiration. The entire cast is good-looking, which makes up for the drop in acting capacity every now and then.
