I don’t know how many of you remember this :
The first installment of Housefull was released in the year 2010 directed by Sajid Khan and was a remake of the tamil film Kaathala Kathaala.
Verdict : it generally received negative reviews from critics but was declared a super hit.
The second installment : Houseful 2 was released in the year 2012 directed by Sajid Khan and was a remake of the tamil film Banda Paramasivam.
Verdict : It generally received negative reviews from critics but was declared Super hit.
Now , the third installment of Houseful : the most awaited film Housefull 3finally releases ….It is illogical, stupid, brainless..but I quite enjoyed it-)
The movie revolves around the story of a father who doesn’t want his three daughters to get married. How three men try to convince him and marry his daughters forms the crux of the movie…There is a twist towards the end.
But this premise is hardly the interesting part of the movie. It’s the dialogues.
Women, the physically challenged and black housemaids are constant butts of ridicule for the writers.
The dialogues are hilarious as they have incorporated the literal translations of the lingo – Chalo bahar latakte hain (Let’s hang out), Thandi waali dawa le lo (Take a chill pill) – When Jacqueline talk about staying away from the limelight, we’re told, “Nimbu ki raushani se door raho”. Or when Nargis begins a story saying, “Lambi ghadi ke peeche” instead of long time ago,there’s plenty that will make you smile.
Then there’s Akshay’s split personality act which begins by hearing the word ‘Indian’– Sandy and Soondy
Though Housefull 3 does maintain the same crackling energy of the previous installement, and keeps the momentum going.
This third installment, introduces Abhishek Bachchan who brings his own brand of funny.
Abhishek has worked in comedy films like Bol Bachchan etc. So, the funny style isn’t new to Junior Bachchan.
The first half of the film keeps viewers engaged with some comedy scenes, but the second half has a slow-paced narration,repetitive which appears boring.
However, the climax is good which is staged in a wax museum warehouse strewn with models of Jackie Chan, Rajinikanth, Barack Obama, Cristiano Ronaldo which is genuinely amusing.
Apart from the 3 heroines Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon the male actors have done a decent job Right from Boman Irani ,Akshay Kumar Ritesh Deshmukh Abhishek Bachchan, Jackie Shroff Chunky Pandey Their comedy timing and sparkling chemistry are the highlights of the movie.
Housefull 3 has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under his banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment and it has rich production elements. Music, picturization, punch dialogues, selection of beautiful locales and great costumes.
Houseful3 is brainless, stupid, illogical…but hilarious and lots of fun-) entertainment guaranteed. Worked for me
