Housefull 3 Movie Review
HOUSE FULL OF GOOFBALLS, HOT GALS AND GAGS!
STORY: London-based, shipping magnate, Batook Patel has three daughters—Gracy (Jacqueline), Sarah (Nargis) and Jenny (Lisa). He won’t let them marry. However, Sandy (Akshay), Bunty (Abhishek) and Teddy (Riteish) fall for these women and their wealth!
REVIEW: If you have seen the two earlier installments of this franchise, you already know that is purely a ‘leave-your-brains-behind’ affair. The premise is a comedy of errors. But unlike Gulzar’s gem Angoor (1982), this one is not about twins. It’s so convoluted, it will make Shakespeare turn in his grave. Sample this. Sandy, who wants to play football in the English Premiere League becomes Sundy (Mr Hyde kinda guy) when his coach makes a racist remark and refers to him as Indian! Ooh; the simple Samaritan becomes aggressive, contorts his face and goes ballistic, till you almost reach out to the screen and say stop- we can’t take this anymore.
The peppy songs—pyar ki maa ki and taang uthake can get you swinging in your seat. There’s also a dictionary that teaches you phrases like– Bahar latakte hain (let’s hang out) Bandook ka beta (Son of a gun) and Thandi dawai le le (take a chill pill), etc. Don’t pull your hair out, there’s lot’s more like this.
One star in the rating is for Akshay who has mastered this genre. Riteish and Abhishek keep pace with him, as does Jacqueline. So if you just want to LOL—go for it!
