There is a type of comedy in Bollywood where nothing makes any amount of sense, no matter how hard you try. This type of comedy usually involves Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh, either together or individually, and has a group on long-legged ladies opposite them. Although this movie claims to be the third part of the famous Housefull franchisee, the movie has absolutely no connection to the previous two movies whatsoever and you could easily pass it off under a whole new name without anyone realising the difference. Batook Patel (Irani) is a wealthy businessman who lives in London with three beautiful daughters, Ganga (Fernandez), Jamuna (Haydon) and Saraswati (Fakhri). He believes that his daughters should never get married since the women in his family are cursed. The girls, however, have their own respective boyfriends and wish to get married to them. Ganga is with Sandy (Kumar), Jamuna is with Teddy (Deshmukh) and Saraswati is with Bunty (Bachchan). When Batook learns of their boyfriends, he goes to Akhri Pasta (Pandey) and makes him come as a fortune teller who gives fake bad omens to each of the three daughters. Determined to not let this come in their way, the three couples hatch an outrageous plan to overcome the prophesy and convince their father to let them marry. The movie is probably way worse than it sounds here. The acting is absolutely horrible, especially for the three long-legged women, all of whom can barely speak Hindi without an accent and look way too rigid and plastic-y throughout. Boman Irani was probably the only person actually did justice to his role but not by a very margin either. Please do not consider watching this movie and if you actually do, then don’t say I didn’t warn you.

 

Thumbs up: Boman Irani was the only saving grace

Thumbs down: Characters and jokes were forced into the movie to show some relevance to the frachisee

 

Rating: 4.1/10
