Fails to impress the audience. 

'Housefull 3' is a romantic comedy movie starring Akshay Kumar,Abhishek Bachchan, Ritiesh Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon. It is the third installment in the Housefull series; directed by Sajid-Farhad.

The plot revolves around three men who try to convince a father, who doesn't want to get his daughters married, that they're the best match for his daughters. How they convince him is the gist of the movie.

One good thing about the movie is that the directors have maintained the same principle of nonsense since the first movie. The type of humour used is either slapstick or one liner, both of which unfortunately fail to entertain after a while. Apart from this, Akshay Kumar saves the day. His comic timing and performance is worth watching. Ritiesh Deshmukh's character doesn't do justice to his acting abilities.

The storyline is full of loopholes. The movie could have been called Nonsensical Confusion Personified. What's disappointing to see is literally seeing the full movie because of such poor editing. One would expect more from such a glamorous star cast and director set. The climax might take you aback and the wrapping up will be your favourite bit of the movie. The music includes a few groovy party numbers with upbeat music. The location and the music do right. All the three actresses, though beautiful to look at, aren't given strong roles. The dialogues are petty jokes that make you roll your eyes almost every minute.

In all, if you laugh at almost anything, you could go watch this movie. Or if you worship Akshay Kumar or have really nothing to do and can bear some Bollywood cliché, go watch it.
