If your gang of friends say ‘Chalo Bhahar Latakte hi’ (Let’s Hang Out) and it includes watching Sajid-Farhaad’s Housefull 3 then ‘Thandi Waali Dawa Le Lo’ (Take a Chill Pill) because I am sure you will ‘Paal Pos Ke Upar Jaa’ ‘Grow Up’ not to watch the next sequel even if someone points a pistol on your temple. By now you would have understood the lingo used in this funny caper and I am sure you would have gone ‘Akrot’ I mean ‘Nuts’.
Even after watching the first two Housefulls you are still not able to ‘Kaamwaali Gayi Kaamwali Gayi’ (Let Bygones be Bygones) then ‘Naukri Neeche’ (Calm Down) and Taang Uthake (a song in this movie) go and watch this nonsensical film.

Batuk Patel (Boman Irani) an Indian Gujrati business tycoon settled in London has three ‘Maals’ (Daughters) that’s how Sandy aka Sundi (Akshay Kumar) one of the boyfriend of these heiresses address them. The three ‘Maals’ Ganga (Jacquueline Fernandez), Jamuna (Lisa Hyadon) and Saraswati (Nargis Fakhri) according to their Dad are the sanskari daughters but on the contrary they don’t hesitate to party whole night Taang Uthake with their friends. To add more fun, that’s what poor guys (Sajid-Farhaad) believe that they have done, these sanskari girls will bring ill-luck to the family as per Aakhri Pasta (Chunky Pandey) a restaurateur who agrees to be an Astrologer for Batuk Patel to earn quick money. According to Aakhri Pasta the moment the ‘Maals’ join in a holy wedlock that will be the ‘Aakhri Din’ (last day) for their father.

To counter Aakhri Pasta’s planetary warnings and to appease their conservative Dad the bimbettes and their equally dumb boyfriends – footballer Sandy (Akshay Kumar), Car Racer Teddy (Riteish Deshmukh) and a Raper Bunty (Abhshek Bachchan) decides to act as paraplegic, blind, and mute, respectively. Then on, Batuk Patel’s London mansion becomes a house full of fools and liars.
Joining the mad caper is our own Jaggu Dada (Jackie Shroff) as Urja Nagre (an erstwhile Mumbai Don) and unfortunately he doesn’t live up to his name and fails to add any urja (energy) to the already depleting urja of the poor viewers.

In short, Housefull has a poorly written script and also has lowered the quality of the genre the movie claims to be. It’s true that the actors try hard but are in vain and you won’t dare to say that ‘Woh Mere Seb Ki Aannkh hai’ (He is the apple of my eye). Well, if you still want to go and watch Housefull 3, then on your return stop at the roadside eatery Aakhri Pasta at London Rasta to ensure you forgive these ‘Bandook ke Bachche’ (Son of a gun) and treat ‘Kaamwaali Gayi Kaamwali Gayi’ (Let Bygones be Bygones). I am sure you won’t want to remember that ‘Lambi Gaadi Ke Peeche’ (Long time Ago) you saw such a horrible movie.
