The film is a romantic comedy and it revolves around three men Sandy/Sundi (Akshay Kumar), Bunty (Abhishek Bachchan) and Teddy (Riteish Deshmukh). The three men fall in love with the 'oh-so-sanskari' daughters of Batook Patel (Boman Irani), who are 'not so sanskari' in real. Sarah Patel (Nargis Fakhri), Jenny Patel (Lisa Haydon) and Gracy Patel (Jacqueline Fernandez) are the three daughters. Weirdly, Batook is the only father in the world, who doesn't want his daughters to get married. Hotter Than The Hottest! Katrina Kaif's New Bikini Pictures From Latest Vogue Photoshoot! One by one, Sandy, Bunty and Teddy enters the house of Batook Patel as his daughters' boyfriends and then the fun-drama begins. As it's a franchise of Housefull, ' a series of confusion and lies' are an unavoidable part of the story. Now, how the three convince Batook that they are a perfect match for his daughters, forms the crux of the story.

Coming to the performance of the cast, let's say Housefull 3 is solely for Akshay Kumar's fans out there. Akshay Kumar's impeccable comic timing and quirky antics will make for some great gags but not as much as it did in Housefull. So, undoubtedly, Akshay is the only grace about this absurd comedy. Riteish Deshmukh is one talented actor and owing to that reason our expectations from him is always high. His comic timing through the film is exceptional, but there just isn't enough meat in his character to allow him to rise above mediocrity. Abhishek Bachchan, as usual was struggling hard to compete with the comic timing of Akshay and Riteish and ends up boring us with his below average funny antics.

This movie is only for die-hard Akshay Kumar fans!

Bachchan plays an aspiring rapper, who isn’t particularly good at it. It was heartening to see a comedy that made its heroes indulge in some self-deprecating humour. Deshmukh isn’t very convincing as a professional car racer, but fortunately their professions aren’t dwelled upon in this film. The tale of three losers with some nifty get-rich-quick-scheme is one of those films that defies logic. As long as you don’t look for sense in this one, you are safe.

A story in films like these is a myth. It is sheer buffoonery that gets worse with every second, with every joke shamelessly copied from WhatsApp. Watching these films is like being added into those inane WhatsApp groups again and again that you have left multiple times.
