Opening Day Collection

The third installment of the successful Housefull series is back with some new faces in the cast and crew all together. ‘Housefull 3’ brings to celluloid a fresh ensemble cast which promises the film to be a joy ride and is one of the most anticipated films of the current time.

New director duo

For the first time the Housefull franchise has new director duo at the helm. The previous two installments were directed by Sajid Khan who allegedly had fallout with the star cast of the film and eventually backed out. So this time around the third installment is directed by Sajid Samji & Farhad Samji who are ideally known as Sajid-Farhad. They have previously worked as writers for various commercially hit films like ‘Singham’ and ‘Singham Returns’, ‘Chennai Express’, ‘Ready’ and ‘Housefull 2’ amongst the others. They have 1 movie under their belt as a director which was ‘Entertainment’ (2014). The film did not flare at the box office. But given the response that the trailer of ‘Housefull 3’ has received, it seems like the brother duo have overcome their last debacle quite well and are ready for a new successful slapstick comedy venture. There have been doubts amongst the masses if the duo will be able to put up to the level where the director of last 2 installments Sajid Khan has left from. But the trailer of the film seems to have rubbished the doubts and everyone is anticipating for the film to release soon.

Star Cast

Housefull 3 does not only have a new director duo but also has new casting. For the first time Abhishek Bachchan will be starring in ‘Housefull 3’ who was last seen in ‘All Is Well’ (2015) which did not do well at the box-office. Irrespective of this Abhishek had starred in ‘Happy New Year’ (2014) which became one of the highest grossing films of all time and also was Abhishek’s talent recognized for his comic timing. Alongside Abhishek Bachchan, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon will be seen in Housefull 3 for the very first time. Lisa was last seen in ‘Santa Banta Pvt Ltd’ (2016) was a dud at the box office. Given her new and short career Lisa has garnered loads of acclaims for her supporting role in ‘Queen’ (2014) alongside Kangana Ranaut. Lisa is yet to make a mark as an actress with a comical role and seems to have got a great platform through ‘Housefull 3’. Nargis Fakhri was recently seen in ‘Azhar’ which has become a hit at the box-office. Although her acting wasn’t appreciated much in the film, she still is regarded as one of the leading ladies of the industry. Nargis who made her debut back in 2011 through ‘Rockstar’ alongside Ranbir Kapoor made a mark of her own instantly. Since then she has done films like ‘Madras Café’ (2013) and ‘Main Tera Hero’ (2014). While her serious role in ‘Madras Café’ was very much appreciated, she did a commendable job in the Varun Dhawan starrer comic flick, ‘Main Tera Hero’. Jacqueline Fernandez has starred in ‘Housefull 2’ and now she is in the third part as well. She is regarded as one of those actresses of the industry who have shot to fame with some hit movies in her kitty. having shot to fame with ‘Kick’ (2014) alongside Salman Khan, she is one of the most popular actresses of Bollywood. Along with the aforementioned star cast, the film also has Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff who will be playing very important roles in the film.

Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar is currently one of the successful actors of Bollywood. Akshay Kumar was last seen in ‘Airlift’(2016) which was the first commercial and critically acclaimed hit of the year 2016. He also has various hit films under his belt in a very short span of time and is known for the quality of acting he does on screen. Not only famous for his serious roles, he has established himself as a comic capper from a very long time. Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh are the two consistent faces that have been in the all the installments of the Housefull franchise. Having someone like Akshay Kumar in your star cast is always a pleasing factor for the makers and can s certainly grab the masses to the theatres.

The transition of Ranjit Katiyal of ‘Airlift’ to a split personality character of Sandi/Sandi in ‘Housefull 3’ will be worth watching. What makes ‘Housefull 3’ is that during the promotions of the film, Akshay Kumar has already declared that the critics are going to fire him for his role in ‘Housefull 3’, because of the plot of the film.

Talk of the town

A slapstick comedy with a great star cast is always the talk of the town. One would have been amazed if this was not the case with ‘Housefull 3’ because it certainly is. The star cast has been promoting the film to the very extent possible which seems to be working for the film. The previous two parts were a huge commercial success but critics had given both a thumbs down. The third part is also on the same lines and the star cast has been open about the same. All these things have been perfectly falling in place for the film and should make the producers happy about the same. This slapstick comedy produced by Sajid Nadiadwala seems to have the all the elements to become a hit film with its number 3 factor of three actors, three actresses and is going to hit the theaters on 3rd of June.
