Housefull is a romantic comedy entertainer which narrates the story of Aarush - the world's unluckiest man. Being jinxed, he believes his bad luck can vanish if he finds true love. In this quest for true love how one lie leads to another and how different people from different walks of life come together adding even more confusion to this hilarious comedy of errors resulting in total chaos and mayhem forms the crux of the story. The line which Deepika tells Akshay in the film "Jis jhooth se kissi ka ghar basta ho, voh jhooth jhooth nahin hota", pretty much sums up the essence of the film.Written by
Jacqueline Fernandez featured in the song Apni To Jaise Taise in a special appearance for this film. In the sequel, Housefull 2 (2012) she appeared as one of the supporting actresses and in the third entry in the franchise she appeared as the lead actress. See more »
Arjun Rampal's characters tell Akshay that he cannot fool a lie detector. This isn't true as lie detectors are never 100% accurate and often give incorrect or inconclusive results. See more »

One can't help but feel pity for all the money and resources that has gone down the drain to shape up this awful film. The entire crew & cast enjoyed a royal holiday overseas under the garb of production costs. The director cleverly puts a disclaimer at the very start of the movie that "Housefull" is a tribute to the directors of 70's & 80's hinting the staleness of the product.
The saving grace of the movie is the music. SEL have backed up the product with foot tapping numbers. Background score by Sandeep Chowta is okay'ish. The comedy sequences are completely out of place. And the climax scene which everybody panned - its a straight lift from Charlie Chaplin's "Laughing Gas" only Sajid Khan raped it.
Akshay Kumar:: In a desperate attempt to deliver a hit, his performance is sinking faster than titanic.
Ritesh Deshmukh:: Consistent as ever. Did not have much comedy sequences where he could deliver and showcase his talents.
Arjun Rampal:: No good in comedy and his characterisation was awful especially his polygraph machine.
Lara:: Miscast opposite Ritesh.
Jiah Khan:: The Jekyll and Hyde was badly written.
Deepika:: Only beautiful looks.
Chunky Pande: Was irritating in his Aakhree Raasta character.
If making a slapstick comedy was the intent then Sajid Khan should learn a lot of things from Hollywood. There exists a genre of slapstick & no brainers delivers complete wholesome entertainment. "Housefull" is a by- product of success-gone-over-the-head when a garbage like "Hey Baby" becomes a hit and the director goes on to make yet another bigger garbage. Nadiadwala & Eros, are you listening?
