Batook Patel (Boman Irani) uses word play which falter most of the times and sleepwalks through his role of a Gujrati man which he has played innumerable times in such slapstick comedies.
All 3 girls Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon suited their Characters of glamorous looking Dumbo girls who in order to maintain their Indianness translate English phrases literally in Hindi to evoke laughter which worked at some places and fell flat at other depending on the situation in the movie. However the director gets the casting right with them because of their accented Hindi even in real life plus the requirement of the role is that of Bimbos and hence no need for great acting chops.
Jackie Shroff plays a Stylish dreaded gangster and a doting father with aplomb. Riteish Deshmukh was underutilized. He has been a major asset to previous movies in this franchise. Abhishek Bachchan was decent with his deadpan humor in role of an aspiring rapper.
Chunkey Pandey as Aakhiri Pasta is completely wasted. He was hilarious in first two movies in Housefull franchise.
The standout performance comes from Akshay Kumar who can be easily termed as the one having the best comic timing amongst the current crop of Lead actors. He is shown to be suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder and once he becomes Sundi, he is riot with his walk, the way he talks and the funny expression he maintains with wacky behavior. Akshay Kumar is the heart and soul of this movie.
Sajid-Farhad who are directing Housefull movie for the 1st time have done just about decent job, but they overdo jokes and stretches them killing the impact of the gag or jokes as they did in their 1st directorial-Entertainment as well . Director of Previous 2 movies in Housefull series –Sajid Khan, would certainly have made these gags funnier and crisp.
Overall it's a good time pass flick if one ignores the buildup that took almost 40-45 minutes and is not averse to slapstick comedies. I would rate it 6 plus 1 rating extra for Akshay's superb performance as Sundi.
