Housefull 3 box office collections: This Friday’s release is the third instalment in the Housefull franchise. Reports suggest that Housefull 3 has got off to a decent start with the occupancy rates being pegged at a steady 35%.
Housefull 3 features an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon and Nargis Fakhri promises to be an entertainer, but that is not something that the critics will tell you – they have panned it roundly.
What remains to be seen is whether the audience, which is the ultimate deciding factor, trusts its instincts and ventures into theatres to lend thefilm their patronage or will the not very positive critics reviews play spoilsport.
On the whole, though the business of Housefull 3, which enjoys a solo release, is expected to be good, the film will have to rely on good word of mouth, though.
Having said that, Akshay Kumar on his own is a very saleable star and he can make a film successful on his own. That he has a number of stars backing him in the form of Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh along with the female stars, together makes for a compelling mix.
