- Fukrey 3, has arrived, promising a riot of laughter and slapstick humor
Mumbai(India): The much-anticipated sequel, Fukrey 3, has arrived, promising a riot of laughter and slapstick humor. In this absolute time-pass movie, you can leave your analytical thinking at home and simply relish the comic chaos that unfolds on the screen. While some may lament Bollywood’s continued production of such cinema, Fukrey 3 finds its audience among those who appreciate mindless jokes and crass humor, proving that this genre still has a place in today’s entertainment landscape.
Fukrey 3 is a delightful concoction of humor and nostalgia
Fukrey 3 is a delightful concoction of humor and nostalgia. It offers a high dose of hilarity, especially for fans of slapstick and brainless comedy. The film brilliantly captures the enduring friendship within the Fukrey gang, their endearing camaraderie with Pandit ji (Pankaj Tripathi), their love-hate relationship with Bholi Panjaban (Richa Chadha), and the amusing twists their adventures bring, delivering wholesome entertainment.
Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba adds depth to the characters, enhancing their dimensions. Choocha (Varun Sharma) becomes even funnier, Hunny (Pulkit Samrat) masters the art of mind games, Laali (Manjot Singh) becomes sweeter, Pandit ji remains dependable, and Bholi Panjaban surprises with a softer side to her personality.
The story picks up from where the second installment left off and takes viewers on a whirlwind journey. From coal mines in Africa to an amusement park in Delhi, the plot navigates multiple locations while keeping Choocha at the center of all the action. Fukrey 3 presents a buffet of subplots that prevent any moment of boredom.
However, as the comedy leans heavily on toilet humor, it occasionally falters. While the film’s situations and visuals may induce laughter, the quality of jokes gradually declines from being crass to uninspiring. Despite its fast-paced nature and engaging writing by Vipul Vig, Fukrey 3 could have benefited from cleaner and wittier humor.
In its 150-minute runtime, Fukrey 3 keeps viewers invested in its characters rather than its storyline. The on-screen events are inherently funny, but the reliance on convenient toilet humor may leave you pondering whether the writers ran out of ideas.
While Fukrey 3 briefly attempts to convey a social message, it feels forced and lacks the depth to make a significant impact on the narrative. Nevertheless, the film shines through its outstanding performances. Varun Sharma and Pankaj Tripathi steal the show, effortlessly embodying their characters. Varun’s portrayal of Choocha is exceptional, and Pankaj’s comedic genius shines through.
Pulkit Samrat and Manjot Singh deliver balanced performances compared to the previous installments. Richa Chadha impresses once again as Bholi Panjaban, displaying a remarkable range of emotions and character depth.
Fukrey 3’s music is passable, with notable moments like the use of “Ambarsariya” in the background. The opening track, recounting the story of the previous films through a flashback of pictures, is well-executed.
In conclusion, Fukrey 3 is a lighthearted, entertaining film that doesn’t aim to provoke deep thoughts or ignite conversations. It promises an enjoyable experience and leaves you smiling, or perhaps laughing, depending on your taste for humor. However, if you have a low tolerance for toilet humor, consider this review a fair warning.
