Housefull 3 Verdict: Hit or Flop

Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 3 which was released on 3 June has performed well at the box office.

The film received mixed to negative reviews and there were many doubts regarding the box office potential as only content oriented films were doing well recently. The opening day was average and the growth on Saturday was not that huge. However, Housefull 3 turned the tables on Sunday with a huge jump in all over India. The hold on Monday indicated that it will be a clear box office success.

Another interesting factor was the better performance at multiplexes as compared to single screens. Airlift might have something to do with this. The word of mouth was decent and was labelled as a timepass entertainer by the audience. It also had not much of a competition at the box office.

Housefull 3 was made on the budget of 85 crores has already recovered its cost. The film will be a straight hit. Let’s also take a look at Housefull 3 hit or flop business economics.

Tell us what are your views about Housefull 3 verdict hit or flop in the comments section.


  1. Housefull 3 is a true entertainer .
    I loved every bit of it.
    Akshay rocks.
    Now waiting for Rustom and Mohanjo daro.
    I’m a big fan of Akshay and Hritik.
    Khans r nothing without EDX power.
    Amir last nonholiday release Talash -semi hit.
    SRK -Fan -Flop
    Salman- Jai ho – average
    Only Hritik and akshay can give big hits without EDX power.

  2. I think its lifetime box office collection will be around 115cr and it will be a clean hit. Happy for akki and hope that RUSTOM will also do good business at the box office.

  3. Arena some are saying that the Budget is 92 Crore ..any thought .. on That ?. And once again my Question is the same which you haven’t answered how is your Friend?

    • It will cross 100 crores but not cross the India life time collection of housefull 2 which is 118 crores… 2nd weekend collection 3.6 + 4+ 6 =13.6 2nd weekend total collection 94 cr. Week 2 remaininf days 2 + 1.8 + 1.5 + 1.25 = 6.5 cr. Week 2 total 100 cr. 3rd week mostly out of theatres and can collect max to max 5-6 crs life time more… housefull 3 total life time collection 105 crores…

  4. See @bollywoodarena..
    I had praised for your work recently (updates of occupancy of housefull3 even on 8th day) but now I will ask you that how can you verdict a movie when it was in its 2nd weekend, it might be that movie can become a superhit(although there is no chance to do so) so at that time again you will change your verdict… should verdict a movie when it has atleast completed his half journey(housefull3 will remain in theatres till release of sultan)

  5. if akshay would solo release rustom in diwali without clash , then definitely it would cross 180 crores mark!!!!

  6. dashing RJ BOLLYARENA ke kehne ka matlb h ki HF3 abhi tak 8dino ke collection ke according HIT ho gyi h samjha,pehle pura padh aur samajh liya kar phir kuch likha kar ..

  7. dashing rj it can cross 200 crores mark if it gets solo release, just wait for the next year diwali , robot 2 will cross 400 crores easily

    • bro 100cr krne mein halat kharab hai aur200ki baat krte ho….
      and yes robot2 mein akshay se bada megastar hai usme, akshay uska half bhi nhi……
      phir bhi agar singham aise hone dega to acchi baat hai lekin robot2 se pehle ek aur indian movie 400cr+ kregi name-bahubali 2….

  8. Jai Ho-
    Budget = 65cr
    Collection = 115cr
    Verdict = semi-hit

    HF 3-
    Budget = 85cr
    Collection = 100cr (Expected)
    Verdict = hit

    Bollyarena Team can you please explain how is this possible….I hope you reply b/c as a bollywood site you have to explain what you are say here…waiting for your reply

    • Jai Ho budget:-60+15+45=120cr(P+A+Salman Khan’s fee)
      But Salman Khan had taken the Satellite rights as his fee which was 45+cr.
      So i think its verdict was average because the distributors were in loss,like as in the case of Dilwale.

        • @Dashing RJ,I think Bollywood Arena will stand corrected because if the Housefull 3 touches 100 cr then it will become hit and i think it will cross 100 cr on upcoming Tuesday or Wednesday.

  9. i am shocked with the verdict of bollywood arena as housefull3 budget was 85cr(including pa) and till it has collected only less than 85cr in india and you declare it as bit…… ho gya chord de yaar

    • Not correct method but many sites following this: Any movie 85 C budget 85C+ nett in India is a HIT.

      y b’coz

      in collections satellite,Overseas and Music etc are not added

  10. To be fact Dude film which deserve 100 CR it doesn’t reach its mark movie which doesn’t deserve 100 it’s reaching 200,300,400
    If it comes for real acting
    Movies like : Singham, Dabbang, oh my god,Airlift,Holiday,fan,Fanna ,jai ho ,Bajirao mastani these movies should create and milestone means collection should be more than 200 CR.
    But in India movie like Dilwale,PK,Dhoom 3 ,kick,chennai exp,housefull3 ,grand masti ,jab tak hai jaan ,Don 2, Krish 2 creating milestone what a bullshit public.
    No respect for real work and real acting

  11. Hirtik+Amir– 200 crore in 2 years.. salman+sarukh–200 crore every year…..Akshay–400 crore(3/4 flim) every year.. Akshay entertainment whole year to us in different characters … That’s why he is khiladi or Bollywood…..

  12. I m agreed with all ur views dis robed in comments, but audience are the main focus, so ever gives maximum collection is the best actor.

  13. raja: akshay is my fav hero and housefull 1 and 2 are comedy blockbuster hit. Housefull 3 for akshay given other super hit movie by 100crs culb.
    #Housefull 3 is *blockbuster hit*
