Akshay Kumar's comedy drama "Housefull 3" opened to mixed response from the audience on June 3. However, Bollywood celebs who watched the film at special screenings praised Sajid-Farhad's film on social media.

The light-hearted romantic comedy stars Akshay, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri, Boman Irani, Jackie Shroff and Lisa Haydon. While celebrities praised the movie, critics were not impressed with it.

The film, in general, has received mixed reviews as it has a few entertaining and comic elements, but according to critics, it is a mindless comedy drama. The third instalment of the franchise was a much-awaited flick, considering the success of "Housefull" and "Housefull 2." But, it seems Sajid-Farhad have failed to impress with this one.

The first two instalments of the trilogy were directed by Sajid Khan, but "Housefull 3" has been directed by Sajid-Farhad. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, the film features Boman Irani in a pivotal role. "Housefull 3" made headlines when its trailer was released in 100 Indian cities as a treat for fans. The trailer gave a glimpse of the comic timing of Abhishek, Riteish, Akshay and Boman, while the actresses stole hearts with their glamour.

Meanwhile, Bollywood celebs have praised the comedy flick and posted their reviews on social media. Take a look at the tweets here:
