Housefull 3 vs Toilet Ek Prem Katha: Akshay’s better role

A Potpourri of Vestiges Feature

Action, comedy, romance, drama, sci-fi, antagonist, protagonist, you name it and he’s done it. Akshay Kumar is probably the only superstar who has given mass masala entertainers as well as character-oriented movies to his audience. The actor has had 11 straight hits to his credit since 2019, with three films in 2019 itself- Kesari, Mission Mangal and Housefull 4. Most of his movies make it into the 100+ crore club within a few weeks of release. Whether it’s Housefull 3 movie or Toilet Ek Prem Katha, the actor is constantly reinventing himself and offering something new to his fans. Also, most of his films are family entertainers, which is what works amazingly well for his films. Though, he’s been doing a lot of movies with a social message attached to them, the inclusion of Housefull 3 film in his career graph, only goes on to prove that the versatile actor is not shying away from breaking the pattern. 

Let’s review two of Akshay’s highest grossing films in the past couple of years - Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Housefull 3.

Toilet Ek Prem Katha is the story of Keshav (Akhay Kumar) and Jaya (Bhumi Pednekar) whose marriage is on the verge of a break-up because Keshav’s house doesn’t have a toilet. This film, made at a budget of Rs 24 crore, garnered more than Rs 118 crore at the ticket window. Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, the film’s focuses on the problem of open defecation in India through a humorous tale.

If you plan to watch Toilet EkPrem Katha online, you’d enjoy it for the following reasons:

1. Social issue: The film has a strong social message that clearly picks from Prime minister Narendra Modi's campaign of Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan. In that sense, Toilet EkPrem Katha is quite clearly not a typical Bollywood film, but has a larger message to convey.

2. Local humour: The film includes a lot of hinterland humour that appealed to the masses.

3. Patriotism element: The element of patriotism in Akshay Kumar's recent films such as Airlift, Rustom and Baby could not be missed. This film carries a similar vibe. The performances of the supporting star cast are phenomenal, too.

Housefull 3 movie on the other hand, is an out-and-out, masala comedy flick which encourages viewers to leave their brains behind. While the highlight of the entire Housefull franchise lies in its ensemble star cast, Akshay Kumar stole the show with this comic timing and energy. He does more than contorting his face, and actually makes quite an impact with his performance, as Sandy and Sundi. If you watch Housefull 3 movie online, you may find quite a lot of funny moments in the film where his acting prowess comes to the limelight. Let’s just keep aside the racist and sexist jokes in this movie though.

Our verdict? Well, considering the fact that the genre and plot of both the movies were so different, Akshay Kumar aced both the roles equally well. So, which movie are you planning to watch on Idea movies & TV app?
