Fukrey 3 Story:

Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba brings back the gang of four buddies from Delhi and their life's mishaps with Fukrey 3. Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh, Richa Chadha, and Pankaj Tripathi revisit their iconic characters.

Fukrey 3 Review:

A fantastic song that serves as the film's recap begins as the film starts. As a summary of the plots of Fukrey and Fukrey 2, this track makes it simple for us to fast-forward through both movies before beginning Fukrey 3. The song's incredible lyrics depict how things began and how it ended with things getting better for everyone. Since everyone is aware of how Fukrey 2 ends—with Bholi Punjaban (Richa Chadha) rising to the position of local politician and the four buddies Hunny (Pulkit Samrat), Choochaa (Varun Sharma), Lali (Manjot Singh), and Panditji (Pankaj Tripathi) getting a showroom from the MLA to run their businesses legally—it picks up where that left off.


However, even now, everything is not really going to well and, the four friends are struggling with their businesses. Bholi returns to their lives, struggling with her own election campaign and pleading to resume their previous assistance with her. Hunny, on the other hand, has a different idea and chooses to have Choocha contest against Bholi in the election, as he has already gained popularity and believes it will be simpler for him to win. The movie goes on from here.

Fukrey 3 will take you on a fantastic voyage with hilarious dialogues, humorous situations, and,not to forget, the comic timings of the iconic characters that make the film a delightful riot, just like the first two Fukrey movies did. In addition to these, the movie focuses on true friendship and how everyone pulls together when one of them faces a difficulty (and by that, I mean solely Choocha because he is the only one that gets into and causes troubles).

Although Mrighdeep Singh Lamba's direction offers nothing particularly new, the script keeps viewers glued to their screens. A strong social message on water issues is presented well with strong range of emotions. The film takes a very sluggish and emotional turn in the second half, and the laughs get lost in the middle, despite the fact that the first half is incredibly well-written and humorous, like we expect the movie to be. The film becomes somewhat slow in the second half. 


Varun Sharma as Choochaa: Despite being the silliest of all the characters, we are all in love with Choochaa. Let's all agree that Choochaa is the movie's heart since the story would merely be a dull story with a few funny characters. Varun Sharma once again outperforms everyone with his earnest act. The film's high point is his love for his friends, especially Hunny and Bholi Punjaban.

Pulkit Samrat as Hunny: As the Fukra gang's leader, Hunny is the mastermind behind cleaning up all the mess Choochaa creates. Pulkit Samrat once again showcases his charm in what he does with his chiselled body, charisma, and smile.

Richa Chadha as Bholi Punjaban: Nobody—trust me when I say this—can do it better than Richa Chadha when it comes to Bholi Punjaban. The actress does not just get into the skin but into the body of this character, which has become an iconic character only because Richa portrayed it in a way that no one else could. Her prowess as an actress is mindfully shown, including her funnily romantic chemistry with Choochaa.

Pankaj Tripathi as Panditji: Pankaj Tripathi is the icing on the cake, the wittiest, and the funniest. When Tripathi appears in the frame, the sequence is twice as funny simply because of his presence. He doesn't just add a touch of fun; he is the funniest in the gang.

Manjot Singh as Lali: Manjot Singh portrays Lali, who is the most sensible yet naive character. His character demonstrates that even if your buddies are heading to hell, you should still accompany them since they are your friends. He portrays his character brilliantly.

The characters of Dhingra, played by Amit Dhawan, and Chaddha, played by Manu Rishi Chadha, might have been used in such a rich way but were instead rendered meaningless, and it is during these scenes that the movies become slow and dull due to the negligent writing of their characters.

Fukrey 3 Verdict:

Fukrey 3 is a light-hearted film for those who love comedies. It's also a story of friendship that will touch your heart as well as make you laugh aloud.
