Where did you watch this movie?

Housefull is a romantic comedy entertainer which narrates the story of Aarush - the world's unluckiest man. Being jinxed, he believes his bad luck can vanish if he finds true love. In this quest for true love how one lie leads to another and how different people from different walks of life come together adding even more confusion to this hilarious comedy of errors resulting in total chaos and mayhem forms the crux of the story. The line which Deepika tells Akshay in the film "Jis jhooth se kissi ka ghar basta ho, voh jhooth jhooth nahin hota", pretty much sums up the essence of the film.

Trivia:
The song "Oh Girl You'Re Mine" was composed by Loy Mendonsa and sung by his daughter Alyssa Mendonsa.

When shooting the jump into the swimming pool, Akshay Kumar injured his eardrum. Shooting was delayed while he took recuperative rest for a few days. However, the success of this movie gave him his biggest opening of all time, beating 'Singh Is King'.

The monkey Arush fights with is Tara, a capuchin monkey who achieved fame after starring in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl'. The filmmakers wanted to have Tara in the film and campaigned hard to get her a role.

The sequel of this movie, 'Housefull 2' (2012) was also a blockbuster success.

Despite controversy, the movie was a breakaway success at the box office and also received several awards and accolades.

The film also faced controversy due to the remixed version of the song "Apni Toh Jaise Taise," originally from the 1981 film Laawaris directed by Prakash Mehra, music by Kalyanji Anandji. The Calcutta High Court restrained producer Sajid Nadiadwala from the cinematic use of the song.

The story has also been noted to be copied from Kamal Haasan's 1998 Tamil movie 'Kaathala Kaathala', and a complaint was also filed because the remake was done without permission.

The film was shot over several months in London and Italy.

This movie ended up being Jiah Khan's final film before her death in 2013.
