That quest takes him to some of the country’s rougher patches, where Roger follows in the footsteps of the poor, the desperate and the borderline criminal, gradually unraveling the tangled circumstances of how he came to be adopted by a white Canadian couple.
Unable to speak Hindi, he is met with hostility by non-English speakers, by locals who may have something to hide and with chilly reluctance by Subash Uncle (Ravi Khanvilkar), the one Indian willing to offer him a mattress on a floor (“Everyone in India is either an uncle or an auntie – whether they want to be or not.”).

In the last few years, every time Akshay Kumar had a release immediately after the Indian Premier League, the annual cricket tournament, it became a hit at the box office. After the super successful Rowdy Rathore (June 1, 2012) and Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty (June 6, 2014), this year, the superstar is ready with a laugh riot, Housefull 3, that opens in cinemas after the cricket tournament ends.
Ever since the release of the trailer and the songs of the film, the buzz generated by the movie has been really good.
