‘Housefull 4’, the most awaited film of the festive season 2019 released in theatres on 25 October 2019. The film released during the Diwali holiday break to cash in on the festive vibes.
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Fox Star Studios and directed by Farhad Samji, ‘Housefull 4’ is a funny story about the reincarnation of 3 couples who’ve existed in two times zones – 1419 and 2019. Much like the first three instalments of the ‘Housefull’ franchise, the three boys fall in love with three filthy rich sisters.
The boys try every trick in the hat to convince the father-in-law, played by Rajneet for their rishta. The boys only hope to succeed because the wealthy ladies are their only chance to pay the hefty debt they owe Michael Bhai (Sharad Kelkar). The multi-starrer comedy film also features Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in pivotal roles alongside the Khiladi Kumar.
The makers of ‘Housefull 4’ left no stone unturned to promote the film to the masses. They literally went all out with the train wrapping and media train journey from Mumbai to Delhi with the star cast. The film was extensively promoted on social media and radio channels with Akshay Kumar’s now-viral #TheBalaChallenge. Besides, the much-loved film was in the news (not for best reasons tho) when Director Sajid Khan was accused during the #MeToo movement.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, here’s a quick round-up of the much-hyped film of the year. Did fans laughter their hearts out or cringed at the sexist jokes?
#Housefull4 is a mad comedy. G**d faad fun. @akshaykumar is a master of expressions and single handedly makes you laugh like crazy. @iamjohnylever is outstanding. @NGEMovies @WardaNadiadwala Sure Shot Hit

The movie is not a laugh-riot. Director has tried very hard to force a laugh, but fails to bring out even a smile. The first half is very boring. The second half starts with entertaining portions, but the excitement takes a back seat as it proceeds.

A situational comedy with alot of Fun… Relatable premise, clean humour, foot tapping music, loads of entertainment… Superb climax… @akshaykumar top notch, @Riteishd damn good. Recommended! #Housefull4Review pic.twitter.com/ytREpsgYZV

One Word: HILARIOUS!
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐#Housefull4 is a 'silly – comedy'. @akshaykumar slays his character as usual. Great acting, top notch casting. Good for one time watch. According to me H4 must cross 100 crores.

Wtf Akshay Kumar? Just 30 Mins into the movie & there's loads of Forced comedy & idiotic scenes. Easily going to be the Worst movie of the year. #Housefull4Review

The audience reaction seems to swing between hilarious and outrageous. The film is definitely loaded with sexist comments, ‘typical Bollywood jokes’ and non-sense plotline but on the bright side, the film is a no-brainer entertainment for your Diwali holiday break. The audience is advised to leave logic, rationality and analytical thinking behind as they step into the theatre to watch one hundred and forty minutes of Aksay Kumar’s ‘Bala’ steal the show one more time.
