Upon release, Housefull 4 received less-than-favourable reviews from critics. However, the critical response to the film has hardly been a deterrent to its box office run. The film earned a total of Rs 19.08 crore on its opening day, and a whopping Rs 87.78 crore during its opening weekend.
Directed by Farhad Samji, Housefull 4 is the fourth installment of the popular comedy Housefull series. The movie revolves around the theme of reincarnation, and follows a non-linear narrative.
In the film, Kumar is seen as Bala and Harry, Riteish Deshmukh plays Bangdu Maharaj and Roy while Bobby Deol's characters are called Dharamputra and Max. Kriti Sanon plays Rajkumari Madhu and Kriti; Pooja Hegde is Rajkumari Mala and Pooja, and Kriti Kharbanda portrays Rajkumari Meena and Neha.
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, in association with Fox Star India, Housefull 4 clashed at the box office with Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar-starrer Saand Ki Aankh, and Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy's Made in China.

Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not a sequel we didn't need. But it's a follow-up that needed much more.
