Akshay Kumar's much-awaited film 'Housefull 4' released in theatrical screens on Friday (October 25). Based on the theme of reincarnation, the comedy has an ensemble cast which also stars Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda, Pooja Hegde and Rana Daggubati.
While the film failed to impress the critics, it received mixed reactions from the audience as well. Speaking about the first day box office collections, the comic caper minted Rs. 19.08 crore on Day 1. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#HouseFull4 puts up a healthy number on Day 1... Biz did not grow in evening due to pre-#Diwali festivities... Day 4 [Mon] is extremely crucial, when #Diwali celebrations begin and families throng cinema halls... Fri ₹ 18.85 cr. #India biz. #HF4." (sic). He posted another tweet that read, "Revised: Fri 19.08 cr." (sic)

"#FarhadSamji have destroyed #Housefull4 like anything and it's clearly visible in the second half of the movie. All in all, a big let down by the duo. #SajidKhan is at his best for the part he directed i.e. First Half I guess so. Overall it's an average fair !!" (sic)

"#Housefull4 is a medicore affair, leave your brain at home but wallet in pocket as you might need to visit a psychologist after the movie. A lost opportunity and a sheer nightmarish movie. #Housefull4Review (1.5/5) Still it should enjoy a good opening weekend." (sic)
