Housefull 4 Box Office Collection Day 1: Akshay Kumar’s Film Earns INR 19 Crore on Opening Day

Housefull 4 finally hit the screens on the pre-Diwali weekend, opening with approximately INR 19 Crore on Friday, 25th October. As per a report on Box Office India, Housefull 4 emerged as the second biggest comedy opener of all time after Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again, which had opened with INR 30 crore around Diwali 2017. Film trade analyst reported on Twitter, “#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.”

However, he gave the film a 1.5 star rating, calling it disappointing and wrote, “Tries too hard to make you laugh, but fails miserably... Bad writing, terrible direction, over the top performances... Weakest film in #HouseFull franchise. #HouseFull4Review.”

With people occupied with Diwali festivities, it remains to be seen how the film will fare on Sunday and during the week. Previous films which enjoyed a good response during Diwali include Krrish 3, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay. Housefull 4 has been released alongside other highly-anticipated films, including Rajkummar Rao’s Made in China and Bhumi Pednekar-Taapsee Pannu starrer Saand Ki Aankh.
