Mohnish Singh |Oct 25, 2019

“Housefull 4” is the fourth instalment of producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s superhit comedy franchise “Housefull”. The latest part stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol as male leads.

Housefull 4 is in cinemas now. Starring Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde in lead roles, the movie is the fourth instalment of producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s superhit franchise Housefull which began in 2010.

The trailer of Housefull 4 got a great response from the audience. But does the film leave the same impact? Let’s find out.

Story

In 1419, three couples living in the kingdom of Sitamgarh could not meet due to an evil conspiracy. In 2019, almost 600 years later, they reincarnate in London. However, when they meet in their new birth, each one of them is about to marry the wrong person. As ill-luck would have it, they all land up again in Sitamgarh once again. How they find out who is their true love from the past is what forms the crux of the story.

Critical Analysis

When somebody talks about the Housefull franchise, the least one expects from it are rib-tickling dialogues and loads of funny situations creating endless confusion. Unfortunately, the latest instalment of the franchise fails to deliver that. It lacks jokes that give you a belly ache. It lacks punches that make you guffaw. Though the concept of reincarnation comedy sounds pleasing to the ears, what you see on the screen is definitely not much pleasing to the eyes.

Talking about performances, Kriti Sanon has the lengthiest role amongst all the actresses and she does complete justice to it. She looks damn pretty in her regal avatar.

Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde get limited screen time and fail to leave much impact. Riteish Deshmukh in his quirky avatar is fun to watch on the screen.

Bobby Deol is just above average. Akshay Kumar, being one of the most bankable stars of the business, gets a well fleshed out role and he does full justice to it. His comic timing is right, and the actor stands out in every scene.

Final Verdict

Housefull 4 lacks the fun quotient that the previous three instalments of the franchise had. Dialogues are trite, the screenplay is slapdash, and direction incompetent. Only some of the actors manage to extract some laughs from the audience. I am going with 2.5 stars.
