The thing with franchise films is that there’s already an expectation meter running even before you see the film. You know the kind of genre it is, the plot and so on. Housefull-4, as the title suggests, is the fourth installment in the franchise.
When the announcement of the project was made many months ago, there was a huge buzz, primarily due to a wild claim made by its makers: It was touted to be a reincarnation comedy, apparently a first-of-its-kind in Indian cinema. Ultimately, that’s the only novel thing in an otherwise mindless comic caper that not only tests your intelligence but also your patience.
The film starts in 2019 with three brothers Harry (Akshay Kumar), Max (Bobby Deol) and Roy (Ritesh Deshmukh), who are in love with Neha (Kriti Kharbanda), Kriti (Kriti Sanon) and Pooja (Pooja Hegde) respectively. Once in a while, Harry endures lapses in memory and also sees flashes of his previous birth, and these events disturb him relentlessly. Nevertheless, the three couples are set to marry at a destination wedding in Sitamgarh.
