DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the Housefull 4 movie deals with the subject of reincarnation? Yes, the film is a comedy film. And according to tons of review sites for movies and as can be seen in the Housefull 4 movie trailer, it is one that uses all possible elements of modern cinematic comedy. This time, however, director Farhad Samji uses a subject so divine as part of a comedic plot. What is more interesting is that 'reincarnation' is a centerpiece of the Hindu religion, which we all know predominates India. Movies about the afterlife and the subject of reincarnation have long been loved in cinema. Films like 'The Matrix', 'Cloud Atlas' and 'The Lovely Bones' are a testament to that. The only difference is that these flicks tend to deal with much more serious plots. This idea of using such a theme in a modern comedy film makes seeing the movie much more interesting. It might still be early to say whether this film belongs to the long list of the best Bollywood movies ever, but early signs point that way.
As of its third-weekend post-release, Housefull 4 has already hit a double century in the worldwide box office. Not to mention that it has also hit the 200 crore mark in India. The Akshay Kumar headliner has recorded the highest single-day box office collection for a comedy film in India. This makes it an instant film sensation and one of India's top-grossing releases of 2019. The film has outdone critic's expectations, as it has been met with comments about its 'dated humor'. People may credit the Housefull 4 cast all they want. Moviegoers also may argue that the film's commercial boom is due to its piggybacking the name of the Housefull franchise. But whether that is a good or a bad thing, there is no argument that the movie is indeed a financial success. The film's fourth incarnation has indeed uplifted the franchise's name. This fits the bill perfectly for a movie that deals with reincarnation after all.
