Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the opening day figures of Housefull 4 in a tweet as he wrote, "#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 ₹ 19.08 cr. #India biz. #HF4."

As per earlier figures by Taran, it is clear that Akshay's Housefull 4 has recorded the lowest opening among his other films in 2019--Kesari and Mission Mangal. While Kesari earned Rs 21.50 crore on the first day of its release on Holi, Mission Mangal collected a massive Rs 29.16 crore on day one on Independence Day. Apart from the evening festivities, one of the reasons for a lower opening could be competition from Taapsee Pannnu-Bhumi Pednekar's Saand Ki Aankh and Rakummar Rao-Mouni Roy's Made in China. Down south, Vijay and director Atlee's Bigil proved to a competition for Housefull 4 as well.

In his review for Housefull 4, News18's Rohit Vats wrote, "But the well of jokes dries after a while and the same gags keep repeating. Had there not been Akhay Kumar, it would have become a really painful watch. It’s funny in parts but can’t hold attention for fifteen minutes straight at any juncture."
