Akshay Kumar comedy film for Diwali 2019--Housefull 4 has opened to a healthy number on day one of its release in India. The film co-starring Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde raked in Rs 19.08 crore on Friday, which also marked the occasion of Dhanteras in India.
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."
