Ever since the release of Housefull 4 quirky posters, the fourth instalment of India’s biggest comedy franchise has been creating major buzz amongst movie lovers.
Following the launch of the posters, fans took to social media to express their excitement for the film’s trailer.
Considering the massive interest in the Housefull franchise, the makers decided on a unique way to launch the highly anticipated trailer of the film.
The event that took place in Mumbai, India was screened live simultaneously across the world including in Dubai, Melbourne and London.
The trailer reveals the crux of the storyline at the beginning that the reincarnation comedy is set in two time periods: 1419 and 2019.
Then it shifts to the king of Sitamgarh organising for a swayamvar for his daughters.
The king zeroes in on warrior Bala (Akshay Kumar) for Kriti Sanon (Madhu), Bobby Deol (Dharamputra) for Kriti Kharbanda (Meena) and nartaki Bangdu Maharaj (Riteish Deshmukh) for Pooja Hegde (Mala).
The first half also offers menacing glimpses of Rana Daggubati who plays the villain in the film.
The trailer then fast-forwards the timeline to 2019, when Akshay Kumar is introduced as Harry, Riteish Deshmukh is Roy and Bobby Deol is Max.
Akshay Kumar, who can remember the happenings of his past life as Bala, suddenly realises he is engaged to be married to Pooja Hegde, who is Pooja now.
Modern-day Riteish’s love interest in the film is Kriti Kharbanda, who is Neha now whereas the 2019 version of Bobby Deol is in love with Kriti Sanon, who is Kriti in this life.
In a failed attempt, Akshay Kumar tries to explain who’s actually who with reference to 1419 to his friends in a ROFL:
“Uski biwi uski biwi nahi hai… Teri biwi hai…” kind of a lengthy dialogue, which leaves all of us confused but in splits.
