  • Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga

    It seems Chopra-Dhar had a bold idea on the table, but didn’t want to force it down the audience’s throats, and wanted to allow unrestrained and easy-going blitheness do all the messaging. Too bad, its implication of “Live and Let live” backfires, despite its obvious good intentions.

  • Why Cheat India

    If you thought that Soumik Sen’s Why Cheat India comes up with an answer, or at least looks at the aforementioned psychological concerns among children and their behavioural issues that often lead to suicides with grave concern, you’d be disappointed.

  • Bhaiaji Superhittt

    For all its gags and antic situations, this neither comic nor gangster rivalry film, turns into a case of cinema stretchery; the premise can’t fill the requisite time without serious strain.

    ...the film barely manages to keep your interest alive throughout as all the actors show enough lung power to roar beyond their capacity, at times.

  • Fanney Khan

    Right from the word go, for all the lunacy that seems to be going on in this unexciting storyline, it never seems terribly frantic, nor engaging, leave alone entertaining!

  • Dil Juunglee

    The first thing that came to my mind after watching Aleya Sen Sharma’s Dil Juunglee was to question the source of funding for a film that clearly had no clue which way to head, because there’s nothing worse than spending an early morning with a heartbreakingly bad movie.

  • Behen Hogi Teri

    The trouble is this is neither a satire nor a dark comedy. It doesn’t even have great performances to keep your interest alive throughout. By adding many stereotypes, it hammers its point. The end result is disappointing.

    With a premise that could have turned into a rock solid story, this could have been a winner all the way. Sadly, the film attempts, to its detriment, to cover more ground than it can, in its 138-minute runtime.

  • Housefull 3

    ...bawdy jokes, unfunny gags, dull, humourless one-liners — all getting passed off for comedy, that too as they struggle to include jokes on racism and the differently-abled.
