  • Parmanu

    You will get the money shot of Abraham and co walking in slo-mo to swelling background music, enveloped in a comic book feel. You will not get crucial nuance and detail, essential requirements for a film to be to taken seriously.

  • Daas Dev

    The trouble with all these people (a fine ensemble cast), whose questionable actions underline the common belief that all politics is for personal gain and not for the greater good, is that they get shoehorned into an overwrought plot. And its all much too jerky and staccato, never really letting its good parts breathe.

    ...the film is so poorly-written, and so scatter-brained that nothing can rescue it, not even a leading lady who is determined to do something different with her producing heft.

  • Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

    ...provides some laughs, some of which escape involuntarily. But it also leaves you wondering. Can Ranjan grow up his callow characters? Of course, he can, because he has the smarts (remember Pyar Ka Punchnama?). Does he really want to? I’m not sure. Sharp comedy of the sexes is the hard stuff. Cheap laughs are easy.

  • Pad Man

    ...is as worthy, but it isn’t a particularly enjoyable film. It has tonal problems, because it is trying to appeal to many constituencies at the same time.

  • Padmaavat

    You can easily delight in it while the going is good. But nearly three hours of it, and looping rhetoric around what constitutes Rajput valour can and does become tiresome.

  • Kaalakaandi

    Kalaakaandi is a Marathi term for ‘mayhem’, but there’s not enough of it, resulting in the film being more a no-stakes stroll, rather than a breathless roller-coaster.

  • Mukkabaaz

    This is a film whose lack of ostensible polish works to enhance its rough-and-tumble flavor: Kashyap and the film are at its most sure-footed when they are calling out discrimination, across the board. That’s when their punches land in exactly the right place.

  • Tiger Zinda Hai

    I’d enjoyed the first one while it lasted. I had fun in this one too, once I got past the whole ‘Come Children, Let’s Make A Spy Story For You’ explanatory mode of the flick, directed this time by Ali Abbas Zafar.
