Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...despite all the goofs, flaws and clichés, comes across as a decent paisa-vasool entertainer.

  • Lame lyrics, loud gags and leggy lasses never really hurt anyone.

  • ...keeps you entertained.

  • Don't watch Judwaa 2 if you're looking for something deep. But be ready to roll your eyes in several scenes.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a lot of unadulterated old-school fun. Watch it for its brazen humour and Varun Dhawan’s spectacular act.

    Critic rating (?)

  • One should not expect logic or a plot when the film was marketed as a commercial entertainer. Judwaa 2 is strictly for Varun Dhawan fans and a perfect stress buster for families this weekend.

  • David Dhawan comedies scored for their nonsensical dialogue which would invariably rhyme without reason. But the lines here are alternately comic and cringe-worthy. That the veteran filmmaker hails from a period where little attention was paid to the final product, is also evident from the dated style in which this has been shot.

  • The humour is scattered in bits and pieces. Yes such genre requires logic to be left outside the theatre but still the writing lacks originality and when we see those outdated jokes circulated on social media get repeated as a gag in the film, it turns out to be a pot off.

  • ...is meant to be old wine in a new bottle. But this is no ageless wine, and maybe, David Dhawan should have checked the expiry date before making the film.

    Critic rating (?)

  • For a comedy whose plot would make a wafer look thin, the lines have to be razor sharp, and delivered in just the right rhythm. This is where the director falters, even as his son tries his best to give us two for the price of one on the other end of the screen.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...like the original, isn’t a piece of art, in fact it’s mediocre, but it’s that one film which may lift your mood.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is louder and bigger and bolder and Varun Dhawan may not be Salman Khan, but he holds his own, both as Prem and Raja. Fun watch for the younger generation.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...skates on thin ice on occasion, but for the most part passes muster without being earth-shatteringly good anywhere.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Judwaa 2’s balloon of recycled gas soon goes phus and what’s left is tedious buffoonery of the brainless, for the brainless and by the brainless.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The best thing about Judwaa 2 is Varun Dhawan. He has a ferocious sincerity.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Everything about Judwaa 2 – from the treatment to the one-liners – has a distinctly outdated feel to it. But it’s also true that some of the gags work.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • All we have here is a weak cover version.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Leave your brain at the door, they used to say about Dhawan’s films. I did that today, and when I picked it up on the way out, it thanked me.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Dhawan updates the original with some new, contemporary, international scenery but fails to update the attitude for today’s times.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...might work for those that don't mind being sold old trash in a new, garishly painted sack. For all others, it would be akin to being strapped to a seat in a torture chamber.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • Unabashedly silly. Brings a smile or two, even if soulless – that's exactly what you expect though, right?

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film crawls. We feel every second of every gag that falls flat.
