Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is the cleanest entertainer and deserves to be watched for its high entertainment value.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The Bazmee-Chahal-Janjua-Chawla quartet prove very convincingly that comedies need not always be about slapstick; that there is more to comedy films than vulgar gestures and crass jokes. That clean dialogues, written sensibly, entertain and charm the movie-goers.

  • ...is a complete family entertainer worth every cent of your penny spent.

  • ...is a fine entertainer that should appeal to the family audiences big time.

  • ...you just have to go through this garrulous, laugh-out-loud affair with the usual patience and perhaps even some perseverance that you usually reserve for Bollywood comedies such as this one.

  • ...is so loud, you need ear muffs but quite funny because there is a natural chemistry between the actors Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ratna Pathak Shah and Pavan Malhotra.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...suffers from a strained and predictable plot, its silliness does makes you laugh. So go watch the film if indulging in there hours of escapist comedy is your game...

  • It is indeed paisa vasool and a fun watch.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a happy film which is meant for your entire family. The film will surely get back the era of clean family entertainers.

  • You’ll be occasionally laughing, but probably won’t be leaving the theatre with a big smile on your face.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Fortunately, the humour does not degenerate to crass double entendres. Family entertainment is clearly at the core and Mubarakan manages to deliver enough laughs.

    Critic rating (?)

  • How many Arjun Kapoors are required to crack a comedy? Based on this film, clearly not enough.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • A comedy lives and dies on the strength of its bits, and Mubarakan has a few.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...despite the considerable dip in pace in the second half, Bazmee has delivered to a great extent with Mubarakan. The film does not strain the viewer’s intellect too much yet does not demand that we – to quote a reviewer cliché – “leave our brains at home”.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The rigmarole is enjoyable up to a point but once the idiocy quotient peaks, the overlong Mubarakan goes somewhat haywire. Yet, if it isn't as insufferable as other average Bollywood romantic comedies, a part of the credit goes to the actors.

    Critic rating (?)

  • In the end the film is the same old comedy of errors that we've seen so many times before.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Less tone-deaf humour, more quirks, a shorter running time and a more able younger cast and Mubarakan could have been more delightful.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Post-interval, the film’s funny bone gets lost. It becomes a long, maudlin harangue on family values and good sisters and brothers, while slipping in a few distasteful jokes about wives and women.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Director Anees Bazmee specializes in a genre that I call ‘cinema as lobotomy’.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the cast assemble and disperse when required, pull faces on demand, and try to keep up with the twists that Mubarakan’s writers conjure up at every bend because somebody on the production thought that it was a good idea to have a 156- minute movie about mixed identities.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • If you survive the visual overload of mediocrity, the booming background music playing throughout will leave you with tintinnabulations of dhol, even long after the film is over, constantly reminding you of the torture you’ve endured.
