Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...lacks is a dramatic core to keep its many arcs in check.

    Critic rating (?)

  • A thriller devoid of any sort of pressure, falls flat and thus feels never ending. Solid writing would have done wonders for a film like this that had the potential to be gripping.

  • Chaudhary gets the milieu, lingo and the social nuances and hierarchies right and has a fabulous ensemble of actors, some in smaller roles, but the film doesn’t hit a high note.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The writing goes from being focussed to being all over the place. In effect, the balance of the film isn’t right. It’s too intense in some areas and playful in others.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the film attempts to ‘expose’ the manic mayhem and desperate measures that some adopt to clear competitive entrance tests for engineering, medical and management courses. But what it actually manages, is a scramble of fickle ploys, predictable scams and obvious turns.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...lays all its cards on the table in the first act itself: the follow-up is over-long and tedious. And, barring a few sharp moments, flat.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Whatever restraint or spark Setters demonstrated in its initial stages is tossed out of the window to crash into an untidy mess of snarling evil and tame virtue.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a Neeraj Pandey movie directed by someone else (Ashwini Chaudhary), one that features Shreyas Talpade and Aftab Shivdasani in place of Akshay Kumar and Manoj Bajpayee.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has a lot going for it. In its execution though, it does not quite add up.
