Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

Mr. X is watchable and engaging but shows spark in parts. It has a solid story in place, but the sharp twists fail to maintain the consistency of the drama. However, what works in this film is its intention to deliver something different…

Book My Show:

Touted as both Bhatt’s and Emraan Hashmi‘s reinvention, the film has Emraan and Amyra Dastur in lead roles, with Arunoday Singh and Tanmay Bhat appearing in supporting roles. The film wastes no time in setting up the plot…

Mid-Day:

They keep saying, “Everything is fair in love and war”. So hours before their marriage, anti-terror agent Mr Invisible to-be (Emraan Hashmi) and his colleague, Ms Fresh Face (Amyra Dastur) can get away with anything. In the opening sequence itself, Ms Fresh Face diffuses a bomb…

DNA:

A desi attempt to Bollywoodize the 2000 Kevin Bacon film Hollow Man, Mr X is a shoddy gimmick at trying to put together a sorry excuse of a plot to make a 3D film. Emraan Hashmi and Amyra Dastur plays two anti-terrorist department agents whose…

Bollywood Hungama:

The ‘invisible man’ concept has been done in Bollywood quite a few times before. Films like Vijay Bhatt’s MR. X, Kishore Kumar starrer MR. X IN BOMBAY, Tusshar Kapoor starrer GAAYAB and the Shekhar Kapoor directed cult film MR. INDIA have been some of the films done in the past…

NDTV Movies:

Unalloyed gobbledygook: two words are all that one needs to sum up Mr X. But Vikram Bhatt’s flashy film (released also in 3D in case one is interested in third-degree torture) runs for over two hours but does not come up with even two-and-a-half scenes that can pass muster…

The Indian Express:

A valiant officer who is part of an anti-terrorist squad transforms from a flesh-and-blood human to the mysterious Mr X. This is the one line premise on which hangs a two-and-a-half hour film…

India Today:

What is the highlight of a film that has Emraan Hashmi playing an invisible man? Simple: Emraan Hashmi kissing the heroine in an invisible avatar. Take away his face, take away his body, you cannot the kiss away from Bollywood’s Serial Kisser…

Rediff:

Mr X is a stupid, slow mess that could still have been made entertaining with an interesting protagonist, says Raja Sen. What is the worst thing a tacky filmmaker can do?…

Glamsham:

He was Raghu (Emraan Hashmi) for a few reels until he ran into bad men who tried to knock him off after they got him to knock off the Chief Minister. He was saved by the idol of a deity in his pocket given to him by someone who he helped get a job as a computer hacker in the Anti-Terrorist Department…
