Critic’s Rating

Times of India (TOI):

MSG is an indescribable mind-numbing experience. It’s so unapologetic in nature that it renders you speechless. As you watch the saint revel in his fantasy-filled heroics for over three hours, strutting in atrocious clothing and modified cars, you are appalled by his narcissism. Yet, for some strange reason, you choose to tolerate his self-indulgence, hoping to decode his psyche.

Rediff:

MSG, formerly known as Messenger Of God and now retitled as The Messenger (one of the options for the title indeed was “MSG The Son Of God”), might be a theatrical release but this can, by no means, be called a piece of cinema.

NDTV:

Unbridled messianic zeal is the driving force behind MSG – The Messenger. The 200-minute film is a one-man show. That one man is a bundle of energy for whom nothing is impossible. This terribly turgid film is a platform for Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh to demonstrate his versatility to his flock. He has written the film, co-directed it with Jeetu Arora and co-produced it.

Indian Express:

Koi kehta hai sant, koi kehta hai farishta, koi kehta hai guru, koi kehta hai bhagwaan, par hum toh hai sirf ek Insaan!’ With this declaration, at which thunderous applause ensues amongst the genuflecting ‘bhakts’ in the tiny South Delhi auditorium, ‘The Messenger Of God‘ starts ticking off his list. Drugs? Dhishoom. Alcohol? Dhadaam. Bald baddie speaking bad English out to assassinate him? Bang bang.
