Critic’s Rating

Times of India (TOI):

Get ready to go on a ‘trip’. This one’s rolled up in celluloid – with all the kaleidoscopic colours and hues associated with it. Roy takes you on an orgasm of the imagination, and gives you a treat of visual delight – with all things good-looking. Smooth vintage wheels, stunning studs (horses), Fedora hats and magnificent Malaysia. Of course, the gorgeous lead trio too – striking poses right out of fashion glossies.

Bollywood Hungama:

Suspense-thrillers have always been one of the favourite genres of Bollywood lovers. Add to that some melodious music and you have a winner. This week’s release ROY starring Arjun Rampal, Ranbir Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez have promised the above elements. Will ROY make the cut and become a match winner for its makers and the B-O windows… let’s analyse.

Roy is so tangled in its inflated, erratic ideas of a pseudo mystery that it ceases to make sense even before it takes off, says Sukanya Verma. I don’t know yeh film kaise ban gayi,’ wonders Arjun Rampal in one of the most honest moments of the baffling, boring Roy.

A film lavished with dollops of visual style and aural sophistication, Roy would have been a runaway cinematic delight if only its makers had coupled its impressive surface gloss with a modicum of substance.

It’s hard not to become deeply suspicious and cynical about the movie business when you have watched a film like Roy. Is it really enough that Ranbir Kapoor agrees to make an extended cameo, for a producer to pump money into this boring, amateurish drivel that also happens to be unmistakably pretentious? Did anyone who was attached to the film actually read the script before showing up on set?

A stylish cut above routine B-town musical romantic mystery B-town music czar T-series ‘Roy’ coys from the regulars in its genre and steals with its intoxicating mysterious mix of love, life and sacrifice. Enveloped with charming performances by Arjun Ramphal, Ranbir Kapoor and Jacqueline painting a beautiful debut of Vikramjit Singh as a story teller.

Indian Express:

A snail would be faster than the pace at which we are introduced to the characters. Namely, one number masked thief (Ranbir Kapoor in an extended cameo), who has a thing for expensive art. A filmmaker (Arjun Rampal) with a roving eye and a bad case of block-itis, who bashes away at his typewriter : no, he’s not so poor he can’t afford a laptop– there are many apple-shaped gadgets strewn about in the movie– it’s just, you know, so retro-cool to bash away at actual keys.
