Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

Shaandaar has a fun plot. However in his attempt to spoof destination weddings of the bankrupt and the famous, Vikas Bahl, (who also directed that gem, Queen) forgot to take a script along…

Mid-Day:

What do you call a film that seems so dizzy-headed that it doesn’t know where it is headed, or wait, perhaps so sure of itself that takes a strut towards that forbidden area of superiority complex? It takes two long hours (which feels longer)…

Rediff:

There is such a thing as too much sugar, says Raja Sen. The very idea of cinema as confection is a fine one, for we could all occasionally use a soothing lozenge as an opiate, and some films are meant to shine with candied gloss and a whole lot of far-too-bright frosting…

Glamsham:

Shaandaar, Zabardast, Zindabad. Wish I could have repeated this dialogue from MANJHI to describe this movie. This is neither Shaandaar nor zabardast. It’s just fluff! Ok. Picture this and you just might understand what this movie is all about…
