Ghanchakkar Reviews


Ghanchakkar Movie reviews

BollywoodHungama 2/5
On the whole, GHANCHAKKAR has splendid performances by its principal cast, but the bland and tedious narrative plays spoilsport. This one disheartens! Read More 3/5
The music by Amit Trivedi deserves a mention. Lazy Lad, Allah Meherban and the title track have what it takes to get you in the mood. Of the talent, Emraan gets his bewildered expression correct. And for fear of losing it, he keeps it going for the most part. Vidya provides a few laughs trying to ape the Punjabi stereotype. Read More 1.5/5
To sum it up, in a bid to make a comedy on memory loss, the filmmaker himself forgets his script. A disappointing fare! Read More
NDTV 1.5/5
Ghanchakkar is strictly for those that are easy to tickle and shock. One character, the one with the gun, sums it up best: “I don't know what is going on and who is taking whom for a ride.” Heed the warning! Read More
IndiaGlitz 2/5
The brilliant performance by Emraan, Vidya and the supporting cast and the first half is the only saving grace.. the movie which was designed to make the audience laugh at its will after a while commits a crime of letting the audience have their last laugh by the end. Read More 3.5/5
Watch it for Vidya Balan, the delicious humour and the suspense. Forgive the rest and you'll have a blast! Read More 2.5/5
Where GHANCHAKKAR falters is in its basic premise - comedy. Only the bank heist with the three masked men manages to elicit a laugh. Towards the end, Gupta veers to the dark world of deceit. That's the confusion. Read More

Ghanchakkar is certainly not the best, but yes, if you are a true Vidya Balan fan, you may take the risk and grab a show ticket at the theatre, else just give it a miss.Read More 2.5/5
Ghanchakkar is doubtlessly a different film from the run-of-the-mill comedies that Bollywood churns out by the dozen. It's wacky, eccentric, laidback and has a twist in its tail. If only its script was taut and humour sharp, this one could have been a cracker of an entertainer all the way. Read More
The cinematographer has caught the beautiful locales of Banares, Aligarh, Delhi and Punjab elegantly. A.R. Rahman's musical score, songs and the background score are lilting and memorable. Overall, the movie is indeed outstanding. A most definite must watch! Read More
BharatStudent 2/5
The first half of the film looks promising and entertains, the interval bang was alright but it is the second half that disappoints with routine sequences. The climax twist could have been much better. Overall, this is a film which came in with good expectations but fails to impress. Read More
