  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-3
Rajdhani Express has a thought-provoking premise but the execution fails miserably. The film aspires to raise grave questions about the current scenario of our society at large and immoral tendencies of people but all of that gets overshadowed by poor editing, over-the-top performances

  •  IBN Live -Rohit Vats Rating-2
Ashok Kohli tries his best to open the film at a promising note but all efforts go in vain due to careless writing. It's not like that the story or the characters were not given their backstories but somehow the director failed to bring them out properly on the celluloid.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-3
The movie industry's romance with train travel is too well known by now. Images of private cabins/compartments, tasteful dining cars/coaches and railway platforms/stations cross your mind as you fondly recall several Hollywood and Bollywood movies.

It is impossible for me to process how this works.And it probably is beyond the realm of human comprehension to understand the rationale that goes behind funding these kinds of films.There has to be a definite motive, and at times like this, it isn't very obvious -- like to shame the Railway Ministry

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravathy Rating-4
Rajdhani Express is a film that will come and go faster than the titular superfast. The film is billed as a suspense thriller set against a backdrop of realism but it barely has a story. It neither has the imagination to thrill, nor does it reveal any inclination to understand the criminal milieu it aims

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-1
There are a lot of stories that go wrong, that don’t play out the way the director conceives it, that has drawbacks that pull down the pace of the film but this one is so disjointed and incoherent that it makes you wonder what was Ashok Kohli thinking when he decided to make ‘Rajdhani Express’.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-5
We cannot call this film preachy but it surely works on those lines. The narrative is adhesively strong but the actors fail to deliver as courageously. The characterization might seem picked up from a narrow repertoire of ideas and the events depicted have been seen before.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-0
Why you should not watch RAJDHANI EXPRESS 
1) There is no story. 
2) The acting is abysmal. 
3) The narration is jerky, sketchy and patchy. It keeps moving back and forth with no rhyme or reason.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
How would you feel if you are shoved into a room full of annoying and unwanted people with no room to escape? Suffocating right? That's exactly how we felt while being witness to a train compartment occupied with actors ranging from horrid to atrocious.
