  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
Films like KAHAANI, TALAASH, also most films helmed by Abbas-Mustan had this uncharacteristic quality of keeping the spectator on tenterhooks till the last frame. A taut thriller demands that the spectator stay vigilant, is all eyes and ears as the story unfolds, becomes a participant while the mind games

  •  Glamsham -Abid Rating-6
Director Aditya Datt rose to prominence with his very first film, AASHIQ BANAYA APNE, which was a surprise hit and it also saw the big time emergence of Emraan Hashmi as music's lucky mascot, and propelled composer Himesh Reshammiya into the top league

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-5
Ironically, Rajeev Khandelwal who was once the host of the reality game show Sach Ka Samna which dealt with the same topic only less brutal finds himself on the other side of the table with this film. And it's only filmmaker Aditya Dutt to be credited for such a casting. Known for his popular Bhatt film

  •  DNA -Anirudha Guha Rating-6
Indian filmmakers – specifically Hindi ones – have always, annoyingly, felt this need to ‘explain’ the story, using pointless dialogues to spell out every last detail about plot and character. In other cases – like Table No 21 – you have what you call the ‘back-story’, a smaller part of the narrative

  •  Koimoi -Roshini Devi Rating-2
Vivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya Agasthi (Tena Desae) have just won a free trip to Fiji. It’s a timely getaway for the couple who are not only in a rough patch due to Vivaan being out of a job, but also because it’s their wedding anniversary. Between the clink of glasses, a certain Mr. Khan

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-3
Towards the end of the film, there's an extended sequence which explains why one of the protagonists behaves the way he has. I watched that expository bit in quite a different frame from the stuff that had gone ahead, because it was done with feeling, and an awareness that had been missing from the film

  •  Rediff -Ankur Pathak Rating-6
If we leave aside a few embarrassing hiccups (read Rajdhani Express) that don't even deserve to be accounted for, 2013 has begun on a hard-hitting note at the movies.Table No. 21, the first genuine release of the centenary year of Hindi cinema is a psychological thriller that ends with a delectable twist

  •  One India -Nabanita Rating-6
The year 2013 starts with Aditya Datt's latest movie Table No 21, that features Paresh Rawal, Tena Desae and Rajeev Khandelwal in the leads. Table No 21 is not a big budget movie, but it has created some buzz for two crucial reasons: 1) Its promising subject and 2) It has been widely publicised

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-4
Table No. 21 is the sort of determinedly silly movie that can make fine actors like Paresh Rawal and Rajeev Khandelwal look foolish.Echoing films as diverse as Oldboy and Slumdog Millionaire, director Aditya Datt creates a reality game show-revenge saga that gathers some steam in the last act

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
It's unlikely you'll come out unmoved by the big reveal at the end of Table No 21, whose deeply disturbing finale delivers a hard punch to the gut. But the problem is, while director Aditya Datt and his writers may have cracked a sure-shot climax, they invest very little in the rest of this sloppy thriller.

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
The line separating the exigencies of middle-class existence from the risks factored into the games that the characters in Table No 21 play is dangerously thin. But so, for sure, is the divide between the truly inspired and the utterly pedestrian.This is a well-meaning film.

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
A Table for two, please? With a stunning view of the Fijiislands, the finest champagne, exclusive service and a lavish 8-course meal. And guess what? It costs absolutely nothing. Now, before you growl with greed, let's see what's on the menu - blood and bravado, love and lies, truth and treachery

  •  Zee News -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-7
‘Table No. 21’ might just be director Aditya Datt’s ticket to fame: fame of the pure, unadulterated kinds. His earlier outings as a director – films such as ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’, ‘Dil Diya Hai’ and ‘Good Luck!’ – weren’t able to make much of an impact on either the audience or critics.
