  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-4
The setup is intriguing enough to name the mall 'Amity', remnant of the small town terrorized by a Great White Shark back in 1975 (Jaws). For a change, there are no vengeful witches (close enough), religious voodoo, Victorian castles, rapist ghosts or Vikram Bhatt.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-5
I am not a big fan of horror films because fear isn’t exactly my idea of enjoying a movie. There indeed are better ways to amuse myself over the weekend than getting scared. But for many who enjoy it, this flick is just another one of the horror staples.

  •  Book My Show -Juhi Matta Rating-4
Things are looking up for horror movies. The genre, which peaked in Bollywood in the ’70s, has since seen a downfall. However, with the release of flicks like 2008′s Phoonk and 2013’s Horror Story, horror might just be seeing a revival. The latest director to explore this genre is Pawan

  •  Bollywood Hungama - Rating-4
Gone are the days when the terms 'horror' and 'scare' only meant masked and scary faces, courtesy the prosthetics that was made famous by the Ramsay brothers. But that was in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Circa 2000. The same terms now mean forceful background music and state of the art vfx.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
I am very scared of horror films. I was all set to see this one from under my chair, or making a lattice with my fingers and peering through. And Darr @ the Mall did give me a couple of jumpy moments. But at no point did I feel like diving below, or closing my eyes.

  •  Bollywood Life -Namrata Thakker Rating-5
It’s easy to figure out what director Pawan Kriplani’s latest offering is all about just by the title of his film. Yes, it’s about a haunted mall which is apparently the largest one in the Asia. There have been nine accidental deaths in the mall and the owners are sick of the stories

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-3
Amityville comes visiting Bollywood in this lackluster attempt at raising a scare.Between a song titled Pinacolada and some ear shattering background score (screeching and screaming) there is a lot to be scared of in this mall. Vishnu (Jimmy) is a security supervisor at Amity Mall

  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-4
Pawan Kripalani, whose previous film 'Ragini MMS', scared the living daylights out of us, 'Darr @ The Mall' comes as a huge disappointment. While one doesn't expect much of a novelty in terms of story when it comes to horror, cliched execution cannot be forgiven.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
Trailers actually prove the importance of their being in case of films like Darr @ The Mall. One look at the promos and you know this is Grudge meets Mama meets Conjuring affair. Why do you watch it still? For the "novel" idea of the haunting occuring in a mall. Does it surprise you? Not really!

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
From abandoned bungalows to a mall— Hindi horror films have certainly come a long way. And while the interestingly titled Darr @ The Mall does make these cosmetic changes, at the heart it gives us the same ol’ cliched moments.So Amity mall has been witnessing paranormal

  •  Daily Bhaskar - Rating-3
After Ragini MMS, director Pawan Kripalani is all set to try his luck at the box office with his another horror film Darr @ the Mall. However, the director has failed to scare his audience this time. There is not even a single instance where you will feel scary in the film.
