  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
Rather than beating around the bush, let us directly come to the point as to: Is BANG BANG really as big as it's made out to be? The man who goes by the name of 'Hrithik Roshan' is back and how! This time, 'supporting' his acts are the highly sophisticated mean machines, hot wheel

  •  Filmi Beat -Nandhini Rating-6
Bang Bang! as the name goes for the title so does the stunts and action in the film which goes Bang Bang. The most-awaited flick of the year starring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif is out in theaters today. Bang Bang releases in over 4500 theaters and will be a biggest competitor

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-3
When Bollywood filmmakers remake a Hollywood film, I wish they would stick to the same duration too! Bang Bang is the Indian remake of Knight and Day, which as far as I remember, was about 110 minutes but the running time of Bang Bang is 156 minutes! For a film with no head or tail, that's quite long!

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-5
I believe the script is as much to be blamed in the lack of energy in the film as the direction. Sujoy Ghosh, Abbas Tyrewala and Suresh Nair did not bother stretching the contours of Knight and Day. They limited the film to Bollywood frills making it a potboiler not above than the regular

  •  The W14 -Mayank Shekhar Rating-2
If nothing else, the sheer stupidity of this film’s plot must make you sit up and take notice. As it turns out, the Indian government is about to sign an extradition treaty with the United Kingdom. This is terrible news for our main “Dr Dang” type villain (Danny Denzongpa). His dhanda,

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-3
Action films aren't what they used to be. Gone are the days when a girl would heat a knife on a candle and dig out a bullet while Amitabh Bachchan threw out a trademark grimace. Nowadays all the girl needs to do is shine a torch while the guy puts on a bandaid. Expecting these insipid

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
BANG BANG is such intelligent madness that it will make you cringe in your seat. Apparently, it's supposed to be a remake of the Tom Cruise-Cameroon Diaz starrer Knight and Day. I'm sure the writers (three of them) could have done a better cut-paste job. Copy karna toh itna mushkil to nahi hai!

  •  Masala.com -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-4
Bang Bang in a line is Krrish sans the mask. Hrithik Roshan plays Rajveer, a trigger-happy thief who is on the run with the most precious diamond; Kohinoor. Unlike Krrish he doesn’t boast of a mask and a robe made of those black garbage bags but does all that a superdah

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-5
I still remember watching 'Dhoom' and had loved the international styling attached to it. The movie was a perfect entertainer with good music, power packed action, fast car chase and decent storyline attached to it. Sadly, 'Dhoom 2' despite of being a bigger film was just about style

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
A film called ‘Bang Bang’, toplined by Hrithik and Katrina, declares its intentions even before the first frame : there will be guns, there will be the sexy duo, and EVERYONE will go bang bang. When that is all that is going on, the film is a ride. When it decides to go all sentimental and family drama

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
True to its utterly unimaginative title, Bang Bang makes a hell of a lot of ear-splitting noise. By the end of it all, it manages to produce no more than a croaky, barely palatable whimper. The action hero at the centre of the film’s inane plot periodically plunges off buildings,

  •  Book My Show -Teena Elizabeth Rating-5
Finally it is time for Bang Bang! Directed by Siddharth Anand, this glamorous version of Knight and Day isn’t bang-on target. The death-defying stunts, Hrithik’s chiseled body, picturesque locations, colorful song sequences – do nothing for the film. There is no saving grace for

  •  Zee News -Gayatri Sankar Rating-5
What would you expect from a film, when the teaser itself creates sizeable excitement and becomes an instant hit? What would you look out for when the tracks from the film become a massive rage? A blockbuster film, right? Alas, touted as one of the most anticipated films of 2014

  •  Bollywood Life -Vinod Talreja Rating-6
Siddharth Anand may not have proved his prowess as a director, but he will surely be remembered for his latest offering. What you will really love about Bang Bang are those high-octane car chases, open shoot-outs, and other breathtaking stunts. Especially the F1 car sequences

  •  Hindustan Times -Rohit Vats Rating-3
You notice Jimmy Shergill in the opening sequence and you understand in a flash that he is soon going to disappear. Reason for it is very simple. Somebody has to pave the way for the hugely publicised action hero. And, then he arrives, only to not leave the frame for even 10% of the entire film.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-4
So you've had an exhausting week. You are bored out of your wits. You want some entertainment, any entertainment, a film laced with grandeur, an air conditioned theater to drive off the prickly October heat, stunning locales, actors (or models) straight out of clothing brochures and

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-3
There's no thrill in Bang Bang, a desi adaptation of the Hollywood action thriller Knight & Day, but only bullets, bombs and gadgets. Five minutes into the film, Sujoy Ghosh and Suresh Nair's so-called screenplay is cracked. The remaining two hours and 30 minutes are spent on a ridiculous

  •  CNN IBN -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
Bang Bang has two gorgeous leads, some eye-popping stunt scenes, a slew of beautiful locales, and pretty hummable music. It would take an especially awful script and a truly incompetent director to deliver an unwatchable film out of those ingredients.Within the first ten minutes of the movie

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-6
I imagine that all our top Bollywood stars, after their regular visits to Siddhivinayak and Haji Ali, now make a pilgrimage to the offices of big Hollywood studios which have set up shop in Mumbai. Before entering, they probably touch their foreheads to the steps leading

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-6
Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang makes more noise and little sense. This desi adaptation of the 2010 Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz action thriller, Knight And Day, has charm in abundance, primarily because of its effervescent lead pair -- Rajveer/Jai ( Hrithik Roshan) and Harleen (Katrina Kaif).

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanwar Rating-4
The film begins with Viren Nanda (Jimmy Shergil) who arrives in London to take back wanted criminal Omar (Danny Denzongpa) back to India. However, he gets killed but not before telling Omar that his days are numbered as well. Meanwhile, Omar wants the Kohinoor diamond and wants

  •  Bolly Spice -Prarthna Tiwari Rating-4
If you’re waiting hopefully thinking that the man who gave us films which are noted as some of the most torturous hours one could have spent in a cinema hall (Tara Rum Pum, Anjaana Anjaani, Salaam Namaste and Bachna Ae Haseeno), will deliver something enlightening then

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-5
Is it a bird? Is it a toy plane? Is it Bond, Bourne, Hunt or Bean? It's Kandy Krrish without a mask and cape! Also known as superstar Hrithik Roshan, he plays jet-setting supercriminal Rajveer Nanda, bang-banging his way (without visas) across an odd world in which the gorgeous Katrina Kaif

  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-4
It’s not every day that a film’s teaser breaks all the records on Youtube. The excitement for Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang! could also be estimated from the fact that almost all morning shows in Delhi were houseful. We booked our tickets well in advance, but still we had to compromise

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-6
Making director Siddharth Anand thank his lucky stars in heaven, in Bollywood (Hrithik and Katrina) and the one at Fox Star Studios (the one who okayed the 140 crore finance for this) for agreeing to be part of this year’s touted high energy biggie, which is nothing more than great locations

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
If you've seen Knight and Day (Bang Bang! is an official remake), better steer clear. Otherwise, the film might be tolerable, even entertaining in parts. We see a scowling Jimmy Shergill who is on the hunt for Omar - India ka most wanted criminal. Shergill, who plays Colonel Nanda

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-5
In what looks like an extension of his role in 'Dhoom 2', Hrithik Roshan is the ‘international’ thief who steals nothing less than the Kohinoor. (Didn’t we leave the Kohinoor obsession behind in the ’60s and ’70s era?). Roshan’s Rajveer Inamdar is so agile that he can jump from anywhere

  •  India Today -Koel Purie Rating-4
Bang Bang is an action thriller, with a love story woven in, directed by Siddharth Anand. Most wanted gangster, Omar Zafar (Danny Denzongpa), escapes MI 6 in London by killing an Indian army Colonel. Then he plots to steal the Kohinoor from the Tower of London as a tool of exchange for his freedom.

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-3
When the makers of Bang Bang chose to remake Knight and Day, hen selected Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif to play the lead, spent crores on action and stunt sequences, couldn't they pay some attention to the story? Bang Bang is a classic example of only style, no substance.

  •  Business Of Cinema -Tara Agrawal Rating-5
When the director of films like ‘Hum Tum’ and ‘Salaam Namaste’ is given the reigns of remaking a mediocre Hollywood action movie (‘Knight and Day’), the result is ‘Bang Bang’. Siddharth Anand’s glossy, globe-trotting film sells itself on its gorgeous lead actors (Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif)

  •  Deccan Herald -Angel Rani Rating-4
Katrina looks a million dollars but struggles to find a boyfriend. Why? She is not on dating website ‘trueluvv.’ Aww! Good sense prevails though and Ms Kaif is out to find her match online, with ample support from her go-get-your-man granny. And she does find her man –– a mean machine.
