  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
An interesting news-piece highlighted the fact that an increasing number of pet owners are providing provisions for their pets in their wills. The write-up focused on some of the world’s richest animal heirs, which included a Pooch, Labrador, Bull Terrier, Chihuahua, Ragdoll Cat... even a Chimpanzee.

  •  Masala.com -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-3
The A/C in my room broke down this morning and my house was nothing less than a furnace. It was so hot I thought nothing else could be more irritating. I hadn't watched Entertainment till then.Which also means that the film will do a 100 crore business before I can say Jack Robinson

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-2
At the onset, I will express my respect for the film that the story was kept mostly neat. But one must understand that dialogues cannot alone help the film thrive. And as I have mentioned earlier, the long running joke involving name of actors and actresses is bound to be shortlived.

  •  ABP News -Mayank Shekar Rating-2
I don’t know if those shoddy anti-smoking “kark rog” videos before every film and after intervals in theatres annoy you as much.I would much rather be warned against certain Akshay movies. They could be dangerous to one’s precious mental health—so what if the lungs are still safe.

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-6
Entertainment tells you the story of how one Daddy's Najayaz Aulad (illegitimate child),abbreviated in the film as DNA,stumbles upon the fact that he is actually a poor Mumbai boy born to a billionaire from Bangkok.His father, Pannalal Johri (Dalip Tahil in a garlanded photo-frame on the wall)

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-2
This is Bollywood's first attempt at a canine comedy. The result is terrible advertisement for all concerned - mankind as a whole, man's best friend in particular, and the genre itself. Entertainment, scripted and directed by super-successful potboiler writers Farhad-Sajid,

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-4
Akshay Kumar’s new movie, Entertainment revolves around a multimillionaire golden retriever of the same name and endorses Vidya Balan’s opinion of movies clicking solely on the basis of 'entertainment, entertainment, entertainment.' Alright then, why not assess its merits on the

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-2
Before making Entertainment, directors Sajid-Farhad have contributed quite a bit in the slapstick genre, to name a few Golmaal Returns, Golmaal 3, Housefull 2, Bol Bachchan and even the epic flop Himmatwala, they have written all these film. Hence, subtlety is something I was

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7
Making people laugh is a serious business and the debut director duo (and writers) Sajid-Farhad do a more than decent job of it. The story is about a poor man, Akhil (Akshay Kumar), who suddenly realises that he could be the heir to a 3000 crore property in Bangkok,

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-2
In Hollywood we have seen many great movies featuring a dog in a salient role. The viewers have witnessed many dog based films in form of animation, action, emotional and comical films. Earlier in our Hindi films, dogs were used only as a source of comic relief or for an emotional scene.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-2
In the film Akshay Kumar's father is dead and he rants, "Life without you is no fun because I have turned into an orphan."Mithun Chakraborty tells Johny Lever's character, "Kya gajab ka fan hai! Yeh male hai ya female?" As a gasped Johny Lever is still looking at Mithun trying to fathom

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-3
Entertainment may assure viewers early on that no animals were harmed during the making of the film. But after 2 hours and 20 minutes one can say with certainty that an animal looked thoroughly bored during it. It's not comforting when it happens to be the eponymous hero,

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-6
Salman Khan had very rightly pointed out in his episode of Koffee WIth Karan. Akshay Kumar is probably the only actor in his generation who has shown as much growth. From being labeled as merely an action star to being a convincing part of various genres, he is one actor who

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-4
There's a dog who has been bequeathed 3000 crores by his late owner, a businessman of Indian origin, living in Bangkok named Panhalal. We don't know whether the amount is in Rupees or Baht. Neither Sajid, nor Farhad, both directors of the film, thought it necessary.

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
What happens when a man working three jobs to sustain his hospitalized father and unable to win over his girlfriend's greedy dad, suddenly comes into inherited money?And what happens when the road to that 3000 crore has one unlikely hitch - a cute Golden Retriever named Entertainment.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-2
I love dogs. They are good people. And Akshay Kumar in full throttle has been known to raise a nifty paw or two. Dog and star come together in a flick that promises to entertain us.We know this because it is called ‘Entertainment’, just in case we are in the danger of missing the point.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Kusumita Das Rating-2
When the credits introduce him as the “wonder dog” you expect to see well… wonders. But what you get instead is him playing fetch the ball, on thin ice, (computer generated of course), wearing a hoodie, walking on a treadmill while the camera zooms in on his puppy eyes every five minutes.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-1
Anyone who's ever got a bad review tends to believe that movie critics don't want to enjoy a film. That they go into a movie thinking of new and different ways to shred it to bits. That's not true I can assure you, and I've been doing this job for over 15 years. Watching bad films is exhausting,

  •  Deccan Herald -Angel Rani Rating-4
Akshay odd-job Kumar is living a mundane life. One fine day, he discovers that he is the long-lost son of a diamond merchant in Bangkok.Yippee! He is off to the palatial mansion with his bag and a bottle of blood. After all, he has to prove that he is Daddy’s Najayaz Aulad (DNA).

  •  Book My Show -Aubrey D'Souza Rating-3
There is a saying in show business, never work with children or animals. It was coined when the world was younger and cinema hadn’t really found its legs. But there is a flip side to working with animals. Sometimes, they outperform the veteran humans. And such is the case of Entertainment.

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-2
Watching Akshay Kumar’s new film Entertainment put me in flashback mode. I went back to 1985. KC Bokadia’s Teri Meherbaniyan, starring Jackie Shroff, Poonam Dhillon and a black Labrador named Moti, had just released. As usual, the video library boy brought a pirated cassette to my home.

  •  Hindustan Times -Sweta Kaushal Rating-2
Let's start with the screenplay. Done by Sajid-Farhad, it does not really build up into much of the story, and most of the information is speed-fed. Within minutes, in what seems like a montage of videos, Entertainment shows Akshay trying his hands at various jobs, without much of an explanation.

  •  Zee News -Gayatri Sankar Rating-8
Akhil is an all-rounder of sorts who leaves no stone unturned to provide the best medical aid to his hospitalised father. He does modelling for a tele-shopping brand, works as a background dancer, does umpiring at a local cricket match, all in order to accumulate enough wealth

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-5
The subliminal effect of Akshay Kumar emotionally telling a dog that entertainment is always right is not lost on me. This is moments after he smashes his bleeding hands against the surface of a frozen river, lamenting the supposed death of entertainment.

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-3
‘Entertainment’ is one of those films where the people in the 2-minute end credit video seem to have more fun than you did during the entire run-time (2 hours 21 minutes) of the film. It is also the kind of film that makes me realize that this is one of those Fridays when I have lost

  •  Bollywood Life -Tushar Joshi Rating-7
Akshay Kumar and Krishna Abhishek are two friends who curse their fate for not being on their side. Tamannaah plays a stereotypical TV serial actress who needs to convince her father that marrying Akshay will keep her happy. But Mithun her dad puts down a condition that she can only

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-7
A consistently spoofy perky tongue keeping the audience cheeks spread in glee. ‘Entertainment’ is not a great shaker as a Bollywood movie on dogs or pet animals, but writers turned directors Farhad and Sajid LOL one liners slaps it’s broad and obvious clichés to make the movie permanently
