  •  Zee News -gayatri sankar rating-6
It must have indeed been a task for filmmaker Atul Sabharwal to bring alive a real estate saga, enveloped with corruption and the geed for power, on celluloid. A Yash Raj Films’ production, ‘Aurangzeb’ is one film that throws light on the dark underbelly of the National Capital Region

  •  IBN Live -rohit vats rating-5
The conviction to commit a crime makes a gangster menacing and important. Director Atul Sabharwal's 'Aurangzeb' is interesting in this aspect that none of his characters is innocent. It's full of treacheries and the audience rarely witness a change of heart which lasts for more than five scenes.

  •  Rediff -sukanya verma rating-6
Aurangzeb is primarily about inheritance of character from parent to child. And the opening underlines this theme with a quote from Roman poet Horace, ‘Deep in the cavern of the infant’s breast; the father’s nature lurks, and lives anew.’What lends its sentimentality a crooked twist is how

  •  koimoi -mohar basu rating-5
I was excited to find such a good script after a long time. The writer sure to have lived and breathed in the ambiance he recreates in the story, knows the details of the lives of the people he wishes to portray. It is the screenplay’s fault that he botches up climatic hilts making the storyline

  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-4
Bollywood's fascination with dual roles dates back to its golden era, when Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand and Raj Kapoor reigned supreme. Recall HUM DONO [Dev Anand], RAM AUR SHYAM [Dilip Kumar], DO KALIYAN [Neetu Singh], ARADHANA [Rajesh Khanna], SEETA AUR GEETA [Hema Malini],

  •  Times of India -gaurav malani rating-4
The double role element that the film employs is neither explored to the hilt nor does it add too much value or variation. While the twin brothers are supposed to be two diverse characters thanks to their different upbringing, we see the film largely through the eyes of Ajay and then Vishal

  •  Pardaphash -faisal saif rating-5
Sometimes, The Poster of a film tells you the complete story of a film. The Tagline in Aurangzeb's poster says "Son", "Brother", "Successor", "Emperor". And the Tagline is given on Arjun Kapoor's body who also plays a Double Role in the film. So you get to know the suspense of the film automatically

  •  DNA -tushar joshi rating-5
Aurangzeb is a tight political drama that uses the nexus between cops and real estate mafia to weave a tale of deceit, treachery, double crossing and revenge. Set in Gurgaon the story revolves around the cat and mouse game between Yashwardhan Singh (Jackie Shroff) and the police force
  •  Bollywood Life -reza noorani rating-6
A well scripted cop drama is always a good watch. Laced with slick values, strong dialogues, multiple characters and a clever story that keeps you guessing, these weave their plots tight and leave you with that ‘all-ends-tied-up’ kind of a feeling. Some of the more popular movies of this

  •  Mumbai Mirror -karan anshuman rating-5
It is important to pay attention early on in Aurangzeb as it kicks off with Rishi Kapoor's voiceover. He introduces his "business" as a top cop and the roll of characters that are to play a part in this complex, intelligent plot that holds the promise of a taut thriller about power and money.

  •  Daily Bhaskar -mayank shekar rating-6
This film is set within a large Indian joint family. The mother is a picture of warmth while the father is essentially stern, often burdened by demands of society. At some point you also get to see a karva chauth scene. This is a “Yashraj film”. And yet viewers must stand adequately warned.
  •  One India -nabanita roy rating-5
After Ishaqzaade, The Yash Raj Films is back again with their hot favourite Arjun Kapoor in the latest release Aurangzeb, that also features a few heavyweights of the industry. The film has been in the news, ever since the first theatrical went online and especially, due to Arjun Kapoor's

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-4
The trouble with Aurangzeb is not that it isn't ambitious. It is, and that's good. Because after a long time there's a film which invites you to work on unraveling the threads. But right from its too-crowded epilogue, where information about the characters comes flying out at you,

  •  Hindustan Times -sarit ray rating-4
Back in the ’60s — when classics like Hum Dono (1961) and Ram Aur Shyam (1967) were made — it must have been a thrilling experience for moviegoers to see an actor face his other self on screen. But to make the double role the focal point of a film in an age of 3D, which is as familiar

  •  Deccan Chronicle -suparna sharma rating-7
Just before the release of 'Aurangzeb,' I had heated discussions with two dear friends about this boy called Arjun Kapoor. Both my friends don’t like him, for different reasons. One said that he looks dim and strolls about like a spoilt child with an air of entitlement that’s repulsive.
