  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-6
A revenge comedy, or conning a con to be specific, is a rarity in Bollywood. Recall KHOSLA KA GHOSLA, which was amongst the first in this genre. Subsequently, a whole new segment that deviate from the tried-and-tested route, boast of an ensemble cast, are close to real life and belong

  •  Rediff -Paloma Sharma Rating-5
Thanks to a lineup of fine actors, Shashant Singh’s new film Bajatey Raho opens to high expectations.Starring Vinay Pathak, Dolly Ahluwalia, Ranvir Shorey and Tusshar Kapoor in lead roles, Bajatey Raho is a comedy-thriller that balances both elements quite well and is mildly reminiscent of

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
Severely hobbled by a banal plot premise, Bajatey Raho does not drum up any real joy.Not that it is devoid of a hook to hang its wafer-thin storyline on. A little more effort and imagination might have made the film two hours of harmless fun.Director Shashant A Shah, in his third Bollywood outing,

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-4
The intrinsic flaw in Bajatey Raho is that it is a comedy which barely has any laughs to boast of. A family thugged by a goon –businessman seeking revenge is a story that has been epitomized in the very engaging Khosla Ka Ghosla and this one is a melodramatic, shabbier and jerky version of the same.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
When all hell has broken loose and it's only the crooks left to rule the roost, it is time for the good to start its fight over evil. But is that enough? In India's first ever revenge comedy; you shall witness the fight of CON v/s EVIL to retain one's honour, integrity and prestige.

  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-6
In his third outing in Bollywood, Shashant Shah, who has been previously credited with Dasvidaniya (2008) and Chalo Dilli (2011), attempts a light-hearted comedy based out of sadda Dilli. Predominantly Punjabi-flavoured, the film is one of those of linear, comic capers with a slight drama

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-3
Ahluwalia is a natural, as she was in Vicky Donor, and Pathak and Shorey have earned enough cred as street-smart Punjus. But they end up being all too-familiar and ill-used because they are made to share space with miscast actors. Tusshar is earnest but impact-less; and Kishan is offkey

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-4
One of the big ticket releases of this week, Bajatey Raho boasts of being a rib-tickling situational comedy. Even the promos of the film reassure the same. So when you enter the theater you expect a Khosla Ka Ghosla type of riotous entertainer, however, this Eros International productions turns

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-4
Bajatey Raho is the kind of film that cuts for a good promo. It has the requisite visual elements coupled with a satirical song that hints at a perfect combination of a Khosla ka Ghosla meets Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye resulting in a small, sincere caper entertainer. Unfortunately, it ends up as an

  •  Mid-Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-3
Now this was a promising story. An honest bank employee gets framed by his employer and sent to jail and he dies in shock. His wife and son get together with two other people to avenge the humiliation. A plot like this could have been laced with black humour so thick that the audience could sit

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
Fine actors can make poor films just a little bit easier to endure. Nowhere is that more evident than in a film like 'Bajatey Raho'. This comedy, directed by 'Challo Dilli''s Shashant Shah has a harebrained plot with so many holes, you could shoot footballs through them. But the film's brisk pace
