  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-4
The fight between the virtuous and wicked has been the staple diet of several Indian movies since eons. Although the trend of remaking South Indian films in Hindi was widespread in the 1980s, it got an impetus with films like GHAJINI [2008] and WANTED [2009] in the last decade.

  •  koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-4
Using the most common fodder of action films, this one is another masalathon. In such films, it is the charisma of its lead man that weighs heavy. Sanjay Dutt plays the rustic cop with great delight. But the problem is the treatment, which is very raw and since the audience

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-2
For a film that is as spectacularly dumb, Policegiri makes far too much noise. The actors holler at the top of their voices, the action sequences are mind-numbingly silly, the background score can pierce through any cotton-wool shield, and the storyline is all sound and fury, and little else.

  •  IBN Live -Rohit Vats Rating-3
A strangely crafted police officer Rudra (Sanjay Dutt) greets you in the beginning and soon starts flying across the screen as if he has to impress the stunt director of 'The Matrix'. As expected, Rudra is a fearless cop, (Remember 'dost ghareebon ka, naam Robinhood hai') who has been transferred

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
Policegiri comes at a time when superstar Sanjay Dutt is behind bars. The makers of the film have made ample usage of that fact too with all their promotional campaigns that literally made the star omni-present during the promotions of the film. The film happens to be one amongst

  •  Mid-Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-4
When a policeman is willing to be corrupt in order to clean the system, it calls for an interesting tale. But then, in this case, he’s not all alone throughout so there are several layers attached to him — allowing space for criticism. Even though this film marking director KS Ravikumar’s Bollywood

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-2
As if Amar Mohile’s loud-enough-to-turn-anybody-deaf background score isn’t emphatic enough, Dutt thumps his chest vigorously to introduce himself as DCP Rudra, the newly transferred cop of Nagapuram town who is ‘born in Mumbai, raised in India.’ He’s the proverbial cross between

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-2
Ten years ago, superhit Tamil film Saamy presented a Robin Hood type cop making whoopee in a small town. That cop was played by Vikram with great raffish style, and was the inspiration for Salman Khan's act in Dabangg. The dark glasses thrust down the back of the shirt was an idea

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-2
Dabangg is now officially a genre. Here are some of the salient features of the category and how Policegiri fits perfectly in. The film has to be about a cop. And he must be corrupt. Because you can't fight the system unless you're part of the system. I'm given to understand they're putting this

  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-5
If you are a fan of Rajinikanth's over-the-top action, if films like Wanted, Dabangg and Singham entertain you and if you like Sanju baba's style, Policegiri is bound to make you whistle. Clearly catering to the masses and fans of masala potboilers, this Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster
