  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-3
After a late screening, I hailed a rickshaw while furiously trying to decode Rajeev Khandelwal's tribute to BenedictCumberbatch.Driver: Rough night, sir? I: The questions to answers are always questions. Nights are the mother of all mysteries. Driver: Your desperate tendency to deflect queries

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-5
The movie has a gripping screenplay along with decent performance by few actors. However, besides that the movie is a weak attempt in a detective based suspense thriller type of films. The cases were artificially tough which in fact turned out to be so simple that any kid could solve it

  •  The Front Row -Anupama Chopra Rating-2
Samrat & Co. is an intriguingly amateurish murder mystery in which Rajeev Khandelwal plays a Sherlock Holmes style detective. Armed with impressive powers of deduction and a sidekick who describes himself as Watson, Samrat solves crimes - in this film,

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Rating-3
The summer vacations are finally here and so is the array of film releases which tend to redeem it during the holidays. Considering the scorching heat outside, one always feels safe and undisturbed sitting indoors and playing games like whodunit detective games or reading mysterious novels.

  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-4
Samrat Tilakdhari aka STD (Rajeev Khandelwal) is the desi Sherlock Holmes, famous for his brilliant analytical mind and formidable martial abilities. Not one to offend his intelligence, he only takes up cases that are challenging enough.

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-2
When the chief sleuth in the movie goes by the unlovely handle of STD, you know what you are in for. The full name is Samrat Tilakdhari, just in case you were wondering. And no, it doesn’t get any better.There’s a tribute paid upfront to Sherlock Holmes,

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-2
A mismanaged desi version of Sherlock Holmes, Samrat & Co throws up more mysteries and questions about its badly written plot than the ones we are expected to watch.Heavily  borrowed from Robert Downey Jr's critically acclaimed film, there is hardly any original material worth mentioning.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-1
After his last uneventful outing at the movies with Ishq Actually (2013) Rajeev Khandelwal continues his bad luck with this disaster called Samrat & Co. Misery loves company. Perhaps that's why you have an assorted bunch of actors in this Kaushik Ghatak (Ek Vivah Aisa Bhi, 2008)

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
This is supposedly a detective flick. There's an STD and a CD. STD is Samrat Tilakdhari (Rajeev Khandelwal) the detective; CD is Chakradhar Pandey (Gopal Datt), his side-kick. Thankfully there was no VHS, DVD or a Pen drive.CD is supposedly a television anchor who features in crime stories.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
So we are to have a string of detective films making their way to celluloid this year including the likes of Bobby Jasoos, Jagga Jasoos, Byomkesh Bakshi and the lesser known Samrat & Co. While the first one Joe B Carvalho of the year turned out to be a damp squib, the second this year in the detective
