Mr. X Hindi Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-6
The film's VFX could've been far better and looks shabby in places. The scenes where Mr X is sparsely visible, are the ones in which its poor quality is noticeable. The 3D effect does help its visual appeal. Despite flaws, in its 133 minutes of runtime, Bhatt churns out a quasi-gratifying

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-1
I watched ‘Mr X’ in the 3 D version, hoping for some diversion. But there was none. Just relentless awfulness in plot and execution and performance. The special effects are just about all right, and even those you’ve seen before. Nothing redeems it. Not even Emraan Hashmi

  •  Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-4
Mr. X is just another Bhatt film. Driven by love and revenge, this superhero film is least on the superhero quotient and high on drama. This time for a family audience, I am not sure even kids who have now grown up watching Avengers and X Men would like this. I am going with a 2/5 for this film.

  •  NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-2
Unalloyed gobbledygook: two words are all that one needs to sum up Mr X. But Vikram Bhatt's flashy film (released also in 3D in case one is interested in third-degree torture) runs for over two hours but does not come up with even two-and-a-half scenes that can pass muster. Two fluffy

  •  Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-3
Lazy, lifeless yet forcibly shoving 3D (decent in spurts, largely nonexistent) down our eyeballs, Mr X is like the character asking for an unoccupied table in an empty restaurant -- spaced out. It clumsily juggles between an SFX-packed action before promptly losing way to accommodate

  •  India Today | Review By -Ananya Bhattacharya Rating-5
In all, Mr. X comes across as a decent one-time watch, if you choose to reflexively force-shut your ears to some of the corny dialogues. An important takeaway from the film: Workplace romances are doomed, and will more often than not, get you into trouble. The story is very

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-2
Mr X is badly written, and we don't want to talk about acting. Emraan Hashmi appears bored, but Amyra Dastur looks improved in emotional scenes. But it is not enough to save the film. Mr X is a complete waste of time. And, before clicking on to another link, you would like to take

  •  DNA | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-2
Not much. Honestly there is very little to praise in the film. Emraan tries his best to salvage the situation, but there isn't much he can do. You can actually feel for him in a few scenes where he's trying real hard to convince the audience to believe in this story. There is some novelty

  •  Zee News | Review By -Ritika Handoo Rating-5
Mr X can take you back to your Mr India days, but only for the similarity between their film titles—if only criminals could be killed by going invisible! Book your tickets for Emraan Hashmi ala 3D style! Ankit Tiwari's smooth voice is a pleasure to the ears. But it is Mahesh Bhatt's

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Karan Raikar Rating-4
However, at the outset, the film is nothing like Hollow Man or Mr. India, except for a few instances. All in all, Mr. X is a decent entertainer, but falls short in more than one area. An ambitious attempt, the film will not disappoint Emraan Hashmi fans. Watch it if you have nothing to do over the weekend!

  •  Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-4
While it’s not easy to pull in viewers with a storyline that involves an invisible man, Hashmi doesn’t get much support from anyone. Just like his struggle to bring down evil men, he’s alone in his fight to make Mr X a watchable film. Go for this if you are a Hashmi fan. All others can give this one a miss.

  •  Masala | Review By -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-3
Let’s just say Mr. X is a quarterly deal between the Bhatts and their bhanja with everything typically Vishesh films --- hot Chiquita, check, bad CG, check and kissing scenes, hell check!! My only question to Mr. X was Y! Why were you made? Watch it only if you are a huge Hashmi fan.

  •  Moviez Adda | Review By -Divya Solgama Rating-4
‘Mr.X’ had a great opportunity of becoming a kid loving franchise film like ‘Krissh’, but ends up being a decent trashy product due to its weak screenplay and lethargic direction. It’s not a bad watch, but it’s not worth a watch either. Despite of having everything needed for such type of film

  •  Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Hungama Network Rating-5
Given the fact that all of Emraan Hashmi's films have at least one (smash) hit track in them, this film falters in that department as well. The film's music (Jeet Ganguly, Ankit Tiwari) lacks any hit or hummable songs. It's the film's background music (Raju Singh) that manages

  •  Now Running | Review By -Piyush Chopra Rating-3
It's high time that Vikram Bhatt stopped making films, and more importantly, that Emraan Hashmi stopped acting in them out of a sense of debt. You could go into theaters expecting to spend a terrible couple of hours and you'll still come out with your expectations superseded by this inept

  •  Glamsham | Review By -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
Emraan gets his mandatory dose of smooches. In one scene, Amyra just jumps for his lips at the sound of ''action''; like you see runners getting off the block at the sound of the gun. One should not be mistaken for Arunodhay Singh's act of the bad cop as an extension of his role from

  •  Daily Bhaskar | Rating-2
It is a shame that in a day and age when Indian audience has grown to admire good cinema that nudges you to think, may be have a hearty laugh, or simply feel good about life, there are filmmakers who are still churning out pathetic and baseless films like Mr. X. Acting wise, there is no saving
