Critic Reviews Tere Bin Laden 2 Dead or Alive

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-7/10
These four actors took it upon themselves to make this comedy a glorious rip-roaring affair. While Kher had a tendency to lean towards caricature, the relatively unknown Singh is spot on with his Punjabi accent and expressions. Paul does his bit to make this film immensely watchable. Watch this if you are in the mood for some light-hearted fun about war, terrorism and the highly exaggerated world of Bollywood.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5/10
More than the film’s writing being funny, one has to rely on the placards and the setting that most of the scenes have which make you laugh. An example would be Olympia-e- dehshat which is like a competition among Fidayeens. This is the kind of comedy that is in the face. It is mindless and will tickle your funny bone only when you can keep your thinking hat at bay.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4/10
There’s more packed into the script this time around, and a little more energy and pace. But the problem of repetition persists: once you’ve slung out a joke, do not bring it up again. Or, if you have to, make it more fun. Lots of jibes at the contrasting working styles of Hollywood and Bollywood abound: the first time around, it’s funny, then less so, and so on. You don’t laugh as much as you should, because successful satires need to be tighter.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-5/10
Tere Bin Laden – Dead or alive (TBL 2 for our convenience) takes off on a funny note when we see a film school graduate desperate to walk away from his family business. His father sales ‘jalebi’ in old Delhi. This seems like a satire on the current state of filmmaking in Bollywood where people think mixing certain ingredients will result in a sweet ‘jalebi’. Quirky writing promises a lot at this stage. The audience begins to feel the need of this sequel as the CIA

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-4/10
Overall, however, the script is bogged down by too many clich├ęs like theatrical news anchors and stale ideas on America bashing. A lot of jokes just don’t work; punches fall flat, laboured slapstick – overacted demonstration of overacting, birds bursting into smithereens, we still doing that? Even the presence of a paranoid Obama (Iman Crosson) doesn’t add up to much. If intended to be a spoof on the vagaries of filmmaking, Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive is completely devoid of whimsy.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4/10
The film takes ages to spring to life. When it does begin to show some signs of vitality, it flails about aimlessly. In the dying minutes of the first half, Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive raises a few laughs as a series of mistaken identities sparks some serious manic mayhem. But post-interval, the film, despite many explosions and gunfights, goes completely comatose again never to sufficiently revive itself. One of the characters describes it best. This Hollywood

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Mehul S Thakkar Rating-4/10
Where it doesn't have an impact this time around is riding on the same content which many may find non exciting. However what works are the characters who were loved by the audience 6 years back. Those same characters especially Paddi Singh (Pradhuman Singh), Sugandha, Piyush Mishra (Khaleeli) make Tere Bin Laden Dead or Alive, an enjoyable watch.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-5/10
Manish Paul shines in the lead role as the bumbling director and there is no denying his natural affinity for humor. We have seen him successfully host TV shows and make us laugh, but being part of a big film is a different ball game. Paul manages to make the most of the material given to him and uses his timing with Pradhuman to good use. Sikander Kher is brilliant as the CIA agent and the prosthetics and make up in the first half give his character an edge.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH News Network Rating-5/10
When you have an iconic film to live up to, it is always going to be an uphill task when you come up with its sequel. TERE BIN LADEN is one of the best films to have been made in the last ten years. Even though the theatrical trailer of TERE BIN LADEN DEAD OR ALIVE boasted of a lot of promise, the movie is a half baked entertainer that makes you chuckle at quite a few occasions but it doesn't deliver a full throated laughter.

  • Masala | Review By -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-4/10
Tere Bin Laden scores more on cracking jokes rather than storytelling. The film abounds with placards and signage: a budding filmmaker carrying a certificate that reads 'Duffer', terrorists celebrating Olympia-e-dehshat with signs of 'Bomb Relay' and 'Jump' shoved so mercilessly into our faces that it ceases to be funny anymore. These signs don’t end throughout the film. A couple of them evoked a smile or two like an American Government agent
