Critic Reviews Laal Rang

  • Times Of India | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-4/10
he best thing about Laal Rang is its novel idea. It is dark, murky and lays the perfect plinth for an enchanting film. The bad news here is that it is an opportunity lost. Director Syed Ahmad Afzal fails to lap up the chance to deliver something memorable. His approach lacks clarity. The convoluted screenplay is unsure about where it is headed. Despite having all the makings of a macabre thriller, Syed goes for drama.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5/10
Laal Rang is not a movie that boasts of high star values and hence not many would flock to theaters to watch it. Although if you are a fan of Randeep Hooda, this one should be your pick. As an insight into the Blood mafia, this is not exactly a docu-drama so you may not get the detailing here.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3/10
The film is meant to be based on two `real life’ incidents, but it doesn’t tell us which. What we get, to begin with, is a scary inside view of the kind of skullduggery that goes on between places and people who are meant to be engaged in saving our lives, and are instead, busy lining their pockets, criminally indifferent to the dangers they pose.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6/10
The best thing about this film is its unique and interesting plot, which is inspired by the true life account of people who make a quick buck through the blood bank racket. The next best thing is Randeep Hooda, who plays Shankar, the kingpin of this racket. Shankar, a well-etched character, is the unlikeliest hero. He is brash, largely unapologetic about

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-6/10
Neither the title, nor the trailer suggests anything about Laal Rang’s dark setting. So, when the macabre thriller unfolds, it manages to keep the audience engrossed. Randeep Hooda’s character Shankar spreads its charm and completely absorbs us into his blood transfusion racket where he plays both the devil and savior.

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-6/10
While the first half is well-paced, the second half doesn’t have the same momentum. However, it’s a fascinating expose into the immoral world of blood trafficking. The poor agreeing to donate their blood for some quick money and a packet of glucose biscuits is revolting, yet you can’t seem to tear your eyes away from the macabre.

  • Masala | Review By -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-Meh
Laal Rang could have been red hot alas turned out to be like a red flag to a bull. Don't be in the red, spend your weekend on a beach or at a shopping mall and paint the town red or else you will see red. In a line, the film loses fizz sooner than you expect. Watch it only if you like Randeep Hooda. He is fab in the movie.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-6/10
Laal Rang spins an unhurried but engaging tale of love, friendship, heartbreak and redemption against the seamy backdrop of Haryana's blood theft racket. An understated thriller that keeps the conventions of the genre at bay, it has no gunfights, no big chases, and no stylized, in-your-face jabs at generating edge-of-the-seat excitement. It explores several tangible relationships, most notably the one that develops between the protagonist and a young drifter

  • Rediff | Review By -Namrata Thakker Rating-5/10
Laal Rang does not pack a solid punch because of its choppy storyline. Also, since the film is set in the heartland of Haryana, all the characters speak in Haryanvi, which after a point becomes too much. If you don't listen carefully, you may miss the point. Frankly, it's okay if you do because Laal Rang isn't worth your money or time unless you're a die-hard Randeep Hooda fan.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Suparna Sharma Rating-5/10
Laal Rang is a scary, well-researched film loosely inspired by incidents in 2002 involving the illegal trade of blood. It’s an investigation into and an expose of this very dangerous and scary trade. It’s a story about hospitals, syringes, many bags of blood with dangling bloody tubes, men in masks and coats, path labs, critical patients and desperate family members.

  • News 18 | Review By -Sameeksha Rating-5/10
'Laal Rang' becomes a tale of bromance and love more than a bloody thriller. Randeep Hooda does everything in his capacity and emerges as a star but overall the film is as average and as predictable as Monday breakfast. Wish Syed Ahmad Afzal could use the provided talent in a better woven script. Give it a watch if you are a fan of relationship drama and for Randeep Hooda's impeccable Haryanai avatar.
