Sajid Khan’s directorial ‘Humshakals’ featuring triple roles of Ram Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Riteish Deshmukh, receiving a totally negative review from critics.
Shubhra Gupta from The Indian Express has rated movie with Zero star, stating ‘It is two-and-a- half hour show reel of plot-less, witless’. Saurabh Dwivedi from India Today Network has rated it with half star only. He compares it with Himmatwala, saying, ‘If Himmatwala couldn’t break your limit of endurance, Humshakals definitely would. Watch Humshakals only if you want to test your patience.’
According to Deepanjana Pal from First Post, ‘If you’re thinking of watching Humshakals, here’s a suggestion. Don’t do it. There are better things you can do with your money and being swallowed alive by a python is less excruciating than watching Sajid Khan’s latest attempt at making a movie.’ Saibal Chaterjee rates the movie half star stating, ‘Humshakals is an execrable comedy of horrors that plumbs the depths of stupidity and crassness.’
Divya Solgama from Moviezadda.com states ‘The movie has lots of flaws and stupid scenes that might not appeal at all to the intellectual crowd and the ones expecting it to be even at par with Sajid’s earlier comedies. ‘Humshakal’s might be like a ‘Ham-Specials’ for many, but for the ones who enjoy this genre, it’s a time-pass masala entertainer that sadly ends up as a three ring circus.’ [Rating 2/5]
Here is a list of Rating from All the film Critics out on Internet Media:
|Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times||0.5||Humshakals has little to offer except dim-witted comedy|
|Saibal Chaterjee, NDTV||0.5||Humshakals is infinitely more insufferable. Even if you possess plenty of himmat, use it elsewhere.|
|Deepanjana Pal, First Post||–||Humshakals is so bad, that you’ll need Valium to watch it|
|Saurabh Dwivedi, India Today||0.5||I can only say that Humshakals will be listed in one of the worst films of the century.|
|Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express||0|| From |
past experience, you have to go into a Sajid Khan film wondering just
how much of a dip there can be from the previous ones.
|Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama||1.5||HUMSHAKALS tries too hard to make you laugh, but fails miserably.|
|Raja Sen, Rediff.Com||0||Humshakals should be sued for cruelty to audiences|
|Mohar Basu, Koimoi||1.5||Loaded with indecipherable dim wit, the film is an odd mishmash of pathos and drudgery.|
|Divya Solgama, Moviezadda.com||2.0||Saif Ali Khan performs very badly in almost every scene and adds as a big negative point to the film.|
