• The film then isn’t unwatchable, but at 2 hours and 35 minutes, it certainly tests your patience. How many times have you ordered a dish that looks terrific photographed in a menu, but disappoints when it shows up on the table? Bang Bang is that kind of meal.

    Hrithik is the film’s eye candy and the prime shooter, all rolled into one, and gives you some amount of bang. The rest is burble.

    This is a stupid, stupid film trying to be slick, a B-grade film made on an A-list budget.

    Bang Bang is one such film, where the lead actor looks engrossed and too careful about creating a brand image. He believes whatever he is doing is going to be applauded by the audience.

    It’s also like that biscuit ad where everybody is running after a truck. The actors look perplexed but the brand somehow remains in the memory. The postcard images and toned physiques may help the audience in brand recall, but without any value.

    Bang Bang! is pure Hrithik porn.

    A star as big and stunning as Hrithik needs grand outings. So the script of K&D was bought, a gorgeous woman signed, locations short-listed and extras handed out a page each detailing their expressions and lines.

  • Bang Bang is strictly for Hrithik Roshan fans and for those that do not want an action flick to be anything more than just that.

    Anand’s film has no grammar. But it compensates with breathtaking locales and stylishly choreographed stunts. It also works as a show reel for the bronzed Roshan with his six-pack abs and the enviable midriff of Kaif wearing a red polka-dotted bikini top. Their horseplay caters to an audience that is low on IQ and high on adrenalin!

  • The script too is amateurishly written. There are hardly any plot points, just a showcase of Roshan’s good looks and dancing abilities (you can’t be a burglar if you have two left feet), and a plot twist involving the diamond that trumps Vidya Balan’s “baby” in “Kahaani” in terms of sacred MacGuffins. Thankfully, he has enough charm to make us stomach the film, but not enough to steal our hearts.

    If your idea of a fun film is watching two good looking stars running around senselessly for two hours and thirty minutes then go and watch Bang Bang.

    The makers have put in a lot of money. Is it wasted or well spent, only time will tell. I would suggest you save your hard earned money and watch Bang Bang on TV someday soon.

  • Bang Bang is a plain film that is mounted on a breathtaking canvas and remains steady at the superficial level only. Low on logic and more on frills and airs, the best thing about Bang Bang is Hrithik Roshan. He sincerely drives the film with his swagger and hot bod droolworthy looks, with Katrina aiding him with her cutesy innocence. But the lack of inventiveness in Bang Bang irks me. When I am done with ogling at the stunts and stars, I have nothing to remember it by.

  • …the film’s wide release during the long holiday should definitely work in its favour. Add to that, the popular starcast of the film will ensure that the movie sails through comfortably at the box-office. Another plus point to BANG BANG is that it has the least opposition from HAIDER at the box-office. So, if you are looking high-octane action scenes, sleek visuals, melodious music and if you love masala movies, then BANG BANG should definitely be your pick for this extended weekend.

    Both the lead characters are not in their element- Katrina was not exactly Meryl Streep to begin with but she is embarrassing in some scenes. Hrithik also looks like someone who is not particularly interested or convinced in the proceedings. It would be fair to say that the stuntman did more work than him in the film. In one word, this film is avoidable.

    Bad execution aside, if you’re going to watch Bang Bang! do so with an open mind. And watch it for the most beautiful couple in b-town Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif. The heavenly panoramas of Himachal Pradesh pale in comparison. That alone should be worth the price of an admission ticket.

  • ANG BANG is such intelligent madness that it will make you cringe in your seat. Apparently, it’s supposed to be a remake of the Tom Cruise-Cameroon Diaz starrer Knight and Day. I’m sure the writers (three of them) could have done a better cut-paste job. Copy karna toh itna mushkil to nahi hai!

    Bang Bang is a string of scenes as unexplainable as the one before it. From the get go you’re confused and even once the film concludes you’re not quite sure what happened in that final hospital scene. Did he just quit his job, did they betray him or is he just taking a hiatus? By that time your brain is numb and your care factor is zero. I wouldn’t call Bang Bang unwatchable but it sure as hell comes pretty close.

    Bang Bang gets the boredom quotient bang-on. The rest is all noise and fury about a diamond, Kohinoor no less, stolen from a British museum. The way the thief carries the precious ‘diamond’(which looks like a paperweight) around in his pocket goes to show how little a certain group of filmmakers respect the audiences’ intellect.

  • ‘Bang Bang!’ is less about logic, and more about fluff. And, that’s not a bad thing, if it had been done well. But, ‘Bang Bang!’ ends up being an unimaginative ogle-fest. Clearly, technology has handed us more options than just Bollywood to go for.

  • Hrithik, Katrina show how explosively dumb Bollywood can be…

  • Bang Bang! shows you the lengths that a woman has to go to convince an Indian man to make love to her. Silver lining: few men or women are as stupid as Rajveer, Harleen, so there’s hope yet for the rest of us.

    Bang Bang! is a super-hit because it offers entertainment galore and has something for everyone. It will break a lot of box-office records and could end up joining the Rs. 200-crore club.

    Bang Bang is an amalgam of exotic locations, power-packed action and good looking actors. If that’s enough good for you, if you are still looking for the story hit the next screen and watch Haider.

    No logic here! Watch it if you want to see amazing action, or you are a fan of Hrithik Roshan.

  • If the reasons above to sit through over 150 minutes of this movie are good enough for you, feel free to bang your head against the seat in the front.

  • Overall, ‘Bang Bang’ is a complete let down. The film has nothing really to offer expect some breath-taking action sequences and a sizzling hot chemistry between Hrithik and Katrina.

    Watch the film only if you are a fan of either of the two actors!

    If no logic and only fun infused with dhamakedaar action is your motto, then Bang Bang! is the perfect movie choice. And all you die-hard Hrithik fans, head to the nearest theatre and ogle at his finely chiseled body. Also, if Bollywood’s Barbie – Katrina is your favorite actress, do watch this film to enjoy her cute, innocent character. But remember to overlook the acting element. Else you might leave the cinema hall feeling disappointed. Go Bang Bang! this weekend.

    An adventure film with a huge scale with Hrithik awesome dance moves paying tribute to MJ (Michael Jackson) traveling around the world to Prague, US, Thailand, Greece romancing the ravishing Katrina Kaif.

    Despite all the blemishes, Bang Bang is certainly worth a watch. Hrithik and Katrina will keep you entertained throughout.

  • Fans of Katrina Kaif shall not be disappointed with her cutesy act (which she nails) and her jerky dance moves. But then there’s Roshan—freshly worked out, hair carefully set. He makes light of the action scenes with as much confidence as he glides across the dance floor. He alone puts the bang in ‘Bang Bang’.

  • But the film ends as badly as it started, saved by the lead actors-cavorting-in sexy wear song at the end credits. Most people hung around for that and left swooning about the beauty of the lead actors. If you’re content doing that, plus enjoying a few over-the-top stunts, book your ticket.

  • I can’t completely put the film down. At least, true-blue action stunts are being attempted. They might not have been executed well, but hopefully it will get better with the next film or the next. Meanwhile, though this is meant for some other long weekend, one which has the film running on TV with the luxury of flipping channels.

    Bang Bang is one of the breezier Hindi-language action packages of recent times, but that really isn’t saying much. The bar, albeit sparkly, still remains at the same desensitized height. It can best be described by my first answer when asked how the film was – ‘Houseful’.

  • Here’s a Bang Bang dare. Watch it twice back-to-back without dropping dead of boredom…

  • JPN


    Bang Bang drives the audience crazy and certainly gives goosebumps. Hrithik is also seen grooving a la his dance idol, the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, while Katrina tries to give him tough competition with her sizzling moves.

  • Bang Bang justifies the humongous buzz created in these days. Go for it as Hrithik and Katrina are in there to amuse you throughout.

  • Don’t miss the action on big screen people. Just watch it for fun, Bang Bang is a total action-packed fun entertainer for this long weekend holiday.
