The ‘film’ is excruciatingly awful only for non-believers...

MSG The Messenger is a feature-length advertisement you’d be best advised to forego...

Not necessarily in a good way, but the film offers lots of chuckles and a healthy dose of laughter if you endorse the view that too much tragedy is comedy. In other words, it’s so bad, it’s good if you’re one to pick the positives and watch a film just for kicks.

Thank your stars if you manage to survive this ordeal with all your faculties in one piece. But why would you take the risk in the first place?

If you want to give yourself a hearty laugh, go watch this film. Take in the glitter flashed by Ram Rahim Singh’s colourful clothes and sing along with him as he gives hilarious performances on Roobaroo nights. Most importantly, go watch this film to realise how fear of God can influence people. I laughed initially but now I sit back, wondering on whether we can truly ever understand the meaning of God.

Fans of Guruji couldn't have asked for more. They will laugh with him and others will enjoy in their own way as they laugh at him!

A long-running propaganda film that aims to advertise self-proclaimed saint, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, his comical clothing sense and the cavalcade of his ludicrously modified vehicles. It wants you to worship him and do the exact opposite of what Raju Hirani’s masterpiece PK wanted you to do. The amount of money that has been spent on this nonsensical work is a tight slap on the faces of indie filmmakers who are running from pillar to post for funding. This film doesn’t deserve your attention, and it doesn’t even fall the ‘so bad it’s good’ category. Pass it on and do something worthy with your day.

MSG is not a movie as much as it is a vehicle of propaganda for Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. Watch it if you've been planning to break up with someone, but don't want to be the one to initiate it. This will give your significant other the perfect reason to initiate the break up.

...a film that can be watched once... purely for the dynamics and the histrionics of the endearing Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, whose onscreen antics seem to make the onscreen antics of Rajnikanth look like a child's play!

MSG which doesn’t stand for Monosodium glutamate and was known as Messenger of God, now is just The Messenger. It is also one long commercial telling us about the exploits of one man. Had it not been 197 minutes long, it would have topped the so-bad-that-is-good charts.

-

End of the day, this is a commercial Hindi film. It’s as masala as it can be. Complete with half a dozen songs that are shot like kitschy and corny music videos. You have A-grade visuals, top notch make-up, a bevy of bad actors playing bad guys and Guruji eradicating evil with consummate ease. It all seems like a surreal Sunny Deol movie with a very obvious religious hangover. There’s so much glitz, action and high drama in a movie about men having godlike ability. That’s replete with the supernatural skill of being able to produce incandescent beam of light from your hands. The kind we usually associated with the deities. If all that doesn’t entertain you, then so help you God.

I did try hard to look for that charm and charisma that his 'five-crore' followers see in him. Fortunately or unfortunately, I couldn't see anything beyond the shenanigans and the 'herogiri' and of course, the overwhelming megalomania.

No miracle can equal the one that this film represents.Having sat open-mouthed through MSG I can hardly wait for the further adventures of Guruji.

-

You can laugh with the movie, and more so at the movie. It’s a win win. I reckon the censor board wanted to ban the movie for being too awesome. There is literally no better way to spend your valentines day than taking your date to watch the Love Charger.

I have watched MSG –The Messenger, and survived.And if the average small town moviegoer or multiplex elite are going to take someone like Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singhji Insaan seriously, they deserve all the fraud and disappointment that comes their way.

Love him or hate him but you just can’t ignore him. Sant Gurmeet’s antics in the film are so bad that they are actually impossible to miss. Watch it only if you think you can survive it. Not in a good way, but the film offers a good dosage of laughter all throughout.

    MSG: THE MESSENGER - No Message, Only Bakwaas

    Central Board of Film Certification(CBFC) denied release certificate to MSG. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh(47) lent support to BJP in Delhi election so BJP cleared the movie, making CBFC head Leela Samson resign en masse and infilling CBFC with BJP cadres. Singh's influence can be seen from the results of Delhi election where BJP ate the humble pie of getting 3 / 70 seats(Article 370!). This is the revenge or will of God. The Godman and the religious party both lie demolished.


    Many states officially and some unofficially banned the movie. But to the horror of Sikhs, the movie did release on Friday the 13th. The Godman's bhakts had to be bus-lifted to pre-booked theatres with pre- purchased





    tickets, that were distributed in Godman's bhakts villages. Don't know if popcorn and pop too were distributed free in the theatres. And later crocin and panadol for the headache the movie is.


    After demolishing religion and politics, the movie released. And despite the Indo-Pak match on Sunday, it did manage to garner Rs 2.50 crore, thus entering the number 10 spot of 2015 Top 10 Movies. This record was possible because all the releases this year up to now are SHITTY(Baby, Tevar, Roy, Shamitabh, Alone, Dolly Ki Doli, I, Khamoshiyan, Hawaizaada, MSG).


    The only reality and'God' of today is money and the Godman rides over due to this factor alone. For there is nothing spiritual about in the movie. There is no God in the movie except the Godman, who in all'humility' claims that he is insaan(he was doubtful!) and fakir!


    This movie is the 8th wonder of the world. The Godman himself is a wonder for he does everything - act, dance, sing, write, fight, the whole 9-yards. Next year all the National awards will go to this movie for it is simply unique. And even the Oscars and the Grammys! Gurmeet is the first Godman, to make a movie and release it too. The movie is based on a noble cause - eradication of drugs and other vices from today's youth. Suffice it to say, if he wants to help today's youth, he should create jobs for them instead of turning his black money to white.


    The Godman does not resemble any hero. There are no heroics except a over-decked up podgy hairy hairy(giving stiff competition to Anil Kapoor), who thinks he is God's answer to all evils on earth. He also has 3-4 heroines dancing to his tunes. This is enough to make you cry. Are the times so bad that nubile nymphets are made to cater to this .'s whims and fancies.


    My head is spinning, actually blowing. I can't feel there is any brain left, forget intelligence. This Godman needs immediate acting lessons. And even after that, it is remote that he can ever act! It's a wonder how he inspires his legions of bhakts. I really pity them. Poor souls. Why fake Godmen are making a mess of Indian faiths time and again? When will public come to their senses?


    After watching this'movie', I've a message of my own. To reach out to God, you don't need Godmen. Pray sincerely and spiritually. You don't need anything in between God and you. This Godman himself needs worldly goods and pleasures. What can he do for Indian needy and poor? Shame upon him. He should spiritually connect with God. He should to his job of a Godman and never act. Jiska kaam usi ko saajhe. Aur kare toh danda baaje.


    The icing on the cake is the sequel to this'movie' too is getting readied for a release later this year. Sir mundaate hi ole pade! Can hardly digest this first part. My hair are rising even at the thought of it. This is truly horrific! This is not a movie. When last heard, Aamir Khan went into depression finding a rival to his PK!


    Bachche ko rulayega, kya?


    BTW, the ratings are single as nothing below single is available. So, this is not reflective of my true rating, which is of course .000000000000000000.

    Well, what to say for this bad movie. It's so bad that you'll laugh at every scene of it. From his(baba) clothes to his overacting ( or no acting), the movie makes you laugh. But one thing which really concerns me is where is Indians going. Can't baba followers see what kind of a mad person is ram rahim. Wake up fools
