• The shooting style in a lot of scenes and even the songs with spot lights on actors gives the feel of the 1980s cinema. We cannot recommend Rush.

  • Rush has the bone though not enough meat to make for a juicy fare on the excesses of television journalism. It leaves you wondering what director Shamin Desai would have done with his film making career had he lived.

    First, the good news – Rush has an interesting plot and great detailing, the latter unusual in Bollywood. Such detailing – irregularly placed photos in Samar (Hashmi) and girlfriend Ahana’s (Ghatge) home, favourite coffee mugs from which media tycoon-types sip their whisky, a T-shirt cheekily promising ‘Endless Vacation’ landing a billionaire in jail – add heft to this tale.

  • Rush is a half baked, uninspiring flick that evokes no response. The below average movie deserves a 1.5* from my desk. Watch it ‘only’ if you are an Emraan Hashmi fan. But in my point of view this reporter definitely needed a better script to hit the Home Run.

    On the whole, RUSH looks like a rushed job. It could’ve been an interesting take on ambition and aspiration, but it comes across as a half-baked product.

    Rush has all the elements to not let you sleep. It has an unnecessary thumping background score and over-the-top dialogue. So if you decide to go for this film, do yourself a favour and carry along a crocin strip.That might just help.

  • RUSH had the potential to be a decent flick but too many gaping holes in the script let the plot down at crucial stages.

    You leave Rush feeling moderately satisfied. It’s a predictable but well executed script that keeps you engrossed quite a bit. Granted the climax is a let down and there are flaws in the screenplay, but the film remains something that is decent one-time watch. Watch it for the performances and the thought-provoking epilogue.
