Blue Review – Mindblowing Garbage
Folks, the first serious reviews of Akshay Kumar’s Blue are starting to come in and the depressing verdict – Trash.
Blue is Trash.
What can we say?
Given Akshay Kumar’s recent history of delivering fetid garbage like Kambhakkht Ishq and Chandni Chowk to China, we are not surprised at all.
Not one bit surprised that Blue has turned out to be unwatchable trash. After all, Akshay Kumar is the Trash King of Bollywood.
Just look at Akshay’s recent movies Kambhakkht Ishq, Chandni Chowk to China, Singh is Kingg et al.
Horror shows, all.
Here’s what Indian newspaper DNA has to say in its review of Blue:
But even as Blue tries to emulate every Hollywood film in the action genre, it hardly matches up to any of them. It instead ends up, embarrassingly, like a poor B-grade film from the west. Bad Boys anyone? Nope, this one’s just bad.
If we were Akshay Kumar, we’d slash our wrists for repeatedly churning out shitty movies. But the bozo is not one to heed our sage counsel.
And what does the DNA review have to say about Akshay Kumar in the movie Blue?
More bad news here.Â Not good at all:
For the actor himself, the film is a new low. Every time you step in to watch a Kumar film now, you are expecting something nonsensical, but you hope it at least entertains you in the bargain. After disappointing you every time in his last – we’ve lost count now – few films, this one just makes you hope that he’ll finally realise that a film also needs a script!
New low for an Akshay Kumar film? What a surprise!
New low is par for the course with Akshay Kumar.
So, dear readers, in these hard economic times we’d urge y’all to think carefully before you splurge money on trash like Blue. After all, Akshay Kumar is a serial trasher (forgotten Kambhakkht Ishq, Chandni Chowk to China, Singh is Kingg?).
Think a million times if you want to squander money on trash like Blue. This is Money that could put a bigger smile on your children’s faces this Diwali, buy a small something for that special person in your life or provide a meal to those less fortunate than you. All money well-spent.
Money spent on Blue = Money pissed away.
By the way, here’s the full review of Blue from DNA.
And if you thought DNA was the only reviewer critical of Blue, you’d be so mistaken.
* Here’s what Rediff has to say:
It sets a new benchmark in squandering money and opportunity.
This film is an example how even with Rs 100 crore — the reported budget — worth of eye-popping gimmicks and stunts, you can make thriller that ends up being hilarious.
And that’s largely because of the ridiculous plot, the inane dialogues and plain bad direction.
*Â The review from Sify is as critical:
Spectacularly foolish and devoid of a cohesive story, the filmmakers of Blue expect the viewer to buy the ticket, munch on popcorn and be happy watching some Dhoom-type bike chases, sharks swimming indifferently and Lara Dutta in a bikini.
Blue Review – Mindblowing Garbage
Into the Blue Review – B Grade Junk
Kambakkht Ishq Review – Must Miss, Sick Garbage; Donâ€™t Waste Your Money
Chandni Chowk Review – Slit Your Wrists, Akshay
Singh is Kinng: Akshay Kumar Buggers 500m Desis
Nice advice 😀
And this movie is said to have cost Rs 100 crore.
Added excerpts from Rediff review. Thanks.
Review from rediff.com has also given a thumbs down to Blue.
The producers should be lined up and shot for entrusting Rs 100 crore to a newbie director.
If you are lining up people, let’s start with serial trasher Akshay Kumar. Kambhakkht Ishq, Chandni Chowk to China, Singh is Kingg and now Blue.
review from sify (beileve it or not they have given just 1 and a half star 😀 )
Added excerpt from Sify review to the above post.
I agree Akshay Kumar is the KING OF TRASH…
All his pictures suck.. he just creates the hype everytime and has a good opening but his producers are not able to recover full money back…
In Kambakht Ishq he had the hype of Stallone and Denise Richard, this time he has Kylie Minogue…
I had gone to Russel Peters show last night in University of Maryland.. I think I would spend money on watching that again and Akshay Kumar movies…
Just got out of Blue in NJ.
Garbage. Must Not watch movie.
“All the Best” by Ajay Devgan is a copy of a tamil film “Viswanathan Ramamurhty” starring Vivek, Ramki, roja and a new gal. Rohit shetty (director) must be so tired now writing this script.
As for Blue, the producers are now turning pale as they put 100 crores into the coovum. Money could have been better spent and the morons do not get it yet.
1. A Vivek movie remade in Hindi?
How low has Bollywood fallen!
2. Just got out of Blue @ 2:30 PM ET.
Blue is plain Garbage.
SI, as an aside, another story to chew upon:
Interesting. Very interesting
just 1-1/2 stars….
It deserves 100 negative stars.
Wow! How much time did everyone spend here in searching for bad reviews? Because all I could find is good reviews especially from prominent newspapers and links.
Waiting for the movie to be released here.
1. You write: Because all I could find is good reviews especially from prominent newspapers and links
Really, you urgently need help.
Besides the above excerpts from DNA, Rediff and Sify, here read more ‘good reviews’ for Blue from prominent Indian reviewers:
1. Blue sinks without a trace – IBNLive
2. An incredibly dim-witted underwater thriller that has the most unintentionally hilarious climax since…. – NDTV
3. Blue is a perfectly good example of what money canâ€™t buy-quality.- WOGMA
4. Blue disappoints – Buzz 18
2. You write: Waiting for the movie to be released here
Well, Blue had a fairly wide release in the North East.
Good job. I would go with Ndtv and ibnlive. So is that it or there are more because it still does’t match the number of links that I can provide you with good reviews pal and I am sure it won’t be hard for you to find them either. Either way even if critics review were all that people would go with to decide whether or not they would like to watch the movie than all the Hollywood production companies that produce high budget movies would go bankrupt. I know the movie has been released in North east but not in my city.

You are right.
And your logic applies more so to Bollywood.
In India, since the hoi polloi have a long tradition of worshiping those with power, pelf and prominence, Bollywood (or its smaller siblings) has nothing to fret about over a few critical reviews.

As if anybody here gives a flying fu*k who you go with, what you do with et al. 😉
No my logic applies to NRIs. Just look again at the top 10 Indian movies in US. I never asked anyone to give a f*uck about what I think. I don’t give a f*uck about what you think and I expect the same from you 🙂
Wow! So many f*cks in such a short comment.
My, my you must be you in a state of deprivation. 😉
