Rascals is Total Garbage, Say Critics

The first reviews of David Dhawan’s Rascals (Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, Kangana Ranaut) are out and they are overwhelmingly negative.

The reviewers have basically puked on Rascals.

Here are excerpts from a bunch of reviews on Rascals:

Times of India:

Rascals is what one can call a ‘vacation’ filmmaking stint where everyone works on the film as if they were on a ‘holiday’ and the audience is expected to ‘leave’ their senses behind. The actors make least efforts to add conviction to their performances and the patchy writing just allows them to play as they please. Invariably the director tries to camouflage the shallowness in the story by adding depth only in the decibel levels of the dialogue delivery….Rascals ends up being a silly and stupid comedy!


The gags in Rascals are so stale and tasteless and the situational comedy so devoid of any kind of originality or freshness, you wonder if David Dhawan just made this unfunny comedy to please his friends who play the major roles in the film….Two long painful hours of mirthless gags and skits adding up to no sense of hilarity.


For his latest Rascals, starring Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn, Dhawan sponges a bunch of comedies from his own stable and outside to rustle up a series of misadventures that are dumb, dated and dreary. But that’s not its only problem. Rascals, with no structure or motive, cannot (rather does not even try to) conceal its desperation to make itself funny. And this insecurity shows in each and every gag.


David Dhawan must really hate us. Or maybe he wants to exact revenge on his audience. That must be why he subjected us to this three-hour monstrosity that is called “Rascals”….Dhawan hasn’t even bothered with a coherent script –- it’s almost as if everyone connected with the film landed up on sets and asked themselves, “now what juvenile gag can we come up with today?”….This is the cinematic equivalent of torture. Avoid at all costs.


David Dhawan, who’s no purveyor of good taste, plumbs new depths of crassness with this expectedly insensitive film that’s so short on real jokes that it makes light of everything from starving orphans in Somalia to the physically handicapped….Donate your cash to charity instead of wasting it on this wretched film!

    even people who put up with this kind of stuff and even seem to enjoy it, have rejected the film as shit…

    What else can be expected with the presence of a non-actor like sanjay dutt & a so-so actor like Ajay devgan??

    Sometimes I deeply think why do they even make & release such type of films!!

    Its a mystery which hasn’t been deciphered yet!!

    Off-topic :

    Have you seen Mounam Sammadham (Mammotty, Amala) & Poovizhi Vasalile of Sathya Raj ???

    2 old nice movies of Tamil?? 😛

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    We’ve seen several films of Sathyaraj but can’t remember their names.

    But the only one we remember is the one in which he keeps committing rapes, after each rape throws the girls lingerie on the ceiling fan and utters the famous line:

    Yaen characterayae purinjika mataendranga (they refuse to understand my character).

    Mounam Sammadham? No, we haven’t seen it.

      Funny about Sathyaraj!! 🙂

      I request you to watch Mounam Sammadham

      Its a good murder-mystery movie.

      Good performances by Mammotty & Amala!!

      Y.Mahendran also features as the comedian.

      It’s an old class flick!!

      I believe you’ll find it good.

      Also decent music in it.

      If possible please watch that movie & do let me know!!

      I suggest so because there are good actors & no presence of non-actors like Ajith or Trisha in it!! 😉

      Ok? 😀

    Hey, if I had a rupee for every dumbass who came into bollywood and claimed to act, I’d be a f*cking crorepati by now…kareena, priyanka,aishwarya,abhishek,ajay and a trillion others prove my statement. As does sanjay in this shitpiece aka rascals…even the bollywood ass-kisser times of India says the same, so you can expect the movie to be pathetic.

    Speaking of which, are you gonna risk your sanity and review rascals?

    You write: Speaking of which, are you gonna risk your sanity and review rascals?

    Are you out of your mind? No, don’t answer that because it was merely a rhetorical question.

    We’d rather throw our money on booze than watch a movie featuring that Gandu criminal aka Sanjay Dutt.

    for a nice laugh…

    How is this clown different from Vijay, Ajith or Vikram?

      “How is this clown different from Vijay, Ajith or Vikram?”

      You kidding. Vijay, Ajith and Vikram were never bald and never funded their own films. At least their looks are tolerable.

      This guy is going to release 4 films from his own pocket money (Now, that’s a BIG POCKET).
      And to add insult to injury, he invites or rather pays money to people to watch it in his theatre and then pays for publicity.
      WTH, this guy paid a theatre in madurai to run his LATHIKA film for 100 days. This guy has a Himalayan EGo and an Astronomical Bank Balance. Plus, he has support from Politicians like Dhol Thirumavalavan, The leader of Dalit Panthers of India (DPI) aka Viduthalai Siruthaigal

      With 72 million people, there are bound to a lot of colorful clowns.

      When we develop AIDS, Herpes or some other equally horrid disease, we plan to visit this good Doctor and ask him to poke his acupuncture needles in us. At least, it’ll be fun to listen to the joker blabbing and we can forget the pain for a few minutes. 😉

      Do you guys just see one comment at a time or what.. I did write’silly me’ just below whats with the idiot thing??

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      You write: whats with the idiot thing

      Well, if you have to ask, after your stupid comment, then you’re a double idiot. 🙁

      A couple of years back, when we woke up we used to process comments from the top (i.e. from the latest to the oldest).

      Then some ‘idiots’ complained that their comments were processed later although they had posted earlier. So, now when we wake up we go straight to the oldest comment and start processing in that order (i.e. oldest to the latest).

        We don’t give a rat’s ass whether you schmucks come or go. 🙁
