Bittoo Boss - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch when on TV (?)
quick review:

Bittoo Boss has a couple insights about society and its outlook towards porn and sex. But it puts these points across in a dull, jerky manner and often without energy. Not discardable, neither enjoyable.

Thumbs up by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare ...He’s not as charming as Ranveer Singh, but the man looks like a real acting talent. His co-star and leading lady Amita Pathak doesn’t look or feel like her part.... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, ...Mohan Kapoor and Rajinder Sethi are strictly ok. One might like Vikky the cab driver.... full review

So-So by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...'d be giving away too much if I went into how this film ditches the quirky potential of its premise, and instead goes down a silly, sanctimonious path. ... full review

Thumbs up by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Entertainment ...It is in those moments of tests that the real Bittoo comes to light and Pulkit’s even acting sees it through effortlessly.... full review

Thumbs down by Mrigank Dhaniwala, koimoi ...Watch Bittoo Boss if you want to see a debut making director’s honest effort. But do not expect to be entertained a lot.... full review

Thumbs down by Udita Jhunjhunwala, Live Mint deserving special mention is Ashok Pathak. As Vicky, the driver who later becomes Bittoo’s assistant director, he is at once funny, sleazy and pitch-perfect.... full review

So-So by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...Bittoo Boss as a film is exactly like the video Bittoo shoots. A little rough around the edges, not the most technically accomplished, it captures all the singing and dancing and feel good no matter how ugly the behind-the-scene action of real life gets.... full review

Thumbs down by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...Ashok Pathak as Bittoo's sidekick, overacts. ... full review

Thumbs down by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...Their decision to resort to the ‘Love, Sex Aur Dhokha’ way in seedy Shimla Honeymoon hotels makes for an interesting premise. But again, there is only sparks of promise, and the effect of some poignant scenes fizzle out as soon as we head towards a badly-contrived, badly-written, badly-filmed climax sequence ... full review

Thumbs down by Kunal Guha, yahoo! India ...‘Bittoo Boss’ is a bit too much of what the director believes works. It subscribes to the 'formula' with little thought to application. A bit too bore is more like it.... full review
