wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Principal of a message on simple living + Interest of a goon trying to turn good should have equaled to some real fun moments with a subtle message running through but = not-so easy installments of lectures against taking loans

Thumbs up by Janhvi Patel, StarBoxOffice ...Arjun is effortlessly suave and cool and as delectable as dark chocolate. He looks gorgeous, sexy makes you laugh and is perfectly cast as the DJ... full review

So-So by roshni mulchandani, Bolly Spice ...For those of you who are looking for a light-hearted comedy with Sanjay Dutt still in Munnabhai mode, then you're in the right place.... full review

So-So by Hetal Adesara, Business of Cinema ...The songs are forgettable and add nothing. Notwithstanding that, the romantic number between Dutt and Matondkar is watchable as it's short and sweet.... full review

So-So eTalkIndia ...EMI could have been a classic piece of work, but is totally ruined. In any case, it does have its share of laughs and well executed scenes.... full review

So-So Indicine ...Urmila Matonkar looks better than we last saw her in Karzzz, but her laugh should be dubbed, its terrible. Arjun Rampal does well. Malaika Arora Khan sizzles her way through. Rest are okay.... full review

So-So by Ashok Nayak, Now Running.com ...To sum up, watch EMI only IF you're a diehard Sanjay Dutt fan. Else, just wait for the DVD.... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The premise is fun and unique but bogged down by extraneous scenes.... full review

Thumbs down by Baradwaj Rangan, Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express ...EMI is one of those films that feels compelled to end with a message flashed on screen: Take loans responsibly.... full review

Thumbs down by Abhishek Mande, Buzz18 ...Unless the makers offer you tickets on instalments and don't send recovery agents after you, give this one a pass.... full review

Thumbs down fullhyd.com ...The second half has some good comic lines and parts, with Pathak valiantly filling in for what Arshad Warsi would have fit best, and a song - the climax tune - is fairly decent.... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...this movie could have raked in the moolah if the script had not gone haywire in the second half... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, IndiaFM ...It starts on an interesting note, but transforms into atypical masala film, where the 'Bhai' plays the good Samaritan... full review

Thumbs down by Gaurav Malani, indiatimes ...The next time any call-center employee pesters you with free credit-card offers, recommend EMI to pay them back.... full review

Thumbs down by Amit R Agarwal, merinews ...the film is cast in an escapist fare and is given a feel-good feel.... full review

Thumbs down by Subhash K Jha, Now Running.com ...Tragically the narration doesn't follow the golden rule of survival.... full review

Thumbs down by Goher Iqbal Punn, Radio Sargam ...The film looks absurd when the recovery man fastens the belts to solve the defaulters’ problems and also falls in love with one of the gorgeous defaulters, Prerna (Urmila Mantondkar)... full review

Thumbs down by Syed Firdaus Ashraf, Rediff ...Posters and promos don't make a film... full review
