Much fun and gore - a combination I never thought would've worked. But owing to some witty dialogue and perfectly timed dialogue delivery make Go Goa Gonea watch well worth it.

So-So by Anna Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...Go Goa Gone is particularly disappointing because it comes right after Raj and Krish’s brilliant 2011 film Shor In The City.... full review

So-So by Nikhil Kumar, Apun Ka Choice ...The music, both songs and background, is topnotch and blends seamlessly into the film’s fabric; cinematography too is cutting edge.... full review

Thumbs up by Baradwaj Rangan, Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express ...This isn’t just the instance of a big hero opting to inhabit a juicy character role, the way Khan did in Omkara, or an attention-grabbing guest role or special appearance. Here, he’s literally one the gang, playing a part that clocks up less screen time than his costars. ... full review

Thumbs up by Prateeksha Khot, Bolly Spice ...Another actor who leaves you impressed is Saif. Saif’s peroxide haired Boris doesn’t exactly have the biggest screen time but Saif seems completely at ease with it. ... full review

Thumbs up by Tushar Joshi, DNA ...The dialogue is urban, contemporary and very current. The writers definitely have a pulse on what's hot at the moment and create the right moments between their characters.... full review

Thumbs up by Deepa Deoshthalee, Film Impressions ...Banking on excellent performances for most part (the chemistry between the boys is crucial), Go Goa Gone is a trippy little gem that would have been scintillating if it were a tad tighter. ... full review

So-So by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare ...Good comedy but strictly okay zombie flick... full review

Thumbs up by Piyasree Dasgupta, FirstPost ...In fact, while you don’t expect a film like this to do it, Go Goa Gone does take up stereotypes perpetuated by Bollywood and invite you to have a good laugh at them. ... full review

Thumbs up Free Press Journal ...Arindam Ghatak’s uncomplicated editing, Lukasz Pruchnik and Dan McArthur’s textured cinematography and Clara Alvarez’s production design adds distinction to this lively and highly entertaining niche product.... full review

Thumbs up by Nupur Barua, fullhyd.com ...The second half falters a little, in its pace, but picks it up very soon. There is not a single dull moment. ... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...After you have been bludgeoned with gibberish, there is a smart line the female lead asks the others around her. The question is almost like rubbing salt on the wounds of the audience. ... full review

So-So by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times ...I think the trouble with Go Goa Gone is too much cleverness and not enough plot.... full review

So-So by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...So much in this film is good until it all goes nowhere... full review

So-So by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...The lines are sassy and smart up to a point, and then start sounding forced.... full review

Thumbs up by Abhimanyu Kanodia, Indicine ...Go Goa Gone is definitely not a “Zombieland” of Bollywood in terms of style and action but it’s not far behind either and with that special message for the youth it deserves to be applauded. ... full review

Thumbs up by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...Vir Das’ straight faced, matter of fact style of comedy is bone tickling to the core. Along with Kunal Khemu, their duo holds this profanely funny film tight.... full review

Thumbs up by Nandini Ramnath, Live Mint ...Go Goa Gone occasionally assumes the sluggish pace of one of its zombies and moves determinedly in the direction of zombie-movie predictability, but the hilarious repartee is never far behind.... full review

Thumbs up by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...definitely worth a watch if you are looking forward to an evening of smirks and giggles... full review

Thumbs up by Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Blog ...Funny, Wacky, Cheeky!... full review

Thumbs up by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Camera work is superb and all the locations of Goa and Mauritius add the charm to the film. ... full review

Thumbs up by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...Even though the film is short and ahem, alive, there are still some stretches which seem repetitive because of the nature of the characters and story... full review

Thumbs up by Saibal Chaterjee, NDTV ...Made by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK (whose films thus far have demonstrated a healthy disregard of things predictable), Go Goa Gone thrives on an imagination that is allowed to run riot. ... full review

Thumbs up by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com ...Go Goa Gone is a helluva adventure ride that leaves you in splits right till the end. A must watch for one and all. ... full review

So-So by Shubir Rishi, Rediff ...Vir Das. The guy has no clue what the hell he is doing. Or what the hell is going on. For being called ‘India’s answer to Jay leno’ and ‘a comedian to watch out for,’ he sucks.... full review

Thumbs up by Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters ...To enjoy Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK‘s “Go Goa Gone“, you have to ignore the tacky effects and the bad make-up and concentrate on the wisecracks and repartee between the main characters.... full review

Thumbs up by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...Kunal Khemu shows his talent as he doubles up as a dialogue writer along with the filmmakers to come up with some of the most whacked out, tongue and cheek dialogues that work well with the masses. ... full review

So-So by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...A harmless mindless mostly fun film that’s apologetic about its drug content... full review

Thumbs up by Gaurav Malani, Times of India ...And while horror and humour go hand-in-hand in the film, the makers ensure they don't mix up the genres, which essentially is the biggest accomplishment of the storytelling. ... full review

Thumbs up by Meena Iyer, Times of India ...positively different from anything you seen before.... full review

Thumbs up by Mr Care, Upper Stall ...There are times when the film gets a little obvious, especially in introducing the idea of zombies to the audience. No doubt with the intention of ensuring that a lot of people in India who have not seen or heard about the concept are not alienated. But this is a rare blip. ... full review

So-So by Rummanna Ahmed, yahoo! India ...What I like about the film is that the makers know that they are dabbling with the absurd and yet, they don’t try to force-fit the story into a typical Bollywood framework. ... full review

Thumbs up by Ananya Bhattacharya, ZEENEWS.COM ...Anand Tiwari’s comic timing is praiseworthy. The actor does a good job of performing the seedha-sadha Bunny – that guy in every group of friends who is the hardworking of all and the one who, as he rightly puts across, is the ‘hero ka friend’.... full review
