So-So by Sanskriti Media, AOL INDIA ...All in all, Kidnap solely survives on the high risks manoeuvres of the kidnapper. The film's commercial value is kept intact. Music score is seemingly mediocre, nothing special there.... full review

Thumbs down Apun Ka Choice ...Had it not been for Imran Khan , Sanjay Gadhvi’s movie Kidnap might have been a good nap.... full review

Thumbs down by Baradwaj Rangan, Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express ...Will Minissha Lamba’s cleavage distract audiences from a script so preposterous, a David Dhawan enterprise would appear, in comparison, a model of clear, calm logic?... full review

Thumbs down by Abhishek Mande, Buzz18 ...If there is one thing that Sanjay Gadhvi gets right in Kidnap, it is the casting. By making Vidya Malavade play Minissha Lamba's mother, Gadhvi (inadvertently perhaps) manages to appease the small but growing tribe of men who drool over older women.... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, ...Thanks to Imran's successful debut and Sanjay Dutt's presence, this film will do brisk business for the first few days.... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, IndiaFM ...KIDNAP fumbles, stumbles and falls on its face. The cat-n-mouse game is hardly enticing and that is its biggest drawback.... full review

Thumbs down Movie Talkies ...Kidnap begins promisingly the premise is strong and even the treatment of the opening credits sets you up to expect a great film , but unfortunately you are left disappointed with the treatment of a screenplay which otherwise could have made for a very enjoyable film.... full review

Thumbs down by Anupama Chopra, NDTV ...Shibani Bhatija's script, about a young man who seeks revenge on a rich businessman by kidnapping his daughter, probably sounded good on paper. On screen, it is undiluted comedy.... full review

Thumbs down by Subhash K Jha, Now ..."Kidnap" is a thriller gone so wrong, you wonder if criminals in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh would believe the clumsy way Imran Khan handles the whole abduction.... full review

Thumbs down Planet Bollywood ...KIDNAP is a film that aspires to be a Hollywood style thriller but with the conventional Bollywood revenge plot thrown into it. Ultimately, it’s a movie that works as neither.... full review

Thumbs down by Elvis D'Silva, Rediff ...Bollywood has a long history of promising way more than it delivers so nobody will be really surprised to see so much effort being tossed into promoting a product that clearly suffers from a case of 'too many plumbers attempting to cook'.... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...Director Sanjay Gadhvi must concede that his two super-successes Dhoom and Dhoom:2 bring with it a cauldron of expectations. The main flaw with Kidnap is its failure to convince us of the said situation... full review

Thumbs up by Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India ...Sanjay Gadhvi's thriller may be low on Dhoom this time, but young Imran Khan more than makes up for the sluggish pace and the mediocre script.... full review
