Thumbs down by Anna MM Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...In the first half hour it does seem like R…Rajkumar might actually offer that blend of humour and action that made Dabangg an enjoyable experience... full review

Thumbs down by Naresh Kumar Deoshi, Apun Ka Choice ...'R… Rajkumar' is a slambang actioner best avoided... full review

Thumbs down by Baradwaj Rangan, Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express ...But at least in the songs sequences, we see why Shahid was cast. Is there a dancer who moves as well as he does, and who radiates as much joy to the audience? Pritam supplies the film with just the kind of soundtrack it needs – catchy beats to go with the inventive nonsense-lyrics... full review

Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com ...Hence as mentioned in the above points, R….RAJKUMAR is surely a brave film made by a courageous team... full review

So-So by Shalu Dhyani , Bolly Spice ...R…Rajkumar is only for those who enjoy the South-style masala movies. If the offerings from the Prabhu Deva school of film-making have worked for you in the past, this one will too. Don’t take the kids... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...Shahid Kapoor gets to portray a mass-friendly character and he gives it his best shot. He's an exceptional dancer and emotes very well too, but, like I pointed out earlier, he looks far from real when it comes to fighting an army of villains. Sonakshi Sinha seems to be getting repetitive and needs to reinvent herself. Ditto for Sonu Sood, who plays the mandatory villain without much of an effort. ... full review

So-So by Neha Pinto, BookmyShow ...The film is entertaining, but leave the cinema hall, after the intermission, else it will leave you in bad taste.... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Gahlot, cinemaah ...This optimistic reviewer sat through two-and-a-half of torture, hoping that would be the final twist and perhaps justify what went before. ... full review

Thumbs down Daily Bhaskar ... Even if you are a big fan of no-brainer action thriller, we would suggest you to watch R…Rajkumar on TV ... full review

Thumbs down by Suparna Sharma, Deccan Chronicle ...Prabhu Dheva’s films are infantile fantasies that seek to gratify the fragile male ego and libido. Any further analysis of this imbecility would be a waste of time.... full review

Thumbs down by aneela.zeb.b, Desi Martini ...The movie is outstanding as you just want to sit/stand it out... full review

Thumbs down by Ameetbhuvan, Desi Martini ...stay clear. period.... full review

Thumbs down by Smita, Desi Martini ...Terrible movie stuck in a time warp. Don't even think about watching it ... full review

So-So by Somesh Sinha, Desi Martini ... An easy & forgettable watch... full review

Thumbs down by Tushar Joshi, DNA ... Watch it if you are in the mood for a loud no-brainer that relies on formulaic over the top entertainment. ... full review

Thumbs down by Suprateek Chatterjee, FirstPost ...Amplified by the terrible storytelling and an astonishing lack of aesthetics when it comes to anything that isn’t a song sequence, this film is a ghastly cocktail. They might as well have called it "R...Regressive"... full review

Thumbs down by FPJ Bureau, Free Press Journal ...The plot is circuitous, going around in circles even when there is nothing more to more to tell.... full review

Thumbs down by Swayamsrestha Kar, fullhyd.com ... R... Rajkumar is one of those films that make sensible people wish for miraculous things, like time-travel. That way, you can go back and prevent your past self from buying that blasted ticket... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...Prabhu Dheva's movies are getting as weird as his dance moves....

Thumbs down Hindustan Times ...R... Rajkumar attempts to make you laugh, but fails. ... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...The film is cinema of the most exhausting kind... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...I was left asking, why was R.. Rajkumar made? It is nothing but blank putrid noise. R.. for Rubbish.... full review

Thumbs down Indicine ...it is boring. repitative and regressive... full review

Thumbs down by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...R…Rajkumar is a below ordinary, at best Prabhudheva’s most modest work till date.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...Shahid Kapoor , Sonakshi Sinha and Sonu Sood might have put in sincere performances but for a movie that is so awful, all their effort seems to be in vain... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ... Well except for some foot tapping music, few action scenes along with few comical moments there is no special dum in this film. It is definitely better in terms of wholesome entertainment than the recent so called masala entertainers... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...Shahid Kapoor's still going at it hammer and tongs - putting every high energy bit of himself out there whether it is the action or the dancing. Wish he'd been given some space to act as well. And as for Sonakshi Sinha, well she's become a bit of a masala bunny now. You know, like Prakash Raj is. ... full review

Thumbs down by Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV ...The hero calls his lady love Lollypop. But expect no sweet delights. For the film, on its part, is pure poppycock. The only place that it should be heading to is the cleaners. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com ...R...Rajkumar is one of the weakest works of Prabhu Dheva and a highly banal and boring action-romance. ... full review

Thumbs down by Paloma Sharma, Rediff ...The film begins pretty well and Shahid entertains in bits but there's only so much he can do to make this kind of stuff work... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...Avoid unless you�re stuck in a time-warp.... full review

So-So by K N Gupta, SmasHits.com ...'R...Rajkumar' is a good action entertainer. But, one must add that Bollywood audience is bored of fights and guns without a good story... full review

So-So by Janhavi Samant, Star Blockbuster ... A lot of people will expect it to be like Rowdy Rathore, and in many ways it is. Self-aggrandising smart alec dialogues, stylish action sequences and absurd loud comedy... full review

Thumbs down by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...R...Rajkumar is downright crass, irresponsibly insensitive, extremely disturbing and in very poor taste... full review

So-So by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...While 'R...Rajkumar' entertains at some levels, it suffers from utter plainness and predictability. The raw action is impressive (Ravi Varma), the songs (Pritam) and the choreography are routine attractions. The second half seems like a sari too long and the comedy is often forced... full review

Thumbs down by Gaurav Malani,, Times of India ...At the end of it, all that remains with you is some 'gandi baat'. Quite literally!... full review

Thumbs down by Rummana Ahmed, yahoo! India ...R...Rajkumar’ is a huge disappointment because there is hardly a single praise worthy thing in the whole film... full review

Thumbs down by Gayatri Sankar, ZEENEWS.COM ...Watch the film only if you don’t love yourself!... full review
