Radio - External Reviews

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

Superb, outstanding, fantastic, mindblowing - IT'S NOT! Quirky rom-com it is. Same old story told with a slightly interesting narrative style. Not enough to make a movie worth going out for.

So-So by Nikhil Kumar, Apun Ka Choice ... Himesh seems to be trying too hard to cement his footing as an actor because the effort he makes to get his act right in ‘Radio’ is quite apparent in his performance.... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Garimella, ...dialogues and situations are corny. For example, there's a scene in which the trio, for the heck of it, break crockery at a restaurant and make other guests do it as well. The best actors during that scene are the pieces of crockery - and the members of the audience, for having acted like they were awake.... full review

Thumbs down by Susan Jose, India-Forums have to accept Himesh's music is original. But the choreography and the settings of the songs will make you remember Savage Garden's Ooh I want you, Shania Twain's Don't be stupid, Khuda Ke Liye's Bandeya, Ronan Keating's When you say nothing at all and Backstreet Boys' Get down.... full review

Thumbs down by Mihir Fadavanis, ...since Himes bhai doesn't resemble Brad Pitt, it is hard to digest the fact that two saucy, intelligent girls have the hots for him.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Radio’ also uses that other word ‘closure’ before it, well, closes. ... full review

Thumbs down by Gaurav Malani, indiatimes ...Himesh Reshammiya lacks screen presence so much so that when he is pondering on a park bench, Neena Lalchandani overshadows him. Neena who, you ask? The inscribed name to whom the park bench is dedicated to.... full review

Thumbs down by Joginder Tuteja, Now ... the songs are soothing but they are so many and come in quick succession that they tend to become distracting after a whil... full review

Thumbs down by Dipen Shah, Rediff ...Shenaz is passable but newcomer Sonal really needs to improve her acting skills if she wants to retain her career... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The main sore point is that the divorce is shown as the wife’s fault who screams incompatibility and files for divorce even as he begs her not to.... full review

Thumbs down by K N Gupta, ...The audio track is a true winner and reinforces his expertise, both as a singer and a composer. ... full review

Thumbs down by Jahnvi Patel, StarBoxOffice ...A few songs are copied from English numbers (Teri Meri Dosti is uncannily similar to Shania Twain's Don't be stupid), Jaaneman's video borrows elements from Ronan Keating's When you say nothing at all and the ladder scene between Himesh and Shenaz takes you back to Richard Gere and Julie Roberts in Pretty Woman minus the passion and chemistry.... full review
