Rush - External Reviews

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

Rush is a crime drama that you've to struggle to keep awake through mainly because of a sluggish first half. The second half goes to fifth gear in such a rush that you are taken through the proceedings way too quickly.

So-So by Priya Sharma, Bolly Spice ...Makers need to be told that to insert songs in a thriller is somewhat of a cinematic crime! ... full review

So-So by IANS, Bollywood Life ...Far-fetched, yes. But Rush has its adrenaline rushing moments in the second half when the narrative picks up momentum... full review

Thumbs down by Malvika Rao, BookmyShow ...For Hashmi fans. Good concept derailed by a mediocre plot. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mayank Shekhar, Daily Bhaskar ...This one seems to be set in an alternate universe, where laws and police don’t exist, and television ratings rule the world. The film could seriously work as a bleak view into a disturbingly scary, fictionalised future. ... full review

Thumbs down by Ameetbhuvan, Desi Martini ...Emraan Hashmi is the spine of Rush, playing a journalist who gets sucked into his ambitious boss's ring of crime. He speaks a lot, delivers a decent performance, even kisses and manages to srape through.... full review

Thumbs down by Cinefreak, Desi Martini ... Not one actor bites fully into their role, Hashmi mostly perfunctory, while the ladies shed skin and appeal one and all with glamour.... full review

Thumbs down by Vivek Bhatia, Filmfare ...Neha Dhupia plays the sophisticated and sexy, hell on high heels quotient. She looks the way she’s supposed to but she has nothing to offer in the film, except trying to bed Emraan (which doesn’t work too).... full review

Thumbs down Free Press Journal ...The scripting is half-baked, the characters appear to be caricatures rather than flesh and blood and the narration is un-ambitious. ... full review

Thumbs down by Nupur Barua, Full2 Faltu ...Emraan Hashmi sleepwalks through his part - he has done this a hundred times... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, ...Emraan Hashmi starts well with his style and character, but as the narrative moves ahead, he too looks lost at several places, hence detoriating his performance in a big level... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Deogire, ...a dull affair!... full review

Thumbs down by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Target ...The theme has enough merit to explore the skewed nature of the fourth estate in relation to our lives. Rush however uses the drama merely to create temporary thrills that a cat-and-mouse game generates.... full review

Thumbs down by Apurv Bhatia, koimoi ...Sagarika Ghatge after a long gap is seen on screen once again. She is all dolled up and looks pretty but her acting skills are a bit unpolished.... full review

Thumbs down by Shaheen Parkar, MiD DAY ...The late director Shamin Desai may have shot this film some years ago and all those associated with it were keen to make it see the light of day. The efforts are laudable. The film does not look jaded because of the subject --- crime. ... full review

Thumbs down Movie Talkies ...Don't Be In A 'Rush' To Watch This! ... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...Gary Shaw, DoP of the marvellous and moody Moon, has shot Rush. You may want to see the effect Bollywood can have on the über -talented. In the end, the movie is too neat, lacks punch, and has too many explanations.... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...Not only is the film shot tackily but courtesy the time span that it took to complete there are far too many continuity flaws, especially in the look of Emraan Hashmi that can clearly be noticed and end up annoying the viewer's eye.... full review

Thumbs down by Rohit Khilnani, Rediff ...Emraan Hashmi plays his part with honesty but it doesn't look like his contribution will save this film.... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...That the film has not been completely thought through is evident in its miniscule yet jarring errors, like messing up designations (editor-in-charge). (When was the last time you saw a TV news journalist endorsing a product?).... full review

Thumbs down by Bhawana Somaaya, Star Blockbuster ...n present times where the electronic media plays an integral role in our social interactions, Rush highlights the complexities of the profession... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...To add to the grief of the already bored audience are the songs that pointlessly pop up every now and then creating a complete Bollywood potboiler feel. ... full review

Thumbs down by Srijana Mitra Das, Times of India ...But there's bad news too - no amount of lip gloss, nor shiny suits can hide poor acting, which Rush features plenty of. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shomini Sen, ZEENEWS.COM ...The scenes are badly enacted and dialogues are equally badly written. Some of the scenes lack sense... full review
