ScorpiusMaximus: 3/5 Review on Shagird Movie By indian1969 : Encounter Cops in a Topsy turvy world

RAWANIVIKAS: film shagird is a ok type film

vivekranjit: #Shagird - Have to agree to what @KanoonKaBaap said. Its a poor man's Race (Abbas Mustan wala). Weighed down with an overload of twists.

surrealpsycho: saw Shagird... dragged the good idea a bit too much... but a golden moment of Himesh bashing and the idea of a cinephile cop was worth it

santoshvasandi: Shagird :lacklustre,insipid,drag,heavily inspired by 2 masterpieces : Ab Tak Chappan and Kaminey.can't believe same guy directed Haasil.

manahil_khan: Shagird (http://www.santabanta): Shagird is not devoid of merit. What works are some of the dialogues and Na...

Elninowski: #Shagird def isnt Haasil. The 2nd level casting n prodn value is very sub-standard.

I liked it. Nothing particualrly new and towards the end drags a bit too much with repeated twists. But still worth a watch for Nana alone. His cinephile persona and obvious Himesh bashing was worth the money.
