A Prabhu Deva film that doesn't flaunt his dancing skills. I am all for a film that is willing to offer anything that is not expected. Unfortunately, just because it is unexpected doesn't make it enjoyable. Tutak Tutak Tutiya showcases Prabhu Deva's acting chops alright, but is totally confused between being a horror, romantic and comedy film. In turn, you are just about amused by what's on, on-screen.

What can you do but smile at a character who wants a “modern” woman for a wife? So, much for being modern, right? What can you do but breathe deeply when he swats a woman he doesn't want to date, shows interest? It's supposed to be a joke, slapstick, you see? What can you do but shrug because you have resolved to take a joke lightly?

Thankfully, Tutak Tutak Tutiya doesn't stay with these things for too long and moves on to other things that make little sense. But, hey it is horror, there are ghosts. It has the license to not make sense. Given that, there is a lot of room to get creative. Especially when you have chosen to take the comedy route. Surprisingly, they do. There is one scene in which the ghost takes a different turn to harass the other characters. Within the context of Hindi films it is novel and amusing. Also, the CGI is pretty neat.

The other surprise is in the form of Tamannaah Bhatia. She takes on her Jekyll and Hyde role pretty well. Even if, in those roles individually, she is expected to hold only one expression. It is still a relief from the plastic doll roles. Prabhu Deva on the other hand is alright when scared but is unconvincing when trying to be a snob.

Then comes the resolution. The mild interest that might have generated with the protagonist's dilemma - between being scared and helpless against a mean ghost and wanting to do right for the good person that his wife is - is squashed with the most ridiculous climax of them all. One last chance to amuse you with its silliness doesn't go vain. That's all I can say.

So-So, by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com : ...Overall this is no doubt a rare, clean, comic-horror film which can simply be recommended for a time pass routine watch on a TV Channel, but not for a theatre viewing for sure involving a big cost. ... full review

So-So, by Gaurang Chauhan, Bollywood Life : ...Coz I went for this film with zero expectations, I enjoyed it for most part. The film is like those dubbed south Indian films you enjoy on TV. It is illogical but no one’s complaining. Hard nosed intellectuals should stay away. The film has 126 minutes run time and it’s entertaining. It’s the kind of film you watch, enjoy and forget. I am going with earnest three out five. Go in and enjoy the film. ... full review

So-So, by Dev Raj Gulati, Desi Martini : ...What's the end result? T3 has an element of 'surprise' hidden in the plot in the second half.Go for it. ... full review

So-So, by Sidhant Shori, Desi Martini : ...TTT simplicity has a lot going for it. It has no pretensions about what it is and isn’t trying to push an agenda. That alone makes for a refreshing change these days from the other films bollywood is putting out. Back that up with solid performances by the two leads and the side cast, and you’ve got a movie that makes for a decent one time watch. ... full review

So-So, by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare : ...Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a formula driven movie where there isn't an iota of realism or grit. This is pure popcorn fluff where the hero makes a thousand faces, the heroine looks helpless one moment and sexy in another. But the frivolous nature of the movie doesn't get in the way of its entertainment. The writing effort of Chintan Gandhi helps make the film funny and engaging. It's not the best film ever made, but it is a perfectly fine candy floss movie that can help you Sail through the weekend. ... full review

So-So, by Jaiwantika Dutta Dhupkar, fullhyd.com : ...Tutak Tutak Tutiya tries to get too much into one film and fails utterly. It might even have been embarrassing to watch if a hundred other similar films hadn't already been made in the past. In any case, it's totally not worth your while. ... full review

So-So, by Vishal Verma, Glamsham.com : ...All said and done TUTAK TUTAK TUTIYA embarrasses the rom com genre with its ghostly spoofy hands that entertains and delivers the laughs. We have seen hilarious incidents surrounding ghost in Bollywod, WELCOME BACK graveyard episode still brings the laughs. TUTAK TUTAK TUTIYA is a rare comedy on ghost; hope we get such ghost laughter's more in future. ... full review

So-So, by Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times : ...If you are looking for an entertaining, paisa-vasool movie, Tutak Tutak Tutiya should be your pick. Prabhudeva’s comedy and of course, his dance is what makes this worth it. Look elsewhere for a soul-stirring piece of art. ... full review

So-So, by Kunal Guha, Mumbai Mirror : ... A lot weighs on Tamannaah Bhatia here, given the dual avatars she dons, and she delivers convincingly in both. Sonu Sood, also the producer of the film, contributes with what he does best — going shirtless and playing a love-struck bonehead who is naive enough to be duped.... full review

So-So, by Troy ribeiro, NDTV : ...Overall, while the film is engaging and intriguing, it suffers from a fatigued second half and an absurd ending. But nevertheless, it keeps you in splits. A better star cast would have elevated this film. ... full review

So-So, by Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India : ...Despite being a tad underwhelming, Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a fairly enjoyable film that can be watched on a family outing. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Rahul Deo Bharadwaj, Desi Martini : ...The end result is that this movie which is about 130 minutes longs ends up becoming a drag. The plot just does not move. The best performance comes from Murali Sharma as the star secretary. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Bryan Durham, DNA : ...Prabhudheva can dance and we know that it works. Why not a little more of that, please? ... full review

Thumbs down, by Johnson Thomas, Free Press Journal : ...Not much in terms of entertainment value for sure but the constant frolics into music and dance may well keep you engaged.... full review

Thumbs down, by Surabhi Redkar, koimoi : ...Tutak Tutak Tutiya is passable for a theatre watch. It’s entertaining in parts and could make up for a better TV watch! A 2/5 for this. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Manisha Lakhe, Now Running.com : ...There are many songs in the film but none memorable despite Prabhu Deva's dancing. Had the tale been told without wandering after every gag, the film would have been more enjoyable. Wait for it to show up on cable. ... full review

Thumbs down, Zee News : ...Overall, while the film is engaging and intriguing, it suffers from a fatigued second half and an absurd ending. But nevertheless, it keeps you in splits. A better star cast would have elevated this film. ... full review
