Indicine | Indicine Team

Total Siyappa promised us a big fat comedy. What it really delivers is a big fat letdown. It is unfunny, mimics a desert barren of humour, and the nature of humour they are trying to show just doesn’t work within the realms of a realistic looking film. At the end of the film even the 110 minutes you spent in the theater seems stretched and long. If your money is dear to you, catch this film on TV instead.

Total Siyapaa is total madness. An audacious comedy that dares to poke fun at a border issue, the film is stylised and is attentively staged.

Bollywood Life | Namrata Thakker

Ali Zafar as the hapless Pakistani boyfriend is tolerable. Though his act was impressive in Tere Bin Laden and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, this time the singer-actor’s comic timing does not hit the bulls eye. Yami Gautam is not even tolerable. The Vicky Donor babe just doesn’t fit the role. It seems as if she had no idea what was expected of her. Also, the chemistry between Ali and Yami is too blah and absolutely thanda. Anupam Kher should have just stayed away from this role that doesn’t match his calibre as an actor or an acting school owner. It’s sad to see an actor with such talent being wasted. If there is one actor who stands out in Total Sipayaa it is Kirron Kher. She is brilliant throughout the film and the only reason why people in the cinema halls did not mind staying and watching this movie instead of just walking away midway

Among its only real praise, Total Siyapaa isn’t a victim of botched-up performances. The acting by Yami, Ali and others is fine, they’re not stealing scenes but they aren’t responsible for its downfall either.

Bollywood Hungama | Taran Adarsh

Since Neeraj Pandey is credited with adapting the Spanish film, you expect him to deliver a spirited tale replete with laugh-inducing situations, eccentric characters and unfortunate coincidences, but the writing appeals intermittently. It would've been great to see the peripheral characters [father, brother, sister, bro-in-law, grandpa] contribute to the wacky goings-on, but the screenplay limits their growth. The curse of the second half, which plagues most Hindi films, looms large here too. There's not much scope for director Eshvar Nivas in such a scenario, although he handles a couple of sequences with poise. The soundtrack [Ali Zafar holds the additional responsibility of scoring the music] is decent. 'Palat Meri Jaan' and 'Nahi Maloom' are catchy compositions.

Total Siyappa is a lesson in knowing that merely seeking inspiration from international films isn't enough one still has to work on the script to make it palatable. A complete waste of a good plot.

Bollyspice | Aashi Gahlot

Total Siyapaa does not work as emotional intelligence seems completely missing from the awkwardly racist threats and jokes. There is no clear explanation of any emotional transitions and a plot overload irritates the viewer. Not to mention, the character of the English policeman feels patronising, over the top and too artificial.

Director E. Niwas made the biggest mistake by casting actor Ali Zafar in the film of this genre. We are not saying this because Ali Zafar doesn’t act well, but because he comes with a baggage of not passing jokes on our neighbors.

The Times Of India | Madhureeta Mukherjee

E. Niwas' story (adaptation of Spanish rom-com 'Seres Queridos') shows flashes of madness peppered with some 'LOL' dialogues, but the screenplay (Neeraj Pandey) is insipid and loses its comedy metre too often to entertain throughout. The plot had potential to induce much more hilarity (picture this: a dabba of frozen soup could change Aman's love life!), but it quickly deflates. In parts, it zestfully breezes through sensitive issues (POK, terrorism and Shahid Afridi) with political incorrectness, but decent humour.

Total Siyapaa is something that you just sit through. In the right frame of mind, it won't seem bad enough that you are enduring it. But, it does have immense potential do that to you. The characters just aren't engaging. It then is all left to the situations, the dialogue and the actors.

Glamsham | Martin D'Souza

Anyways, given that starting hiccup, Niwas manages to take the viewer on a roll in the entire first half with a splendid display of guile and craft as Asha takes Aman home. The pandemonium that follows is well-captured. The entire movie is wrapped up in one evening!

Sify | Sonia Chopra

Director E Niwas (Shool, ) gives us a film devoid of conviction. The film had potential to be poignant, funny and romantic, but sadly it’s just a little of all three. Even at its short running length, the film looked like it had run out of a story in the second half.

Mid-Day India | Shakti Shetty

Other than one scene where there's a short quick-witted exchange between the two protagonists, there's not a single memorable quote in the entire film. There's hardly any romance in the film, and there isn't much comedy either.

IBNLive | Rajeev Masand

Despite the giddy pace, it soon becomes clear that there's not enough of a story here, merely a string of gags. The thin plot is stretched out until it collapses under the weight of its contrivances, squandering a good cast, particularly Kirron Kher as the shrill Mummyji. Such a shame that the film's central conflict evaporates conveniently and unconvincingly in a hurried, all-too-neat finale.

Indiaglitz | Vishal Verma

The cast do their job. Kirron Kher is typical as she was supposed to be for the role. Ali Jaffar okay. Yami decent. Anupam Kher annoying, Sara Khan pretty and Badola fine. It will better for the highly talented Neeraj Pandey to 'palat' (go back) to the genre he is known for. As a writer such comedies are not his cup of tea.
