Fuddu Review by Reza Noorani on The Times Of India
Fuddu marks the directorial debut of Sunil Subramani, who has chosen a poignant subject that will resonate with the blue-collared residents of Mumbai. However, the film is special only in moments — the rest of the time; it’s a montage of cliches.
Fuddu Review by Namrata Thakker on The Rediff
Fuddu’s story isn’t void of loopholes but the makers have tried to play around a new concept and that’s commendable. How middle class people in Mumbai adjust and live in their small houses is quite a relevant topic. The end is silly but overall, the film was fine. It would have been better if the makers hadn’t added songs, including the special number with Sunny Leone and Sharman Joshi at the end. Fuddu may not be a great film but it’s better than all those Bollywood movies which make oodles of money but have no story.
Fuddu Review by Kunal Guha on Mumbai Mirror
Shubham is about as committed as that mouse who walked out of a bowl of milk, having curdled it. Unfortunately, the script is sufficiently spiked to ensure dimaag ki dahi happens. Swati Kapoor is confined to appearing teary-eyed in most of her screen time and her character barely manages to find her own feet. The supporting cast does little to influence the mood of the film and director Sunil Subramani, who has assisted Anurag Basu for almost two decades, fails to make up for the inadequacies in the story by Pawan Kumar Sharma. Fuddu is a dummies’ guide to sexist, misogynistic cinema. And if you so desperately crave moving images, stare into a microwave instead.
Fuddu Review by Indiaglitz
The story is highly inspired and also has many frame to frame scenes similar to the scenes from Jaya Bhaduri’s film ‘Piya Ka Ghar’. It’s just that the writers have presented it in today’s times and have focused more on the physical intimacy issues. If only there were few more emotionally strong scenes in the film, the impact would have been more hard-hitting and memorable.Sunny Leone and Sharman Joshi’s cameo song in the end credits is wasted. ‘Fuddu’ is a light hearted fun film. The message attached to it might be wrong but on entertainment level the movie makes its right mark.
Fuddu Review by Kunal Guha on Nowrunning
A young man comes to Bombay with dreams and even though he manages to find himself a job, and gets married, he is unhappy. Living in a room with his two brothers and their wives and kids, he is unable to make love to his wife, who ups and leaves him. Is he the ‘fuddu’ people label him o will his parrot fly out of the cage? You come away wanting to shower after watching this… This swamp thing.
Fuddu Review by IANS on Indian Express
The dialogues are colloquial, witty and laced with the right amount of humour that is relatable. The film is Shubham’s canvas and he is convincing as Manoj. He brings the right amount of energy and realism to his character, playing his role with convivial ease and flourish. He has a pleasant screen presence and has the audience one with him in empathy. Swati Kapoor as Mohan’s wife Shalini is equally convincing. She matches Shubham in histrionics, but unfortunately, she does not have much screen time. Vicky Ahuja as his older brother Shyam, and the others, in supporting roles perfectly complement Mohan on screen.
