Tutak Tutak Tutiya Review by Bollywood Hungama

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The promos of TUTAK TUTAK TUTIYA were good enough for the audiences to get a feel of what to expect from the film. The film, in totality does not disappoint the eager viewer, thanks to the film’s novel screenplay (Vijay and Paul Aaron) of horror comedy. Even though the film’s dialogues do not tickle your funny bone at the drop of a hat, it is decent enough to sustain the humor level of the audience. After having set his directorial flag flying sky high down south, Vijay makes his Bollywood debut as a director with TUTAK TUTAK TUTIYA. One has to really appreciate the finesse and patience with which he has treated the entire film. With a film that boasts of a ‘different’ genre, there were many places whereby the film could have gone astray. But, thanks to Vijay’s able direction, the film never loses its track. While the film’s first half sets up the atmosphere for the story, it’s the engaging second half that really ups the excitement and comedy in the film. Even though the second half does look a bit stretched at handful of places, it does not hamper the film’s narrative, which works majorly in the favour of the film.

Tutak Tutak Tutiya Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express

Rating: ½☆☆☆☆

This basically means a series of grimaces and groans studded in a risible script, in which we rapidly lose all interest after we’ve finished smiling weakly at the leading man’s accented Hindi as the boorish Krishna, and his puerile attempts at getting rid of a doormat of a wife (Tamannah Bhatia). The horror is supposed to arise from the plot point which gives us another side to the servile biwi via a ‘bhoot’. Yes, a sari-wearing docile frump can turn into a modern girl in short clothes with starry ambitions in the company of Bollywood superstar Raj

Tutak Tutak Tutiya Review by Gaurang Chauhan on Bollywood Life

Rating: ★★★☆☆

It’s a Prabhudheva show from start to finish. He is bit awkward in the first scene but gets his groove and shines throughout. His comic timing is amazing and he is believable in emotional scenes. He is the life of this horror comedy. Tamannaah plays her part perfectly. Her voice modulation is good and she showcases the two character personalities with perfect ease. The comedy scenes are actually funny and director Vijay handles them well. Special mention has to be given to ever dependent Murli Sharma who is top notch as Sonu Sood’s manager. The film never takes itself too seriously, which works in its favour. The story by Vijay and Paul Aron holds your attention for the most part and is intriguing. The dialogues by Chintan Gandhi are funny.

Tutak Tutak Tutiya Review by Indiaglitz

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Director A.L. Vijay marks his debut in Hindi films with his multilingual film ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’. He comes up with an interesting tale which gets diluted due to additional glamorous track of Sonu Sood. Also, the movie has been treated like a South Indian film due to which it looks more like a dubbed film. It’s a good opportunity loss for this director. Sonu Sood looks great but ends up being a victim of half backed character. There is nothing new nor concrete to offer in his stale and boring track. Nassar’s cameo was wasted. ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’ has mild fun only due to presence of Prabhudeva and Tamannaah, which gets highly diluted due to dragging screenplay and weak track of Sonu Sood.

Review by Sweta Kaushal on Hindustan Times

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Sonu Sood, who plays the superstar making a film opposite Ruby, also impresses with his performance. If no one has cast him as the lead in a comic film yet, filmmakers might want to break some old traditions and sign him after watching the film. 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.

Review by Manisha Lakhe on Nowrunning

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Sonu Sood’s Shah Rukh hangover finally finds a super outlet, and he does have flashes of resemblances to the star through the film. It does get tiresome, and you wish they’d wrap up the film within a film soon. But the gags continue and we begin to feel the fatigue creep in. So much so that the end shows up quite conveniently. Tamannah Bhatia does not have too much of a role except to wear ‘heroine’ outfits and dance, change costumes and dance. Oh yes, she needs to widen her eyes in anger and in her ghost role. The South Indian housewife scene with the puja aarti and a towel tied on her wet hair is so real, you can actually smell malli-poo (common flowers worn in their hair by women in South India ) in the theater. Murali Sharma is good as the stereotypical star secretary. 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.

Review by Renuka Vyavahare on The Times Of India

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Boasting of a clean family humour, Vijay doesn’t try too hard to please his audience and gets brownie points for keeping things sweet and simple. The movie does not pretend to be smarter than it is and that’s a welcome relief. The special effects in a particular scene are impressive as well. The gorgeous Tamannaah, slips in and out of her two diverse characters Ruby and Devi, effortlessly. She even manages to match her dance steps with the great Prabhu Deva. Though he displays a good comic timing, the latter doesn’t have much to do except for acting surprised owing to his wife’s situation. Sonu Sood makes an extended cameo and renders a restrained performance. He does justice to his superstar character that is not caricaturish or clichéd. Despite being a tad underwhelming, Tutak Tutak Tutiya is a fairly enjoyable film that can be watched on a family outing.

Review by Bryan Durham on DNA India

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Sonu Sood has an interesting, if somewhat underwhelming, role. Then there’s Prabhu who tries hard, a little too hard in fact, to seem believable. Tamannaah is who you’re going in to see. As the only eye candy and someone with a dual-identity role to brag about, she has everything going for her. Vijay barely manages to keep it all together. People like Krishna exist. And that is the sad part. Those people will like this film. There are going to be those in love with seemingly harmless entertainment like this. The music is nothing great. The humour even more forced than one would expect. You’re going to wonder why such films even get a Hindi release like this.

Review by Arnab Banerjee on Deccan Chronicle

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Sure, most romantic comedies are predictable, unrealistic and corny. But some films are so bad, they’re actually good. These are the kind of films whose screenwriting, acting and developments are so unforgivable they leave you more embarrassed than entertained. Watching this horror-comedy evoked getting lost in a plot with too many possibilities of a story idea that goes bonkers with many unneeded variations. In trying to resolve loose ends in a weak storyline, the director falls flat. There may be a certain amount of mystery in the twisty narrative, but sitting through it there’s just as much frustration as well.

Review by IANS on NDTVMovies

Rating: ★★½☆☆

With moderate production values which are well exploited, the visuals by cinematographer Manush Nandan are aesthetically shot. With fine video effects, the computer generated images integrate seamlessly with the live action shots. This is evident in the scene where Krishna tries to escape from his house and the door panel eerily shifts and rotates, blocking him from escaping and when he does, drops him back into the room. 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.

Review by Kunal Guha on Mumbai Mirror

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Watching a Prabhudheva film is an experience because he has the ability to translate beats into moves that evoke delight and surpass the laws of physics. He also takes to comedy with fluid ease. While the material offers little to work with, he manages to put up a show worth sitting through. 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.

Review by Vishal Verma on Glamsham

Rating: ★★★☆☆

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.

Review by meeta on Wogma

Rating: ★½☆☆☆

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.

  • This year most of the Movies which we were expecting good they were big failure.So best of luck to next biggies like
    DANGAL,
    Ae dil hai mushkil,
    Befikre and
    Shivaay

  • Ye Shubhra Gupta half star bhi kyon deti hai ? Iska bass chale to ye to Avatar ko bhi 2 star de de 😂 !

  • If these type of films getting reviews above 2 then it will be a good film to watch. I will watch tomorrow!

  • All are paid critics except indicine n koimoi

    Myself believe these are just policts played by editors who is nothing in front of audience reviews.

    Same medias are exploiting each movies

    Eg :

    Mohenjo Daro

    Can anyone fight with real crocodile
    Can anyone predict what name should the movie needed
    If chaani (pooja) who is princess are you talking she need to wear tribal dress that wore by lower side people
    If she wore Mukud (head) y should others care even after interval she removed it
    Vfx is not poor but to manage there budget they managed there best vfx

    Guys you check indicine Mohenjo Daro review
    One or three critics only talked about Hrithik Roshan acting and performance

    If the same movie was made with Amitabh bachhan or Salman khan or Amir khan or Akshay kumar
    It would not be biggest disaster
    Coz of hypocrisy media and negativity on youtube Hrithik fame just lost ( already he is in trouble with kangana ex silly issues )

    Beware Hrithik and Hr Fans
    Medias n public are still violent
    Coz of Hrithik hidden nature on kangana issues

    Dont say Mohenjo Daro movie content is not good
    Even though its just history means story
    So we should consider as like that

    But clashing with powerful Rustom movie is the one of failure of Mohenjo Daro Team otherwise nothing is calculable

    Not only #Kaabil Trailer from now Hrithik professional and courier could be exploited through Hrithik and kangana gossip and tragedy

    Proud that im Hr fan
    But its time for Hrithik Roshan to come out and speak on kangana issues

    Lets Pray for God
