A couple of reviews for Akshay Kumar’s Blue are out and both are extremely positive. One is a video review by Joginder Tuteja for Lehren TV (watch below) and other is a review by Taran Adarsh.
Taran in his review promises a never seen before experience “You haven’t watched something like this on the Hindi screen before. Never ever!” He is also all praise for the director Anthony D’Souza “It requires courage, will power, fortitude, vision and of course, the financial backing to accomplish a project of this magnitude. And debutante director Anthony D’Souza puts his skills and the financial resources to best use. Anthony D’Souza is a director to watch. This film has style as well as substance. Also, it requires courage and conviction to think out of the box and most importantly, execute the material with panache.”
The performances have come in for special praise too, especially Akshay who seems to have delivered his career best performance “Sanjay Dutt carries his part well, although he looks very well fed in some scenes. Akshay Kumar steals the show with a sterling performance. This would easily classify amongst his best works. Zayed Khan is highly competent. This, despite the fact that he’s sharing the screen space with two hugely experienced actors.”
Female stars Katrina Kaif (in a 8 minute long special appearance) and Lara Dutta have nothing much to do, yet they impress mostly with their beauty, charm and screen presence “Lara Dutta has never looked so good before. Though the story revolves around the guys, you can’t overlook Lara’s small but significant contribution to the film. Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and performs exceedingly well. The feminine charm would send the youth in a frenzy.”
So what’s the final verdict? 4 on 5 stars.. “On the whole, BLUE has style as well as substance. The film has everything going in its favour, right from its incredible star cast to the superb action scenes to the hitherto unseen marine life to the tremendous hype and hoopla.”
Time for Akshay Kumar fans and the industry to rejoice we think. First credible positive reviews for a Akshay Kumar movie in a long long time, add to it, great advance booking and a Holiday weekend.. A box office blockbuster? Lets wait and watch.
We also have the video review by Joginder Tuteja, he too is all praise for the movie and rates it 4 on 5. Some points
- 5 key action and stunt sequences, that keep the pace up for the film
- Bike Sequences are great.
- Underwater sequences are breath-taking.
- Blue has an international feel to it, compares it to James Bond movies!
- Coming to the negatives, Joginder criticizes the storyline.

not looking forward for ths film….akshay sucks!!
All the best to the crew of Blue. Akshay, you desrve the accolades. hands off to you.
akshay is one of the best actor if not the best in bollywood. this movie is going to rock mark my words!
It doesnít make any different whither you look forward to the movie or not. And at the same time mind your language; donít use stupid word on this site.
Blue is an excellent movie and akshay done wonderful job, waitefor the box office result in upcoming weeks,
As usual, Akshay Kumar is a boring, unmitigated nerd.
king kumar rocksssssssss, Blue Blue Blue.
according Taran Adarsh and Juginder Tanuja it never happened before in Hindi Cinema and both gave 4 Stars and it is very rare when 2 critics gave same rating. it mean movie is real good and now people are more mature and they wana see something diffrent like LOVE AAJKAL , A WEDNESDAY. So i am hopeful movie will be rocks like Ghajini as taran’s guess never be wrong… n i am going this friday evening for Blue and i ll let u know abt movie later on…
Do not judge early….Wait more review to come…..beacause I nowaday donot trust fully on Tarah adarsh because he gave donot distrub 3 and half movie,Acid factory 3 star and lot of minor mistake….But if he have give it 4 star ,this mean it will surely be atleast good and if other review is positive ,this movie will surely break or come close to Ghajni and one thing ghajni was single released but if it come close to ghajni then we have to see the difference and which make BLUE the most biggest hit
Hope akshay rock big time…..very big time…Waiting for indicine review….And Best of luck for blue…
very often taran adarsh’s reviews doesnt match my reviews and dont know anything abt this lehran tv so i will wait for official indicine review.
but hope indicine gives 4/5 too.
i will try to watch the muv 2moro 1st day 1st show…
@ SOME of the above discussions… I believe the article is about the film BLUE and NOT about comparing shah rukh and other actors. I know that you guys are huge fans of SRK but try not to impose it on every other article on other actors. ^.^ just my 2 cents.
Now, judging by these two reviews….I think I might end up loving this movie and Akshay offcourse. He has never really been my fav. but this might make him end up at higher numbers in my book. Also, I have absolutely no idea if the reviewers are famous, well in critizing or not? I’ll just wait and watch!
i am agree with taran akshay action kumar once again prove it versatality he is one and only one piece in india. if any buddy has bigger than akki is only mr. big B. i am go for first day first show dont miss this diwali use action kumar atom bomb.
blue roxxxxxxxxx. action is high quality and top-notch.akki, zayed roxx and lara and kat are looking at their sexiest best.though the story is not the greatest, but who cares with all those positives.
This film is going to rock no doubt and no wonder if Akshay steal the show in this movie apart from this the advance booking of the film is per ahead than other 2 films. Keep rocking akki. I watch de dana dan first promo it’s really another Akshay super hit movie, All the best Akshay and i am happy AKKI and SALMAN they rock this year by per.
Ahsan – you know what?? I DONT CARE!! and what if i tell you the same thing that dont say anything about SRK?? so dont tell me what to do!
bejul get a life -enough of ur attitude
ur not famous just human so act like a regular person not a superstar!
all actors do their best and all deserve to be appreciated
get a life and shut up!
i dont care if u dont care cuz ur opinion sucks and no one cares
Bejul .. Dont say a word about akki or his movie now.. watch movie then comment it.. you may be fan of sharukh but i am also fan of akki.. but i dont comment bad words on sharukh.. how would you feel when we (akki fans) use the words like “sharukh SUCKS”.. feels bad right ? so think before you write comments.. and one more thing it takes so much time,money,hardwork to make movies like BLUE.. and you guys are watching movies based on reviews and now days reviews are purchased and they are not honest.. so if you feel to watch movie then go and watch ones but dont watch movies after seeing the reviews.. ALL THE BEST for BLUE and TEAM..
CC2C HAD A GREAT HYPE , SAME WITH KAMBHAKT ISHQUE . AND AGAIN WITH BLUE , BUT THIS TIME GETTING
COMPETITION FROM TWO BIG MOVIES .
IT WOULD ME NO MORE THAN A HIT , IF IT HAD A GOOD STORYLINE AND DIRECTION.
Blue blue blue!!!

guys just search for ‘Blue review’ on google and then follow the links
BLUE IS A THRASH MOVIE
recommended for those people only who dont like any kind of logic in the movies
it has sum of the worst dialogues of all time
akshay looked gud but his dialogues(not his fault ) lets him down
are there any young people present in bollywood or not
wat made the director cast sanjay in tat kind of role???? he doesent even know wat to do with a girl in the arms.. lara looked gorgeous. She was outstanding in the movie…..
zayed was a waste
My humble respect to the director is that pls make movies which have atleast a lil pinch of logic in it
100 crores in deep BLUE water
oe Iqbal who are you srk ko chutti karne wala.. kasta kasta kaha gaye musa bachcha janta……….
Just came back home after watching the muv.
1st some clarifications:
Is it an underwater adventure.- not really. There is about only 20-25 min underwater sequence.
Blue is a never seen before bollywood muv- u can say that but not much. The actions on land are not that new after Dhoom 1 &2, don 2006 etc. the underwater scenes are definitely new.
Its an akshay kumar film Ė not really. Its mainly sanjay dutt film.
Now the +ve things abt the muv: –
If u like action without caring much about the story then blue is perfect for u.
Very stylish film, cool bikes, actions and skin shows.
Songs, music an d background score are gud.
Its less than 2 hrs so u will not feel bore.
International quality film.
Good VFX and DI.
A very good attempt.
Now the -ve things abt the muv: –
Very poor story. No substance. No logic.in one scene lara asks help in hindi from coast guards of Bahamas. : D
All the twists are predictable.
I couldnít emotionally connect with the characters.
You donít feel much adrenalin rush during the action scenes as in Dhoom 1 &2, don 2006 etc.
So if u expected a lot from the muv (like me) u will be disappointed.
My ratings 2.5/5
but the audience response seems to be excellent
@ souren paramanik : under water movie doesn’t mean that the entire movie will be shot underwater , u need to apply common sense as well . and what i have noticed is that mpost of the senior critics have given 4 rating to the movie out of 5 , be it taran adarsh,joginder tuteja, glam sham and few others however the critics who are not that well known has given the movie a low rating
“Blue” is for lonely kids 12 and under who have no friends to play with.
this film will be a big flop
