What’s Your Rashee Movie Review

The Oscar nominated director of Lagaan returns after working with 3 of the biggest stars in the country Aamir Khan (Lagaan), Shahrukh Khan (Swades) and Hrithik Roshan (Jodhaa Akbar).. comparatively What’s your Rashee is a much smaller movie starring Priyanka Chopra in 12 different roles and Harman Baweja as the most eligible bachelor. Yet the expectations are sky high and understandably so.

But what unfolds in this terribly long movie on Sun Signs, is Gowariker’s worst work in a long long time. A movie that not just falls way below expectations, but surprises you with its mediocrity. Is this really, for real, an Ashutosh Gowariker directed movie?

Read on as we dissect the positives and negatives of What’s your Rashee. 

Whats your Rashee Review

Some reasons why you could watch What’s your Rashee on DVD (visit to a theater not recommended)

  • Priyanka Chorpa – Does justice to each of the 12 characters she portrays and ensures almost each of them feel distinctly different.
  • Some dialogues and comic scenes work, but are way too few and far in between.

Why you would absolutely regret the Rashee experience if you indeed decide to watch it

  • The movie is way too long and what makes things worse are those 13 songs, 12 for each Rashee and the title song in the end. Why include a song, just for the heck of it? None, absolutely none of the songs were necessary. Dont get me wrong, length is never a problem as long as the content is strong, unfortunately the screenplay and its execution (read direction) ensure the 3 hour 30 minute movie remains terribly weak on content throughout.
  • With due credit to Priyanka’s performance, she is let down by some of the most irritating and weird characters you will ever get to watch on screen. They dance without a reason, their dialogues are outright pathetic and while most seem different from each other, the effort to make them so different seems to have back-fired big time.
  • Harman Baweja is completely overshadowed by Priyanka here. His performance and dialogue delivery has improved considerably since his Love Story 2050 days and Gowariker has ensured there is no trace of Hrithik left in his performance, yet there is something missing. Could be the energy, intensity or the lack screen presence? He seems to have the necessary talent and looks but if Gowariker could’nt extract the best out of him we wonder who could..
  • After the drag that the movie is, you look forward to the last possible saving grace – the climax. But what unfolds in the last 20 odd minutes has to be one of the most stupid and unconvincing climaxes ever.
  • Darshan Jariwala’s extra marital storyline that adds to the runtime gets increasingly annoying. It was meant to be funny, but isn’t.

Overall, from a director with epics like Lagaan and Swades behind him, its a shocker. Hard to put it in words, but being one of the biggest fans of Gowariker since his acting and CID days, it hurts to say this – What’s your Rashee is one of the worst films this decade. A powerful sleeping pill, that isn’t recommended even for chronic sleeplessness.

Half a star for Priyanka.

Rating: ½☆☆☆☆

Other notes –  The review was actually supposed to cover each of the 13 different stories (12 of each Rashee and the main storyline), but why make it terribly long and boring for readers when not more than one or two deserved a mention?

We loved Priyanka’s look in certain characters, she looked stunning as Sanjana (Aquarius), Kajal (Gemini), Bhavna (Sagittarius) and Pooja (Virgo).

Coming to the box office, the advance booking has been poor, morning and afternoon shows were literally empty on Friday.. Don’t expect much at the box office, as the word of mouth is terribly negative.

  • its really strange that ppl juz kno how to discourage new comers…i think harman did a very good job and has improved a lot….as far as the songs are concerned it was good to have a song for every rashe …as every one can now sing a sing for theri own rashees……….Harman and Priyanka have a gr8 on screen chemistry..it was totally gr8 to see em together again……as far as the story is concerned it could have better but it isnt as bad as ppl say it…its a good one tym watch…..i luv harman’s acting in the particular scene where he is meeting the punar janam character and the dialogue that mere liye jahez tho tho hai..its wonderfully said and he acts well cumin out of hrithik’s shadow after all……and wen half of the world wants to be like hrithik wat d hell is wrong if harman is inspired from him too……I think the review is way too harsh and ppl should go wid an undecided mind to c dis movie if not anything else it is a good one time watch !!!!!Way to go harman u can still do a lot better all the best!!!

  • I think What’s your Rashee is a nice film. Such a confusing fascinating and wonderful that brings anyone in good mood but I can’t know the fact that the hero couldnot knew the same girl in different look and those looks also doesnot vary so much. This leads to be this film as imagination. But again I liked this film. The art of Priyanka to do sucha wonderful play for each and every character.

  • The film is nice. Priyanka is wonderful that she played all the roles so effectively and wonderful in each of her role. But the thing I couldnot understand is that how can anyone be unknown with the person just with a different look or dressup.

  • This movie is wonderful. Here Priyanka can be noticed in 12 wonderful different roles which is very effective as shown. But this is a tough work. I am very impressed by it. But the main theme is out of known. How can a person could be unknown with a same girl meeting 12 times here in 12 different looks or dressup?

  • This film is wonderful. The role of actress is quite tough enough but very effective tooooo b shown. C should b praised for that nd her acts made impression on me of her.

  • boring….borin…utter boring film…u watch this and go directly 2 the bathrooom ..just see ur face…u’ll then understand how much ur face is rinkled due the the stress u took in the theatre 2 watch this film….

  • i loved the character of ms. priyanka.she is very tealenty play the roal of 13 charater.i love the song also

  • hey guys,
    for all you haters—Whats Your Rashee is a very well created movie. We have no right to criticize someones acting like that…the movie is long but thouroughly entertainig, thats one problem, u guys only want masala and action…u shud see priyanka chopras acting is is MIND BLOWING only she can pull of 12 charactes in such a pleasing manner!! Its not lengh that matters for anything its what the movie was portraying and how well the actors portray it! i think the movie is good, well thought out, ahmazing acting by priyanka, anddddd ashutosh did a good job of directing it because its not just LENGTH, he DIDNT write the script but the way he gpot out the 12 characters is just fantastic!

    you should look at it from a perspective of harman not as u, wtf, u look at the everyday! what emotions were created byt the movie is gret and the feelings that came out…

    LOVED THIS MOVIE and haters are only haters so dont talk unless u can make a movie BETTER u jerks.. u shud c how hard each crew and cast especially priyanka worked! its not just for your entertainment, its about feelings and thats what cinema is about………………………


    and btw WE matter to the movie and i think we are entering almost a new decade so we mmight wanna change ourselves and look at more REALISTIC movies and not be entertained by silly dhishoom dhishoom shit! look at what the movie says makes u feell..and its def. not boring, u r probably not a fan of priyanka or harman, but priyanka DID AN AWESOME job..the only thing that may bring this movie down is priyanka not being able to do good with every role.. 10/12 roles were done very well… especially the 15 yr old village girl


  • Fuck all the critics who say that the movie is poor…
    I liked the movie a lot..Yaa its lengthy bt u never ever feel bored…
    Harman was good..He didn’t overacted in this movie..was simple yet smart throughout the movie
    and Priyanlka was brilliant…
    Atleast its way better than Rabne om shanti.. and other bollywood “GREAT movies”
    WHAT’s YOUR RASHEE is brilliant..A must watch movie

  • Was ashu’s intention only to get publicity by registering priyanka in the guiness book for her 12 roles…or to kill viewers’ time…still thinking!!!!!!!!!!

  • Its not that bad as people said here…You can watch it for one time…….Priyanka action was good and harman also did his part well. Guys….

  • But what was the ending of the film…i’m really anxious to know it…can any one say me which rashee did he get married to and why????

  • Movie is too boring, repeatation of ‘dekhana’ program and childish failure comedy. Full wastage of time. Priyanka is good, Herman is OK. Box office super flop indicates everything. Can go to watch your buddy actor/actress, otherwise waste if going for entertainment.

  • I always loved Bollywood, my life is so busy i hardly have time to watch movies. My partner brought movies home but I always fall asleep. I told him lets go watch “What’s your Rashee” in the cinema, that way I will not sit with my laptop and watch or fall asleep. I made it a night out with my three kids as I like Priyanka and on top of it my partner asked me: “Did you like Lagaan”, I’m like “you know I loved it” and then he goes: “Did you like Joda Akbar”, I’m like, “you’re kidding me… I loved it”. He goes “then you will love What’s your Rashee because it’s all made by Ashutosh”. I’m like, darling, you’ve made my night.

    Trust me, I was so excited to be in the movies that night I sat through the whole fuckin movie. I was still hopeful that there would be a twist in the end as already I’m slightly pissed because the songs was utter rubbish. So I sit till the end. I walked out of that movie infuriated with anger. I wasted almost 4 hourse of my fuckin precious time.

    I swear I don’t want to see Priyanka or that stupid co-actor nice looking face boy in a while and Ashutosh, just because you made Laggan and Joda Akbar, i will pray that you get some inspiration and make your next movie a hit. Please Ashutosh, please don’t disappoint me again next time.

    I know shit happens, but this was too much shit.

  • I have seen this smovie twice and did enjoy every part of it…though i agree the movie is too long and slow too….as it has 12 very good songs which makes the movie a big long..anyways i would say movie is good and can be watched once …

  • i absolutely LOVED What’s Your Rashee?.. i loved priyanka’s work but i loved harman’s more..

    comon people! hum apkay hain kaun was a big dubba movie.. it was as far as i could remember THE MOST LONGEST MOVIE in the history.. it had soooooooo many songs and the execution was very poor.. and even THAT was a hit! i couldn’t believe that.. there are soo many big time flops that were – GOD knows how and WHY – declared HITS! i just feel like there’s a big lobby makin against harman.. cuz he is more good lookin than hrithik.. and besdies.. harma resembles hrithik’s dad not him..

    there were so many feelings in it.. full of feelings i say.. and priyanka and harman make a great couple too..


  • i never go to movie with my parents.I dont know wat happen dat day, i ws eager to watch chopra in d film.Then i realised was it me who left my priya whom i promised for a date for the sake of chopra in the film……titles backtrack were awesome then slowly it made my cry…shout…like anything.dont evn try to bunk clg for this kind of muv.

  • Most junk movie from Ashutosh, boring and without any story. I can’t believe he could make such pathetic movie, he must be drugged or something..

  • the songs in it were awesome.but the story was not so good.harman and priyanka acted very well.it is not so boring.ashutosh sir,you r the best


  • I like this movie. Better than some other bollywood crap. A bit dragging at places but then its fine. I loved all the characters in the film. The ending (15 mins) was wierd but not bad. Its a ‘hatke’ bollywood film. Its clean, its for family.

  • And yes, I in my family arrange marraiges only take place. So, I can identify a hell lot with that movie. Plus how well it shows a family bonding between Chachas and chachis and brothers and Bhabhis. There was so much in this film where I could relate to and surely many Indians WILL relate to. Especially Marwaris and Gujaratis..

  • It’s a nice movie. I watched it many times. Length doesn’t matter as long as you don’t get bored with any film. Priyanka’s action was superb. You believe it or not, I didn’t know that it was Priyanka in all the 12 Rashees. One of my friend told me later. It was aired on television, so I couldn’t know that all the roles were played by Priyanka.
