Aurangzeb - Movie Reviews

The movie moves at such a meandering and self-indulgent pace that after a point you stop caring if it moves forward or sideways
Atul Sabharwal weaves an intriguing tale in ‘Aurangzeb’; the collusion of the powerful and the corrupt. The nexus of ministers, real estate developers and the police is almost impenetrable and there is no place for those who don’t fall in line.

It's a tough job for any director to make a thriller. There are lots of sub genres in the thriller category and out of which making a dark political or gangster based thriller is rather difficult. Such films need perfect script with lots of twist and turn

From Dad Ki Maruti to papa ki gaddhi (read throne) YRF ode to fatherhood continues this time with their current favourite Arjun Kapoor with 'Aurangzeb' a baffled action drama helmed by first timer Atul Sabharwal who is guilty of making the film struggle to find its true successor as he shifts the genre from crime thriller to mobster drama without checking on the emotional connect which is most of the time low even after having a snaky script.

Aurangzeb has an epic sweep to its storytelling. But it's also an intimate portrait of family values gone to waste. It is really the sound of stifled sobs that we carry home of characters who thought they knew it all only to realize at the end that they s

Aurangzeb is a cliched formulaic drama straight out of the '70s era that fails to impress the audience.

Could have been better in terms of execution, disappointing!

The movie, predictably, is therefore the story of relationships versus desires, and how far a man can go to hold on to his dream.

It is important to pay attention early on in Aurangzeb as it kicks off with Rishi Kapoor's voiceover
Mumbai Mirror
At its best, Aurangzeb qualifies as a genuine `trying hard to be a movie` and if seen with an encouraging attitude, it’s a kind of film which can pave a way in the future for better crime films to come
