Three men from three eras and different parts of the world share nothing common but a name – David. They fight their inner demons which twist their beliefs and turn their destinies.

David Review by Indicine critic Joginder Tuteja.
Movies is that they’re all named David. And what they really have going for them is that writer-director Bejoy Nambiar is the one telling their stories. He sets them up beautifully, and visually the movie is stunning.

Well knit tale but improper handling and weak pace

David becomes the lover, turns into a guitarist, springs as a friend, jumps into a sea of anger, rolls in laughter and all said hold the phone!, the climax is the surprise element in the movie.

'Shaitan' famed Bejoy Nabira's next 'David' may not be an entertainer at its best but it's certainly an interesting, new and different cinema for the rest by the generation next.. the only problem is Bejoy's 'David' creates its own goliaths by the time it progresses in all style and flair shifting times like we are watching television on an arm chair and forgets to explain the logic, point behind this mash of bullets tears and beers in different years...

Bejoy Nambiar's David has a fair share of pros and cons but it definitely makes for a one time watch. If not for the flawed story go for it at least for its innovative execution experimental narration and stunningly stylish cinematography.

Ironically for a film with three stories to tell, it is weak on content.
Vinayak Chakravorty, India Today
The story focuses on two persons with same name—David. One being Jiva and the other one being Vikram. As the plot unveils one sees a happy go lucky type teenager David (in the year 1999) (Jiva), a musician who lives with his parents in Mumbai. The second David (Vikram) is a fisherman who falls in love with a deaf and dumb girl Roma (Isha Sharwani) who will soon be getting married to his close friend. What steps these two persons will take and how it would change their lives forms the remaining part of the story..

On a whole, David falls in the category of new age cinema, which totally depends on the characters rather than the stars. Stunning performances by Neil Nitin Mukesh and some well designed thrills are sure shot plus points. On the flip side slow pace of th
