Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami - Movie Reviews

It's not just a film but a philosophy.
Times of India
The film is positioned as a satire about politics and corruption, and Rahil Qazi’s script makes veiled references to well-known leaders
Rajeev Masand
I'm going with two out of five for Ekkees Toppon Ki Salaami. Promising but doesn't quite take flight.
As you may know, the film's title refers to the 21-gun salute reserved for important occasions and for military and state funerals
Sify
A promising storyline that ends up as Facepalm

Anupam Kher, who plays dead in this week’s release, also played dead in that appalling comedy Rahul Rawail’s Buddha Mar Gaya.
