Maybe you thought star power would make this film work but even Sonakshi Sinha's good luck charm seems to have failed this time.
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
The Joker actors look like they’ve walked into a crude indigenized version of a vaudeville performance in the middle of nowhere without quite knowing what they have let themselves into. Akshay Kumar is as good as he can be – and that isn’t all that good.

A joke with all the right punches

Here's a film that had great potential for an equal measure of comedy and drama.

Though the film might not appeal to many, the characters lingers in your heart

Released on 31-8-’12 at Eros (daily 4 shows), Maratha Mandir (daily 2 shows) and other cinemas of Bombay by UTV Motion Pictures. Publicity: fair, quantitatively speaking, but very poor, qualitatively speaking. Opening: weak. …….Also released all over. Ope
Komals Reviews
The promos were dull, Akshay Kumar disowned the film and there was no hype prior to it’s release. But, amidst all the negativity surrounding Joker, I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised. Director Shirish Kunder’s last film Jaan-e-mann didn’t work at the
Movie set in India isn’t half-bad. An alien spoof movie set in India: sure, that’s even better. A movie about a village of madmen that doesn’t exist on the map: that’s a perfectly good idea, too (especially if we don’t think too hard about the fact that t

Joker is a film which cautiously fits all ages of this generation

It is Guru Somasundaram's fantastic performance that is actually the film's driving force
M Suganth, The Times of India
Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’ can be watched on TV sets with small picture tubes but not by those with a narrow imagination.
Kunal Guha, Yahoo India
Already, the music has become a hit in Kerala.
Joker is an exceptional film that speaks about the realistic issues in our everyday society

Agastya invents aliens to help his mad village onto a welfare map. Will the world get his joke?
Srijana Mitra Das, Times of India
 Ridiculous joke of alien movies, forget it!!
Bharat Student
Okay, okay I know the big question is: Is Joker that bad? Does it go a step ahead (or behind) of Tees Maar Khan as a debacle? Well, the answer is: NO! It is actually an okay film
Janhavi Samant, Mid-Day
Joker is a emotional roller coaster ride
John Andrews, Cine Ulagam
'Joker', is easily Sean Roldan's best album in his career so far
Siddarth Srinivas, Only Kollywood
'Joker' is a film that has been designed for the kids which means one can't be expected to sit down and hunt for much logic in the proceedings.
India Glitz
A courage shines throughout the film in the plot, dialogues and the performances giving a wonderful output on screen

Or, as in the case of Joker, it can be a royal bore.
Vinayak Chakravorty, India Today
A bold and hard hitting political satire

Joker has plenty of side-content and backstory to keep you constantly engaged
Anupama Subramaniam, Deccan Chronicle
I won’t drag my review long. With a baseline that sounded interesting enough, I was hoping for a more entertaining and enjoyable fare. Although really not that bad as some are making it out to be, there is no doubt that this Joker could have been funnier.
Prateeksha Khot, Bolly Spice
The film completely disappoints vis-à-vis high hopes raised by director Shirish Kunder

After the disaster of 'Tees Maar Khan', people were not having much expectation from Shirish Kunder and his forthcoming project 'Joker'. However because the lead protagonists and interesting basic plot, it did gave a good dosage of expectations among movi

Joker is ham fest at best. A plausible half decent plot which too gets wasted by lunatic antics and buffoonery. Sadly this time around the joke is on the Joker itself.
