KNOCK OUT is a watchable fare but its English title and also Sanjay Dutt's box-office pull which is minimal currently will act as deterrents.

Irrfan Khan an investment banker makes his living by stashing away the ill-gotten millions of India's corrupt politicians and bureaucrats into the infamous Swiss banks.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
In Knock Out, writer-director Mani Shankar takes the 2003 thriller Phone Booth and marries it with a plot about getting back approximately Rs 60 lakh crore that corrupt politicians have siphoned out of India and stored in Swiss banks.

This might be difficult to imagine, but Knock Out - which heavily borrows from Colin Farrell’s Phone Booth - slowly morphs into a patriotic drama much like our Naseeruddin Shah-starrer A Wednesday.

Several factors compel you to ponder over your decision whether or not to watch Knock Out.

Pankaj Sabnani, Glam Sham
The title of the film is a complete misnomer as it doesn't give out any idea whatsoever around the theme of 'Knock Out' which is that of black money being accumulated by politicians across the country. Director Mani Shankar keeps it all simple though without getting into the finest details around the entire network. One can't blame it for that because he did try to do that in his last release 'Mukhbiir' which was a dismal failure.

Yes, you are knocked out with Knock Out; knocked out of your sense and logic. It screams useless and basically, KO can go down as one of 2010′s dumbest films.

A lone ranger (Sanjay Dutt) holds an investment banker at a phone booth from 11 am to 1 pm and triggers an act that will change India’s history and expose corruption like never before. Mani Shankar has written a watertight screenplay to a complex, well-la
Ankit Ojha, Planet Bollywood
By no means is Knock Out original, except perhaps for the message it conveys. Mani Shankar does a mix of Phone Booth, A Wednesday and the formula behind his previous films to create this one.

Knock Out might turn to be an interesting fare for one who has not seen Phone Booth.

As a whole, the movie is worth watching because it deals with the nation’s most vital evil

After debuting with a good film like 16 December, director Mani Shankar could not create the same impact with the films that followed -- Rudraksh, Tango Charlie and Mukhbir.
