Laal Rang - Movie Reviews

One didn't have doubts about Hooda's talent earlier, but it is roles like this that fully show what he's capable of. Not many actors can come across as so hot and cool at the same time.
'Laal Rang', is a slow-burning drama about human blood-hounds that takes a while to come into its own, but when it does it has enough meat to last the course
So on an overall basis, ‘Laal Rang’ has a great theme attached to it which should have been told in an interesting manner with the help of good actors and an experienced director. A good theme gets diluted and the movie leaves you cold grey with boredom.

Watch this and you won't be very impressed but you won't be disappointed either.
Filmfare
Spare some, and you might just find Laal Rang worth your while.
Laal Rang is half-baked and unconvincing. Despite the grit, it never becomes a riveting film. Here's a lesson to learn: Ideas don't make good films, execution does.

However, you need to be patient with this film as it tends to inject unwanted romantic twists and drama into a film that could have been gripping even without those crutches.
Randeep Hooda and Akshay Oberoi give bloody good performances in this social drama!

'Laal Rang', is different, though restricted by its genre, and hence the reach.

Randeep Hooda and the topic are hot, the film is not

Of Randeep's flamboyance, Akshay's confidence and tepid narration
Glam Sham
It is bloated, bloody-minded and oddly hypnotic
Catch News
If you'd like a crash course in Haryanvi, this one covers the elementary level in just two hours and 25 minutes. But as a movie, it doesn't justify the cost of a multiplex ticket. Give it a few months, a world TV premiere is on the cards.
Pune Mirror
Laal Rang is not a boring watch but not a theater must-watch either. This is an entertaining film with a dose of seriousity and has Randeep Hooda pulling off a great role
Koi Moi
Overall, “Laal Rang” is worth a watch for a well encapsulated story.

Since it is a well-organised business, there are many others involved in the racket.
KomalsReviews
If only the exaggerations could be reined in, this would be a wonderfully dark comic film.

Hindustan Times
A jumbled up messy film, Laal Rang could have done with a little more focus. It lacks spit-and-polish and style. There are no frills and flourishes, no slickness to the filmmaking. That, ironically, is its strength, the reason why it feels so real.
The Hindu
Laal Rang is a scary, well-researched film loosely inspired by incidents in 2002 involving the illegal trade of blood.

While the genre doesn't warrant a fixed constitution, the film spends too much time in explaining the modus operandi and the cinematic flourishes seem predictable and laboured

The audio of Syed Ahmed Afzal's 'Laal Rang', is as unconventional as his film, and leaves a lasting impact into the minds of the discerning music aficionados
Glam Sham
If it weren’t for Hooda and Oberoi, “Laal Rang” would have been a different film. It is to their credit that they infuse some blood into an otherwise lifeless narrative.
