If that isn't enough of an incentive, watch it for Randeep Hooda's alluring French drawl and Adil Hussain's sturdy presence.
Main Aur Charles’ is dark and delicious. Prawaal Raman crafts a compelling story around a most mesmeric personality.
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo!
Of crimes and misdemeanors!
Sonia Chopra, Sify
Director Prawaal Raman sweeps us into Sobhraj’s exploits .Once in, there’s no way out.
On an overall basis, ‘Main Aur Charles’ is like a prime time news hour debate which has an interesting topic to start with but ends up with the same routine stuff without giving a proper solution to the main problem.

Stylish biopic with stellar performances
Rachit Gupta, Film Fare
A film that tells its tale with calculated intent -- coolly, cleverly, taking its time -- mirroring the dry panache of its self-assured protagonist
Raja Sen, Rediff
The movie is all style and very little soul. And that’s a disappointment as it attempted to tell a really fascinating story of a mastermind. But do watch it, if only for Hooda

Main Aur Charles Proves That Bollywood Should Make More Biopics
Shreemi Verma, Miss Malini
Randeep is convincing; the uncanny physical resemblance and accent help bring Charles alive. Most of the supporting cast is good, but Adil Hussain is a notch above.
Meena Iyer, Times of India
The production values are fine and spent what is exactly needed for the 80s concept like Main Aur Charles. Finally, script and narration is what dips down the movie.
Aravind, Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Shoddy direction fails Randeep Hooda, Richa Chadha's performances
Tushar Joshi, DNA India
The problem with Main Aur Charles is that it strives hard to be high on style but low on content.
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
The problem with biopics is that they can’t be somewhere in between

MAIN AUR CHARLES is a big yawn!
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
Randeep Hooda as Sobraj is thrilling and seductive, just like the film
Gayatri Gauri, First Post
Film’s complicated approach means viewers are left exhausted after playing catch-up with the storyline
But investing time to watch this one will only mean making a 'oyal' buffoon of yourself"
Kunal Guha, Bangalore Mirror
कन्फ्यूज करती हैं 'मैं और चार्ल्स', एक्टिंग है फिल्म की जान

Above all, Randeep’s portrayal of Charles is praiseworthy.

Catch Main Aur Charles for a well-executed peek into the life and times of one of the world’s most notorious criminals.
Karan Raikar, BookMyShow
Watch it for Randeep Honda and a sleek thriller, not to understand Charles Sobhraj.
Shishir Gautam, Nowrunning
This Randeep Hooda starrer is worth a watch!
India.Com
A film that’s very much in love with its serial killer protagonist
Uday Bhatia, Live Mint
The prime problem is that the film is too much soul and very less substance. It was promising but half-baked, with the thrills falling short in supply.
Pink Villa
In Prawaal Raman’s fictional retelling of Charles Sobhraj’s jailbreak in the mid-1980s, style trumps substance.
Nandini Ramnath, Scroll.In
Adil Hussain is a very fine artist. He plays the voice of sanity amidst Sobhraj’s fandom and adds a very generous amount of gravitas and depth to Amod Kanth.
Suparna Sharma, Asian Age
Even the keen, wait for DVD
Wogma
Although the movie does get a little confusing, Main Aur Charles is a good one time watch especially if you have an interest to know about this "Bikini Killer"
Priyanka Prasad, Filmi Beat
He has shot the jail escape scenes, and the ones that involve Goa, to perfection.Overall, in spite of its puzzling plot, Main Aur Charles turns out to be a decent one time watch
Sulekha
This could have been an attempt to get under the skin of a famous psychopathic criminal, but it falls flat because the film-makers choose style over substance.
Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters India
Overall, "Main Aur Charles" is a well-made intriguing film with realistic performances.
