In our country we have few different genres of comedy films. Earlier there used to be comical films by Mehmood, Kishore Kumar, Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Basu Chatterjee, etc. Then it moved its base to the mass level with help of films makers like David Dhawan

A detective who’s entrusted the task of finding an eloped heiress gets drawn into a complex situation involving an international killer.
Meena Iyer, Times of India
Overall, Mr. Joe B Carvalho is a total disaster of a movie. Except for Arshad Warsi’s histrionics, this film has nothing much to offer. Stay away from this one.
Mahesh S Koneru, Bollywood 3
We hope that the future films make a more compelling case with their detective heroes and heroine.
Suhani Singh, India Today
Mr Joe B Carvalho may not be the ha ha fest with you may want to start you new year with but if you are not wanting to be too picky it does offer you some by-and-large clean, humour which spoofs about everything it can.
Faheem Ruhani, India Today
The film deserves the one star it got for the bravery the makers of this film showed while making it.
Saurabh Dwivedi, India Today
Good story, nice team but weak execution

Movie Review : 'जॉय बी कारवाल्हो' 'जॉय बी कारवाल्हो' एक कॉमेडी फिल्म है, लेकिन कॉमेडी के नाम पर इस फिल्म में कुछ भी नहीं है। कॉमेडी के मामले में यह फिल्म असफल दिखती है। माना कि अरशद अच्छी कॉमेडी करते हैं, मगर इस फिल्म में...

Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror
‘Mr Joe B Carvalho’ is a comedy of terror’s which has been directed by debutante Samir Tewari. The film is not at all funny and has mindless gags that ultimately cross the limit. The entire cast ove
Bollywood Mixer
Despite having actors like Arshad Warsi Jaaved Jaffrey and Soha Ali Khan Mr Joe B Carvalho fails miserably and is devoid of any reason for one to watch this film. Best avoided.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
Overall, the movie is watchable perhaps by the fans of actors if they overlook the content
K N Gupta, Smash Hits
The title had nothing to do with the movie or the story it was the name of the central character of the movie, Arshad Warsi, who raises no laughs whatsoever.
Abhishek Bhardwaj, Rate Movies Here
Despite good performances by Arshad Warsi and Vijay Raaz, this comedy of errors is not entertaining. Weak script, bad acting by rest of the cast and unfunny jokes prove to be the film’s undoing.
Even if you are in a charitable mood Mr. Joe B Carvalho doesnt go beyond a couple of chuckles. Mostly a waste of time and comic talents like Arshad and Javed. Sambhaloo.. watch at your own risk.
