Beyond the reach of mental maths.
Mohar Basu, Koi Moi
The street-smart stubbly villain, the beautiful yet inconsequential heroine, the don-type antagonist, story set in Cape Town, backdrop of cricket, and some sly con games
Sonia Chopra, Sify
While Kunal Deshmukh's effort had huge potential, one sadly walks out of the theatre unimpressed by Raja Natwarlal’s antics and this film
Watch ‘Raja Natwarlal’ because it is not a bad film, it just reeks of confused storytelling
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
Anything but watch the new Emraan Hashmi starrer Raja Natwarlal

Still, Raja Natwarlal isn’t one of those actively awful films. But neither does it sparkle.
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
This one is a con story alright, but the con is on the viewer!

Raja Natwarlal movie review: It is a limp con job
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Neither as entertaining as your average Emraan Hashmi thriller, nor clever enough to engage anyone seeking a deliciously complex caper, Raja Natwarlal is the kind of film that leaves you bored out of your mind. I'm going with a generous two out of five. I
This King-Con Has Some Tricks Under His Sleeves…
Divya Solgama, Movie Zadda
Kunal Deshmukh’s tribute to the legendary conman Natwarlal is muddled with Bollywood staples of song and dance, and a pretty heroine, reducing it into an unlikely romance
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
Raja Natwarlal has some smarts but tragically lacks the skill or the sleight-of-hand

Plot: फिल्म निर्देशक कुणाल देशमुख ने फिल्म बनाने के कहानी तो बेहद रोमांचक चुनी, लेकिन जब पटकथा ही बेकार हो तो भला कैमरा कहां तक पब्लिक को बांधे रखे। फिल्म राजा नटवरलाल की कहानी भारत के मशूहर ठग नटवरलाल से प्रेरित जरूर है, लेकिन इसमें उतना दम नहीं, जितना.
Watch Raja Natwarlal for the performances

An attempt to create a 'naya India ka naya Natwarlal' had to be smarter, else it is just demeaning the original icon! Average.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running
Boasting the dependable Emraan Hashmi UTV Motion Pictures’Raja Natwarlal’ is able to ‘con’ Hashmi’s die hards but for rest it’s a diminishing unexciting con drama that wastes the given opportunity.

Emraan Hashmi has to be one of the most popular mass actors in India but he still lacks that mega hit film in his filmography
Kunal Deshmukh, going by his filmography, loves two things – Emraan Hashmi and cricket
Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters India
In fact, this story about a con artist trying to avenge the death of his friend is nothing but plain boring and exhausting to sit through.
