Roy - Movie Reviews

We know there's something suspenseful about the characters right away
Sify
A film lavished with dollops of visual style and aural sophistication, Roy would have been a runaway cinematic delight if only its makers had coupled its impressive surface gloss with a modicum of substance.
Yes, there is romance but this is an insipid and predictable love story. The emotions, the separation and the redemption remain superfluous entities,

Roy is so tangled in its inflated, erratic ideas of a pseudo mystery that it ceases to make sense even before it takes off
REDIFF
In short, if you are looking out for some good amount of joy in the movie 'Roy', then let me sum it up by saying there is very less of joy and has more of cloy in the movie 'Roy'.

The unintentionally funny dialogues aside, it’s unlikely that you’ll be smiling very much through this misery

Roy is a film wherein you find thrill, mystery, romance, action and love culminating together to give a typical Bollywood movie mix hard to find.

We give the film Slaps for being too lengthy and boring. However, it is a treat for all Ranbir Kapoor fans!

If you’re in the mood to watch a ‘film within a film’ and a character crossing over from reel to reality, a better recommendation would be The Untitled Kartik Krishnan Project.

The enchanting drama which unfolds a romantic tale also stars Arjun Rampal, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ranbir Kapoor in pivotal roles.

Ranbir Kapoor might not have involved himself very heavily in the promotions of his upcoming film Roy, but his co-stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Arjun Rampal have left no stone unturned to promote the movie, which is directed by  Vikramjit Singh

Although the story appeared to decelerate midway, Vikramjit Singh pulls it towards a brilliant climax by gradually introducing elements like romance, conspiracy and remorse.Largely, the makers of ‘Roy’ seem to have put all their focus on style, class and suspense -- the film may not cater to the tastes of regular masala lovers

Singh tries hard to present an intelligent film by going beyond the mere aesthetics
What definitely doesn't work for 'Roy' is its self indulgence

Vikramjit Singh’s latest directorial venture, Roy starring Arjun Rampal, Jacqueline Fernandez, Ranbir Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Asif Basra has finally hit the theatres. I just caught the first show of the movie and I’m left with mixed feelings about the film.

Roy is boring, exhausting and pretentious – save your money and time by staying away.

At one point in the film, Arjun’s character wonders, ‘yeh film kaise ban gayi?’. Our sentiments exactly!

But still it needs an exceptional jumps and word of mouth over weekend in order to come out as hit as content is bad.Go for this one if you are Ranbir Kapoor fan!

More music video than romantic drama
Roy is dull, sluggish and a difficult watch.It doesn't bode well that the film centres on a flat filmmaker Kabir (Arjun Rampal

"Kam Zyada, sahi galat, in sab cheezon ka main hisaab nahi rakhta." Two different characters say this in completely different situations in Roy.

Roy is a superb thriller dished out to the audience by debutant director Vikramjit Singh and he has made sure that he does not bore us with any clichéd whodunit nuances, for which he deserves lots of kudos

On the whole, ROY is a film to be watched if you are a fan of thriller movies with some soul-stirring music.

Perhaps the first-time director should have attempted the complexities of this film after making five other films. But the fact that he did attempt this film as his directorial debut is admirable. (IANS)

Could make up for a Valentines watch minus all the ‘mujhe tumse pyaar hogaya hai’ type drama.

His working style is very unique
India Today
As we said the film revolves around one man Kabir played Arjun Rampal, he did justice to his role. He fits the role perfectly and his transformation appears realistic. Ranbir Kapoor provides the charm needed for the film. His expressive eyes speak all and scenes involving with Arjun Rampal in the climax are good. Jacqueline Fernandez has nothing to do with the film except for the liplocks with Arjun and Ranbir. Actors like Anupam, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rajit Kapur are wasted.
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
The film’s boring plot and predictable ending is what make it unworthy of any one’s time and money.
