Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive - Top Reviews

A Sequel To be Discarded in Dustbin
Khalid Mohamed, Spotboye
The script and dialogues more often than not keep you chuckling
Mainsh Paul, Pradhuman Singh film generates start-up potential, some smiles
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
What this oversimplistic film lacks, is sharp writing.
Mohar Basu, Times of India
Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive is best avoided unless a bunch of characters running around in circles is one's idea of entertainment.
So on an overall basis, ‘Tere Bin Laden – Dead or Alive’ has its few enjoyable moments, especially in the second half of the film, but, is laden with its past glory as it fails to match up to the fun element of ‘Tere Bin Laden’.
Divya Solgama, Cine Market
But it's nowhere as fun as the 2010 comedy
Sukanya Verma, Rediff
Director Abhishek Sharma’s second innings isn’t as much fun as his first
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
Laden with the burden of being funny, this one s(t)inks

This is a complete no-brainer and meant for those who enjoy any kind of comedy.

Manish Paul's film is desperately low on laughs
India Today
Even the dialogues don’t help much. A girl interrupts a man saying, ‘Sorry to cut you(r) off.’ Why insert these lines when they don’t mean anything?

TERE BIN LADEN DEAD OR ALIVE doesn't live up to the first part. It offers you patchy entertainment...

Massive Letdown

ऑप्शन नहीं तो देखें ‘तेरे बिन लादेन-डेड ऑर अलाइव'
As we sign off with this write-up, let's warn the makers to keep up their guards. Osama's spirit will come to haunt you for this. We wish it were ROFL but it was plain STFU, if you know what we mean.
Pink Villa
The end result is a riot all right, but it is singularly without the laughs.

Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive could best be given a chance if you have a low threshold for comedy.
Yatharth Chauhan, Desi Martini
The film has incredible comic timing and has the audiences in splits
Source, Business of Cinema
Watch Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive for some really brilliant nonsense, great comic timing, funny dialogue and Sikander Kher.
Suparna Sharma, Deccan Chronicle
Paul is hyperactive and Singh seems to have run out of steam halfway through the film
Manish Paul’s crazy COMIC TIMING is definitely worth your ticket price!
Tushar P Joshi, Bollywood Life
Not every crazy adventure can turn out to be a great comedy on screen. This film was supposed to be a comedy of errors, but it has actually ended up with lots of errors and no real comedy
The film sets the premise and labours in detailing every sequence, but somehow it doesn't add up. But if you've had a long, tiring week, this one wouldn't hurt.
Mumbai Mirror
Directed by Abhishek Sharma, the film is a light-hearted take on war, terrorism and the world of Bollywood
We wish that the sequel had been at least equally funny, if not funnier

Tara Agrawal, Business of Cinema
If only the producers had listened.
If you have seen the trailer of the Manish Paul starrer, you have pretty much seen the entire film!
Prathamesh Jadhav, India.Com
Perhaps the wrong choice of actors in the star cast for Tere Bin Laden – Dead or Alive has come in its way, which was not the case with the prequel. Thus the rating of the film would go down for sure.
Just Bollywood
Despite great performances, this film fails to live up to the standards of the prequel
Tushar P Joshi, DNA India
A little more attention to editing and tauter screenplay would have made it a better film for sure'€¦
Devesh Sharma, Filmfare
Sikandar Kher stands out in this otherwise mediocre watch

Udita Jhunjhunwala, Live Mint
Tere Bin Laden Dead or Alive’ is about as alive as the Al Qaeda chief
Nandini Ramnath, Scroll.In
Not as witty as original
Hindustan Times
On the whole, Tere Bin Laden 2 surely does not reach the level of what the prequel delivered, but can be given a shot for some hilarious performances.
