Low-Key Drama Benefits From Emraan Hashmi's Restrained Performance
A jumbo mess of warped notions and random ambition, Why Cheat India trivialises education and shows sympathy for deceit
Sukanya Verma, Rediff
There are parents who want their kids to have an engineering degree come what may. There are agents who help 'crack' the exams for a fee. The film tackles the problem of rampant cheating in these exams but it gets so preachy about a failing system and talks so much, you cannot help but yawn..
Manisha Lakhne, Now Running
An entertaining but flawed look at the mafia that promotes cheating during college exams.
Rachit Gupta, Times of India
