Joker Movie Review 

Ojha's Opinion:
Joker Review Omar Qureshi
I regret why I went for this one. However had some childish time with JOKER. Not satisfying but will entertain target audience. Did they promote JOKER in Cartoon Network? or Hungama? No.. I guess they seriously needed to go for it. I'll sit back & watch Shin Chan rather.

In Joker, directed by Shirish Kunder, Akshay Kumar is cast as a committed NASA scientist. You can laugh now. Very likely it’s the only time you’ll laugh during this disappointing film. Joker unfolds briskly and predictably. Alas, just as you’re confronted with an unpredictable twist in the tale, the film comes to a screeching halt. This is no enjoyable circus. Far from it.......Read Full Review

Despite everything going in its favor, JOKER falls flat on its face! Akshay is monotonous and repetitive. Sonakshi gets no scope at all. Also, the spark is missing.JOKER runs out of gas as soon as director Shirish Kunder establishes the plot, because neither does the comic quotient work, nor do the aliens. On the whole, JOKER is a joke of a film. Disaster!.......Read Full Review

Joker is disappointment for Akki's fans, specially after Rowdy Rathore. Sonakshi only server as eyes candy in Joker. Plot is stuffed with loop holes & lot of ideas are absurd. Film is short in length but long enough to bore you. In the middle of the movei, you'd probably leave the theatre or will ask "Where the hell is it going?"...I'll give you the answer,"Nowhere".....Watch Full video Review

Joker is so staggeringly stupid and exhausting that it hurts. I can't imagine that it sounded very good on paper but it got made because Akshay Kumar said yes.The tragedy is that it's not even unintentionally funny.The only good thing about this film is it is mercifully short. Honestly with this one, the joke's on us - the viewers.......Read Full Review

Joker tries hard to keep the momentum going but it needs better acting for that. Small length of Joker helps the film but the tempo drops just before the climax. is technically satisfactory but it needed a more meaty story. Overall, JOKER is funny in parts. Better acting could have helped it. A good watch for Akki fans......Read Tweet Review
Times Of India: By Gaurav Malani
Verdict: Avg.
The fundamental flaw of the film is that the moment where you feel there's something actually happening in the story, the film ends. The performances are mostly mediocre. Like a joker, the film makes a complete fool of itself. However it fails to make you laugh. The circus clown is funnier!.....Read Full Review By Raja Sen

Spotlight and skepticism both arrive, and the film goes through predictable paces while not proving either clever or sincere enough to engage. It's gaon-boys versus aliens, and it never once delights. There isn't a single line in Kunder's film that actually works, leaving us with a film that, while commendably brisk in a 100-minute package, refuses to get going at all......Read Full Review

Joker is a crude joke of a film that will leave you in tears unless you have a stomach strong enough to digest such unmitigated junk. Akshay Kumar is as good as he can be – and that isn’t all that good. Sonakshi sleepwalks through the film, grinning and frowning as he drowns in the morass. Give Joker a miss if you value your sanity and money. It gives commercial Hindi cinema a bad name. .......Read Full Review

At 1 hour 50 minutes, Joker is precise. And one must thank Kunder profusely for keeping his mad drama short and tight. Akshay is the only saving grace of the film and Sonakshi complements Akki. Overall, the less we analyse the other facets of Joker, the better!......Read Full Review

The best thing I can say about Joker is that it’s better than Tees Maar Khan. Joker isn’t as awful as you expect it to be, falling a few degrees short of entering the ‘So Bad It’s Good’ category. Joker, sadly, doesn’t make the cut even in those films to be watched on a drunken night with friends. Total fail. .....Read Full Review

Firstly why’s this film called Joker? Well, partly because the joke here is probably on your own intelligence. Apart from that, it refers to the joker in a pack of cards that belongs to no colour or denomination. The aliens you see in this film though are made of vegetables. This is deliberate. They’re not supposed to be aliens at all. The film isn’t quite exactly a science fiction either. What is it exactly then?......Read Full Review

‘Joker’ clearly lacks the ‘wow’ factor which it abundantly promised in the film’s trailer. Entertainment wise, the film really has nothing to offer. I had so much expectation from ‘Joker’; but all that has been washed out as the film has come as a big disappointment. Oh! I almost forgot the mention the best thing about ‘Joker’ – undoubtedly the gorgeous Chitrangada Singh, who rocks in ‘Kaafirana’. Wish there was more her in the film.......Read Full Review

Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’ can be watched on TV sets with small picture tubes but not by those with a narrow imagination. ‘Joker’ uses this great power with great irresponsibility and provides us with actors in pumpkin suits who put up a minimum wage performance. A big crop circle for Joker by me.......Read Full Review

Joker is an one-time watch as it is a mass entertainer and delivers a lovely message. But, note one important thing: Do not fail to carry a disprin tablet, as it might leave you suffering from a severe headache in the second half.........Read Full Review

What’s Good: The direction; the music; the cinematography; some puns.
What’s Bad: The predictable storyline.
Loo Break: None.
Watch or Not?: It’s a timepass watch but not really engrossing.........Read Full Review

Joker opens to poor houses almost everywhere. Film seems to be doomed. ......via twitter
Glamsham: By Martin D'Souza
Rating: 2/5 
The problem with JOKER is that it fails to take off from Stage I. The plot moves about in circles going nowhere. Moreover, the songs are needlessly injected into the proceedings. Since they were dealing with the theme of Aliens, Shirish Kunder and his team could have been technically stronger. All that you take home from JOKER is a few stray laughs.......Read Full Review
