Jhootha Hi Sahi Watch-O-Meter
Jhootha Hi Sahi Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 1.5/5
Jhootha Hi Sahi is an absolute letdown in terms of content. Given its high costs on one hand and weak merits on the other, the film will make a big hole in the pockets of its investors.
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3.5/5
The film largely follows the idiom which Abbas Tyrewala enunciated in his debut venture, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, reiterating his use of youthful lingo (strange becomes ajeebs here), wisecrack humour and `cool gang’ bonding, with a celebration — and a spoof — of the traditional Bollywood `andaaz’ (style) of essaying romance.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 1.5/5
Save for John Abraham who offers an earnest, endearing performance, and a few light moments between the friends, this film is a plodding bore
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 1/5
On the whole,Jhootha Hi Sahi is a high-cost dull fare which will entail huge losses to its investors.
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 2/5
No two ways about it, then, the casting of Pakhi as the heroine is the enterprise’s fatal flaw. She isn’t right for the role which required far more vulnerability. At no point, does she evoke your unbridled empathy just like the rest of this Jhootha etc etc…zzzzzz.
Anupama Chopra (NDTVMovies.com) 2/5
There is a sliver of a story here but Abbas has translated it into a clumsy film that never gets off the ground. The scenes have a strange, stagey awkwardness, almost like a bad television serial
Minty Tejpal (Mumbai Mirror) 1/5
Jhootha Hi Sahi is a too clever by half attempt at telling a cool, nerdy story which falls flat on its face. The clumsy film is stuffed with cardboard characters, silly set ups with corny insider jokes and a sagging story line which is stretched right from the word go.
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 1.5/5
This is what they call the Idiot Plot, one that entirely rests on a minor miscommunication or misunderstanding to stretch a silly premise forever
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 1/5
It’s that the film is a complete waste of time, money and effort (park your car, buy the tickets, laugh at the weak jokes and cringe every time Abraham stutters). And o, I hate to get personal, Pakhi please do something about your enormous prizefighter arms. You’re not competing with Abraham are you?
Aniruddha Guha (DNA India) 2/5
The film may have its moments, but not enough to leave you with a smile at the end. Not even recommended as a date movie
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 2/5
For a script so hopelessly dependent on conversation, Jhootha Hi Sahi is one spark-free one on one
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2/5
But the trouble with Jhootha Hi Sahi is that it has a lame plot and that the supporting cast has more heft than the lead players.
