Munna Michael has received mostly negative reviews from critics. The average rating is 1.5 so far.
On the whole, MUNNA MICHAEL has its moments but struggles due to weak writing. However, Tiger Shroff’s fans would be a happy lot as the actor rocks the show with his dance and action. At the box office, the film’s growth will depend on word of mouth.
Director Sabbir Khan and writer Vimi Datta have designed a film that is serviced by Shroff’s two skills – dancing and action. In spite of being predictable story with slack storytelling, Khan once again (Heropanti, Baaghi) showcases just what is needed to keep Shroff’s fans satisfied. Put in enough of these two elements and who cares about logic, story, acting or originality.
Like I said before, if all you want to see Tiger Shroff dancing a lot and Nawaz being, well, Nawaz, then Munna Michael may be fleetingly entertaining for you. Otherwise, it is just a boring, confused masala flick masquerading as a half-hearted tribute to the late Michael Jackson.
Munna Michael is only for fans of Tiger Shroff. All ye that haven't yet figured out what he is about, stay out of the way. You aren't likely to go home humming and dancing after watching this one.
Well, if you’re in the mood to get rid of the monsoon blues with the foot-tapping ding dang, ding dang ditty, you should get introduced to Munna Michael; he’s not making breaking any new ground, but his moves are certainly infectious.
MJ should live forever, MJ should live forever, but this isn’t the right tribute to the moonwalking King Of Pop. This forgettable 138-minute film can be better described as this one-liner somebody whispered in the dark right before the end credits: Ye sab alag hi zone me hain (They’re in a different zone).
Of course, Tiger steals the show with his dance moves and action sequences, but unfortunately that’s not enough to make him the saving grace of the movie. Meet Bros, Tanishq Bagchi and Vishal Mishra’s music is hardly bearable and a few dance portions of the movie are reminiscent of Hrithik Roshan’s Bang Bang. Tiger Shroff’s fans might like the film but it doesn’t fly and sinks without a trace.
The trailer looked promising and I had entered the hall with some expectations if not a lot. But the film turned out to be a disappointment. Even Tiger’s dance and Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s brilliant performance will not be able to save this film.
Munna will dance, Munna will fight, Munna will dance and fight together, Munna will love his father wholeheartedly, Munna will serve Mahinder unquestioningly, Munna will win over the local beauty, and Munna will win all the dance competitions he enters, across cities. Whatever the story is. Yes, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, we get you. It pays to be fair in Bollywood. And yes, Karan Johar, we hear you too. Nepotism rocks.
