Fukrey is a smartly directed light comedy of four loafers - Hunny, Choocha, Lali, and Zafar - with modest ambitions. There's a lot to like in Fukrey. It sticks to the subtle and shies away from the tomfoolery and slapstick you've come to expect in films of the genre. However, a few shortcomings keep Fukrey from hitting the bullseye. The crises in the love stories are unconvincing and easily overcome as is the big hurdle in the climax. Fukrey captures a similar spirit, albeit in a very different flavor and the small film experiment about life's trivialities manages to entertain for most part.
Critic Score: 3/5

Fukrey' is one hell of a laughter ride. In this age of cheesy and cheap comedy which the Hindi film industry is now so (in)famous for churning out, this one – ‘Fukrey’ – despite shouting out ‘Going Cheap June 14’, is thankfully not so. The film is packed with neat amounts of laughter-inducing funny moments and one does not have his/her attention wander off for even a fraction of a second. Watch ‘Fukrey’ if you crave for generous dollops of laughter to colour your weekend up… Go cheap! Three and a half stars for Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s handiwork!

Fukrey was a film that heavily disappointed me! As someone who went loaded with expectations, I did not see any honesty in the shallow plot hurriedly translated into a movie. With shabbily etched out characters and their largely flimsy issues, it is the lack of adequate depth in the story that digs its grave.

Fukrey is full-on entertainment although it stops shy of being an outstanding comedy. But the fact that it gets tantalisingly close is no mean feat. For all its flaws, it’s definitely worth a watch.

Four slackers in Delhi seeking fast cash make a deal with a ruthless don. But when things go wrong, as they inevitably do, they must pay the price for it. That familiar premise gets a fresh coat of paint in 'Fukrey', with co-writer and director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba putting a new spin on some old clichés. Yet, while individual scenes inspire laughs, the film doesn't quite fly because there are too many gags and not enough plot. A tighter script and more screen time for the excellent Pankaj Tripathi, as enterprising campus security guard Pandeyji, might have helped turn this moderately entertaining film into a rollicking good caper.

FUKREY is a twisted and delectably uproarious take on the shortcuts the youth of today indulge in. Watch it for the sheer novelty and uniqueness it lays on display. Recommended!

But the problem with Fukrey is that the characters and milieu are more engaging than the plot, which gets more convoluted and far-fetched as it thickens. By the climax, the writing becomes slack. Anything is possible.But there is enough pep and fun in Fukrey to make it pleasantly diverting. I’m going with three stars. I’m not suggesting that you drop everything and get to the theater. But if you happen to stroll in, you are likely to come out smiling.

Four Fukreys which loosely translates as good-for-nothing waste fellows are let loose in the gallis of Dilli in order to a) save their skins b) earn some ill-gotten moolah c) run miles away from a foul-mouthed female goon. This may be a new film, but it is certainly not madly novel. Delhi Belly had the same idea with the addition of some excrement and expletives, minus one fukra. Also minus the fun, because this combo of Dilli slackers-using very Dilli slang-doing very Dilli things already feels like a template.

It is a light hearted fun film that captures the flavour of the North and weaves a natural charm. Fukrey works in parts and some of them are really funny, but overall it feels like an exercise in wanting to be a little bit of everything. It sounds like Delhi Belly, looks like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and somewhere in between struggles to make its own identity.

'Fukrey' borrows heavily from the other bromances, even slipping into the 'Delhi Belly' tone, only it isn't as much fun. The story about four boys – two best buds, and the other two joining the gang later on – who’d take any number of shortcuts to accomplish their dreams isn’t novel but interesting, no doubt, but one that required a tighter edit and a lot of fine-tuning. 'Fukrey' is a good attempt, but just not good enough. Despite the pitfalls, 'Fukrey' flaunts some truly well-written comic scenes that rely entirely on great lines and subtle performances, something unimaginable on the larger-than-life Bollywood canvas.
