Even though the first half of the film is engaging enough, the second half gets a bit stretched up, thus pushing the audiences into a 'yawn-zone' RAJA NATWARLAL is essentially an Emraan Hashmi film, which attracts its major audiences from the single screen theaters. The film is bound to face some 'elephantine' competition as its release coincides with the Ganesh Chaturti festival weekend. In addition to that, the next week will also see the release of a hard hitting MARY KOM, which could possibly apply the brakes on RAJA NATWARLAL.

While the film has some truly thrilling moments, it also disappoints in many ways. The lazy script makes some situations seem too simplistic and convenient. Things easily fall into place for Natwarlal and if life was so easy, a lot of us would be busy conning each other. A tad more clever screenplay would have made them more challenging for Raja, making his character awe-inspring and a rung above the rest of us. This film had huge potential but sadly one walks out of the theatre unimpressed by Raja Natwarlal’s antics and this film.
Rating:1/5 Review By:Mohar Basu Site:Koimoi
Raja Natwarlal dropped way below what was expected of it. Besides Paresh Rawal, no one even attempts to revive the failed film. In a film when Emraan’s smooches too fail to light up the screen, there isn’t much matter to draw audiences. This con show is one bore show and you wouldn’t miss much if you don’t catch this film. Not everything can be called cinema.

It’s the performances where 'Raja Natwarlal' manages to score. The casting is spot on. The talented Emraan beautifully blends vengeance and vulnerability. He’s back to locking lips and packing a punch and fans will simply lap him up. Paresh as Yogi brings a certain dignity to the role of a crook in a way only he can. His is the most layered character in the film and he pulls it off with panache. Kay Kay Menon’s steely eyes and cold-blooded reserve bring to life the savage scoundrel of Varda. The only weak link is Humaima Malik who overdoes the part of a shrill, over-concerned girlfriend. The music is very average, which is not common in Kunal Deshmukh films. But given that Emraan is back as the roadside Romeo hero, and that Bollywood has well trained us to go easy on the logic bit, 'Raja Natwarlal' could just be a watchable fare.
Rating:2.5/5 Review By:Rahul Desai Site:Mumbai Mirror
Emraan Hashmi sports the face of a perennial hustler, and is much improved with better voice (and lip) modulation. Kay Kay as Vardha delivers one of the coolest interval shots in a long time-thanks to the director's voguish use of a thumping background score. Paresh Rawal is what Paresh Rawal does, and even Miss Malik contributes to the illusion as a striking song machine. This film is far from perfect, but makes for an acceptable non-Italian version of 'The Indian Job'-by entertaining solely within the confines of a revenge drama. The laughs are best left to Danny and gang.
Rating:3/5 Review By:Subhash K Jha Site:IANS
Sassy and slick, "Raja Natwarwal" is a con caper done up in playful shades and mischievous flavour. It's enjoyable while it lasts. But you don't come away with anything besides the feeling that the material should have carried for heft. If only everyone was not busy being someone they are not.
