Bang Bang is an official remake of the mediocre Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz starrer Knight And Day, and it’s fashioned as a fast-paced actioner, which basically means the plot is going to be threadbare. Hrithik Roshan is Rajveer, a mysterious thief who’s stolen the Kohinoor diamond, no less. As he dodges both the cops and the henchmen of a criminal mastermind who wants the rock, Rajveer meets Harleen (Katrina), who gets sucked into this globetrotting adventure with him.

Siddharth Anand's Bang Bang makes more noise and little sense. This desi adaptation of the 2010 Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz action thriller, Knight And Day, has charm in abundance, primarily because of its effervescent lead pair -- Rajveer/Jai ( Hrithik Roshan) and Harleen (Katrina Kaif). But it lacks coherence. Disbelief is writ large on the face, right at the start.

Bang Bang is all about Roshan stealing the Kohinoor -- which, given the film's advertorial bent, I'm surprised wasn't a product placement for basmati rice. The world is thus after him, but he falls for a naive girl dreamily hunting for a "kitna susheel" boy, possibly the only girl in the world who takes one look at the legendary diamond and asks what it is. Brilliant. Besides the consistently cringeworthy dialogue, all Bang Bang holds are stunts.

There are many beautiful locations in this ....ummm....bang binge. Prague, Greece, London, Shimla, Dehra Dun and...Pizza Hut.
Yup, one major action sequence featuring Hrithik and Katrina, the Golden Couple on the run (gee, what fun!) is set in a pizza shop. In fact this particular chain seems to be very good at delivering their goods, considering Danny Denzongpa, playing an international kingpin, is seen nibbling at the same pizza brand at the start of the film.

Bang Bang is a plain film that is mounted on a breathtaking canvas and remains steady at the superficial level only. Low on logic and more on frills and airs, the best thing about Bang Bang is Hrithik Roshan. He sincerely drives the film with his swagger and hot bod droolworthy looks, with Katrina aiding him with her cutesy innocence.
Bang Bang is everything that Knight and Day was about and nothing even remotely as exciting as the original. It isn’t bland or boring just doesn’t match up to my expectations of the film. Gorgeous stunts, picturesque locales and a paper thin script might create a watchable film but it won’t be a brilliant or memorable watch. Hrithik and Katrina despite giving sincere and earnest performances fail to retain the film’s oomph quotient consistently. It is Siddharth Anand’s lack of vision that has cost the film gravely. Nothing except the script can be blamed for it. If stunts can sustain you for an entire film, then Bang Bang is a steal. Others might need more than just that to satiate themselves.

Overall, the film's wide release during the long holiday should definitely work in its favour. Add to that, the popular starcast of the film will ensure that the movie sails through comfortably at the box-office. Another plus point to BANG BANG is that it has the least opposition from HAIDER at the box-office. So, if you are looking high-octane action scenes, sleek visuals, melodious music and if you love masala movies, then BANG BANG should definitely be your pick for this extended weekend.

‘Bang Bang!’ is less about logic, and more about fluff. And, that’s not a bad thing, if it had been done well. But, 'Bang Bang!' ends up being an unimaginative ogle-fest. Clearly, technology has handed us more options than just Bollywood to go for.

Why is Bollywood so chary of the pure, no holds-barred thriller? In case we can’t deal with flying bullets, we are given schmaltzy back-stories of deceased brothers and teary parents. And does the product placement and promotion never end? And flung in so blatantly? ‘Darr ke aagey jeet hai’ ? Okay then. the leading man is an electric dancer, but is used well in only one number : the other songs-and-dances are not worth a song and dance. Hrithik is the film’s eye candy and the prime shooter, all rolled into one, and gives you some amount of bang. The rest is burble.
Rating:1.5/5 Review By:Rohit Vats Site:Hindustan Times
Bang Bang is one such film, where the lead actor looks engrossed and too careful about creating a brand image. He believes whatever he is doing is going to be applauded by the audience. It’s also like that biscuit ad where everybody is running after a truck. The actors look perplexed but the brand somehow remains in the memory. The postcard images and toned physiques may help the audience in brand recall, but without any value.

Hrithik Roshan looks good and that's nothing new but don't expect any great acting here since he was just expected to run from one place to the other. Katrina Kaif was given a silly role and there was little she could do about it. Music by Vishal Shekhar is average. Some songs are catchy and shot well too but over all the music doesn't make a mark.If your idea of a fun film is watching two good looking stars running around senselessly for two hours and thirty minutes then go and watch Bang Bang. The makers have put in a lot of money. Is it wasted or well spent, only time will tell. I would suggest you save your hard earned money and watch Bang Bang on TV someday soon.

Hrithik is superb. Katrina’s performance in the film is just an extension of her work in her previous ventures. Veteran actor Danny Denzogpa is masterly and so is Javed Jaffrey. But the two indeed have very little screen time to show their worth. Music by Vishal-Shekhar is good but nothing beyond that. (read: songs became an instant hit soon after they were released). Overall, ‘Bang Bang’ is a complete let down. The film has nothing really to offer expect some breath-taking action sequences and a sizzling hot chemistry between Hrithik and Katrina. Watch the film only if you are a fan of either of the two actors!
Rating:2/5 Review By;Saibal Chatterjee Site:NDTV
Hrithik’s beefy presence cannot compensate for the unbearable lightness of the character that he is called upon to make some sense of. He gives it his best shot, but at the best of times it is a losing battle. As for Katrina, she appears to be doing pretty much what she has done all these years – pout, preen and look pretty. If Bang Bang is a reliable enough pointer, it is apparent that there is little bang left in her dwindling buck. But do look out for brief appearances by Deepti Naval and Kanwaljit Singh and a solid-as-ever performance from Pavan Malhotra as a wily government agent who keeps getting in the hero’s way when the latter thinks he’s got things neatly wrapped up.Bang Bang is strictly for Hrithik Roshan fans and for those that do not want an action flick to be anything more than just that.
