      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Clearly, the film got so busy with the window dressing that it forgot to focus upon feeling. Aladdin is a gorgeous-looking but dull ride. Rated: 1/5 Apr 18, 2019 Full Review Anil Sinanan Time Out This Bollwood take on the classic Arabian Nights tale fails to cast a spell. Rated: 1/5 Oct 23, 2017 Full Review Nikhat Kazmi The Times of India Okay, so the film makers wanted to recreate the popular fairy tale as a modern day fantasy, replete with real life characters. But truly, we fail to get the point because the film doesn't work at any level. Rated: 2/5 Feb 27, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      r 9 From the very first scene I knew this was going one of two ways: Diabolical or passably entertaining - nowhere in between or above the latter. For me, I somehow felt suitably entertained by 'Aladin'. It's not a great film, at all. However, it's in a similar vein to productions like 'The Cat in the Hat' so always divides opinion. If you can find enjoyment, you'll obviously like it but otherwise you'll hate it. I'm under the former. The cast help a lot. Riteish Deshmukh suits the role of Aladin, while Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt are enjoyable as Genius and Jaffar. Despite the title/titular character, it's more so a film that refers to <em>'Aladdin'</em> rather than a remake/reimagining of the famous folk tale. I liked how they set this up, sure it is dumb but it works in my opinion. I did start getting bored towards the end, so the run time is most definitely too long - 90 minutes, as opposed to 132, would've been ideal. I'd be rating this much lower if not for the likeable cast and the fact that it doesn't take itself seriously; until the end, I guess. I entirely get if you dislike this, but I didn't... quite the opposite to be honest.
