Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Mission Istaanbul, which takes a contemporary, cautionary tale of terror, and its modern-day purveyors, and serves it up lathered with so much leftover masala that it's neither easily gobbled, nor thoughtfully chewed upon. May 7, 2019 Full Review Namrata Joshi Outlook It makes a mockery of the tragic reality of global terrorism. Rated: 1/4 Jan 30, 2019 Full Review Nirpal Dhaliwal Guardian Mission Istaanbul is fantastically awful. It's a product of a Bollywood machine. Mar 19, 2018 Full Review Nikhat Kazmi The Times of India The film has been shot well in the exotic locales of Istanbul, but there isn't much that Vivek's long hair and Zayed's serious be-spectacled look can do to save the film from ending up as a thriller that doesn't actually thrill. Rated: 2/5 Mar 19, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

Karan J Bad film from start to finish. Waste of Good location. Storyline was predictable. The lead actor's character was not too bright. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Ahmed M Nothing is interesting or entertaining about this movie, the only thing that stood out were some of the songs, that's it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/16 Full Review Audience Member Surprisngly entertaining despite bad reviews. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Day: Saturday. Date: 26 July 2008 Amt: 60/- Time: 9.30 pm Over at: 11.45 pm With: Rohan Seat No. E20, E21 Theatre: New Excelsior, Mumbai The direction was fantastic and I actually like Vivek for the first time. The plot was not bad too. The heroines could have been better. Zayed too gave a good performance. All in all a good timepass flick with some good action. Istaanbul is a beautiful place. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Worst movie I've ever seen. The terrorists have chains and hockey to fight with instead of machine guns like (Those who have seen the movie know what I'm talking about...remember - right after "the heroes" finished drinking Mountain Due) Many mistakes throughout the movie - hate that.. Loved the Bush comedy - very well written Everything else was not worth watching. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member just a strange compilation of action scenes... the "acting" was consistently bad. storyline interesting but predictable... maybe I have seen to many Hollywood & Bollywood movies... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews
