      Anupama Chopra Hindustan Times I haven't seen the original but today, it's hard to find laughs in three lecherous old men sitting in a park and staring at women. Rated: 2/5 May 2, 2018 Full Review Mihir Fadnavis Firstpost There is literally nothing in this film to make you like it, unless you really dig regressive cinema. It's also very difficult to analyze or have an educated film discussion on the film. May 2, 2018 Full Review Sudhish Kamath The Hindu While the main plot is a bit of a downer, the unexpected laughs from Akshay Kumar more than make it worth your time. This is a sub-plot that deserves a stand-alone film. May 2, 2018 Full Review Madhureeta Mukherjee The Times of India The terrific threesome play their parts with ease and Lisa adds oomph and colour to the 'grey' streaks. Rated: 3/5 May 2, 2018 Full Review Manjusha Radhakrishnan Gulf News (UAE) Watch this if you are a fan of Akshay Kumar and can turn a blind eye to some blatant objectification of women. Rated: 2/5 Aug 31, 2017 Full Review Shilpa Jamkhandikar Reuters If only Kumar were the main plot. When the movie returns to the randy old scarecrows, it feels like an anti-climax and just one more hackneyed, derivative film in a Bollywood library that's already brimming with them.

      Audience Member BS Gautnam The shaukeens movie review 💯🌟 star Akshay Kumar Trisha and Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Had potential. Watch the 80s original! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/18 Full Review Audience Member An extremely disappointing re-creation of the original which too was hardly a classic. The story was always lame and grating but the original had some decent laughters. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Day: Wednesday Date: 6 May 2015 Time: 9.30 pm With: Maa, Azeem On: HDTV Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Pity them who have gone by the reveiws and given "The Shaukeens" a miss..A total laugh riot and full on entertainment. Akshay's comic sense Great...Annu Kapoor and Anupam Kher needless to comment on...but the surprise package was Piyush Mishra and Lisa Haydon both were Superb....Though in the lines of the old Basu Chatterjee's "Shaukeen" yet This new one "The Shaukeens" is hilarious in its own ways....If you haven't better go and see for some hearty laughs .... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Story of 3 old guys who are still looking for sex with a young girl. Some moments are genuinely funny. Akshay Kumar has played role of himself and did scenes laughing at himself.An Ok Movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
