Department (2012) Hindi Movie Review Aggregator
Ram Gopal Verma’s ‘Department’ that has been released today seems headed for the same fate as his recent directorial ventures. Reviews seem to be quite negative, from the looks of it. Here are some major ones.
Rediff calls it yet another failed experiment from RGV: “Varma, predictably, has fun with a couple of quirky lines — especially one that blatantly introduces Nathalia Kaur’s item number, a cameltoe-y milestone for Bollywood — and a scene with the camera mounted on the striker on a carrom-board is genuinely imaginative, but Department is an utter waste.”
Nowrunning says it can leave you with a migraine attack: “It wouldn’t be wrong to compare RGV’s Department to bhelpuri as quite in the manner in which the Indian junk is made Ramu unabashedly goes ahead mixing a little bit of crime, a little bit of politics, a little romance, some revenge, some backstabbing, some violence and some raunchiness and thoroughly shakes it up (literally courtesy his camera angles) to create a film.”
Zee News feels its an utter waste of talent: “If you’d thought ‘Phoonk’ and ‘Aag’ were the worst of films to have come out of the Ram Gopal Varma camp, it’s time you rethought about it. ‘Department’ takes the ridiculous story-telling skills of the filmmaker a notch above his previous ones. Or below, for that matter.”
