Critics have panned Vikram Bhatt directorial "Love Games," produced by Mukesh Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt. Starring Taara Alisha Berry, Gaurav Arora and Patralekha, the thriller film is about the concept of threesome and other sexual fantasies.
The trailer of the film garnered attention for its bold storyline, but the film failed to impress the critics. Sex paired up with a thriller or horror theme has always worked for the Bhatt camp; however, the latest film might not be able to do well at the box office.
Read below what critics have said about Patralekha-Gaurav starrer "Love Games."
Khalid Mohamed of Spotboye said: "Unavoidable conclusion: Bollywood's brand of sex flicks are going from bad to perverse."
Urmimala Banerjee of BollywoodLife.com said: "Those who just want to pass time for a couple of hours won't be disappointed with this one."
Sarita A Tanwar of DNA said: "If you love games, stay away. After watching this one, you wouldn't come close to even board games."
Abhijit Badgujar of Koimoi.com said: "Love Games is an easily avoidable flick. There is nothing new or exciting, not even in a sensual way. Simply AVOID!"
Uday Bhatia of live mint said: "Amid all the madness, Arora and Berry find a way to be watchable. The same cannot be said about the film, which flies right past so-bad-it's-good and lands somewhere in the murky region between ridiculous and pitiable."
Namrata Thakker of Rediff.com said: "The story takes off in the second half but it misses the mark because of its predictable story, cliched dialogues and all-too-easy screenplay."
Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times said: "Vikram Bhatt is just juggling with the idea of cheap thrills without actually putting anything substantial on offer."
