Sunny Leone's thriller drama "One Night Stand" has opened to mixed reviews from critics. The film, helmed by Jasmine D'Souza, has been panned for its storyline.

The actors, including Sunny, Nyra Banerjee and Tanuj Virwani have performed brilliantly, but the storyline plays the spoilsport. The film can be watched once, but only for the actors' performance, critics said.

Read what critics have said about the film below:

Bollywood Hungama critic said: "ONE NIGHT STAND suffers due to a weak script. It does have its moments, however at the box-office, the film will struggle fighting the competition from other big releases."

Mohar Basu of the Times of India said: "Sometimes good actors do have the power to exalt a mediocre script, but both Sunny and Tanuj fail to sink their teeth deep into their characters. Their acting lacks flair."

Shubhra Gupta of the Indian Express said: "For a film which wants to strike a blow for feminism and sexual freedom, there are some troubling misogynistic touches about 'hot' secretaries, and 'stay-at-home' wives."

Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times said: "Unlike other Sunny Leone films, this one isn't dull. In fact, it is lucid through most of its 99 minutes of running time. What doesn't work, though, is the forced debate around how Indians look at casual flings. It appears as an afterthought to shield steamy scenes and dance numbers."

Aarti Iyengar of BollywoodLife.com said: "Clearly, by the end of the film, you'll wonder what was the point of the film in the first place. It starts with a silly cheating game that soon turns into a petty stalking game that results in a housewreck and somehow even feminism and male ego wiggle in the storyline."
