RANJITH VAIKKATTIL @ranj_vktl
It is slow paced. Some emotions should be given time to digest. Get in to the characters, feel them and watch patiently. You'll enjoy! #Roy
#Roy was a let-down! Wasn't expecting much by way of acting with Arjun Rampal & Jacqueline in the cast, but even Ranbir Kapoor was bad!
Kanika Kakkar @shimlamirch23
#Roy is at the core of it all a love story which finds a mysterious representation. Could make up for a Valentines watch.
Saurabh Patel @saurabhpatelseo
Plot of #Roy is unpredictable. Since nobody knows what will happen next in the second half, it looks gripping. #RoyMovie #arjunrampal
#Roy is a very slow movie with a weak story & screenplay. Songs/Music are okay. Actor's are not at their best. Rating: **
Himanshu Lakshya Chaturvedi @232649

#Arjun Rampal looks dapper in #Roy with a hat to complete his look #Anupam Kher plays the jolly dad of Arjun #Roy. Crowd welcomes Ranbir 's entry with cheers and applause #Roy. Bold and beautiful Jacqueline mesmerises the dapper Arjun #RoyJacqueline has a double role #Roy And damsel Jacqueline does a Chittyan Kaliyan on the streets of Malaysia. The look that Ranbir showers on Jacqueline can floor anyone. #Sooraj dooba hai #Roy is filled with suspense. #Roy is painstakingly slow. #Roy tense moment between Arjun and Jacqueline Yaara re is a heartbreaking track #Roy
#Roy slow boring & trying to understand why Ranbir played that role any robot could. Disappointed

#Roy is a train-wreck in slow-motion. Excessive exposition tests your patience. Aesthetic visuals & good music are the only saving grace.
