User Reviews

John Day Is Having A Bad Day & He Doesn't Know It. ♦ 32%
20 September 2013 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

What has a a very solid plot has turned into a mockery, with abrupt screenplay & extreme unwanted violence. And the high usage of profanity just adds to the awful narrative.

No dots are lined as it proceeds with a fine story about the plight of a bank manager whose daughter just dies & bank just got robbed. Things go awry for both the viewers & the makers when Randeep Hooda enters with a rusty look & foul mouth. His character is supposed to be deep, but ends up being superficial.

Performances aren't that great with respect to the marvelous cast. The second half is tad confusing & ends up in a usual standoff which is not only inappropriate but also bogey.

High time, Bollywood makers stop remaking movies and turn to something original. Box 507 is a clever thriller with shoddy filmmaking.

BOTTOM LINE: Not recommended, because all you will lose is your time and money because John Day disappoints!

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? NO

Profanity: Infinity | Violence/Gore: Very Critical | Alcohol/Smoking: Strong | Drugs: No | Porn/Sex: Strong | Foreplay/Mouth-Kiss: Very Mild
