Critics Review


This one is a solid prescription for entertainment

Anubhuti Kashyap�s first mainstream film boasts of her ability to bring out a host of nuanced performances. She shows her potential to direct a story in a manner that can thoroughly engross the audience, while also taking it in a direction that makes it a conversation-starter for the right reasons. Every character in Doctor G, performs their part finely to pump life into the story. Go, watch this at a theatre near you, sehat ki liye achcha hai!(more)

This 'typica'' Ayushmann Khurrana film is part cringe, part heartwarming, but still watchable

Doctor G could have been a much better movie. But looking at the first half, one realises it could have been much worse as well. In the end, it�s a middling coming-of-age social drama that will find its audience. It manages to stay non-preachy and even though it attempts to give clean humour, does get cringey in parts. What saves it are the actors, who breathe new life into a tired script. Go watch it for them, if nothing else!(more)

If a film does not treat its own serious theme with respect, how can we?

ust when it appears that Doctor G has got its act together though, it wraps up with a ridiculous song accompanying the end credits that, in its filming, contradicts everything that has been said until then. Doctor G is the story of a man who learns to take women seriously. And along comes this number, with Uday/Ayushmann in baggy doctor�s garb singing Mera dil dhak dhak karta hai surrounded by women in tight, tiny attire in the same colour combination while Fatima/Rakul in a figure-hugging, body-baring outfit heaves her bosom and thrusts it towards him as he lies down.

Ayushmann Khurrana�s film gets the diagnosis right, but treatment is palliative

We have crossed the bridge where screenwriters have to repeatedly underline that they have created an unusual character or conflict. Now, a mother on a dating site isn�t an unseen idea; the expectation is of nuance. Here, all the adult characters are a tad too direct, as if they were written with the same pen. Like how Nandini throws the code of medical ethics at Uday, every time he transgresses, one wants Anubhuti to lose the journalist�s touch to treat the subject a little more cinematically, and find a little more heft between the lines.(more)

Ayushmann Khurrana Stars In Cinematic Pill That Does Its Job To Great Effect

Doctor G is an entertaining comedy that handles the serious business of getting a clutch of important points across without losing its balance. Portions that possess depth and veracity propel the film forward. Ones that don't do not do any permanent damage. Together, they add up to a film of infectious vivacity that also has provide food for thought. (more)

Ayushmann Khurrana, Rakul Preet film is just serviceable

Ayushmann Khurrana film is so busy earning its feminist cred that it forgets the show-more-than-tell dictum, and never becomes the cracker it could have been.(more)

Not 'Male Touch', But Ayushmann Khurrana Might Lose The 'Audience�s Touch' If This Continues!

All said and done, in a scene, Ayushmann Khurrana�s Uday says to Ayesha Kaduskar�s Kavya �Don�t be stupid because you�re not!� & those are my exact feelings for this film defined in one line. (more)
