Aiyaary review from other sources

BollywoodHungama 2/5

On the whole, AIYAARY misses the mark and is a huge letdown on the account of its flawed script and the lengthy runtime. At the box office, it will be a disappointing fare.

‘Aiyaary’ has quite a few lethargic scenes that are long-drawn and don’t do much to further the story or add to the characters. The complexity of the overarching plot allows for some exposition, but the screenplay goes overboard and often loses pace. The film could make a far more intriguing watch with a tighter edit devoid of all the dramatized entries and exits. Those expecting the clever Neeraj Pandey twists will be left wanting more. But ‘Aiyaary’ has measured performances that resound louder than its bombastic score, and they alone make it a worthwhile watch.

NDTV 1.5/5

Aiyaary wants to be a daring thriller that calls out smarmy politicians and arms dealers. But it only fires blanks. It begins with a disclaimer that its storyline is strictly fictional and that it has the utmost respect for the political class and the military establishment. The film lives up to its word. At the end of all the sound and fury, the purported targets are left unscathed. Only one poor cornered ex-soldier puts a bullet through his throat. The audience, of course, deserves much better than what Aiyaary is willing to offer.

Neeraj Pandey fails to conjure an engaging watch. Instead, he serves you a half-baked plot that just beats around the bush and leaves you apathetic by the time it reaches the finish mark. Those carrying remnants of Neeraj's previous films with them to the cinema hall will be highly disappointed!

Neeraj Pandey is no Costa-Gavras. But for our hard-earned bucks, this filmmaker drives in a forceful message on subtly in the defence hierarchy better than any Indian filmmaker. One day, I hope to see him do a film on Bofors and then the Rafale deal to complete his defence trilogy.

A line in AIYAARY said by Naseeruddin Shah sums this all, he says, “garib admi ko ungli nahi karne ka’ this sounds similar in its theme to attract the eyeballs of the common man in A WEDNESDAY, which goes like, “I am just a stupid common man”. It seems Neeraj has taken the last line literally and ‘unglied’ (meddled) with the expectations of the common man (the audience) in general regarding this espionage thriller.
