Abhishek Bachchan, Asin, Rishi Kapoor and Supriya Pathak starrer All Is Well was released yesterday. We were expecting a decent family entertainer as the movie is directed by Umesh Shukla who has delivered a beautiful film like Oh My God! in 2012. Well, it seems like Umesh falls way below of expectations this time as the movie is literally thrashed by every critic. Let’s read what the top critics have to say on All Is Well.
All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Srijana Das From TOI: All Is Well lacks the cutting-edge sharpness or glittering depth of Umesh Shukla’s OMG. With its old-world feel, it’s not a cool cocktail but a teashop bun, dunked in sentimental tea. It could’ve been way better – but there’s some sweetness too in this simple treat.

All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Raja Sen from Rediff: Near the end of the film, all the relentless running around is stopped and Kapoor and Bachchan finally talk things out, both actors hitting the right notes during the dramatic dialogue and actually making the moment work, giving this painful film a sceneful of sincerity. But by then, it’s far too late. It’s a tell-tale gesture; This isn’t encouragement, it’s a fine actor giving up on a bad film. Rishi Kapoor’s tapping out.

All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Surabhi Redkar From Koimoi: All Is Well was supposed to be an entertainer with a social message, unfortunately it fails at both. Generation gaps causing problems in relationships also need logic to it and that is where All Is Well completely misses the point. I am going with a 1.5/5 for this film.

All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Saibal Chaterjee from NDTV: All is far from well with All Is Well, but this road trip dramedy has just about enough impetus not to be thrown completely off its chosen track by its occasional inertia. The climax of All Is Well, which centres on its Bangkok-returned singer-hero mending fences with his long estranged dad and his cruelly cold-shouldered girlfriend, is both overly contrived and cringingly preachy. The rest of the film, the more sluggish stretches included, is passably watchable.

All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Shubha Shetty Saha from Mid day : This film aims to be funny, emotional and touching, talking about how children misunderstand the issues that their parents face, and harbour resentment. But what you eventually get is a bunch of bumbling idiots passed off as bad men, a smatter of clueless cops, an insipid story, actors who seem to be going about doing their job just for the heck of it and background and foreground music that seems to belong to some other film.

All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Komal Nahta: On the whole, all is clearly not well with All Is Well. With little to offer, it will fail to make its mark at the box-office. If it still manages to control the losses of the persons associated with it, it will be due to the handsome price it has fetched for the satellite rights (pre-sold).

All Is Well Movie Critics Review by Bollywood Life: The story is so dull you wish for the interval to come soon in the first half and the end in the second half. Shukla takes us to the late 90s and early 2000 when Punjabis were stereotyped as loud, brash and gaudy. Your ‘well’ness is in your hands. Watch it if you absolutely have to!
