Emraan Hashmi’s Raja Natwarlal opened to a decent occupancy at Box Office India. The film collected 5.70 Crores on its opening day (Friday). Raja Natwarlal is getting mixed reviews from critics and the film is getting above average word of mouth. Emran Hasmi’s fan base and film’s strong publicity is working in film’s favor. The film is doing better business in single screen cinemas and getting mixed response from multiplex audience. Raja Natwarlal have Emraan Hashmi, Humaima Malick, Kay Kay Menon and Paresh Rawal in lead roles.
Let’s see what some of the notable critics has to say about the film:
Madhureeta Mukherjee from Times Of India (TOI)
The plot travels from Mumbai to Dharamshala and Cape Town but director Kunal Deshmukh retains firm control. The story packs in paisa, pyaar, confidence, over-confidence, chummas, chases, corrupt cops, cricket associations, surprises and some rather nice songs, but keeps its weight under control. Go watch – this one is, ahem, definitely worth a kiss. (Source: Review)

If you can get past the foolishness of the plot, director Kunal Deshmukh’s film is mildly engaging. Emraan Hashmi plays Raja, a charming, street-smart hustler.Still, Raja Natwarlal isn’t one of those actively awful films. But neither does it sparkle. (Source: Review)

On the whole, Raja Natwarlal is an entertaining thriller in parts but it lacks in two departments – the love story (which is very weak) and the music (which, in spite of being good, is not at all popular). Also, the con becomes too much to digest after a point of time. The film will, therefore, not be able to make its mark at the box-office. (Source: Review)
