6. Joginder Tuteja from NowRunning.com, Bollywood.com: 3.5/5
Ghosh does exactly that as he lets his imagination go wild and spins a tale that ends up relating the past, present and future of these characters. This VFX filled entertainer is just the right recipe if one is looking for a family entertainer ... Full review

19. Tushar Joshi from MID Day Newspaper / Mid-Day.com: 2/5
Aladin excels in the SFX department, setting a benchmark for others to follow, but as an engaging fairy tale that weaves magic and mystery it fails on every front. Revisit the 1992 Disney animated classic instead, it's definitely a better bet ... See Full Movie Review
