At times, what sounds interesting on paper fails to deliver on screen. Honest intentions, average performances & message oriented plot aren't enough for a film to succeed. Screenplay & execution too play a key role in deciding the movie's fate. Table No. 21 could have been an average thriller, if not engaging enough, but the way it proceeds is too silly to maintain the tempo. The twists & tricks are too predictable to be effective. The concept of the game is too good to be believable/acceptable, and is downright silly. Maybe that's something to be overlooked while watching a fiction. But the ending isn't convincing enough either.What should have been hard hitting & shocking fails to register any sort of emotional impact. Won't recommend.

Most people dont understand this movie possibly because you may not understand the circumstance that this movie was based on. I personally felt the impact in this movie although it was a little bit predictable but it still did deliver in terms of how impactful it was to its audience. The basis of this movie is real and happens alot in India. As you may have read in the credits. It does shed light on a very terrible deed that is not cared much by authorities over there. All in all this movie was more educatilonal and it was also thrilling to watch. I'd rate it 4 out of 5

This movie is a crossover between 'Zinda' and 'Slumdog Millionaire' but without the star cast (Sanjay, John, Lara) of the former and the director of the latter (Danny Boyle). The makers have tried to convey a social message in the shroud of a thriller but both of them fail to make any impact. Object of the movie becomes clear only towards the end. By that time you happen to loose all interest!

Paresh Rawal is an acting stalwart and he dons his hat good enough. Surprisingly, though Rajeev made great impact in his debut movie (Aamir), he is just average in this one. He needs to work a lot on his timing and camera shyness. Tina on the other hand seems to have worked hard in all the departments, but still lacks the X factor. Maybe she will achieve that in time. There is a sense of continuity in all her scenes and she deserves to be applauded for the same. Dhruv has acted very well. Such movies give you the clear idea that small budget multiplex movies by Rajat Kapoor, Ranvir Shorey, Konkona Sen Sharma, Vinay Pathak etc. were hit not just by chance or due to them being in new format, but only and only because of the aforesaid actors.

Social messages may differ in different movies, but it all boils down to the condemnation of exploitation and stripping one of his/her dignity without leaving any route of escape! Rightful and dignified existence is everyone's birth right and we should be very much instrumental in availing the same for ourselves as well as others. And this implementation should start from home. Any prolonged scenario of injustice is bound to create havoc later and affect multiple lives. So why not curb it in the initial stage itself?

An avg thriller which tries to save it self by having a message in the end of the film. If u don't have anything else then u can probably watch it.

Table no. 21 is way better than your average January thriller but its not that good as you expect still screenplay by Sheershak and Shantanu keeps you hooked but the overall story does not do justice to it. Paresh Rawal is superb as usual and last but not least RAGGING is no joke its a CRIME.

A decent thriller,worth a one time watch.
Nothing particularly interesting in this if you're already watched 13:Game of death,which was far more intriguing and interesting.
Anyway,decent stuff,great job by Paresh Rawal as usual.

watchable. Table no 21 is well made but not well written. the plot is silly, like imran khan's kidnap. Rajeev has forgotten how to act, the female lead does a good job while all the credit is taken by paresh rawal. But dat doesn't make it worth watching.

If you're expecting a blood-chilling horror show, then you'll be upset after watching Table No. 21. The setting is fab, the girl looks stunning, the boy looks smart and Paresh Rawal a.k.a Mr.Khan justifies his character role elegantly, the opening song is good too. But, the show doesn't click! What starts as a freaky show turns into a poorly adopted mishmash of copied story-line from "Sach Ka Samna" (TV Show) and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin starrer 'The Condemned' (2007). To add to the icing, the movie culminates to an "Anti-Ragging" manifesto! Nice time pass for a Sunday Morning Show, by the way!
