Top 10 Worst Reviews of MSG: The Messenger Movie


MSG is an ad that runs for three hours and is painful. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan will test your patience and leave you with a splitting headache! This is probably the first time where I am compelled to give a film a rating as this. 0 star it is for MSG: The Messenger. (BollywoodLife)

It’s better to remain film-less on Friday than watching something as torturous as MSG. The opening credits of the movie was quite baffling, as one could only read Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan’s name mentioned in every department – actor, story (?) writer, music composer, director, singer, cinematography. Did I mention that he’s a footballer, photographer and a martial art trainer too? (Bollywood Celebden)

Oh my eyes. I was at last night’s premiere of ‘MSG, Messenger Of God’, and I’m still to recover. The Dera Sacha Sauda chief who appears In and As in the movie, was right there, amongst us lesser mortals. And I was hard put to figure where there was more glitter, off or on screen. (Indian Express)

Watching most Bollywood movies calls for a healthy suspension of disbelief, but if you dare make the trip to see the wonder that is “MSG: The Messenger of God”, make sure to leave behind every ounce of common sense or sanity that you possess, and submit yourself to the events unfolding on screen.

The problem with most desi films is that they’re neither genuinely good, or bad enough to be entertaining. We get a Dunno Y… Na Jaane Kyun or a One Two Three every now and then, but these gems too few and far in between. Step aside and make room for MSG – it’s the granddaddy of them all, the Nazar Suraksha Kawach of these gems. It is not just a film, but also a crash course on so-bad-it’s-good filmmaking and a thesis on guilty pleasure entertainment. (FirstPost)

This is not a movie. A whopping 197 minutes long, this is a poorly assembled, terrifically tacky and tremendously ill-conceived showcase for a self-styled spiritual leader — self-styled because no costume designer in the world could match up to this man. (Review by Rediff Movies)

[dropcap]7. [/dropcap]Coming to the movie, MSG: The Messenger is not a Movie, its a Saga. Something like this has never been made before and the chances of being made in the future is feeble, of course with the exception of MSG 2. Yes, you heard that right Guruji is so confident of his Noble attempt at what he calls a Film, that hes already shot the sequel! (clapsNslaps)

After so much of self promotion of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, MSG Messenger of God is finally in theaters today. We wonder why? If you think the film is here to woo the audience, hold back your thoughts right there! You guys will not feel bad for missing this film in the big screen, only for those audience (ardent fans) who doesn’t care about the logic and would just want to have a hearty laugh (not necessarily in that order) shall watch it!

Others please stay away… (Filmibeat)

Now what can I say about the movie!! Dude, you better go and watch a Reality show. That would be much entertaining and If only If you like to watch a BORING and WEIRD Shit then this movie is all okay for you. We are not saying that the movie MSG: The Messenger is bad because it is freaking bad already. Okay, now I think we are only counting the bad points of MSG: The Messenger. Right? But these are the only thing which we can count!! (Bollywoodchat)

This is a movie that is so bad, it’s good. It is horrifying and hilarious at the same time. So what do you get out of it? Three hours of disbelief plastered on your face that you cannot wipe off, no matter how hard you try. Go watch it if you want to get astounded. (Reuters India)
