Negative Reviews
2.0 “DAVID is more style, less substance.”
Bollywood Hungama
2.0 “David tries to push the envelope on Bollywood innovation with its multiple tales. Ironically for a film with three stories to tell, it is weak on content.”

1.5 “Walk in at your own risk! “
1.5 “This half boiled material is in the hands of a reasonably gifted filmmaker (Bejoy Nambiar, Shaitaan) with a rare sense of the visual, besides a strangely repetitive fixation for slow-motion in close-ups. “
