Then is the time when he comes to know about Rohit and Karan.
: On the other hand, I seem to have run out of ways to complain about Sameer's lyrics. Do not mistake this film as another love triangle about two guys fighting for one girl because it's completely different.
I saw a good Hindi movie after a long time. Naqaab has a distinctly different style of story telling, and coupled with some exquisite shooting locations it is a visual treat to the eye.
It would be unfair to reveal any more of the plot because that would give away the surprise element of the film. External Reviews Reviewed in the United States on April 29, 2011. You can still see all customer reviews for the product. Hell, why? full review, Thumbs down, :

I would reccommend you to do the same. by Satyajit, In all honesty, I was so stunned by the banality of the plot that I was convinced this couldn't be a rip-off. Akshaye Khanna is good, but this isn't his best of roles either.

Yeah Amit, I haven't seen "Dot the I", but have heard that "Naqaab" is a frame by frame, dialogue by dialogue copy of "Dot the I". Icons taken from Silk icons and iconspedia.com. The best songs are Ek Din (which stands out with its memorable Spanish guitar intro) and Aye Dil sung by Sunidhi Chauhan. Given the locales and the subject of the movie it was very easy to go overboard in these departments. As a huge fan of Bobby Deol, I had to see this movie. The first half seems a half-baked plot where all the three leading protagonists (Akshaye Khanna, Bobby Deol and the new Urvashi Sharma) are trying to create a love-triangle/drama of sorts. We've happily gone along with their stories of mistaken identities, reincarnations, double roles, death-avenging relatives, and murderous spouses.But with Naqaab they come up with something so bizarre that's it's really difficult to digest. At the end of this movie, I didn't know who to hate.
I loved that movie and was saddened to see this awful remake. ...to pile on ridiculous twists and turns that exist solely because you wouldn’t have seen them coming... What was the whole idea behind making Sophie work at a Burger King. From the outside Bobby's home looks like the Queen of England's holiday home, but the interiors are the kind of tasteless sets they used to construct at Hyderabad's Banjara Hills for those B-grade family dramas in the eighties.

full review, So-So,
I loved the film very much it was interesting Good story-line good direction good acting good casting good songs I liked akshaye khanna performance he was good in his character Urvashi did wonderful in her debut Bobby was impressive in his role Other were decent in their characters Songs are my favorite I keep listening to them My rating is 8/10. I think I am sort-of okay with movies being "remade". The location has been changed to Dubai- that's it. A parking lot is full of cars. Music is excellent composed by one of my favourite composers Pritam. Blogical Conclusion, The New Sunday Express
Naqaab has a distinctly different style of story telling, and coupled with some exquisite shooting locations it is a visual treat to the eye. Times Now This travesty is made worse by forgettable songs and third rate acting by the whole cast. Saying anymore would be giving the plot away. Right before watching Naqaab I understood that if I have ever to catch this Abbas-Mustan thriller that would be only for newly introduced Urvashi Sharma. There's none of that nail-biting tension, no suspense and an anti-climax to top it all. Just days before her marriage to Bobby, she meets and strikes up a friendship with an aspiring actor played by Akshaye Khanna. This not an adaptation or an interesting take on the original. The first half of the movie is below par but I have given it a rating of 6 because the last 30 minutes really takes the graph of the movie to a new level. I like giving the makers the benefit of doubt, but I am amused nevertheless.

He shows maturity and professionalism...he has given a power-packed performance! Cannn't you see how blatantly Naqaab has been copied. It was supposed to be the most shocking triller of the year, yeah right! In most cases, it could be explained away by something like, "we noticed the glitch after the scene was shot and there were schedule/budget issues and thus we could not re-shoot it". Karan (Bobby Deol) and Sophie (Urvashi Sharma) are deeply in love with each other and are all set to get married. ...e. The script seems bizarre as the concept is extremely different... Thanks Amit, saw the trailer and am certainly putting down 'Dot the i' on my to-watch list.
9 nays. The film's tag-line said it all which is "The most shocking thriller of the year". :
And it isn't Akshaye's best performance either. Bobby Deol muss man mögen, naja. And Abbas-Mustan know that better than anyone else. not the best they've made, not the worst either, Self styled thriller that failed to thrill the audience, Funny if anything, but not worth spending money on.
full review, Thumbs down, by Ashok Nayak,
But if they are copying it, the least they can do is copy it well. For years Abbas-Mustan have ripped off popular films from Hollywood and delivered successful Hindi remakes: Khiladi, Baazigar, Daraar, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Ajnabee, Humraaz and Aitraaz.But with Naqaab they've hit their weakest note because it's a thriller without any thrills if you ask me. Sophie meets Vicky (Akshaye Khanna) and has a change of heart. 1 so-so
The suspense is there from the beginning. and what is their motive? The saving grace is that the director of photography, the editor, and the sound designer have shown considerable restraint. The curiosity created by the black and white camera shots.
Naqaab certainly isn't your ordinary run-off-the-mill Bollywood love triangle. What I find most amazing about any work of art is the passion with which the artist creates it. This is one. looks like a half-hearted attempt. by Nikhat Kazmi, Disabling it will result in some disabled or missing features. This. ...The story is dealt in an unusual way, something unique but feeble... Not the most shocking thriller of the year. I have sure heard of Abbas-Mustan duo but got a chance to see their movie in Naqaab. Akshaye Khanna steals the show, he's outstanding, mindblowing, terrific, fantastic, first-rate, brilliant and superb! Last but not the least, why was Sophie the chosen one? Naqaab stars Bobby Deol, Akshaye Khanna and Sophie in the lead. FAQ
With Bobby Deol, Akshaye Khanna, Urvashi Sharma, Vikas Kalantri. Visions and reality, mystery and truth collide in this gripping tale about Imran (Rishi Kapoor), a photographer who comes upon an enigmatic singing woman who, when approached, vanishes. A sorry thriller is further reminder of Akshaye Khanna’s strange passion for projects that aren’t worth his time or ours. In broad daylight, Sophie hears a sound. Instead the plot gradually thickens with every new scene and the entrance of each new revelation makes the viewer actually use their minds instead of wanting to just get the movie over with. And thus no time is wasted on character development, detailing or consistency. How else do you explain the horrifying clothes that she's draped most of the actors in—red lace gloves for the leading lady, pink satin shirt with a matching pink waistcoat for Bobby, and double-layered clothes for Akshaye. Although they are inspired from Hollywood movies but their films are better than the original which are: 'Naqaab' which comes from the stable of the director duo Abbas-Mustan is a watchable movie! It's not just the plot and the premise of that film that's been borrowed, even dialogues from that film have been directly translated into Hindi and shamelessly used. ...Major loopholes in the film really make this a sub-standard and shoddy work of filmmaking.... They are one of my favourite directors; I loved their films ever since I seen Baazigar. : How come Sophie doesn't suspect anything when she sees so many strangers at the wedding. There's little one can say about the three actors in this film, they perform adequately but fail to make much of an impression and it's hardly their fault given the kind of material they're working with. Abbas-Mustan, who have introduced bold concepts of wife-swapping, surrogate mother and sexual harassment to Indian cinema, true to their unique style of storytelling, try something different yet again. It is a shame that another brilliant concept has been flushed down the drain because of half-baked attempts at narrating and acting. It's another thing he's a multi-millionaire with a home the size of a palace, and she works at Burger King and pays him rent to live under his roof. The horizontal and vertical transitions (wipes) between scenes that looked like the roll of a die. Now Running.com As any thriller should, the movie moves at a remarkably fast pace and before you know it you are watching the interval previews. It gets points for just being original, whether or not it is well made. It had to be some amateur writer's amateurish effort which Abbas-Mustan decided to direct. The product comes across as tacky because of the constant shuffle between comedy, unintentional comedy, a few extra-predictable scenes, and unexpected plot twists. Abbas-Mustan are known for creating good music in all of their films.
