Hilarious movie , great actors, Good message!
akz-632612 November 2019
Great story line. Got some great comedy with non veg jokes. Script could have been better. Loved the message of entrepreneurship. Much better than crappy Housefull 4. DREAM GIRL was another good one. Good acting by Boman Irani, Rajkumar Rao & Paresh rawal!

A must watch
rishitdutta29 October 2019
A movie that moves you, if I may state a few words. It will strike as a cheap comedy at first, one based in China, but it ends up being far more than that. It is rather an attempt to put forward the situation quite synonymous to the typical Indian crowd, it takes the courage to do what others may despise and comes across beautifully. And to add to that, Rajkumar Rao's scintillating performance with Boman Irani's hilarious quirks. It is for sure a must watch, if you are willing to undermine a few tiny blunders.

Fatuous!

#FinalVerdict

The movie suffers from a weak script & vacuous screenplay which will be a huge turnoff even for its target audience. The masses will be disappointed and box office prospects will also be a grim disappointment. Director Mikhil Musale is making his Bollywood directorial debut with Made In China & even though one is mentally prepared for the kind of adult humour that the film promises to offer, still, one feels let down because it goes extremely overboard & directionless. Add to that, the puerile story (Mikhil Musale, Parinda Joshi & Karan Vyas, with Niren Bhatt's additional screenplay) only makes the film cringeworthy. The film is nothing but an onscreen amalgamation of one-liners & double entendres. Replete with outrageous dialogues (Niren Bhatt & Karan Vyas), Made In China hinges on a wafer-thin plot, relies largely on jokes & gags which appear funny at times but cheap in the overall perspective and turns into a serious letdown.

Though there are instances where you feel like director Mikhil Musale has somehow managed (read 'struggled') to maintain the film's proceedings, they are few and far between. What Made In China really needed was a good dose of the magic soup itself.

While the music (Sachin-Jigar) is nothing to write about, it remains an average fair. The background score (Sachin-Jigar) helps lift a few moments but is not enough. The editing (Manan Ashwin Mehta) too, is plain average. As for the performances, Rajkummar Rao stands out with a magnificent act. The actor hasn't let the shimmer of his success taint his acting. Although this is Mouni Roy's second Bollywood film, she owns every bit of the screen time she gets. Amyra Dastur, Paresh Rawal, Gajraj RaO and Sumeet Vyas also keep you interested in them with their limited screen time. Boman Irani, however, is the one who takes the cake in Made In China. His performance dwarfs everything and everyone else on screen.

To sum up, Made In China carries the message of normalizing conversations around sex, exposing the taboo & hypocrisy surrounding it, which is commendable but it also gets cringeworthy. A wise-cracking mentor tells the protagonist - "the customer is a ch***ya (the unmentionable isn't uttered, the audience is left to read the lips of the two actors) - and you wonder if the makers of this film believe in that axiom themselves. Wait for it to come on the streaming platform. Don't watch it in theatres!

This movie would have been a masterpiece but thanks to the poor execution and director for portraying it in a very immature way .

Movie with awesome concept but bad screenplay.
asifthevamp25 October 2019
Made In China is symptomatic of what's often happening in Bollywood right now. They have a concept driven by content that's high on blending entertainment and message, and the idea is original, too. Acting bt the Lead Actor was good but Actress again disappointed me.It lacks a good EXECUTION to make a MARK. I enjoyed it by the way because of its CONTENT . 7/10 my rating !

✨Good movie with strong message ✨
bhumilpalita28 October 2019
Great film with strong content and social message. The story is based on the major issue of our society. It takes time to create a story in the first half. But in the second half you will easily get connected. Rajkumar Rao plays the Gujarati character very well. Boman Irani's character was very energetic and it seems natural for some time. Paresh Rawal's cameo was awesome. In the climax you will be really surprised and appreciate the character. Mouni Roy's screenplay was short but he played it well. The songs are average. The background music sounded weak in some scenes and so you can get bored especially in the first half. Everything else is good. This film could have been made more interesting and impressive.

Made In China Review
Magow-Intermean28 October 2019
Warning: Spoilers
Raghuvir Mehta is a down-on-his-luck entrepreneur, who fails at every new business venture he sets up. But a trip to China promises to change that and Raghu bites the bait. But soon as a result of this, he finds himself as a prime suspect in the murder of a Chinese General, in India. At first go, Made in China starts off on a sure footing as it sets itself up as a crime investigative story. A Chinese General is found dead after he helps himself to a cup of Chinese 'Magic Soup'. The investigators believe that an ingredient found in the soup, which is derived from tigers, is the reason behind the General's death. The owner of the soup company, Raghuvir and those who worked with him are summoned to get to the bottom of this mystery. And from here on, the film goes into a long flashback mode. In fact, so long, that you may not be blamed if you forget mid-way that this was all being related to uncover the story behind the death. After a series of failed businesses, Raghuvir aka Raghu (Rajkummar Rao) finally hits the jackpot as an underground supplier of a potent Chinese aphrodisiac. Though his journey to this successful stage of his life is an amalgamation of interesting anecdotes and people. There is his unplanned meeting with a potential invester, Tanmay Shah (Paresh Rawal); his daily dose of motivational mantras from the youtube videos of Mr.Chopra (Gajraj Rao), who spouts gems like, "Dimag ideas ka gamla hain," ; his loving relationship with his wife, Rukmini (Mouni Roy), who he wants to see happy at any cost; his condescending rich uncle Mota Papa and cousin, Dhanraj (Sumeet Vyas), and finally, his most lucrative collaboration with Dr.Vardhi (Boman Irani), a 70 year old sexologist. Rajkummar Rao is endearing, sincere and heartfelt as the bumbling, under confident Raghu, who at the same time is also passionate enough to follow his calling, no matter how many times he fails. Boman Irani is a delight to watch as he gives an impassioned performance as Dr.Vardhi. Gajraj Rao, Paresh Rawal, Sumeet Vyas are in fine form. Mouni Roy as Rukmini puts in a decent effort. The setting and mileu of Ahmedabad is captured well. However, where Made in China falters is the weak storyline with digressions in the narrative and portions that feel like a stretch. There are some sparks of humor and a few crude jokes thrown in here and there. At the heart of it, Made in China carries the message of normalizing conversations around sex and exposing the taboo and hypocrisy surrounding it, which is a commendable effort but it also does get preachy. Overall, this one is Rajkummar Rao's film all the way and worth a watch to savor his acting prowess.

A film made to change the mentality of Indian people
aviksahathecricketlover26 October 2019
A very strong approach to the people of our country with 1.32 billion population but still think the matter 'sex' is 'ashlil'. Director, script writer have done a wonderful job in making this film more and more appealing to audience. The story itself doesn't turn u on but the moral definately does.

Acting- Rajkumar Rao was undoubtedly the best factor about the movie. Mouni Roy didn't had so much to do with the film other than dancing which made the film better in terms of acting. The supporting actors namely Booman Irani and Rameesh Rawal was excellent.

Story- Expected more from the story but turned out to be a simple storyline. It's basically based on a novel so nothing with the direction itself. But the moral was 👍👍👍👍

If Bollywood wants to make film on Sex Education factor to make children aware of it rather than making it a taboo, they should go with films of this category rather than films like 'Khandaani Safakhana'.

A roller coaster worth riding!
thatsme201925 October 2019
This is one story that appeals for its sheer relativity. Having grown up in the western part of India, specifically in Ahmedabad, I can understand where Raghu comes from...and indeed where he is going. Amdavadis are pretty much tigers when it comes to business....even the most docile amongst them turning into veritable wild animals. And yes they are super adventurous. The trailer is a bit misleading. It's not a sex comedy. It's a sensible drama with liberal doses of entertainment. The cast is in top form. It's a roller coaster worth riding. Watch it.

Very weak story make this film boring and worst.
srivastava-ritesh5525 October 2019
Clubbing the unrelated themes of sex and entrepreneurship could have been a sure shot USP if the writing was sharper, especially in the first half. The film wastes too much time before the post-interval hour finally salvages audience interest in what's going on.

Light Hearted Box of Hopes, Edutainment and Fun - only for above 18 years ;)
Mitesh_Gavand26 October 2019
Ticking most of the boxes of an Edutainment-Commercial movie during the festive season. ( Trying to keep the review spoiler free but assuring the hints )

Review of the Movie: Blending the two segments of Business/Entrepreneurial Spirit and Awareness on socially relevant challenges of our country, "Made in China" attempts to deliver a complete package and almost justifies it.

This movie takes it's audience on an unusal way of story-telling (few hops here and there during the movie). Nevertheless, the entire movie will keep you engaged with it's purpose and perfect amount of entertainment.

From Business perspective touched upon in the movie, it's quite creatively handled by the entire team ( Paresh Rawal stands-out in this aspect and audience will surely remember his dialogues )

From Awareness perspective, the movie seems to intend their message for the adults. The movie handles the social challenge with appropriate amount of analogies without becoming too aggressive or repeatative about it. Surely, the commercial-entertainment part is handled. This movie focuses more on making all the adults getting more comfortable about expressing and asking for help, thus the movie attempts to reduce the barriers for communication in this aspect. ( Not a movie to be watched with children because there are efforts made to make them aware already, but the society is equally responsible to become aware and comfortable).

Definitely, worth a watch, but if you like it then go ahead and watch it again ;)

Some Techincal Pointers (after watching some expert critics and reviewing not giving fair review about the movie) (Out of 5):

Story/Screenplay: 4 (Appropriate for the target audience, Pay attention to what's going on in the background macthes the main context very well)

Acting: 4 ( Every Character does their part well, yes there are stand out performers and few averages as well)

Educationl / SocialMessage / Entertainment: 5 (No problem here)

Music: 3.5 (Songs are good and appealling but their flow could have been integrated in a better way with the story)

Overall: 4 ( Do watch the movie )

Not very entertaining
gudiya6828 October 2019
Made in China is a 1 time watch film. Not enough entertainment plus a very weak script. I don't know why Rajkummar Rao is wasting his time and talent on films like this. Choppy script and unrealistic. Too many plot holes. There's a message and I wholeheartedly agree that we need to start the conversation and not be ashamed to. Still, that being said there's no way I would take my children to watch this one.

Average movie
sunildaswaney-6364225 October 2019
"Made in China"started on a certain premise which was very interesting,but for some strange reason was not worked on at all. As a matter of fact,the movie took another turn,thus pushing that premise in the background.The movie was based primarily on Raj Kumar Rao who as always did a very good job with the others putting in average to competent performances. As usual the songs were totally unnecessary and at 2.12hrs it was definitely too long by about 20 minutes.After the interval the film really began to drag and as a result the quality of same fell even further. At best it's an average picture 5/10

Warning: Spoilers
Raghuvir Mehta(Rajkumar Rao) is a down-on-his-luck entrepreneur, who fails at every new business venture he sets up.

Chinese dignitary attending a 'Glorious Gujarat' summit in Ahmedabad drinks a sex potion n He drops dead. A diplomatic crisis looms n Story starts.

But a trip to China seems a good luck for rao. But soon as a result of this, he finds himself as a prime suspect in the murder of a Chinese General, in India.
