Murder Mubarak (Review) – Disappointing and Dull Thriller

Murder Mubarak is a Hindi-language mystery thriller movie based on the novel Club You To Death written by Anuja Chauhan. The movie is directed by Homi Adajania. It features an ensemble cast, including Pankaj Tripathi, Sara Ali Khan, Vijay Varma, Dimple Kapadia, Karisma Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Tisca Chopra, Suhail Nayyar.


Murder Mubarak arrives with a premising ripe for intrigue and suspense. But unfortunately falls flat soo, failing to capitalise on its potential. The gripping murder mystery turns into a predictable slog. Storytelling marred with straightforward style that allows the audience to pinpoint the murderer far too early due to the narrative.

Ordinary plot, ordinary dialogues, beaten to death characters who trying to be funny. It was everything else but not looking funny. The ensemble of bollywood socialites playing socialites, confuse storytelling not sure whether they want a comedy, suspense, satire or what… It’s just a typical try of getting more crowd/space on Netflix. India pulps fiction and try to sell it by putting popular bollywood actors and actresses. Only grace saving was Pankaj Tripathi but his dialogues also went bad.

The editing does the film no favours. Instead of creating a tightly attentive narrative that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, the movie meanders, stretching thin material over an unnecessarily runtime extension. This pacing issue exacerbates the predictability Murder Mubarak. The viewing experience was tedious rather than thrilling.


One of the major shortcomings of movie lies in its screenplay and character development. The story looks disconnected, with poorly defined characters and subplots. It fail to contribute meaningful content to the overall narrative. Unfortunately, Murder Mubarak falls short of delivering a compelling murder mystery.

In conclusion, Murder Mubarak is a forgettable addition to the mystery thriller genre. It lacks in delivering gripping cinematic experience that viewers crave for. Save yourself the disappointment and seek out a more engaging film to satisfy your craving for mystery and intrigue.
