Namaste England 2018 info:-
Namaste England 2018 a sequel to Namastey London? Definitely not. Is it similar to the 2007 film in any way? Titbits. The basics, like a Punjabi boy going all the way to London (even if illegally) just to win his love back or giving a monologue on how great his homeland is, are a pale reminder of the decade-old hit Namastey London starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif.
But is it as entertaining as Namastey London? Not at all. Vipul Amritlal Shah’s 2007 film had Arjun Singh (Akshay Kumar) winning the love of Jasmeet (Katrina Kaif); the second instalment has Jasmeet (Parineeti Chopra) and Param Singh (Arjun Kapoor), madly in love with each other, trying to fight a minor glitch in their love story.
Jasmeet in Namaste England has a burning desire to work as a jewellery designer, and London seems to be her only ticket to freedom after her dadaji (grandfather) blatantly refuses to let her work. According to him, a woman’s only work is to bear children.
(No, this isn’t the only mind-numbing part of this 135-minute yawn fest. Shah charges at you with an ammunition of boredom in terms of a sketchy plotline, bad acting, lazy script, silly dialogues and a sleep-inducing love story with almost zero chemistry.

Namaste England 2018 Critical response:-
The film received mostly negative reviews from critics; out of 16 reviews, only 4 received equal to or more than a 2-star rating. Zee News and The Statesman, both posting the same IANS review, gave the film 4 out of 5 stars, saying that the film “has a pure heart,” and that “the cast performs with sincerity that sometimes gets stagey.
While Arjun and Parineeti look comfortable in each other`s company, some of their romantic moments together are done with the over-cute impishness that seems way out of line.
” The reviewer also noted that most of the secondary characters seem more entertaining than the leads: “Aditya Seal as Parineeti`s trophy-husband succeeds in making his character of a spoilt NRI brat anything but a jerk…Seal does well for himself.”
The film is beautifully shot by Yiannis Manolopoulos, and that “While the narrative serenades the effervescent mood, a serious tone is allowed to creep in with a statement on the issue of illegal migrants in Europe. Urvi Parikh of Rediff.com gave the film 2.5 out of 5 stars, and says that the film is “all things that the Akshay Kumar-Katrina Kaif starrer Namastey London was not.”
She notes that “Vipul Shah fails to give us a crisp storyline, hard-hitting dialogues and memorable punch lines.” She notes that the movie tries to deal with women’s empowerment, but “the depiction is so wrong that at the end of it, you only feel sorry for the crew.”
She praised actress Mallika Dua and actor Aditya Seal, noting that they do a fairly good job with the material they are given. But she also noted that the film “drags after a point. You neither sympathise with the actors nor empathise with them.
