ok #EmraanHashmi u were only good thing about #WhyCheatIndia .. sadly the film never picks up .. its like ur car was stuck in 2nd gear throughout .. the film is more on the lines of a docudrama sadly .. #bigbigdissapointment #WhyCheatIndiaReview— RJ Karan (@RJKaran911) January 18, 2019
With no recognisable faces or majorly entertaining moments, Director Soumik Sen who previously gave us the decent #GulaabGang, doesn't impress. We deserve better as audience & Emraan as a fine actor.

Everyone who watches this film is bound to be cheated.
A very good subject, but seems disjointed & unfortunately falls apart with poor script &
Emraan Hashmi is the only silver lining in this extremely underwhelming film ⭐️⭐️ @realNipeshPatel— Rajiv Nanda (@bunny_nanda) January 18, 2019
