Fox critic reviews & ratings

 

Making a suspense thriller is tough. To keep the audience attentive, besides keeping the viewer guessing till the end, requires complete understanding of the craft. Deepak Tijori had attempted a suspense thriller earlier [most storytellers have a penchant for this genre] and FOX, a complex theme, is more of a challenge for him. So, does Tijori get it right? Initially, yes. But Tijori loses it all towards the post-interval portions. The culmination is the thorn in the flesh.more

What do you do when you see a fox in a jungle? Answer: Run away. What do you do when you see Deepak Tijori's new film Fox -- starring Sunny Deol, Arjun Rampal, Sagarika Ghatge and Udita Goswami - in theatre hoardings? Answer: Run away faster.more

When a film is written and directed by Deepak Tijori, you can expect it to be bad, or very bad. Well, this one is just bad, so that’s good I guess. Fox is the story of advocate Arjun Kapoor (Arjun Rampal), a successful lawyer, whose lawyer-girlfriend Sagarika Ghatge, calls him advocate Arjun Kapoor, and whose nameplate also reads ‘Adv Arjun Kapoor’, just in case we miss the point that he is an advocate.more

Arjun (Rampal), a successful criminal lawyer develops a conscience. He realises how silly he has been after a few years and gives up the practice altogether. He moves to Goa. Once there, he becomes pally with an old geezer who gives him a manuscript he wants published. The man dies without it seeing the light of day. Arjun's still a bit unscrupulous, so he gets the book published under his name. Who'd have known it! The book turns out to be a bestseller.more
