Critical Reception[edit]

Ron Ahluwalia from Planet Bollywood gave the film 2.5/10 and stated "Burying your money in the ground would be wiser than even renting a movie like Paisa Vasool. It's just that simple: don't watch it!"[1]

Apunkachoice gave the film 3/5 stating 'at times the humor in the film is too predictable and there are other sequences that are simply puerile. Even the two leading characters Baby and Maria are made to overreact in many situations'.[2]

Soundtrack[edit]

Paisa Vasool
Soundtrack album by Bapi-Tutul
Released November 2003
Genre Hindi film soundtrack

Ron Ahluwalia from Planet Bollywood gave the soundtrack 4/10 and chose 'Yaadon Mein' as his favorite song stating 'It’s a shame that Manisha was not able to get more songs like Yaadon Mein out of her composers and lyricist. This soundtrack should be looked upon as a pathetic follow-up by Bapi-Tutul on their work in Bhoot. In the end, one beautiful song cannot save a host of repulsive songs. Forget that Paisa Vasool ever had a soundtrack!'[3]

Satyajit from Smashhits.com called the soundtrack 'a complete washout' stating that the soundtrack is 'rather a rehashed version of many remix albums'.[4]
