At the end Bumboo lives up to its name and ensures that it is a pain in your ....!
Bollywood Hungama - Taran Adarsh's Rating:
Bumboo tries too hard to be funny and that's why it misfires. Besides, a weak script, abrupt conclusion and bizarre characters only go against it!
CNN IBN - Rohit Vats' Rating: 1.5
Bumboo is a film made with good intentions but somehow the makers couldn't transform the original idea onto the celluloid. You can always watch 'Bumboo' to support the storytellers who dare to go against the established market norms.
Glamsham - Martin D'Souza's Rating: 1.5
Bumboo in Mumbaiya lingo is what happens when you get on the wrong side of the law. If you are willing to get Bumbooed, do walk right in!

In the end, the narrator, Sanjay Mishra, says if you like the film, spread the word, but if you don’t, still do because “ek bumboo lagaane ka haq aapko bhi hai.” The latter suits this situation more.

In the movie, ‘Bumboo’ signifies troubled waters (vaat lagna) and if you wish to be away from such an experience, this movie is strictly prohibited. If you are still looking for a reason to buy a ticket then talented actors like Sharat Saxena, Sanjay Mishra and Kavin Dave trying their best to make you laugh, could be one possible reason to give it a try.
