Nowrunning Reviews
The movie was originally called Heist and is being released in India as Bus 657. Alas, the name change does not help the story that moves from implausible to ridiculous: after robbing a casino the robbers board a bus and take people hostage. The robber with a heart of gold even gets away with it.

Jeannette Catsoulis (The New York Times)

Its cargo might just be crowdsourced cliches - the precariously pregnant woman; the weaponized good ol' boy - but Mr. Mann, jamming his camera tight against the action, gives everything a pulpy vigor that's mindlessly entertaining.  Read Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala (Livemint)

Bus 657 (titled Heist in some countries) has all the tropes of a B-grade thriller, with the anomaly of an A-list cast member-Robert De Niro.The highly improbable scenarios that follow include a plot twist as subtle as a runaway bus speeding down the freeway escorted by six police cars.   Read Full Review

Sankhayan Ghosh (The Hindu)

The film, thankfully, isn't too long. To be fair, it might even work for an audience okay with spending 1 hour 30 minutes of their life watching a 'timepass' level generic thriller. But for the more serious moviegoer, Bus 657 is one they should be happy to miss.  Read Full Review

Bus 657 Review RatingShalini Langer (The Indian Express)

There is only one vehicle of consequence in the film, though several give it chase. That is the bus, route no. 657.Shot, teargassed, spray-painted, crashed, almost burnt, bloodied. It never leaves our sight.  Read Full Review
