The rating for the film on Rotten Tomatoes has risen 5% since Wednesday but is still at the very low 19%. "We needed a talented actress who commands respect and radiates sultry sexiness, and Priyanka nailed it".
"Baywatch" drew $1.25 million Wednesday night during a limited release.
Bollywood babe Priyanka Chopra is making all of us proud by doing some fabulous work in the West.
The Daily Mirror's Chris Hunneysett said "a light hearted tone, gross out gags and stream of bantz are a poor substitute for a decent joke or a smart script". So there's this one scene in the film, it's the funniest thing.
Matt Goldberg from Collider couldn't have said it better, describing PC as a real standout in 'Baywatch'.
"Chopra has fun as the baddie".
Baywatch marks Priyanka Chopra's Hollywood debut and she will be seen as the antagonist Victoria Leeds.
Anderson also makes a short cameo as herself but much of the focus of the new movie is on Johnson and former High School Musical star Efron, who plays a disgraced Olympic swimmer. Directed by Seth Gordon, Baywatch will be released on May 25 all over, while the film will be released in India on June 2 this year.
James Luxford of Radio Times went even a step further and wrote, "Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra judges the mood perfectly, playing the villain with exactly the right amount of dramatic flair ("I'm not a Bond villain. yet" she teases during an interrogation)".
