As the political thriller SHANGHAI released last Friday, Emraan Hashmi who was popularly touted as the 'hero of the masses' has proved his detractors wrong and walked away with stellar reviews for his performance in the film.

All praise for the star says an acclaimed critic and trade analyst, ''It's a new Emraan that you witness here in Shanghai [paunch, blackened/stained teeth], which is in sharp contrast to his on-screen romantic representation. Influenced by Dibakar's thought process, Emraan takes the plunge and wholly submits to the director's visualization. This is a defining moment in his career and I am sure, even Emraan must've rediscovered himself in this variety of film-making.''

Adds another critic, ''Emraan Hashmi steals the film as the gauche, stain-toothed pornographer with a selfless heart. It's easily the film's most winning performance, and Hashmi doesn't once miss the mark.''

Says one more critic, ''Hashmi's personification of the hoi polloi has so many facets, his character Jogi might be one of the most layered we've seen in a while. Hashmi steals the show with his stained teeth, small town mannerisms, and big heart. It's the defining performance of his career.''

''Emraan delivers a knockout punch as he masters a complicated role. From his infuriatingly goofy laugh to poor attempts at making conversation, Hashmi proves himself the best of a very fine ensemble. It's a throwaway grunt but Hashmi nails it,'' added another critic.

With biggies like Dibakar Banerjee, Karan Johar, Ekta Kapoor and Mahest Bhatt vouching for his acting prowess not to mention star pull, the actor is well on his way to join the big league of intellectual actors with his latest choice of films starting with SHANGHAI.

Playing Joginder a small time criminal, a man living on the margins of society, Emraan Hashmi even caught the industry's attention, with praise coming his way on the social media front.

Tweeted director Mahesh Bhatt, ''The rise and the rise of Emraan Hashmi. Emraan is brilliant in SHANGHAI. Even the highbrows have embraced his performance.''

''In my opinion Emraan Hashmi is the actor to look out for. There is an edge to him that makes him so special,'' mentioned ad-man, producer Pritish Nandy.
