Mid-Day:

Kitne aadmi the?…asked the iconic villain Gabbar to his shivering cronies. ‘Do sarkar’, I am tempted to tell him hoping that he takes the writer of this film, (Rajat Aroraa) and the director (Krish) into his den and gives them his dose of ‘Iski Sajaa milegi, barabbar milegi’ for attempting to taint his name…

India Today:

Gabbar Is Back is based on the done-and-dusted idea of cashing in on the good-man-fighting-against-corruption technique. The film is a remake of AR Murugadoss’ Ramanaa, and is not linked to the iconic Gabbar in any manner…

Rediff:

I haven’t seen the original South Indian versions of many of the cruelly loud movies we’re subjected to every few months, but the ones they make in Hindi cinema are so definitively STAR VEHICLES that they deserve the all-caps rebuke…

Glamsham:

There’s this constable Sadhu, whose only job is to bring samosas with extra sauce, apart from driving his boss (an oversized police officer) who mouths dialogues with an IQ of a seven-year-old…
