Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

The only respite in Meeruthiya Gangsters is the sly humour writer-director Zeishan Quadri laces his lines with. Barring that, there is hardly a show of his inspired writing. A bunch of dreamy-eyed local goons creating havoc – is a story we’ve often explored on

The best thing about this film is that it doesn’t attempt to please. It takes a while for the story about six aimless and living-precariously-in-the-moment young criminals (Jaideep Ahlawat, Aakash Dahiya, Vansh Bharadwaj, Chandrachur Rai, Shadab Kamal, Jatin Sarna) to grow on

India Today:

Meeruthiya Gangsters is a decent attempt from a debutant director, says Nishi Tiwari. Zeishan Qadri, who was born and raised in the Wasseypur town of Jharkhand’s Dhanbad district, was put on the Bollywood map after he co-wrote and starred in Anurag Kashyap’s ambitious crime drama Gangs of Wasseypur.

First-time director Zeishan Quadri is like a small boy taken on a merry-go-round ride for the first time in a mela. He takes you on a royal spin, until you get a headache as the trolley man merrily pushes the cameraman round and round and round and round and round and round
