Nihit Bhave | Times of India: 3/5 | 6/10

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 3.5 | 7/10
Its technical design isn't gimmicky, and it doesn't indulge the unpredictability of the characters. I remember each of the locations vividly; each has a sound and anxious expression about it ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Gurgaon is dark and dystopic, and a solid, atmospheric debut. It tells us that power can never be permanent, and how the good may not always win. Uncomfortable, but true ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.5/5 | 6/10
I was gasping and willing for the characters to make different choices, to think, to be smarter. But Raman's film is not about the comfortable. It's very much about unearthing and facing the ugly truth, and that's a rather bitter pill ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: - | 7.5/10
The film left me with a feeling of overwhelming tragic waste. The conflict zones that are the family and the city of Gurgaon becomes a microcosm for depicting wastelands of all kinds-literal and metaphorical; physical, psychological and emotional ... Full Review

Rediff: 4/5 | 8/10
The film is supremely entertaining, and we may often find ourselves envying the vitality of its characters' lawlessness and also sharing their daze ... Full Review

Deccan Chronicle: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Akshay Oberoi’s Nikki Singh is like a double-edge sword. A man so desperate and disturbed that the only way he can feel he is alive is by watching someone writhing in pain. Don’t miss it ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Filmfare: 3/5 | 6/10
Shanker Raman's Gurgaon has thrills, twists and a dark storyline that can give you goosebumps. At times it's a little too slow for comfort, but even then the visual detail and visceral content of this thriller make it a very enriching experience ... Full Review

Economic Times: 3/5 | 5.5/10
What Gurgaon lacks is a moving experience. We get a glimpse of reality, but it is through stock emotions. In a sense, it is a manufactured reality, devoid of the emotion that usually has you invested in a film's characters ... Full Review

Nettv4u: 3/5 | 6/10
With not so popular star cast and a medium budget, Shanker had given a good film in his style. Gurgaon, the thriller movie is worth watching! ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: - | 7/10
This is a chilling experience – definitely not for the faint hearted! ... Full Review

Now Running: 4/5 | 8/10
Gurgaon is a powerful film that pushes us into a dark cruel world. When we emerge, shocked by the violence, you realise that you are equally primitive when you want to clap after the last gun is fired. The film has been shot beautifully and supported by fantastic performances ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 2/5 | 5/10
Uneven but compelling. What promised to be another Titli is brought down by its own endless array of content ... Full Review

Bollywood Bubble: 3/5 | 6/10
‘Gurgaon’ is very well intended film. If the pace of the movie was a bit fast, then this would have surely been one of the best noir thrillers. It’s an intense film for very niche audiences ... Full Review
