Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times: 3.5/5
A little preachy and over-dramatic towards the end, Hindi Medium strongly drives its point home. Chaudhary’s film has immense repeat value ... Full Review

Madhureeta Mukherjee | Times of India: 4/5
The last chapter (climax) is stretched and predictable, but in the end, it drives home the point, exposing the inadequacies and loopholes in our education system. This class isn’t part of the usual Bollywood curriculum, and we suggest that you sign up for it. Admissions open to all ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
As usual, it’s the marvelous Irrfan who keeps us watching. His is a fine, well-judged performance, which rises above the lines ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5
Ignore its hiccups and watch Irrfan Khan's film for the relevance of the questions it poses and the remarkable quality of the acting ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh | Bollywood Hungama: 4/5
HINDI MEDIUM looks at the workings of the education system. It is a relevant and topical film that makes you laugh and get emotional at the same time ... Full Review

Ahana Bhattacharya | Koimoi: 4/5
A Film With Which Every Indian Student & Parent Will Be Able To Relate. Hindi Medium warns you that outer polish is not enough; get your values right first! ... Full Review

Sreehari Nair | Rediff: 3/5
Hindi Medium is a fascinatingly frustrating film, it works because it manages to stretch itself beyond its scrubby elements, easy half-baked jokes, lessons about consumerism and our love for English, into a simple story about a boy who would do anything to see his girl smile ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.75/5
Irrfan, Saba's laugh-a-minute thinkfest survives its populist ending. The film’s achievement is that it tells us things we already know yet forces us to think about them, and has lots of fun while doing so ... Full Review

Samrudhi Ghosh | India Today: 3/5
Hindi Medium may use over-dramatised events to make its message hit home, but in spite of its hiccups, the film is not bogged down because of the performances and the humour ... Full Review

Rohit Bhatnagar | Deccan Chronicle: 4/5
A magic you will never forget. Many directors have tried making films on India’s education system but 'Hindi Medium' is by far the finest ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 3/5
Hindi Medium touches upon some very important issues and yet it fails to make the kind of impact that it seeks to promise. Still worth a dekho! ... Full Review

Sreeju Sudhakaran | Bollywood Life: 3.5/5
Hindi Medium may not be the best in the genre of satire, that honour still lies with the always splendid Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron. But it is a very engaging piece of cinema, that will make us laugh, cry and even question our own role in how things like basic education are getting screwed up in our society ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3/5
As you head towards the end of Irrfan Khan-starrer 'Hindi Medium', the stretches turn into slips. But then you don't mind that very much, given that the medium is the message itself. And the picture very passionately makes a point ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Filmfare: 4.5/5
This film is warm, fuzzy and yet thought provoking. It’s a film every new parent needs to watch. It’s definitely one of the best of the year ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 2.5/5
Hindi Medium is eventually another brave chase gone awry – though this time director Saket Chaudhary might have come closer to the trophy than ever before ... Full Review

Khalid Mohamed | Spotboye: 3/5
Despite Flaws, Hindi Medium Passes With Flying Colours ... Full Review

Reshu Manglik | India TV: 3.5/5
For the sake of immaculate acting skills, storyline and of course, a hard-hitting message, ‘Hindi Medium’ is a must watch. I personally wish that after watching the movie, people might stop taking English as a parameter to judge intellect. Come on, it's just a language! ... Full Review

Ravi Buleiy | Amar Ujala: 2.5/5
चौधरी ने कॉमिक अंदाज में बात की है मगर वह 'थ्री इडियट्स' जैसी तार्कितता और 'तारे जमीन पर' वाली संवेदना को नहीं छू पाते। बहुत पीछे रह जाते हैं। ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Asian Age: 3/5
Hindi Medium is a smiling but sharp moral sabak encased in a cute love story which began several years ago in Delhi ... Full Review

India Glitz: 3.5/5
Hindi Medium is a good scoring attempt which is worth watching for its theme and great performances ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 3.5/5
HINDI MEDIUM may not educate but certainly propagates the class and language divide and rightly deserves a watch by every Indian parent ... Full Review

IANS | Business Standard: 3.5/5
Strong performances led by Irfan match worthy script. Second half dips in momentum but manages to engross its audience ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 3.5/5
This Irrfan Khan Starrer Passes With Flying Colors Despite A Few Hiccups! ... Full Review

R.M. Vijaykar | India West: 3/5
Sensitive Film with Senseless Climax. Such films need an idealistic, even if part unreal, solution though some end up with cynical pessimism ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 2/5
The satire turns repetitive, and a final dramatic monologue by the Irrfan Khan character, though well delivered, tells us nothing that we do not already know on the subject. This is disappointing ... Full Review
