Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times: 3/5
The climax of John Abraham’s film keeps you hooked. Thanks to a well drafted screenplay, Parmanu holds its ground towards the climax ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 3.5/5
What ‘Parmanu’ lacks in detail and authenticity, it makes up with emotions and a sense of national pride. The narrative isn’t explosive but it does have the dramatic moments to keep the viewer engaged ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
You will get the money shot of John Abraham and co. walking in slo-mo to swelling background music, enveloped in a comic book feel. You will not get crucial nuance and detail, essential requirements for a film to be to taken seriously ... Full Review

Shrishti Negi | News18: 2/5
The good part about the movie is that just like the recently released Raazi, Parmanu too doesn’t fall into the usual trappings of bashing Pakistan on screen just to make a few extra bucks at the box office ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 1.5/5
John Abraham does his best to lend some frisson to his role, but he is weighed down by a ridiculously fanciful screenplay ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 4/5
It avoids the path of being jingoistic and serves a real event adding a touch of cinematic experience. John Abraham lives this role to the fullest, offers enough nail-biting sequences which are expected from a movie of this genre ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5
Parmanu can scream 'desh' all it wants and turn up the volume as loud as it likes to make a big deal ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5
ohn Abraham thriller is reasonably effective, passably entertaining ... Full Review

Hiren Kotwani | DNAIndia: 3/5
This John Abraham Show is effective and thrilling ... Full Review

Lakshana N Palat | India Today: 2.5/5
About the acting, there is honestly not much to say. John Abraham tries his best to lend some depth to his role, but he can't make much progress with the trite screenplay ... Full Review

Mayur Sanap | Deccan Chronicle: 1.5/5
Along with implausible stuff within the manipulative plot, the movie is further marred by flimsy dialogue and sub-par performances ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5
The film does have minor flaws and loose ends but you kind of gloss over them because of its emotional impact. At the end of the day, you feel proud of the achievements of the nation’s scientists, of our army ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 2/5
Irrespective of how productive he has been, some excesses are destined to resist cultural conditioning. The spice is enjoyable, but the stomach needs to be willing ... Full Review

Aditya Shrikrishna | The New Indian Express: 1/5
An unconvincing, unexciting version of the Pokhran story. The film is rousing and entertaining, and you get your money's worth, as it gives you an insight into how India achieved becoming a global nuclear superpower ... Full Review

Kennith Rosario | The Hindu: 2/5
Billowing plume of jingoistic smoke ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 2/5
“Parmanu” could have taken a good look at the politics and repercussions of India’s nuclear tests, but who wants to do all the hard work when you can get all the applause for saying “Jai Hind” at the end of the film ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3/5
A Dumbed Down Retelling Of The 1998 Pokhran Tests. You might question the authenticity of Abhishek Sharma’s fictionalized retelling of India’s nuclear tests in Pokhran, but it delivers on drama ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | Live Mint: 2/5
This film about the Pokhran nuclear tests fails to drum up much excitement ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 2/5
To be fair to the film though, which only comes alive in the final half-hour, it doesn't exactly test your patience. That's saying a lot, even if its terribly militarised version of patriotism/jingoism isn't exactly your scene ... Full Review

Sriram Iyengar | Cinestaan: 3/5
While it might not have the same scale or impact as the tests themselves, Sharma's film manages to entertain and convince the audience of the effort and pride involved in the operation ... Full Review

Lokesh Dharmani | Masala: 3/5
Despite resorting to some very obvious tricks, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran remains noble in its intention of telling a historic tale that made every Indian proud ... Full Review

Reshu Manglik | India TV: 2/5
Watch the film only if you’re looking forward to a nail-biting thriller, which is too far-fetched and bizarre to be true ... Full Review

IANS | Financial Express: 3/5
Sincerely mounted patriotic tale; dedicated to all unsung heroes – engineers, scientists and soldiers ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 3.5/5
John Abraham in lead unites every true Indian and makes their heart feel with pride and respect and that’s the biggest triumph of this well intended movie ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 1/5
'Parmanu' Is a Nationalist Drama That Ends Like a Horror Film. Like most jingoistic dramas, the John Abraham-starrer is less about pride and more about poking fun at others ... Full Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Gulf News: 2.5/5
Contrived and superficial. John Abraham’s patriotic offering, set around India’s nuclear test, is missing in thrills ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.75/5
John Abraham's hulk act doesn’t do much for this tepid thriller. Evidently the best thing in Parmanu is its immaculate writing. So while, it essentially never rises above its flawed performances, the sheer concept and buildup of the movie is worth lauding ... Full Review

Vickey Lalwani | Spotboye: 2.5/5
Parmanu had the ingredients for an engaging film but director Abhishek Sharma has failed to utilise them. This 129-minute long narrative on nuclear blast has too many lines and scenes, which will go down with you only if you're from the military background ... Full Review

Khushboo Sharma | Peeping Moon: 4/5
Parmanu remains noble in its intention of telling a historic tale that made every Indian proud. It’s a good watch. Especially if you don’t know your history ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 3/5
Overall, the film is worth a watch for the unsung heroes of the tale ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 2.5/5
An obviously over-simplified account of an extremely engaging real-life event. The real-life bit is what keeps you glued despite tacky execution ... Full Review
