Jyoti Sharma Bawa | Hindustan Times: 2.5/5
Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor film chooses a serious subject but is let down by its clunky execution ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 2.5/5
With a tighter runtime and more focus on the crux of the story, this social drama had the potential to shine bright ... Full Review

Nandan Kini | Mumbai Mirror: 2.5/5
Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a film that does seem to have its heart in the right place with the subject it wants to deal with, albeit with a mild case of cardiac arrhythmia – perhaps a little shock is in order to set its pace back in order? ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5
The Shahid Kapoor starrer is a film with good intentions. Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a hark-back to a forgotten tradition, which, at its best, gave us story and substance. Batti Gul gives us both, for most part ... Full Review

Mrinal Rajaram | The New Indian Express: 2/5
Well-intentioned but poorly executed. Neither Kapoor, despite each other’s desperate attempts to sound and act pahari, comes off even remotely real/natural ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 3/5
This is one of those mainstream movies that delivers its message coated with a thick layer of melodrama. And it works ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5
Shahid Kapoor Tries His Best In Dim, Flickering Bulb Of A Film. Shraddha Kapoor is occasionally fetching but what unfolds on the screen is precariously low on wattage ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5
BATTI GUL METER CHALU is an average, one-time watch entertainer that appeals only in parts. The film has lot of flaws and loose ends and Shahid Kapoor’s entertaining performance saves the day to an extent ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5
Too Much Of Thehra & Bal Make The Interesting Story Dull! Shahid Kapoor delivers a power-packed performance. He's just in his role from frame one and his stupendous energy is visible on screen ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
well-intentioned but artistically deadbeat and dull ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 2/5
If you really want to watch a film about how an inflated electricity bill can play havoc with the life of a common man, watch Sumitra Bhave and Sunil Sukthankar’s delightful “Ek Cup Chya” instead. It makes the same point in a much more subtle and effective way ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 1.5/5
No light at the end of this never-ending drab. Shahid Kapoor's comic ease and contagious energy are not enough to brighten up this dim-witted slog ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | FirstPost: 2.5/5
Shahid Kapoor is earnest, but Shree Narayan Singh's direction flickers ... Full Review

Meena Iyer | DNAIndia: 3.5/5
Watch BGMC because it throws light on the issue of electricity, which is a fundamental human right. If we sit like frogs in a well, we may never learn what ails the real India. Jaago guys, jaago ... Full Review

Suhani Singh | India Today: 1.5/5
Shahid-Shraddha film is a dull and lengthy drama ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2/5
But the solution to this problem isn’t to be found in Batti Gul Meter Chalu, which works neither as a social issue film nor a triangular romance ... Full Review

Shaheen Irani | Deccan Chronicle: 3/5
To sum it up, Shahid is the gravy of a spicy misal while Shraddha, Yami, Divyendu and other actors are just the toppings which make it delicious when added in lesser quantity ... Full Review

Letty Mariam Abraham | Mid-Day: 2.5/5
Shraddha Kapoor does little to enhance the film. Shahid Kapoor shines, but only when the second half commences. Yami Gautam as the lawyer opposing Shahid Kapoor seems inadequate ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5
All-in-all, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a film which has its heart in the right place. Better editing and a shortening of length by twenty minutes would have made the film more impactful ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 1.5/5
A Melodramatic Look At The Business Of Electricity In India. Goes to show that today’s producers don’t care for craft, as long as there’s a “message,” a digital revolution and a rousing monologue ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 2.5/5
Shahid Kapoor puts in his sincere efforts, but it's the weak direction and editing which fails to light up the film ... Full Review

Sriram Iyengar | Cinestaan: 2.5/5
Shahid Kapoor shines, but this crusader flick takes too long to switch on ... Full Review

Shalu Singh | India TV: 2/5
Shahid Kapoor starrer has heart in right place but disappoints, doesn't have an intriguing climax and is quite lengthy ... Full Review

Shreya Thakur | Republic World: 2.5/5
'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' is a refreshingly new concept brought to limelight by Shree Narayan Singh but the same, alas, fails to impress in the sheer way it has been executed ... Full Review

Economic Times: 3/5
Taut editing with a shorter runtime would have made a lasting impression. The second half of the film makes up for the initial mistakes ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 4/5
Enthrallingly Engaging, Satirically Powerful ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 2.5/5
As a creative product, it is not at all a great creation. But the intent and the performance of Shahid Kapoor makes me say that it is an average film ... Full Review

Priyanka Roy | The Telegraph India: 2/5
Many an average film has been rescued by watchable performances, but not this one. Shahid overdoes it and Shraddha fails to make a mark, while Yami has too small a role to leave an impact ... Full Review

Arnab Banerjee | Asian Age: 1.5/5
Singh allows Shahid as Sushil to drum out everyone from the courtroom, including a nondescript Mukherjee, with his one-note story ... Full Review

Kumar Shyam | The National: 2/5
No one is expecting the artist in Singh to deliver a masterpiece with every creation but the direction is very sloppy by any standard and certainly not expected from the director with some decent experience ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 2.5/5
In a crisper avatar, Batti Gul Meter Chalu might just have made for one cohesive film ... Full Review
