Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 2/5
John Abraham tries hard but this police drama isn’t arresting enough ... Full Review

Sreeparna Sengupta | Times of India: 3.5/5
Despite some of the flaws, 'Batla House' makes for a gripping, intense watch ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
John Abraham is strictly one-note, which may be how dour cops are meant to come off, but it becomes same-same in a screenplay stretched to show off a well-muscled chest ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 2.5/5
John Abraham leads a messy procedural. Though the director had to do slow-bleed the suspense, and extend the moral tossup, Batla House did not end up as that kind of film ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2.5/5
Batla House is a fascinating premise, and an especially unlikely character for John. But the film can’t decide what it wants to be – a melancholic character piece, or a thriller with chases and shootouts ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5
The film leaves you with a feeling that it had the potential to be an absolute humdinger. But stray flashes apart, the dramatized true story drifts too far from the heart of the matter without delivering the expected drama ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4.5/5
BATLA HOUSE is a powerful saga which is sure to spark off discussions and debates. The relevant plot, watertight screenplay, clapworthy moments and terrific performance by John Abraham makes BATLA HOUSE one of the finest films of the year ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5
Informs You, Compels You, Grips You In An Entertaining Way! Ritesh Shah's story is an integral part of moulding the film into a fascinating watch ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
Batla House is a needlessly convoluted and garbled interpretation of the 2008 encounter case which entirely sides with the police ... Full Review

Prasanna D Zore | Rediff: 2/5
It is only in the second half that Batla House has gripping moments ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | FirstPost: 2.5/5
John Abraham's dramatic film seems burdened by its patriotic ambitions ... Full Review

Sandeep Unnithan | India Today: 2/5
Starts on a promising premise but loses track midway and falls prey to predictability ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
I ask myself every single day – was I wrong, wonders Sanjeev Kumar. Batla House isn’t even listening to its main character ... Full Review

Varun HK | Deccan Herald: 3.5/5
A solid, well-written thriller ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3.5/5
Calm, restrained, completely undemonstrative, action super-star Abraham appears to be even channelling his inner 'Aamir Khan', if you observe him closely on occasion! Yup, quite a revelation ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5
It does suffer from sloppy writing in places but that doesn't mar its overall impact ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 2/5
The Film Makes Its Point With The Subtlety Of A Sledgehammer. Scenes that capture his emotional landscape and his post-trauma stress don’t land. It’s far more interesting to see John Abraham in hot pursuit of criminals ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 4/5
युवाओं को ये एक जज्बा देकर जाती है और उम्रदराज लोगों को देती है एक मौका देश के सबसे विवादास्पद एनकाउंटर को एक नए नजरिए से देखने का। ... Full Review

Keyur Seta | Cinestaan: 4/5
Batla House is for those who do not mind watching a massy affair created out of a real incident ... Full Review

Tripti Karki | India TV: 3.5/5
This John Abraham starrer is a gripping and intense movie, which surely makes for a good Independence Day watch. True to its genre, there is mystery and thriller, which will keep you engaged all the way ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 4/5
BATLA HOUSE is a massy/crowd pleasing distillation of Operation Batla House that manages to share some facts on heroisms, valour, faith, religion and the politics behind ... Full Review

Piyush Chopra | Now Running: 3/5
Batla House boasts of a taut first half and a confident turn by John Abraham in the lead, only to be undone by uneven writing and a wasted climax. However, if it's patriotism you're looking for this weekend at a theater near you, this Nikkhil Advani film is not the worst bet you can make ... Full Review

Sneha Bhura | The Week: 2/5
Batla House, unlike its hero/anti-hero ACP, is scared of taking a stand ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 2/5
A film dramatising a contentious real-life incident – an encounter – presents an intriguing premise, but the film tries to hammer its point home ... Full Review

IANS | Economic Times: 3.5/5
Although a tad stretched, 'Batla House' makes for a gripping watch with some edge-of-the-seat moments ... Full Review

Amandeep Narang | The Statesman: 2.5/5
The film material is well researched upon and shown, and so is how it has been shot. The pace of the film was well established and is given time to grow on the audience gradually, especially in the first half ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 3/5
Gritty, Intense Yet Garbled in Intent ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 2.5/5
On a cinematic level, there was a real opportunity to dig into the emotional space of the central character, but the movie gets reduced to a yet another patriotic drama with Nora Fatehi item number ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 3/5
It is a taut thriller, a tightly constructed movie that leaves you engaged right through ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Asian Age: 1.5/5
This could have been made slightly palatable if the film were intelligent, well-made and thrilling ... Full Review

Sonali Kokra | Arre: 3.5/5
But what the film lacks in objectivity, it makes up by being surprisingly compelling. For once, John Abraham wields his stoic demeanour to complement the mayhem unfolding on the screen, instead of distracting from it ... Full Review

Mashable: 3/5
Moreover, the film does a commendable job to showcase the trauma that cops go through to protect the law, and their plight when they have to break a few laws in the process. And this is precisely why even 11 years after the attacks, Batla House still manages to drive the central idea home ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 2/5
Accomplished police officers have to defend themselves against allegations of fake encounters–the topic as a central theme for a film is relatively fresh. However, the story doesn’t budge ahead until the last 20 minutes and thus is sadly a tiring bore ... Full Review
