Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times
Kangana Ranaut touches your heart in this emotional roller-coaster. This wholesome family film is a must watch for the way it is told, for being real and for the emotional chord it strikes with you from the very beginning ... Full Review

Sreeparna Sengupta | Times of India: 4/5
The humor and emotionally charged moments are deliciously balanced and the outcome is motivating and exhilarating. This ode to motherhood and chasing one’s dreams is a must watch ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5
That Jaya Nigam, played with absolute conviction by Kangana Ranuat, dares to dream of a past life where she was in the spotlight, is a straight-off win, subject-wise ... Full Review

IANS | The New Indian Express: 2/5
Kangana and cast shine in feel-good flick. What comes across as a downer of sorts is the film's lack of genuine 'panga' moments, despite the realism that sustains its plot and characters ... Full Review

Priyanka Sinha Jha | News18: 3.5/5
Kangana Ranaut gets out of her comfort zone in director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Panga and delivers a stunning performance. Panga, a colloquial Hindi term for tussle deserves a big pat on the back for once again putting the spotlight on the Indian woman’s existential crisis, a charming addition to the new emerging collection of compelling cinema about Indian women ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5
The role fits Kangana Ranaut to absolute perfection and there isn't a single false note in her performance. The intelligently scripted, deftly directed and well-acted sports drama is peopled by characters who are easy to relate to ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5
PANGA is a progressive and touching sports drama that works thanks to its plot, execution, some fine moments and of course the superlative performance of Kangana Ranaut ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 3.5/5
HEARTWARMING. A content-driven film that’s rich in merits... Emotional, progressive, entertaining... Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s best work to date... Kangana is flawless, an award-worthy act... Richa, Jassie, Yagya Bhasin excel ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3/5
Pint-sized Yagya Bhasin delivers a monumental performance, subduing the drama, yet another relatable character nailed by Kangana ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu
Kangana Ranaut's latest is all heart and charm, with an emotional wallop at the end. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari directorial is about how love, marriage and children need not come in the way of a sportswoman’s success, but what sets it refreshingly apart is a wonderful sense of humour ... Full Review

The Tribune: 3/5
Panga may not be a deep enough exploration of a woman’s mind but it is definitely a sparingly executed and amusing one! ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3.5/5
Panga's slice of life makes up for in its gentle depiction of everyday struggles and pleasantries, lending it a consistently warm fuzzy feeling. What lingers on are the little, lovely details in Iyer Tiwari and co-writer Nikhil Mehrotra's portrayal of Jaya's experiences ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.75/5
Panga is charming and in the first half very credible, but its charm also camouflages the warts in the world women face every day. ... Full Review

Aishwarya Vasudevan | DNAIndia: 3.5/5
This 'Panga' needs to be taken and to be loved! The screenplay of the film is the hero and we are back with 'content is the king' era ... Full Review

India Today: 3.5/5
Panga is a good reminder that we all matter, individually, in our own way, in our own stories. It's a reminder to hold on to that little ball of confidence in you. And it's a reminder that Kangana doesn’t need to actually take panga, she can simply make one ... Full Review

Angel Rani | Deccan Herald: 3.5/5
There is no overt patriotism or over-the-top reactions from the Indian kabaddi team either. It’s a natural show all the way. A domestic bliss and an achiever mom sure make for an overwhelming partnership. And a tricolour at the end seals the deal ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion
Potent Messaging Delivered With Humor And Lightness. Panga creates a lived-in world with characters who have depth and personality ... Full Review

Rochell Pereira | Book My Show
A gentle yet powerful ode to motherhood and second chances ... Full Review

Live Hindustan: 3/5
यह फिल्म प्रेमचंद के कथा संसार की अनुभूति कराती है, जिसमें सिर्फ कुरूप यथार्थ ही नहीं है, बल्कि उस यथार्थ को बदलने का आदर्श समाधान भी है। यह एक जरूर देखने लायक फिल्म है। ... Full Review

Jagran: 4/5
विचार बहुत बड़ा है, मगर ये उम्मीद तो की ही जा सकती है। इसीलिए पंगा ना सिर्फ एक मनोरंजक फ़िल्म है। साथ ही प्रेरणादाई भी। इसे ज़रूर देखा जाना चाहिए। ... Full Review

Ravi Buleiy | Amar Ujala: 3.5/5
नितेश तिवारी, निखिल मल्होत्रा और खुद अश्विनी ने फिल्म पंगा को जैसा लिखा, वैसा ही अश्विनी ने इसे फिल्माने में कामयाबी पाई। हर छोटे बड़े किरदार को अपनी प्रतिभा दिखाने का मौका अश्विनी ने इस फिल्म में दिया है। ... Full Review

Gaurang Chauhan | Zoom TV: 4/5
Panga is an uplifting entertainer with top performances by the whole cast led by the outstanding Kangana Ranaut. Watch it ... Full Review

Sonal Gera | India TV: 3.5/5
An ode by a woman, to the women. Watch 'Panga' for Ashwini Iyer Tiwari's brilliance, another superlative performance by Kangana Ranaut, Jassie Gill's endearing smile, Richa Chadha's spark, and just because you should. And all you ladies out there, if life gives you a second chance, go take the 'panga'. YOU ARE WORTH IT ... Full Review

Prateek Sur | Bollywood Bubble: 3.5/5
Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s presentation is a sweet and memorable tale which should be watched over and over by the people of our Indian patriarchal society. Despite the flaws, the film manages to entertain and keep you hooked till the end. Needless to say, it’s a MUST WATCH. I am going with three and a half stars for ‘Panga’ ... Full Review

Urmimala Banerjee | Bollywood Life: 3.5/5
Panga addresses all issues right from how motherhood is a reason of major conflict for a mother to how society views the productivity of moms at the workplace. In a subtle way, it sends all the right messages. Panga is a heart-warming film in all respects ... Full Review

Newsd: 4/5
Panga is an ode to endless hours of work that mothers put behind their families and at the same time urges them to never give up on their dreams and to take that second chance. No doubt it is a well-crafted film which becomes a must-watch for everyone this weekend ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 3.5/5
So just like a thinking member of a lovable good family, we let go the flaws and appreciate the ‘goodness’ of something done by our near and dear ones, PANGA is mast, must for every mother, son and father for its sheer positivity and feeling of togetherness in the end that inspires us to follow our passion and never forget our dreams ... Full Review

SantaBanta: 4/5
It is a fun, cheering and inspiring journey of a woman who doesn't give up and takes a second chance, takes a 'Panga' as it is never too late to change 'I could have been' to 'I am'. Must watch! ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post
Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s 'Panga' is a quiet triumph, a film that gently explores the guilt women are made to feel for pursuing their dreams and why they should go ahead nonetheless ... Full Review

Madhavi Pothukuchi | The Print
Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s film will lift your heart and make you laugh. A heartwarming tale of sacrifice and overcoming the odds, Kangana Ranaut-starrer Panga only slightly misses the mark by not pushing hard enough ... Full Review

Priyanka Bhadani | The Week: 3.5/5
Kangana is perfect in a realistic film about chasing your dreams. The film is also about the strength that comes from female camaraderie ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire
With Badly Executed Good Intentions, 'Panga' Fails to Impress. The real problem with the Kangana Ranaut-starrer is its painful subservience to predictability and cliches ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 4/5
Nuanced Screenplay, Performances Make ‘Panga’ a Winner. Panga isn’t limited to a tussle in a kabaddi match, though those sequences are brilliantly shot. It’s about not letting life get the better of you . Even at the end it isn’t a carefully curated victory lap that the film offers ... Full Review

Ambica Sachin | Khaleej Times: 3.5/5
Kangana Ranaut leads with the heart. Watch 'Panga' if you enjoy slice-of-life movies with a dash of everyday humour thrown in ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 5/5
Every frame of the film, every line, every dynamic shows the masterly hand of Ashwiny, and here’s one of those very rare filmmakers in today’s times with an ascending graph with every film ... Full Review

Panga works for its performances, it's an inspiring story and its detailed screenplay. But above all its Ashwini Iyer Tiwari's ode to mothers- the unsung heroes of our lives and that should be a good enough reason to watch the film ... Full Review

Vaibhavi V Risbood | PinkVilla: 3.5/5
Kangana Ranaut enlivens Ashwini Iyer Tiwari's writing in this soul stirring film. It’s the story that reminds you that it’s never too late to fulfil your inner desires ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre
Panga works better as an ode to the self-sufficiency of the sisterhood. On more than one occasion, the movie hints that it’s really the selfless sacrifices of women that allow another woman the luxury to be selfish ... Full Review

Pramit Chatterjee | Mashable: 4/5
Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari strikes a beautiful balance between exploring the challenges that come with playing a game like Kabaddi and the person facing those challenges on and off the mat in ‘Panga’. It features Kangana Ranaut’s best performance yet and an instantly lovable supporting cast. The writing by Ashwiny, Nikhil Mehrotra, and Nitesh Tiwari is solid and forgivable even when it is wonky ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint
Tiwari and co-writer Nikhil Mehrohtra carefully unpeel the various levels of social indoctrination that someone like Jaya must overcome before they can follow their dreams, not only practical problems (Prashant is inept around the house) but her own guilt at what in her mind amounts to abandoning her child ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 3.5/5
The little touches win over the big moment. Panga seems to be saying that behind every successful woman is a man telling her she is right. A less sentimental and more hard-headed movie might have allowed Jaya to go it alone ... Full Review
