Jyoti Sharma Bawa | Hindustan Times: 3.5/5
Some may have a complaint about the languid pace of the film, but it worked for me. It lets us move into the haveli and meet its quirky characters – some of whom don’t even have dialogues but give the film its lived-in feel ... Full Review

Pallabi Dey Purkayastha | Times of India: 3.5/5
A well-crafted satire that evokes a riot of emotions ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2.5/5
The problem with the film is that although the characters have depth and personality, the pace is so meditative, and the plot so sparse that it’s hard to become invested in what’s going on with these folks ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 2/5
mildewed mansion drama bustles and crumbles ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3.5/5
Is Slyly Funny But Also Deeply Melancholic ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
A middling dramedy. I missed the zest, the drollness and sharpness, that Juhi Chaturvedi’s writing is so full of. Some of that edge shows up in the way the women, old and young, are etched, all happily themselves, never at a loss for words: you wish they had more to do ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 4/5
Brimming with flavour, the movie spins a gentle yarn about greedy characters ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5
With the actors giving the film their all, Amitabh Bachchan's wizened, curmudgeonly act is the main propellant ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5
GULABO SITABO is a decent entertainer for home viewing. Despite the lack of humour and an average script, the film works majorly because of the performances, the Lucknow setting and the twist in the end ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3/5
Shoojit Sircar and Juhi Chaturvedi will capture you in the haveli for 120 minutes and make you watch the drama unfold ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5
Gulabo Sitabo is a slow burn — like October — despite its sense of humour, mischievous characters and the tongue firmly placed in its cheek ... Full Review

Nairita Mukherjee | India Today: 3.5/5
Amitabh Bachchan outdoes Ayushmann Khurrana, but the latter holds his ground. It works in Shoojit's favour that this film renders itself beautifully to small-screen viewing ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 3.5/5
'Gulabo Sitabo' is both a melancholic lament for and a biting satire on Lucknow and its people. A film in which language reigns supreme ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3.5/5
The course of its parable doesn't always run smooth, but the aftermath of sadness it leaves behind comes from a place of truth ... Full Review

Aishwarya Vasudevan | DNAIndia: 3/5
Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana make lockdown slight-more entertaining and not in a way anyone would expect! ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 3.5/5
‘Gulabo Sitabo’ is a loving look at a disappearing world ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
The tough-love narrative keeps its characters and larger themes at arm’s length and, in the process, doesn’t allow for Mirza’s campaign to grow into anything bigger than an old man’s folly ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 2/5
Gulabo Sitabo is, without doubt, the least accomplished of director Shoojit Sircar's films ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5
Our only complaint is that Amitabh Bachchan has been put under too much of a get-up. But such is his calibre as an actor that after a while, you forget the beard and the prosthetics. Mirza’s quirks grow on you ... Full Review

Sonal Pandya | Cinestaan: 3/5
Amusing, biting tale of greed getting the better of you ... Full Review

Shalu Singh | India TV: 3.5/5
An easy-breezy film by Shoojit Sircar with performances extraordinaire ... Full Review

Madhavi Pothukuchi | The Print: 2.5/5
Shoojit Sircar’s film, is amusing and well shot, but a slow pace and stretched-out writing threaten to bore ... Full Review

Priyanka Bhadani | The Week: 3.5/5
Amitabh-Ayushmann starrer keeps you smiling ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 3/5
'Gulabo Sitabo' Drifts Along, Picking Up Some Rhythm Only Towards the End. The supporting actors lend life to a film whose leads are listless and limited ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 2.5/5
Despite Quirky Characters ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ Falters in Parts ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WION: 3.5/5
Amitabh Bachchan gives a master class in acting, Ayushmann holds his own ... Full Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Gulf News: 3/5
While you may fidget in the initial portions, the movie gains momentum in the second hour and they seal with the deal with a cracking climax ... Full Review

Ambica Sachin | Khaleej Times: 3.5/5
A languid and sweet ode to an old way of life ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 2/5
All in all, a colossal damp squib, “Gulabo Sitabo” can be easily sidelined. Far better, indeed, to revisit Sircar’s “Piku” if one wants a comedy that is also going somewhere while giving key messages ... Full Review

Vaibhavi V Risbood | PinkVilla: 2.5/5
Gulabo Sitabo drags in parts and is only salvaged by the merit of the director to keep it under two hours ... Full Review

Manish Batavia | Spotboye: 3/5
In a nutshell, 2 actors, 1 writer and 1 director, all recipients of National Film Award have dished out excellent performances and are ready to take you on a 'not so nawabi' joy ride ... Full Review

Giridhar Jha | Outlook India: 2.5/5
Gulabo Sitabo A Letdown From Vicky Donor, Piku Team Despite Big B's Sterling Act ... Full Review
