Shikha Desai | Times of India: 3/5 | 6/10
Bandish Bandits is a good break from those predictable murder mysteries steeped in distrust, deceit and ample negativity. What's more? The visuals of ink-blue Jodhpur and its splendid havelis and forts are a treat to the eyes ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: - | 6/10
The conversation around the need to revive interest in classical music, and the fact that there doesn’t need to be a rift between the classical and the popular, needs to be on-going. Despite its flaws, Bandish Bandits keeps up focus on this crucial theme ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: - | 5/10
The album swings between severity and surprise, culminating in a glitter bomb of a song that is Chedkhaniyaan. Had the narrative beats landed as well, Bandish Bandits would have soared over competitors ... Full Review

Dyuti Gupta | She The People: - | 7.5/10
How we wish that a little effort was put into showcasing their growth together as a couple as well! But then, there’s a stellar cast always at hand to give the show a leg up whenever it hits a flat note. On top of that, there are the faultless musical scores. And for these big and small reasons, the show is a must-watch ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
Bandish Bandits often tends to wilt under its own weight. But wait, it isn't a washout. The actors, led by Naseeruddin Shah, lend emotional authenticity to the show ... Full Review

Mini Anthikad Chhibber | The Hindu: - | 4/10
A vanilla offering that barely passes muster ... Full Review

Pratishruti Ganguly | FirstPost: 3/5 | 6/10
However, in an ecosystem of films and shows that uphold the unpleasant, grim realities of the world we are living in, its appropriate cheesiness serves as good ol’ popcorn entertainment. And that is perhaps why, even with its flaws, Bandish Bandits will be worth your while ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 6/10
The conflict within the Rathod family has its shares of melodramatic excesses, but it is at least more engaging than the cliched love story ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3.5/5 | 7/10
When he talks about lung-control, or projection of voice, so it travels far; or indeed the role of an artiste being to express an emotion one hasn't necessarily lived—you feel like you're in his class, at once enlightened and entertained. Happy to have signed up ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 4/10
Bandish Bandits On Amazon Prime Video Is A Bloated, Confused Mess Of A Musical. There are several problems with Bandish Bandits, but purely on a storytelling level, the writing suffers from attention deficit disorder ... Full Review

Techquila: 2.2/5 | 4.4/10
Pretentious and Insubstantial. Bandish Bandits tries to be a fresh change in the world of musical themed shows but turns out to be just the opposite with cliched and hasty storytelling! ... Full Review

Just For Movie Freaks: 3/5 | 6/10
The casting is so spot on that the hangover of the characters lingers even after the show. On the other hand, I am not credible enough to review Naseeruddin Shah sir’s brilliance, and I’d like to keep it that way ... Full Review

Planet Bollywood: 4/5 | 8/10
Bandish Bandits is a neatly packaged show that has a good mix of drama, romance and great music. It is the most fun I have had watching a show in the digital streaming space ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5/10
Ambitious musical that tries to include too much, has a splendid soundtrack but falters in its storytelling when it veers between a romance and a family drama ... Full Review

Kriti Tulsiani | Zoom TV: 2.5/5 | 5/10
All in all, Bandish Bandits can be a pick if you want to enjoy Shah's marvel, Sheeba's exemplary performance combined with other nuanced portrayals by a rainbow of actors, who are extremely impressive in their craft and have something new to offer in almost every scene ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: - | 6.5/10
Bandish Bandits is a good absorbing human drama, this riveting fusion of music, love & life is uplifted by Shankar Ehsaan Loy’s ‘class’ music, it’s purely mesmerizing ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 4/5 | 8/10
In these days of shallow entertainment and hollow music, "Bandish Bandits" is nothing less than a passionate expression of a missionary zeal to uplift the audiences. Of all ages ... Full Review

Saraswati Datar | The News Minute: - | 6/10
It’s no masterpiece but watch Bandish Bandits for the lovely music that I am pretty certain we will not get to hear on any other show, and for some its fabulous actors who quite like the music only get seen on web series like these ... Full Review
