Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 4/10
Despite Bobby Deol’s best efforts, the problematic new Netflix cop drama never adds up to more than a sum of its parts, and the parts are rusty ... Full Review

Sreeparna Sengupta | Times of India: 3/5 | 5/10
But ultimately, although 'Class of 83' had all the ingredients to make a gripping crime drama and recreates a realistic setting, it ends up dishing out a tedious watch ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 1/5 | 2/10
Bobby Deol and His Team Fail to Make the Chase Exciting, Class of '83, is a cop drama, but it doesn't show the urgency typical of such films ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 4/10
Too much of Class of 83 feels like a retread. The faces are new but the portrayal of the system, corruption, the utter lawlessness of both cops and criminals, is familiar ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 4/10
Netflix’s Class Of 83 Is A Strange And Scrambled Police Drama. Atul Sabharwal’s Class Of 83 plays out like an extended movie trailer. At the end of the film, I was still waiting for it to begin ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5 | 6/10
An entertaining cop drama. Though we’ve seen so many iterations of the gangsters vs honest law enforcers in the movies, there’s always room for another ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Despite Bobby Deol's unfussy impersonation of a stolid, righteous policeman, the film is more tattle than tension, more acrimony than action ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5 | 4/10
CLASS OF ’83 is a poor show because of the hurried narrative and lacklustre script and direction ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 2/5 | 4/10

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Bobby Deol and his terrific co-stars are the icing on a masterclass in entertaining minimalism. Class of '83 demands close attention and that's not hard to give because the director and editor keep it rivetting at all times ... Full Review

Kunal Guha | Mumbai Mirror: 2.5/5 | 5/10
This Bobby Deol-starrer lacks the devastating jolts essential in a story about Mumbai Police’s encounter squad ... Full Review

Aishwarya Vasudevan | DNAIndia: 2/5 | 4/10
The makers have researched well for the film and dug out the book thoroughly for the perfect entertainment. But still, it felt like 'work in progress' ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 5/10
This is where the film’s runtime works against it. Even if there’s a willingness to examine the effects of committing officially sanctioned murder on these cops, there isn’t enough time ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 5/10
Bobby Deol is barely credible as an authority figure. Sabharwal stretches Deol to his limits, but they are not enough to make Vijay Singh into a mythical figure capable of restoring the order by breaking the law ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 1/5 | 2/10
Coming to performances, Deol puts his best foot forward and tries to salvage the Class of 83. His efforts, however, go in vain ... Full Review

Class of '83 makes for an interesting watch. If not for anything watch it for Bobby Deol's competent act ... Full Review

SantaBanta: 3/5 | 6/10
Moreover, the country audience loves to watch policemen like Chulbul Pandey and Singham and this film serves the harsh reality of this corrupted world. All in all, the filmmaker couldn't manage to tap into the heart of S. Hussain Zaidi's world and barely presents an outer cover of the story ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post: - | 4/10
Bobby Deol's Netflix Film Refuses To Engage With Its Own Complexities. The film glosses past the moral and legal fallacies of police excesses and exonerates itself by putting the blame squarely onto the 'system' ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: - | 7.5/10
With a runtime of 98 minutes, Class of ’83 is lean, taut, and focused. Setting its sight on just a few targets, the film pursues them with clinical efficiency and clear-headed logic ... Full Review

Binged: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Lacks Edge Just Like The Roar Of A Toothless Tiger ... Full Review

George Sylex | Social News.xyz: 2.5/5 | 5/10
In spite of a decent presentation from Bobby Deol the film is a flat, rather uninvolving wake up call that figures out how to take an entirely convincing story and transform it into standard-issue TV fare. Without a firmly recounted story, Class of 83 feels more like an over-stuffed history exercise ... Full Review

Jonathon Wilson | Ready Steady Cut: 2/5 | 4/10
Class of ’83 has the right elements, but they come together in an odd package that it’s hard to see as anything other than an endorsement of the vigilante justice it depicts ... Full Review

Filmy One: 3/5 | 6/10

Poulomi Das | Arre: - | 4/10
Class of 83 is reduced to a series of disconnected montages of men trying to outsmart a host of other men ... Full Review

Mashable: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Class of 83 explores cops and corruption with a near impartial gaze. The Bobby Deol-led film steers away from the ‘hero cop’ narrative and instead delves into the moral ambiguity of being a cop in a crime-ridden city. The film serves up a balance of critiquing the system and focusing on its characters, but is that enough? ... Full Review

Jagran: - | 6/10
So one may have his/her issues with the moral dynamism of the typical ways of cop justice as shown in the film, but the entertainment and enticement quotient rarely stays bereft of gratifying audience experience ... Full Review
