Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 9/10
In an industry that routinely finds it difficult to produce tonally consistent films, and often views poverty through a romanticised lens, Serious Men is sharp from start to finish ... Full Review

Pallabi Dey Purkayastha | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 6.5/10
The serious men of our society are the laughing stock in ‘Serious Men’ and though the film reasonably manages to bring to light the conflict between the elite and the easily disposable, it fails to conclude what could have been an excellent social dialogue on a high note ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 4/5 | 8/10
It’s rudimentary yet deep, simple yet penetrating, serious yet funny. No wonder, they have called it Serious Men. These are seriously funny men or funnily serious men. One of the finest films of the year. Don’t even think of giving it a skip ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5 | 6.5/10
A bitingly sharp, satirical look at Aspirational India. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is very good, channelling Ayyan’s seething rage into something we can empathise with; the tender passion he exhibits with Indira Tiwari rounds off his character. Aakshath Das, as Adi, is perfect, and the real star of the movie ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Nawazuddin Siddiqui Holds The Fort As Only He Can. Sudhir Mishra's first-ever adaptation of a published book is no mean cinematic achievement - it is at once funny, sardonic, bitter, insightful and pugnacious ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5 | 6/10

Teluguin: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The film benefits from good acting by every cast member. Seasoned names as Nassar and Sanjay Narvekar act as perfect props, as the narrative puts across unpleasant truths with Mishra’s irreverent storytelling edge ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.5/5 | 5/10

The Hindu: - | 6/10
This Sudhir Mishra-directed film is a satire and an incisive look at caste and its subsequent social construct that is part funny, part ambitious and a tad generic ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3/5 | 6/10
Nawazuddin Siddiqui outdoes himself in this sharp film. 'Serious Men', addresses the caste system prevalent in our society subtly yet evidently and is able to capture the inner frustration of a man who knows he is a 'small molecule in the world', all too well. ... Full Review

Serious Men is let down by its competent but conventional visual schema—everything seems too clean and ordered ... Full Review

Scroll: - | 6/10
The role is yet another example of how well Siddiqui can play the invisible man who thrives in chawls and nukkads and make a resounding case for him ... Full Review

Deccan Chronicle: 2/5 | 4/10
Ancient prejudice posing as a post-liberal narrative. Manu Joseph is a fine writer but in Serious Men he betrays a rather abhorrent worldview ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Watch the film for its subtle satire, as also for the realistic performances by the entire cast ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
Serious Men is a predictable family drama about a father against the world, and yet it is also an endearing tale of a father who is all about his child. I would have loved to see the later more as the story's focus than the former ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10

Biz Asia Live: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Overall the concept of the film is simple and a good watch. The performances are brilliant, and Mishra’s use of close shots of people, buildings, and surroundings makes the viewer all the more invested in its story ... Full Review

Despite the runtime, it’s worth the watch and it’s truly indicative of failed parenting of today. Performances are impressive but the duration is overdone ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 6/10

Peeping Moon: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Serious Men could have been an excellent social dialogue on societies’ prejudices, stereotypes and atrocities but fails to conclude on a high note. Nevertheless, Serious Men is an entertaining watch and Ayyan Mani is the ‘real serious man’ of this interesting tale ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: - | 7.5/10
Sudhir Mishra and his pool of writers make sure that the peculiar ambitious nature of Mani is there even when the movie ends. With a flawlessly flowing Nawazuddin Siddiqui adding his bit, Serious Men is one movie you should give a try ... Full Review
