Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 4/10
Saif Ali Khan's silly Amazon show has the subtlety of a lathi to the kneecap. Hokey and ham-fisted, Saif Ali Khan's sophomore streaming show is a major step down from Sacred Games ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3/5 | 5/10
Watching Tandav is as interesting as indulging in Twitter banter with a stranger. It is engaging but has no bearing on real life, isn’t mentally stimulating and gives an impression that you know what’s happening in the world, when you don’t ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: - | 3/10
Those who rise above the pedestrian writing are Sunil Grover (his Gurpal is shiver-inducing), Gauahar Khan and Sandhya Mridul, and Tigmanshu Dhulia, who infuses his part with real brio, and is the best part of the show ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: - | 3/10
Dimple Kapadia and Zeeshan Ayyub are fine actors wasted in grim, cardboard parts. Only Sunil Grover manages to stand out ... Full Review

News18: 2/5< | 4/10br /> I would reiterate that Tandav is entertaining, provided you have a high appetite for projected punchlines and audacious behaviour ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 3/10
Tandav Elevates Cheap Thrills Into An Artform. The viewer is aware of how surface-level Tandav is, but it’s impossible to not be entertained by its relentless devotion to entertainment ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 | 4/10
Saif Ali Khan is out of his depth here because the tale has no real sting. He is upstaged for the most part by Dimple Kapadia in the guise of a super-ambitious woman who challenges the son of a three-time Prime Minister on his own turf ... Full Review

Koimoi: 3/5 | 6/10
Saif Ali Khan Led Political Thriller Promises Manchurian & Offers Loki Ke Kofte. Although the Disclaimer calls Tandav a complete work of fiction, the best thing about the show is that it takes inspiration from current politics without holding itself back ... Full Review

The Hindu: - | 4/10
A lackadaisical attempt at portraying India’s diverse polity. This Saif Ali Khan drama series is riddled with cliched troupes and larger-than-life figures, that only provides a glimpse at the project’s lost potential ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: - | 4/10
Tandav is as mainstream and contrived as it gets, but not completely without its moments of charisma and drama ... Full Review

FirstPost: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Campy, poorly-researched political series misses the mark. Tandav prefers to dumb down its plot assuming Indian audiences need to be spoon-fed Indian politics ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 2/5 | 4/10
A mere extension of an average Bollywood film. Saif does not have anything new to bring to the table and is on most parts upstaged by Dimple Kapadia's stellar performance ... Full Review

India Today: - | 3/10
Tandav and its picture of Indian politics seem to be painted by a five-year-old, or at the most a woke youth, the jack of all trades. There's no depth, no aftertaste, no texture ... Full Review

Raja Sen | Live Mint: - | 3/10
Politics for dummies. Tandav, is a painfully childish series desperately pretending to be political ... Full Review

Scroll: - | 3/10
Both movie stars especially benefit from Karol Stadnik’s memorable close-ups. Their scenes together crackle with tension, giving this Raisina Hill Confidential the energy it needs to fire up a banal narrative that is about politics but isn’t political enough ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2/5 | 4/10
Good acting in dull political drama. When a silly film/web series takes itself seriously, we are in for a disaster ... Full Review

Mid-Day: 1/5 | 2/10
This series is so deliberately far away from anything vaguely real, that it only leaves you wondering, what is it close to then? ... Full Review

Decider: - | 3/10
SKIP IT. Tandav isn’t terrible by any means, but it feels more lightweight than it should be, with characters that we’ve seen in many broad American political dramas over the past two decades ... Full Review

Sify: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Political intrigue clich├ęs and bravura performances! Saif Ali Khan is dependably good in a surprisingly straitjacketed role ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5/10
Tandav would have been a much better series if its story was on par with some of its actors' performances ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 4/5 | 8/10
Saif Ali Khan, as a cunning politician, impresses with his terrific performance. Tandav is an interesting watch, which will keep you on the edge of your seat ... Full Review

Cine Blitz: - | 3/10
Never gets going.. Director Ali Abbas Zafar’s web debut Tandav is a collection of random scenes which fails to get going even after nine episodes ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 3/10
Tandav Has Lofty Ambitions but Remains Trite and Lacklustre. The show nods at contemporary events and politics, but is marred by poor acting ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Ali Abbas Zafar's contemporary political drama is gripping but too contrived ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Saif Ali Khan's half baked political drama is as basic as it gets. Ali Abbas Zafar's Tandav seems to be the result of some thrilling ideas on paper which fail to play out onscreen ... Full Review

Peeping Moon: 4/5 | 8/10
Tandav makes for an entertaining and must-watch that will keep you engrossed till the very end. It has set a benchmark for 2021 that other shows must aim to match ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: - | 6/10
It has a premise that is definitely tempting. But the character dynamics and the internal politics of the series aren't as captivating as its premise ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: - | 4/10
It could have been a much better political thriller with some powerful writing. In its present form it fails to deliver on its promises ... Full Review

Mashable: - | 4/10
A Show That Doesn't Match Up To Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, And The Rest Of The Cast's Acting Prowess ... Full Review

The News Minute: - | 3/10
Saif Ali Khan's web series is all style and little substance. Far from being a gripping political drama, 'Tandav' is like a soap opera ... Full Review
