Soumya Srivastava | Hindustan Times: - | 2/10
Abhishek Bachchan film makes messiah out of criminal, is a daunting watch. The performances are nothing to write home about, but then, nothing in this film is ... Full Review

Ronak Kotecha | Times of India: 3/5 | 6/10
‘The Big Bull’ is a decent attempt to tell a dramatic story of one of India’s biggest financial scams, orchestrated by a man, who seemed more like a common man than a con man. Watch it if you’re an Abhishek Bachchan fan, but don’t let the stock of your expectations rise too high ... Full Review

News18: 2/5 | 4/10
A Cock and Bull Story Overly Dramatising a Scam. Abhishek Bachchan does show patches of performance that are illuminating and one is reminded of his role in Mani Ratnam's Guru ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 3/10
If You’ve Seen Scam 1992, The Déjà Vu Is Too Strong. There isn’t enough here to carry both a 10-episode series that runs to eight hours and forty-two minutes, and a film that is two hours and thirty-two minutes long ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 4/10
A Rushed Portrait Of A Slow-Burning Legacy. In this cinematic equivalent of a pre-pandemic Virar Fast at peak hour, Abhishek Bachchan’s version of Harshad Mehta is far more compelling than the story it defines ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 7/10
The Big Bull is an engaging and entertaining family entertainer and will be liked by the audience. Kookie Gulati’s direction is praiseworthy. He has been able to narrate a technically complicated story in a lucid and effective style, and that’s his biggest victory ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Abhishek Bachchan film is a muddled mix of stodginess and melodrama ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 1.5/5 | 3/10
It is pointless to blame the actors for failing to make amends for what The Big Bull lacks. The film's problems are rooted in the screenplay, stilted dialogues and arbitrary character arcs ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5 | 6/10
THE BIG BULL gets affected due to the comparisons with SCAM 1992. Yet, it stands out at several places and works due to the performances, the dramatic moments and the unexpected finale ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2/5 | 4/10
Even In The World Without Scam 1992, This Shouldn’t Exist! This might intrigue you for a while if you haven’t watched the show; if you already have then, please leave as soon as you can ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5 | 4/10
A 'Harshad Mehta' biopic that ties itself in knots to seem balanced. The Big Bull's questionable production values – including glaring use of CGI – that stare off the screen from pretty early in the narrative ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 1/5 | 2/10
Abhishek Bachchan's sneering expression is ill-quipped to convey the confidence of a wheeler-dealer. Those frequent bouts of muahaha make it worse. So much worse ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The Big Bull is like a raging bull in a china shop, read a careless attempt of recreating Harshad Mehta story on-screen for the second time ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 4/10
It’s more bust than boom. Abhishek Bachchan’s commendably restrained performance isn’t enough to lift a one-note character ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Works in parts. The promising premise is, unable to make the desired impact due to the middling screenplay ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3/5 | 6/10
Going on about Bachchan, because this is also the best part he’s been offered since a dream run of sorts a decade and half ago. And he delivers. A film, of course, can always be better. ... Full Review

India.com: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Abhishek Bachchan Shines in a Dull Story. Abhishek Bachchan gives his all to Hemant Shah. For those missing him on-screen, this one will not hurt so much! ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
Just like his character, Abhishek Bachchan also takes a giant leap into the sky with his earnest performance. It's the writers who got to be blamed for his not-so smooth ride ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5/10
Has its moments but falters in the end. As the screws tighten, Abhishek Bachchan comes into his own, making the protagonist Hemant Shah believable and carrying the film ably ... Full Review

Lehren: 2/5 | 4/10
The Big Disappointment. With a run time of over 2hrs 30 minutes, there are pockets of boredom. But, although Abhishek Bachchan is sincere, and so is Sohum Shah, Gulati doesn’t quite deliver ... Full Review

The Steamroller Treatment Given To A Compelling Story Is A Downer ... Full Review

Money Control: - | 3/10
Apart from Abhishek Bachchan, the rest of the film especially the overly intrusive music makes you cringe ... Full Review

India TV: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Abhishek Bachchan is an unconvincing messiah in this blotched scam. The Big Bull loses grip by limiting its characters. It's pitiful to see how seasoned actors like Saurabh Shukla, Supriya Pathak and Mahesh Manjrekar have so little to contribute to the film ... Full Review

Cine Blitz: - | 2/10
A big bore. Inconsistent writing and unimpressive direction makes Abhishek Bachchan starrer The Big Bull a big bore to watch ... Full Review

Glamsham: - | 4/10
Suffers from weak characterisation & storytelling, the effect is only worsened by tacky dialogues & erratic editing ... Full Review

The Week: - | 5/10
An insipid watch. The movie is not fully convincing, and ends up becoming a rather forgettable watch ... Full Review

The Quint: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Quite an exasperating watch, The Big Bull feels more like the scam as compared to the compelling narrative of Scam 1992 that brought to life the real life story of Harshad Mehta with compelling honesty ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 4/10
Abhishek Bachchan casts an inconsistent shadow of an underdog that fails to connect. So give this one a skip and save your time, and if you really want to watch it, don’t ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The Big Bull is gripping in the first-half but loses momentum in the second ... Full Review

Spotboye: - | 6/10
This Is By Far Abhishek Bachchan’s Best Performance To Date. As the impetuous over-ambitious stockbroker who shook Dalaal Street, Abhishek is every bit the Gujarati stockbroker. Neither overdone nor too understated his Harshad Mehta, sorry Hemant Shah is pitch-perfect ... Full Review

Arre: - | 2/10
This Harshad Mehta Story Feels Like a Wikipedia Entry Made More Dull by Abhishek Bachchan ... Full Review

Mashable: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Taking stock of everything that goes down during the mammoth run-time (I watched it so you don’t have to), let’s just say it doesn’t take a finance geek to draw the conclusion that this is not the best time investment ... Full Review
