Devarsi Ghosh | Hindustan Times: - | 5/10
Spiritual sequel to A Wednesday comes with lots of flaws. It’s a serviceable vigilante movie whose plusses include the tense atmosphere supplied by the premise itself ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3/5 | 6/10
Despite a rather predictable backstory, A Thursday redeems itself with its powerful emotional arc and social commentary in the latter half. It touches upon a relevant issue that will resonate with women across the globe ... Full Review

A Shallow Addition To A Complicated Genre. The film is yet another lazy and rabble-rousing iteration of a complicated issue ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Deserves a series of eyerolls. The chief problem with Yami Gautam film is that we do not take any of this seriously, whether it is Naina brandishing a gun, or snarling and cooing at her hostages ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 1.5/5 | 3/10
A stubbornly daft hostage thriller. All is excessive, unsubtle and improbable in this 129-minute revenge fantasy ... Full Review

Shubham Kulkarni | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Yami Gautam Is A Surprise Package In A Film With Lazy Editing & People Advising The PM To Take Audience Polls Seriously. A Thursday is a Yami Gautam show and she does bring her A-game on. But the set up ditches her a bit ... Full Review

FirstPost: 2.75/5 | 5.5/10
A Thursday strives to be urgent, relevant and cool, but succeeds only partially, because it stops to make a point far too often ... Full Review

India Today: 4/5 | 8/10
In conclusion, we can just say that Yami Gautam's A Thursday is the perfect thriller to watch. It is executed well and has a taut script. It’s a film that should have ideally come in cinemas. We highly recommend it ... Full Review

MensXP: 60% | 6/10
Overall, A Thursday isn’t even close to the brilliance of A Wednesday but still makes for an engaging and gripping watch. You can give this one a try ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 2.75/5 | 6/10
A Thursday is a kidnap drama that has a good premise. Yami Gautam does a good job with the performance and the last half an hour is exciting. But the middle portions are boring and dragged for no reason. If you are the one who loves thrillers, give this film a shot ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
Yami Gautam's Resounding Performance Leaves A Lasting Impression ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 7/10

Times Now Hindi: 3/5 | 6/10
नीरज पांडे की फिल्म अ वेडनेसडे कल्ट क्लासिक फिल्मों में गिनी जाती है, उसके सामने अ थर्सडे दमदार साबित नहीं हुई। लेकिन यामी गौतम की फिल्म भी देखने लायक है। परिवार के साथ यह फिल्म जरूर देखना चाहिए क्योंकि इसमें बेहद महत्वपूर्ण मुद्दे पर बात की गई है। ... Full Review

Money Control: - | 5.5/10
Cathartic and relevant, but the film suffers from too much ardor. A thriller that replicates the common man vigilantism of Neeraj Pandey’s ‘A Wednesday’—but with far less potency and skill ... Full Review

OTT Play: 3/5 | 6/10
An out-and-out Yami Gautam film backed by a blood-curdling climax. A Thursday is an important watch for the social issues it touches upon and the great performances by the actors. ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: - | 7/10
Yami Gautam is the uncanny hero of the film. A story like this has to be well written and well enacted. Writers Ashley Lobo and Khambata deliver a taut screenplay and Gautam plays the mysterious Naina with absolute ease ... Full Review

Yami Gautam delivers her best performance in this taut thriller. However, it's a little too mawkishly sentimental ... Full Review

Desi Martini: 2/5 | 4/10
Yami Gautam's hostage drama operates strictly outside the realm of believability. While Bollywood simply seems to have done away with dramas without a social message, all the effort put into the big reveal of it in this particular instance is simply taxing ... Full Review

Decent hostage crisis film that takes itself too seriously ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | IWM Buzz: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Is Interesting But Seriously Flawed. While Yami is able to bring out the character’s self-loathing during the hostage situation she fails to take her character deeper into her soul to dig out the dirt that lies underneath the sardonicism ... Full Review
