Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 8/10
An edgy, fast-paced aviation drama that ends up being a great big screen cinematic experience ... Full Review

Rachana Dubey | Times of India: 4/5 | 8/10
Overall, the film doesn’t spend too much time taxiing on the runway; it takes off quickly and keeps you hooked till you disembark from the theatre’s aisles ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 6/10
Breaks Away From The Bollywood Formula. The film is inconsistent, but also ambitious and in places, thrilling ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 4/10
A Turbulent Flight Through The Cinema Of Masculinity ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 5/10
Runway 34 is a class-appealing film. Ajay Devgan’s direction is excellent in the pre-interval portion but, like the script, his narration also loses grip post-interval ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Ajay Devgn manages to deliver a somewhat effective pre interval portion despite its inelegant, underlined bits; but the film plummets as the curse of second half hits ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
Ajay Devgn's Consistent Performance Powers The Film To A Smooth Landing. Rakul Preet Singh gives a solid account of herself. As for Amitabh Bachchan and other actors, the path is riddled with air pockets caused by blurry writing ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5 | 6/10
Runway 34 boasts of fine performances and a gripping first half ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Runway 34 could’ve been a runaway success if not for falling into the trap of getting inspired by other films. It could’ve been way better if it ended in the interval ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.5/5 | 5/10
What keeps Runway 34 flat despite the arresting in-flight crisis is the failure of the writers to inject tension into Narayan’s investigation or to give the storytelling and characters any depth ... Full Review

India Today: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Runway 34 has a tight script and doesn't waver from its subject. There is no unnecessary melodrama or comic scenes, or song and dance sequences Bollywood movies are plagued by ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 5/10
The film manages to keep the narrative floating as long as the aircraft is faced with inclement weather, but when the scene shifts to the bright courtroom, it loses sight of the objective and indulges in hero-worship ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Runway 34 is a clumsy cocktail of Hollywood movies spiked with the Bollywood brand of God complex ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Runway 34 is a balanced film, with right amount of technical, emotional and masala content ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 5/10
Ajay Devgn's dour Runway 34 takes inspiration from other risky landing films before turning into a dreary legal drama ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 3/5 | 5.5/10
Runway 34 clearly lacks that double-edged touch. Overall, it may hold some excitement for a first-time air traveller but for a frequent flyer, the long-haul flight is not worth the jet lag ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
However, one wished that Devgn had realized that this formula doesn't work when it comes to films. A little more emphasis on the emotional aspect of the writing would have resulted into a smooth journey for Runway 34. Having said that, the investigative thriller still makes for an engaging watch ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5/10
Runway 34, despite the talent involved, feels sorely lacking, once it moves away from the skies and lands back on the ground ... Full Review

India Forums: 3/5 | 6/10
Begins a promising flight but comes crashing down in the second-half. Overall, it still turns out to be a decent watch and a sure improvement for Devgn, the director ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 2.5/5 | 5/10
अभिनय के लिहाज से फिल्म का फॉर्मूला बिल्कुल सेट है। अजय देवगन को हैरान, परेशान और हलकान दिखना है। इसमें वह मास्टर हैं। चेहरे पर दर्द दिखाना हो तो उसमें भी तमाम दूसरे अभिनेताओँ से हमेशा से इक्कीस रहे हों। झुंझलाने में, अपनी जिद चलाने में भी अजय देवगन का सानी नहीं है। ... Full Review

ABP Live: 3/5 | 6/10
हम अक्सर कहते हैं कि बॉलीवुड वाले कुछ नया नहीं करते. यहीं कोशिश की गई है...कुछ नया करने की, ओरिजनल करने की. ये कोशिश अच्छी है. सेकेंड हाफ को थोड़ा छोटा कर दिया जाता है तो फिल्म और अच्छी होती लेकिन ये फिल्म देखी जा सकती है और अगर अच्छा सिनेमा आगे भी देखना चाहते हैं तो ऐसी फिल्मों को सपोर्ट जरूर कीजिए ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Not just the script, even the camerawork is a real bummer. It is safe to say that Ajay is a better actor than a director ... Full Review

OTT Play: 3/5 | 6/10
Ajay Devgn soars on the directorial front. But Runway 34, is more technical in nature. Many people who haven't seen international aviation thrillers may be surprised by the plot, which is unoriginal but adapts well from page to screen ... Full Review

Sanjukta Sharma | Money Control: - | 5/10
Ajay Devgn carries off his role with swag, but the film hits turbulence. What begins as a taut aviation thriller crash lands into a tediously verbose investigative drama ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 4/10
A Stale, Obvious Movie Made With Minimum Effort. In most sensible films, the protagonist of 'Runway 34' would have been a repulsive character, but here we’re supposed to root for him ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Runway 34 ends up having a rather uneventful denouement, but the bits it gets right are genuinely engaging ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 4/5 | 8/10
Runway 34 is one of the most well shot, technically brilliant and well written films in recent memory in Bollywood, with some extremely strong dialogues to boot that elevate any situation ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Mediocre aviation drama crash lands. Runway 34 can be a one-time watch but there are better aviation dramas you may want to explore ... Full Review

National Herald India: - | 5/10
Runway 34 may not have come shining particularly bright but didn’t agitate or irritate violently either. One wishes that with some artistic ambition and imagination it had gathered better speed and altitude. Alas, it seems in more of a hurry to touch down and land than keep soaring high ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Ajay brings an edge of the seat thriller that is high on entertainment and emotions ... Full Review
