Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 3.5/5
An engaging and complex brain teaser. Anurag Kashyap's Taapsee Pannu-starrer thriller is one that needs you to pay attention closely but keeps you hooked from the first frame to the last ... Full Review

Rachana Dubey | Times of India: 3.5/5
An engaging thriller that demands all your attention. Taapsee Pannu and Pavail Gulati’s performances complement the writing and the tonality of the film ... Full Review

News18: 3.5/5
Dobaaraa is a mad and whacky tale. It has the good ingredients of Looop Lapeta, and is edge-of-the seat as a thriller. The film keeps you hooked, and thoroughly engaged, even with the constant back and forth in time ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 3/5
Dobaaraa engages more than it entertains. It subverts not just an average movie about time, but also an average time at the movies ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: 3/5
Dobaaraa is a very novel film with only limited class appeal. Anurag Kashyap’s direction is mature and in synch with the film’s subject. How one wishes, he had used a differentiating factor while presenting the two universes ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
The Taapsee Pannu-starrer comes off too choppy and muddled. It’s hard to keep track of the many things happening in the time zones the movie slips in and out of ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5
Nimbly-Crafted Time-Loop Thriller Banks On Pivotal Performance By Taapsee Pannu. Director Anurag Kashyap gets much of it right even when the going isn't entirely smooth ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5
DOBAARAA rests on a great plot, superb performances, and captivating first half. However, the weak second half, lack of buzz and niche appeal will take a huge toll on its box office prospects ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.5/5
Dobaaraa is moderately thrilling and in parts genuinely frightening, but lacks the rootedness and heft that has come to be associated with Anurag-ness ... Full Review

India Today: 3.5/5
The story itself keeps the viewers on the edge, with little or no predictable twists. The comingling of time travel and the parallel universe lock neatly into place. Three cheers to the writer, Nihit Bhave, for that ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 3.5/5
While Taapsee is at the top of her game, Anurag skillfully executes a more perceptive draft of the original Spanish mystery drama ... Full Review

Namrata Thakker | Rediff: 3.5/5
Dobaaraa may seem confusing if you aren't exposed to the time travel genre, but Anurag Kashyap's film makes it the right time to get acquainted with the genre ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 5/5
Seeing is believing, because you wouldn’t actually believe me otherwise. It’s another trendsetting slash cult film by Anurag Kashyap. If it doesn’t get its due now, it will surely after some years ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 3/5
Meticulously assembled, if impersonal. This carefully constructed time-hopping mystery zips along efficiently, yet never feels like an Anurag Kashyap film ... Full Review

Scroll: - | 3/5
An engaging thriller. The pace is brisk enough to guard against nit-picking. Kashyap’s version is actually more interesting and emotionally engaging than Mirage ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5
The film revolves around Taapsee Pannu. She’s as natural as they come in the role of a woman who finds her circumstances altered overnight. She flows from one bewildering twist to another quite convincingly and makes you root for her character. Dobaaraa is another feather in her cap, alright ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 3.75/5
Entertaining, enjoyable alternate reality tale that hooks you in ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 2/5
‘दोबारा’ नहीं जमी अनुराग कश्यप और तापसी पन्नू की जोड़ी, त्रिकोणमिति से ज्यादा उलझी फिल्म ... Full Review

Times Now Hindi: 3.5/5
एक शानदार फिल्म देखना चाहते हैं तो ये फिल्म जरूर देखें। ये आपको एंटरटेन करेगी साथ ही फिल्म बोरिंग और ऊबाऊ नहीं लगेगी। इस दौरान आप रोमांचित रहेंगे। तापसी और पावेल की शानदार एक्टिंग के लिए भी फिल्म थियेटरों में देखी जा सकती है। ... Full Review

Live Hindustan: 3/5
फिल्म एक बढ़िया एंटरटेनर है, जो आपको अंत तक बांधे रखती हैं। फिल्म में काफी ट्विस्ट एंड टर्न हैं, जो आपको एक्साइटिड करते हैं। फिल्म में वो सब कुछ है, जो बीते लंबे वक्त किसी बॉलीवुड फिल्म में देखने को नहीं मिला है,ऐसे में आप इस फिल्म को जरूर देख सकते हैं। ... Full Review

CNBC TV18: - | 3/5
Dobaaraa dares to go where Looop Lapeta didn’t. It breaks the façade of ‘the best life’ and goes on to suggest that each version comes with its own select set of challenges, each altered reality is just as real — as messy and complex ... Full Review

Sanjukta Sharma | Money Control: - | 3.5/5
Besides the clever and assured grasp over material and form, Dobaaraa works because Kashyap and his writer can transcend the genre. Their protagonist is abidingly human and relatable—the best time travel stories often soar when they travel inside out ... Full Review

Glamsham: 3.5/5
All in all, Dobaaraa is not a film without flaws. Also, Anurag Kashyap’s attempt with sci-fi / time travel based Dobaaraa may not be worth an encore but could be a welcome break from the Bollywood content dished out in the recent past ... Full Review

IANS: 3.5/5
Kashyap's storytelling is ably supported by his cast. Taapsee, who leads the pack, blends into the film's universe completely. You get to see a new side of her as an actress. Dobaaraa is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys good cinema ... Full Review

Nettv4u: 3.25/5
Though the film has some minus points here and there, it did justice to the story with the neat direction and excellent performances. Dobaaraa –watchable once! ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 4/5
Anurag Kashyap's 'Dobaaraa' Confounds, Confuses, Beguiles – Yet Stays in Your Head. A sharp adaptation, the film is deeper than it cares to admit and never slips into an instructional mode ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 3.5/5
The film then delves into questions of consequences and the time-space continuum and through Taapsee Pannu’s extremely believable performance as the frazzled, yet determined, woman on a mission, the film remains gripping and entertaining ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 2.5/5
While the film is not predictable and keeps us hooked, it more looks like an OTT product. Anurag Kashyap has made a few projects for OTT, and he narrates Dobaaraa in the same way ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2/5
Dobaaraa shows some spark in the first half but falls flat in the post interval sequences. The film lags behind on the chills and thrills that one expects of a time travel-based thriller and misses out on creating the edge-of-the-seat atmosphere ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 2.5/5
For the most part, Dobaaraa is an efficient effort although it bears practically zero resemblance with the cinematic flourishes that defines an Anurag Kashyap outing ... Full Review

Outlook India: 4/5
Dobaaraa is an edge-of-the-seat, brainy remake, worth watching once. Youth who play mind games on video would like it. For seniors, it would be a change from a typical mushy romance or a family values-driven flicks they have grown on ... Full Review

National Herald India: 3/5
Not a signature Anurag Kashyap film, but enjoyable with Taapsee's amazing performance. Dobaaraa is a vast improvement on the Spanish original Mirage ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 4/5
Taapsee is a good performer but her monotony kills the mood, however, the plot is so interesting that you hardly get time to distract yourself ... Full Review

Newsbytes App: 3/5
Don't miss out this intelligent, fast-paced adaptation. However, the story becomes too convoluted at times ... Full Review

OTT Play: 3/5
Predictable yet edgy. Dobaaraa takes its time to establish the central theme of the picture. As a result, the plot twist becomes simpler to predict eliminating any potential for further mystery ... Full Review
