Aamir Khan's feel-good film doesn't even try to stand out, merely apes Forrest Gump ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The film may not be as effortlessly moving or immersive as the original but it will make you want to see it with your family. At a time of evolving culture, LSC holds onto the good old values that make it worthy of a family outing ... Full Review

Deepanjana Pal | Film Companion: - | 4/10
In Laal Singh Chaddha, Aamir Khan is More Mr. Bean Than Forrest Gump. The film has Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan and a lot of heart, but that’s not enough to save it from feeling too long ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 4/10
Laal Singh Chaddha is a dull and over-indulgent fare which will find some appreciation among the classes mainly but will not find favour with the masses. Advait Chandan’s direction is alright. While he knows the craft of filmmaking, he adopts a narrative style which is as slow-paced as the script ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5 | 4/10
Aamir Khan falls back on easy crutches in a meandering tale. It’s not just the pace of the film which is the trouble. It is also, centrally and crucially, Sardar Laal Singh Chaddha himself, as played by Aamir Khan ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
Aamir Khan's Film Is Watchable, Flaws Notwithstanding. A de-aged Aamir Khan throws all that he has into the role and comes up with a simpleton who is wondrously loveable ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5 | 4/10
Despite fine performances and lovely moments the excessive length and slow pacing goes against LAAL SINGH CHADDHA ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 2/5 | 4/10
DISAPPOINTS. #AamirKhan’s comeback vehicle #LSC runs out of fuel midway… Lacks a captivating screenplay to enthrall you [second half goes downhill]… Has some terrific moments, but lacks fire in totality ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Laal Singh Chaddha is much more than a tribute to Forrest Gump. It has its unique characteristics which also include some flaws but overall, a great attempt at retelling a classic story in your way ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.5/5 | 5/10
A remake that does some things better than Forrest Gump, some things mindlessly worse. Laal Singh Chaddha completely avoids commenting on the divisive forces pervading India today. Instead, it panders to those very forces in its representation of Muslims ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 3/10
Advait Chandan’s faithful adaptation of ‘Forrest Gump’ hardly asks any tough questions, almost tutors the audience, and doesn’t allow the visuals to communicate ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3.5/5 | 7/10
It's a lovingly crafted individualistic, melodious ode to the schmaltzy school of film-making whose audience is patient, sympathetic and loves to be pulled at their heartstrings ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 4/10
Old ideas, new failings. A distractingly eccentric Aamir Khan headlines a ‘Forrest Gump’ adaptation with little independent thought or moral courage ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 6/10
Faithful ‘Forrest Gump’ remake has its big-hearted moments. The sloppy heart at the core of the scripting contrivances is exemplified by Pritam’s lovely score and Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lullaby-like lyrics ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
What's Yay: Atul Kulkarni's faithful adaptation, Performances. What's Nay: Lazy pace of the narrative, Length of the film ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5/10
Laal Singh Chaddha reaches its pinnacle during Shah Rukh Khan’s terrific cameo. Sadly, the film as a whole isn’t enough to fill your heart with the kind of joy the protagonist gets while savoring those gol gappes ... Full Review

The Week: 2/5 | 4/10
Aamir Khan's performance makes this a tiresome watch'Forrest Gump' screenplay tweaked to suit Indian palate, but lacks the spark ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3/5 | 6/10
Considering the stature of the original, it’s hard to not compare Laal Singh Chaddha with Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. But even after that, Aamir Khan and his team manage to live up to the original and present an entertaining watch. Those who will be seeing it as a standalone film will be pleasantly surprised. The Hindi version is not flawless, but isn’t perfection overrated anyway? ... Full Review

Edward Douglas | The Weekend Warrior: - | 8.5/10

Fred Topel | United Press International: - | 6/10
Laal Singh Chadda is faithful to Forrest Gump from the floating feather to the plot structure. Since the history is less vital to the narrative, it gives the story itself more weight, with some new thematic context ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 2.25/5 | 4.5/10
Laal Singh Chadha is an epic disappointment. The film is boring, lacks drama, and is quite lengthy. Chay Akkineni fares well but Aamir’s magic is clearly missing in this film. Even though Aamir’s films are bad, he never disappoints with his performance. But sadly, in Laal Singh Chadha he too looks lost and disappoints his fans and general audience making this film a bit letdown ... Full Review

J Hurtado | Austin Chronicle: - | 3/10
Laal Singh Chaddha is Forrest Gump for people who thought the original film was too edgy, and that’s not a good place to be ... Full Review

Carlos Aguilar | TheWrap: - | 4/10
What remains troubling about the essence of the premise, regardless of its language and cultural context, is that it insinuates the protagonist’s disposition for good and kindness derives from his cognitive disability ... Full Review

Proma Khosla | indieWire: B+ | 6/10
Instead of a box of chocolates or the obvious Indian equivalent, the film takes things a step further, adding strong depth and resonance to what could otherwise have been an unremarkable adaptation ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 3/5 | 6/10
Director Advait Chandan is too literal in his adaptation of the 90s classic but finds a warmth and political honesty the original lacks ... Full Review
