Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 3.5/5

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5
Life is too short to say ‘phir kabhi’ and friends can be family. Uunchai scales new heights in terms of storytelling and concept, but never quite reaches the top ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 2/5
Uunchai Is A Dizzyingly Basic Trek Through Lofty Themes. It's a waste of a story that might have sung in the hands of a more flexible director ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: 3/5
Sooraj R. Barjatya’s direction is masterly. Sincerity, honesty and integrity get a new meaning as the drama unfolds. His conviction in the drama is evident in every single frame of the film. However, he has not been able to camouflage the structural flaw in the first half ... Full Review

The Indian Express: 3/5
A heartfelt ode to friendship. A bit fewer of several stretches towards the second half where the film meanders into more than one man-made crises, and this Uunchai would have been mission truly accomplished ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5
Long-Winded Motivational Speech Top-Lined By Amitabh Bachchan. Like Mount Everest, which can be spotted in the distance in several frames, the peak that the film seeks remains elusive ... Full Review

Shubham Kulkarni | Koimoi: 3/5
Sooraj Barjatya With His USP Roadmap Brings A Smile On Your Face & That’s All That Matters Here. Uunchai is a movie made with a lot of heart and a whole lot of nostalgia involved ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 1/5
Hum saath-saath hain now too with sugary sweetness, group dances and zero subtlety. A life-affirming lesson about how you are never too old to scale great heights is drowned out by predictability, stereotypes, silliness and dated storytelling ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 3.5/5
A familiar, yet enriching experience. Director Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Uunchai’ tells a well-written, emotional story unhurriedly with relatable moments, making one chuckle and cry in equal parts ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5
Too Much Rona Dhona. Uunchai has a simple enough story that drags on for 169 minutes and 48 seconds on the sheer good will of its veteran cast ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 2/5
Uunchai could have been entertaining if it wasn’t so sanctimonious. A film about endurance shouldn’t end up testing the audience ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 4/5
Sooraj Barjatya has handled the overall story and all the sub-plots with equal attention and detail. Each and every character has gotten a chance to express themselves, which happens very rarely ... Full Review

OTT Play: 3/5

Jagran: 3.5/5
This Sooraj Barjatya film has its own beauty in its simplicity and will definitely put a smile on your face. Apart from the acting and music, the movie will show you the beauty of Delhi, Agra, Nepal, Lucknow and Gorakhpur ... Full Review

India Forums: 3.5/5
A heartwarming ode to friendship & self-actualization which hits the right emotional chords ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 2/5
Where the film suffers is in its duration. Uunchai has a strong emotional core but it lacks strength in brevity ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: - | 3/5
Uunchai scores mostly for its overall story. For it celebrates not just friendship but life altogether. It is also an important film for Hindi cinema where leads are mostly in their 20s or 30s and so it is refreshing to see three men in the 70s and 80s play lead roles in a film ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3.5/5
Uunchai is a well-made film, that serves as a rooted version of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara for senior citizens. The emotions are relatable and the journey is motivating. You can’t help but smile through the narrative and root for the characters to reach the Everest Base Camp ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 4/5
Uunchai a heartwarming tale of friendship, values and everything possible you expect from a bonafide Rajshri film ... Full Review
