Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 3/5
Watch An Action Hero for some brash and raw action, and if you enjoy cat and mouse chase, you would find this crazy ride equally funny ... Full Review

Archika Khurana | Times of India: 3/5
Not everything in the plot adds up and you wish the film was tighter, but it does have a fair dose of action and comedy backed with good performances ... Full Review

Sonil Dedhia | News18: 3.5/5
This isn’t a great piece of cinema or anything but it doesn’t pretend to be one either. It sets out to be an absurdly funny, unpretentious crime comedy and it totally lives up to that hype. An Action Hero is wacky, breezy, bizzare, outlandish and yet makes a statement ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 3.5/5
Bollywood strikes back in this sparkling meta-comedy. The inventive metaphors, however, are only half the genius of An Action Hero. The better half is its quick-witted tone – which hits the sweet spot between cultural satire and black comedy ... Full Review

Prathyush Parasuraman | Film Companion: - | 3.5/5
A love letter to cinema, that is how best I can describe An Action Hero. Not in the familiar syntax of an ode, but with a pulpy, twisty, slick, stylish, loud, brash, and often bizarre sheen that is just as bumpy as it is burning with fresh ideas ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: 2.5/5
An Action Hero is a well-made film but its commercial prospects are bleak because of the casting and some inherent flaws in the script ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5
deliver a caper which is mostly fun. This Ayushmann Khurrana-Jaideep Ahlawat film comes stuffed with meta jokes, in-house gags, and a running jibe against the shouty TV shows and the hashtag #BoycottBollywood ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: 3.5/5
Fun, farcical, and fabulous caper-comedy. Fragile egos set a lot of balls rolling (and busting) in this mad caper which turns ludicrous by the minute yet remains massively entertaining ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5
The two principal performers lend the movie some of the power and energy that it requires to keep firing on all cylinders. The rest is provided by the canny screenplay and the directorial panache ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4/5
AN ACTION HERO works due to Ayushmann's action-oriented role and Jaideep's screen presence. The twist in the last 30 minutes adds to the fun ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5
Ayushmann Khurrana Presents A ‘Bring Your Brain To Theatres’ Entertainer Ft. A Wildly Hilarious Jaideep Ahlawat! It reminds you of Sriram Raghavan’s school of filmmaking & I’ve never said that for any other movie apart from Sri’s films ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3/5
An Action Hero combines slick action with crackerjack chemistry between its leads. The near-erasure of women in the story is depressing, but the film’s pace gives us little time to think ... Full Review

India Today: 2/5
An Action Hero is only about mindless punches and meaningless gunshots. However, do watch it for Jaideep Ahlawat, if you may ... Full Review

Anuj Kumar | The Hindu: - | 3.5/5
A smartly-crafted action comedy that thrills and tickles in equal measure, An Action Hero’s punches land on target in more ways than one ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5
Cool Idea, Choppy Execution. An Action Hero's oil and water combination of genres doesn't always gel, gets overly far-fetched in places but still holds up on the strength of whimsy and surprise ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 3.5/5
An Action Hero is a sly, nimble thriller, as unimpressed by Bollywood as it is scathing about the people who hate it ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 3/5
The 132-minute An Action Hero careens out of control after a superbly taut beginning and begins to resembles the anything-goes movies that have earned Bollywood a bad name ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5
Kudos to Anirudh Iyer for making a witty and clever film, keeping a healthy mix of satire, action and comedy to keep one entertained throughout ... Full Review

OTT Play: 3.5/5
Forget about the questionable choice of title, An Action Hero is actually an intelligent dark comedy that will leave you in splits on more than one occasion. And that, for any moviegoer, is good enough reason to give it a go ... Full Review

ABP Live: 3/5
The post-interval film gets way out of bounds of believability but the fact it is so relatable with the way Ayushmann is invested in his performance, 'An Action Hero' deserves a special mention ... Full Review

India TV: 3/5
Overall, the film is a decent blend of satire, comedy, action and hilarious punchlines! The combination of some really good action, and situational comedy makes 'An Action Hero' an engaging watch ... Full Review

The Quint: 3.5/5
An Action Hero makes fun of everything it can get its hands on while weaving a story worthy of its strong cast. Jaideep Ahlawat remains an actor who steals the scene every time and Ayushmann is still a star who knows how to keep the audience watching ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: - | 3/5
I did find the film long. the chase sequences feel unending after a point and I wish the film was slightly shorter. But despite its 132 minutes runtime, Iyer delivers a thoroughly engaging and entertaining film where both its leading men -Ayushmann Khurrana and Jaideep Ahlawat shine ... Full Review

India Forums: 3/5
An Action Hero picks up exponentially in the second half which leads to the film becoming a fun watch. The first half and it's jumbled treatment does hinder but the film is an impressive debut for director Anirudh Iyer ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3.5/5
An Action Hero is an intelligently written action thriller, wherein the director follows his conviction to strike the right balance in the genre with some humor and whacky scenarios. The conflict does get repetitive in the second half, but the finale saves the day for this Ayushmann Khurrana film ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: 3.5/5
From hyper-nationalistic TRP-driven media to the fragile male ego, An Action Hero covers a lot of ground using its license to mock. I was a bit skeptical about how the main track would culminate as it rarely deviated into a grey zone. But as the movie went on, that track just became a tool for creating an enjoyable black comedy ... Full Review

News9 Live: 3.5/5
An Action Hero is a refreshing take that is devoid of the Bollywood tropes one is familiar, and frankly tired of, seeing in action-hero centric movies. It's a successful experiment at breaking out of the traditional and experimenting with the modern. And we must applaud one when we see it because Bollywood is indeed trying ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 3.5/5
An Action Hero might derail from the set formula concept, but it might entertain and delve deeper into world affairs ... Full Review
