Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: n/a ⇨ 2.5/5
Kajol and Vishal Jethwa’s mother-son drama never hits you hard enough, film gets better in the second half but still cannot inspire too many emotional reactions ... Full Review

Dhaval Roy | Times of India: 4/5
The last scene is so poignantly powerful that it will leave you misty-eyed. The heart-touching fare, replete with positivity as much as pain, is a must-watch ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 2/5
Despite Kajol, Aamir Khan and Terminal Illness, This Melodrama Fails to ConnectEverything about it feels manicured and fake ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: 2/5
Salaam Venky is a depressing fare which will get the audience’s thumbs down. Revathy’s direction is so-so. It is fair as far as the craft is concerned but, unfortunately, she has neither been able to make a tearjerker nor a film which has the power to start a movement or at least provoke thinking individuals to even discuss the issue raised in it ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5
Kajol manages to rise above the background music fuelled melodrama. Revathy eschews all understatement in this Kajol-starrer. Every sequence is created to fill you with pathos, and leave you teary-eyed ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: 2/5
Emotional tale let down by syrupy melodrama. The only thing Salaam Venky does is make you think: how much drama is too much? ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5
Luminously Led By Kajol, The Film Does Not Lose Its Way. The film is certainly not in the same league as Anand as a film about a terminally ill man, but it does have the meat to be a substantial addition to the canon ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5
SALAAM VENKY has some touching moments and bravura performances, but the boring first half and insipid script fails to impress ... Full Review

Shubham Kulkarni | Koimoi: 2.5/5
Kajol & Vishal Jethwa Starrer Is Structured To Make You Cry But Falters When One Tries To See Beyond. The biggest flaw about Salaam Venky is Mithoon’s music or the overuse of it ... Full Review

FirstPost: 3.5/5
Kajol, Vishal Jethwa deliver towering performances in this poignant medico-legal drama. Revathy's third full-length film as director tackles the thorny issue of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide and does so with compassion and wisdom ... Full Review

India Today: 3.5/5
Salaam Venky is a film that celebrates life and embraces passion. It fully encapsulates human spirit and in an unique way, shows how it's the birthright of everyone to choose their own journey in life. It stands out with its beauty, intellect and spirit ... Full Review

The Hindu: - | 2.5/5
Despite some heart-wrenching moments and the presence of a superb cast of actors, director Revathy leans too much on melodrama to tell a difficult story ... Full Review

Rediff: 2/5
Kajol does the best she can with the role though it is a bit limiting. Vishal Jethwa gives the movie-crazy Venky a bright charm ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 2.5/5
Salaam Venky too tries to spotlight important issues and hopes to be a conversation starter. The intention is right, but this is too sorrowful a film that pries open a tiny crack of hope ... Full Review

OTT Play: 2.5/5
Although the notion is heartbreaking, the key actors' performances lack depth as a result of the dialogue that is handed to them ... Full Review

Jagran: 3/5
Apart from a few overly dramatic and filmy sequences, Salaam Venky is a promising tale of hope. With solid performances by Kajol and Vishal Jethwa, Salaam Venky is definitely worth a one time watch ... Full Review

ABP Live: 3/5
Salaam Venky is not a film for everyone but those who do watch it will find a reason to like it. It's high on emotion, drama, and thanks to its actors' performances that it flows very well ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 3/5
The movie is deep, deals with a sensitive issue, and will leave you in tears for the most part. If you are wiling to put the time in, Revathy's directorial debut is a film that is bound to leave you in your feels and make you think ... Full Review

India TV: 3.5/5
Salaam Venky presents a deeply humane subject. Kajol is a class act in the movie. Her performance is not dialogue driven. A lot of it is said through her expressions ... Full Review

Glamsham: 3.5/5
Revathi's Salaam Venky tries to spotlight pertinent issues and hopes to start a conversation all over again; the intention may be right, but it is too disconsolate a film ... Full Review

Lehren: 2.5/5
It is ultimately a substantial, emotional story. But this heavy film required a crisper narrative flow ... Full Review

The Quint: 2.5/5
In that effort, the film is extremely earnest. However, this earnesty is shrouded in melodrama and an almost insistence to make the audience cry ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3/5
Inspite of its many obvious flaws, Salaam Venky tends to work its charm thanks to Kajol, Vishal Jethwa and the carefully curated supporting cast's authenticity ... Full Review

News9 Live: 2/5
Revathi keeps this mother-son story simple, or rather painfully simplistic. Her brief to every cast and crew member seems to be: Don't push yourself ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 3/5
This Kajol-starrer is high on emotions but tests patience. If you are up for a slow sob tale, then Revathy’s film is for you. Don’t forget to carry a box of tissues! ... Full Review

India Forums: 3/5
A well intentioned tearjerker with a towering performance by Vishal Jethwa ... Full Review

Newsbytes App: 3/5
Salaam Venky' will leave you emotionally charged. Without lifting a finger, Jethwa adds life to his character, Kajol's performance will move you to bits ... Full Review

The News Minute: 2.5/5
The film is anchored by Kajol’s remarkable performance, and Vishal’s charming innocence. But it says too much where it shouldn't, and too little where it should ... Full Review
