Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: n/a ⇨ 4/10
Ajay Devgn directs and stars in this less than impressive Kaithi remake high on VFX and adrenaline ... Full Review

Harshada Rege | Times of India: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
Bholaa packs in quite a punch with his strength, grit and charisma ... Full Review

News18: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
Bholaa comes across as a film which had potential to be a thrilling ride, no holds barred. However, repeated digressions of emotions waters it down to “it could have been” ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: n/a ⇨ 4/10
Bholaa is Kaithi on steroids ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: n/a ⇨ 4/10
Instead of a taut thriller, we get a listless action ballad that manages to invisibilise Tabu ... Full Review

Deepanjana Pal | Film Companion: n/a ⇨ 4/10
All you have at the end of Bholaa is an audience that’s bored and, thanks to the film’s terrible sound design, hard of hearing ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
Ajay Devgn delivers a no-holds-barred, bang-for-your-buck actioner ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: 2.5/5 ⇨ 5/10
Although Bholaa has some cleverly crafted set pieces, at times it feels like a video game jumping from a boss fight to a boss fight, without any cutscenes ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 ⇨ 4/10
The relentless cacophony is, of course, of a piece with what Bholaa is out to achieve. It is a film that goes the whole nine yards and loses its way ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
BHOLAA is a mass-appealing film with scale, grandeur, breathtaking action ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
What’s Good: It’s Ajay Devgn’s bewildering passion for creating that one perfect actioner & this is a step in the right direction ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | First Post: 2/5 ⇨ 4/10
Diana is among a handful of pleasant surprises in the area of diversity and cultural heterogeneity that Bholaa throws up. Having done some things so right, (Ajay) Devgn and his crew get so much else so wrong that they completely wreck the film ... Full Review

India Today: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
A well-packaged actioner that caters to the mass audience. The film features a good mix of elevation sequences and emotional scenes ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
Ajay Devgn’s remake of the Tamil hit retains the original’s life or death urgency but revises its raw, massy momentum for a freakish tone that works wonders for Bholaa as long as it lasts ... Full Review

Live Mint: n/a ⇨ 4/10
Bholaa is a 3D reimagining of the heavy-duty action film with amped up low-grade computer graphics and a breathless body count ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: n/a ⇨ 6/10
The action, the camerawork, Devgn’s athleticism and Tabu’s poise keep the eyeballs engaged. The nagging sense of an artificially induced high, not unlike the one sought by Dobriyal’s Ashu, never goes away ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: n/a ⇨ 3/10
Devgn is a man from another planet in this weak remake. If 'Kaithi', the Tamil original, had a method to its violence, 'Bholaa' is video-game savagery ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 2.5/5 ⇨ 5/10
A mishmash of well-crafted action set pieces in the garb of a narrative. Ajay Devgn’s remake of Lokesh Kanagaraj’s Kaithi cherry-picks its highs but jettisons the necessary lows ... Full Review

ABP Live: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
A Complete Action Entertainer Package. Ajay Devgn's attempt as a director is earnest and despite the film's problems manages to keep you hooked ... Full Review

Times Now News: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
An excellent action-entertainer, which is marred by a lax plot. There can be no complaints when it comes to Ajay Devgn’s acting in Bholaa. The actor-director owns the character – effortlessly slipping into an action avatar. The film plays out like a bildungsroman and is accentuated by some excellent fight sequences ... Full Review

Zoom TV: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
It is safe to say that it is purely an 'Ajay Devgn' style attempt to treat audiences to an intense crime thriller with emotions at the centre. However, one might feel that something is missing in a few scenes and that connectivity is lost ... Full Review

India TV: 3.5/5 ⇨ 7/10
Ajay Devgn's Bollywood movie is crafted for the masses and perfectly blends high-octane action, thriller and soul in the first half and ends with a surprising climax where a 'Bollywood actor' cameo is waiting ... Full Review

The Week: n/a ⇨ 6/10
The film is a watchable entertainer for the action-craving audiences giving them larger-than-life two-and-a-half hours of their lives, which is understandably the current cinematic pull for the filmmakers to get audiences into theatres ... Full Review

The Quint: n/a ⇨ 6/10
Bholaa is, despite its flaws, an entertaining film for the crowd that would enjoy the genre. With multiple things happening at the same time, the film leaves little place for boredom but for those wondering, it doesn’t match up to the charm of Kaithi and I blame that primarily to the way the tandoori-chicken eating scene isn’t fully realised ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: n/a ⇨ 6.5/10
Ajay Devgn's film has a credible plot with a jarring background score ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3/5 ⇨ 6/10
Bholaa primarily rides on well-designed action scenes directed tactfully by Ajay Devgn and his team. It has presented the 'Mass Maharaja' just as he deserves to be presented though the adaptation warranted a better screenplay and pacing in the second half ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: n/a ⇨ 2/10
Remove all that craft thoughts from kaithi and approach it as a podium for the hero to pull off outrageous stunts; that's Bholaa for you ... Full Review

Outlook India: 4/5 ⇨ 8/10
With death-defying action sequences and an epic historic sweep, 'Bholaa' offers everything a martial arts fan could ask for ... Full Review

Mens XP: 70% ⇨ 7/10
Ajay Devgn Nails The Blood-Soaked Kaithi Remake With Tabu & Solid Supporting Cast ... Full Review

Financial Express: 4/5 ⇨ 8/10
A well-packaged action film that caters to the mass audience. Bholaa is a good mix of action, comedy, and emotional scenes ... Full Review
