Pehlwan (Hindi) Critic Reviews & Ratings

‘Pehlwaan’ fails to tick the right boxes. It is a battle that is lost in transition – both literally and figuratively.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-NA
The overstretched and strictly-for-fans final act leaves Krishna bruised and bloodied, and he isn’t the only one wondering how he got there.

  • Filmfare | Review By - Devesh Sharma | Rating-3/5
The film is a mixture of all the martial arts films you’ve seen -- so be ready to catch glimpses of Sultan, Dangal, Mukkabaaz et al.

The screenplay is engaging but it does get boring at several places. Also, the drama is over-stretched.

At 2 hours and 46 minutes, the film is too long. He has incorporated several sub plots and they unfold at an extremely languorous pace.

  • Rediff | Review By - Prasanna D Zore | Rating-3.5/5
Baadshah Pehlwaan is a thorough entertainer as well as a thought-provoking film.

  • Koimoi | Review By - Umesh Punwani | Rating-1.5/5
All said and done, this is a worthless mashup of movies like Sultan, Dangal, Apne and every boxing movie ever created.

Overall Average Rating - 2.5/5
