Pagalpanti Critic Reviews & Ratings

The problem is not the fact that it is a slapstick comedy, but the fact that there’s little or no semblance of a coherent narrative.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-1.5/5
It’s way too long and there’s a lot going on. But it feels like a lazier, cheaper, recycled version of Bazmee’s earlier films.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-1/5
If there is anything at all in Pagalpanti that could be given a thumbs up, it is the fact that the makers of the film make no bones about their shin-level ambition.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-1/5
You know that Pagalpanti doesn’t have much going for it when it resorts to patriotism, the last refuge of the scoundrel and the first destination of the second-rate filmmaker.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
An overcooked, overstretched comedy that can’t resist playing on the loyalty-to-the-nation theme.

Pagalpanti is a sloppy TikTok video stretched to a torturous two hours and 29 minutes.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-1/5
Anees Bazmee's pathetically dull drivel doling out juvenile junk per frame in the garb of funny business.

The performances are wooden, dialogues stilted and regressive, and the story – well, there isn’t one. This one is best avoided.

Pagalpanti will also disappoint Anees Bazmee fans keen on the maker’s peculiar brand of infantile humour.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-2/5
With its swanky locales, stars and a director with a yen for comedy, Pagalpanti is obviously a big-ticket production but unfortunately this once, Bazmee's madcap comedy misses the mark.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-1/5
Avoid this comedy with all your might. It’s a movie which will induce a migraine, even for those who don’t suffer from that condition.

On the whole, PAGALPANTI fails to raise the desired amount of laughs due to lazy writing and recycled jokes.

Overall Average Rating - 1.5/5
