Gulabo Sitabo Critic Reviews & Ratings

Gulabo Sitabo cherry-picks one of the seven deadly sins, greed, as its central theme and tells an appealing tale through two quarrelsome but headstrong characters.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-2.5/5
Gulabo Sitabo is most enjoyable when Bachchan eats up the scenery lobbing insults as Mirza. He is the best thing in a sadly disappointing film.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3.5/5
With the actors giving the film their all, Amitabh Bachchan's wizened, curmudgeonly act is the main propellant.

The names of the characters in the movie, the description of characters, the movie’s name itself is more fun than the movie itself: both the tale and the telling are middling.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-NA
Gulabo Sitabo stumbles considerably in its middle portions and stretches itself too thin before finally clicking into place for a memorable denouement.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Gulabo Sitabo is both a melancholic lament for and a biting satire on Lucknow and its people. A film in which language reigns supreme.

Shoojit Sircar’s Gulabo Sitabo leaves you with a smile and an ache. And that’s a rare combination.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-3.5/5
Sircar's storytelling is meditative in nature, his trademark pensiveness and enigma envelop Gulabo Sitabo and yet, leaves ample space for wit and oddity.

When the banter between Amitabh Bachchan and Ayushmann Khurrana gets boring, the film begins to slip.

GULABO SITABO is a decent entertainer for home viewing. Despite the lack of humour and an average script, the film works majorly because of the performances, the Lucknow setting and the twist in the end.

Overall Average Rating - 3/5
