Gulabo Sitabo

Critics Review


Ayushmann and Amitabh's simple,'antique' show with fairly interesting elements!

Ayushmann and Amitabh perform well in this irony based, drama - comedy film with an emotion driven layer. However, if you are expecting pure entertainment, this could not be your weekend flick as the entire picture has a slow-ish pace to it. If you are ready to sink in with the patience required, enjoy and cherish this simple realistic story.(more)

Amitabh Bachchan Is A Hoot, Ayushmann Khurrana Hits The Right Notes

The best thing about Gulabo Sitabo, scripted by Juhi Chaturvedi, is that it isn't trying to be a scream. The humour springs from the language and the manner of its delivery. It won't have you rolling on the floor. But it will elicit mild chuckles every time Mirza (Bachchan) and Baankey Rastogi (Ayushmann Khurrana) have a go at each other over petty matters that slowly snowball out of control. (more)

A well-crafted satire that evokes a riot of emotions

While the movie does well on many fronts and one of the highlights being the premise itself, the build-up consumes a fair share of the film, making it a tad draggy at the start.(more)

Kooky, cheeky, quaint and utterly delightful

In director Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo, written by Juhi Chaturvedi, the duo can be viewed either as a metaphor for perennially-sparring Lucknow in which the story is set, or as a literal allusion to its warring leading men. (more)

At the end of the day, this is Bachchan's film

Despite the distracting makeup, his famous baritone and indisputable flair for dedicated inanity lend Mirza an air of significance(more)
