  •  oneindia -nabanita rating-2
On the whole, I would suggest, even if you get a free ticket for Himmatwala, please do not take the risk and give it a big miss. Honestly, I still can't believe that I'm in my fine senses after watching the nonsensical himmatwala

  •  koimoi -mohar basu rating-3
Himmatwala demands excessive himmat from the audiences to sustain it through all its exasperating buffoonery laced with dim witted stupidity. Walk out of hall and queue up for the refund Sajid Khan promised you. See you there!

  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-3
On the whole, HIMMATWALA fails as a film. The only silver lining is the presence of A-list stars and of course, the hype surrounding the film, which might attract footfalls in mass-friendly circuits initially. But as a film that promises big entertainment, HIMMATWALA is hugely disappointing!

  •  NDTV -saibal chatterjee rating-3
 But you don’t really have to subject yourself to this monstrous assault on the senses, even if you are blessed with loads of himmat

  •  zee news -gayatri sankar rating-4
Sajid Khan’s “entertainer” ‘Himmatwala’ starring Ajay Devgn has all the ingredients of a mindless masala film. But it does jolt you at regular intervals, for sopping up a 30-year-old formula, proves fatal to your contemporary digestive system!

  •  Rediff -sukanya verma rating-4
In one of the films’ hilariously tragic scenes, a character says, ‘Teri maa, meri maa. Teri bahen, meri bahen.’ But even though I sincerely tried Sajid, teri audience cannot be meri audience.’

  •  DNA -tushar joshi rating-3
Coming from a director who claims to represent majority of the country's audience and hascarved a niche for himself through TV shows, Himmatwala is a sorry excuse for a film

  •  IBN -rajeev masand rating-2
Director Sajid Khan's pot pourri of excessive melodrama, puerile humor, cartoonish action, and garish songs plods on for two-and-a-half hours with little concern for your bladder or your mental health.

  •  Times of India -madhurita mukherjee rating-5
This one might impress the wannabe Himmatwalas out there. But it'll take more than himmat to go back to the gawdiest era of all. Rest, as they say, is history. Repeated!

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-3
At the end of two excruciating hours, the questions I had carried into the theatre remained unanswered. Why remake Himmatwala, which wasn't exactly scintillating cinema in the first place? What were the studios, producers, directors and stars thinking?

  •  Deccan Chronicle -khalid mohamed rating-2
 You need plenty of Himmat to venture towards this Sajid-nama. Without a doubt, all his gleeful interviews against the critics, will be far more entertaining than this ho-hum hokum pokum

  •  Daily Bhaskar -mayank shekar rating-2
You sit inside the hall, peering at the horizon, hoping for the end. My only friend: The End. It does appear, with the words, “It’s a Sajid Khan entertainer.” To be fair to the director, even he doesn’t call it a film. It certainly isn’t
