Critic Reviews A Flying Jatt

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-3/10
When all’s done and dusted, there’s little to recommend in A Flying Jatt. Remo D’souza fails to infuse the film with a consistent lightheartedness, and as a result the fun dries up too soon. Tiger Shroff is both agile in the action scenes and flexible in the dance numbers, but no if no but, this Jatt is stuck in a rut. I’m going with one and a half out five.

  • Film Companion | Review By -Anupama Chopra Rating-3/10
The narrative alternates between elaborate fights with tacky digitized backdrops and randomly tacked on sermons about pollution and even the Sikh faith.  At one point Raka growls and declares: I have a black soul, rooh meri kali hai.  I wanted to say: Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn. I’m going with one and a half stars.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3/10
It is very hard to fathom the purpose of this aimless flight. If the idea behind A Flying Jatt is to unveil a new money-spinning franchise, we don't know about the money bit but it would be a moviegoer's worst nightmare come true. Poorly mounted, abysmally acted and dreadfully tedious, A Flying Jatt, directed and co-written by choreographer Remo D'Souza, flies on empty.

  • Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-5/10
The film is put together sloppily, with several comedic sequences well-intentioned but not making sense. The climax is painful and -- as with all films that yearn to be really big films without having the budget -- looks more and more pathetic.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5/10
A dragged second half, copied elements of Hollywood superheroes and Remo D’Souza’s ambition to ‘preach’ through this film make up for a huge let down. A Flying Jatt is too silly for adults but could promise enough fun for kids. So I’d recommend this film for ‘Adults accompanied with kids’ only! A 2.5/5 for this!

  • India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-4/10
Despite sticking to the tried-and-tested, A Flying Jatt doesn't quite take off as an action comedy. D'Souza leaves the door open for a sequel. But given that Flying Jatt has come of age by the end of the film and scaled new heights - he even flies into space - D'Souza and writers will have to come up with something more substantial to justify the superhero franchise.

  • India Today | Review By -Devarsi Ghosh Rating-5/10
A Flying Jatt has some great gags peppered throughout the film. However, the film is also exceptionally and embarrassingly unoriginal at places. A Flying Jatt is meant for kids. If grown-ups don't mind doing the fabled "leave the brain outside the home and enjoy" routine before stepping into the theatre, they will not mind A Flying Jatt.

  • Times of India | Review By -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-7/10
On the upside, for children, A Flying Jatt provides clean entertainment - with its innocence, it evokes more Haathi Mere Saathi and less cool-cat Krrish. The film takes off only because of its simplicity - a flying jatt who's afraid of heights, a rarity in dark times of Udta Punjabs.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-5/10
What starts off as a fun, light and breezy entertainer suddenly looks burdened by the weight of its bad plot. Jacqueline doesn’t have much to do but look glam in the Beat Pe Booty song and her chemistry with Tiger just didn’t work for me. A Flying Jatt would have soared had it not compromised its second half and become a preachy documentary on global warming.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-5/10
A Flying Jatt begins on a good note, picks up the pace, throws some light-hearted moments, and then faces the curse of the second half. It drags its feet from becoming the smart film just when it’s needed and goes for the all-explaining commentary. Without the spoon-feeding, it would have become a much more entertaining film.

  • DNA | Review By -Sarita Tanwar Rating-4/10
A Flying Jatt isn’t like your usual superhero film— it begins with being a bit more real and that's endearing. It is unbelievable what director Remo does to the film in the second half— a mixed bag of Sikh teachings, lessons on global warming and a showcase of the tackiest production values and VFX seen in recent times. You’ll have to be a superhero to bear this one. Strictly meant for Tiger Shroff fans.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-6/10
Even the film's production value and VFX look tacky, which is quite a letdown in a superhero film. A FLYING JATT has the ingredients that make an interesting superhero film. A section of the audience might find the film's proceedings to be corny; however, the mass audiences and kids might take a liking for the film.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Rohit Bhatnagar Rating-2/10
Tiger flies so high as 'A Flying Jatt' that he disappears by the end of the movie. Of course, he steals the show with his dance moves and martial arts sequences, unfortunately that’s not enough to make him the saving grace of the movie. Kids might like the film considering it’s a superhero flick, but 'A Flying Jatt' doesn’t fly and sinks without a trace.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-5/10
The second half goes south. The film starts getting preachy and heavy. A Flying Jatt could have been such a rollicking film, especially for kids —it had all the ingredients, and an engaging start, fronted by a hero who is light on his feet. Too bad it ends up being a promo for Swachch Bharat.

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-5/10
Another grating factor in this film is Jacqueline Fernandez’s infantilisation. She squeals, giggles and does everything in between to appear cute. I am not a fan. Perhaps, this is all an attempt to appeal to the younger crowd. But the older ones might not feel the love.
