Picture this: Ram dons Raavan's avatar. Sita zips off on a scooty with 'beary' 'good friend' Hanuman. Laksman is out of sight. And a brand new Ramleela plays out; where even the mighty Raavan (with all ten heads) can't crack his part. Gods must be crazy, alright, in this kalyug ki Ramayan.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-7
The last few years have proved that 'small films' [in terms of costing] have big stories to tell. Recall films like DELHI BELLY, KAHAANI, PAAN SINGH TOMAR and VICKY DONOR. Also, one of the strengths of the recent success story, JOLLY LLB, was its absorbing storyline, which was so well presented

  •  NDTV -saibal chatterjee rating-6
At a time when it might seem that mainstream Bollywood is stuck in the rut of cannibalising Hindi hits of the past, here is a Mumbai film that is nothing if not different. It is inspired by a French romantic comedy of a decade ago

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-5
Anything can happen over a kiss. As the lips of a guy and girl meet, we are guided through a spectrum: initial reluctance sliding into a hmm-not-too-bad exploration steadying into a breathless lock-in. This is one of Nautanki Saala's highlights

  •  koimoi -Mohar Basu rating-5
The issue with Nautanki Saala is that it is enjoyable in bits, and in parts wherein it isn’t fun, it gets kind of bothering. Ayushmann and Kunaal Roy Kapur pull off superb performances in their respective bids to try and make the film a pleasing experience for all

  •  CNN-IBN -rajeev masand rating-4
Ayushmann Khurrana plays Ram Parmar, or RP, a kind-natured theatre actor who, while rushing home after work one night, notices a random stranger trying to kill himself. RP stops the fellow - a homeless, heartbroken chap named Mandar Lele (Kunal Roy Kapur) - then proceeds to straighten

  •  Hindustan Times -anupama chopra rating-5
Nautanki Saala! is based on a frothy French comedy called Apr├Ęs Vous, which means After You. Sadly, much is lost in translation.Director Rohan Sippy is unable to fully retain the lightness and effervescence of the original. Nautanki Saala! is funny in parts but often feels stretched and flat, like champagne without the more at hindustan times.

  •  Rediff -sukanya verma rating-5
When it comes to recounting an event or anecdote, I have encountered two kinds of people.There’s one who can engross over the plainest of stories by embellishing it with colourful expression and vivid details. The other, however, can turn the most spellbinding yarn into a cumbersome exercise

  •  zee news -resham sengar rating-4
If you put together an absurd and a predictable storyline, adapted by director Ramesh Sippy from Pierre Salvadori’s French play `Apres Vous`, good actors (minus Pooja Salvi) and Abhishek Bachchan in a cameo for some added star attraction, you get a something that can be called `Nautaki Saala`,
