  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
A couple of masala fares that released last year were spiceless, borrowing the age-old template to woo moviegoers of all ages. GUNDAY, which also falls in the same genre [masala], has an attention-grabbing premise, well-etched-out characters, high-octane drama, is generously peppered with vibrant songs

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-7
Not sure if it's a perfect film to watch on Valentines Day but let me assure you that you won't regret paying for the ticket of this film. It's packed with action, emotions, friendship, drama and some terrific performances.The story is set in the backdrop when Bangladesh was formed.
  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-7
Filmmaker Ali Abbas Zafar is clearly cinema crazy but the amateur guy with the experience of barely two films cannot do justice to magnanimity of the tapestry his innovatively filmy mind had weaved. The story is traced back to 70s’ Calcutta when refugees from other side of the border were coming in

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
The plot of Gunday kicks off from the violence that surrounded the creation of Bangladesh. But nobody expected the film be an illuminating history lesson about the subcontinent.The snazzy pre-release teasers did however raise visions of a fast-paced, entertaining buddy flick set in the tumult

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
‘Gunday’ is as generic as its name suggests: even that old phrase ‘luchchhe- lafangey’ had more character. In the name of plot, we get a mash-up of many popular blockbusters, several of them belonging to Yashraj, the producers of this one. In the name of acting, we get pumped up beefcake

  •  Gulf News -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-6
Remember the ’90s hit TV series Baywatch, in which lifeguards running on a beach with gleaming bodies were captured to perfection? It was a celebration of sculpted torsos and was mockingly called ‘Babewatch’, or ‘Boywatch’ (depending on which side you leaned towards).

  • -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-6
Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial debut Mere Brother Ki Dulhan was about two brothers falling in love with the same girl. His second film Gunday has a fresh plot where two friends (who are like brothers) fall in love with the same girl - the kind of originality that almost choked me!

  •  Bollywood Life -Bhagyashri Pawar Rating-8
Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor’s much awaited Gunday has hit the theatres and we must say, these boys know how to entertain. It’s said that behind every successful man, there is a woman. But this saying does not hold true for Gunday, it’s the boys who stand solid behind this entertaining film.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-6
If there's one film that's unapologetic about being soaked in the '70s flavour it is Gunday. There's formula galore in the film, so let me put it out upfront - Bromance, love triangle, betrayal, fight between two thick friends over a girl etc is all that you'll see in Gunday.

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-4
Gunday, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, begins on a visually intriguing note. 
Two kids, Bikram and Bala, struggle through the muck of the newly-formed Geneva Refugee camp in the aftermath of the 1971 Bangladesh-liberation War. The production design is outstanding here

  •  Zee News -Aparna Mudi Rating-6
Two young boys thrown together by circumstances grow up together to become best friends and the biggest goons in the city. The entire premise of the movie is about how two young boys stepped into the world of crime and coal thievery because of the world doing wrong to them when they

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-4
After spending two and a half hours in the company of Ali Abbas Zafar’s new movie, I have concluded that Gunday is a textbook example of what a huge difference a tightly cut promo of a loosely woven film can make.The trailer made me believe I could expect better.

Gunday explodes onto the big screen. And what a film it is. With strong characters and a story filled with twists and turns, this movie takes us on an adventure. Directed by  Ali Abbas Zafar, the film is about two guys whose friendship is put to the test.
