  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-6
Lawless land. Coal mining mafia. Men with insatiable hunger for power and sex. Gruesome violence… Asshu Trikha highlights all of the above in his new outing KOYELAANCHAL. The raconteur takes you to the world where might is right and the voice of the poor and the hapless never make
  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-2
Koyelaanchal is a story of a coal mafia who lords over Jharkhand's coal mines, and how one mistake brings about the downfall of the empire he had established over the years.Coal mafia Saryu Bhan Singh (Vinod Khanna) is the uncrownd king of Rajapur. He removes  every obstacle that comes
  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-2
Cold on the heels of Gunday, this is yet another story about the coal mafia without really being about them. Kumar (Shetty) is the new Collector of a lawless land ruled by tyrannical don Surya Bhan Singh (Khanna), who uses killing machine Karua (Vipinno) to intimidate him.
  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-3
Saryu Bhan Singh (Vinod Khanna) is the godfather of Rajapur. He is the face of the coal mafia. From poor to rich, cops and political leaders to killers, everyone worships him. No one dares to raise their voice against his atrocities, barring IAS officer Nisheeth Kumar (Suniel Shetty).

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-3
As Koyelaanchal reaches interval point, the story is all set for Suniel Shetty to get into his 'Balwaan' mode and bash the goons out of their senses. But that's where the film scores some brownie points as it keeps the actor true to the character.Another film set against the backdrop of the coal mafia,

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
Films with 'K' are slated for disaster, I guess. Just two weeks ago we were treated to KAANCHI, regressive cinema of the 90s. This week we have KOYELAANCHAL; another movie which gets us to visit the 90s kind of cinema, some of which were mindless amalgamation of scenes.
  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-2
Koyelaanchal is a failed attempt to use the backdrop of the coal mines to create a dramatic story between a maifa lord (Vinod Khanna) and a district collector (Suniel Shetty). There are the regular expected supporting characters, the action, over the top dialogues and theatrics to make it a masala movie.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-1
One critic, unaware that the release of Kochadaiiyan had been postponed to two weeks later came for the media screening of Koyelaanchal thinking she was going to watch the Rajnikanth magic on the screen. Poor thing got conned because of the similar sounding name of the two films.

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-3
Vinod Khanna plays the powerful mafia don, Saryu Bhan Singh, under whose reign law takes the last seat to watch at a distance, while the general junta is murdered and punched randomly and collectors are transferred at the flick of a hand.Singh has a right-hand man in the form of Karwa (Vipinno)

  •  Book My Show -Ragni Nathani Rating-1
The movie has its own unique slapstick moments, not worth looking forward to. From a villain who undergoes transformation after being subjected to the chores of childcare to a supporting actress playing a prostitute and posing a live example of a wardrobe malfunction, the audience is next to mortified.
  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
Having interviewed Vinod Khanna a couple of years ago for Dabangg 2, I wondered why this actor wasn't doing more films. How many patriarch roles could Amitabh Bachchan do? It was time for some variety.So it's a delight to see Vinod Khanna in a central role, but it's sad that it had to be this film.
