Critic Reviews Sardaar Gabbar Singh / Gabbar Singh 2

  • AP Herald | Review By -Common Man Rating-5/10
Like most of commercial mass entertainer Sardaar Gabbar Singh is based out of very old formulaic single line savvior hero problem was that the old wine was presented within old bottle…. Takes away element of surprise. On top of that there are tons of characters keep coming over to screen and goes off without even a dialogue. Irony is that powerstar himself penned story as well as screenplay for sardaar gabbar singh both of these trades seen to be impacting prospect of the film.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-3/10
The movie puts you to sleep despite its loud execution with its yawn-worthy monotonous shenanigans. While the fans can still overlook it, the major drawback of the film is its length. Running for almost three hours, the tedious film is infested with never-ending songs that test your patience. Lack of story is the final nail in the coffin. To sum it all, Gabbar says "main Jo bhi bolta hu woh FIR bunjata hai." Like the dialogue, this supposed comedy seems equally inconsequential. Whatever Kalyan says or does seems to have become a feature film.

  • Times Of India | Review By -Pranita Jonnalagedda Rating-5/10
To lay it on the line, the film is a one man show where there's a display of Pawan Kalyan and his histrionics. His trademark style statements - the karate style fights, the hand+neck mannerisms, the rendition of a folk song along with a dance and a charismatic wielding of guns - all make an appearance here. Most of the character artistes are wasted with nothing much to do other than hang around the hero as he is in action.

  • DNA | Review By -Latha Srinivasan Rating-5/10
The Telugu star has tried to come up with something engaging and entertaining for the audience and the film does have its moments. The story offers nothing new to the viewer and with a running time of 164 minutes, it is a tad too long. Some of the scenes in the film can actually be edited out because they don’t add to the story. Since the movie has so many characters, the effort of fitting them all into the story has actually made the script go haywire.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-5/10
The outdated story even lacks genuine humour that sometimes South Indian films are liberally drizzled with. The background music is so loud that it relentlessly assaults your senses even as you are trying to concentrate on yet another fight sequence taking place on the screen. The music (Devi Sriprasad) is hummable and the action at places is watchable, and then it gets too repetitive for its own good.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Suresh Kavirayani Rating-5/10
The action scenes have been interestingly choreographed by Ram Laxman. Director K.S. Ravindra however hasn’t concentrate much on editing as some scenes are disjointed and end abruptly. The film leaves one with the feeling that something was missing, perhaps the magic of Pawan Kalyan. Finally, Sardar Gabbar Singh is only for Pawan Kalyan fans, apart from a few entertaining moments, there is nothing to take away from it.

  • CNN IBN | Review By -Karthik Keramalu Rating-5/10
Pawan’s energy while uttering punch dialogues is massy enough. But amidst all the whistle-worthy moments and Chiranjeevi-style steps, ‘Sardaar Gabbar Singh’ turns into a movie that pulls in its audience via clickbait. Once the story enters Rattanpur’s diaries in which Pawan starts off by removing the legs of Sharad’s army, the film has no breath left.

  • Chitramala | Review By -Vikram Guru Rating-5/10
Sardaar Gabbar Singh starts with a biggest problem created by antagonist to the innocents of Rattanpur and sorrounding areas and people hoping for a person to stand for them as a leader and solve their problems. So our Power Star is only the hope. His mannerisms and acts involved in solving problems of Rattanpur people make fans go gaga over them. Scenes and situations are conceived putting just fans in mind.

  • 123 Telugu | Review By -123 Telugu Team Rating-6/10
Sardaar Gabbar Singh will surely go well with all Pawan Kalyan fans. Right from the word go, it is Pawan’s solid screen presence and energetic performance that will bind you completely. Impressive first half and some stylish thrills are basic assets. But a weak story line, lengthy run time and a dragged out second half spoil the fun to an extent and make this film exclusive for fans only.

  • Filmi Beat | Review By -Pravallika Anjuri Rating-5/10
Sardaar Gabbar Singh was clearly a failure of the director, he lost the purpose of his job. Almost all the scenes lacked any content and the flow of the film makes you wonder if the film really had any script. Many scenes evidently needed a patch work as they were absurdly abrupt. If there is anyone, who has done full justice to their role it is Devi Sri Prasad, who tried his best to lift the spirits with his background score and super catchy tunes.

  • Indiaglitz | Review By -Indiaglitz Team Rating-6/10
The film is Pawan Kalyan's one-man show .  Unlike in Gabbar Singh, the star chips in with large doses of non-heroic banter.  From doing a 'Sanna jaaji padaka..' to showing risible reverence to Her Highness (Urvashi entertains) to doing spoofs in a comedy scene that extends into the climax, he does it all.  As for heroism, there could have been a better impact of it; the quintessential Gabbar Singh arrogance prominently gives way to the Gudumba Shankar technique (whatever that means).
