1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Sunny Singh tries his best to fit into the role of an underdog and turns on an innocent charm. But for most part, his expression remains the same throughout the film (glazed eyes and sullen face). After a point it stops making any impact. Maanvi Gagroo has a pleasant screen presence and pulls in a heartfelt performance. Overall, 'Ujda Chaman' carries a relevant message, but the ride to finally get to it is a wobbly one.

The idea would have succeeded had the film not fumbled while trying to retain pace and humour in its post-interval portion. A tighter build-up to the climax would have helped, considering the ending is predictable. Danish Singh`s screenplay and dialogues, and Mitesh Soni`s editing, demanded sharper execution.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
'Ujda Chaman', at best, is a missed opportunity -- of taking a potentially good concept, originally written by Raj B Shetty, further and making a socially relevant film. What Abhishek Pathak, the director, does instead is misuse and abuse the novelty factor the script had, and dole out a borderline cringey narrative of a 30-year old who hasn't yet got the "opportunity" to get laid because of premature balding.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
A dialogue from the film - “Dilo ki baat karta hai zamaana, par aaj bhi mohabbat chehre se hi shuru hoti hai” sums up Ujda Chaman aptly. The film is well-intentioned and has its heart in the right place but offers only little to go beyond that.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Overall, Ujda Chaman is not an extraordinary movie that makes you laugh throughout its 120-minute running time. However, it is a decent comedy that keeps you entertained all through, since laughs are guaranteed. It is one of those movies that is perfect for a fun evening with the family.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
UJDA CHAMAN has flaws and so do we, nobody is perfect. The greatest USP of Abhishek Pathak’s directorial is its ability to lend a shoulder to the tears caused by the narrow minded mindset that discriminates people on looks. The movie also points a finger on the right and authority of people who gets judgmental, have prejudices – be it hair, body, skin etc.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Ujda Chaman is well intentioned and does its best to make a point at a mainstream level, but a sloppy second half and expressionless leading man deflate the noble points the film tries to make. I'm going with 2 stars.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
If Delhi lingo and setting, a few funny moments and an easy-breezy film sound like a good weekend plan for you then the film is absolutely watchable but even if you give it a miss it is not really the end of the world.

Rating Score -> n/a
Overall, Ujda Chaman is an average film that is watchable for its subject but you wish it was made with slightly more focus and quirk so that it would have left an impact. It won’t be wrong to say that Ujda Chaman has the right intentions but fails to strike a chord with the audience.

Rating Score -> n/a
Ujda Chaman might have missed its mark as far as evoking empathy towards those who suffer from hair loss is concerned but what really works for the movie is that it provides some genuine laughs along the way and the supporting cast does an admirable job and that together with an authentic Delhi setting gives you a pleasant enough 2 and a half hours at the movie.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
So if you have nothing better to do in life this weekend and want to go out with friends and family, you can give Ujda Chaman a try. Delhiites have an extra excuse to watch the film as they will be able to see their beautiful city sans the post-Diwali fog and pollution. And the most important reason, watch Ujda Chaman to compare it with Ayushmann Khurrana's next film Bala, which also talks about premature balding and is out next week.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Like the scene where the hero struts into college wearing a wig, "Ujda Chaman" too starts off on a high but goofs up along the way.

Rating Score -> 4/5
Debutant director Abhishek Pathak handles his cast well. Most of the actors leave a lasting impression. The film says a lot about body shaming without diving into the deep end.  Pathak keeps the proceedings equanimous and agreeable even while letting us know that there is more to a marriage than meets the aisle.

Rating Score -> 2/5
There are too many missed opportunities here. An oddball romance between two unlikely partners would have proved a far better bet for Ujda Chaman than focussing on the list of socially embarrassing situations premature baldness can cause. This could have been one of those rambunctious rib-tickling comedies, but alas, it turns out to be as much a retro-fit as a toupee on a bald head.
