On the whole, Gulabo Sitabo is a film with limited appeal. It will be liked by the elite but not as much by the masses. Its viewership on Amazon Prime will, of course, be huge because it’s the first big star-cast film to be premiered on an OTT platform due to the lockdown closure of cinemas. In cinemas, the film would have probably netted Rs. 65-70 crore.

Gulabo Sitabo is likely to be an acquired taste. As I watched, I wondered how this old-world film would have played in a theater. What would the warm blues and oranges of the haveli look like on a big screen?  Would Shantanu Moitra’s nostalgic score enrich the visuals more? I also worried that since streaming platforms don’t encourage commitment – if you get restless with one story, you just click on the next – how many people will see this film through?  We’ll never know. But Gulabo Sitabo leaves you with a smile and an ache. And that’s a rare combination.

Rating Score -> n/a
Nobody, however, brings more eccentricity to his performance than Bachchan. Behind the prosthetics, you can still see Mirza’s scheming brain working; his eyes sparkle when he thinks of a particularly devious way to trouble his tenant. The gait and the stoop make you feel each of his 78 years.

5. India TV -


Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Undoubtedly, the first and foremost reason to watch Gulabo Sitabo is Ayushmann Khurrana and Amitabh Bachchan's camaraderie. Besides the lead, the film boasts of the solid cast -- whether it is Vijay Raaz, whose dialogue-delivery style is unmatched or Brijendra Kala, who sinks into the skin of the character. The narration is smooth, if not flawless. The fine artistic details of the old haveli have been captured beautifully by Avik Mukhopadhyay. The movie begins and ends with an almost similar scene, which I liked. Gulabo Sitabo is sweet and simple, just like its director Shoojit Sircar.

6. Times of India -


Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ cherry-picks one of the seven deadly sins, greed, as its central theme and tells an appealing tale through two quarrelsome but headstrong characters. The message is short and simple: that it’s okay to desire a lot in life but extreme greed often doesn’t land you in the right place — whether it’s a person’s heart, house or mahal.

7. Mumbai Mirror -


Rating Score -> 3/5
Gulabo Sitabo’s morbid moral, hammered through in the climax, reflects on how youth and material possessions are both equally evanescent. So value those around you before you keel over and conk off.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
And Sircar clearly isn't interested in the monetary gains by bringing two stars in the same frame. There's no trace of vanity in their characters or their performances, they are two charmless people defined by their ordinariness. Who cares than how much money the film could have made had it released in the cinema halls? And how does it matter where one sees it when all we want to experience is- A Priceless Jodi!

Rating Score -> 3/5
Shoojit Sircar has brought a sense of darkness in Gulabo Sitabo when it comes to the content as well as the lighting. This is a new and brave attempt for the filmmaker and it's no Piku. This time he works with man's brain which is greedy and how problematic it is irrespective of the age. Juhi Chaturvedi has once again left an impressive mark with her story, screenplay and dialogues which are dark humour but will leave you in splits.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Overall, Gulabo Sitabo is another feather in Shoojit Sircar and Amitabh Bachchan's glorious hat and continues Ayushmann Khurrana's golden run, even though there is no box office this time. This one's meant to be enjoyed with family.

Rating Score -> 2/5
I missed the zest, the drollness and sharpness, that Chaturvedi’s writing is so full of. The names of the characters in the movie (the property agent is called ‘Munmun ji’, haha), the description of characters (one is called ‘tatpoonjiya’), the movie’s name itself, based on two popular folksy puppets, is more fun than the movie itself: both the tale and the telling are middling.

11. Gulf News -


Rating Score -> 3/5
Be warned, the movie takes time to draw you into its crumbling world of peeling walls and ethics. While you may fidget in the initial portions, the movie gains momentum in the second hour and they seal with the deal with a cracking climax. Just like the coveted mansion in the heart of Old Lucknow, the players in this biting satire have noxious layers to their person which peel away revealing their inner decay and ruin. 
‘Gulabo Sitabo’ is a cracking cinematic inheritance with flawed, soulfully soulless characters. Give it time and they may grow on you.

12. The Hindu -


Rating Score -> n/a
Gulabo Sitabo is all about love and longing not quite found between individuals, all because “haveli ke saath aashiqui (romancing the mansion)” comes in the way. But is that true love? The film’s soundtrack says it all. “Kya leke aayo jag mein” and “Aana hai jaana hai, jeevan chalte jaana hai” are the reminders of the futility of covetousness in the face of the transience of life. Eventually, it is all about letting go and moving on.

13. News 18 / Rajeev Masand -


Rating Score -> 2.5/5
The film also comes with the subtle but admirable message of communal harmony, and the not-so-subtle but equally important evidence of just how the poor are frequently exploited. Gulabo Sitabo is most enjoyable when Bachchan eats up the scenery lobbing insults as Mirza. He is the best thing in a sadly disappointing film.

14. Rediff -


Rating Score -> 3.5/5
What it lacks in intimacy, it makes up in intrigue. For too long, characters move around in fascinating circles until they find validation that brings to fore Gulabo Sitabo's afterword on opportunism and avarice. The course of its parable doesn't always run smooth, but the aftermath of sadness it leaves behind comes from a place of truth.

15. Khaleej Times -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
In the end Gulabo Sitabo is a tragic look at a set of people, with a myopic world view, desperately trying to clutch on to their immediate surroundings. Isn't that something we are all guilty of in this fast-changing world we find ourselves caught in?
