1. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Chhalaang, on the face of it, hits the right buttons, gender parity included, but it all seems more manufactured than organic when a man like Montu is handed a long rope and held up as a paragon of purposeful self-assertion. Chhalaang, unable to fend off its contradictions, gets all tangled up in its own mixed messages. As a result, the promised leap never materialises.

Rating Score -> n/a
Chhalaang is essentially the story of an unremarkable man, with little discernible talent, setting out to accomplish goals that he has set for himself — because, at the end of the day, those are the hurdles that are the hardest to overcome. Montu couldn’t keep up with the rest of the world, but the least he can do is meet his own pace.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Rajkummar Rao is good as always playing the unambitious PT teacher, but his act of a small-town boy next door is far too repetitive. On the whole, director Hansal Mehta gets the setting quite right with a lot of detailing. But with more conviction in execution and writing, this one could've hit it out of the park.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Mehta, whose terrific web series Scam 1992 is still making waves, displays a knack of old-fashioned story-telling in this one, which reminds you of Dangal in some of its elements: patriarchal Haryana, feisty young women, and the sports arena becoming a testing ground. Rao makes a gentle enabler of his team, with full encouragement from ‘Neelima madam’: a young girl (Garima Kaur) leads her team, consisting radically of both boys and girls, out of trouble. Girls for the win, yay.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
But the film’s real winner is its terrific ensemble cast—Satish Kaushik, Saurabh Shukla, Ila Arun, Jatin Sarna, Baljinder Kaur and Naman Jain. Out of these, Kaushik, Arun and Kaur are too good in their respective spaces. Truth be told, it’s these actors who have made Chhalaang an enjoyable, non-preachy film. The film definitely belongs to these actors more than the lead cast.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Hands down, the star of the show is Rajkummar Rao. There's not much challenge for him in terms of histrionics or characterisation. What he infuses Montu with is tons of earnest, endearing energy. From quitter to go-getter, his transformation is smooth and plausible. Even if Chhalaang doesn't establish the camaraderie between them, Rao wears the air of someone who gets through his students and inspires them to win.

7. DNA -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Chhalaang will remind you of many films from Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, Dangal and Saand Ki Aankh. There are very few movies wherein romcom takes over sports drama and Chhalaang can be counted as one. But it still has its uniqueness which makes it a movie to be looked up to. Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao take a huge 'Chhalaang' from high intense drama to light-hearted family entertain and lands successfully.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Chhalaang is no giant leap for Bollywood filmmaking, but it sure is a small, sincere step at entertaining fans in a year when we have hardly had much reason to smile.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
The plot of Chhalaang is in itself, not something particularly noteworthy. Like many sports dramas, the teacher has to overcome a number of challenges to best his far superior competitor, who comes off as some kind of a goon bent on winning. Along the way, he has to find a better half of himself that he himself did not know to win over the girl he loves. To close, Chhalaang is a decent candidate for a weekend Diwali film to watch with the family. It's got a brisk pace, good writing, and most importantly, great characters.

Rating Score -> 4/5
Chhalaang impresses you right from the opening credits. When you see the names of such great actors come up on screen, you assume it is going to be a special watch. And Hansal Mehta delivers on that promise.

11. Mumbai Mirror -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Mehta, who has rarely attempted a film in this genre, isn’t entirely at sea here. Even while the film seems a bit sluggish initially, he manages to navigate the character’s graph sensitively and infuses some depth into the film’s takeaway -- “winners are those who delay losing for the longest”. Cinematographer Eeshit Narain renders delicious slow-mo match shots and those from the kabaddi tournament are reminiscent of Dangal andPanga.
