Coming to the first half of Bell Bottom, it is pretty slow-paced. Some back-and-forth changes in the narrative leave one confused. While the story takes time to gain momentum before the interval, it picks up in the second half. Lastly, to talk about Bell Bottom as a whole film, it is a one-time watch that you can see with your family. The climax of the film, however, is bound to give you goosebumps. And that's the reason it takes the cake.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Finally, is it entertaining? Yes, as much as any Akshay Kumar film. Add to that the thrill of watching a film in theatres after what seems like an eternity and 3D-viewing, and you have a winner. Ultimately, we're just happy that we're a step closer to being business as usual at the movies.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Overall, the film has its flaws, but it doesn't fail to entertain. ‘Bell Bottom’ lives up to the charm of a Bollywood, big-scale commercial film that deserved to be released on the big screen. And, of course, the fact that this film marks the reopening of theatres after months of shutdown due to the second wave of the pandemic, moviegoers can treat themselves to a grand cinema experience with this one.

Overall, a stylish Bellbottom embarks on an adrenaline-pumping ride, giving ample high moments to viewers for staying hooked, booked and cooked. Watch Bellbottom and we bet you will get your hands on that retro pair of flare out from your closet, the very next moment!

Rating Score -> n/a
Just like the well-tailored suits that Akshay Kumar has worn in BellBottom, his role as an R&AW agent is also tailor-made for him. Gritty, determined, suave and stylish, while keeping up with the retro look and discreet charm of the 80s, Akshay is stunning in this espionage thriller.

7. India TV -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
However, Bell Bottom has its flaws. Clutched in the hands of moral parity, shabby compromises and exhausted vanity, the first half of the film appears sloppy and sluggish. But as soon as you return from a break after the interval, it picks up delivering some whistle worthy punchlines that often manage to evoke laughter.

8. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 3/5
‘BellBottom’ works on its stated metrics of see, no complexities, everything easy. Fun and games and rat-a-tat action, and no hostages lost, just as they didn’t in real life after the rescue operation was pulled off successfully. We get the flag, but no strident flag waving. We get Bad Pakistani Terrorists who brainwash Hapless Indians, but no loud jingoism. Bad guys lose. Good guys win. Jai Hind.

Rating Score -> 2/5
Bollywood, more often not, turns the fictionalization of real-life incidents into outright trivialization. Bell Bottom does no better. It rarely gets off the ground - it limps along listlessly. Neither the dangerous marauders who have taken control of the aircraft nor the harried fliers whose lives are at risk are allowed any space by the screenplay to make an impact.

10. India -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Apart from its superbly edited story with the finest continuity breaks in just the right places, Bell Bottom is blessed with a fantastic climax. The climax stands out in this whole paisa vasool entertainer – something that you might not have seen before. Even though the film’s premise is based on India vs Pakistan events, the story never really depends on the chest-thumping jingoism. It doesn’t offer the ‘Kashmir maangoge toh cheer dege‘ drama and yet it successfully convinces you that what its hero is saying could just be right.

Rating Score -> n/a
On the whole, Bell Bottom has an ordinary first half but a fairly good second half. It is definitely not a breathtaking thriller, but it will do fairly well at the box-office. It will also get the advantage of being the first big star-cast and big-budget film to hit the screens in 17 months. Notwithstanding the fact that most of the states have permitted cinemas to operate at only 50% capacity and with other restrictions, and also that cinemas in Maharashtra are still shut, the business of the film will be quite good.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Bell Bottom does match the scale and lively spirit of both Baby and Airlift. This is tall praise to start with. The lead character, I’m told, is based on two real life spies. The story itself, inspired by supposedly “declassified documents,” Akshay says, is “80 per cent true”

13. Deccan Herald -

Rating Score -> 2/5
'Bell Bottom', by contrast, almost trivializes some truly touching incidents in the name of ‘fictionalizing’. The film is overtly high on action no doubt, but abysmally low on emotion. And it begins and ends on a flimsy note – the elaborate make-up jobs and the agonizingly extended climax scenes standing out more for its artificiality rather than authenticity, including the sand storm segment towards the end.
