1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
To sum up, this one’s a dramatic sports film, which may not have thrilling moments around every corner for you but the point it tries to drive home will definitely kick your insides hard.

2. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
To sum up, Jhund is not and should not be looked at as a sports biopic. It shows you real issues and what goes behind the scenes when you try to accomplish something that everyone says you can't.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Jhund is one of those films, which will work on the merit of its content, technical excellence and superb star cast performances.

4. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Amitabh Bachchan-starrer is an overlong meander. This Nagraj Manjule film can never quite make up its mind whether it wants to treat Amitabh Bachchan’s Borade as a hero, or focus the spotlight on the hardscrabble lives of the slum kids.

5. India Today -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Jhund is a rock-solid effort by Nagraj Manjule. If you loved the world he created in Sairat and crave some real-life drama, then Jhund is the ticket to buy this weekend.

6. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Jhund's spunk lies in its many, many peripheral characters -- Don's smart alec bestie in a red cardinal inspired hairstyle, the henna-haired enthusiast's breathless commentary, the ganja-peddling washer woman, the knee-high punk sporting a Batman tee and barrels of attitude. Jhund revolves around football, but it does not build itself around a thrilling match. Sometimes the greatest goal a man can score is to toss the knife in the trash can.

7. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 4.5/5
Jhund stays firmly in a social realist space, favouring a style that has no place for a revenge saga, a romantic tale (although a one-sided love affair is very much a part of the plot) or a rousing, sweeping finale (incidentally, the tale reaches a crowd-pleasing apogee a scene and a song before the intermission and has the steam to last an hour and a half more).

8. Gulf News -

Rating Score -> 3/5
A determined Amitabh Bachchan may take pride of place on the film’s posters, but it’s his ‘Jhund’ or herd of slum dwellers who emerge as the real stars of this biopic. Nagraj Manjule’s Hindi debut borders on being labelled a docudrama as it attempts to recreate social worker Vijay Barse’s story as the founder of Slum Soccer in Nagpur, an organisation that uplifts underprivileged children through their love for football.

9. Mid-Day -

Rating Score -> 3/5
What you observe throughout are strong yet subtle statements on caste and religion, identity and politics, anonymity and hierarchies. Few contemporary, entertaining filmmakers so accurately survey India’s under-classes as Manjule (Fandry, short film Vaikunth). Vetrimaaran down South is another. This film feels like a lived experience.

10. Anupama Chopra -

Rating Score -> n/a
These formulaic Hindi film touches flatten out Nagraj’s distinctive voice. Jhund also struggles to blend in the towering persona of Amitabh Bachchan into its more documentary-style aesthetic. Nagraj and his terrific DOP Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti, are going for gritty realism and Mr. Bachchan, despite his tempered, genial, avuncular presence, remains larger-than-life. Jhund suffers from this clash of tonality. The actor is also saddled with some of the film’s most banal lines like ‘Janam se koi apradhi nahin hota’ or ‘yeh bacche jeene ke liye sangarsh kar rahe hain’.
