1. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Abhishek Bachchan film has some great ideas, sirjee. It’s a pity they get lost. Abhishek Bachchan is a perfect match for the kind of character he is playing. It’s a pity that the material never quite knows whether it is an exaggerated parody or a sharp comedy with realistic overtones.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
Dasvi flunks the test because it walks into the examination hall without the necessary wherewithal. The principal characters - the politician, his wife, the policewoman and the CM's personal secretary - are all half-baked characters whose past is lost in a haze. The actors are reduced to fighting a lost battle.

Rating Score -> n/a
Dasvi had a strong subject at hand, to focus on the importance of education, especially for our politicians, but in never really translates and remains limited to the silly treatment of its characters.

One would be tempted to give Dasvi a little concession, because it is a spoof, although it could have been more evenly tempered, and paid greater care to performances. Bachchan is far better than what we have seen of him in earlier works. Yami Gautam, however, is still to come anywhere near her style and substance of her debut outing, Vicky Donor. However, Kaur is splendid, transforming from a meek housewife to a haughty politician, who quickly learns the ropes of the game and understands how the system can be twisted for personal gains.

5. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Abhishek Bachchan tries to get into Bachchan Sr’s 70’s space by giving his character an OTT appeal. Strangely, he is way better when he is at his subdued best. He drops the act and comes into his own after a while and that’s when the film holds you momentarily. Nimrat Kaur is perfect as Vimladevi and Yami Gautam Dhar’s choice of characters of late is worth admiring. With every role, she’s ensuring she moves into uncharted waters.

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
‘Dasvi’ is a squandered opportunity for a great political satire. The acting is below average for most parts, and the writing is the biggest soft spot. So, Avoid. I am going with 1.5 stars.

7. The Week -

Rating Score -> 2/5
While Bachchan has delivered as per the script, one cannot help but wish his part had more nuance and heft to it. The music is dull, while the cinematography is above par. Dialogues are bland, except for the few husband-wife exchanges between Kaur and Bachchan.

8. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Though Dasvi functions within a patriarchal setup, the battle between the chief minister ki patni versus chief minister ka pati steers clear of sexism. Ditto for the confrontation between the jailor and her prisoner. What I found interesting is how Ganga Ram is neither offended nor insecure by Bimla's turnaround or launching offensives against the caustic jailor. Instead, he decides to be the change he wants to see. Some better writing and Dasvi would be too.

9. Gulf News -

Rating Score -> n/a
The film is an outright Abhishek Bachchan canvas. He plays the big-headed, self-important politician who mellows with time to perfection. He is aptly supported by Nimrit Kaur as his timid wife, who suddenly tastes power, and faster than a chameleon changes its colour, she transforms herself into a bumbling shrewd character who lacks any real conviction other than a desire for power and position.
