1. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
‘Raksha Bandhan’ reflects the stories of people from small-town India, and in that effort, it does entertain especially in the first half. However, the story about bandhan between siblings soon turns into a social commentary about dowry, which takes up a lot of screentime of this 110-minute movie. This highly emotional drama doesn’t fail to touch you, but it had the potential to be a far more entertaining watch.

2. Zoom -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Raksha Bandhan works because it is rooted in reality that is effectively etched out onscreen by some simple yet beautiful storytelling and performances. Inspiring and interesting, Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar’s film is a must watch.

3. Taran Adarsh -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
#RakshaBandhan: HEARTWARMING. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ #AanandLRai gets it right this time… Simple plot. Relatable backdrop. Strong emotions… Several moving moments [interval point and second hour] big plus… #AkshayKumar top notch. #RakshaBandhanReview

4. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
Raksha Bandhan is for the small centres mainly. While it will appeal to the families, women and masses in small centres, it will not find as much favour with the youth, classes and audiences in the big cities. As far as business is concerned, it will, therefore, not be able to do much.

5. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 1/5
Raksha Bandhan is so, so yesterday in both substance and spirit that it could be passed off as a soggy 1950s film that has wended its way through the decades to land in our midst for no rhyme or reason.

6. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
All in all, it is one of those films that you can watch with the entire family, as they come together for Raksha Bandhan. Moreover, it will make you laugh and cry in equal parts. And while it has its fair share of flaws, watch it for the simplicity, and for Akshay and Bhumi’s performance.

7. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
A committed Akshay Kumar can’t save this mothballed, melodramatic film. Do the filmmakers truly believe that such low-rent family dramas, with their uneasy mix of humour and crassness, is the way out for a beleaguered Bollywood?

8. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
Akshay Kumar film moves you to tears with strong message on dowry, entertains with clean humour. Films delivers a strong message on dowry without trivialising the issue while managing to be an entertaining watch.

9. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 1/5
It's only 110 minutes long ,but by the time Raksha Bandhan is done moping over its manipulative melodrama and patriarchal virtue, an eternity has passed.

10. India Today -

Rating Score -> 2/5
Raksha Bandhan scores with performances by its lead pair - Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar. This one is strictly for those who want to focus on the emotional appeal and leave their moral policing hat at home.
