Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Mixed

1. Times Now -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
As a jazzed up version of a female soldier’s fight to prove her might, Tejas scores high mark. Incredibly, Tejas faces no gender discrimination as a female pilot. Flying so high that she doesn’t seem to encounter any obstacles in her pursuit of heroism, Tejas Gill is the nationalist equivalent of a speciality surgeon.

2. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Tejas may appeal to fans of patriotic movies and defence dramas. But a better story and a tighter screenplay would have made the movie more impactful.

3. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 1/5
An Air Combat Thriller Has Never Been So Frustratingly Airy-Fairy. The film comes as a complete cropper - it is a dead-on-arrival cinematic consignment that does no justice at all to the nation, the Air Force or the medium.

4. India Today -

Rating Score -> 2/5
If you are a die-hard Kangana fan, you will most definitely watch the film despite any or all warnings being given to you. However, if you are not, it is best not to be on-board on this ride. And if you are an airforce pilot or officer, it is best to steer clear of the film to not boil your blood. Or maybe, if you have not laughed in many days, you can watch it.

5. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 1.5/5
In a film replete with eye-roll moments, Kangana Ranaut shines through. The film is so intent upon keeping Kangana Ranaut centre-stage that everyone else ends up as satellites.

6. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Kangana Ranaut gives her all to the character and it pays very well. Not at all an easy role to play but this powerhouse of talent makes sure to carry the entire movie on her able shoulders with ease. She’s magnanimous in action sequences, and there’s not a single flaw about her when it comes to showing her rage or even being vulnerable. Tejas is more than being just another feather to the memorable hat of the actor.

7. India TV -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Kangana Ranaut impresses as die-hard patriot executing daring rescue missions. While Kangana Ranaut's Tejas effectively depicts the journey of a soldier striving to showcase her abilities, it is important to note that the movie does not particularly highlight any instances of gender discrimination she experienced as a pilot.

8. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
Tejas is a dull show as it lacks the fire of a thriller, the warmth of a rescue mission and the patriotic flavour. It will entail losses.

9. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
Tejas is a film that soars when it comes to action but painfully crashes when it attempts to navigate complex geopolitics. Kangana Ranaut as the titular character is earnest as a lady airforce pilot, occasionally having to prove her place in the Air Force or in the society as a free thinking independent and a brave woman, flanked perfectly both literally and metaphorically by Anshul Chauhan, who compliments Tejas' courage and impulsiveness, with guile, patience and a bit of filmy drama.

10. The Hindu -

Rating Score -> n/a
In her effort to accomplish everything that a male star does, Kangana Ranaut is losing the plot. After Dhaakad, she is once again the driving force of a vehicle that refuses to take off. Low on logic and high on ham, debutant Sarvesh Mewara’s Tejas is a lacklustre effort to promote nationalist feelings and trust in women officers in combat operations that feels more like a shoddily put-together advertisement of new India than a piece of inspirational cinema. Coming from the producers of Uri: The Surgical Strike, it is a sloppy follow-up that neither works as an action film nor manages to sustain the emotional swell.

11. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Its technical inadequacy aside, Tejas has enough going on for it that would move you and make you weep. As a genre piece, it has got great emotional appeal and a few welcoming ideas to cheer for.
