Rajeev Masand (CNN IBN) – “To survive this film you need to be chained to your seats with toothpicks holding up your eyelids. This one is a cure for insomnia.” Full Review
Anna M.M Vetticad (Firstpost) – “A cliched piece that has its heart in the right place. Kapil Sharma is fair enough in this paper thin film.” Full Review
Kunal Guha (Mumbai Mirror) – “Kapil Sharma’s Firangi is neither meticulously assembled nor a visual spectacle to be watchable” Full Review
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) – “The trouble with this mildly engaging film, with a solid supporting cast, is that it is far too long.” Full Review
Saibal Chatarjee (NDTV) – “Neither the comic potential at the core of the film nor the energy of Kapil Sharma’s antics is enough to pull it out of the irremediable mess it degenerates into” Full Review
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) – “At best, a serviceable buffoon with a flair for repartee, Kapil Sharma is awfully limited in his humour and screen presence to perk up this half-decent premise.” Full Review
