      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a hark-back to a forgotten tradition, which, at its best, gave us story and substance. Batti Gul gives us both, for most part. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 27, 2018 Full Review Udita Jhunjhunwala Firstpost The main feature is a bloated narrative that skirts almost three hours. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Rahul Desai Film Companion This is just shabby filmmaking all around. It goes to show that today's producers don't care for the craft either, as long as there's a "message," a digital revolution and a rousing monologue. Rated: 1.5/5 Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Kumar Shyam The National (UAE) No one is expecting the artist in Singh to deliver a masterpiece with every creation but the direction is very sloppy by any standard and certainly not expected from the director with some decent experience. Rated: 2/5 Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Shilpa Jamkhandikar Reuters The story, by writer duo Siddharth-Garima, stretches on forever without saying much. Singh devotes too much time to the friendship between the three characters. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Sukanya Verma Batti Gul Meter Chalu's final few minutes weepily rave and rant about the injustice meted out at the 'sadharan aadmi.' But the mockery that precedes it akin to watching Shahid Kapoor host a humourless awards show. Sep 21, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Suheb A Movie is super he gives knowledge me Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/08/23 Full Review Audience Member For the most part atleast, 'Batti Gul Meter Chaalu' is better than 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha'. However absurdist it's so-called millennial sentimentality may be, it's no denying to the fact that the film comes with a story not compromised to the issue. All in all, the story is passable even if it has melodrama because largely the screenplay is sharply robust and atleast it doesn't give a list tale which is just weaving the issue and coating it with sugar of romance. The performance of Shahid Kapoor is effective, as is Shraddha Kapoor's, and they provide perfect foil to Yami Gautam's awful cameo (despite her solid performance, led down by the shabby characterization reduced to being listener of all those sexist jokes) and Divyendu Sharma, otherwise reliable. All of it might have worked. But Sree Narayan Singh needs to correct the art of execution. That lets the film down. But if you wanna watch it there's this one reason: SK. Watch then, for him! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Very Nice Movie. Good acting by the whole Cast. Would have seen it earlier if I knew it was so good. Shahid outdid himself. He played the character of a lawyer and a get it done guy so nicely. A MUST WATCH MOVIE!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/19 Full Review mirza m 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' is a well-intentioned message film coated with a thick layer of melodrama, that is let down by its laborious pace and tedious writing.
