What to Know

Critics Consensus

Dunki's got good intentions and no shortage of heart, but its uneven tonal blend and shallow treatment of serious themes undermines the intended effect.

Read Critics Reviews

Audience Says

Dunki covers all the bases with plenty of comedy, drama, romance, and action, although the story isn't strong enough to support everything it tries to do.

Proma Khosla indieWire In the end, Dunki undermines its own messaging, sandwiching a series of informative cards about donkey flights between a rushed conclusion and comedic coda. Rated: C+ Dec 29, 2023 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express In the 161-minute run-time of the Rajkumar Hirani film, I was hard put to find anything that made me feel. Even Shah Rukh Khan’s Hardy comes off as working too hard for not enough pay-off. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 21, 2023 Full Review Sakhi Thirani Common Sense Media However, Dunki fails to tell a sincere story despite the grave issues it attempts to interact and engage with. Apr 23, 2024 Full Review Akhil Arora The Long Take Podcast After a decade and a half of not really caring and producing the same garbage, [Karan Johar showed] that he can actually do it if he wants to. [On Dunki, Rajkumar Hirani is] so far gone that there’s no redemption possible with any frame in this movie. Mar 6, 2024 Full Review Maxance Vincent InSession Film It’s ultimately because Khan posits himself as an actor who keeps rethinking how he approaches his multiple façades on the screen that makes Dunki worth a watch. Rated: B+ Mar 5, 2024 Full Review Tatsam Mukherjee The Wire (INDIA) It’s possible that director-writer-editor Rajkumar Hirani doesn’t know the difference between empathy and sympathy [we saw enough evidence of it in Sanju (2018)].
