      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Madhuri Dixi's gang, on the other hand, is as make-believe as make-believe can get. Gulaab Gang is faking it. Rated: 1/5 Dec 14, 2017 Full Review Danny Bowes RogerEbert.com Ultimately Gulaab Gang is a compelling ninety minute underdog-vs.-the-system action picture that has the misfortune to unfold over the course of two hours and twenty minutes. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 14, 2017 Full Review Lisa Tsering Hollywood Reporter This is no arty festival film - where Gulaab Gang succeeds is in its total embrace of the Bollywood style, with all its music and deliberate artifice. Dec 14, 2017 Full Review Manjusha Radhakrishnan Gulf News (UAE) While the film is largely entertaining, I wish the director had not bowed down to the pressure of turning Gulaab Gang into a typical Bollywood masala film. Sep 13, 2018 Full Review Saibal Chatterjee NDTV Women, Madhuri and Juhi included, certainly deserve better. Rated: 2/5 Dec 14, 2017 Full Review Sweta Kaushal Hindustan Times There are several cliches and loopholes like this in the film but it is an entertaining potboiler nonetheless.

      yash b "Gulaab Gang" feels too focused on entertainment value to say anything particularly profound, which is a shame because there was potential here. The film's messages are clear, they just don't pack the punch they should because the only memorable scenes in the movie are either action scenes or fast-paced songs. The movie is okay to watch just as entertainment, but it feels like it thinks it is more of a social commentary than it really comes off as. Overall, I think it is okay, but seems like a missed opportunity due to its talented cast and subject matter. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I absolutely loved it. Granted I thought the sudden bursts of song sort of derailed the momentum, but the action was fantastic. A rare film showing women taking care of business, especially when learning there really is a group of women known as the Gulabi Gang. The relationship between Rajjo and Sumitra was awesome as was their acting. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm so happy India is making films like this. Juhi Chawla is amazing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Emotional and very touchy. Loved it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Gulaab Gang excels as a movie with empowered women in the lead. Movie is inspired from the life story of Ms. Sampal Lal Devi (original Gulaabi Gang leader - a social worker currently at village Badausa in Banda district of Uttar Pradesh, an ex Big-Boss contestant as well). The movie begins with the narration of Anil Kapoor introducing the Madhopur village and the Gulaabi Gurukul. Lot of social issues faced by rural women are dealt in the movie right from the very beginning of the movie viz. depriving girls of the education rights, domestic violence, rape etc. Madhuri Dixit as Rajjo is running her Gulaabi Gurukul, where she teaches small girls alphabets and also prepares young girls for self-defense wielding lathis. They weave their own pink sarees. The whole 70mm screen turns pink when they move in a group. Certain rare moments with great finesse: to see them fearlessly detaining a corrupt government official within the walls of the office to fetch the electricity connection back in their village; to see wielding lathis and recovering the truck loaded with stolen grains; twisting the hand of the man who physically abused his wife; punishing the guy who raped a young teenage girl... let me not reveal the complete list. Juhi Chawla as politician Sumitra Devi, in her very first villainous character is very convincing. She only values power, time and money and is a very self-centered politician. She actually raises a feeling of hatred towards her character in the movie. The supporting cast Divya Jagdale, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Priyanka Bose, Lata S Singh, Vinitha Menon, Rani Patel, Tanvi Rao are all good and convincing as Gulaab Gang members. The director Saumik Sen has portrayed Gulaab gang in an excellent manner. The best catch of the movie is at the end when he sings 'Jai Ho' as a tribute to different empowered women who made difference to the society in their own ways. I wish, Sampat Lal should have also been shown along with them. Music by Saumik Sen is as per the tone of movie. Madhuri Dixit has given voice to a song Rangi Saari Gulaabi. Gulaab Gang, a perfect treat on the eve of International Women's Day.
