Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...provides clean entertainment - with its innocence, it evokes more Haathi Mere Saathi and less cool-cat Krrish.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has the ingredients that make an interesting superhero film.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...repetitive gags, animated flashbacks and a misplaced sense of patriotism numb you to their impact.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Since he also has a healthy stash of Hollywood DVDs, it’s clear that this Indian superhero is set for a bright future.

  • ...is meant for kids. If grown-ups don't mind doing the fabled "leave the brain outside the home and enjoy" routine before stepping into the theatre, they will not mind A Flying Jatt.

    Critic rating (?)

  • This could have been such a rollicking film, especially for kids —it had all the ingredients, and an engaging start, fronted by a hero who is light on his feet. Too bad it ends up being a promo for Swachch Bharat.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...begins on a good note, picks up the pace, throws some light-hearted moments, and then faces the curse of the second half. It drags its feet from becoming the smart film just when it’s needed and goes for the all-explaining commentary.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • The problem with A Flying Jatt is its lack of faith in its own originality, which is why director Remo D’Souza ends up -- like Amrita Singh -- cribbing from superhero films we already know and love.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • A preachy school play that could have meant more. A film that will get “well-intended, heart in the right place” nominations.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...Remo in his free style filmmaking inspired from free style dancing seems to have put together an amalgamation of assorted inspirations that were never assembled into one coherent storyline.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • You’ll have to be a superhero to bear this one. Strictly meant for Tiger Shroff fans.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a super powered embarrassment.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film’s comedy, occasional inventiveness and aura of innocence are what make it effective in its own way, despite the lack of depth.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • I’m merely glad this is at least an attempt at big-screen entertainment aimed purely at kids. How many homegrown options do we have anyway? Most adults, I’m afraid, won’t give a flying duck.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is the world’s first environmental-PSA-disguised-as-a-superhero-film...

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The lowbrow comic-strip spirit of A Flying Jatt extends to the film's rough-hewn production design. Nothing that appears on the screen, neither the houses nor the props, looks real.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...so needlessly Bollywoodised with a song and dance and everything seems to be happening so slowly you lose patience with it, despite some genuinely funny moments.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Weighed down by a script bursting with clichés, an assembly line of cardboard characters, and tacky special effects and production design, A Flying Jatt never emerges the crackling homegrown superhero film it so easily could’ve been.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...doesn’t fly and sinks without a trace.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is derivative, sloppily structured and, especially in its latter stages, tacky beyond belief. That it might also be the best Indian superhero film ever (barring Mr India, if that qualifies) is an indication of how low the bar is set.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • A clunky script, comic book flat characters and a wafer-thin plot are propped up by needless song-n-dance routines, juvenile SFX and innumerable fights and confrontations.
