Patiala House Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 4/5
It’s a compelling watch, more for its drama and histriics than anything else
Anupama Chopra (NDTVMovies.com) 2.5/5
It is an old-fashied Hindi movie with big drama, solid dialogue-baazi and moments that are genuinely moving and rousing
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 1.5/5
Plotted like those kitchen-sink dramas of the 90s, ‘Patiala House’ is loud and melodramatic, and shamelessly tries to manipulate you into shedding tears.This film may work for those who miss old-fashioned melodramatic entertainers, but I was bored, Decide for yourself if it’s your cup of tea.
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
Watch this family drama for its redefinition of patriotism in a going-global age, dominated by the growing Indian diaspora.
Rachit Gupta (Filmfare) 3/5
Patiala House has its emotional moments and it also has moments that make you cringe. But at the end of it, the film serves up enough happiness and drama to warm the cockles of your heart.
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2.5/5
till, there’s enough that’s enjoyable in the film. The writing is smart, the lines are life-like, the characters feel right. The supporting cast is especially good.
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 2/5
It’s all good, this Patiala peg. Just chug de phatte! We’re all about Bollywood and cricket ‘n’ all, innit?
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 3/5
The foolhardiness works purely the strength of Akshay’s vulnerability and restraint.
Aniruddha Guha (DNA India) 3/5
Give the film a shot if formulaic melodrama is your thing. Patiala House has it in abundance
K.K Rai (Stardust India) 2.5/5
The situations of the film, especially father-son relationship, have been taken straight from life and that makes it identifiable for most moviegoers. Above average flick.
Pankaj Sabnani (Glamsham.com) 3/5
PATIALA HOUSE is a heart-warming drama. Do pay a visit to this house with your family. A fun time is guaranteed.
Blessy Chettiar (DNA India) 3/5
For a Bollywood- and cricket-crazy country, Patiala House seems like a dream that marries both off with aplomb… patialvi style.
Sonia Chopra (SifyMovies) 2/5
It’s a decent cocktail, but how many times are viewers expected to order the same thing?
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 3/5
With lines written in Yash Chopra land–kal chup ek biwi thi, aaj bol ek maa rahi hai; and gaaliyon ka shor taaliyon main chhup jayega–and enough cricket to keep the kids happy, this is a family drama for the family.
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 1.5/5
Watch it but be prepared to be bowled over by Rishi Kapoor, not Akshay Kumar!, Patiala House is an ordinary fare which will face an uphill task at the box-office. It has taken a very dull start and that will tell on its ultimate tally at the box-office.
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 2/5
Patiala House may not be as much of a travesty as Nikhil Advani’s Chandni Chowk to China, but it’s not anywhere close to evoking a thumbs-up either.
Ashok Nayak (NowRunning.com) 3/5
Patiala House is the 90’s family melodrama at its best. If such movies appeal to you, book yourself a ticket, you won’t be disappointed.
