Well Done Abba Overall Critics Rating – 5.7/10 (Average)
Well Done Abba IMDB Users Rating – 7.6/10
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 3/5
The film remains a fine black comedy, which could only disappoint in parts for its weakened pace, or the director’s discomfort with a soundtrack to help with the movie’s commerce
Anupama Chopra (NDTV) 2.5/5
The end result is that Well Done Abba is heart-felt and intermittently funny but not flat-out delightful like Benegal’s last film Welcome to Sajjanpur. You need oodles of patience to enjoy this one
Gaurav Malani (IndiaTimes) 3/5
Despite being a trail and tribulation journey, Benegal’s direction has a feel-good charm to it
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times Of India) 4/5
The film is a sheer delight, with the events unfolding in a breezy, comic vein which keeps the ribs relentlessly tickling
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 2.5/5
On the whole, WELL DONE ABBA! has some wonderful moments, but they’re few and far between. It holds appeal for a tiny sect of viewers, mainly Shyam Benegal fans.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 2.5/5
There is much to appreciate about this film, but it demands solid patience on your part.
Meeta Kabra (wogma) 3/5
We live in corrupt times and how?! Well done Abba reminds us of that and more. It reminds us of the gravity, the irony and our own submissiveness to the whole do. Would have worked much better if it were about an hour shorter.
Sonia Chopra (Sify) 3/5
a bare look at contemporary rural India complete with all its unique challenges and nuances. And told with the Benegal stamp of folding in humour with comment. Don’t miss it.
Elvis D Silva (Rediff) 3/5
this is a film for hardcore Boman Irani and Shyam Benegal fans. The former will not be disappointed. The latter… it is a tougher call.
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2/5
Watch it for a village that feels like a village, not something created on a Filmcity set, like the air-brushed trying-too-hard-for-rusticity Sajjanpur. And for Boman Irani’s excellent performance.
