A Flying Jatt doesn'€™t aim to be anything more than an entertaining cartoon
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
The smitten girl act that Jacqueline is called upon to perform is hopelessly over the top, but it is well in keeping with the rest of the film, which, as it title warns, never has its feet on the ground.

Feels Like a Slog Because It's Amateurishly Executed

It ends poorly, sure, and has some clumsy moments on the way, but as a children’s film, A Flying Jatt goes a helluva lot further than those Krrish things

I’m going with one and a half out five.

A young lad becomes a superhero and defeats a big baddie and not only wins hearts but also the girl. Good plot, right? But it has been 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.
Manisha Lakhne, Nowrunning
This film is basically an attempt at big-screen entertainment aimed purely at kids. This is, as you know, a super-hero movie -- a comical one with an environmental message. And one can, somewhat, sense a franchise developing around the character

D’Souza borrows liberally from the X-Men and Superman franchises, and puts in enough tropes to give his superhero enough of an Indian soul, making sure the next film in this franchise becomes a reality.
Spectacular super-hero start for Tiger Shroff

With lessons about religious affinity and ill-effects of environmental pollution, a superhero and comic elements, the movie will be enjoyed by kids, and grown-ups will like it if they are willing to overlook the flaws.

A Flying Jatt 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.

A Flying Jatt, is the story of the local superhero of the same name. Apart from the name, there is nothing original about the film. The character, chiselled on the lines of the DC Comics fictional character Superman, is an Indianised version of the superhero which includes his traits and costume

I had a sneaking suspicion that the best thing about this film would be the ‘Beat pe booty’ song. Unfortunately, I was completely right. There is nothing watchable in Remo’s flight of fantasy, except this very peppy number and Jacky’s glistening skin.

A Flying Jatt' is passable kid stuff

On the whole, A FLYING JATT has the ingredients that make an interesting superhero film. A section of the audience might find the film's proceedings to be corny; however, the mass audiences and kids might take a liking for the film. At the Box-Office, the film has the potential to fly, though, not to great heights. The extended weekend will help the film reap dividends at the Box-Office.

Overall, the director seems to have lost the plot after the second act, as the narrative meanders making the entire comic affair agonising.
