"The axe forgets, but the tree remembers"— these ominous words_x000D_ begin our story
Sonia Chopra, Sify
What you mainly take away from this movie is its core; a story (written by Sriram Raghavan) that tells us that most often the situation is the villain. And, perhaps, each of us is capable of turning a criminal when faced with an extreme situation.
Badlapur is all fury and fog, a revenge saga that plays out with great  eyebrow-singeing intensity
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Brisk and absorbing, concluding differently than expected, Badlapur is an inspired film that dangerously attempts to change the landscape of the thriller genre in Bollywood.
Mohar Basu, Times of India
Badlapur review: You are hooked by the beginning, the rest of the tale is choppy
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Many might find the movie too slow or bland for the genre, whereas few might find it too dark and bold as per the level of Indian films. Nevertheless, good cinema lovers will love to see 'Badlapur' for attempting something different, which also marks a mild evolution of our desi revenge drama type of films in our Hindi cinema.
Divya Solgama, Moviez Adda
I’m going with three-and-a-half out of five for Badlapur. Welcome back, Sriram Raghavan; Agent Vinod has been forgotten!
Rajeev Masand, Rajeev Masand
Sriram Raghavan has crafted his characters with care, highlighting how grey each character is: there is no place for the black and white in this film. Who do you sympathise with? Who is the real victim?
Rummana Ahmed, Yahoo India
Exhilarating performances, stellar storytelling… Great film!

Badlapur, a little after one of the best executed opening scenes in Indian cinema
Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu
Film should do good business and anything close to 35-40 cr nett will be a good result.Go for this one if you are a fan of intense dark thriller with adult content!
The characters that it portrays and the performances of the actors make it a definitely good one.
If you've seen the trailer, you know that the film gets pretty gory
Amodini, Planet Bollywood
Raghvan handles the genre well and he gets the best out of his actors.He is back with an action thriller and that's what he does best! Va

Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur has been on people’s mind a lot over the past few weeks
Raw and gritty, this revenge drama is a must-watch cinematic fare
Bindu Rai, Emirates 24X7
It's a difficult and uncomfortable watch, and some of the gratuitous violence is a little hard to digest, but overall its fast paced, and somewhat unique plot and stellar performances by Dhawan and Siddiqui rescue it from becoming just another run of the mill tale of one up-manship and vengeance

The axe forgets; The tree remembers. Director Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur starts off with this African proverb, clearly setting the tone of the film to be a revengeful saga
Subramanian Harikumar, BollywoodLife
An exceptional bold and gritty criss cross between revenge sagas and morality dramas Sriram Raghavan’s ‘Badlapur’ produced by Maddock Films and presented by Eros is a film which is impossible to be dismissed.

It’s in theaters now, so if you want to see a change in the quality of Bollywood products, buy a ticket or two.

Never mind that his last outing, Agent Vinod (2007), disappeared without a whimper. Badlapur was touted to be Raghavan's comeback film, a revenge drama seldom seen on Indian screens.
Sriram Raghavan sticks to his deep, intense and realistic style of filmmaking this time, offering the audience a topnotch movie experience.The violent scenes in 'Badlapur' may not please everyone, but the film is a must-watch for aficionados of film noir, thanks to no-nonsense direction and powerful performances by the lead actors Nawazuddin and Varun Dhawan
After his not-so-successful drama Agent Vinod, Sriram Raghavan is back with a revenge drama in the name of Badlapur
Neha Prashar Gupta, Bollywood3
But as a product of his favourite genre, noir, it doesn't have the cleverness, pace and overall appeal of Johnny Gaddaar and Ek Hasina Thi

The movie may not have won as many awards like Irrfan Khan’s Qissa, which is the other release this week, but the film has definitely marketed itself really well
Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui shine in this violent revenge drama
As if it is the aakhri raasta! What if the avenger is bereft of his most potent weapon, or connection with the audience, midway?

Revengeful indeed!

This tale of retribution served over 15 years is one that should not be missed
Rachana, Chirtamala
The film’s trailer has been made from all the promising scenes and overall the film is a tad bit disappointing.
Badlapur movie is an action oriented film in which Varun Dhawan will be playing a baddie and Yami Gautam will essay his wife in the movie.

Raghav gives her food for thought when he asks her, ''What about those who have been affected by the crime?'' If you have the tensile strength to absorb gore, go for it.
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
Badlapur is not everyone’s regular coffee, it’s black coffee! This film deals with dark humor and so if your taste buds can enjoy bloody revenges, you will savor this as a delicacy.
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
Good performances in an intense story directed by an accomplished director.
Núria Bonals Hidalgo, BollySpice
Badlapur is a breathtaking, thrilling piece of cinema that marks a scintillating return to form for director Sriram Raghavan. Bolstered by brilliant performances from Varun Dhawan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the film is a must-watch for both the discerning and the average movie-goers.
Piyush Chopra, Nowrunning
Probe deeper, and you will find that Raghavan questions the genre and turns it on its head, and asks uncomfortable questions
