Freaky Ali - Movie Reviews

It's a sports underdog movie where Nawazuddin Siddiqui gets to play a man from the wrong side of the tracks to win at a game meant for the idle rich. The story starts out to be great fun, but it becomes so repetitive in the middle that even the jokes are a drag and then dragged down by Bollywoodisation of the story: unsportsmanlike behavior, intervention by the gods, maa ka aashirvaad and big gangster with bigger heart...

If only this were a better film
Indian Express
Yeah he’s fun. What about the rich people around giving him lessons on “ameer and gareeb”, while he lands the hottest woman in the club, and the movie goes off course thereafter? Ah, we’re just faking Ali, no? Sadly, yes.

Freaky Ali is painfully dull
REDIFF
It was sad to see Siddiqui after such a brilliant work in RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 making a fool of himself
Glam Sham
The film's makers did not give two hoots about the film's script, which is why Freaky Ali ended up being two hours of zzzZZZzzzz..
India Today
Kishanlal (Asif Basra), known to Ali, sees this and coaxes Ali to train in the sport as he sees great potential in the man.

All the Nawazuddin Siddiqui fans are in for a treat

Rounding off, Freaky Ali is a sweet little comedy that's sure to put a smile on your lips. Nawazuddin's performance alone is worth the price of the ticket.

The film has many laughing moments, and trust me your stomach will hurt laughing at them
Cinema Glitz
Though it'€™s called Freaky Ali, Siddiqui'€™s Ali is the least freaky of all the characters and his performance is the only reason this film is not a complete washout
First Post
Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s outing on the golf course fails to score
Gulf News
In golf, you seldom see albatross. It’s a rare score where the player sinks his ball into the cup ‘three strokes below the par’ (meaning three strokes less than the par score of the hole). Extremely challenging.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui shows his acting chops once again. You needed an actor of his mettle to make this film believable and Nawaz once again proves that he is the man for the job

If you must watch it in the theater, take lots of boisterous friends with you and popcorn

Music of Freaky Ali isn't on expected lines
Bollywood Hungama
"Acchi aur sacchhi zindagi ka farak kya hai?" This dialogue in the film, which means what is the difference between a good and honest life, forms the crux of the narrative
Sify
Freaky Ali isn'€™t a satisfying film by a long shot, and that'€™s a terrible shame, given that the plot is good
Hindustan Times
Overall, “Freaky Ali” inspired by the English film, “Happy Gilmore”, entertains with its simplicity and raw Indian appeal.

Sajid-Wajid have been in fine fettle and our only complain is that the OST ends ever so quickly
Filmfare
Freaky Ali has a few moments of comic mirth that will make you crack a smile, but the film, overall, sputters and drags all the way to the final hole
