Gabbar is Back - Movie Reviews

If only there would be a strong soul and a great writing attached to the film, the impact of the film would had been as much powerful as the character of Gabbar from the film 'Sholay'
Moviez Adda
A college professor Aditya (Akshay Kumar) doubles up as Gabbar, a mysterious entity, who kidnaps corrupt officials and even murders some of them to set an example.Ok. So why did the filmmakers choose the name 'Gabbar', who is one of Indian film's most famous out-and-out villain?
Watch Gabbar Is Back only if you are a diehard Akshay Kumar fan.
Stay away from theatres, I’d say. 50-kos away, even
Not surprisingly, your migraine’s back too!
Rajeev Masand
Don’t ask how. Just go for his bearded ,brooding leadership qualities. Swach Bharat needs such a hero.
Akshay Kumar does everything he’s done before
Indian Express
The only saving grace of this film is Akshay Kumar, who not only looks dishy with a beard, but does try giving a convincing performance in this not at all convincing film
Swach Bharat needs such a hero
One more uninspiring South remake
Stay away from theatres, I’d say. 50-kos away, even
Unfortunately Krish damages the reputation that ‘Sholay’ lend the legend
Emirates 24X7
They get their bang for the buck – typical Bollywood-style masala dialogues, full-on action and a superfluous item number thrown in to cater to our mass audience
Yahoo India
This Gabbar is meant strictly for the masala-of-yore fan
DNA India
If you take a closer look at Akshay Kumar’s recent films, you’ll realise he is positioning himself as the brand new champion of the crusade against corruption.
Gabbar Is Back is a full on ‘masala’ film with a lot of applause worthy scenes. The buck stops at Akshay Kumar.
Hindustan Times
If you enjoy films which have the good vs evil story with full on action and ‘Dhamakedaar’ dialogues, this is your film
Koi Moi
In spite of being a remake movie, Gabbar Is Back is the best version ever made
Filmi Beat
Without Akshay Kumar, it would have been a 'scream-play'
India TV News
Whoever said "it's the thought that matters" clearly didn't have to sit through the 2+ hours of faux vigilantism that is Gabbar is Back. The idea behind it might've been right, but the treatment is all wrong.
Now Running
Despite the flaws and gimmicks, ‘Gabbar is Back’ simultaneously entertains and makes us think. Recommended!
Potpourri of Vestiges
‘Gabbar Is Back’ finds the ideal icon in Akshay Kumar to spearhead it’s on screen crusade against corruption
India Glitz
Too cliched but enjoyable in bits
Deccan Chronicle
And, the film is as good as the original Tamil version
Kitne aadmi the?...asked the iconic villain Gabbar to his shivering cronies. 'Do sarkar', I am tempted to tell him hoping that he takes the writer of this film, (Rajat Aroraa) and the director (Krish) into his den and gives them his dose of 'Iski Sajaa milegi, barabbar milegi' for attempting to taint his name.
It is purely a ‘masala’ fare and fails to generate any excitement or empathy.
But then, reel life and real life never complement each other. This one is a mass entertainer!
Glam Sham
Akshay Kumar film is shrouded in righteousness, but lacks soul
If you are sick and tired of corruption in India, then, you shall find GABBAR IS BACK inspiring, else you may find it boring and preachy.
Bollywood Hungama
Watch it for right combo of entertainment and content
Box Office Capsule
While it doesn’t seem so, this is personal for Gabbar. He has one target and that is his mission.
Aditya takes the builder head on but the powerful Patil attacks him so brutally that he is presumed dead.
Gabbar is back under the direction of Krish. It sounds like some superhero combo. It indeed is.
The Hindu
Director Krish chooses to focus on the rather tired theme of vigilante justice, and names his hero after Hindi cinema’s most notorious villain
On a whole, Gabbar Is Back is good only in bits and pieces, however if you are types that loves masala movies, this one can be given a shot

Once again Akshay Kumar is back with his second movie in 2015 called Gabbar Is Back
Just Bollywood
The film is a remake of AR Murugadoss' Ramanaa, and is not linked to the iconic Gabbar in any manner
India Today
Akshay Kumar remakes a Telegu version of a Tamil film and it's a disaster
First Post
Yet, the film is a one-time watch. Akshay Kumar fans will love it, yes. As for the others, take a well-thought out call
