Gour Hari Dastaan - Top Reviews

The film, based on real events, tells us the touching tale of freedom fighter Gour Hari Das, and his struggle to get an official acknowledgement of his participation in the freedom struggle
Sonia Chopra, Sify
Owing to its undeniably relevant theme, Gour Hari Dastaan does have some archival value. If only it had more to offer, it would have come far closer to being the triumph that it – and its subject – deserved to be.
Gour Hari Dastaan review: The film is listless and lacks in drama
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Also, the side tracks and dragging screenplay dilute the impact of this well intended saga, which had the potential to become a fine cinema.
Divya Solgama, Moviez Adda

A piously told meaningful, heartfelt, and probing tale of 'Freedom' we enjoy, complain and the 'Freedom' for what those brave hearts fought for us..

A biopic needs to be engaging, but in 'Gour Hari Dastaan', more attention seems to have been paid to the dialogues than the storytelling
