Guddu Rangeela - Movie Reviews

Barring the stray rough edges, Guddu Rangeela is eminently watchable.
I hoped Matajee was wrong about Guddu Rangeela. But are the gods ever wrong?
Well, this movie has a good first half, decent music and enjoyable performances by its lead actors. It's only due to the slow narrative part, weak climax and a bit weak screenplay in the second half of the film, the movie ends up being mixed shades of dramedy, which had the full potential to become colourfully good.
Moviez Adda
Uninspired writing in run-of-the-mill action comedy
Film Fare
An action-drama diluted by too much quirkiness
BaradwajRangan
Rather colourless!
Sify
Despite roping in good performers, Subash Kapoor’s second feature is dreadfully formulaic, and unoriginal
Emirates 24X7
I’m going with two out of five
Rajeev Masand
Starring Arshad Warsi and Amit Sadh, the movie is fashioned as a jaunty ride through Jatland, a theme currently all the rage in Bollywood
Indian Express
Ronit Roy is brilliant; only if he had a better character sketch he could have taken this film a notch above
Yet, Guddu Rangeela never quite soars
Rediff
The film is weighed down by a lousy script that squanders all potential
IBN Live
In a nut shell, Guddu Rangeela is a good entertainer with a balanced mixture of humour, action, drama and a social message. Worth a watch.
Filmi Beat
Subhash Kapoor's tale of betrayal and revenge, with Arshad Warsi and Amit Sadh, works in parts.
India Today
A sincere attempt that is bogged down by multiple sub-plots
Book My Show
With Guddu Rangeela, he handles the subject of honour killings -  a plague that still haunts many rural areas of India. Does he surprise us again? He does, unfortunately, not in a nice way!
BollywoodLife
This could have been a fun, breezy film rooted in a milieu that often throws disturbing questions at us, but ends up coming across as too convenient and banal.
First Post
Average Film backed by confusing plot and poor direction
Just Bollywood
It is these characters and performances that keep us engaged when the writing loses its bite. Not as jolly as Kapoor’s last outing but has enough meat to last a meal.
The Hindu
Soon, the money they are going to get for the kidnapping is raised from some lakh rupees to several crores.
KomalsReviews
A heinous villain and a few smart plot twists though aren't good enough to take you to the theater, though, right? '
Wogma
On the whole, GUDDU RANGEELA is quite 'colourless' and offers nothing new.
Bollywood Hungama
Journalist-turned-filmmaker Subhash Kapoor, auteur of films such as Phas Gaye Re Obama and Jolly LLB, is back with Guddu Rangeela, a film that tries hard to present Haryana as the perfect premise for a 'desi' western.
Bollywood.Com
Watch it only if you have nothing better to do this weekend
Friday Moviez
Guddu Rangeela isn’t the kind of film one goes to watch without expectations
The Hindu
The story is a revenge drama. Though there is no such fresh formula in it, the screenplay and the comedy timing make the script unique. But still it literally takes the path of the past Bollywood flicks like Ishaqzaade, Boss and NH10. The picturization of the songs elevates the music more. The narration was concentrated mainly on maintaining the fun throughout the film and so misses a proper logic in many scenes. Director Subhash Kapoor was successful in bringing out a regualr revenge drama by applying the fun masala.
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
In spite of such minor flaws in logic, Guddu Rangeela is still a decent onetime watch, thanks to the well-planned hodgepodge of comedy, social message and action
Sulekha
Revenge is not always the purest emotion
Hindustan Times
The film works, albeit on some level, because of its gritty writing. What could have genuinely raised the bar though, is a slicker pace, additional gloss and superstar charisma.
Times of India
So overall, the movie is good and fine and worth watch at least once. This is ou Guddu Rangeela Review
Cine Report
Shame, the middle doesn't hold up.
Deccan Chronicle
Guddu Rangeela could've been great had Subhash Kapoor stuck to making a satire that tried to do something about the appalling backwardness of our hinterlands. Instead, we get a middling and uninspired action comedy that's neither entertaining nor enlightening.

Arnab’s show is a better bet.

अगर आपको समाज के गहन मुद्दे, चुटकुले और कॉमेडी पसंद नहीं है, तो इस फिल्म को न देखें.
Guddu Rangeela movie is about two cousins GUDDU (Amit Sadh) and RANGEELA (Arshad Warsi) run a small-town orchestra party while moonlighting as informants
Filmi Beat
GUDDU RANGEELA is entertaining no doubt, but lacks that special Kapoor touch!
Glam Sham
The repetitive and mediocre movie has way too many sub plots

Khap.. khap.. a non 'hitting' tequila snub.. 'Jolly LLB' honored Subash Kapoor's faces a 'killing' of his 'guroor' (pride) in this mostly a Bandh Bheja Baraat that has nothing new to offer either by content or style.
India Glitz
Ronit Roy is brilliant; only if he had a better character sketch he could have taken this film a notch above
JAGRAN
Though Guddu Rangeela is far from perfect, it gets props for doing something different
BookMyShow
A jugalbandi that is out of sync
Deccan Chronicle
The film doesn’t underestimate your IQ as most Hindi films do. Watch it if you have got nothing to do on the weekend.
Masala
Laced with earthy humour and driven by revenge, it is an entertainer that emanates from the disturbing social reality of honour killing and to his credit Kapoor, for the most part, manages to seamlessly blend the two
The Hindu
Course of the second half with an overstretched climax.
Koi Moi
Subhash Kapoor’s “Guddu Rangeela” is one of those films that are middling, unremarkable, and trivialize a serious matter.
