Himmatwala is loud, puerile and so unfunny that it hurts

Himmatwala returns to his gaon to avenge his baap’s death. Here he meets sher sherni maa behen and other assorted creatures.

Devgn gives Himmatwala his best shot but stepping into the Jumping Jack’s boots while strutting around in the garb of a bone-crunching terminator can’t be easy. He is joined in the garish Taaki taaki and Nainon mein sapna routines by Tamannaah Bhatia. San

The original Himmatwala (1983) was no classic, but it remains iconic for the genre and era of films it has come to represent.

Late 70's & early 80's was unanimously ruled by Amitabh Bachchan over the box office. There were actors like Dharmendra, Rishi Kapoor and few others who too had their share of hits, but nowhere in competition to the superstar. The only actor who gave litt

The new age 21st century Himmatwala is a complete remake of the 1983 film. The story is about a poor and wronged woman’s son returns from the big city to avenge his father, a honest school teacher.

You need ample Himmat to watch the inane and mindless ham fest Himmatwala.

Himmatwala Review by Indicine critic Joginder Tuteja.
Indicine
It's just a slapstick entertainer for those wanting to grab a new movie every Friday
Smash Hits
‘Himmatwala’ is a remake of 1983 blockbuster starring Jitendra and Sridevi.  Sajid did not change the narrative, he kept intact the original plot-line and made the film protagonists, Ajay Devgn and Tamannah to dress and portray like Jeetendra and Sridevi.
Bollywood Mantra
Alas! it falls short of it and does not do any justice to the original movie.

A remake of 80's blockbuster with the same name starring Jeetendra and Sridevi was not really a cult classic but it established the trend of remaking South hits in Mumbai besides bestowing super stardom upon Sridevi.

On the whole, Himmatwala faces a supremely uphill task at the ticket-windows. It will do well initially at the single-screen cinemas but will not find favour with the multiplex audience. Without much support coming in from the younger generation, it will

Movie that just won’t quit. With a run time of (what feels like) 18 hours, it is a seizure-inducing montage of everything that was wrong with our movies from the ’80s. Including Ajay Devgn, who came soon after, and was okay with all vowels in his surname

To sum up, Himmatwala is not a perfect film, but it has that masala appeal that will certainly attract the masses rather than the classes. This film does not manage to successfully bring back the 1980s, yet there are many things about Himmatwala that make

Sajid Khan's Ajay DevganTamannah Bhatia starring remake of the 1983 Bollywood masala hit 'Himmatwala' is neither a drama nor a comedy. It 's somewhere in-between. The remake of such trash which heralded Sridevi's second coming and Jeetendra'refreshed innings could only have been distinctive if there was some grand idea behind it's rehash.
