It's a story that leaves you inspired and shows the power of the human mind. Iqbal is not only about cricket.
Deepti Patwardhan, Rediff 
Nagesh Kukunoor should be a happy man now as 'Iqbal' bridges a gap between so called offbeat films and commercial cinema. The man associated with niche movies like Hyderabad Blues, Rockford, Bollywood Calling and 3 Deewarein gets the biggest release of his career, courtesy some strong backing by Subhash Ghai, the producer, who has left no stone unturned to make the movie reach out to its target audience. And it has to be admitted that it has everything for those who want to watch a different story told in a simple yet highly entertaining manner. This is where Iqbal scores and becomes highly commercial viable cinema too!
