If only Gupta had gone a little easy on the unnecessary and intrusive melodrama. Even then, it’s a good one time watch for sure
Watch this if you must for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who’s still in top form. Pity her comeback film doesn’t measure up to her efforts.
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
But good luck protecting your eyes and ears from this sensory overload

Jazbaa, however, is just as much, if not more, Irrfan Khan’s film
Jazbaa review: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has over played in this convoluted, over-plotted crime-drama
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
With Help From Shabana & Irrfan Aishwarya Makes A Grand Comeback
While Jazbaa is not inspired by a true story, it attempts to highlight the issue of sexual assault on women. As a commentary on the same, Jazbaa, which is often regressive itself, fails terribly
Sonia Chopra, Sify
A mostly watchable thriller, Jazbaa is marred by its director Sanjay Gupta’s penchant for excesses
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
Jazbaa is a mercifully brief movie, just about two hours long, but that’s about it in terms of the good part
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Aishwarya Rai's comeback 'Jazbaa' is underwhelming

फिल्म में दो ही गीतों को रखा गया है जो की सही कदम है। कुल मिलाकर फिल्म संजय गुप्ता की बेहतरीन फिल्मों में से एक है। फिल्म फास्ट-पेसड है और अंत तक आपको बांधे रखती है।

All you care about is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who shows so much sincerity that you wish she had worked with another Sanjay who brought out the best in her in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.

azbaa is an edge of the seat thriller which has a lot of drama and emotions. This one is a must watch adrenalin incurring, electrifying and at places a spine chilling thriller film.

The most striking thing about Sanjay Gupta’s film is the perfect dramatization of scenes which engages the viewers all the way to the climax of this well paced thriller.JAZBAA is a captivating thriller with good performances that make it a must watch film this fall season

On the whole, Jazbaa will fail to deliver at the box-office and will entail losses to all concerned. Class audiences may find the film interesting but that will just not be enough.

Finally Sanjay Gupta gave his best to Jazbaa and brought out a fine realistic entertainer and gave a grand comeback to the India’s pride Aishwarya Rai.
Aravind, Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Had Irrfan not ended the film with the regressive "Mohabbat thi isliye jaane diya...zid hoti toh baahon mein hoti…”, we could’ve considered being kinder. Hoots aside, get some perspective commercial cinema!
Pink Villa
We give Jazbaa 3.5/5 Stars not for story but for acting of Aishwarya and Irrfan Khan
ASHISH AGRAWAL, The Reporter Times
Director Sanjay Gupta treats this very difficult film with lot of maturity and delivers a gripping thriller. What is even more commendable about the film is the fast pace treatment and entertaining performances.

On the whole, Jazbaa is a captivating thriller with top notch performances that make it a decent watch this weekend. If the length of the movie and a few dragged scenes can be over looked, Jazbaa is definitely worth a watch.

Director Sanjay Gupta has successfully adapted foreign films in the past, and he has done it again. Jazbaa, a remake of Korean film Seven Days, gives wings to his imagination and he dreams the Maximum City in saturated colours.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan returns to Bollywood after a five-year sabbatical with Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa
Tushar Joshi, BollywoodLife
Sanjay Gupta’s remake of a Korean hit is designed as a comeback vehicle for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, but Irrfan holds sway all the way.
Nandini Ramnath, Scroll.In
Yep, you can hold the coffee mug close, hold your life close too. I am not sure if you should come anywhere close to Jazbaa.
Lokesh Dharmani, Masala
Irrfan Khan fans will certainly enjoy.

Featuring strong performances, combined with an engaging story and stunning cinematography, Jazbaa is a thorough entertainer

And the day arrived when finally our most gorgeous diva of BTown Aishwarya Rai Bachchan graced the big screen with 'Jazbaa'. For days and months together, excitement had been building over this Sanjay Gupta's directorial, the man who gave us good thrills with 'Kaante' and 'Shootout At Wadala' to name a few. The trailer looked promising - with good dose of punch dialogues, brilliant star cast, suspense filled plot.... But at last.... It's just a mere bubbly burst with no solid content...

Overall, JAZBAA is a well-made film true to its genre. It has a message and it has a motive!
