Koyelaanchal is packaged as a saga of the coal mafia of Dhanbad Jharkhand but is actually just another tale of how an honest government officer takes on a crime lord
Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India
Having interviewed Vinod Khanna a couple of years ago for Dabangg 2, I wondered why this actor wasn't doing more films. How many patriarch roles could Amitabh Bachchan do? It was time for some variety.So it's a delight to see Vinod Khanna in a central rol

Unknown, Mumbai Mirror
Koyelaanchal(meaning Coal Belt), is the story of a mafia lord Saryu Bhan Singh(Vinod Khanna) , the uncrowned king of Rajapur, a ravaged coal town, whose inhabitants have death haunting them from twin forces. The ever burning coal fields with black soot permeating the air they breath and consequently causing severe lung infections on one hand and on the other hand, there's Saryu Bhan Singh's adopted son, the lethal killer Karua(Vipinno) who doesn't need much prodding from his master to annihilate all opposition. Into this scenario is thrown in a righteous District Collector(Suneil Shetty) who wants to change the prevailing status quo but gets hampered by a near lethal attack on his family. The IB is called in to salvage the situation but Saryu Bhan Singh is indomitable and Karua, totally unhinged. So nothing goes as planned especially since the collector's son is under  Karua's forced protection.

Films with 'K' are slated for disaster, I guess. Just two weeks ago we were treated to KAANCHI, regressive cinema of the 90s. This week we have KOYELAANCHAL; another movie which gets us to visit the 90s kind of cinema, some of which were mindless amalgama
