This week, just forget about Gods and aliens. Just go have a good time watching an unpretentious unapologetic masala film
A young pair that’s on the run

The movie is like a filmy bhaagam bhaag, where a small kid too knows that everything will happen only in the end of the film and the rest is mostly a waste of time.
Divya Solgama, Moviez Adda
Arjun Kapoor does a backslide to his ‘Gunday-Ishaqzaade’ mode
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Old and tired storytelling in a slick new package
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
It only shows intermittent flashes of talent
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
There’s little to cheer about Sonakshi’s solitary expression and lifeless chemistry with Arjun that makes for nearly three hours of the movie
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
The charm of a small-town setting, brutal politicians, instant love, heroic hero, distressed heroine, item songs, regressive storyline, dumb developments, and an all’s well ending
Sonia Chopra, Sify
Tevar emerges an overdone, underwhelming film with zero charm
Raja Sen, Rediff
Superman Arjun Kapoor, baahubali Manoj Bajpayee swing your mind!
Ritika Handoo, Zee News India
Watch it if you miss those old '80s masala no-brainers, or if you are an Arjun Kapoor fan
Had director Sharma tweeked the storyline and injected charm and passion into it, it might’ve turned things around. It’s unfortunate, he didn’t.
Sneha May Francis, Emirates 24X7
Tevar is somewhat tolerable only as long as Bajpayee is on the screen, or when Raj Babbar, as the hero's police officer-father, and Subrat Dutta, as the villain's principal henchman, are allowed to do their bit

Tevar is pure and unapologetic commercial cinema served on a glossy platter
Sarita A Tanwar, DNA India
Although, the movie is a remake and is seen by many in both Telugu and Tamil, Tevar is just Tevariffic and you will ENJOY it!!

Why you should watch the film?If you’re an Arjun Kapoor fan and want to see him in Salman’s shoes, Tevar is for you!Check out what the people have to say…
Vidula Menge, BookMyShow
Tevar is a typical Bollywood flick that entertains for most part, despite the predictable plot
Vidula Menge, Book My Show
Anyways the remake of the 2003 ‘Okkadu’ starring Mahesh Babu does keep the masala loving regulars involved with its persistent dose of raw action and winning performance from Arjun, Sonakshi and Bajpayee
Vishal Verma, India Glitz
Take 100 grams of Arnold Schwarzenegger and mix it with 75 grams of Sylvester Stallone. Sprinkle Salman Khan as per your taste and you'll find yourself staring at Ghanshyam aka Pintu (Arjun Kapoor). This is what the protagonist of Tevar thinks of himself.
Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Manoj Bajpai kick off the new year with a stink bomb

Tevar is highly overrated and a saga of repertoire with extra commercial content. Strictly for masala lovers, who love extra spice in their movies! Thumbs Up: Cinematography Thumbs down: Oh, I don’t know how to sum up Yawns: Guaranteed
A total 'paisa vasool' film!

Great Andhra
Even someone as talented as Manoj Bajpayee can’t redeem the film’s stock Bollywood characters
Arjun Kapoor-Sonakshi Sinha's film lacks imagination
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
Tevar, ironically, lacks attitude and spunk. Watch it only for Manoj Bajpayee
Lokesh Dharmani, Masala
Tevar is more attitude than substance.Latest News from Entertainment News Desk
This film will win everyone who loves to watch the South action films. For me, the film had nothing extraordinary other than Manjoj Bajpai’s class act
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
Composers Sajid-Wajid bring their knowledge of hardcore Indian music into play and give Tevar's music a different flavour, says Joginder Tuteja/ Rediff.comThis year has been quite good for Arjun Kapoor as far as the music of his films is concerned.After chartbuster tracks in Gunday and 2 States comes his home production Tevar. The romantic action drama provides ample scope for good music.The album starts with Superman, from Sajid-Wajid. The lyrics are by Sajid, Kausar Munir and Danish Sabri.A fi
Overall, this is a film which has been packaged with the right kind of commercial masala that would appease the audience so success at the box office looks imminent.

It is she and her portrayal as a woman who can do nothing but stand and watch helplessly as men fight over her that are Tevar’s biggest disappointments
Shilpa Jamkhandikar, Reuters India
The charm of the original flick seems to have been lost in translation and ‘Tevar’ arrives more than 11 years too late. ‘Tevar’ has absolutely nothing new to offer.
Bollywood Mantra
Old plot, new package. Arjun's performance reminds of his first film Ishqzaade.
On the whole, TEVAR is a stylised masala entertainer that'll give you enough reasons to have a good time in the cinema hall. Tevar is worth your time. Go for it!
Bollywood Hungama
Just go have a good time watching an unpretentious unapologetic masala film
In nutshell, Tevar can be called a big release of 2015.
Just Bollywood
Yawns: Guaranteed

Tevar has too little attitude and lesser in the name of entertainment
Suhani Singh, India Today
The glut in between forms a crevice deeper than the Grand Canyon; a perfect fit for Tevar's inexplicable lack of attitude.
Rahul Desai, Mumbai Mirror
He has been in the industry for a couple of years but Arjun Kapoor makes an entry into the big league this week
Anuj Kumar, The Hindu
Bollywood 2015 is greeted by ‘Tevar’ (attitude) that sticks to worship the tried tested and trusted massy affair. Anyways the remake of the 2003 ‘Okkadu’ starring Mahesh Babu does keep the masala loving regulars involved with its persistent dose of raw action and winning performance from Arjun, Sonakshi and Bajpayee that help in distracting its target audience from its over the top, too convenient and easy plot. However the length and the baffling climax reduces the impact hinting a hitch in its expected box office pinch.

Watch this film for Arjun Kapoor’s action avatar!
Namrata Thakker, Bollywood Life
अर्जुन कपूर अपनी एक्टिंग की दम पर फैन बनाने में कामयाब रहे हैं। वहीं सोनाक्षी के प्रशंसक भी काफी हैं, लेकिन इन सब के साथ मनोज बाजपेयी की एक्टिंग आपको पसंद आएगी। ऐसे में फिल्म देखने के लिए एक बार पैसा खर्च किया जा सकता है।
Sadly the year starts with a disappointing film. The good thing however is that the quality of films can only go up from here.
Rohit Khilnani, India Today
Anybody up for a commercial masala flick at the beginning of the year can consider watching Tevar. For the likes of me, there's better to come, hopefully
