Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
The end result is that Well Done Abba is heart-felt and intermittently funny but not flat-out delightful like Benegal’s last film Welcome to Sajjanpur. You need oodles of patience to enjoy this one. I recommend that you wait for the DVD so you can speed u

Well Done Abba is clever and hard-hitting. You can’t ignore it simply because it is so different. If you’re a fan of political and social satire, WDA is a great watch. If you’re looking for a good feel good film sans the boring slapstick, once again Well

Shyam Benegal the pioneer of 'middle cinema' does it again. 'Well Done Abba' is a double whammy. After the success of 'Welcome to Sajjanpur' Shyam in this light heartner, again uses strong intelligent repartee rather than the usual buffoonery and slapstick prevalent in many Bollywood comedies giving us a major relief once again.

Despite its staid unattractive look and sometimes lumbering narrative Well Done Abba deserves to be seen and appreciated since it is truly from the heartland and heart of our country.
