Honestly, you need real courage to brave this one

Hindustan Times

A busy, crowded film but one that's deathly dull in the final reckoning

Expectedly, it’s all very over-the-top

I expected Himmatwala to be predictable. I also expected it to be annoying, and it doesn't disappoint on both scores. But I didn't think it would be so dull

Indian Express

Himmatwala 2013 retains every bit of the tacky swagger that worked 30 years ago

Himmatwala certainly isn't any brave attempt at filmmaking. You need some guts to sit through it though

Times of India

To put in perspective how bad Himmatwala is, in comparison Housefull is a masterpiece

Mumbai Mirror

A parody that does no justice to the original film or the efforts of its lead actor and comedian

Filmfare

Sajid Khan's passion for the 80s kitsch is entertaining to begin with, but gets suffocating after a point

Times of India

Himmatwala is a mindless potpourri that brings together the worst ingredients of 1980s Hindi cinema and parlays them into a messy mélange that quivers repeatedly under its own weight

You need ample Himmat to watch the inane and mindless ham fest Himmatwala

Himmatwala fails as a film
