Bollywood Hungama - Taran Adarsh's Rating: 4
Bol Bachchan is a dhamaal entertainer that has the Rohit Shetty stamp all over it. A film that pays homage to the cinema of 1970s and 1980s, especially the ones made by Manmohan Desai. Big stars, big visuals, big entertainment, Bol Bachchan has it all.
Oneindia - Nabanita's Rating: 4
Bol Bachchan won't disappoint you. You are going to watch comedy, drama, lots of comic action and flying cars! Devgn's witty dialogues would definitely leave you yelling, whistling, giggling and applauding in the theatres.
Times of India - Gaurav Malani's Rating: 3.5
For a (pleasant) change, Rohit Shetty doesn't do Golmaal 'his' style. Rather he does Golmaal in its 'original' form and that's what creates a decent difference, making Bol Bachchan fairly entertaining!
Mid-Day - Janhavi Samant's Rating: 3.5
Bol Bachchan is a robust, unapologetic farce. It is full of one-liner Prithvisms, and the usual far-fetched gags. And like most Rohit Shetty films, it will probably make you wonder at the utter cheek of the filmmaker, even as it makes you laugh. And that's what matters: Bol Bachchan makes you laugh out loud, quite hard at times, at the inanity and the innovation, the absurdity and the audacity.
Koimoi Mrigank - Dhaniwala's Rating: 3.5
Bol Bachchan is sure-shot hit material. It entertains and makes one laugh out loud, throughout!
Rediff - Sukanya Verma's Rating: 2.5
Bol Bachchan is a typified Rohit Shetty slapstick. Bol Bachchan is dispensable cinema, forgotten almost immediately after it's over.
India Today - Vinayak Chakravorty's Rating: 2.5
The film never quite manages to be rip-roaring fare. As Abbas/Abhishek piles on the lies to outwit the gullible Prithvi, you spot gross lack of comic chemistry between the two lead stars. Far from being LOL stuff, Bol Bachchan ends up being Bore Bachchan, with a lame climax.
Hindustan Times - Anupama Chopra's Rating: 2
The best thing about the film is Abhishek Bachchan, who lets loose without inhibition. He manages to sparkle even in a script that is lazy and determinedly lowbrow, so the alter ego Abbas is an effete dance teacher who wears flowery shirts.
DNA - Aniruddha Guha's Rating: 2
Bol Bachchan, overall, falls short of being a laugh riot in spite of having the ammunition for it. In its current form, it's best enjoyed inebriated.
NDTV - Saibal Chatterjee's Rating: 1.5
Be warned. Bol Bachchan is a comedy so absurd that it could reduce you to tears of despair. Conversely, if you have the stomach for such rampant silliness, it might propel you into paroxysms of delight. The call is entirely yours.
