Amitabh Bachchan and AyushmannKhurrana-starrer, Gulabo Sitabo became the first Hindi film to skip theatrical release and premiere on OTT platform. The film's midnight release on June 12 had fans excited to watch one of Bollywood's most bankable actor alongside the living legend.
Directed by Shoojit Sircar, Gulabo Sitabo follows an annoying landlord and a shrewd tenant. Both scheming men are caught in a game of upmanship. But they come together when they realise that the 100-year-old haveli they are living in, will be handed over to the government soon. The trailer had earned a lot of praise for the leading cast, their looks and the story. Now that the film has released, fans are also praising it for the performances and screenplay.
While one Twitter user called the film "endearing", another one said Amitabh Bachchan needs to win an award for the film. One user also claimed that Gulabo Sitabo is one of the good things about quarantine. Here is how netizens reacted to the film's release last night.

@SrBachchan once again proves why he is called legend. While Mirza is such an unlikable character, Big B is on top of his craft.#GulaboSitabo
@ShoojitSircar what a beautiful film you've made #GulaboSitabo
The jokes don't flow in #GulaboSitabo... everything else is spot on, the setting, performances, background score, art direction, greed-is-bad story...#GulaboSitaboreview
#GulaboSitabo is a nice movie. The writing and story are its strongest aspects. Greed can make you do shameful things. Cinematography is awesome. These are the kinds of stories you tell kids to give them life lessons. Definitely watchable.
Good things in quarantine. Must watch. #GulaboSitabo
#GulaboSitabo A film about greediness.
The 2-hr movie needs an hour trimming.
