‘Nothing about this thriller, which lacks thrills, works the way it should. Instead of tension, we get a mix of tired family drama and romance in this Akshay Kumar film,’ reviewed The Indian Express.

Cuttputlli review by The Quint

Pratikshya Mishra, in her review, says the Akshay Kumar starrer makes little sense as a good premise somehow also translates to a decent plot but it sways around without an anchor.

‘The film only works when it focuses on its strength as a thriller…almost. A sadistic serial killer without a motive is not a new concept to have in films of the genre and Cuttputlli relies on shock value to inspire empathy (one must assume),’ reviewed The Quint.

Cuttputlli review by The Free Press Journal

For Rohit Bhatnagar, Cuttputlli has the most cliche narrative in the first 20 minutes and obvious slo-mo entries of the leads.

‘Ranjit M Tewari tries hard to play with the genre but he makes a subdued canny film of 2 hours 14 minutes. After ‘Bellbottom’, ‘Cuttputlli’ is his second offering in a thriller zone. However, ‘Lucknow Central’ (2017) also had a good subject but too scattered screenplay made it an avoidable watch,’ reviewed The Free Press Journal.

Cuttputlli review by India Today

Nairita Mukherjee, in her review, says Ratsasan’s flaws follow Akshay’s Cuttputli. The review also says Cuttputli is not a bad watch.

‘Ratsasan’s flaws follow Akshay’s Cuttputlli. Contrived plot points are where a thriller chokes and both Ratsasan and Cuttputlli have that about them. Yet, by and large, it is a good watch, simply because it holds on to the original so tightly,’ reviewed India Today.

Cuttputlli review by News18

Reviewed by Zinia Bandyopadhyay, Cuttputlli will keep you hooked but has stretched climax.

‘All in all, the film would manage to hook you, but only if you watch with a clear head, and if you have not watched the original. There are quite a few distractions too, but overall the film does manage to maintain its pace, and hold the audience’s attention,’ reviewed News18.

Shubham Kulkarni asks Akshay to scream louder than uncomfortable car scene if someone is forcing him to do such films.

‘The film literally forgets everyone in the last 15 minutes because how else will you highlight Akshay Kumar if Sargun Mehta is acting better in the frame?’ reviewed
