Himmatwala released today, and as many would have expected, the movie is being panned by critics. Here is what they got to say:

On the whole, HIMMATWALA fails as a film. The only silver lining is the presence of A-list stars and of course, the hype surrounding the film, which might attract footfalls in mass-friendly circuits initially. But as a film that promises big entertainment, HIMMATWALA is hugely disappointing!
If you are seriously planning for Sajid Khan’s Himmatwala this weekend, here’s a warning for you – Do not spoil your next two days. This movie has all the ingredients to make you go lunatic. Yes, I’m certainly not exaggerating as I mean it. We understand the need of funny, light-hearted movies these days, amidst our busy schedule, but this (Himmatwala) is more of a torture than any sort of entertainment.

In totality, the film is a typical masala entertainer, as director Sajid Khan would like to put it. You will certainly get entertained only if you had nursed the desire to travel back in time, especially to an era when cinema revolved around a helpless mother-daughter duo and their life-savior ‘Himmatwala’.
One and half for the film and half a star more for Paresh Rawal.

Himmatwala demands excessive himmat from the audiences to sustain it through all its exasperating buffoonery laced with dim witted stupidity. Walk out of hall and queue up for the refund Sajid Khan promised you. See you there!
