Site: News 18     Review By- Shrishti Negi

The random execution of the movie fails to add anything of interest to the plot. Even with great supporting cast like Aanjjan Srivastav and Rajesh Sharma, the film feels frustratingly disjointed.

Kapil might have the ability to make people laugh but the one thing he surely can’t do is prevent his poor attempts at films from criticism. Trust me, he should stick to what he has been doing for past 10 years— “Stand-up comedy”. Source : Visit site for more

At best, a serviceable buffoon with a flair for repartee, Kapil Sharma is awfully limited in his humour and screen presence to perk up this half-decent premise, feels Sukanya Verma. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Hindustan Times     Review By- Sweta Kaushal

Written by Rajiv Dhingra who has also directed the movie, the story may not sound wonderful, but it had the potential of a sweet, fun-filled and warm film. However, the boring narrative, an incoherent screenplay and mismatch between milieu and discourse in certain scenes of the film make it an extremely mind-numbing affair. Source : Visit site for more

Site: The Indian Express     Review By- Shubhra GUpta

The trouble with this mildly engaging film, with a solid supporting cast, is that it is far too long. Sharma is serviceable as a young Punjabi munda, making eyes at a blushing Sargi (Dutta). The setting, meant to be the 1920s, is all created on set, but you do initially manage to ignore the carefully crafted mud huts, because the language spoken is real, the gidda is homespun; as are the costumes.But it goes on and on. And on. Post interval, it slows down and begins to grate, even when the in-awe-of-the-‘firangi’-hero comes to his own proud ‘desi’ roots. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Times Of India     Review By- Renuka Vyavahare

One thing`s clear. With his second outing in the movies, Kapil Sharma wants to desperately drive home a point that he has no interest in milking his comic talent in the movies. While it`s a ballsy move for a successful comedian to explore other genres, the question is, are his fans ready for it and can he do it convincingly? Not really, when he wears one expression (lack of interest) on his face, throughout the film. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Mumbai Mirror     Review By- Kunal Guha

There are films that seem bearable when you go in with zero expectations and there are those that disappoint even when you`re prepared to have your brains grilled. No prize for guessing which category this one falls in. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Bollywood Hungama     Review By- Hungama

On the whole, due to its weak script and lack of comedy FIRANGI fails to leave a lasting impression. Besides this, the long run time of 161 mins will leave the audiences impatient and restless. At the box office, the film will face an uphill task of enticing the audiences, given the lack of buzz surrounding the film. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Scroll     Review By- Nandini

At 160 minutes, Rajiev Dhingra’s movie is highly overstretched, and squanders its comic potential despite having a comedian as its hero. Like a dancer cast as a cripple or Amitabh Bachchan cast as a mute, Sharma flails in a role that does not capitalise on his strengths. Only a few scenes deploy his famed ability for the clever comeback and his quicksilver tongue, resulting in a performance that could have been delivered by any other actor.

Site: GulfNews     Review By- Manjusha

First the good news: Firangi, the comedy led by fading Hindi comedian Kapil Sharma, is far more enjoyable than its trailer. But the bad news? It’s a situational comedy that feels like a slick school drama with clear demarcations about heroes and villains.As usual, the British and their sidekicks speak in caricatured Hindi. It’s a worn-out way to evoke quick laughs, but few of their jokes do land. Watch this if you are in the mood for a comedy that doesn’t require you to apply your intelligence.

Site: NDTV     Review By- Saibal Chatterjee

Firangi is directed by Rajiv Dhingra, who has a couple of Punjabi films behind him. This is his first foray into Hindi-language cinema. Of course, language is no barrier for him. The raw material is. And so is the treatment. He just doesn`t seem to be able to decide if his film is an out-and-out comedy, a satirical take on the impact of the Raj on common Indians, or a romance that blooms across an intractable ideological divide. Firangi might have been harmless fun if only it had stopped short of running so hopelessly amok. Source : Visit site for more
