Times of India | 6/10 Stars

There is a madcap vibe to Gulaebaghavali, a comic caper that is largely amusing and laugh-out-loud funny at a handful of moments when it manages to fully exploit the nuttiness of its premise.Gulaebaghavali is somewhat of a minor surprise. Kalyaan’s writing and filmmaking might lack finesse but he makes up for it with confident narration, never letting the film slip into a lull.The actors pitch in wholeheartedly and turn in engaging performances (even Hansika gets her lip-sync right!).That said, there is something amiss with the film; it isn’t as wacky as its premise sounds, and not as funny as it could have been. The writing isn’t compelling enough and there are stretches where the loudness in the humour comes close to being juvenile.But, luckily for us, there is a laugh just around the corner of an unengaging scene and this keeps the film entertaining while it lasts.

The Indian Express | 4/10 Stars

Gulaebaghavali is encompassing when it comes to reactions — not the reaction of characters on screen, our reactions. It generates an entire gamut of moments. There are the genuine laugh-worthy moments, absolute cringe-worthy ones, moments where you laugh and judge yourself a second later and moments where you judge other people for laughing. The best metaphor to describe Gulaebaghavali is an ECG — amid the drops and flatlines, there are few highs as well.It might have been promoted as a Prabhudheva-Hansika film. But the film truly belongs to Revathy and the ensemble of comedians Yogibabu, Mansoor Ali Khan, Rajendran and ‘Munish’ Ramadoss. Revathy truly ‘drives’ the film as Masha, in an ode to her yesteryear role in ArangetraVelai. It is a mindless caper that relies on its laughs to help the viewer ride through the logic loopholes. Several recent movies have fallen under this new genre of ‘mindless entertainers’.The film, however, ends on a high with some genuinely funny moments. Look out for Mottai Rajendran’s hilarious sequence with his ‘mother’. Read full review…

Deccan Chronicle | 5/10 Stars

It is a mindless comic caper, and the intention of the director is to provide an entertainer. The logic goes for a toss at several places, and the film meanders a bit in the second half. The writing could have been better.Prabhu Deva, who is known for his comic capers in the past, pulls it off with ease. Needless to say, his dance movements are a treat to watch. Hansika, who has shed a few kilos, looks refreshing, and has done justice to her character. But it is Revathy who is the show stealer with her comic timing and delightful body language.All others including Munishkanth, Yogi Babu (with his cracking one-liners), Sathyan, Mansoor Alikhan, Anandaraj tickle your funny bones whenever they appear on screen.Vivek – Mervin’s music is loud at times, and songs are okay. Visually, the movie looks rich and attractive, thanks to cinematographer Anandakumar. The film is enjoyable in parts! Read full review…
