The movie deserves praise for sticking to the sports underdog-movie formula and offering us a decent watch. Madhavan as always is delicious on the screen, despite being given the instructions that he has to be Khadoos (crotchety) all the time. Once you get used to the even louder student (marvelously played by newcomer Ritika Singh), the film sort of grows on you. But the predictability of the story makes its 109 minutes feel like three hours.

Namrata Joshi (The Hindu)

Saala Khadoos is unable to rise above the predictability and time-worn cliches of an average sports movies. Mainstream films are all about suspension of disbelief but only if you can connect with the characters, their provocations and destinies. In Saala Khadoos you remain eminently disinterested.   Read Full Review

Saala Khadoos Review RatingRachit Gupta (Filmfare)

Saala Khadoos is easily one of the best films you'll watch in 2016. It's feisty, boisterous and spirited just like any revered sporting champion.Not only is the story uniquely relevant, it has emotional depth and maturity that's rare in Hindi cinema.   Read Full Review

Saala Khadoos Review RatingRajeev Masand (IBN Live)

Saala Khadoos sticks to familiar ground as far as a sports film goes, although the climatic bout is genuinely thrilling. Amidst all the faux sentimentality, we still get a protagonist that we can't help rooting for. That is the film's real success.  Read Full Review

Subhash K Jha (Firstpost)

The narrative is virile and vibrant, while the energy-level is mostly high. Saala Khadoos is an unabashed unapologetic film, whose two main characters' graph moves together from the opposite sides of the moral arc. Saala Khadoos promised a rugged sports film, and it delivers.   Read Full Review

Saala Khadoos Review RatingShweta Kaushal (Hindustan Times)

Avoid this grumpy drama if you are looking for a good sports film. If you must, watch it for Madhavan's power-packed performance. Saala Khadoos could have been a far better film if it had better conviction.   Read Full Review
