Review By Manju Ramanani From Masala
The story by Balwinder Singh Janjua and Rupinder Chahal sets the film in the Sikh space. Loud characters, bright sets, songs and dances and slapstick humour dominate this Anees Bazmee film. But the instances do make you smile. Elements of humour are scattered through the film – The Punjab di mitti packaged phrases such as ‘Jatt ko jet lag nahi hota’, ‘Bade mel milaapi ho’… make for some laughable moments. The second half of the film drags a bit, though it has some lighter moments. If you look for progressive thought in the film such as how families still dominate their children’s choice of a partner, how religion and prejudices in parent’s generation are imposed on their kids’ choices in a partner, then you are barking up the wrong tree. But if you brush that aside and judge it purely as a comedy, you‘ll laugh at izzat ka falooda …
Review By Rashma Shetty Bali From bollywoodlife
Mubarakan is one of the most entertaining films of 2017. Arjun Kapoor’s double role act and Anees Bazmee’s superb direction make it a total paisa vasool experience. Arjun Kapoor approaches both his characters of Karan and Charan with equal zeal. He manages to ensure there is no overlap between them despite the fact that they look the same. His mannerisms and body language for Charan especially is commendable because he needs to underplay his emotions in an otherwise over the top setting.
Anil Kapoor gets the best lines and punches in the film that does full justice to his potential.
Review By Ahana Bhattacharya From koimoi
The story is funny and the film has some really hilarious dialogues. However, sardar jokes are a bit clichéd and Bollywood needs to get over it. I loved the way the film builds up the confusion but it tends to drag towards the climax. Their are moments when you will feel it is patriarchal, racist and regressive. The film leaves you feeling good and happy. An enjoyable weekend watch with kids.
Review By Rohit Vats From hindustantimes
Mubarakan is a typical Bazmee film which starts with loud background music and solid bass. The hero walks in slow motion and dances to peppy tunes, but shows a docile attitude in front of the heroine. Arjun Kapoor takes a cue from Akshay Kumar in Welcome and jumps into this mad-caper wholeheartedly. It’s just that Anil Kapoor is a pro at it and steals all the limelight from him. Mubarakan is designed as a family film where comedy is generated through quarrelling relatives. This works initially but goes out of control later. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be entertained. You’ll be occasionally laughing, but probably won’t be leaving the theatre with a big smile on your face.
Giving away too much will spoil the fun that you’re meant to have watching this. So you just have to go through this garrulous, laugh-out-loud affair with the usual patience and perhaps even some perseverance that you usually reserve for Bollywood comedies such as this one. Anil is the scene-stealer with his half Brit-half Punjabi act lifting the film throughout. If comedies are your thing, then mubarakan….
