If you're planning to watch this movie, check out the netizens' reviews first...
Fenil Seta @fenil_seta: "#LaalKaptaan is a slow, painful and a bizarre film. The writing is poor and even the execution isn't great. The editing is not smooth in this film that has multiple tracks."
Box Office Stats @boxoffice_stats: "#Laalkaptaan is an average movie which has a good concept but ruined by its slow, repetitive and boring narrative. Few Scenes, Performances and Cinematography are Praiseworthy. #Saifalikhan gives a solid Performance. @deepakdobriyal is Excellent as Well. 2.5 Stars !!"
Sumit kadel @SumitkadeI: "Watched #LaalKaptaan & it gave me severe headache. Story , direction performances & every aspect of the film is horrible to say the least. Watch at your own risk. Rating-⭐️."
bHASKAR MAJi @MadProphet: "If only more Indian filmmakers had the courage to embrace the surreal and genre instead of trying to be magic-realist about it, we wouldn't have half-arsed attempts like this one. Same mistake kinda ruined Tumbbad. Still worth a watch if you don't like blockbusters. #LaalKaptaan."
Deepak Bhurani @deepak_bhurani: "One word for #LaalKaptaan disappointed. The trailer of movie is much much better but the movie is dull. My rating 2.5/5."
ANMOL JAMWAL @anmolj4: "Take a bow #SaifAliKhan . Fully immersing himself in such an eccentric character! An authentic western with gory violence and a world so detailed and unique! The masses may not appreciate it but this is truly worth it! #LaalKaptaan Full review going up soon on the channel!"
Going by the live review, the film has received a mixed response from the movie-goers and has failed to woo the critics.
