Yaara review: Tigmanshu Dhulia film works only sporadically

Shubhra Gupta from The Indian Express writes, "The only way to work a testosterone-laden, bullet-riddled sprawling desi Western-cum-crime saga, is to keep it believable. I’m quite happy to watch young men, drunk on the power of can-do-anything youth, swagger about, especially if they aren’t the overused, jaded stars Bollywood works with. But there needs to be more that they, and us, are given to work with. Yaara needed both more clarity and heft, to deliver on the promise it set out with."

Yaara Movie Review: Vidyut Jammwal's Action Film Has Its Moments - But Too Few And Far Apart

Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV says, "Yaara has its moments, but they are simply too few and far between to make an impact and change the course of the film. This outing has no chance of being ranked among Dhulia's best works. It is far too wayward to sustain audience interest all the way through."

Yaara Movie Review (Zee5): Vidyut Jammwal, Amit Sadh, Vijay Varma & Kenny Basumatary’s Movie Lacks Punch!

Pooja Darade from Koimoi.com writes, "All said and done, Yaara has some good moments but many bad moments. PA story that had a lot of potentials to be a great movie turned out to be average. But you won’t be disappointed with the performances by any actor. So if you are a fan of either of them, give it a watch."

Movie Review | Yaara: Kya Kasoor Hai Hamara?!

Vishal Verma from Glamsham.com says, "Movies like Yaara echoes my two prime concerns. One – such movies should have a statutory warning like those we have on cigarettes and liquor. Second – which came into my mind during this lock-down which goes like this – no matter how strong your reaction may be but it’s better to be safe, stay at home. The movie has ended, you have survived now don’t risk your life by moving outside. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara Yaara – Kya Kasoor Hai Hamara."

Yaara Review: A disjointed effort

Devesh Sharma from Filmfare writes, "All-in-all, this period film about friendship, guilt and redemption needed better writing as well as better editing. It's certainly not the finished product we have come to expect from Tigmanshu Dhulia."
