Salman Khan has also been hosting quite a few screenings for members of the film fraternity.
Shubra Gupta of Indian Express rated the film 2 and half stars. “The real film only starts post-interval, when the action shifts to Pakistan, with our trio on the run, with some fun-and-frolic, a quwaali-in-a-dargah, and a picturesque if rousingly unreal climax,” she writes.
Salman Khan is elated with the response to ‘Bajtangi Bhaijaan. “We’re getting a reaction after a few hours and even the next day. (They say) what a film, what an amazing movie, positive film and that it’s actually an elevating experience watching the film,” Khan told IANS.
