While another called the film "the flagbearer of OTT revolution."

Dubbing the Sholay actor and Khurranna's performance as "brilliant," another user wrote,

The newly released movie saw the Bala actor sharing screen space with the megastar for the first time. Bachchan, in the film, plays the role of Mirza, the landlord. On the other hand, Ayushmann essay the role of tenant Baankey. The movie revolves around the character Mirza taking the legal route to evict his tenant, Baankey, from his haveli. The two use every method up their sleeve to make life hell for each other. While many raved the movie for its theme and originality, some Twitter users also mentioned that the film didn't mark up to their expectations and found it "boring."

Some gave mixed reviews for the movie, albeit, appreciated the performance of the actors.
Another tweeted:

Gulabo Sitabo was slated to hit the screens on 17 April but could not see the light of day due to the shuttering of cinema theatres over coronavirus concerns.
