see the tweets here:
#bachchanpandey is average. Tonally, it’s more of an adaptation of #gaddalakondaganesh than #jigarthanda. while the first half is fine, it falls short in the second half with a mediocre flashback and a disappointing climax. music and amplifier; bgm is also 👎.
maybe just once. 2.5/5@akshaykumar

to be very frank with you, the original dirt carinval movie has no flash back and no jigarthanda… it was designed by @harish2you for gadhalakonda ganesh… so this #bp movie is actually based on the gadhalakonda movie. ..they took the screenshot game so it’s a new telugu version

varun tej walked away with rave reviews and applause for his performance in gaddhalakonda ganesh. Such was the impact she had starring her in the action-comedy that she is fondly remembered by fans to this day.
the biggest drawback of #bachchhanpaandey is that it doesn’t even come close to the inventive treatment of #jigarthanda
finally a #akshaykumar movie becomes a farhad samji one! #arshadwarsi is the saving grace, but the bar is set too low if you think it’s worth celebrating! pic.twitter.com/wuww6lhzrr

many expressed their disappointment in the trend of remakes in bollywood and said that watching the original was a better idea.
in the midst of all the josh from #thekashmirfiles, akshay kumar’s ‘bachchan pandey’ tries to sneak in…
but it’s just a remake of the popular tamil movie ‘jigarthanda’..
bollywood lost its creativity a long time ago… now it’s reduced to being a copy of popular south indian movies!

akshay kumar 1nc said to waste the money on the temples, instead of feeding the poor
so to waste money on #bachchanpandey watch hindi dubbed “gaddalakonda ganesh” on utube for free both are official remake of tamil movie “jigarthanda” and better use money to patronize #thekashmirfiles1/2#kashmirfiles https :/ /t.co/adrzd0yx2y
