Sets of Kamathipura , colour shades used in the film ,music which impeccably fits into the plight and top notch cinematography makes this film a cinematic masterpiece An ace filmmaker SLB proved again that he is numero uno ahead than his contemporaries. Wow.#GangubaiKathiawadi

I have never spared any superlative while praising Alia Bhatt as an actor but after watching “ Gangu bai … “ I realised that actually I was making understatements . She is beyond any superlative . What a performance !!!

. @aliaa08 will be the strong contender for best actress national awards. Her act in #GangubaiKathiawadi is not only her career best, but certainly one of the finest performance i have seen by an actress in recent years… Her nuances, emotional outbursts scenes are tremendous. https://t.co/0MfE18yehq

👉Boring First Half & Second Half

Yeah…. But for #thalaivii a film released during the peak of Corona is an exception for Alia fans.
And for defence they will SHAMELESSLY compare BO of Thalaivii with #GangubaiKathiawadi pic.twitter.com/eCQAxUKr58

The world created by #SanjayLeelaBhansali in #GangubaiKathiawadi is mesmerising!
The photography, the music, the dialogues…it's like watching poetry in motion! @aliaa08 is, in one word, superlative! Still reeling from the sights & sounds of #Gangubai. What a treat! https://t.co/RkqNLZ02tP

The next time you question any talented star actors like #HrithikRoshan or #AliaBhatt based on just the film's teaser or trailer, just a small humble request:
WATCH THE MOVIE FIRST!!😎😎 Thx#Super30 #GangubaiKathiawadi
— NJ (@Nilzrav) February 25, 2022
but praising a history is Not right… #GangubaiKathiawadi was a notorious woman, and #Bollywood as usual showcased opposite to the reality…#Gangubai #GangubaiKathiawadiReview bakwaas movie https://t.co/UJfr75D6ch
