Top Reviewers:

India Today (Rating: 2.5/5):

‘King of Kotha’ is a gangster drama that has many interesting ideas. But, they are underused. Despite the pacing issues, the film holds your attention.

Indian Express (Rating: 1.5/5):

Altogether, King of Kotha is a routine gangster drama. Abhilash Joshiy, friend of Dulqer turned director with this film. He tried to elevate Dulqer Salmaan’s heroism in a gangster drama. However, predictable story, Screenplay and direction played the spoil sport. The slow narration is in such a way that the proceedings give a never ending feeling. Even Dulqer Salmaan’s screen presence failed to power the film.

Mirchi9 (Rating: 2.25/5):

Overall, King Of Kotha is a predictable and routine gangster drama with neat execution. If the technicalities like BGM, artwork, casting, etc. are enough and length isn’t an issue, it is a decent watch.

123TELUGU (Rating: 2.25/5):

On the whole, King Of Kotha is a lengthy and boring gangster drama. Dulquer Salmaan shines as usual, and he gets nice support from Dancing Rose. But the routine story and the snail-paced narrative worked against the film big-time. Hence, King Of Kotha ends up as a disappointing watch this weekend.

Times Of India (Rating: 2.25/5):

Overall, King Of Kotha is a gangster drama that is predictable and ordinary, with a few high moments. However, the performances and technical work, can satisfy you if you choose to ignore the dull pace and lag in the narration.
