Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor's Batti Gul Meter Chalu has already been released in the Gulf region, a day prior to its release in India, and has been getting mixed reviews from the audience.
Viewers felt that though Shahid Kapoor looked good in his quirky avatar, the direction was not upto the mark which made the screenplay quite dull. Some found the script too predictable and lengthy as well. Some felt that except Shraddha, other actors struggled to play their part with conviction.
The major disconnect for the viewers has been the language that actors use in the film while delivering their dialogues. It seems to have been the biggest turn off for the audience. Viewers felt that the editing of the movie could've been better while some said that though Shahid Kapoor starrer is lengthy, it is worth your ticket.
Based in Garhwal, Uttarakhand, Batti Gul Meter Chalu is a light-hearted drama that focuses on the electricity issues in rural areas. The story revolves around the life of three friends living life to the fullest in a small city. It is directed by Shree Narayan Singh who has earlier directed Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Toilet - Ek Prem Katha.
Take a look at live audience reaction after watching Batti Gul Meter Chalu here:
I won't be able to forget all the claps in the last 45 mins of the movie. Felt so happy that everyone was having the best time. One of the best 2nd half I've seen of a movie. #BattiGulMeterChalu @shahidkapoor nailed it in both - comedy & emotional scenes.

Done watching #BattiGulMeterChalu was not bad @shahidkapoor is a risk taker he steals the show, felt the movie was a bit longer in the first half but it took off in the second half.. court scenes were very good and the monologue of @shahidkapoor was great.. #watchable

#BattiGulMeterChalu | @ShraddhaKapoor is at her quirky & feisty best! Her emotions create an impact, especially during some pivotal scenes. Her character creates an interesting 'twist' in the film! Won't say much, as I want you guys to watch it for yourself ✌#DancebeeReviews

Saw #battigulmeterchalu today.. must watch movie. Shahid rules the movie. Shraddha is also improving...movie was a bit lengthy but definately worth your ticket. Could be a movie of a long run depending whether audience connects to it. Day 1- around 8-10 crores. — Prathamesh Mainkar (@psm_0938) September 20, 2018
1. Film is lengthy
2. Major Disocnnect due to language.
3. Lead actors struggle except Yami Gautam.
4. Story is good but Direction is bad.
5. Editing could have been better.
VERDICT: Don't expect wornders
