Read below what critics have said about Chaar Sahibzaade: Rise of Banda Singh Bahadur:

Rohit Vats of the Hindustan Times said: "Voiceover artists have done their job but the same can't be said about the animators. Lack of funds can be blamed for the film's TV-like feel. The 134-minute runtime does seem like a stretch, but if you sit through the initial scenes, you're in for a thrilling ride."

Nihit Bhave of the Times of India said: "Put simply, if you were the kid who secretly played book-cricket in history class, you may find the movie tedious, but if stories of brave soldiers and great wars excite you, march on into that theatre."

IANS reviewer Troy Ribeiro said: "The film is inspiring. The design and creation of the animation along with its 3D effects are first rate for a Hindi film and worth a mention. Each frame is attractive and impressive. Overall, this epic story will appeal only to Sikhs and those who have a keen interest in history."
