Times of India Review
The only actors who look logical and put in some effort to their characters are Edward Sonnenblick and Anjan Srivastav (as Gandhi bhakt). They try to infuse some method to the unending madness. Firangi moves at a snail’s pace leading us to a semi-fun climax. The family film isn’t really tacky or repulsive, it’s outright boring and that’s probably worse because it’s not even unintentionally entertaining.
NDTV Review –
Firangi takes painfully long to get to that point, by which time the audience that has survived the rigmarole thus far is beyond caring – is a terribly tepid affair. Neither the comic potential at the core of the film nor the energy of Kapil Sharma’s antics is enough to pull it out of the irremediable mess it degenerates into. Firangi might have been harmless fun if only it had stopped short of running so hopelessly amok.
