GULABO SITABO is the story of the rivalry between a tenant and a landlord. Juhi Chaturvedi's story is promising and novel. Shoojit Sircar's direction is decent. He had a weak script in hand and hence, there isn’t much he could have done anyway. GULABO SITABO starts off on a decent note, introducing the characters (including the mansion), the relevance of the title and the world in which they reside. The twist in the tale is definitely unpredictable and though it’s not entirely unconvincing, it ends the film on a great note. Amitabh Bachchan delivers a smashing performance. His make-up is spot-on and the manner in which he gets totally into the skin of his character is seen to be believed. Ayushmann Khurrana also is quite entertaining but his screen time is less than that of Amitabh. Farrukh Jafar has a significant role and leaves a huge mark. Vijay Raaz and Brijendra Kala are dependable as always. Shantanu Moitra, Abhishek Arora and Anuj Garg's music doesn’t have a shelf life. Avik Mukhopadhayay's cinematography is excellent and captures Lucknow and especially the dilapidated mansion beautifully. Mansi Dhruv Mehta's production design also adds a lot to the realism of the film. Same goes for Veera Kapur Ee's costumes. Pia Cornelius's prosthetics make-up design is excellent and adds to the impact. Chandrashekhar Prajapati's editing is passable. On the whole, GULABO SITABO is a decent entertainer for home viewing. Despite the lack of humour and an average script, the film works majorly because of the performances, the Lucknow setting and the twist in the end.
