In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave the film two stars out of 5. "A Gentleman is a pile-up of little ideas gone haywire. They could have done with more breathing room. Style over substance: that's the story of the film. Strictly for Sidharth Malhotra fans," he wrote.
Of his role in A Gentleman, Sidharth earlier told news agency IANS, "My character Gaurav is a very interesting, sweet character at one side who loves to cook and clean up his house like a typical Delhi Punjabi boy. On the other hand, there is a different shade where he is doing a lot of action. One side of the character wants a simple, happy life with a nice house, family and he has a sense of humour. The other side of the character is outlandish, aggressive and one who jumps out of a 60-storey building."
