On Friday, A Gentleman released along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui's Babumoshai Bandookbaaz - both movies arrived in theatres a day after Tamil superstar Ajith's action thriller Vivegam. A Gentleman joined Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's much appreciated Bareilly Ki Barfi at the theatres which had arrived last week.
In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee writes that Sidharth Malhotra, who has maximum screen-space in the movie, has the potential to have made the movie a more sparkling experience: "If only Malhotra possessed the histrionic subtleties to pull off the role of a highly trained killer who dreams of happy domesticity - a steady job, a comfortable home, a pretty garden and a family swanky car, all achieved through strictly honest means - A Gentleman would have sparkled a great deal more."
On its opening day, Sidharth Malhotra was slammed on Twitter for fitting in reference to his new film in a tweet related to Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, who was convicted of raping two female followers on Friday. "To all the people of Haryana , please stay safe. Hope you can see our film soon," is what the actor tweeted before attempting to salvage with tweets like this one: "To people who are commenting on my morning tweets, they were made before the verdict ! Thoughts and prayers."
A Gentleman has been written and directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK.
