In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote that Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline's A Gentleman: Sundar. Susheel. Risky 'falls way short of skirting around its jagged edges.'
"Male lead Sidharth Malhotra is a handsome lad with strong screen presence. There is hardly a sequence in the film when the actor isn't on the screen. That is a tough ask. 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," wrote Mr Chatterjee.
