Directed by Jake Kasdan, Jumanji: The Next Level opened to decent reviews on Friday. Reviewing the film for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave the film three stars out of five and wrote: "It is all a game and is, for the most part, fun, but one thing that Jumanji: The Next Level isn't is simple. It is like a complex jigsaw puzzle with too many confounding pieces popping up every now and then: it tends to stray from its course at crucial junctures but mercifully does veer too far away not to be able to course correct when matters turn too bewildering."
Jumanji: The Next Level released in India in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu.
