In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen wrote "Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a film that, like the goofy entertainers Manmohan Desai made in the 70s, has a massively rollicking 'item' scene every few scenes."
"This is a film of unashamed, unrestrained delights, with many a surprise lurking in the wings. It is also an all-starrer in the old-fashioned way, with the first half of the movie constantly enervated by the 'entry' of a superstar actor every few scenes," wrote Mr Sen.
"The best thing about this Vaughn series - based loosely on the comic books by Mark Millar - is that the supervillains are never what we expect. The bad guys in the Kingsman franchise work not on traditionally evil ideas, but noble ideas gone wild," he added.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle released in theatres along with Sanjay Dutt's Bhoomi, Rajkummar Rao's Oscar-nominated film Newton and Shraddha Kapoor's Haseena Parkar.
