So-So, Bollywood Hungama : ...All in all, DESI KATTEY is strictly an avoidable fare.... full review

So-So, by Johnson Thomas, Free Press Journal : ...Popular TV star Jay Bhanushali and Vinod Khanna’s nephew Akhil Kapur manage to stay connected even when the story does not warrant it. Sasha and Tia are just wall flowers. While Suneil Shetty takes the cake looking mysterious and even having an inexplicable fainting spell in one scene. And of course his trademark pout continues to run riot over yet another attempt of a gritty performance. The rest of the cast are forgettable just like the movie they inhabit!... full review

So-So, by Subhash K. Jha, NDTV : ...Earthy, robust and virile, Desi Kattey is the macho 'gun gaan' that fans of Anurag Kashyap and Sanjay Gupta's cinema would identify with. If you like stories about boys on a rampage, this one will make your heart swell with manly pride.... full review

Thumbs down, by Anna MM Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies : ...Desi Kattey should be played at medical schools for that one killer scene in which a doc with a brain monitoring contraption of some sort gravely points to graphs showing what we are told was Gyani’s “state of mind” while he achieved various shooting scores. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks : ...Moreover in the acting department too we do not get anything great to enjoy except the few scenes of Ashutosh Rana alone. Jai Bhanushali and the debutant Akhil Kapur still have to go a long way in terms of acting and Sasha Agha really needs to stay away from hamming in her future acts. Tia Bajpai as the other leading lady gets nothing to do in the film and Suniel Shetty once again plays an all seen before kind of role trying to save the project with his sincere efforts in vain.... full review

Thumbs down, by Prateek Sur, Bollywood Life : ...This film is a perfect example of what bad direction can do to a good enough plot. This movie is torture to your senses. If you have nothing better to do this weekend, sit at home and watch Arnab Goswami on TV. That will be far more interesting that going and watching this film.... full review

Thumbs down, by Divay Agarwal, Desi Martini : ...Stereotypical acting & poor editing are way too much for the audience to handle these aimless and vigorless desi kattey!... full review

Thumbs down, by Tushar Joshi, DNA : ...A fairly decent concept has gone waste because of poor execution and direction. Desi Kattey has too many glitches and loop holes that prevent it from becoming an entertainer. ... full review

Thumbs down, by Kritika Deval , : ...The editing and the camera-work are as randomly pointless as absolutely everything in the movie, and you should keep a list of the runtime of every song so you can skip them to the second in case you have some sinister or suicidal reason to watch the film in its entirety.... full review

Thumbs down, by Martin D'Souza, : ...he idea, I would assume, after watching this movie which is almost two-and-a-half hours long, was to show the lives of two shooters, who take different routes in their lives. But the route taken by the director of this film is 'path breaking', tortuous and preposterous! ... full review

Thumbs down, by Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times : ...And while you are at it, add one of the most unimaginative camerawork in recent times to the film's credit. Beware, the jerky camera movements and weird angles will give you a splitting headache if you choose to stay in the hall till the end of the film. The background score, equally terrible, sounds as if it is there to scare the audience. Desi Kattey is one of those films, we say, you should not waste your time on. Films like these are best watched on TV, with your friends so that you can laugh on them ... full review

Thumbs down, by Shubhra Gupta, indian express : ...Sunile Shetty looks gray and drawn. The only one who catches the eye is Ashutosh Rana, who has done this kind of role before, but bites into it with relish, regardless. But even he isn’t worth the shattered ear-drums... full review

Thumbs down, by Mohar Basu, koimoi : ...I wish I had anymore kind words to write about the film. But I don’t. The direction is incoherent, lacks maturity. It’s a lame work with pretty much no story to back it with. Inspired by swagger worthy running shots of people in Baywatch, Desi Kattey is neither soulful nor hot. It’s a sad watch which will tire you out and kill you with boredom. I don’t find it valid to waste any more words on a film like this. I will let it pass.... full review

Thumbs down, by Shakti Shetty, MiD DAY : ...In cases such as these, you either get a memorable film or a forgettable disaster. Desi Kattey is somewhere in the middle but it also veers towards the latter. It neither expresses what it wishes to convey in the first place nor manages to make an impact on the audiences’ minds. Poor vision is to be blamed as much as sloppy execution.... full review

Thumbs down, by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA : ...Dum? Well the movie is very highly inspired by 90's super hit film 'Saathi' and has some good action scenes attached to it. Sadly, due to the absence of a good director 'Desi Kattey' ends up being one of those badly made films which is like cut to the 90's era of melodrama.... full review

Thumbs down, by Sukanya Verma., Rediff : ...Having said that, neither is a patch on the inimitable Sasha Agha. Grunt, grin, grunt, grin, grunt, grin, that’s what she does. Rather, that’s all she does. Plot wise, I could rant endlessly but suddenly, I remember what one character said during the movie, “Dimaag pe zor mat lagao.”... full review

Thumbs down, by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies : ...Performances by the two lead actors are another weak link. As is the case in several films off late, it is the side actors, in this case Ashutosh Rana, who liven up the film somewhat. The girls (Sasha Agha, Tia Bajpai) play the love interests and do a fair job, I guess.... full review

Thumbs down, by ANUJ KUMAR, The Hindu : ... A hollow attempt to mash-up crime and sports, Desi Kattey misses the target by a margin... full review

Thumbs down, by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India : ...There's a scene in the film where Pali shoots with his eyes shut during a world championship. I wonder if the team that created this film did it the same way - with their eyes half-shut.... full review
