Starring Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Abhimanyu Dassani and Shirley Setia, Sabbir Khan’s film Nikamma hit the silver screen on Friday. The action-comedy is the Hindi remake of the 2017 Telugu film Middle Class Abbayi.
Nikamma is set in Lucknow and talks about the carefree world of Adi, played by Abhimanyu Dasani, who spent all of his life under his elder brother’s protection, Raman. The bond between the brothers gets a back seat after Raman decides to get married to Avni, played by Shilpa Shetty. As Avni enters Raman’s life, Adi loses his importance to him. Adi then bumps into Nikki, played by Shirley Setia, only to find out that she is Avni’s cousin. Wait, wait! This is not it. There’s also an MLA who comes into the picture. His notorious strategies bring together Avni and Adi.

Nikamma review by NDTV
The leading news website gave 1 out of 5 stars to Nikamma. The review by Saibal Chatterjee called the film abysmal with a sloppy script. ‘No matter what, Shilpa Shetty’s comeback film remains just that – No Good,’ the headline read.
“The contrivances are laughable, the plot twists are puerile, and the dialogues are unbelievably arbitrary in a bid to be humorous,” the NDTV review said.
Nikamma review by Hindustan Times
Reviewed by Monika Rawal Kukreja, the Hindustan Times said director Sabbir Khan’s Nikamma makes the audience wonder how wrong a filmmaker can go with his story, treatment, pace, and overall impact.
“Nikamma is a one-time watch only and only for the grace, poise and charm, Shilpa Shetty brings onscreen. Other than that, there’s nothing in Nikamma that we haven’t seen already some two-three decades ago,” the Hindustan Times review said.
Nikamma review by Times of India
A confused tale of a wasted lad, read the Times of India review for the Shilpa Shetty’s comeback. The film has been reviewed by Rachana Dubey.
“The overall look of the central characters seems out of place for a fictitious small-town like Dhaamli where the story unfolds. The film had ample scope for music, too, but the tracks are not memorable, barring the title track, Nikamma kiya, which is the rebooted version of an old song,” said the Times of India review.
Nikamma review by India Today
India Today’s headline read, ‘The Shilpa Shetty film lives up to its name – useless.’ Reviewed by Anindita Mukherjee, India Today gave two stars out of five to Nikamma.
“You can watch Nikamma for the sake of Shilpa Shetty. Also, if you want a part-sleep, part-joke situation and are in the mood for no-brainers. Because people with brains already knew their decision from the trailer itself, nahi?” said the India Today review.
