Trust Shahid Kapoor to do justice to a crime-thriller and you won’t be disappointed. From Ishq Vishq to Jersey, Shahid Kapoor’s filmography has been one of a kind. However, it is his choice of neo-noir films that seems to have entertained the audience more. Be it Kaminey or Haidar or the recently released Farzi, Shahid Kapoor seems to rule the roost when it comes to playing an alpha male outlandish character. And with Bloody Daddy, he’s only cementing this further. While there are mixed reviews on Twitter for Bloody Daddy, most of them are positive.
Some have called it a smashing entertainer, and some have hailed Shahid Kapoor as the king of this film genre. Some have even called for a theatrical release of the movie. All said and done, Shahid Kapoor simply owns the character he’s playing. And while Bloody Daddy belongs to Kapoor, it is interesting to see how the supporting cast plays a nuanced role. Ronit Roy as the drug lord and Rajiv Khandelwal and Diana Penty as cops are flawless. In fact, they add to the film in a not-so-archetypical way. Let us check what the reviews say on Twitter.

@shahidkapoor Just watched #BloodyDaddy and my mind is blown away! The intensity, the rage, all was visible through your eyes. Your eyes spoke all the emotions. The end was a bit emotional. And looks like part 2 will be coming. We are really proud of you Shahid. Keep it up!❤️❤️

#BloodyDaddy is a SMASH ENTERTAINER. A quick fire 2 hour long movie that moves at a rapid pace with a set piece BIG ACTION SEQUENCE every 10 mins, it’s for the lovers of #JohnWick and #Taken movies.#ShahidKapoor is really convincing as an action hero who indulges in… pic.twitter.com/fvsBVGWObP

While the majority enjoyed Shahid Kapoor’s action avatar and even drew parallels with Keanu Reeves’ John Wick, several others had a different opinion.

whoever decided to release #bloodydaddy directly to OTT should get a raise cuz agar ye theater mein dekhna padhta toh kuch toh tod deta waha pe. with the exception of ronit roy, everyone associated with this film should seek retirement. what a fucking waste of a movie. pic.twitter.com/9KOXF5R0vs

A Daunting Shahid couldn’t even salvage this middling and unexciting action drama⁰⁰My Rating : ⭐️⭐️ ½ (55/100)⁰⁰#BloodyDaddy is a lacklustre, indifferent and unremarkable in its execution. Probably #AliAbbasZafar‘s weakest directorial after Bharat, this… pic.twitter.com/APFZXGkdsA

Bloody Daddy – 1.5*/5 ⭐️#BloodyDaddy lacks soul, both in terms of emotions (Father – Son bond) & Action….. Probably #ShahidKapoor weakest film in last 5 years…. Shocked and surprised why Shahid picked up such an bygone era script, little difficult for me to digest the fact… pic.twitter.com/0XlfmB9hNB

#BloodyDaddy is an average fair at best, it starts on an intriguing note but loses the grip as the story progresses.#ShahidKapoor is absolutely fantastic and holds your attention till the end. The climax has some twists & turns, action sequences are okay. A good one time watch. pic.twitter.com/OezmnHuFUT
