The intensity you guys showed with your eyes, the pain and fierce@ShahanaGoswami @PlabitaB has done quite an amazing job— Deepak (@DpakUrsTruly) March 9, 2021
#BombayBegums is one of worst made shows. Characters roles n story line is so unconvincing n weird at times. Acting is great. But the plot. 👎🏻— Mystery (@rash_is_me) March 9, 2021

Avoidable voiceover aside, #BombayBegums is an important show. Also the first one that has made me consider the gender of the reviewer.— Anindita Ghose (@aninditaghose) March 9, 2021
When things have been too imbalanced for too long, subtlety doesn't cut it.

Watched the first few episodes of #BombayBegums and I feel it's the same old conflicts run through and through. Didn't even like Alankrita's last film Dolly aur Kitty ke chamakte sitaare. Disappointing watch.— Simp Rukh Khan (@VelvetIsMushy_) March 9, 2021
Eatched Ep 1 of #BombayBegums. I must say @PoojaB1972 you were convincing in a simple role in DHKMN & nothing short of superb in BB now. I'm hooked, can't wait to continue watching tonight. Power packed performance, nothing over the top, realistic, heart wrenching yet believable.— Shaune B. Ryder (@sbrdoon) March 9, 2021
Started #BombayBegums, really enjoying it. Very interesting to see a show about career focused women in India and what challenges they face. The styling is on point! Rani’s sarees are impeccable & really classy! @NetflixIndia pic.twitter.com/Na6vDdSNGU— Smita🦋 Popstar Lil Mariah🍯 (@smitasayz) March 8, 2021
