The Hindustan Times review of the film read: ‘Alia puts together quite an impressive show. Her nearly perfect diction, dialect, expressions and how she emotes anger, rage, happiness and helplessness leave you in awe of her screen presence.’

Gangubai Kathiawadi is based on one of the chapters of Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai and shows the evolution of Alia’s character from a vulnerable girl forced into sex trade, from where she rises to become a brothel owner and then a matriarch who even wishes to join politics.

Sanjay is all praise for Alia’s work in the film. He called Alia’s performance in the song Dholida as the shot which he would like to take to his grave. He said at a press conference in Berlin, “She just became one with that character and expressed all her angst and all that she had gone through in that one song. It’s a song that I will take to my grave. If there is any shot that I want to be played when I breathe my last – it would be Alia doing that shot because it is completely the best thing that I have seen an actor do in a very, very long time.”
