  2. Mohar Basu of KoiMoi (rating: 3.5/5) said "Jain carries me with her daunting journey that I will hold on to for many years probably. The instances were revolting, the tall talks about women’s morality – a sham and the despite the distressing situations – Gulabi Gang is a ray of hope, brimming with optimism to change the stringent attitudes with galvanizing ferociousness."
  3. A Bollywood masala film directed by Soumik Sen, titled Gulaab Gang is a dramatization of Sampat's Pal story, starring actresses Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla. The film is slated for a release on March 7, 2014. When asked about the Bollywood film, Gulabi Gang director Nishtha Jain stated "I don’t think a commercial movie can capture the colour, nuance and immediacy or the raw and edgy quality of the ‘real’ which you’ll see in my film."
  4. Anupama Chopra of Hindustan Times (rating: 3.5/5) claimed "The documentary, Gulabi Gang is a record of an extraordinary women’s movement started by the extraordinary Sampat Pal Devi in Uttar Pradesh in 2006."
  5. Producer Anubhav Sinha discredited any source stating that his fictional film was based on Sampat Pal's life, stating that "It's a woman's fight for women's rights who ends up fighting another woman. The film is not inspired by Sampat Pal at all."
