Batti Gul meter chalu is a movie which deals with the topic of issues the poor people face with electricity.

This is one of the best movies of Shahid Kapoor after Padmaavat. The performances of the actors like Shraddha Kapoor and Divyendu Sharma leaves an impact with the audience.

Yami Gautam's performance is not up to the mark. All & all, the topic of the film is relevant, but the weak point of the film is its runtime, which is long.

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, Batti Gul Meter Chalu tells the story of how people are suffering from corruption in the electricity system.

You will like the film, but at some points it gets boring also. So this film is a one time watch because of Shahid Kapoor.
