“The world was really black and white in those days, not just in the photographic medium… Behind closed doors, in the hallways and in the recesses where coffee too becomes black and white.”

Suraj Prasad, Deccan Chronicle

 

Hidden Figures is a charming but not a monumental film on racism in America  in the way The Color Purple was three decades ago or the new film Moonlight is.”

Rating: THREE AND A HALF stars | Full review

Subhash K Jha, SKJ Bollywood
“The actresses… are magnificent and, despite the schmaltz and simplicity of the narrative, their vibrance and character wins us over.”
