“Sen Sharma is phenomenal. Wearing a stone-hard face, she protects her feelings, her identity, like a mission. But when she allows herself to drop her guard – flashing a smile, directing a piercing gaze – her mannerisms write essays.”
“Konkona excels in the role of a wounded spirit. Bharti’s “manliness” – her walking, talking and working style – is mocked by her male colleagues, but the actress eschews the butch stereotype with great control, turning her gait into more of a tender survival instinct than a hardened physical trait.”
“Driven by two pivotal performances by Konkona Sensharma and Aditi Rao Hydari, who represent two different faces of the problems of caste and class prejudice and discrimination. You cannot take your eyes off the screen, or let your ears wander, as you hang on to every line that the two actresses deliver and every gesture that they make. They negotiate the complex process of understanding each other’s entitlements and deprivations.”
