“The dominant hue on this corrosive canvas alternates between blood-red and pitch-dark, both of which are obviously rendered more in a metaphorical sense than in a physical, literal one. The malefic vice-like grip that the mofussil moral police have on the lives of the young suffocates and snuffs and leaves behind a trail of blood and darkness.”

“Tense, taut watch made all the more sinister by its taciturn villains. A single glare from Swaroopa Ghosh is enough to send shivers down the spine. Bobby Deol’s new found comfort in evil, violent characters marks an exciting phase in his career. A calculated aggression shoots out from his dishevelled appearance and weary eyes rendering him far more foreboding than his legendary memes would like us to believe.”

“There’s a whole lot simmering beneath this film’s simple surface. Most of them are uncomfortable truths that haven’t been easy to access in this age of institutional censorship.”
