“The Khans pretty much run the show in Bollywood. But when it comes to portraying Muslims on screen, Bollywood could not be more myopic. Most of such representation in the mainstream consciousness is marked by stereotypes that swing between royalty and the underworld.”

“At the heart Mulk is a fearless spirit that is a far cry from the abject timidity of Bollywood, an industry that believes in upholding the status quo even if it threatens to endanger the precious pluralistic ethos that lies at the foundation of this vast nation… It isn’t often that Bollywood shows such spine.”

“Leaves us with an impassioned plea of the need for accommodation and amity. And love. This makes Mulk one of the most important films in recent times.”

“For a second if you don’t imagine this to be a film at all, but a compelling conversation; its motive, and indeed its structure, will begin to make more sense to you… a significant polemic first, and a thoroughly engaging picture, only thereafter.”

“Proceeds like an investigative thriller with lashings of topical commentary before landing up in the designated battleground of moral and ethical questions in the movies – the courtroom.”

“Contrary to its disclaimer, the characters represent their religions, where their lives are primarily lensed through pathos and victimhood. This approach, another form of the Madonna-Whore complex, is as reductive and harmful as one marked with prejudice, because to cast people in categories – to either just revere or deride them – is to deny them their humanity.”
