Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Its conclusion, harrowing, humorous and arguably unfortunate, only reinforces the idea that the unsophisticated country people are better off as they were. – Helen T. Verongos, New York Times, Sep 22, 2016

Fresh: The moving performance by Usha Naik in the lead role accentuates the deeply humanistic qualities of this film that has received awards at numerous festivals. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 23, 2016

Rotten: Sathe's intentions are noble, and his film is not without its moments, but it loses force as it proceeds, until it pretty much fizzles out completely. – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice, Sep 22, 2016
