Madaari Movie Review Roundup By Top Critics In India

Madaari Movie Review By Rajeev Masand – 2.5/5

“Madaari sticks to a template similar to Neeraj Pandey’s A Wednesday, but doesn’t drum up the same urgency. The cops, led by a solemn-faced Jimmy Shergill, find themselves engaged in a wild goose chase for Nirmal, but there’s very little tension to this battle of wits. Also, Kamat’s depiction of a landscape altered by social media engagement and public opinion is real but sloppily handled. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for Madaari. Arguably one of the finest actors of our times, Irrfan Khan deserves films worthy of his talent. This one comes up short.”

Madaari Movie Review By Times Of India – 3.5/5

” Kudos to Irrfan and Nishikant Kamat for daring to make this poignant, provocative and politically incorrect piece of cinema, that makes its point unabashedly. Though predictable and a tad stretched, the emotional crime drama unfolds like a thriller. Kamat’s execution falters a bit though. He tries too hard to be ambiguous at times, when a simple storytelling could have been as effective. However, overall, his intent deserves an applause as Madaari shames the trend of rising apathy that is often misconstrued as resilience.”

Madaari Movie Review By NDTV – 2.5/5

“Madaari isn’t the first Hindi film to advocate a brand of vigilantism that borders on the fascist. Nor is it likely to be the last. But its point about the deadly distortions of democracy is terribly laboured and sketchily articulated. Terms like instant justice, kangaroo court, media trial, rule of law and ideal voter are bandied about. They do not eventually add up to much because the tale of loss and retribution that Madaari sets out to narrate is lost in a heap of cliches.”

Madaari Movie Review By Rediff – 2/5

“Because a film like Madaari is a film that needs to be made.We need movies that will hold up a mirror to us and force us to look at the kind of society we are content to live in today. We need movies that will stop us from being frogs in a slowly boiling pot of water, absorbing the gently rising heat, not realising that, soon, it will kill us. We need movies that will awaken us, or shame us, so that we consciously refuse to succumb to a corrupt system. We need movies that will motivate us to teach our children the value of doing things the right way. Unfortunately, the well-intentioned Madaari fails to make it to that space in our hearts.”

Madaari Movie Review By Koimoi – 2/5

” The film’s uninspiring script is already a problem and the execution of it is another. Using stock images of happening across India, the director tries to make a hard hitting impact on the viewer but completely fails at it. Madaari is a lost cause. The story in spite of having potential, fails at execution and thanks to its dramatic discourse, shifts away from its focus. I am going with a 2/5 for the film.”

Madaari Movie Review By Bollywood Hungama – 2.5/5

“On the whole MADAARI comes across as a thriller which holds your attention only in parts. It lacks consistency and punch and will therefore appeal to a limited set of audience. At the box office, its business prospects will be limited.”

Madaari Movie Review By Scroll.in

“Nirmal’s rage against the machine is not new, but Ritesh Shah’s often-punchy dialogue elevates Madaari from an exploitative vigilante flick to something approaching a manifesto for genuine “Acche Din”.”

Madaari Movie Review By Bollywood Life – 2.5/5

“Madaari may have its heart in the right place, but an average direction and flawed narrative let down the movie’s honest intentions. Watch it only for a terrific Irrfan Khan! But then, the man is good even he is being shown just sitting on a bench!”

Madaari Movie Review By Gulf News – 3.5/5

“While the second half meanders, the conclusion isn’t a let down. The face-off between a criminal and the corrupt politicians packs a punch. Madaari would have benefited hugely from a 10-minute trim (the songs underlining the father-son bond were excessive). But in all, Madaari was engaging and touched upon some deep subjects such as corruption, the power of social media and public opinion, with alacrity.”
