• Kumar tells his story through a coming-of-age story between two teens — Noor (Zara Webb) and Majid (Shivam Raina) — in an atmosphere of all-pervading gloom where even any semblance of hope becomes everyone’s supreme aim.

  • Raazi boasts of some splendid performances by even those who have small roles.

  • Still the vital definitive crux is marked with slightly long-drawn-out juxtapositions that could debilitate the overall emotional impact of the film.

  • There are no digressions here to blend jaw-dropping footage of the attempt to climb Mt. Everest with a dramatic back story to reach the summit. And thank God for that! Bose tells the perilous story of Poorna without clutter and focuses on human endurance and dilemma. Viewers would instantly empathise with her. The only negative aspect could be the simplistic dialogues that make most characters one-dimensional.

  • Oberoi shows enough promise of a better off-mainstream cinema that should emerge from her kind of storytelling.

  • Though the film conforms to the rules of sports movies quite often, and has its share of embellishments and formulaic tangents too, it never succumbs to sports-movie formulas, rather, it manages to transcend the genre, only because it sticks to honestly telling a true story — so narratively compelling and enthralling the film is. It’s a film that has lots of heart… Go watch it!

  • The film boasts of a confident command of tone with magnetic performances holding your attention, and film leaves many things unreciprocated. But only if you want to grasp the agonising lives of some of these men and women, and look deeper, you will appreciate. Chauthi Koot is the kind of film that comes once in a while, and therefore, is a must-watch!
