• This Taapsee Pannu-starrer is gripping edge of seat thriller…The artistic values in this film are incredible. There’s no reliance on cheesy jump scares, just pure dread and atmosphere.

  • Overall, in spite of the ensemble of some good performers, ‘Bharat’ is cursed by a mundane script and forceful attempt to get the entire audience in tears. It is a film that seems signposted as a vehicle to attract attention for its committed leading star Salman Khan, but thanks to the team behind it it ends up as a vehicle that never gets out of first gear.

  • The oddly structured film never goes beyond a surface look at Modi’s political career.

  • Despite its bright premise and superlative cast, the Akiv Ali directorial isn’t as smart as it aspires to be.

  • The Karan Johar produced film is silly and formulaic with stock characters who are just pretty to ogle.

  • It’s a superhero film that really understands that compelling characters and strong emotions are both far more important than spectacle.

  • Actors known to be unfailingly effective find themselves being placed on slippery ground as they struggle with their lines of pick-axe bravado.

  • While the story does lack an intellectual plot to make this intriguing enough, John Abraham carries the film on his shoulders.

  • The lack of a creative driver behind the film leads to a level of fundamental dissatisfaction.

  • Badla is cleverly scripted and executed with a brilliant cast. It is both engaging and enjoyable. The unexpected ending is the cream on the top of this well-crafted suspense thriller. It is also probably a rare Bollywood film that you have to love because it manages to outsmart you!
