    Despite some of the flaws, ‘Batla House’ makes for a gripping, intense watch.

  • Batla House gains all the marks in keeping us thrilled till the end. John Abraham’s flawless performance, Nikkhil Advani’s effortless direction and Ritesh Shah’s absorbing story help the story to flourish in its own enthralling way. Informs you things in an exciting manner!

  • There’s no escaping basic Bollywood tropes here either. But it’s done all so smartly to never take attention away from a deeply realistic crime-drama. This is clearly Advani’s best work in a long while; suspect since the animation film Delhi Safari (2012), if not his rom-com debut, Kal Ho Naa Ho (2003)!

    John Abraham is at his home territory as he portrays the role of a decorated officer and it’s nothing we have not seen already. Watch it for the depiction of real life incidents and the obvious cinematic liberties. It’s not really the independence day treat but makes for a one-time watch.

  • Batla House is a movie made for those who want to revisit the pages of history. On the Independence Day, the police officers deserve a film like Batla House to remind us that there is a world in between the two extremes of ‘memes’ and the ‘hyper-national portrayal of the forces’.
