• It’s a compelling story and for the most part it’s well told.

    Haraamkhor is one film you just shouldn’t miss, even if it’s just to see how Hindi cinema is exploring new themes with finesse.

    ‘Haraamkhor’ has good performances to watch but it won’t appeal to the masses. Since there are multiple big releases this Friday, pick this only if you are an ardent Nawazzudin Siddiqui fan or want to see an unconventional love story with a social message.

  • Haraamkhor may not appeal to the regular Bollywood audience but if you’re a Nawazuddin Siddiqui fan and love watching performance-oriented films, this shouldn’t be missed at all…

    Haraamkhor shows a lot of promise but ends up being way too vague to be hard-hitting.

  • Haraamkhor starts off as a very enjoyable film that’s filled with funny situations, unique characters and an overall enjoyable aura. But in the second half the story seems to take unnecessary turns, slowing its pace down. It will still be a delight to watch for those who admire the genius that is Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

    There is a lot to love and lot to notice in Haraamkhor. The film is like a diamond; the more you notice, the more you find imperfections which make it all the more beautiful, all the more perfect. Just one advice: Don’t take your jaanu to watch it with you, it is not a date movie.

    This film is insightful and dark, a certified entry into the indie and art cinema stable. If you like your films to be gritty and real, Haraamkhor is a real mean machine.

  • How far will this film travel? Not sure. No one ever is. It is, however, a very interesting take worth the big screen, if not in the theatre, then ideally in the comfort of home since Netflix or Amazon very much allow such options.

    See Haraamkhor for its original and audacious content and for the way the debutant director extracts a  gush of empathy from these bored characters even during their worst moments. Love, we always knew, as redemptive. But lust needn’t be all bad either.

    In a small town, when a young girl battling hormones battles loneliness and finds it easy to seduce a local teacher, who thinks nothing of but his own pleasure, there is chaos in the lives of a young lad (and his friend) who stalk her constantly. This is such fearlessly new storytelling, it takes getting used to. But it’s a story that needs to be told.

    ‘Haraamkhor’ is a bold, artistic and engaging film, which will be enjoyed by all those who like content driven film. The movie could have been a great film, but settles up only due to some great performances and the novelty factor associated with it.

    Haraamkhor deals with a taboo subject and the theme may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But that doesn’t stop it from being a captivating watch for Sharma’s skillful treatment and the superlative performances. Go for it if you are looking out for some escape from the usual stale crowd-pleasers!

  • The best part about Shlok Sharma’s ‘Haraamkhor’ is that the trailer of the film gives out nothing of what you can expect from this bold film, apart from a little about its characters. However, we know that there is something mysteriously fun about this film.
