Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In A Peck on the Cheek, we get Ratnam at his best, albeit with a few glitches."
‑ Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle
"The clash of styles works very well, and the uncompromising picture was a treat to see."
‑ Jason Gorber, Film Scouts
"Director/writer Mani Ratnam has zeroed in on the Sri Lankan/Tamil conflict to demonstrate the consequences of political upheaval under the guise of social/religious/commercial progress."
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
"This lavish Indian comedy-drama is unsure of what it wants to be, but still manages to be charming and consistently entertaining."
‑ Adam Nayman, eye WEEKLY
"Looks too commercially slick in its presentation to really touch one's heart."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Unabashed, unapologetic sentimentality."
‑ Arthur Lazere, culturevulture.net
