Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The simple-minded presentation ultimately makes it ring hollow."
‑ G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
"Accomplished and universally appealing, this is the way Bollywood films should be made."
‑ Jaspreet Pandohar, BBC.com
"An ambitious melding of history, politics, romance and patriotism within the parameters of a commercial Hindi movie."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Already a cultural phenomenon in India, this reformist melodrama by Rakesh Omprakash Mehra (Aks) uses razor-sharp technique and an eavesdropper's ear for dialogue to update the patriotic fervor of Bollywood's golden age."
‑ David Chute, L.A. Weekly
