  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-9
'Ship of Theseus', written and directed by Anand Gandhi, requires patience, an open mind, and a willingness to think. It's not enough to merely sit there in your seat and 'watch' the film, but to listen attentively to its characters and consider their arguments. If you're willing to make that investment

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
This philosophical paean is a 3-part story, each one as complex, conflicting and contemplative. In the first, Aliya (Aida) is a photographer with impaired vision. She depends on sound, touch and intuitive senses to capture images. After a corneal implant her eyesight is restored, but the sudden

  •  Indian Express -Shubra Gupta Rating-9
The first thought that came to me when I heard what this film was about was 'pretentious'. The scepticism actually began with its title, derived from a classic conundrum posited by an ancient Greek. An Indian film, made by a first-time filmmaker who started off writing syrupy saas-bahu serials,

  •  Hindustan Times -Sarit Ray Rating-8
A blind photographer; an idealistic monk refusing treatment for liver cirrhosis; a stockbroker who seems to evaluate the world in profit-and-loss margins, and has just undergone a kidney transplant.Their respective worlds are so disparate, they’d be unlikely to ever meet or cross paths.

A visually rich, beautifully crafted and thematically engaging cinematic essay, Ship Of Theseus sails smoothly and felicitously all the way to its destination.

  •  koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-8
Gandhi who belongs to the theatre world framed the story of this film on an ambitious tapestry. Making a direct reference to the paradox of Greek philosopher Plutarch, where he questions that if an object has changed all its integral parts, does it still remain the same object!

  •  Zee News -Resham Sengar Rating-6
The premise of Gandhi’s film is the Theseus’s paradox, as first noted by the philosopher Plato, which argues that if the parts of an object (say a ship) are replaced one by one, would it still retain its original identity? And if the old parts of the same object are gathered to make a similar piece,

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-8
It’s all in the title. Despite its ambiguous sound and allegorical references, The Ship of Theseus is an exercise in trying to create opinion, raise a platform for debate, or simply narrate a story. Three separate stories and three different voices despite their diversity speak in unison as they

  •  Deccana Chronicle -Khaled Mohamed Rating-8
Both in terms of its ravishing digital technique and dramaturgy, the outcome is proof that a filmmaker from inside and outside the industrial system can carve out a place to stand and make his own movie. It is a place, where, seemingly, he can have the best of two worlds
