  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-4
As soon as Neha reaches her destination, she bumps into three children, who are criminals according to the villagers. They bunk school and are later lured into joining the gang of a local crime lord. Will Neha be able to rescue and reform these gun-wielding kids and others like them

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-3
We are halfway through 2014 and what we notice is that there is no specific genre that has dominated the year so far. At the same time, we cannot ignore the likes of those films which actually made the year thus far a memorable one. These films include many small budget films and a handful

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-2
A do-gooding young woman shows up driving a shiny SUV in a tiny kasba in Bihar all by herself with a single point agenda: to start a school. Point out the anomalies in the above sentence. The entire sentence is one, because, to begin with, a tiny village in Bihar isn’t the kind of place for

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-3
'Chaarfutiya Chhokare' means "boys measuring four feet vertically", i.e. kids, not midgets. Writer-director-editor Manish Harishankar’s film is about three of them -- Awdesh (Harsh Mayar), Gorakh (Shankar Mandal) and Hari (Aditya Jaiswal). Though we are in lush, scenic Kohlapur

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-3
The script at hand was a powerful one but the story loses its steam soon enough. My biggest problem with the script was its lack of genuinity. It reads fake in bold letters. People die, girls are kidnapped but you’ll find it hard to empathize with the characters. Feeble sympathy at best.

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-4
There is no doubt that Chaarfutiya Chhokare wouldn't have been the same experience without its lead actor Soha Ali Khan. She sparkles in almost every scene and makes it her own. One can see that she's not just in character but is genuinely attached to the issue and quite vehement

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-4
Charfutiya Chhokare has good intentions and a climax that has Soha Ali Khan delivering a powerful line about protecting children from being abused around you touches you. But alas, that’s about it. Set in a remote village in Bihar, Charfuitya Chhokare is about a foreign-educated

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-2
Charfutiya Chhokare is an utterly disjointed film parading as a social commentary on the depravities of rural Bihar. Soha Ali Khan has no business of participating in such an amateur production, but she plays the cliched and idealistic NRI-return from a 70s B-grade classic

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
A do-gooder Neha (Soha Ali Khan) arrives at a small Bihar village with a mission. Having collected the money for her dream project - starting a proper school for the village kids, she has arrived to start work on it. (Why this particular village is never explained.) She meets the headmaster

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-5
When it comes to films based on social issues, it gets a little tiresome, especially when badly-executed. With the same old tale of corrupt ministers and contractors, this week we have Manish Harishankar’s Chaarfutiya Chhokare starring Soha Ali Khan and Seema Biswas.

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-3
Trying to cash on the Indian rural child abuse, trafficking, crime and labor exotica in Bihari lingo, first time writer director Manish Harishankar’s ‘Chaarfutiya Chhokre’ starring Soha Ali Khan in the lead is earnest by heart by trying to depict the plight of children in rural India

  •  Bollywood Life -Avinash Lohana Rating-7
Chaarfutiya Chhokare is a struggle of three kids who are trapped in the world of crime. Moreover, they also get dragged into child trafficking, a brutal reality that exists in our society. Neha (Soha Ali Khan), a software engineer turned child activist visits their village in north Bihar with an intention
