  •  Times of India -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-6
So, The Hundred-Foot Journey is an interesting dish - it's about food but actually, it's not. It's about relationships, loss and the fulfillment a great meal - and a new bond - brings. After losing his wife (Juhi Chawla, wasted in a blink-brief role consisting of stirring pots while mouthing

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-6
The first five minutes or so of 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' are so clunky you'd be forgiven for slumping in your seat despondently, writing off the film as another one of those clueless Hollywood productions determined to reinforce the same old 'exotic India' clichés. But after poor Juhi Chawla

  •  Rediff -Nishi Tiwari Rating-5
When I think of Om Puri in a Hollywood film, Ayub Khan-Din’s brilliant 1999 film East Is East comes to mind.The delightful British comedy-drama showcased Puri as a conflicted Pakistani patriarch raising a family in England, a role that he played with the exceptional flair we have come

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
Can the coming together of two acting greats in a film brimming with food and feasting be barely edible? We are talking Om Puri and Helen Mirren here, not just any old thesps. Barely a couple of minutes into ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’, you know you are in for a dish that is less an

  •  Hindustan Times -Sarit Ray Rating-5
You know the feeling when you read the ingredients on a menu and think, oh, that sounds exciting. But when it arrives, it’s underwhelming, and just not an inventive as you’d imagined it’d be. The Hundred Foot Journey – about the fairy-tale-ish career of a chef – is a lot like that.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Lakshmi Javeri Rating-6
Jostling their way through vendors, shoppers and handcarts, a young boy and his mum (played by Juhi Chawla) are picking vegetables and meats from a crowded Mumbai market. The lad, Hassan Kadam, concentrates on selecting the sea urchin and tastes one to ascertain whether his mum
