Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)
  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-5
Bollywood films had and will always have its audience for every genre. There is something for everyone here. While the last week we saw the multi-starrer HAPPY NEW YEAR which was a visual extravaganza, this week will see the family drama SUPER NANI, a film which announces the 'comeback'

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-3
The moment we talk about yesteryear actresses, Rekha's name pops up instantly due to her eternal beauty, super hit films and some wonderful melodious songs. Many of her contemporary actresses have aged out, but Rekha still manages to set your eyeballs rolling.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-2
It’s the story of a disregarded mother who despite Khoon se sichoing her family and paaloing her kids in her womb, is one thankless piece of a doormat for her folks. Being screamed upon by everyone at home, she still sings and prays for their well being. Her life changes when her elder

  •  Times Of India -Meena Iyer Rating-4
A progressive thought on women's empowerment is presented in the most regressive movie plot in Super Nani. Bharti Bhatia (Rekha)'s NRI grandson, Mann (Sharman Joshi) who gets his tenses mixed up when he speaks Hindi (unfortunately, that is meant to evoke laughter)

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
Given the 'films' we have been subjected to, especially in the last two weeks, this stands head and shoulders above. A scheduled Diwali release would have certainly raked in the moolah for Indra Kumar and his team. That was a festive time with people willing to spend and a long weekend.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Kusumita Das Rating-2
With Super Nani, that revolves around the most powerful character in Bollywood, the ‘Maa’, or as it is in this case, the ‘Maa’ ki Maa, director Inder Kumar seems to have attempted to show everyone how versatile he can really be. His last was Grand Masti, remember?

  •  CNN IBN -Rajeev Masand Rating-3
If I had a swig of Scotch for each time someone tells Rekha that she belongs in the kitchen, I'd be very drunk watching Super Nani. Come to think of it, that just might be the ideal condition under which to take in this tacky, unintentionally hilarious film that seems to have

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-3
A preachy and mawkish drama about a woman neglected, scorned and tormented by her own oafish family, Super Nani makes its pro-women's empowerment statement with the finesse of a bulldozer run amok. Adapted from a Gujarati play (Baa Ae Maari Boundary by Imtiaz Patel)

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-2
Within a second of the film starting, I was clutching my ears, looking for something to stuff them with: competing on pure decibel levels, ‘Super Nani’ beats everything I’ve seen recently hands down. Actually I could have done with shutting my ears, and closing my eyes.

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-2
Bad movies rarely startle Hindi film critics. Our job requires us to sit through some staggeringly awful cinema. I’ve watched Mallika Sherawat turn into a snake in Hisss and India’s hilarious answer to Brokeback Mountain – Dunno Y Na Jaane Kyun...  I thought I had seen it all.

  •  Hindustan Times -Rohit Vats Rating-2
Indra Kumar, the director of Dil, Beta, Raja, Masti and Grand Masti, is back with his latest film Super Nani and it seems he is still stuck in the ‘70s. Despite having a thought provoking climax, the film gets reduced to a collage of tacky family dramas of Nutan-Mena Kumari era.

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-3
Super Nani is called Super Nani because a submissive housewife, (Rekha) prodded by her US-based grandson (a soppy Sharman Joshi speaking in a terribly fake NRI accent), reinvents herself as a glamorous diva to teach her thankless family a lesson in gratitude and humility.

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-2
Super Nani is not a period film but it sure feels like it is a product of the 1980s. It's hero, Bharti (Rekha), is the ideal, traditional Bhartiya naari. She cooks, prays and loves her family members unconditionally. Despite being a doting and nurturing wife and mother, she gets little in return.

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-2
If director Indra Kumar is to be believed, Ebola, AIDS, etc. are not really the diseases we should be fretting about. It is actually live-in relationships, the 'American bimari' that we must be panicking about. If you are not married and want to still live with the person you love

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-1
It is said that when director Indra Kumar was done shooting Super Nani he showed the first cut to few people. The decision was unanimous. He needed to rework and make it look better else the film was a goner. So he went back to shoot, re-edited and came up with the film he finally

  •  Book My Show -Teena Elizabeth Rating-2
Bollywood has always tried to send a strong message about woman empowerment. From Gulab Gang to Mardaani to Mary Kom, actresses have supported this cause. Now joining the league is the eternal beauty diva, Rekha who plays Super Nani. Based on the Gujarati play

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-2
Rekha - the eternal, timeless, seamless diva is ageless and ironically the makers of ‘Super Nani’ also believed the same for their 80’s style film resulting in a weird off sync example of women empowerment. Director Indra Kumar’s (Dil, Beta, Ishq, Dhamaal, Grand Masti) ‘Super Nani’

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-2
For starters, the film wants you to put on a pedestal a repressed woman who lets her husband and son treat her like yesterday's garbage. Love is all very good, but what about basic respect for oneself? Why isn't that considered a virtue rather than finding some weird satisfaction

  •  Filmi Beat -Nandhini Rating-3
Director Indra Kumar has taken a subject and roped in Rekha to give a message-oriented film 'Super Nani' with lot of emotions, drama, romance and comedy which unfortunately has not worked out in his favour. Roping in an actress like Rekha who defies age will not make a film
