Whiplash English Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-9
Whiplash explodes on screen like a well-timed artillery barrage. We're introduced to the two characters in this movie that really matter in the opening scene itself. Illuminated by an overhead light, Andrew is seen practicing in an otherwise dark room at the fictional Shaffer

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-8
Shot and edited at a rapid-fire pace, the camera zooming in on Andrew's drum-kit as his fingers bleed to achieve Fletcher's desired tempo, the film never lets up or loosens its grip on your attention. Right upto the very end, Chazelle eschews conventional narratives, leaving us

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Juhi Matta Rating-8
Whiplash is a film that will haunt you long after it’s over. It shows us both sides of ambition and talent, and it does this remarkably. It’s not easy to make unsympathetic characters like Fletcher relatable, but somehow, the film manages to do just that. It is the perfect film for

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Kusumita Das Rating-8
You need to know nothing about jazz drumming to enjoy Whiplash. In fact Whiplash is as much about jazz drumming as a sports drama could possibly be. Actually, this film packs in all elements of a sports drama. Think a gifted player (in this case a jazz drums player), a grizzly coach
