Critic Reviews Nil Battey Sannata

  • Times Of India | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-7/10
Nil Battey Sannata is a rare film, the kind that will bring tears to your eyes but leave a smile on your face. It is gratifying to watch something unpretentious in times when masala films are stooping to entertain. Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari makes you buy into Chanda's innocent world, where happiness is found over relishing a plate of Chow Mein while watching a horror film.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-6/10
I'm going with three out of five for Nil Battey Sannata. Translated literally, the phrase means zero multiplied by anything equals zero. It's commonly used to imply blankness, or the notion of knowing nothing. Ironic, considering the film leaves you feeling rewarded and just a little bit wiser.

  • Rediff | Review By -Namrata Thakker Rating-9/10
Overall, Nil Battey Sannata throws light not only the endearing mother-daughter relationship but also subtly explores issues like poverty and education. Last year, we had Dum Laga Ke Haisha, a feelgood film which left a lasting impression on everyone. For me, this year it is Nil Battey Sannata. Watch this film with your mother. The film is truly a fitting tribute to mothers and their unconditional, selfless love.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-6/10
But there’s such inherent sweetness in the premise, and the performances are so life-like that you forgive these tiny things. The interactions between the school-friends– especially the boy who loves maths, and teaches both mother and daughter to stop being scared by it—and the interplay between Bhaskar and Shah, who is on a roll these days, are all engaging.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Gautaman Bhaskaran Rating-8/10
Bhaskar affirms this with a rare power and simplicity -- a yawning difference from the parts she played as a modern woman in the Tanu Weds Manu series. As is often believed in Bollywood, an actor must be able to let go his/her own self and sink into a character and she does.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-8/10
The script is winner in Nil Battey Sannata. The slice of life film has so much to offer emotionally that it connects instantly. Capturing the mother-daughter spirit astoundingly, it also celebrates the beauty of education. The kind of confidence that it provides to a person is shown beautifully in this film.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-6/10
Nil Battey Sannata's story doesn't offer anything novel so a lot depends on how this story about a maid with limited means trying to live her dreams through her highly reluctant daughter is executed. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari scores in execution and manages to keep the interest alive for most part of the film.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-7/10
A disarmingly simple and heart-warming film that articulates its message without making a song and dance about it, Nil Battey Sannata is a fine achievement. It shines a light on a segment of society where life is a daily grind and where the smallest dreams face the most daunting obstacles. Nil Battey Sannata mines the life of Chanda (Swara Bhaskar), a single mother

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Asira Tarannum Rating-8/10
Each relationship – the mother-daughter, the maid-malkeen and most importantly the teacher-student – is taut and effective, providing a solid vehicle for the narrative. Ratna Pathak Shah overdoes it a bit though as Chanda’s confidante and motivator. She convinces Chanda to join school and all hell breaks lose between mother and daughter.
