Critic Reviews Haraamkhor

  • Times of India | Review By -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-6/10
The jumpy narrative leaves a lot unanswered, making you feel indifferent towards the characters. Haraamkhor shows a lot of promise but ends up being way too vague to be hard-hitting.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-6/10
It’s Nawazuddin Siddiqui whose brilliant, mostly understated portrayal of a violent predator is the film’s biggest strength. A scene in which he’s begging his wife not to leave him while trying to put on his trousers at the same time is one of the film’s best bits and a testament to his incredible talent.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Namrata Joshi Rating-6/10
While Sharma sets the stage well, the narrative does get disjointed in places. Are the Censor Board’s pair of scissors to be blamed? The need for neat resolutions and an abrupt finale go against the otherwise distinctive rhythm of the film.

  • Film Companion | Review By -Anupama Chopra Rating-6/10
Despite the jerks, Haraamkhor is a strong debut.  Shlok Sharma has an observant eye and the ability to empathize with even the vilest among us. That should hold him in good stead.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4/10
Overall, despite some strong moments, the film suffers from slightness and disjointedness: did the censorship process snip off more than we could chew? Was there more? A second film from the clearly talented Sharma will give us a clue.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-6/10
It is, however, a very interesting take worth the big screen, if not in the theatre, then ideally in the comfort of home since Netflix or Amazon very much allow such options.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
Needless to say, Haraamkhor is not an easy film to watch. A seemingly harmless man mutates into a predator and preys upon a psychologically timid girl. Haraamkhor isn't a ground-breaker, but it certainly is worthy of applause for its fearlessness and for the impressive quality of the acting.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Rohit Bhatnagar Rating-6/10
The biggest hiccup in the film is its slow pace. 'Haraamkhor' has good performances to watch but it won’t appeal to the masses. Since there are multiple big releases this Friday, pick this only if you are an ardent Nawazzudin Siddiqui fan or want to see an unconventional love story with a social message.

  • India Today | Review By -Devarsi Ghosh Rating-8/10
There is a lot to love and lot to notice in Haraamkhor. The film is like a diamond; the more you notice, the more you find imperfections which make it all the more beautiful, all the more perfect. Just one advice: Don't take your jaanu to watch it with you, it is not a date movie.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-9/10
Brave and original, Haraamkhor walks the razor’s edge. One tiny mistake, and it could have been pronounced morally twisted. Some may call it immoral even now. However, Haraamkhor is one film you just shouldn’t miss, even if it’s just to see how Hindi cinema is exploring new themes with finesse.

  • India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-6/10
Haraamkhor's amoral leads don't make it an easy watch but Sharma's non-judgemental study of humans with all their fallibilities and the performances makes this film real and relevant.

  • Bollywood Life | Review By -Sreeju Sudhakaran Rating-5/10
Haraamkhor is definitely not everyone’s cup thanks to its gritty subject. However it is not exactly a fantastic piece of art either, even though it had the potential to be one. But thanks to the spectacular performances of Nawazuddin, Tripathi and the kids, Haraamkhor can be an uncomfortable one-time watch.

  • Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Kunal Guha Rating-6/10
Haraamkhor may not be a film that sets a cinematic benchmark but it is an important one as it dares to explore a forbidden subject, without condemning or legitimising it.
