Critic Reviews Irada

  • Times of India | Review By -Meena Iyer Rating-5/10
If intention is everything, you may feel kindly towards Irada. Unfortunately when it comes to a celluloid experience, story-telling is prime. Here, the film falters.

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-6/10
The line separating a simply good film from an indisputably great one is often thin - Irada doesn't quite make the leap across the chasm. Irada is a gripping enough tale somewhat undermined by its two facile villains.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-6/10
Constructed on the lines of A Wednesday, Irada tries to look like a thriller but fails to sustain the initial momentum as many sub-stories cross paths. The film struggles to give every story a fair chance to unfold but loses the grip on the central theme in the process.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Namrata Joshi
Irada has its heart in the right place—dealing with the theme of ecological and human hazards that points to big corporations and their irresponsible disposed of chemical wastes. But alas, it fails to fashion a compelling film out of it.

  • Mid Day | Review By -Mohar Basu Rating-4/10
Debutante director Aparnaa Singh's intent cannot be questioned and her groundwork on the subject is top-notch. However, the novice, despite all her hardwork, fails to put together an engaging film.

  • Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Kunal Guha Rating-4/10
Despite a scattered script, Naseeruddin Shah extends some dignity to this film with his signature matter-of-fact manner of channeling intensity.

  • DNA | Review By -Bryan Durham Rating-5/10
Ponder upon a somewhat lost opportunity. Films with social causes at its core work, but only if​ ​they manage to resonate with you in some way. This one doesn’t, at least not to the degree you’d like it to.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Arnab Banerjee Rating-3/10
There was obviously a story here, but Irada doesn’t make it compelling, as it lacks focus and energy, not to mention a character like Paddy, the chief villain, which is facile and thin.

  • Rediff | Review By -Prasanna D Zore Rating-3/10
Blame it on the director for Irada's sloppy editing, the film fails to hold your undivided attention. The scenes and the plot are so loosely woven that the only saving grace of the film -- of course, apart from the two fine actors -- is its duration.

  • Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-4/10
Irada fails to make the required impact. The film’s purpose is to create awareness but it does so in quite a haphazard manner.
