Critic Reviews for Night of Henna

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (9)

Writer-director Hassan Zee makes naive storytelling choices that diminish the drama of the piece and muddle the message of cultural tolerance.

Newark Star-Ledger
Top Critic

Top Critic

Offers no surprises as it wends its way to a contrived happy ending.

New York Post
Top Critic

Top Critic
