Exactly as heartbreaking and infuriating as it needs to be.

Ajji is a bit of a mixed bag. The film has some really powerful moments. But the problematic treatment and the art-heavy approach keep it from being the ideal thriller.

Outrage over the rape of children is easily provoked, but it takes hard work to make a movie about the justice that is due to them. Ajji takes the easy way out.

November 27, 2017 | Full Review…

For all its flaws, this is a welcome break from the other sanitised rape-revenge dramas we've seen this year in the form of Maatr and Mom, and one that doesn't flinch at the brutal nature of its subject.

The mood is right, the tone is right, the pace is right. The film doesn't delve in the grey zone. There are two sides and you need to pick one.

Theatre actor, writer, director Sushama Deshpande commands your unflinching attention from beginning to end with her unsaid words and raw emotions.
