Critic Reviews for Beeba Boys

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (8)

  • In Beeba Boys, Deepa Mehta channels her inner Tarantino for a noteworthy change of pace, one that pursues her career-long inquiry into identity and the immigrant experience with explosive results.

  • In a film that does have a reliably twisting crime plot with a satisfying denouement, there is too much action to do any of this emotional material justice.

    Oct 16, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The tone never quite gels, leaving the film an eye-catching but weightless mishmash of hit-and-miss one-liners and bloody yet non-visceral firefights.

  • It feels like Mehta just wanted to have some fun with an unexplored genre.

  • Add in some horrible dialogue and weak acting and Beeba Boys threatens to teeter into catastrophe, but Deepa Mehta's slick direction and control of the action does enough to save some dignity.

    May 3, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • While based, to whatever extent, on a true story, it is rigorous in its adherence to genre clichés.

    VIFF Review: I really wanted to see Deepa Mehta's gangster flick amaze me, but instead it came off like someone who stepped in unfamiliar territory and couldn't overcome the challenge. Choppy acting, poor dialogue, and a run of the mill gangster plot all harm "Beeba Boys" and it's potential to be a surprise hit. Even with Beeba Boys' kinetic energy, great cinematography, sometimes funny moments, and a solid twist, I'm afraid that Deepa Mehta's latest cons weigh it down enough that this is one better left with the fishes.

    A rough and tumble trip through Punjabi gangland in Vancouver. Mehta plays with violence excessively but it aids rather than detracts in this treatment.
