Critic Reviews for Begum Jaan

All Critics (10) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (9)

  • Begum Jaan's place is more of a multicultural madhouse - full of screechy women that sound like they've escaped Arkham Asylums for Failed Actors from every region.

  • Watch this only if you are fan of Balan.

  • Such a waste of a talented bunch of actors. And of Balan, who tries hard to invest some feeling into a role which turns into a cliché the moment the film opens.

  • Begum Jaan's intriguing basic concept deserves a writer who could have expanded on it to better effect. And the lovely Vidya Balan deserves better than this soulless film.

  • Having the 11 women in one frame becomes nothing but a screech-fest. Having Vidya in a film is an asset though. She is an audacious actor, who merits an extra half star for her ability to shoulder a film.

    Dec 6, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Each scene feels consciously staged than unprompted and the flow from one sequence to the next is perennially jerky leading to way too much chaos on- screen.
