Critic Reviews for Begum Jaan

All Critics (11) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (10)

  • 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.

    August 28, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film isn't devoid of passages that crackle with promise. But, alas, not only are these hope-inducing moments too few and far between, they fizzle out all too quickly.

    July 12, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    July 12, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    July 12, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.
