Bharat Reviews

July 9, 2019
Despite the solid base in remaking Ode to My Father, Bharat turns out to be a very middling experience, undercutting genuine emotion and tension with cheap humour and overdrawn sequences.

This true and rugged representation of life restores the balance somewhat in this film where logic vanishes into thin air.

The pulpy Salman Khan epic is overstuffed, painfully dull and meanders on and on

An ode to survival becomes a tribute to its leading man's infallibility.

Bharat is way too ponderous and plodding.

Far from being a Forrest Gump with Salman Khan, Bharat is mostly a plodding trek through post-1947 to contemporary India.

Yes, it's all very Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and all very 'filmi', haha, but who doesn't love the idea of long-separated loved ones being reunited? Treacle it may be, but the tears are real. And moving: my eyes were moist, even when I knew I was being played.

Bharat is too long, too overdrawn and too maudlin for it to evoke any genuine emotion.

You leave the theatre feeling underwhelmed...

At one point, Bharat launches into the national anthem in its entirety and some of the people around me began to stand up. Bharat is the kind of film you'd expect Akshay Kumar to make.

The only thing it gets right is the choice of source material...

The South Korean film on which this is based in a masterclass in melodrama, while this is bloated and inconsistent...

Bharat is well-intentioned, entertaining and doesn't succumb to the trappings of commercial potboilers.

...earnest and sure-footed, these are some of the best scenes of the film, and you can't help but tear up.

A corny drama about the title character's quest to support and do right by his family in post-partition India.

Bharat needs rewrites, or at least some kind of breath test.

At almost three hours, Bharat is an excruciating watch, which is exacerbated by the fact that neither Khan's acting or dancing skills looks like they're in any mood to ever improve.
