Critic Reviews for Black Friday
The underused Indian actor Kay Kay Menon is perfectly cast as a crisply correct detective keeping a tight lid on his seething anger in Black Friday, a rigorously naturalistic docudrama about a complex police investigation.
Black Friday is a moving and exhausting work of angry humanism.
A fact-based procedural whose drama gets lost amid its analytical detail.
A superb and devastating piece of cinema that with justification can be compared favorably to Gillo Pontocorvo's classic The Battle of Algiers in its dispassionate yet sweeping journalistic inquiry into cataclysmic social and political events.
A potent reminder that Indian filmmaking isn't limited to Bollywood super-productions.
Audience Reviews for Black Friday
I just could not get into this movie. I know this was a horrible event for the people of India, but this "docudrama" did not let me develop any emotion about the event, or the people involved. It is just an endless dialogue (3 hours) from the people who were supposedly involved. In this case, we need more "drama" than "docu".
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." -Mahatma Gandhi Anurag Kashyap's gripping exposé on India's very real Hindu/Muslim conflict and the flawed philosophy of murder in the name of God. Gruesome and painstakingly detailed.
