Critic Reviews for Chander Pahar

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (9)

  • Director Kamaleshwar Mukherjee's film version of the popular 1937 adventure novel by Bibhutishushan Bandyopadhyay struggles mightily for an epic quality.

    December 13, 2015 | Full Review…
  • There isn't much to recommend the film, which only escapes being truly awful by a complete absence of meanness and a compelling lead performance by Dev.

    January 13, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The thrills seem to have evaporated from Kamaleswar Mukherjee's handsome, slow-moving adaptation of a classic Bengali novel.

    January 12, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Painfully awkward in execution, from the stiff dialogue to the time-padding slo-mo sequences and glaring CGI.

    January 10, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The many misspellings in the film's subtitles do liven things up, even if the film's patchwork use of Bengali, Swahili, Portuguese and English make them somewhat inevitable.

    January 10, 2014 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • One reason "Chander Pahar" seems so plodding is that Mr. Mukherjee has a habit of telling us what he doesn't know how to show.
