  • The film's semblance of casualness is winning. It seems to make itself up as it goes along. But this fly on this wall has keen eyes, keen hearing, a keen intelligence.

  • Perceptive and powerful.

    March 25, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Here's a film-maker training a sharp, prosecutorial eye on those harsh homefront realities Bollywood has traditionally permitted audiences to escape.

  • Court is both a grimly compelling legal drama and a devastating attack on India's seemingly outmoded justice system.

    Top Critic
  • Although the film is an unruffled work of fiction, the absurdity of the legal and political state of affairs it quietly but powerfully comments upon may be all too real.

    August 28, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Untrained actor Vira Sathidar is wonderful as Kamble, a proud man who remains stoic even as an antiquated and often-absurd legal system chips away at his freedom.
