Critic Reviews for Festival of Lights

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (7)

The travel-heavy third act, which leapfrogs a host of key plot points, risibly defies logic and clarity as the film barrels toward its forced and sentimental conclusion.

November 9, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Somewhere in her switch from documaking to fiction filmmaking, Shundell Prasad seems to have lost touch with clarity.

Universal themes aren't enough to buoy unimaginative drama.

Prasad has a hard time keeping her bulging narrative straight; the twitchy editing, jarring close-ups and bobbing camera only muddle the audience.

November 2, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It ends up being largely just another story about a rebellious American teenager.

November 1, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Little girls never stop loving their daddies in Festival of Lights, a drama that never stops loving soap-opera-style melodramatics.
