  • Although the film wears its utopian ideals on its sleeve, helmer Nitin Kakkar leavens the political content with an absurdist sense of humor and a heartwarming turn of events

  • "Filmistaan" gradually morphs into a serious disquisition on Indo-Pakistani relations and the lingering animus from the nations' 1947 partition.

  • A story with great potential, it could have been better. But watch it anyway because its simplicity is beautiful.

  • It's seldom that we make introspective films laced with dark humour. It's great to find such superlative effort from first time filmmaker.

  • Filmistaan is a delightful film. It has heart, imagination and intelligence. It is a celebration of our enduring love affair with Hindi cinema. And it is a touching exploration of the shared humanity between Indians and Pakistanis.

  • The camaraderie between the pure souls who understand only the language of Bollywood is heart-warming. Datt, with few dialogues, is deadly.
