Critic Reviews for Fly Away Solo (Masaan)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

Helmer Neeraj Ghaywan hasn't found ways to overcome script and editing weaknesses, resulting in a disappointing drama that's unable to realize the potential of the one truly interesting character.

Ghaywan doesn't overstate his points, and even though the resolution he finds for his characters is predictable, their journey is interesting enough to make up for a cliched ending.

Neeraj Ghaywan's understated and assured Masaan takes its narrative cues from the flow of the Ganga river and the movement of the trains that pass over it.

A layered and sublime tale about life, death and beyond.
