  • Tech work is high-quality and atmospheric throughout.

  • Mr. Khan is this movie's best weapon. Playing a familiar character type, the world-weary detective, he gives a performance, full of small, sly details, that doesn't seem familiar at all.

    October 5, 2015 | Full Review…
  • [Talvar] is bound to stir up controversy on its home turf with its dramatically potent depiction of police ineptitude, media excess, bureaucratic infighting and a possible miscarriage of justice.

  • "Guilty" is a very intriguing and entertaining crime thriller, that retains the agony and the interest from beginning to end, without neglecting the comments that deem its context equally rich.

    July 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It should just be these two making cinema in Bollywood, that's it...For a case like this, it's the only plausible way to turn this story into a movie.

    April 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Pleasantly enjoyable yet slightly daft for much of its runtime, Guilty is fatally damaged by its abrupt ending, which offers no form of payoff whatsoever.

Audience Reviews for Guilty (Talvar)

  • Nov 29, 2015
    Had high expectations, but as it happens more often than not, left me disappointed. Maybe due to enough knowledge about the case (not that of the police staff involved or their family) from which the movie is inspired. While it's a fictionalized version of real crime, it doesn't manipulate the significant facts of the case as far as the evidence and proof are concerned. Well, more than less. Seems like Tabu's character was created to show the emotional side of Irrfan's character and maybe some light moments. But it doesn't help the cause and it'd have been better off without it. While the performances are commendable, the portrayal of the police personnel is quite typical (not to be mistaken for unreal). One time watch if you don't know about the Noida double murder case details already. A seemingly open and shut case (more so if you aren't interested to go into the details of the case & pass judgments based on unscrupulous assumptions) that's a hard one to crack. Much, if not full credit goes to the police force that mishandled the case by not following the essential procedures in its initial stage. (Letting the crime scene to be compromised wasn't their only fault.) Beyond reasonable doubt for that matter.
