Critic Reviews for Ocean of Pearls

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5)

  • Overly earnest but engaging.

    May 10, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Ocean, smoothly directed by Sarab S. Neelam, mostly comes down on the side of tradition and, like Amrit, is dutiful and virtuous. And, like him, it's also a bit too well mannered to make a strong impact.

    May 7, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Ocean of Pearls is, underneath the gross sentimentality, racist and shameless, and it might be dangerous if it weren't so forgettable and on-the-nose.

    May 6, 2010 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • That Neelam was a medical doctor before becoming a filmmaker gives his picture its exceptional impact and complexity.

    December 18, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It sounds heavy-handed, and it is. Although the film looks professional, it feels like a soap opera with a message. High marks for good intentions, but that's about all.

    August 21, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The acting here is surprisingly even and Neelam rarely betrays himself as a newbie behind the camera. For a local indie film, this Ocean is smooth indeed.

Audience Reviews for Ocean of Pearls

    I found this movie interesting on several levels. 1. I love movies that revolve around medicine and the medical field. 2. I'm fasinated by different religions and cultures and this movie taught me a little bit about the Sikh religion and some of the abuses they endure.
