All Critics (10)

  • When the blasts send tremors through the desert, all you feel is your eardrums suffering from high-decibel distress.

  • Sharma unashamedly plays the patriotic card. Without apology, he yanks our heartstrings and evokes a rush of pride.

  • This might have seemed cheeky on paper, but it's almost as if the writers willingly dilute their vision when it runs the risk of getting too self-aware.

  • Parmanu makes you wonder how can an earnest on-screen adventure with a potential to end with a big bang on the silver screen, end on a whimper?

    May 25, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Abraham's lack of expression is only matched by Penty's perennially open-mouthed appearance, and their scenes are unintentionally funny because they try so hard to muster emotion.

  • The film does have minor flaws and loose ends but you kind of gloss over them because of its emotional impact.
