When a character says, "You fly these kites and feel the joy," we know just what he means.
Bhargava's naturalistic approach to capturing the sights and sounds of a city in full revelry on rooftops and in the streets is colorfully vivid...
The story falls flat and the impressionistic style - snippets of conversation, extreme close-ups, jittery handheld camera work - loses appeal after the first half hour.
Using a documentary-like style, the film is India as if captured by Instagram.
[It] has a lovely, unforced quality.
This film is joyous, but more than that: It's lovely in its construction.
The lack of contrivance that turns Patang into a work worthy of admiration.
Despite an occasional lack of narrative clarity, Patang has enough visual elegance and observant family dynamics to make it worth seeing.
Bhargava is in love with a visual effect that makes his digital cinematography look like Super 8 film. It's like watching the whole movie through an Instagram filter, and it's utterly unnecessary.
It's a vibrant film, at least, one that brings to life some of the ups and downs of contemporary family life in India.
The characters remain faces on a brochure.
Overall, the film works better as a collection of beautiful images rather than as a cohesive narrative.
