Critic Reviews for Qissa: The Ghost Is A Lonely Traveller

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Early promise of a poised and substantial piece gets undermined by a final, inexplicable leap into the paranormal -- an odd denouement for a narrative centered on the very real and corporeal issue of gender-based violence.

May 18, 2015 | Full Review…

Though it's an odd hybrid of gender parable, displacement meta-text, ghost tale and unlikely romance, Qissa packs enough punch to make up for its thematic disparity.

Qissa is most captivating when it treats Kanwar's identity dilemma head on; its best scenes are intimate ones that portray the tempestuous inner turmoil wracking its protagonist.

Love it or hate it, its ability to conjure such intense feelings either way deems it a success.

Qissa is a film about broken minds, social dysfunctions and alternate sexuality in pre-partition India. It has all the trappings of a great art film. But it's served with nonchalant experimentation.

May 18, 2015 | Full Review…

One of the best films in recent times, it's an experience not to be forgotten easily.
