Critic Reviews for Sarbjit

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

Sarbjit is at times genuinely moving and features a family reunion sequence that will reduce you to tears.

November 14, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The loud and insistent melodrama takes away from the pathos of the central character's story.

October 31, 2017 | Full Review…

... like an old school, middle-of-the-road movie, Sarbjit wants to spell it out for the viewer. In doing so, it makes a meal out of its subject.

October 30, 2017 | Full Review…

Sarbjit feels too contrived and never becomes powerfully evocative.

August 31, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

From this solid material, director Omung Kumar fashions a film that is structurally clumsy and overtly high-pitched but also strongly enacted and genuinely moving.

January 9, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The film picks up momentum as the focus shifts to Kaur's campaign, but becomes heavy-handed as it attempts to frame Singh's plight in the context of Indo-Pakistan relations.
