Critic Reviews for Siddharth

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (37) | Rotten (4)

  • Simple but engrossing, Canadian director Richie Mehta's Siddharth is the story of an Indian father searching for his missing son, and offers a window into the lives of India's working poor that goes beyond the familiar issues of food and shelter.

    February 20, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Tension builds along with hopelessness but Mehta avoids making judgments or giving easy answers about the circumstances that led to Siddharth being sent off to work.

    February 19, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mehta keeps his sociopolitical critique in the background, allowing it to inform but not interfere with his intimate and devastating story.

    February 18, 2015 | Rating: 4/5
  • I think it's a very interesting story, a slightly frustrating one but very vibrant use of the locations.

    October 9, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a sophisticated neo-realist film, beautifully shot and edited to reflect the sense of time and resignation in Indian culture.

    October 9, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Though at times "Siddharth" can resemble a well-photographed report on India's social and economic ills, Mehta subtly employs different styles to sustain the poetry, poignancy, and drama.
