    Las actuaciones del reparto son buenas y el tema presentado es interesante; sin embargo, no es muy entretenida o emocionante.

    I had high hopes for this movie based on the reviews so I kept watching it... waiting for the magical moment where the pace would pick up. It didn't. This is one of those slow burner, dramas with a very relevant and important theme. However from an entertainment point of view the majority of the film chugged along at a snails pace. Editing was lacking - I was forced to sit through several scenes as we watched the main actress meander through unnecessary unimportant her daily activities. Well acted though.

    Brilliant. It shows the realistic version of state of cops in India. It is not easy to be Singham and beat up goons. In the real world Cops need to follow a lot of rules and there are plenty of hindrances and roadblocks for just doing their job right.

    'Soni' is one of the most extraordinary films I have seen in a while. A bloated climax aside, the gripping and sometimes unnerving examination of the casual office sexism of Delhi's two female cops stays away from being a rant because this is a deeply unflinching and quietly moving film. Ivan Ayr has a command on storytelling that is solid, but the film's excellence lies mostly in its debut actresses Saloni Batra and Geetika Vidya, who do as compelling work as the film's compelling frames: grim, honest and organic. This is a film which is easily accessible (available on Netflix), and an unlikely, timely crowd-pleaser that's wounding and wonderful. It's the strongest cinema of the year, and you should just not miss it.

    A simplistic film with no sort of intention to bend reality. If you're looking for plot twists or a fast-paced, action-packed sequence of events, you're bound to be disappointed. This film does nothing of the sort. It only presents an unedited reality check. A must watch a and much-needed genre in the era of exaggerated and over-hyped Bollywood films.

    Maybe the most realistic film on woman-empowerment in India. Kudos!

    what a beautifully crafted and intelligent film. the whole seting is also very authentic and the story never becomes moral or over the top judgemental. a very fine watch and brilliant acting.

    So personal and yet so gritty. Nuanced writing, bold direction, great camerawork and beautiful performances.
