  • There is such energy and vigour and openness in this movie. If Sadat continues with Quodrat's life story, there could be something like Truffaut going on here, blended with poetic gentleness of Kiarostami.

  • What sets "Orphanage" apart are the moments when Qodrat's imagination makes Bollywood-esque musical numbers out of his fantasies.

  • A small yet touching chronicle where innocent teenage boys fall prey to socio-political forces way beyond their control.

    May 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A coming-of-age story that uses the language of cinema to tell its story.

    June 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Tenderness, grief, vulnerability are all easier to understand when filtered through the lush lens of Bollywood.

    May 17, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Although the cultural specifics are interestingly and credibly depicted, there's much that's recognisable to all - as it portrays raging hormones, the quest to fit in, and to find your place.
