Critic Reviews for The Tashkent Files

All Critics (6) | Rotten (6)

  • Political propaganda is not the worst of its sins, alas. A communal speech by Pankaj Tripathi's character is painful to watch; he warns of a certain community poisoning the entire country and attacking India with its army.

  • The problem here isn't the director's leaning or his point-of-view. It's the way he chooses to camouflage it - that is, the way he chooses to quasi-intellectualize his storytelling skills in order to hide his rather simplistic sense of reasoning.

  • The acting, thanks to the melodramatic nature of the film, is loud and over the top, the dialogue sound bombastic at times.

  • The entire film is a series of eye-roll moments, pockmarked by dialogue that's unintentionally hilarious. We don't really have to wait for the big reveal to see the purpose of the film.

  • The rigour that was needed to prove Agnihotri's thesis is missing, and the biliousness of his selective targeting robs The Tashkent Files of its attempt to being an effective conspiracy thriller.

  • All its sensational content is relevant and important social issues are highlighted, too. But, the storytelling effort is half-baked and lacks the finesse that such a heavy-duty film requires.
