Critic Reviews for Village Rockstars

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

  • Village Rockstars is confident and sincere, its story unfolding at a languid but controlled pace.

  • All the kids are natural actors, but Bhanita Das is a standout in every scene. As the work-worn mother, Basanti Das embodies the refreshing lack of sentimentality that gives the film its modern attitude.

  • Pluckily optimistic and unsentimental to a fault, writer-director Rima Das' second film is a tonic to third world poverty porn.

  • While Rima Das intended the film to be a tribute to her village, her sensitivity and warmth guarantees that it also captures the innocence of childhood - and the doting bond between mothers and daughters.

  • Kids pass the time climbing trees or sinking into the marsh, Das's camera capturing them as lively extensions of nature.

    Jan 28, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Das' warm direction conveys a palpable affection for these people. But the thin plot keeps the audience at a distance.
