Critic Reviews for Delhi Crime Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Delhi Crime fails foremost as a long-form reportage that demands context for keen observations.

May 21, 2019 | Full Review…

A moody, well-acted serialized crime drama that sets out to explore a known story in more detail.

Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Delhi Crime is not fast-paced, but it's eye-opening and wrenching-and it makes me wonder how many more discoveries like this are lying in wait in my corner of the Netflix floodplain.

Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The show just about manages to get away with its apologism - largely because of how well-written and likeable the investigators are, especially police chief Vartika Chaturvedi.

Apr 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An above-average genre exercise.

Apr 26, 2019 | Full Review…

The cinematography, music, locations and dialect make the series immersive, detailed, acutely affecting and tinged with hopelessness.

Apr 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A highly potent Netflix drama whose seven parts deliver a fictionalized version of events, though one largely true to most of the essentials of the case.

Mar 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Although Delhi Crime serves as a noir story ultimately bent toward righteousness, at the series' conclusion, it's difficult to tell for whom justice will be served.

Mar 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

With each episode covering a day's events or less, it gives Delhi Crime the immediacy of something like the Kiefer Sutherland-starrer series 24, showcasing how the Delhi Police responded in a swift manner and nabbed all six suspects in less than a week.

Mar 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Delhi Crime is gut-wrenching, stylishly directed, passionately performed, and most importantly, not at all exploitative.

    The best true crime series from India. Simply outstanding. Kudos to the casting director and the line producers for giving us such a convincing Delhi show.

    Good police procedural. Leave it to Netflix to make the heinous crime on which the series is based the result of income inequality & toxic masculinity.

    Detailed research, powerful portrayals, great direction. Highly recommended

    A masterpiece. At last, a Crime TV show that focuses on the police work instead of showing each private life. And they are not smoking or drinking all the time. and the social analysis (patriarcal system, women conditions, police work conditions etc...) A masterpiece in the genre.
