Pink Reviews

  • 80 Koi Moi | Surabhi Redkar

    Pink is a compelling film that forces you to think. A powerful script and backing performances lift this film into the must-watch category! Pink is poignant and powerfully provocative. It is a must-watch for everyone with a blurred vision for modern day women.

  • 80 Hindustan Times | Anupama Chopra

    Pink works because the grimness of the material doesn't weigh on the telling. This isn't a laboured lecture on women's rights. The first half works as a thriller and the second as a courtroom drama. Aniruddha keeps the scenes tight and tense. The writing by Ritesh Shah is terrific. So are the performances. Pink is a powerful film that needs to be seen.

  • 80 Hindustan Times | Rohit Vats

    Pink keeps us gripped from all sides even as a strictly entertainment package. The intricacies of the case unfold like a thriller. You won’t miss the usual Bollywood courtroom theatrics either. Still you will get to know a thing or two about the contemporary feminist debates.

  • 90 The Times of India | Meena Iyer

    Pink is a powerful statement on the existing feudal mindset of a majority of India, where men and women are judged by a different yardstick. And if the man happens to be from a powerful family, then the fight for justice is even more skewed. The performances are pitch-perfect with Bachchan leading the way. Creative producer, Shoojit Sircar, who directed (Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe, Piku) makes another valuable addition to his repetoire.

  • 80 Bollywood Hungama | Bollywood Hungama News Network

    PINK is a compelling film which exposes hypocrisies and double standards against women in our society. With powerful performances from the starcast, the film leaves you shocked, stunned and speechless. At the Box Office, it will be patronised by the multiplex audiences and the positive word of mouth will translate into healthy footfalls for the movie. Don't miss this one as it hammers home a very powerful message.

  • 90 Deccan Chronicle | Mehul S Thakkar

    Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s Pink is an eye opener of sorts in today’s society where many preconceived notions about how women are looked upon as, exist. Kudos to writer Ritesh Shah for maintaining such sensitivity while writing the screenplay of the film. Watching this film should definitely be on your to-do list for the weekend.

  • 70 Indian Express | Shubhra Gupta

    The film starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu sledgehammers the message that when a woman says no, she means no. It underlines a woman’s freedom to her own sexuality. Pink, perhaps called thus because the colour is girly, subverts it and turns it on its head. In its best bits, the film blazes, its call-to-arms radiating outwards and forcing us to acknowledge uncomfortable truths. It has something to say, and says it with courage and conviction. Gather everyone and go; and while you are at it, spread the word.

  • 90 CNN-IBN | Rajeev Masand

    I left the cinema, my mouth dry at the end of Pink. This isn’t just an important film, but also excellently made. It’s a giant leap for Hindi cinema, and easily the best film this year. Pink is not easy viewing. It makes you uncomfortable and is a stark reminder that this could happen to any Indian woman anywhere, not just in Delhi. It works as much as a cautionary tale as it does a wake-up call. The writing, by Ritesh Shah, is excellent, and the performances are consistently terrific. From actors in smaller roles to the central players, there isn’t a false note here.

  • 80 Rediff | Raja Sen

    This is a solid, terse film that makes its points in mainstream fashion with an appropriate lack of subtlety. Pink is a barnstormer -- and it doesn't pull its punches. The film is remarkably well-cast.
