Critic reviews and ratings

  • A clean, fresh movie about growing up in 1980's India. Family, friendship and love (in that order) are the elements of this teen-capers flick.

    79

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a refreshing, heart-warming tale that makes us nostalgic of the good old days.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has its heart in the right place. A film that arrives with zilch expectations, but succeeds in taking you back in time when life was simpler and sweet.

  • ...may not score high on the entertainment quotient and is definitely not meant for the popcorn guzzlers. But the film has a piquant charm to it, spilling over with mood, sentiment and message.

  • ...what makes Bubblegum an entertaining watch is the absolutely realistic & mature treatment to adolescent issues generally discarded as frivolous.

  • ...suffers from some amount of narrative drabness, and some strange too-quick transitions. But it is a film that needs to be noted for its appealing cast and being true to itself.

  • ...truly touching and worth a watch.

  • The pic is a sweet, rare, candid personal piece; the kind of filmmaking the market has least patience for.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The problem is that here is a film that serves up nostalgia for adults, yet a major portion of this movie is designed for kids. It is in this quest for fine balance that Bubble Gum finds itself overreaching and falls short.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...its simple, no-frills storytelling is refreshing, surrounded as we are by technically overwhelming and highly dramatic films with too much to say. Some could find the film refreshingly minimalist; but many will find it too sparse.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ..small film with a big heart but loses itself for amateurish efforts.
