Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...should be watched for its sheer simplicity and also for the message that has been conveyed through the film.

  • ...there are enough goodies in the film to negate the negatives.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Director Fuwad Khan should get the credit for choosing a sensitive subject with the right kind of intention, but unfortunately, the end result is far from what it could have been.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...what makes the film different is the inherent humour, which takes you from point A to B with your smile intact.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Popular entertainment, or a lively, mass-oriented film such as this, is perhaps our most potent counter to a frightening intolerance. That fact alone makes this a very important and brave film.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...isn’t a patch on Oh My God! or PK, both of which boldly lampooned the commercialisation of religion, but the very fact that it exists, dares to broach the matter of Islamophobia among Hindus, and has been passed by the Central Board of Film Certification redeems it somewhat.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...there's simply too much here. The story tries to accommodate a whole host of issues, fake babas to real crimes, and fails.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • A premise that could've been interesting is made long and preachy.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • If this film has uncomfortable moments, it's the preachy parts. The film gets lost somewhere in the middle around some unwanted melodrama.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Worth a watch, if only for ugly truths and performances.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • It is not funny, gets too preachy and has way too predictable storyline.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • With very few moments of fun sandwiched between long stretches of snoozing, Dharam Sankat Mein should be avoided like the ashram of a self-proclaimed baba.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...between its sentimental leanings and farcical outbursts, the superficial sermonising of Dharam Sankat Mein remains just that -- superficial.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Humorous in parts, the film tries too hard to strike home the point.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • It isn't clever neither is it hilariously entertaining- it is just about an average film with certain light moments.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Somewhere in the idea of making a film about Hindu-Muslim identity lurks a noble thought. But Dharam Sankat Mein is a low IQ film that is not really up for the task it sets for itself.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...opens with promise, bringing up concepts that need to be spoken about, but you soon realize that the film is not as radical as it could have been, which should have been clear with its choice of title.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • The crisis at the heart of the plot of Dharam Sankat Mein extends well beyond the conflict that the protagonist confronts. It quickly engulfs the film as a whole as it beats about the bush and barely gets its act together.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • A satire about religious divides that begins well, but disintegrates into bland liberal pieties.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • If you have not had enough of PK and OMG, venture out. If you have seen even the first take on this subject, OMG, you have seen it all.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • To succeed with all this within the framework of a broad-strokes, Censor Board-friendly comedy isn’t easy. At times, you may feel a more appropriate title would have been Fuwad Khan Sankat Mein.
