  • ...is a small little gem that takes you by surprise and catches you completely unaware.

  • ...works due to several reasons. Firstly, because of its topicality which strikes the right note in this season when India and Pakistan are seeking a new equilibrium in their relationship. Secondly because of its narrative style which is the antithesis of nationalistic chest-beating Gadar-like films.

  • ...a film that all the elements to surprise you.

    Critic rating (?)

  • With a perfectly predictable plotline, if a film still keeps you riveted through its runtime, you know there’s something earnestly right about it.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film has too much to say on sports, politics and human nature. It isn't able to say all of it in a lucid language.

  • ...is not without its flaws but it still leaves you wanting to punch the air!

  • ...this Indo-Pak treatise may have been wah-wahed at film festivals, but all said and seen just about makes it to a notch above the average.

  • Though limited in its story-telling and undistinguished in execution, Lahore redeems itself somewhat by intently playing on the paradox of pacifist intentions realised in the face of a seriously hostile sport.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a well made film by the debutant director and it deserves a dekko at the theatres.

    Critic rating (?)

  • It's a film that could have done with less length and more effort to find a better lead. Fewer cliches too.

    Critic rating (?)

  • It's well-intentioned, has its heart in the right place, and it's an engaging enough watch. But it never rises above that to become a film that could truly make a difference.

  • Lahore should be watched for Farooque's terrific performance and some engaging kickboxing fights in the climax.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Well meaning, but amateurish.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Same old need for sisterhood between two countries which have been at war for what, 6 decades now? Of course, we need truce but not sure if we need a movie on the issue with the backdrop of a sport that seems to mean more war than anything else.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...doesn’t offer any fresh nuances in our troubled cross border relationships, and as a film it remains a decent watch.
