Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is a deceptively simple, remarkable film with a risky concept that has paid off. It is without question one of India’s best of 2017 so far.

  • ...is richly textured with performances, beautifully layered with content, and sprinkled with occasional humor.

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is the opposite of a feel-good film. What's particularly unsettling is that it refers to a reality that's closer to home, and not borrowed from an occurrence in an isolated Gurgaon highway or a small-town tragedy.

  • ...is a bitter sweet and rare adage on complexities in relationship and unprepared parenting that can be a story of any doting young working parent in any metropolitan city.

  • The movie falls short as a study of modern marriage because of Karan’s absence, but it is far more effective as an examination of contemporary parenting.

  • ...starts off with one storyline and ends with another, but fails to capture the gamut of both.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is an insightful and mature relationship drama that showcases the trials and tribulations of parenting in the city.

  • Not all ideas translate well to film and though are some moments of note, if Ribbon works at all, it is credit to Koechlin’s and Vyas’ committed and convincing performances.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...rakes up a lot of issues that deserve at least a discourse in the current scenario, but instead, ends up only fleetingly touching these. Neither the characters nor the narrative take upon the evils and the evil-doers.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Though the movie piques your interest in bits and pieces, especially in the second half, the abrupt end will leave you disappointed.

    Critic rating (?)

  • But as often as the film astutely touches upon the tough choices, and the problems that can crop up, it leaves them, and us, hanging. You are left wanting a little more.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Despite an evident lack of flourishes and drama; a straight, linear narrative; no major ups and downs, nor sideways swings and an unadorned style Ribbon manages to engage.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • The problem with Ribbon is that debutante director Rakhee Sandilya doesn’t provide any new insights.
