Critic reviews and ratings

  • If there has been a Hindi film this year that has managed to keep me constantly smiling like an idiot yet always on the verge of tears the way this Sharat Katariya film does, I do not remember it.

  • Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma portray the world of Sui Dhaaga with a gentleness that turns everything it touches into gold.

  • ...is sewn together with strong performances and moments that tell a convincing story.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a simple tale told beautifully with strong emphasis on emotions.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a film stitched together beautifully. All for Mauji, Mamta and their tireless drive to be “Made in India”, Sharat Katariya’s latest is worth the watch!

    Critic rating (?)

  • For a movie that stays so true to reality throughout, a few moments towards the climax are the only time a very “filmi” note is struck. But in a wholly heartwarming tale, it's such a small misstep, it barely counts as one.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...gives his viewers a classic story of struggle and persistence. The film culminates in a predictable climax, but that does not diminish the experience of soaking in Sui Dhaaga.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a well-meaning, simply woven, feel-good entertainer that delivers as much as it promises.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is unsatisfying but also poignant.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has everything a feel good family movie should have, it’s an inspiring tale as well with moments but lacks the fresh breeze of air and individuality which Dum Laga Ke Haisha had – the common love for Kumar Sanu for example.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Sharat Katariya’s brushstrokes in 'Sui Dhaaga' may have got much more broad than in his previous outing but you still end up caring for his characters

    Critic rating (?)

  • What eventually endures isn’t the inevitable heart-warming finale but the honesty of the writing and the performances and the subversions, minor and major.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Kudos to writer and director Sharat Katariya for coming up with such a rooted tale. And kudos to Varun Dhawan for agreeing to be part of it. He has tried something totally new for him here.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...so rewarding, so amusing, so steeped in tenderness, affection for the characters and positivity that it makes the ride with Mamta, Mauji and their charmingly eccentric family and friends completely worth it.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • A surprise-free drama that’s well-acted, sweet-natured, and quite satisfying.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • The unimpressive climax is disjointed, a far cry from the tone the film carried up until then. Despite its rousing moments, the film leaves you feeling unfulfilled.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...falls well short of perfection, but it never comes unstuck. It passes muster as a wholesome entertainer embellished with humour, warmth, authentic emotional trappings and actors adept at going seamlessly along with the flow.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is well made. It’s nice and safe and staid. There are several moments that warm the heart, and you cheer when sui-dhaaga win over needle-and-thread. But you always knew they were going to, didn’t you?

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Finesse comes through in language, costumes, and even performances. Not so much in the story writing or telling.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • This could have been a neatly-stitched up narrative with its well-meaning message about the spirit of entrepreneurship, but sadly it unravels in its troubling second half.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • In spite of mediocre humour and the predictable conclusion, Sui Dhaaga is a story worth investing in for all the fine instances of pathos.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a feel-good film about dignity of labour, and the honest toil of a hard-working tailor. Too bad it feels machine-made.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a film that starts well, but eventually disappoints.
