Critic reviews and ratings

  • This may not be as edgy or dark as NH10, but packs in the same amount of trauma.

  • If you thought you have seen it all from Raveena Tandon, think again. She pumps in so much life into the film that it is her performance that steals the show.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the amount of bloodshed, leaves you asking, what is worse. Are the images of rape gorier, or is the bloodshed of the perpetrators of the crime, grosser?

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...deserves a viewing as films like these are the need of the hour as it creates a world where justice is served someway or the other.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...would like to believe its relevance comes from true events that headline news channels regularly, but its typically Bollywood tropes to attain justice modelled on the likes of Aakhri Raasta and Mohra is not half as engaging.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...Raveena alone couldn’t save a thin storyline, and Maatr is just another run-of-the-mill revenge saga.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...while Tandon makes you feel her desperation, the script too simply and unintelligibly transforms her into a vengeance-seeking serial killer.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...disappoints on many levels despite being a relevant film. A veteran or experienced director would’ve turned it into a masterpiece as it had all the element of a hard-hitting, entertaining crime-drama thriller.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...just pretends to make a social statement about rape and revenge and in reality struggles even to be a routine escapist film that does nothing significant for anyone involved.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...Sayed manages to skillfully steer his fantasy of vigilante justice all the way to the ludicrous climax.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Revenge is a dish best served cold; in Maatr it's crass and oddly flat too.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Crass, cringe-inducing and downright sordid, this Raveena Tandon rape-and-revenge thriller makes you ask just one question -- who writes this stuff?

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Subtleties and nuances are obviously beyond Maatr. It deals solely in broad strokes. No matter how much slack you are willing to cut this film, it will still need some more in order to have its glaring gaps glossed over.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...like one of the vigilante justice sagas of the 80s—old fashioned, rough, loud, over the top, and all about offering some kind of emotional catharsis through violence to the woman wronged, rather than any significant thoughts for us to ponder on.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a predictable revenge story that completely ignores the trauma and social stigma that is usually attached to rape victims regardless of their social class.
