Read below what critics have said about the controversial film “Udta Punjab.”
Manjusha Radhakrishnan of Gulf News said: “Credit is due to Chaubey for taking a grim subject and making it interesting. There are a few dull moments in the second half, but the climax packs a punch. Be sure to give Udta Punjab a shot.”
Lokesh Dharmani of Masala.com said: “The ending of the film also feels a bit abrupt. But how else could a film end when the battle against drugs is still on? Imagine a state with its first line of control has one third of its youth population addicted to substances. That’s more dangerous than terrorism. “I think we all must watch Udta Punjab and educate ourselves.”
Sneha May Francis of Emirates 24/7 said: “Despite the minor flaws, ‘Udta Punjab’ is a movie deserving your time. It explores the highs and the lows with equal flourish.”
