Sonchiriya Critic Reviews & Ratings

Gripping, tense and unpredictable, despite being a slow-burn western, Chaubey’s period thriller makes for a riveting watch.

Sonchiriya is more a display of wonderful cinematography through which the aridness of the Chambal is lensed, than an exploration of despairing people on the edge of the wedge.

Sushant Singh Rajput and Ranvir Shorey’s bandit drama gets a lot right but the slow pace keep it from being a great film.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3.5/5
It draws the themes of crime and retribution, caste and gender, despair and redemption into the near-mythic, overarching sweep of the narrative.

Sonchiriya tries to blend Spaghetti Western style-action drama with social commentary but it isn’t entirely satisfying on either count.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-4/5
Sonchiriya has no time to make nice. Its minefield of volatile impulses and brewing unrest comes alive in Sharma's meticulous screenplay.

  • News18 | Review By - Rohit Vats | Rating-3.5/5
Despite violence, of all kinds, being at the helm, Sonchiriya successfully manages to be a film about the bigger picture and larger good.

But shot against an immense and craggy canvas, what actually keeps you glued to the screen are the gun battle exchanges that seem so precarious that they could go either way.

  • DNA | Review By - Meena Iyer | Rating-3/5
It's unlikely that those in the cities will identify with this offering. But yes, if you're a curious cinema fiend, Sonchiriya will entice you.

SONCHIRIYA is a well-made and a well shot movie with a strong narrative and brilliant performances as its USP.

Overall Average Rating - 3.15/5
