Bharat Critic Reviews & Ratings

Bharat is well-intentioned, entertaining and doesn’t succumb to the trappings of commercial potboilers. The fact that it tries a bit too hard to prove that, is its problem.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-2/5
In the end, Bharat is exhausting and pointless. It exists only to add to the legend of Salman Khan as a selfless provider, the man who has a heart as big as his biceps!

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-2/5
Despite stray moments that are mildly interesting, especially the final passages, much of the potential of the ambitious storyline remains unrealized.

It’s a pity that the director-star duo don’t take this as far as they could. They had a story which had the potential to become a solid reckoner of post-Independence nation-building, and how things rolled from then on, and a free hand to craft it.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2.5/5
The rest of the 167-minute movie is an unfeeling and overstretched affair that botches its source material and squanders the opportunity to say anything meaningful about Bharat’s journey.

Bharat begins and ends well. Ali stages the Partition sequence with skill – we see the violence but as the camera swirls around the chaos, the emphasis is on emotion.

Bharat -- Salman and director Ali Abbas Zafar tell you from the very first scene -- will make you cry. But it will also give you action, romance, drama and definitely, comedy.

  • India Today | Review By - Ananya Bhattacharya | Rating-3/5
It is the quintessential Big Salman Khan Film with all its trappings. Romance, comedy (and a lot of it, thanks to Sunil Grover), drama, action, emotion.

A scattered attempt at stringing a heart-wrenching story of separation and reunion, this one cumulatively results in a melodramatic mess that overtly idolises its one-dimensional lead.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-2/5
Bharat makes for a painfully dull and meandering film. Bharat goes on and on. And just when you think it’s over, it goes on for some more time.

On the whole, BHARAT is a super-entertainer with emotions as its strong USP and Salman Khan like never before.

Overall Average Rating - 2.75/5
