Khandaani Shafakhana Critic Reviews & Ratings

While this film’s intent is bang on, what it really needed was a heavier dose of humour and entertainment.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3.5/5
Watch the film not just for the tricky theme it tackles, but also for the way it does so.

From a comedy with a strong ‘social’ component which could have been a barrel of meaningful laughs, it turns into a soppy melodrama.

The film has its heart in the place but suffers for playing sexual problems for jokes and unnecessary melodrama.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-2/5
There isn’t enough humour of the gentle or wicked variety across the sluggishly-paced film to communicate its larger themes.

It’s a lovely idea but the director and the writer a make a hash of it – it takes forever to get started and has little logic.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-2/5
With so many maladies plaguing the movie, it's too bad there's nothing like a scriptwriting Shafakhana.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-2/5
Unfortunately, Khandaani Shafakhana is not the film that the doctor ordered as a cure for boredom.

The gags here lack punchlines that would justify the build-up and even while most of the performances seem on the ball, it doesn’t come together.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-2/5
While the message behind this film is laudable, it isn’t always exciting.
