Chhapaak Critic Reviews & Ratings

‘Chhaapak’ is a sensitive film with a delicate, yet powerful, handling of a heinous crime against women, and an important story that needs to be heard.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-3.5/5
Its strength is in its quietude. It goes about its business with minimal fuss. The film is both moving and important. And its leading lady is in very fine form.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3/5
Director Meghna Gulzar and actor Deepika Padukone notch up a few points in this commendable effort.

Deepika Padukone delivers a solid, realised performance.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Chhapaak is like a splash that leaves you misty with emotions, if not entirely drenched.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-4/5
Chhapaak is so worryingly true and organically empathetic that it leaves you wholly, deeply agitated, when you're good to go.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-4/5
Chhapaak is solid, uncomfortable viewing, but it is also meditative and meandering.

Chhapaak, the onomatopoeic rendition of the heinous act of dousing one with acid, manages a narrative that’s more sensitive than exploitative.

Chhapaak is powered by good intentions and progressive messaging but the film is undermined by a flawed screenplay.

  • News 18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-3.5/5
Chhapaak means ‘splash’ and the film with its powerful message is likely to make a splash too. Take a bow, ladies.

Meghna Gulzar keeps her firm hold on the subject while the powerful performance of Padukone combines to make this film an essential watch.

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-3.5/5
‘Chhapaak’ is life-affirming and sobering, so don’t duck this disturbing and compelling drama.

CHHAPAAK is a brave attempt at highlighting an issue and the crime that exists in our society.

Overall Average Rating - 3.4/5
