Saindhav Critic Reviews & Ratings

Overall, Saindhav is an intriguing attempt at blending emotional depth with action, but its execution doesn't consistently hit the mark.

Saindhav is an avoidable film; fans can catch it on OTT.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Sangeetha Devi Dundoo | Rating-NA
Saindhav is earnest in its world building and emotional family drama but sorely lacks the smartness required for a gritty thriller.

Venkatesh's desi John Wick is decent, but it's Nawazuddin Siddiqui who steals the show.

Where the film falters is the screenplay, which fails to offer a high.

  • Quint | Review By - Sujatha Narayanan | Rating-3/5
The film, however, works to a large extent also because its characters are given sharp, intelligent and interesting lines to deliver.

‘Saindhav’ suffers from poor writing, and it is quite shocking that a director who had delivered two edge-of-a-seat thrillers had come up with this film.

But where Saindhav shines is its action sequences. They are violent, built up very well and the force is felt.

  • South First | Review By - Prakasah Pecheti | Rating-2/5
Inconsistent story and plain narrative sink the film.

  • OTT Play | Review By - Avad Mohammad | Rating-2.5/5
Saindhav has a routine story, dull execution, and decent action. The narrative is slow and takes forever to get into the groove.

  • 123 Telugu | Review By - 123 Telugu | Rating-2.75
On the whole, Saindhav has a good concept, but the narrative is underwhelming and flat for the most part.
