Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India (TOI):

Dharam Sankat Mein says it all – here’s a movie that reflects a dilemma. Dharampal Trivedi (Paresh) is Ahmedabad’s leading caterer, a happy Hindu with a dislike of Muslims, extending to his quarrelsome neighbour Mehmood Nazeem Ali Shah Khan Bahadur (Annu). Dharampal’s son Amit wants to marry Shraddha, fervent follower of motorcycle-riding…

Book My Show:

Religion is a tricky topic for Indian filmmakers to tackle. Given the current scenario in the nation, you have to walk on eggshells in order to keep everyone happy, while also uncovering the truth behind blind faith. It is only recently that the genre of Religious Satire has been explored in Bollywood…

Mid-Day:

The best thing about ‘Dharam Sankat’ is its story. The plot attempts to show an uncomfortable truth that perhaps each of us has experienced at some point in life, but are largely reluctant to make a conversation point.

The Indian Express:

A film that dares to highlight subjects no one wants to touch these days, given the kind of widespread paranoia there is about religion and the social compact some of its dodgy practitioners force upon believers, needs an automatic pat on the back…

India Today:

We live in a time when constant reports of religious intolerance still pour in through the media. As a result, there is a sense of outrage that simmers but never boils over…

Glamsham:

Take OMG: OH MY GOD, mix it with PK, add a little of a Pop singer angle, put it in a mixer and whip for 4 seconds. Voila! You have DHARAM SANKAT MEIN. However, since there is a mish-mash of two movies, we have a rather crude version of how religion has taken over the sanity of people…
