Critics Review/Rating

Times Of India:

Straight away, Talvar is super-sharp, a sword swipe at Bollywood’s song-and-dance, mehendi-fuelled escapism. Inspired by 2008’s Aarushi Talwar double murder case, for which Aarushi’s parents are serving a life-term…

Hindustan Times:

Aarushi Talwar double murder case was one of the most talked-about and followed cases in recent times, both in the media and the public. Can one pick a real life story for a movie and yet manage to make it gripping enough?…

India Today:

Errol Morris’ documentary The Thin Blue Line presented crucial information which is recognised by many as the sole reason why Randall Adams, who was wrongly convicted for murder of a police officer and even sentenced to death, got out of prison…

Rediff:

Talvar is a cleanly-crafted film, says Raja Sen. The scariest part of Meghna Gulzar’sTalvar is when it makes us laugh. A tightly-coiled procedural made with such dryness that it seems, in parts, documentarian — resembling a reenactment more than a feature film — Talvar is one of those rare films…

Glamsham:

TALVAR is a movie on the Aarushi Talwar murder case on which another movie, RAHASYA, was already made and released in January of this year. RAHASYA was a dud. So how different is TALVAR? This one by Meghana Gulzar is more realistic.
