  • Stephen Carty @ Flix Capacitor
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Nair adds a thriller element by shifting back and forth between Changez’s story and the escalating hysteria in the present time, all the while making us question Changez’s part in it. The frustrating thing is, that ends up getting lost in the shuffle.
  • Kathy Gibson @ Access Bollywood
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Serious and suspenseful, rich in subversive complexities about the roots of extremism.
  • [New – 5/30] | Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit
    • Excerpt: Novelistic film wants to spark discussion about race and fear
  • [New – 5/30] | Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
  • John Nesbit @ Old School Reviews
    • Excerpt: among the most provocative releases of the year.
  • Jonathan Richards @ www.jonrichardsplace.com
    • Excerpt: With the great cinematographer Declan Quinn (brother of Aidan) capturing the images that underline the differences between the two worlds, Nair spins out a story that doubles as a psychological and a political thriller. The stakes rise, the tension mounts, the atmosphere grows incendiary, the air becomes hard to breathe.
