“..the resolution, showcasing bloody vigilante-ism, is problematic. Is that the only definition of 'mardaani', and is that something to be celebrated? Something more pragmatic, and yes, more real, would have served its consistently watchable leading lady..”
by Shubhra Gupta [Indian Express]
3 of 5

“..Mardaani is not a perfect film, but it's better than many of the blockbusters Bollywood churns out regularly. It's a well-made commercial Hindi film - reasonably short and minus songs - that's trying to say something..”
by Rajeev Masand [IBN Live]
“..in all fairness, Mardaani begins well, with Mukerji looking refreshingly credible as a stylish, no-nonsense police officer..”
by Deepanjana Pal [Firstpost]
3.5 of 5

“..if you are tired of the nonsensical action, and over-the-top drama, 'Mardaani' is the film for you. The movie has the power to invoke thought and subjects you to question the ultimately ineffective candle light vigils..”
by Aparna Mudi [Zee News]
2.5 of 5

“..a bland version of Liam Neeson's Taken..”
by Sukanya Verma [rediff.com]

POD :

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
