THE BLUE UMBRELLA is a well-made film but it's for a handful of viewers in a handful of cities. More for the Festival circuit.

Vishal Bhardwaj the director describes it as a 'children's film for adults'.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Bharadwaj’s Umbrella comes pretty close to the spirit of that tradition and is limned by bravura performances by Pankaj Kapur and Shreya Sharma, surely meriting a matinee out with the family.
Khalid Mohamed, Hindustan Times 
Pure and unadulterated -- two words that do justice to Vishal Bhardwaj's cinematic adaptation of Ruskin Bond's novel THE BLUE UMBRELLA.

Vishal Bhardwaj's Blue Umbrella is a masterpiece of understatement

The Blue Umbrella may not appeal to all, but a different brand of cinema usually doesn’t. But that doesn’t stop the movie from ending up a well-made product. Barring a few deficiencies here and there, The Blue Umbrella is a simple and well-executed film,

'The Blue Umbrella' has not only open gates and vision for "inspirational" cinematic works but has delivered a relevant genre to the bunch of modern filmmakers who have shown insane and insatiable desire for irreverent Hollywood rip-offs
