And while Chittagong falls well short of being a great film, it can't help but be an important one. And Pain keeps it honest.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
What makes Chittagong particularly special is the way it depicts heroism not as muscle-flexing, chest-thumping, rhetoric-driven bravado (as in standard 'war' films) but simply as audacious acts of defiance by ordinary people in the face of grave risk and

Chittagong may not make a deafening sound at the box-office as a multi-budget mega starrer offering but it surely is one rare gem that deserves to be seen and appreciated.
Mansha Rastogi, Now Running
It is with a certain sense of expectation that one goes to watch Chittagong. The familiarity of the story, the courage and daring of its protagonists, our love for armchair patriotism and now the regrouping of the main cast of the Gangs of Wasseypur have

K N Gupta, Smash Hits
Although authentic in its depiction of the era in which the story is set, impressive in its scale, and consistent in its tone and mood, 'Chittagong' isn't too engaging a film.
