Court - Movie Reviews

Alas, as an indictment of our legal system, Court doesn't prick deeply
REDIFF
It’s a lot to say in one film but Tamhane, who also wrote the film, does it with impressive economy and elegance
Hindustan Times
The multiple-award winning film (including the recent National award for Best Feature) is aptly titled
Sify
Court movie review: It is a searing, unmissable film​, the best you will see this year
Indian Express
The multiple-award winning film (including the recent National award for Best Feature) is aptly titled, to begin with
Sify
“Court” is a rare film that creates drama out of the humdrum lives of ordinary people, whose limited world view and biases affect the lives of others in more ways than they can imagine
Devoid of the dramatic showdowns between lawyers showcasing their knowledge of Urdu, the film takes us to dreary alleys of our judicial system where there is no Sunny Deol or Amrish Puri to liven up the proceedings
The Hindu
Apart from exposure to cinematic brilliance, the film provides a wider and better understanding of the Indian Judicial System.

Precisely why it makes you uneasy, makes you think and stays with you for a long long time

Passing the judgment completely in favour of art house afficandos and critics. Chaitanya Tamhane’s debut multilingual ‘Court’ is an outstanding piece of art. Chaitanya has created a realistic, arty and observed take on ‘Court’ and its people.. where the title plays the protagonist in an atmospheric metaphoric ground.. A truly deserved National award winner of the year as the best films.. ‘Court’ stands in the league of ‘Salam Bombay’, in its atmosphere, ‘Chakra’ in its realism ,and ‘Mohan Joshi Hazir Ho’ in its tease and niggle.

I came out of the theatre with a lot more than that.
BollywoodLife
That's quite obviously a judgment in its favour.
First Post
A film so real that you can almost touch it. Please go watch it. The audience needs such films more than the film needing the audience
JAGRAN
A cheeky look at our flawed legal system

A film so real that you can almost touch it. Please go watch it. The audience needs such films more than the film needing the audience
The best thing about this multiple award-winning film is that it seems really simple at the outset
That's the beauty of this film; it does not preach or try to influence you in any way. COURT is a fictionalized account of hard-hitting facts!
Glam Sham
Go for this rare gem, strongly recommended!
BoxOfficeCapsule
Assuredly directed and intelligently written by debutant Chaitanya Tamhane, Court is a riveting watchIt's not a stretch to say that Court marks the release of the finest film of 2015
India Today
The Indian Judiciary system and its ambiguous laws get a new meaning in this film.
