Rahasya - Movie Reviews

We're all too familiar with the unfortunate Aarushi murder case that shocked the nation in 2008. Reminds one of the adage about truth being stranger than fiction
Sify
I’m going with three out of five for Rahasya. It’s a very watchable thriller, inconsistent but never dull. A compelling account inspired by an oddly fascinating case.
Rajeev Masand
Well, the movie is a good murder mystery presented in a thrilling manner with some good performances by its lead actors.
Moviez Adda
Clever filmmakers heavily bank on the curiosity factor that a given incident (in this case, the double murder) generates, but fortunately this film keeps you interested and thrilled through its just about two-hour running time

Sify
This is not film about a neat denouement. Messy lives, sordid relationships, betrayal and revenge run through the veins of the film. Barbara Cartland would have frowned. But Agatha Christie would have assuredly approved
As far as execution is concerned, while the unhurried unfolding of mystery adds depth to the film, it also demands patience from the viewers, which may or may not work in its favour.
Times of India
The strange and mysterious Aarushi Talwar murder case has inspired at least two films based on the botched up murky investigation.
The Hindu
Rahasya is an absorbing and stylish Agatha Christie-style whodunit
Scroll.In
Rahasya is a tight, smooth and well-executed film which is unbelievably underrated
BookMyShow
If you are interested in murder mystery, then do go watch Rahasya
India Today
To make the film dramatic and interesting a lot of fictional characters are added for a good who-done-it murder mystery.
India Today
In a busy Friday, when you have diverse movies releasing, you have one called Rahasya.
Just Bollywood
Rahasya is not the perfect murder mystery. It has its drag moments and so if you have grown-up watching CID, you may like a better version of it.
Koi Moi
Rahasya is a tight, smooth and well-executed film which is unbelievably underrated. With stellar performances by Kay Kay Menon, Tisca Chopra and Ashish Vidyarthi, what makes it tick is the slightly numbing climax
Book My Show
On the whole, RAHASYA can be skipped without any regret
Bollywood Hungama
Inspired by the famous Aarushi murder case
India Glitz
The two hour-long murder mystery is taut; and even though it is packed with all the familiar tropes, the atmospherics ensure that the story never sags, keeping the audience engaged throughout.Ayes
And such films do find audience in plexes but to have good word of mouth without any face value is tough task.Go for this one if you want edge of the seat experience!
BoxOfficeCapsule
Atmospheric chills and a good story
REDIFF
Rahasya movie is based on the infamous Arushi murder case.
Filmi Beat
Filled with snaky twists and turns UVI Film Productions ‘Rahasya’ backed by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures is packed by an absorbing spin. Inspired by the famous Aarushi murder case, ‘Rahasya’ helmed by the talented Manish Gupta lives up to its demand of maintaining a dramatic rhythm and tension powered by terrific performance as the doctors of this genre ordered.
India Glitz
Thanks to these brainy dry fruits, Menon, who plays the CBI chief, is able to solve the murder mystery.

On the whole, RAHASYA can be skipped without any regret
