Raman Raghav 2.0 - Movie Reviews

Not an Easy Watch but Consistently Engaging
News18
It is crude, callous but in trying to whip up suspense, it loses sight of vulnerability
The Times of India
It’s consistently engaging, but doesn’t get under your skin like some of Kashyap’s other films, particularly Black Friday,Gangs of Wasseypur, and the criminally overlooked Ugly
Rajeev Masand
Kashyap skillfully exposes the devil within, and leaves us disturbed
Emirates 24X7
With few mesmeric bits, Anurag Kashyap’s film is atmospheric yet hollow
Indian Express
It is crude, callous but in trying to whip up suspense, it loses sight of vulnerability.
Times of India
Raman Raghav 2.0 is a busy string of shots, with a cut every half a minute on an average.
This movie can be quite the nerve-wracking experience

An Exercise In Empty Shock Value

There is a thin line between making a film about a serial killer and glorifying his actions. With “Raman Raghav 2.0”, Anurag Kashyap seems to be unsure which side of the line he’s standing on.

"Raman Raghav 2.0 is Anurag Kashyap's take on the psychotic serial killer Raman Raghav who terrorised Mumbai during the late 1960s

Keeping the director'€™s trademark violence and bloodshed more or less offscreen, it'€™s far less unpleasant to watch than the child kidnapping story Ugly
The Hollywood Reporter
Anurag Kashyap delivers a gritty, grimy, gut-wrenching story of opposites in order to tell you that they're not really so.

Raman Raghav 2.0 is another triumph for Anurag Kashyap. It sure is not a Gangs of Wasseypur, but the filmmaker knows what to do with his viewers.

KomalsReviews
It isn't an easy film to watch although much of the violence that it depicts is kept off-screen. But the deft manner in which it uses the cinematic resources at its disposal – which, of course, is influenced in part by the film's limited budget – makes it an immersive cinematic experience.

You see, they both kill for pleasure. No, make that one for pleasure. The other for furious vindication for crimes committed against his self worth.

It is dark, very dark and deprived of even a shred of dignity. It makes you feel nauseated at the shocking spread of depravity served to you. But then again, it is unique storytelling. Go for it, if you have the suitable palate.
On the whole, though RAMAN RAGHAV 2.0 promises to be an edgy thriller, the film fails to deliver. It is only Nawazuddin’s brilliant performance that helps you sit through this 140 mins long film.
Free Press Journal
The film is slow and unsteady
Hindustan Times
There is real good cinema in that scene towards the end of the film, and also a reminder that Kashyap has a lot of talent. He just needs to stop making films that are very similar.
