Siddharth - The Prisoner - Movie Reviews

Siddharth – The Prisoner has won accolades in various film festivals, but these honours are hardly indicative of the movie’s credentials.
SIFY
The film, a sort of Rig Veda meets Ram Gopal Varma, must have sounded suitably lofty at the concept level but as cinema, it is as engaging as watching paint dry. 
NDTV 
A metaphorical film about freedom and desire the film keeps you engrossed. Firstly by its explorations on the leitmotif of greed. And secondly due to Rajat Kapoor's nuanced almost minimalist act of a man in torment.
Times of India
Rajeev Masand
he story begins with Siddharth Roy (Rajat) who just emerges out of prison and he is actually a well known writer who serves prison term (reasons not known). Now, he has got only one thing in mind and that is to come back to the society and regain his lost
Bharat Student
To sum up Siddharth - The Prisoner just doesn't work. With the pace being dreadfully slow the film is one boring watch.. Yawn..!
Now Running
A pity, really, because this movie had the potential to be engrossing. Most of the characters ring true; some, like Krish’s nanny, are well done and the cinematography works. The background score is interesting too, though it gets monotonous after a point
Hindustan Times 
There's a thin line that divides unconventional and experimental cinema.

Pradip Kabra is too weak to stand on his feet

Siddharth Roy (Rajat) is an author who's just got out of prison (we don't know what he was in for!). Picking up pieces of paper from the prison he takes to his type writer feverishly typing out a short story.
