Udaan –a review We caught the movie Udaan quite late, film reviews in newspapers in the week...
Sulekha Reviewer, Sulekha
Anurag Kashyap's cinema is radical, it defines norms but the question is how far can one Go? Its not 'unbelievable' that some people don't 'believe', but a good cinema always tells two sides of a story. Anurag pens 'Udaan' with Vikramaditya Motwane and also gives him the chance to helm the film where the story is told in only one angle from the boys point of view and further it doesn't explain the era, means in which year, period, decade the incident took place is absent. If done so, the questions which will follow might not have come up.

We lost touch after we completed schooling and with the passage of time, I forgot all about him. Till I watched Udaan and his face loomed large at the very start of the film. Udaan does that to you!Poignant, unsettling and disturbing, Udaan is a brilliant
Udaan is both a celebration and a triumph of that spirit rebellious.
