Still, Bakrapur has more originality than your run-of-the-mill star-studded film. Now if only the goat could make a Bollywood career out of this, the satire would be complete.
Hindustan Times 
Dum? The movie has a unique and hilarious storyline attached to it. Weak screenplay and lethargic direction ruin the magic of this back humoured script. It's a good concept gone waste just like an interesting bleat of a goat which gets faded after a while

This is one of the most engaging satire's seen in recent times. Janki Vishwanathan's sequestered narrative manages to capture the right mood and moments to make this mocking bird fly even though it belongs to a realm that hasn't seen much creative success in Bollywood. A metaphor on the communal nature of life in middle India, the film starts off as a social satire and ends up harping on the political nature of institutions meant to be otherwise. The so-called protectors of our democracy are shown-up as men with feet of clay, and it's all done with kid gloves on. So there's little room for any offence or disrespect.

Gone are those days when female directors made films about female protagonists. Janaki Vishwanathan's protagonist is neither man nor woman.

Yeh Hai Bakrapur is not a bad film at all. The satire is understated, and its cheeky message on blind faith comes through in the first act without much fuss. The story is predictable if you've managed to catch a glimpse of the poster. A cash-strapped r
