Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar Reviews (Top Critics)

Dibakar Banerjee is as much a sociologist as he is a filmmaker. His movies - even when they are shorts for anthologies - are layered commentaries on the mostly terrifying state of the nation. In Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, he joins hands with another astute social commentator, Varun Grover, who has co-written the film. The result is a chase film that is much more than a chase film.

Nothing is what it seems to be, Sandeep aur Pinky Faraar wants to tell us. Promising young private bankers are actually bilking the system. Suspended cops and counterfeiters have hearts of gold. Sandeep is a woman while Pinky is a burly policeman.

"Which girl would you like to pick up in a club, the one wearing lipstick or the one without it? I'd pick up the one without because she's not there with the plan of sleeping with someone" this conversation between two guys in a car intriguingly starts the film. The next thing we know, Pinky (Arjun Kapoor) from Haryana Police is at a hotel to escort a famous banker Sandeep Kair aka Sandy Walia (Parineeti Chopra).

You'd expect a suspense thriller or a dark comedy to keep you intrigued from start to finish, but Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar misses the plot despite having so much to explore. Unfortunately, its lazy writing and slow pace ruin its chances of clicking with the audience. Director Dibakar Banerjee's film touches upon bank scams and the elderly people who are victimised by them, an idea that had potential, but the narrative goes haywire.

Artfully eccentric, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar gives Bollywood conventions a wide berth. It proffers nothing that one would expect from a tale of two fugitives yoked together by circumstances. It isn't a romantic road movie nor a bickering-pair-on-the-lam thriller. Suffice to say, it is a Dibakar Banerjee film. That is the only label one can pin on it.

The Indian Express
By Shubhra Gupta (3/5)

The moment the film opens, you snap to attention. There's a car being driven at reckless speed. There are a few uncouth youth in it. Their words and diction can only belong to a certain class of repressed, entitled Dilli Jat boys who come out in the night, looking for some action. Your nerves thrum. Anything can happen on these roads, with these characters. Something does, and wham, the film has us by the jugular.
