Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 3/5 | 6/10
The soundscape is heightened, as one would expect from a movie based on climbing to the top. But timing the background score is far more important than the score itself ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
Poorna is a rare Hindi film that travels to the heart of rural landscape. Even rarer is the use of a smattering of Telugu in the dialogues, which, along with an effective musical score, augments the authenticity of the film's setting and soundscape ... Full Review

Rediff: 2/5 | 4/10
This movie is a perfect example of a city-bred director scanning our heartlands, and instead of taking in all the complexity, all the denseness, stopping to ask himself, “What are the corrections I can highlight in these lives, and how do I stitch together a narrative around these corrections?” ...

An underwhelming biopic on the youngest girl to climb the Everest ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 7/10
Priya's carefree spirit, stifled by convention, and Poorna's hard-earned courage, bolstered by Priya's sacrifice, elevate a standard-issue celebration of achievement and national glory into something tender, moving and actually inspiring ... Full Review

Murtaza Ali Khan | A Potpourri Of Vestiges: 4/5 | 8/10

Poorna is the story of Poorna Malavath, who at 13 years became the youngest girl to climb Mount Everest. Although the story is inspiring, the telling of the tale is tedious ... Full Review

Open Magazine: - | 5/10
These are laudable, nation-building achievements, but, at the same time, the absence of any edginess to the performances and the easy resolution of all conflicts, makes us often feel that we are watching a sentimental, promotional film ... Full Review
