Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: 4/5 | 8/10
Newton is one of the finest political satires we have seen in the last couple of years ... Full Review

Neil Soans | Times of India: 4/5 | 8/10
‘Newton’ has dared to take on an issue that our vast majority turns a blind eye to, and slaps us out of our blissful ignorance. Amidst laughing, it’ll leave you thinking, which – and we need to be reminded of this – is what good cinema should do. Both your funny bone and your grey cells will thank you for watching it ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 4/5 | 8/10
Newton is relevant and timely without being boring or inaccessible. You could say it lays on its message too thick in the end, or that the pace occasionally slips. But these are minor nigglings that never dent the impact of its thrust. I’m going with four out of five. It’s easily one of, if not the best Hindi film you’ll see this year ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 4/5 | 8/10
Newton's fight against the system was searing and memorable ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 4/5 | 8/10
It's a testament to Rao's sober performance that in spite of his character's blatant underdog-ness, he remains difficult to like. He could have easily bastardized Newton into the village-idiot-simpleton caricature ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 4/5 | 8/10
Except for momentary descent into needless cliche, and a couple of flat notes, Newton stays firmly on course ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4/5 | 8/10
Delectably free-flowing, brilliantly written and wonderfully well-acted film ... Full Review

Bedatri D. Choudhury | The Film Stage: B | 7/10
Newton is a political film, but it is also a very witty. So there is no lecturing, no overt sloganeering, but only a very wry, ironical take on the way things function in India ... Full Review

Alex Lines | Film Inquiry: - | 5/10
Despite its cynical viewpoint on the state of politics in India, Newton is primarily a goofy comedy which never really rises above the level of 'amusing' ... Full Review

Jade Budowski | Decider: - | 7.5/10
Newtown succeeds because of the powerful emotional story it tells; while it is incredibly gut-wrenching, it leaves viewers with a message of hope and unity, and a vital call to action ... Full Review

Jessica Kiang | Variety: - | 7/10
Easy to watch, easy to enjoy and easy to leave with one's preconceptions wholly unchallenged ... Full Review

Deborah Young | The Hollywood Reporter: - | 7/10
Both exasperating and endearing in the title role, Rao again shows he is a chameleon actor whose gift for poker-faced comedy revs up the figure of a rigid young civil servant ... Full Review

J Hurtado | ScreenAnarchy: - | 7/10
It is clear that Masurkar is the real deal ... Full Review

Virat Nehru | 4:3 Film: - | 9/10
The quietly devastating power of Newton is that the sense of universality embedded in its narrative forces the viewer to question political representation, true representation, in their own country ... Full Review

Sarah Ward | Screen International: - | 7.5/10
Understanding Newton as a person, not just a symbol of unyielding principles, makes both the amusing and terse altercations all the more effective, particularly as the story's path and message become increasingly obvious ... Full Review

Raja Sen | NDTV: - | 7/10
Amit Masurkar’s Newton is a dry and intriguing look at an India we don’t usually see – and shows us how hard it is to take elections seriously ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3/5 | 6/10
I’m watching this movie again, just to show my support for such films, and witness the magical duo of Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi once again. You’ll not get an item song, seeti-maar dialogues or hero beating ten goons kind of situations in this film, but what will you get – is a pure & innocent film trying to explain something ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 4/5 | 8/10
I strongly suggest that you stay till the very last credit has rolled off the screen ... Full Review

India Today: 4/5 | 8/10
Newton makes you want to be a more diligent Indian. It’s a film that tells you that cynicism won’t take us anywhere. It’s a film that makes you want to not give up on incredible India. And it brings all these feelings by keeping you invested in the outcome of the election ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: - | 7/10
Watching the film I was struck by the artistic landmines it could have potentially got trapped in but manages to navigate well ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3.5/5 | 7/10
While filled with startling insights and questions, and buoyed by terrific performances throughout, Newton suffers from a lack of end-to-end clarity. It is a near-great film, but one that for some reason doesn’t express itself fully ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 4/5 | 8/10
Masurkar makes humour his weapon of choice and sets up a satire that leaves you entertained, but also brings to fore some uncomfortable questions. He also manages to stay neutral and doesn’t pass a judgement on any of the sides ... Full Review

Reuters: - | 8/10
For those of us who are election junkies, Newton is a welcome peek into the fascinating world of an Indian general election and the processes and ideologies that govern it. But even if you don't care about elections, Newton works on so many other levels ... Full Review

Live Mint: - | 8/10
Amit Masurkar’s film—arguably the best Hindi feature of 2017—shines a light on cracks in the system…can say with confidence that Newton thrilled me like no other Hindi film this year ... Full Review

Deccan Chronicle: 2.5/5 | 5/10
You might leave the theatres enlightened but the only thing you’ll take away home is Rajkummar Rao’s finesse ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Does it hold you right till the very end, gently nudging you to think about ‘the greatest internal security threat to our country?’ Hell, yeah. That way, Newton packs a full-ton, and deserves full marks! ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Filmfare: 4.5/5 | 9/10
Funny, relevant and deeply gratifying, Newton is a veritable modern classic ... Full Review

Sify: - | 8/10
Newton shakes us up in ways that are not visible to the naked eye ... Full Review

Glamsham: 4/5 | 8/10
NEWTON is a stark, dark, witty and symbolic gem presenting the mockery of democracy observed in certain parts of India. Powered by unbeatable performances and constantly amusing humour. NEWTON is a cinematic action on screen that deserves favorable reaction from the concerning and thinking audience. A must for those who yearn for quality and art in cinema ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 4/5 | 8/10
Brilliantly enacted, well-written and smartly directed, Newton is a must-watch if you have a craving for good cinema ... Full Review

Wogma: - | 9/10
I feel the need to visit this film again and have my kids watch it too – because this is a once in the blue moon film, the details of which, cannot be digested in one viewing ... Full Review

Now Running: 4/5 | 8/10
A stickler for rules, Newton Kumar’ stubbornness and reality clash beautifully in this wonderfully written film ... Full Review
