Feminism in India: - | 7/10
Ajji, though not a wholly mainstream Hindi film but closer to arthouse noir, does a provocative job of capturing the psychic reality that informs the fears and desires of far too many girls and women in contemporary Indian society ... Full Review

Moving, till it descends into the clich├ęs of the rape revenge genre ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: - | 4/10
The film fails to rise above the claptrap. Ajji is no more than Mom and Maatr at their most excessive; it just locates the same rape narrative at the other end of the social spectrum ... Full Review

"Ajji" is a great film that manages to combine the revenge thriller with the noir and the exploitation film, through a no-punches-pulled presentation of a theme with social implications ... Full Review

Elizabeth Kerr | The Hollywood Reporter: - | 8/10
Exactly as heartbreaking and infuriating as it needs to be ... Full Review

Fionnuala Halligan | Screen International: - | 7/10
Direct and effective, Ajji finds the lurid line between child rape drama and genre revenge thriller and walks it steadily through to a satisfyingly gruesome conclusion ... Full Review

Reuters: - | 7/10
For all its flaws, this is a welcome break from the other sanitised rape-revenge dramas we've seen this year in the form of Maatr and Mom, and one that doesn't flinch at the brutal nature of its subject ... Full Review

Live Mint: - | 6/10
This is a film that’s frequently well-directed but has trouble reigning itself ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 4/10
Outrage over the rape of children is easily provoked, but it takes hard work to make a movie about the justice that is due to them. Ajji takes the easy way out ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Filmfare: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Ajji is a bit of a mixed bag. The film has some really powerful moments. But the problematic treatment and the art-heavy approach keep it from being the ideal thriller ... Full Review

Book My Show: - | 7/10
A beautiful and thrilling execution of an appalling story ... Full Review

Movie Talkies: 4/5 | 8/10
Ajji is dark, brutal, cynical and traumatic. The cinematographer deserves a pat on the back for highlighting the dark and dingy underbelly of Mumbai- the claustrophobic slums, the open gutters, the sinister construction site ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 8/10
Ajji makes for bleak and gritty viewing, but it is essential ... Full Review

Glamsham: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A bloody gruesome ‘cut’ above indie. A largely disturbing and terrifically haunting sequence screams in its silence when the antagonist Dhavle ... Full Review

Spotboye: 3/5 | 6/10
For those rare qualities and for Sushama Deshpande’s implosive incarnation of a Grandmother Courage, Ajji is worth walking miles for ... Full Review

The News Minute: - | 7/10
A dark, chilling fable on child rape and vigilante justice. Sushama Deshpande is superb as the grandma ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: 3/5 | 6/10
Notwithstanding that contrivance though, Ajji is a sincere and hurtful attempt at gender justice- though a trifle clinical and appears more mechanical than affecting ... Full Review
