Rohit Vats | Hindustan Times: 3/5
Anaarkali of Aarah brings forth a world that’s out of focus and needs our attention. Marginalised sections are fighting their own battles in this part of the globe and Anaarkali Of Aarah wants us to be sympathetic to them. Being privy to their emotions doesn’t seem a bad idea ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5
The patriarchal society has a way of holding women responsible for the atrocities they themselves face. This movie questions this very mind-set and offers a refreshing take on women and their sexuality ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3.5/5
Swara Bhaskar film is a full-bodied, crackling watch. With Anar, Swara Bhaskar gets a role worthy of her. The film uses lines and situations involving crudity but never turns vulgar. Nowhere does Anaarkali of Aarah makes you cringe, and that’s a real achievement ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | News18: 4/5
The Most Relevant Film of This Season. The film works for its tight script- which never dwindles- and for its powerful story ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5
Swara Bhaskar Is Vibrant In Disappointingly Tepid Film. It is the kind of film that you want to applaud, especially on account of the concerns that it articulates. But it leaves you deeply dissatisfied ... Full Review

Surabhi Redkar | Koimoi: 3.5/5
Swara Bhasker Kills Misogyny With A Power Packed Performance, her brazen act truly binds you to this film ... Full Review

Savera R Someshwar | Rediff: 4/5
The fact that this is not a choice many women in India have may make the movie seem simplistic, but that does not lessen its importance. We all need heroes. Anaarkali, make no mistake, is one. Yes, Anaarkali Of Aarah might well be a fairy tale. But it is one that is well told. Very well told ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | FirstPost: 3/5
Swara Bhaskar champions this fiesty film with a message ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | DNAIndia: 3.5/5
It is stunning in thought, spellbinding in plot and utterly gripping in the way the story of a small-town dancer-singer’s adventures in lecher-land unfolds ... Full Review

Pallabi Dey | Deccan Chronicle: 3/5
Swara's dauntless act saves this tedious tale. In this insipid and lackluster story, Swara’s performance and the cast’s command over colloquial Bhojpuri lingo stand out ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 3/5
Debutant director Avinash Das is a brave new voice with a refreshing take on women and their sexuality. But the screenplay fails to offer him the needed support. For instance, in the first 30 minutes nothing significant happens ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 3.5/5
This is feisty Swara Bhaskar, simultaneously submissive and full of desi swag -- her gait, expressions, and accent absolutely spot-on. She floors you with her subtle moves. As does 'Anaarkali of Aarah', for the most part. It's hard to come across a performance so gut-wrenchingly real ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Filmfare: 3.5/5
Keeping in line with Hindi cinema's new found passion for strong women protagonists and their resilient stories, Anarkali Of Aarah is the pitch perfect lesson in relevant feminism. This one's a must watch, whether you live in a metro or in rural India ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 3/5
This is what perhaps sets Anaarkali of Aarah apart from a Gulabi Gang or a Sonali Cable. All three films are set around gimmicky small-town hues and crowd-pleasing feminist undertones, but one lets its lady grow naturally as more than just a ‘resounding statement,’ while the other two cry themselves hoarse about their token braveness ... Full Review

Jansatta: 3/5
स्वरा भास्कर का शानदार अभिनय और दमदार स्क्रिप्ट ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 3.5/5
It's debatable how much it will excite the hoi polloi but certainly ANAARKALI OF AARAH is an appositely trenchant and rustic cry for women empowerment backed by Swara Bhaskar's top notch performance ... Full Review

Swapnal Sonal | Filmi Pop: 3.5/5
फिल्‍म देखि‍ए, सोच बदल जाएगी ... Full Review

IndiaGlitz: 3/5
Anaarkali of Arrah is a girl power tale with hard hitting performance by Swara Bhaskar. The movie has its flaws, but the merits are high enough to make it a decent one time watch for sure ... Full Review
