Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 3/5
Sushant Singh Rajput and Ranvir Shorey’s bandit drama gets a lot right but the slow pace keep it from being a great film ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5
Gripping, tense and unpredictable, despite being a slow-burn western, Chaubey’s period thriller makes for a riveting watch. It manages to engage, suspect, shock and transport you to a world where people yearn for salvation over survival ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
Abhishek Chaubey’s very scenic Sonchiriya, tramping along those nooks and crevices of the Chambal, expending hundreds of bullets and quarts of spraying blood, made familiar by countless ‘daaku’ films of the 70s and 80s, almost always feels like a retread ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 3.5/5

Charu Thakur | India Today: 3.5/5
Chaubey brings his expertise from Udta Punjab in beautifully using Sonchiriya (the golden bird) as a metaphor for salvation. A sonchiriya that everyone is looking for, but is unable to find ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Deccan Chronicle: 3.5/5
The film is blessed by actors who can hold a scene without doing much ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 3/5
A Stunningly Shot, Masterfully Staged Fusion Of Caste, Violence And Jungle Law. The film has real power, but its brutality is unsparing and beyond a point, it starts to wear you down ... Full Review

Parag Chaphekar | Jagran: 3/5
फिल्म रिएलिस्टिक तरीके से बनाई गई है जिसमें एक अलग जीवन दर्शन है। ये बागी चंबल का बलवान दर्शन है। फिल्म अच्छी है। इसे एक बार जरूर देखा जा सकता है। ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 2.5/5

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 3/5
Solid performances guide the way through the Chambal ravines ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 3.5/5
Every actor in the multi-starrer gives his or her all to the character. A special word for Bhumi Pednekar who is emerging as Bollywood’s every woman. She can play and be one with a character from any part of the country ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 3.5/5
There’s a question that recurs through Sonchiriya: what is a dacoit’s dharma? At one point an answer is given: to protect one’s people and caste, to live and pass away in the ravines, to die from a bullet. A fatalistic response, and a bracingly nihilistic film ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 4/5
Devious and unforgiving, Abhishek Chaubey’s filmmaking lugs Sonchiriya into uncharted mainstream territory. Its reflective pace might puzzle a few, especially audiences unaccustomed to revisionist cinema, but I’m hoping for the humour to sell ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post: 4/5
Abhishek Chaubey's film is a biting critique of caste, masculinity, and patriarchy. It shouldn't be missed, the film features top notch performances from the entire ensemble ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 2.5/5
Chaubey should focus on maximizing his movies’ appeal and minimizing the niche element! And the best way up is to stop being unduly impressed by foreign greats and study, instead, the work of our filmmaking legends ... Full Review

Priyanka Bhadani | The Week: 3.5/5
In Sonchiriya, the dacoits rob, kill and spread menace. But they also fear and pray, and at rare times make merry. Even if the core subject is grim, the writing by Chaubey and Sudip Sharma, brings beauty with sensitivity in each of these moments ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 2.5/5
The story, the performances keep you engaged, yet the film drags making it predictable because there’s just too much time to think ... Full Review

Amandeep Narang | The Statesman: 3/5
Sushant Singh Rajput, Ranvir Shorey shine in story of revenge, justice and salvation. The film feels like a Mad Max Fury Road; only it’s without the cars and trucks, and the genre is not dystopian. The sandy dunes will remind you of the film ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 2/5
We are reminded again and again of Lakhna’s past and how he hasn’t been able to get over it. Plot twists, especially one at the end, seem too contrived. This film also has too many characters, but not enough time to devote to them ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 3/5
Sonchiriya is a thrilling action-adventure that resonates even with today's social issues. Try not to miss ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 3/5
The animated camera and the eclectic directorial style – tense shootouts, contemplative slow-motion shots, song-laced frames (sometimes all in one sequence) – provide wonderful tonal variation, keeping us hooked while capturing the hinterland in all its messy, conflicting realities ... Full Review

Amar Ujala: 4/5
अभिषेक चौबे इस फिल्म के साथ अपने उस्ताद विशाल भारद्वाज से दो कदम आगे के निर्देशक बन चुके हैं। विशाल को भी इस बात का गर्व जरूर होगा। अमर उजाला डॉट कॉम के वीकली रिव्यू में फिल्म सोन चिड़िया को मिलते हैं चार स्टार। ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 4/5
Sonchiriya is a brilliantly crafted movie. It is political, it is authentic and it is nuanced. We as viewers usually manage to predict the death of characters when they start to talk about their dreams ... Full Review
