Disgusting propaganda in which truth is a luxury ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 2.5/5
All its sensational content is relevant and important social issues are highlighted, too. But, the storytelling effort is half-baked and lacks the finesse that such a heavy-duty film requires ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 0/5
The entire film is a series of eye-roll moments, pockmarked by dialogue that’s unintentionally hilarious. We don’t really have to wait for the big reveal to see the purpose of the film ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 2/5
A tacky thriller that feels longer than the Cold War. This political whodunnit crams quotes, citations, claims, and counterclaims in one exhausting headspin of movie ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 0.5/5
No two ways about it: The Tashkent Files is Google search filmmaking at its worst. Banking upon crowd-sourced research, it peddles untruths and half-truths culled from unverified quarters and seeks to pass itself off as a great, gutsy piece of investigative cinema ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 1.5/5
THE TASHKENT FILES is laced with an excellent idea and provides some shocking facts related to the sudden demise of Lal Bahadur Shastri. But the film has zero buzz and is riddled with too many loose ends ... Full Review

Kennith Rosario | The Hindu: 1/5
The Tashkent Files’ agenda comes clear only in its climax, although it's a no-brainer, as the film keeps referring to the Emergency in as many ways as possible ... Full Review

Ramesh S | Rediff: 3/5
The Tashkent Files is a hard-hitting film. The writers have smartly targeted several politicians without mentioning them ... Full Review

Kusumita Das | FirstPost: 2/5
High on hysteria and hamming, Vivek Agnihotri's film comes off as a cheap trick ... Full Review

Samrudhi Ghosh | India Today: 1/5
Vivek Agnihotri murders logic in Lal Bahadur Shastri death mystery, The Tashkent Files is bogged down by the chaotic screenplay and blaring background music ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 1/5
The rigour that was needed to prove Agnihotri’s thesis is missing, and the biliousness of his selective targeting robs The Tashkent Files of its attempt to being an effective conspiracy thriller ... Full Review

Subash K Jha | Deccan Chronicle: 1.5/5
Actors known to be unfailingly effective find themselves being placed on slippery ground as they struggle with their lines of pick-axe bravado ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 1.5/5
Juhu-Versova Ka JFK! No, nobody's reopening any files for this, or getting rattled up to relook at laws (as was the case with the Oliver Stone masterpiece). A whole lot might just get bored, though ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 2.5/5
We wish someone makes a biopic on that, instead of speculating on his death. It should be stated that the film looks biased against a certain political party ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 1/5
A Second-Hand History Lesson In Third-Rate Politics. As of this moment, the difference between Vivek Agnihotri tweeting and Vivek Agnihotri making a film is negligible ... Full Review

Ravindra Tripathi | Jansatta: 2.5/5
फिल्म थोड़ा दिखाइए, ज्यादा समझिए वाले तरीके की है। अगर यह फिल्म डॉक्यूमेंट्री की तरह बनती तो शायद ज्यादा विश्वसनीय होती। ... Full Review

Parag Chaphekar | Jagran: 2.5/5
कुल मिलाकर अगर आपको राजनीतिक फिल्मों में दिलचस्पी है और अगर भारत के दूसरे प्रधानमंत्री शास्त्री जी की मौत से जुड़ी तमाम सारी थ्योरीज़ से आप वाकिफ होना चाहते हैं तो आप यह फिल्म देखने जा सकते हैं। ... Full Review

Amar Ujala: 3/5
फिल्म की कहानी को पुख्ता करने के लिए कई तरह के रशियन स्पाई एजेंसी यानी केजीबी के पुराने दस्तावेजों का प्रयोग किया गया है। फिल्म का बैकग्राउंड म्यूजिक सही है, वह कहानी में असली रोमांच लेकर आता है। ... Full Review

Madhuri | Filmi Beat: 2.5/5
At the end of the film when it's displayed that the authenticity of the facts displayed cannot be verified, it leaves you questioning the blurred line between facts and fiction in the film ... Full Review

IANS | ABP Live: 3/5
A potent film with a dubious motive ... Full Review

Suguna Sundaram | Cine Blitz: 3/5
While it is not overtly propagandist, or even inflammatory, it is revelatory that even with so much information in the public domain, the case did not arouse the correct actions five decades ago ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 1/5
Prejudiced, Amateurish and Cringe-Worthy ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 4/5
Hard-Hitting Expose of an Ugly Political Cover-up. This is a film that deserves far larger exposure ... Full Review

Bhavna Agarwal | PinkVilla: 1.5/5
Vivek Agnihotri's The Tashkent Files tries too hard to unearth Lal Bahadur Shastri's mysterious death using conjectures as crutches ... Full Review

Ajit Duara | Open Magazine: 1/5

Shivaji Handa | Maps of India: 1/5
Do not watch this movie. It would be better if you could read some books regarding the same. The movie is utterly confusing. The topics are sensitive and thus, should have been handled with more responsibility ... Full Review
