Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: 3.5/5
Sujoy Ghosh’s new Netflix horror show is a worthy follow-up to Stranger Things, and a perfect palate cleanser before Sacred Games 2 ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
An overcrowded house of horror. We might have progressed from the ‘woman-in-a-white-saree-holding-a-candle’ trope, but we are nowhere close to having a Stranger Things or even a Sixth Sense of our own, and Typewriter just reiterates this point ... Full Review

Ektaa Malik | The New Indian Express: 2.5/5
Typewriter remains a solid idea, even if inspired or derivative, that could have been so much better. There is even a religion angle that’s left unexplored. Ironically, most good things about Typewriter are only on paper ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | News18: 3/5
There is an ingrained warmth in the storytelling. And though the child actors do not have a well-appointed space in the voluminous plot, they succeed in imbuing a great deal of honesty to the telling of a spooky story that has the potential to be a pedestrian shiver giver, but manages to become something more ... Full Review

Akhil Arora | NDTV Gadgets: 1.5/5
Ultimately, it all combines to make up thoroughly substandard horror fare, which attempts to laugh at The Conjuring without realising its own failure to scare the viewer, let alone do something more ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5
The series, when it isn't trying to be an outright blood-and-gore show, throws up some genuinely chilling moments ... Full Review

Srivathsan Nadadhur | Binged: 3.25/5
Immensely original writing, Terrific aesthetics, Performances by child actors Jishu Sengupta ... Full Review

Gautam Batra | Koimoi: 2.5/5
Interesting Horror Tale With A Half Baked Finale. All in all, watch Typewriter for its performances and to know how teenagers are the stars of future content ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
Sufficiently creepy to start with, the Netflix series gets unwieldy in the later episodes ... Full Review

The Digital Hash: 3/5
Typewriter is a well made, true to retro roots series that weaves a good story. The performances are at par with the best, and this could be a good franchise for Netflix and the audiences ... Full Review

Shreya Paul | FirstPost: 4/5
Sujoy, true to his word, enters the story in the capacity of both a maker and viewer, uplifting the relatability quotient of the narrative ... Full Review

Suhani Singh | India Today: 2.5/5
If they can turn up with more stranger, scarier and plausible things, then there's a show that can appease both kids and adults ... Full Review

Ankit Verma | Punch Beat: 3/5
Typewriter stays very loyal and true to the horror plot and still strikes a strong emotional chord without going overboard. It could have been a gem but the ending was not very promising ... Full Review

Soumya Rao | Scroll: 2.5/5
Some thrills, but not enough chills. The short running length and the element of intrigue makes Typewriter an easy binge, but the series would have worked much better if it had more haunting and less hunting into the past ... Full Review

Vargis Khan: 3/5
Predictability is more or less the worst part about the show. It starts off really well but a couple of episodes later, you will realize that we have seen it all in Hollywood flicks and shows ... Full Review

Gautaman Bhaskaran | Arab News: 2.5/5
Average performances, with the exception of Palomi Ghosh, who does a splendid job as a woman dangling between a scary past and a happy present, do not help a thriller that could have been much better ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 2/5
A Loopy Adult Ghost Story Slowed Down By Its Kiddie Template ... Full Review

Tanvi Juwale | Book My Show: 2/5
There’s not much going for Typewriter aside from a few scary moments and a handful of quality performances ... Full Review

India Forums: 3.5/5
The series seems like a good weekend binge. It is not the kind of horror that has too many jump scares but it’s story will definitely intrigue you ... Full Review

Melissa Camacho | Common Sense Media: 4/5
This TV adaptation of a web series spins a ghostly tale that's more charming than terrifying ... Full Review

Soumik Datta | Wise Movie Reviews: 3/5
You will not get bored while watching it because it's engaging; however, the edge-of-the-seat thriller component is missing for sure ... Full Review

Anshuman | The Crapless: 3/5
Netflix’s Horror Indian Series Will Give You Goosebumps ... Full Review

Jonathon Wilson | Ready Steady Cut: 2.5/5
Some good ideas and effective chills aside, Netflix’s new Indian horror series is spread a little thin, losing some steam as it goes along ... Full Review

Surya Komal | Just For Movie Freaks: 3/5
An Engaging Story with Likeable Characters! ... Full Review

The Review Geek: 3.25/5
It’s still an enjoyable series, no doubt, but it’s also one that doesn’t quite reach the level one may expect from a horror like this ... Full Review

Karina Adelgaard | Heaven of Horror: 3/5
Just expect a lot more Goosebumps than The Haunting of Hill House. It does however get pretty bloody and violent from episode 2 of Typewriter, so don’t get too comfortable! ... Full Review

Hiba Beg | The Quint: 2.5/5
‘Typewriter’ Is a Good Show Stifled by Predictability ... Full Review

Spotboye: 3/5
If writers paid more attention to the story then this would have been a much better show but none the less, it happens to be an entertaining one ... Full Review

Geetika Mantri | The News Minute: 3/5
Few scares but Sujoy Ghosh’s horror series still charms. The four children, who are the prime protagonists, unravel the mystery and prove to be the biggest strength of the series ... Full Review

Rashmi Paharia | IWM Buzz: 3.5/5
A tale of horror steeped in the wonders of childhood. However, it is Abhishek Banerjee that deserves special applause. Banerjee is terrifying, to say the least ... Full Review

Joel Keller | Decider: 3.5/5
Typewriter made us legitimately jump a couple of times, always a good sign for a horror series. But the characters are also well drawn and the fact that it doesn’t take itself seriously makes it even better ... Full Review
