Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 5/10
Thinly written but meticulously shot, producer Anushka Sharma's follow-up to the brilliant Paatal Lok is a bit of a letdown ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3/5 | 6/10
Bulbbul reflects upon this thought as it condemns the culture of silence that women are subjected to. It reminds you what you are truly capable of, once you decide to avenge injustice and seek redemption ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | Book My Show: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Above everything else it delivers an important, relevant message with genuine feeling, and it leaves you with enough food for thought ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Produced by Anushka Sharma, Bulbbul’s most interesting moments feature Paoli Dam and Tripti Dimri, who play sisters-in-law. These scenes are written really well and you’ll immediately get the sub context ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 7/10
For a narrative inspired by director Anvita Dutt's affection for words, perhaps it's both ironic and fitting that Bulbbul wears the distinct visual aura of a dreamer ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Bulbbul is fashioned as a sharply relevant fable. It is a powerfully feminist, revisionist tale of a woman wronged, and it is told with economy, precision, style and feeling ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 4.5/5 | 9/10
A slender mix of supernatural horror and social commentary, Bulbbul — produced by Anushka Sharma and out on Netflix — is a bewitching tale of trauma and heartbreak ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
Bulbbul isn't the sort of spine-chilling film that will spook you out of your mind but it is engaging enough not to ever let you off the hook ... Full Review

Roger Moore | Movie Nation: 2/4 | 5/10
The best any critical Western viewer might offer in praise is "Nice try." ... Full Review

Musanna Ahmed | Film Inquiry: - | 6/10
Whilst Bulbbul doesn't fulfil the potential we've seen out of the country's genre film scene, it's still a lush and disturbing hybrid of folk-horror and fairytale ... Full Review

Radhika Menon | Decider: - | 8/10
Suspenseful, visually arresting, and chock-full of charismatic performances, Bulbbul is an incredibly impressive debut from director Anvita Dutt and a must-see for your next movie night ... Full Review

Akhil Arora | NDTV Gadgets360: - | 5/10
Though Dutt erases the misogynistic and patriarchal overtones of [the] chudail [folklore for] a feminist spin, ... she doesn't add to it in any meaningful manner ... Full Review

Shubham Kulkarni | Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Watch to see how a woman has to turn a witch for the society to take her seriously! Though I have my share of problems, I would want you to watch Bulbbul ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 3/5 | 6/10
Among other joys that it offers then is the fact that Bulbbul is one of those rare contemporary Hindi films to travel beyond the Hindi belt and Punjab to a culture and place that Bollywood does not often visit these days ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: - | 7.5/10
Dimri is a stunner who speaks volumes with her eyes. And the audience can do little but stay enraptured ... Full Review

Moumita Bhattacharjee | Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
Stunning looking, Bulbbul keeps the scares to a minimum ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Anvita Dutt, who made a directorial debut with Bulbbul does a commendable job of keeping the narrative tight and getting her point across in a short duration ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 5/10
Supernatural period drama 'Bulbbul' is fetching but unadventurous ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 7/10
There appears to be a layer or two missing in the screenplay, but whatever is on the screen for 94 minutes is smart, sensitive and haunting ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Deccan Chronicle: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Bulbbul’s story and story-telling are both shrouded in mist and mystery. It finds power in stuff left unsaid ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 4/5 | 8/10
There are even shades of Amar Kaushik’s ‘Stree’. The film them gains a life of its own. Intelligent dialogues and screenplay are just two of the fine traits of ‘Bulbbul’ ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 2/5 | 4/10
Keeps you guessing, on occasion? Perhaps. But not even so much of that, really. There is low rhythm and drama. But more so, a declining sense of anticipation ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Overall, it's a fantastic debut for Anvita Dutt. Bulbbul feels like it's been directed by an experienced hand and not a newbie ... Full Review

IANS | Zee News: 3/5 | 6/10
The triumph of this film lies in the idea it serves ... Full Review

Priyanka D Bhatt | Republic World: 3.5/5 | 7/10
An impactful film that tells the tale of womanhood and connects its plights with folklore. Anushka Sharma's Bulbbul is a must-watch ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post: - | 7/10
A Powerful Tale About The All-Pervasiveness Of Male Violence. Through a cocktail of folklore, mythology and the supernatural, Anvita Dutt upends the fairy-tale template by infusing it with social horror ... Full Review

Samira Sood | The Print: - | 6/10
Bulbbul is an engaging story that asks an important question: What is the real horror — a witch who swings from trees and has misshapen feet or the unimaginable torture that so many women and girls go through at the hands of men? ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 3/5 | 6/10
1 of the questions the film throws up&doesn't answer is if the binary between being a devi or chudail is the only recourse feminine power has to navigate in this patriarchal set up. No easy answers in sight but nevertheless a visually appealing film ... Full Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Gulf News: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Produced by Anushka Sharma, this supernatural thriller has the right spirit and soul ... Full Review

Ambica Sachin | Khaleej Times: 3/5 | 6/10
An exquisite feminist drama ... Full Review

Sanjana Jadhav | PinkVilla: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Anushka Sharma's feminist tale finds its strength in fine performances, remarkable music ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: - | 6/10
That Bulbbul still manages to make for a hypnotic experience is a quiet triumph, a testament to Dutt's distinct storytelling and efficient casting ... Full Review

Techquila: 4.2/5 | 8.4/10
But anyway, it doesn’t really take away much from my positive experience with the movie. It’s a really good watch for people who are bored with traditional horror ... Full Review
