Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 5.5/10
Cargo, with its sci-fi take on spirituality, is like Masaan meets Moon. I wish I liked it more ... Full Review

Pallabi Dey Purkayastha | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The film may not appease the taste buds of sci-fi fanatics and masala movie lovers alike, but on so many levels, it’s a big step towards experimental cinema ... Full Review

News18: 4/5 | 8/10
The space scenes are well shot, especially considering the film’s budget, but Cargo's biggest strength comes from the interactions among its fully realised characters whose dialogues and camaraderie are sure to deliver an entertaining ride ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 8/10
Writer-director's Arati Kadav's wide-eyed world-building - audacious, imaginative, idiosyncratic, subversive - is crucial to the viewer experience ... Full Review

Sucharita Tyagi | Film Companion: - | 6/10
The fact that this film actually happened, AND turned out the way it did? Miraculous...a small but stupendous flight of fancy ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
An original, inventive Indian sci-fi movie. Vikrant Massey wears Prahastha's longing and loneliness like his comfortable suit. Shweta Tripathi is at ease displaying Yuvishka's gullibility as well as assertiveness ... Full Review

Hagan Osborne | Film Ink: 16/20 | 8/10
a stylish, thought-provoking and well-acted alternative to the influx of 'straggler-in-space' films dominant in Western filmmaking ... Full Review

Shikhar Verma | High on Films: 2.5/5 | 6/10
A sci-fi film in terms of its premise, but a truly existential, inventive, and to a stretch original oddity about life, death, and everything in between, Kadav's debut feature film is what you truly call 'out of the box.' ... Full Review

Akhil Arora | Gadgets360: - | 5/10
The trouble is that Cargo is unable to scratch beyond the surface. ... Full Review

Soham Gadre | Film Inquiry: - | 5/10
Cargo is, in the end, a muddled concoction of many interesting ideas that don't flow together. ... Full Review

Rob Dean | Daily Grindhouse: 2.5/5 | 5/10
CARGO, from writer/director Arati Kadav, is an impressively made film that looks great and has a ton of ideas and emotions it wishes to capture and explore-but unfortunately there is a lack of coherence to these threads ... Full Review

Peter Debruge | Variety: - | 6/10
Kadav and production designer Mayur Sharma have conjured an endearingly analog sci-fi environment that's fun to visit, and not only distinct from Western films but totally unlike anything else being done in India at the moment ... Full Review

Eric Kohn | Indiewire: B- | 6/10
While “Cargo” stumbles on plot, it excels at vision, and bodes well for the potential of a filmmaker capable of innovating within familiar restraint ... Full Review

Techquila: 3.2/5 | 6.4/10
Cargo is one of those movies where you won’t only see a decent and praiseworthy attempt at the genre, but also in times of crisis the movie can serve as a ray of hope that nothing is lost forever but at the same time, nothing is permanent ... Full Review

Koimoi: 3/5 | 6/10
While Arati Kadav’s imagination and creativity will impress you, the slow pace will fail to grab your attention throughout. Yet, give it a watch because you won’t easily see this kind of cinema soon in Hindi cinema ... Full Review

India Today: 3/5 | 6/10
Cargo is not your typical Bollywood film, but an intelligent one that needs to be decoded with patience ... Full Review

Rediff: 2/5 | 4/10
I would like to applaud Director Aarti Kadav for attempting a futuristic movie, but Cargo gets mired by a script which has been jammed with too many concepts ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The low point of the film is its story. The film gets slow and monotonous in certain places, but never boring. It has interesting twists ... Full Review

Pakaoo: 4/5 | 8/10
The central characters played by Vikrant Massey and Shweta Tripathi don’t disappoint us, they have added the flavors of their natural acting skills in each and every scene of the movie ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3/5 | 6/10
The film's pace could have been faster. And the plot could've been imagined better. The histrionics of the lead couple holds it together. It would have fallen apart in the hands of lesser actors ... Full Review

Sify: 3/5 | 6/10
Cargo is worth a watch for the sheer originality and understated humour ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A sedate but uplifting sojourn in novel territory. There is a fable-like approach to Cargo, which gives us the necessary familiarity to throw our weight behind a genre not often explored in Indian cinema ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 8/10
A new dimension to mythology and existentialism in this wonderful sci-fi film ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 5.5/10
A Brave Debut With a Sci-Fi Film That Explores Lives and After Lives. The story leaves several threads hanging but has a few original ideas ... Full Review

The Quint: 4/5 | 8/10
‘Cargo’ is a Milestone for Hindi Cinema. This film is uniquely Indian - it marries the two things we love most - the sciences and mythology ... Full Review

Spotboye: 2/5 | 4/10
Vikrant Massey And Shweta Tripathi Spin Around An Intelligent Concept With A Faulty Screenplay ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: - | 7/10
This is Arati Kadav’s first feature film and I must say her imagination is crazy and captivating. These are really flimsy themes that can give a hard time for the viewer to find connect and I feel that’s where the movie sort of scored ... Full Review

She The People: - | 6/10
Both Vikrant Massey and Shweta Tripathi are in excellent form. The secondary characters too deliver in what they are given. The low point of the film is its story which gets monotonous after a point ... Full Review

Just for Movie Freaks: 3.25/5 | 6.5/10
An Impressive Space Opera with Tons of Potential! ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: - | 5.5/10
A surprise package that feels incomplete. Cargo’s festival circuit run may have been unceremoniously cut short — but it will find its experimental place in the sun, if only for the performance of the lead pair ... Full Review

Arre: - | 6/10
The arrival of a truly unique filmmaking voice ... Full Review

Now Running: 3/5 | 6/10
Buried underneath the occasional laughs and playfulness of Arati Kadav's 'Cargo' is a sense of melancholy. The movie works as a musing on life after death and lonely astronauts. A homegrown blend of science-fiction and Indian mythology, Kadav's film subverts sci-fi formulas ... Full Review
