Soumya Srivastava | Hindustan Times: - | 4/10
Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is a confusing thing to behold. Despite picking relevant themes about gender issues, everyday misogyny, intolerance and moral policing, it fails to do justice to any of them. These flicker, but for a moment ... Full Review

Sreeparna Sengupta | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A layered, complex film with stellar performances ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 3/5 | 6/10
This Working Class Heroines' Story Hits At Right Spots. Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare's intention of being a working class heroines’ story is quite apparent and has nice dimensions too, but there are way too many sub-plots going on for a 124-minute film ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 4/10
Doesn’t Deliver. There are simply too many points being made. And as the political overwhelms the personal, the film loses its hold ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Alankrita’s film opens spaces and dialogue around the thorny subject of female desire. Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is the kind of film which opens up spaces and dialogue around difficult topics, and raises the feminist bar while doing so: give it many ‘chamakte sitare’ already ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 3/5 | 6/10
The ideas are potent but awkwardly rushed. Several times, you wish the film unfurled at its own pace, instead of making it all ‘fit’ ... Full Review

Dyuti Gupta | She The People: - | 6/10
Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare aims for the moon and lands amongst the stars, and for all such reasons and more, it deserves a sincere watch ... Full Review

Bhawna Jaimini | She The People: - | 6/10
Even with all its shortcomings, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is an important film for our intolerant times where the space for women and queer people to express themselves is shrinking day by day ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The Netflix film chooses too many cards to put on the table. We would have loved to see Dolly and Kitty's stars shine bright and steady - they merely flicker ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5 | 4/10
DOLLY KITTY AUR WOH CHAMAKTE SITARE has an important underlying message but the attempt to forcefully scandalize and politicize the narrative takes away the impact. This very reason, however, might also make the film a talking point ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2/5 | 4/10
It suffers from 'how amazing this could've been?' syndrome. Even if you’re someone who can ignore the weak points to enjoy the performances, watch the films which will have better performances by the similar cast and crew. Not ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2/5 | 4/10
Konkona and Bhumi’s natural sensitivity is overshadowed by a vague script . If thematic courage, a feminist soul and liberal ideals alone were the determining factors, then Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare would have deserved a thumbs up ... Full Review

Jyoti Kanyal | India Today: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The only thing that doesn't work in favour of Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is its slow pace. The film could have been crispier. But we are not complaining ... Full Review

Mini Anthikad Chhibber | The Hindu: - | 6/10
An interesting slice-of-life dramedy. Alankrita Shrivastava’s directorial on Netflix makes you root for both the cousins who take different routes to emancipation ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
The women, warts and all, are fascinating and frustrating for their flaws. As much director Alankrita Shrivastava wants them to chart their course on their own terms, she pauses much too frequently to throw in a little pity party ... Full Review

Aishwarya Vasudevan | DNAIndia: 3/5 | 6/10
Overall, despite having a slow pace and many sequences seeming to be deja vu, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare still deserve a weekend watch by movie lovers ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 6/10
With two storylines to deal with, instead of the four of Lipstick, Shrivastava’s writing is more relaxed. It ties up a little too neatly, but there are memorable turns of phrase ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 7/10
The movie opts to reveal incremental victories rather than make a grand statement about its feminist themes. Dolly is better placed in this regard – rather than shattering the walls of her gilded cage, she decorously dismantles them one at a time ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 2/5 | 4/10
It's not this film's sub-text that anybody could have an issue with. It's solid. It's the story/plot that follows from it — with half-baked men/children, and women going through all sorts of heart-breaks and heartless turns — that start seeming belaboured/contrived beyond a point ... Full Review

Kanakanjali Roy | ABP Live: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Bhumi Pednekar and Konkona Sen Sharma were so natural on-screen that it became difficult to differentiate between reel life and real life ... Full Review

Book My Show: 70% | 7/10
Do not just watch this film, discuss it with your peers and on social media. Like Dolly and Kitty, do not hesitate to seek happiness and self-fulfilment ... Full Review

Sonia Chopra | Sify: 3/5 | 6/10
A well-intentioned drama. Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare is superbly performed but misses the spark! ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 7/10
While the ending seems hasty, Shrivastava has carved out two nuanced female characters who are seeking fulfilment and happiness in their lives, like anyone else. It is their yearnings that remain with you ... Full Review

Medium: - | 5/10
Once Again, The Politics in Alankrita Shrivastava’s Film is Peculiarly Disjointed from Craft ... Full Review

Techquila: 3.2/5 | 6.4/10
While the film might not set into people’s expectations at times, overall, the film works on a well-set narrative and roots itself in reality as much as possible and it is here that it becomes easy for the viewers to relate with the character to certain lengths ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 2.75/5 | 6/10
The film is quite bold, has a good premise, solid first half, and taut performances. But it is the second half that faulters and kills the interest of the audience ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: - | 5/10
Alankrita Srivastava’s second film is full of telling details but has some false and contrived touches ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 3/5 | 6/10
For Dolly and Kitty, the real win isn’t a grand celebration but a quiet and resolute acceptance of their truth. For one of them it translates to standing her ground, for the other it means to take a leap of faith and move away ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WION: - | 6/10
The women are confident actors, deliver assured performances and manage to shine in a film with that cramps up too much in too little time ... Full Review

Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Gulf News: 3/5 | 6/10
The movie’s climax may also seem a bit hurried and choppy, but the journey until there is eventful and deeply satisfying. Make sure to make this your weekend watch ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 1/5 | 2/10
Worthless Piece of Pretentious Storytelling ... Full Review

Anupama Chandra | Free Press Journal: 3/5 | 6/10
Watchable, but slanted. Two stellar performances hold together several tales but are failed by unbalanced treatment of male characters ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: - | 6/10
Female desire and oppression are the fulcrums around which the plot churns here as well, but it’s a more reflective outing enriched by its two leads – Konkana Sen Sharma and Bhumi Pednekar ... Full Review
