Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 9/10
Rohena Gera’s Sir Delicately Deconstructs The Language Of Love. Tillotama Shome’s performance as Ratna – an extension of her debut as the Delhi housemaid Alice in Monsoon Wedding – goes deeper than context and mannerisms. An actor usually furthers the storytelling; here, she is the storytelling ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan | Film Companion: - | 8/10
This film is a deceptively simple, emotionally resonant drama that (rightly) puts its characters before its themes ... Full Review

Asmit Pal | Film Companion: - | 10/10
Is Love Enough? Sir is one of those films that one cannot fully appreciate in a single viewing. The first viewing might blow you away but the second viewing is certain to move you to your core ... Full Review

Sir is an unusual, courageous traverse into unfamiliar, difficult territory, stepping in very carefully into the minefield which people like us have taken for granted for years ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4/5 | 8/10

Life Style Asia: - | 8/10
The film addresses the importance of companionship, irrespective of class, but it is the class that determines if it is appropriate. Despite the love story, the depiction of class divide remains in your mind long after the film is over ... Full Review

Sir is a delicate and powerful look at human connection ... Full Review

Ken Eisner | Georgia Straight: - | 8/10

Radheyan Simonpillai | NOW Toronto: 4/5 | 8/10

The film, from Indian screenwriter and documentary director Rohena Gera, is well-paced and properly sentimental ... Full Review

FirstPost: 4.5/5 | 9/10
A masterful romantic drama about a domestic worker and her employer. The commentary in Sir is rooted as much in the condescension of its affluent characters as it is in the electric tension between Ratna and Ashwin ... Full Review

A modest yet effective tale of love and class ... Full Review

Peter Bradshaw | The Guardian: 3/5 | 6/10

She The People: - | 8/10
The film is thought-provoking and touches upon very sensitive issues but remains understated and non-preachy. The terrace plays an important role in calling for personal freedom. The film ends on many “what ifs”. Watch it, I think Rohena Gera gets it spot on ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 7.5/10
Tillotama Shome’s excellent performance goes a long way in explaining Ratna’s decision to throw tilt her pragmatic head up at the stars. As Ashwin, Vivek Gomber is sincerity personified ... Full Review

Mayank Shekhar | Mid-Day: 4/5 | 8/10
Of course Tillotama Shome brilliantly plays the domestic help here, which is the debut role most film buffs will still remember her from Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding (2001)! You can still not find a single common note between the two performances. There is god-like authenticity here; not that it wasn't there ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 4/5 | 8/10

Rediff: 2/5 | 4/10
Sir is a love story that could have filled the gap left behind due to the lack of mushy, aspirational, romantic movies at the cinemas, but a sluggish pace and rushed end become a buzzkill ... Full Review

Jorge Ignacio Castillo | Prairie Dog Magazine: 2/5 | 4/10
For a moment, it seems Sir may break through. But the film falls into well-worn grooves and soap opera-level drama, wasting solid character work ... Full Review

Republic World: 4.5/5 | 9/10
