Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 5/10

Deccan Chronicle: 3/5 | 6/10
Sheeba Chaddha as Usha, and Natasha Rastogi who plays Sandhya’s mother are both excellent. These three characters, along with Aasif Khan and Daadi, turn Pagglait into a welcoming home one can go to, just to get lost from the world for a bit ... Full Review

Lehren: 4/5 | 8/10
In Umesh Bist’s well-written, well-layered and well-filmed Pagglait (Crazy) too, human equations are prime as a family comes together for 13 days of mourning. But he weaves it all around the freshly widowed Sandhya and her gradual awakening, almost like a rebirth on the 13th day ... Full Review

Planet Bollywood: 2.5/5 | 6/10
