Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 7.5/10
A Bewitching Poem Of An India Between The Lines. At some level, human life is no different from a long-distance truck journey. Our spines creak under the pressure of society, as we transfer the burden of being from one phase to another ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan | Film Companion: - | 6/10
Meel Patthar is more of a sigh, set at the other end of life. If the texture of the earlier film was hard-bitten journalistic prose, there’s more than a dash of poetry here. ... Full Review

This sublimely multi-layered film embraces the personal struggles of its characters with as much passion as it portrays the manifestations of the social inequities that are an intrinsic part of their existence ... Full Review

The Upcoming: 4/5 | 8/10
The sheer relentlessness of its turmoil means the film suffers on an emotional level, its bleak tone as unchanging as the roads. But as an exposé of the harsh underbelly of modern labour, Milestone is unshakeable ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 4/5 | 8/10
Meel Patthar is teeming with reflections on the new order that will eventually replace the old, the people we ignore until their suffering disturbs our comfortable status quo, despair, fear and the possibilities that open up when we simply let go ... Full Review

High on Films: - | 7/10
Harsh and humane, Ivan Ayr's film richly mines inner desolation ... Full Review

Live Mint: - | 5/10
It's commendable that Milestone doesn’t take its slow burn in the direction of violence—something all too common in Indian cinema. Still, the film’s heaviness holds it back ... Full Review

Scroll: - | 6/10
A solemn film, Milestone is imbued with desolation. There is immense gravitas when Ghalib says, “I do this job because this is who I am. My misery lies in the fact that this is all I am.” ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 4/5 | 8/10
A deeply moving rumination on life. Ivan Ayr's indie film reminds one of how poetic cinema can be when it is as reflective, as ruminant ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 7/10
Suvinder Vicky is quietly effective as a lonely truck driver dealing with several crises at once. However, the drama, though constrained, is a worthy follow-up in Ayr’s filmography ... Full Review

Entertaining Movie: - | 6/10

A deeply moving and profound tale of loneliness ... Full Review

Just for Movie Freaks: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Milestone (Meel Patthar) is slow, unconventional, and might not have that rewatchability factor, but it is brilliant in its own way ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
However, the measured pace of Milestone does not paint a 'happy road trip' but delves into one man's lonely journey. And that is why, the film may not be everyone's cup of tea ... Full Review

National Herald India: - | 8/10
Though very different in their narrative trajectories, there is a lot that is similar in 'Milestone' and 'Nomadland'. They are like profound companion pieces on lives on the move ... Full Review

Leisure Byte: 4/5 | 8/10
Milestone, throughout its 98 minutes, keeps you engaged through its realism and brilliant performance by both Lakshvir Saran and Suvinder Vicky. The film is worth your time and a great addition to realism portraying films on Netflix ... Full Review

The Review Geek: - | 6/10
Ghalib’s character is certainly enough to gravitate toward, but all the other supporting players fall by the wayside. Despite that, if you’re in the mood for a slow-paced road trip movie, Milestone does a decent job showing the highs and lows of being a truck driver in India ... Full Review

Latestly: 3.5/5 | 7/10
If you have admired Soni, then you would not be disappointed with Ivan Ayr has to offer in Meel Patthar. It may not be the reality break that you need, but it is definitely the reality check that you might have chosen to ignore. Or maybe, even living in ... Full Review
