Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: - | 6/10
Amazing Vidya Balan anchors Amit Masurkar's ambitious Newton follow-up. Although the satirical elements in Sherni aren’t as pronounced as they were in Newton, Masurkar’s eye for absurdity is as sharp as ever ... Full Review

Sreeparna Sengupta | Times of India: 4/5 | 8/10
‘Sherni’ makes for an intense, intriguing film and is a must-watch. If you’re expecting the roar and rumblings of a regular Bollywood film, this one is far from it. But therein lies the beauty of it ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 4/5 | 8/10
Masurkar has shown impeccable maturity in handling a lesser known subject. Sherni deserves your attention because it’s about synergy—your synergy with the surroundings ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 7.5/10
Vidya Balan lets go of her natural exuberance and works with restrained expressions. She is controlled and terrific. But despite stretches that feel repetitive and even dull, Amit steers the story to a coda that is chilling in its quietness ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 8/10
A Primal, Potent and Pleasing Takedown of Indian Bureaucracy. Sherni is a calming cocktail of everything Balan is and can be as a quietly determined lady coming to terms with the misgivings of patriarchal middle-India ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 3/10
Sherni is dry and drab and is meant for a very thin section of the class audience ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 3/5 | 6/10
A strange beast. As Vidya Balan fronts a film about the primacy of nature and human greed, headlined by the majestic tiger, you want to hand out props to Amit Masurkar ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: - | 4/10
Yet, where Newton’s imagery stung, and was rooted in its economy, Sherni fails to leave the same impact. I sensed a troubling blankness in certain parts: images piled on for documentary precision and nothing else ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Sherni isn't just a tigress-on-the-loose adventure. It is a film of our times for the ages, a worthy follow-up to Newton ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5 | 4/10
SHERNI rests on an interesting storyline and Vidya Balan’s performance. But the slow and documentary-style narrative, longer runtime and bewildering climax ruins the impact ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
This Vidya Balan led action-adventure has a lot of things to like, but we’ve seen them perfected in an already superior product created by the same director. It’s neither a disappointment nor lives up to the hope one could possess after knowing the film’s cast & crew ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 4/5 | 8/10
Sherni delivers unrelenting yet noiseless excitement in addition to food for thought all the way up to its concluding minutes ... Full Review

The Hindu: - | 6.5/10
Sherni doesn’t have the predictable high-on-adrenaline approach one might expect from such a premise, but it leaves you thinking long after. That’s a win ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 4/5 | 8/10
Sherni is a triumph -- a sublime outcome of purpose and storytelling falling in place ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Amit Masurkar brings a satirical screenplay with a thrilling undertone in this brilliantly crafted film ... Full Review

Phuong Le | The Guardian: 3/5 | 6/10
But unlike with Newton, Masurkar is credited for co-writing the dialogue but not the full screenplay, and perhaps this is why Sherni lacks the mathematical exactness of Newton’s satire ... Full Review

Live Mint: - | 6/10
Crisp, conscientious film. Sherni is at its best when trying to entangle the knots of Indian bureaucracy ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 7/10
Some of Sherni’s 131 minutes appear superfluous, but the rest of them are add up to a thoughtful and insightful movie about fighting the good fight ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Makes a decent impact. 'Sherni' has its heart in the right place and appeals to Vidya Balan fans ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 | 7/10
All-in-all, watch the film for its powerful message and for Vidya Balan’s feisty act. She’s a true lioness alright! ... Full Review

Aaj Tak: 3/5 | 6/10
फिल्म में कई फनी और गहरी मीनिंग वाले सीन्स हैं, जो आपको याद रहेंगे. विद्या बालन ने एक बार फिर साबित कर दिया है कि वह दर्शकों के लिए लीक से हटकर कहानिय ... Full Review

Jagran: 3.5/5 | 7/10
'शेरनी' की असली दहाड़ फ़िल्म की सादगी, बारीक़ी और विद्या बालन की अदाकारी ... Full Review

This Sherni will keep you hooked, booked and cooked for most parts. Watch the thrilling jungle safari riding high on emotions as Vidya Balan anchors you through the wilderness with courage and brilliance ... Full Review

India TV: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Compelling, realistic and perspective. Despite compelling performances and a believable plot, Sherni seems like a stretch with a runtime of over 2 hours ... Full Review

The Quint: 4.5/5 | 9/10
A Must-Watch. The unhurried pace which some might find a little too slow for comfort heightens the urgency. The writing and performances both are layered and profound ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 7/10
'Sherni' works despite its slow pace because it provides for a refreshingly new story. Sans the melodrama, the film takes the viewers deep inside the jungles and tells an honest story ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 3/5 | 6/10
Film will leave you enraged and anguished in equal measure ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Sherni leaves the audience with a disquieting silence, making us wonder who is the real beast in a man-animal conflict. There is a glimmer of hope at the end but it is too little ... Full Review

Spotboye: 2/5 | 4/10
Vidya Balan Starrer Is All Roar, No Bite. Sherni is too propagandist, preachy, polemical and plodding to make its desired impact ... Full Review

Desi Martini: 4/5 | 8/10
There might be a section of the audience who might find films like this slow. But, as mentioned before, it just takes you on in the journey, without hurrying or without the purpose of giving you a destination. Take your time, and watch Sherni for a beautiful cinematic experience ... Full Review

Mashable: 3/5 | 6/10
Vidya Balan also brings a certain restraint, unlike her usual charming demeanour, to the subject and alleviates the material with her command of the craft ... Full Review

The News Minute: 4/5 | 8/10
Despite these quibbles and questions though, I enjoyed the meditative quality of Sherni. It does not ignite a false sense of hope in the viewer as it comes to an end; rather, it leaves one with a sense of loss and shame at what we have become ... Full Review

Latestly: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Compared to Newton, Sherni comes across as a weaker followup that lacks the witty narrative which made the former stand out ... Full Review
