Reviews and Ratings by Critics

Review By: The Hindu

Rotting in the cans for almost four years, Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan’s National Award-winning 72 Hoorain has perhaps got a release because the film distribution ecosystem believes that it could cash in the frenzied atmosphere created by The Kashmir Files and The Kerala Story at the box office. But truth be told, 72 Hoorain is not a companion piece to the hateful propaganda propagated by the two films. It is a cautionary tale that questions the motive of the poor foot soldiers of terrorism to become suicide bombers.

72 Hoorain Review

Rating: 3.5/5 Review By: Times of India

By emphasising the futility of mindless killing and shedding light on the notion that religion can often serve as a tool of manipulation, the film effectively communicates the message that religious extremism yields no positive outcomes. Walking a precarious line, the film successfully sidesteps potential pitfalls that could have undermined the efforts of the filmmaker and the entire team. Director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan skillfully navigates the subject matter, crafting an innovative and captivating narrative as a satire, employing the journey of two deceased individuals.

’72 Hoorain’ courted controversy way before it was released in theatres. TThe film was ready back in 2019, and director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan even won the National Award for directing the film. However, it was not released back then. Finally, in 2023, the film has made its way to theaters. One may wonder if the change in the audience’s mindset and their preference for certain content influenced the decision to release it now.

Review By: Jagran

’72 Hoorain’ tries its best to showcase the sensitive issue of ‘terrorism’ and its manipulation with impact but its editing and loud background score make it look like a street play or a theatre act. But the movie does not shy away from displaying the horrendous consequences of terrorism on the citizens, making the audience uncomfortable while watching some of the scenes. The impactful first half and the powerful performances get wasted in the second half of the film, which is all over the place. ’72 Hoorain’ is above average at its best.

Ratings: 2.5/5 Review By: FilmyFocus

While 72 Hoorain makes an effort to portray the delicate subject of “terrorism” and its exploitation with effect, its editing and loud background score give the impression that it is merely a street play or theatrical performance. However, the film does not hold back from showing the horrific effects of terrorism on the populace, making some of the scenes hard for the viewer to watch. The second half of the movie is disjointed and wastes the effective first half and the strong performances. At its best, “72 Hoorain” is superior to ordinary.
