Story with spirits and politicians who wish to possess. Large potential for appearing and writing. Appearing delivers. Writing behaves prefer it’s possessed—erratic, jerky, creates
by Devesh Sharma,
…Spirit possession is the entire level of the movie and we should say Bhumi Pednekar has put her coronary heart and soul in these scenes. She has taken to the break up persona routine to a T. Bhumi is definitely the one actor within the movie who has believed in the entire shambolic plot and given her all to it. She performs her half with an timeless conviction and her appearing is the one redeeming characteristic within the movie. Mahie Gill, Arshad Warsi and Jisshu Sengupta are all gifted people however are horribly typecast right here and are additional slowed down by the erratic writing. Kudos to them for not laughing out loud and going with the circulate….

…Whereas Thaman’s background music in Bhaagamathie was a personality in itself, Jakes Bejoy fails to recreate the identical magic in Durgamati. Speaking concerning the songs, ‘Baras Baras’ makes for a soothing hear, however the visuals fall in need of being impactful. ‘Heer’ has forgettable lyrics….
by Ambica Sachin,
…The narrative isn’t gripping regardless of all of the excessive octane motion, and one by no means will get to really feel the horror of what’s being performed out on the display. Admittedly the dramatic scenes the place the sedate, mild-mannered Chanchal transforms right into a fierce and livid Durgamati ought to have been the highpoint of the film, however even that fizzles out….
by Pallabi Dey Purkayastha,
…In a world the place politics is commonly synonymous to hooliganism to some and egalitarianism is an alien idea (once more, to some), ‘Durgamati’ does have a lesson or two to impart however the narrative and its storytelling approach is so bland that it slips via the cracks. A dialogue round sturdy ideologies together with girls empowerment is all the time welcome, nevertheless it may very well be delivered higher….
by Rahul Desai,
…For 155 deafening minutes, Durgamati goes hammer and tongs to ship what is actually a Three-minute message. It’s the final month of a troublesome yr, and if that is nonetheless the longer term that awaits us on the opposite facet, pardon me for saying: I don’t like negativity….
by Bobby Sing,
…In all, Durgamati comes as yet one more disappointment within the horror style that simply manages to make a saving grace sort of influence via the twist in its climax. Apparently, that too reminds you of a cult English movie’s end result, point out of which is able to truthfully spoil the whole premise of the movie….
by Vishal Verma,
…Bhumi Pednekar disappoints in an enormous approach in her worst film until date. She charms initially however quickly after coming into the mansion her efforts to sniffle, snarl, fails miserably. DURGAMATI – THE MYTH was not her cup of tea in any respect. She is just not as sturdy as Anushka Shetty and the way can Amol Palekar do a job designed for Sunny Deol….
by Rohan Naahar,
…He movies the best scenes in probably the most difficult method — a number of cameras zigzag round characters as they make delirious speeches — and spells out each plot twist as if he’s a major faculty instructor. And to think about the vanity that should’ve gone into insisting that Durgmati ought to be 154 minutes lengthy — that’s greater than half-an-hour longer than The Exorcist, and roughly two-and-a-quarter hours longer than your common episode of Scooby Doo. The movie is stuffed with ‘pardafaash’ moments, the place characters abruptly pause the plot to cackle about their ulterior motives. Ashok thinks we’re all 5 years previous….
by Saibal Chatterjee,
…Yahaan kya chal raha mujhe kuch samajh nahi aa raha (I haven’t got the foggiest concept what’s going on right here), says one particular person. Precisely our level. Durgamati – The Delusion is a horror story all proper. It peddles a bunch of tawdry notions about vengeance and the occult, all served with an overdose of frenzied drama….
by Nandini Ramnath,
…Not one of the different performances is noteworthy, with the film working purely on the idea of judiciously scattered pink herrings, scary moments and its massive revelation. The film calls for suspension of disbelief, however not the place you count on it – its smartest trick, which has been lifted from that Hollywood movie that we could not title….
by Vinayak Chakravorty,
…The erratic storytelling impacts the characters and, in flip, the performances, too. Bhumi Pednekar brings alive the haunting of Chanchal with the anticipated quota of bawling and rolling of the eyes, as a high-speed fan stays firmly pointed at her undone hair. She is let down by a ridiculous screenplay, as are the opposite confirmed artistes within the forged as Arshad Warsi, Jisshu Sengupta and Mahie Gill….
by Priyanka Roy,
…At one level, a psychiatrist makes use of the phrase Kakorrhaphiophobia, when simply saying ‘concern of failure’ would have been a lot simpler. What I felt throughout the entire of Durgamati? Thaasophobia… the concern of being bored. That was pure horror. Even when the movie wasn’t….
