Khap (2011) Review Aggregator
Khap, the movie on honour killings in Haryana that has been directed by Ajay Sinha, stars Om Puri, Mohnish Bahl, Govind Namdev and Uvika Chaudhary. The film that was released this Friday has evoked below average responses from the critics.
Daijiworld suggests that you could very well give this film a miss: “One wonders what the director, Ajai Sinha, was trying to achieve in the movie. It doesn’t move you, and even if you feel for an issue like honour killings, the innumerable songs and dances will kill your feelings in no time.”
Nowrunning brushes the film aside as easily avoidable: “Ajay Sinha who’s made an obscure film Stop in the past delivers a very shoddy effort in dealing with a sensitive subject such as Honour Killing. Instead of delving deeper into the topic he tries to fictionalise the story to such extremes that there is a love story with many lovey dovey songs, lots of father-son drama and rona-dhona in the end.”
Koimoi feels it sadly doesn’t serve what it intends to : “Ajai Sinha’s direction is just about okay as it fails to make the film hard-hitting or even soul-stirring or thought-provoking.Khap is a dull and dry drama even though it is well-intentioned. At the ticket windows, it will fail to make any mark whatsoever.”
