Milan Talkies meta review: Ali Fazal and Shraddha Srinath’s film FAILS to impress the critics

Actor and filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is known for his intriguing story-telling with films like Paan Singh Tomar, Shagird and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangstar franchise this time chose to narrate a light-hearted rom-com in the heartland of the country with Milan Talkies. Honestly, the buzz of the film was quite low and since it released today, we saw the film completely failing to please the audience and critics. Let’s see what reviewers have said about Milan Talkies.

Times of India gave the film 2.5 stars and wrote, “In a bid to serve up a gourmet of entertainment, Milan Talkies ends up becoming a goulash of commercial fare. The effort to entertain and be dramatic shows and that’s never a good sign for a film celebrating the love of cinema.”

Koimoi.com bashed the film and wrote, “All said and done, Milan Talkies is filmy torture! There are some movies whom you label as the ‘headache gifting’ ones, but this delivers you the headache personally at the doorstep of your head. Just skip it!”

The Indian Express also criticised this venture and wrote, “Milan Talkies is a long, laborious film with no sense of direction. It wastes some great cameos — from Ashutosh Rana to Sikandhar Kher — and is too muddled and stretched in its telling. As is routine for Bollywood pastiches, a Holi dance number crops up near the end. It’s a scene in a film that Annu is directing, but instead of the onscreen actors, we see him and Maithili as the performing pair. That also sums up, sadly, the fate of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s recent works. Like his hero, he is a director who would rather act.”
