Vijay Ganguly’s choreography is eye-filling. Kingshuk Chakravarty’s background music is very impactful and complements the drama very well. Anshuman Mahaley’s cinematography is superb. Vikram Singh Dahiya’s action scenes are effective. Rajat Poddar’s production designing and Parijat Poddar’s art direction are of a fine standard. Rameshwar S. Bhagat’s editing is very sharp.

More than anything else in the dotty tit-for-tat caper film, it is the clash of two acting schools - or rather, of a school on one hand and a lack of it on the other - that is worth watching. The former is obviously represented by Bajpayee, the latter by Dosanjh. The roles and the approaches differ majorly but both hold their grounds, making for an intriguing spectacle. If only this had been a more substantial rom-com than it is, the two actors might have lifted the film out of its morass of ordinariness. Read the full review here.....
That said, there are parts of the second half that do spice up the proceedings. Like every sports film, ‘Chhalaang’ too, has a prep montage song (by Daler Mahendi) with the underdogs slugging it out in the run up to the D-day. Then, some of the sequences employing practical situations to impart physical training lessons to the students are novel and effectively portrayed. Read the full review here.....
Setting up a clash between ‘doodh-wala bhaiyaa’ who hasn’t bothered to learn Marathi, and a pukka Marathi manoos, must have been funny on paper. But almost nothing in the way this plays out is a funny-bone tickler. When Mangal discovers that his doe-eyed younger sister (Shaikh) likes Suraj, he dials up his wicked plans: so what if his own behen’s happiness is at stake when it comes to putting down yet another to-be-groom? Read the full review here.....
In an intentionally crass film, these elements would not have been as disappointing as they are in a film that seems determined to deliver intelligent humour. Nor does this alter the fact that large parts of Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari are genuinely entertaining. Read the full review here.....

Nawaz is very good, channelling Ayyan’s seething rage into something we can empathise with; the tender passion he exhibits with Tiwari rounds off his character. Das, as Adi, is perfect, and the real star of the movie. Read the full review here.....
Ayyan sees his son as a ticket out of his lower middle-class struggles. His boss, too, isn't averse to bending a few rules. Yes, everybody in Serious Men on a downward moral gradient, be it a high-profile, entitled scientist or a lowly government clerk who derives great pleasure from turning the tables on his upper-caste boss at the first available opportunity. Read the full review here........
It’s like no other film that either Mishra or Siddiqui has done. While staying close to Jospeh’s skepticism about the idea of a just society, they have made the film their own by infusing an indomitable spirit and a certain kind of cleverness, rather cunningness, in the storytelling. Whenever Mishra goes political, Siddiqui ensures it doesn’t become an in your face sermon. Read the full review here......
Looming large over these characters is the BDD Chawl – 15,000 people crammed into 21 blocks. The chawl is a concrete embodiment of all that traps Ayyan, his family and everyone who lives there – caste, education, money, opportunities. DOP Alexander Surkala captures the claustrophobia of the one-room tenements but he also gives the spaces a dream-like quality. Read the full review here....
Another weak link is Acharya's characterisation, which is side-lined to give Ayyan's a stronger footing rendering the payoff somewhat underwhelming. Regardless of its unromantic conclusions, Serious Men never feels as dark as it really is or Manu Joseph intended it to be thanks to its film-maker's humane outlook. At the end of the day, there's always a little more to people than their politics. Read the full review here........
