Dobaaraa review by NDTV

Saibal Chatterjee, in his review, gave 3 out of 5 stars to Dobaaraa. He called Anurag Kashyap’s directorial a nimbly-crafter time-loop thriller that banks on pivotal performance by Taapsee Pannu.

“What is especially striking about Dobaaraa is that it makes no major concessions to the audience by resorting to overt explication of the phenomenon that triggers the female protagonist’s predicament although, admittedly, parts of the film are rather easy to decipher,” reviewed NDTV.

Dobaaraa review by Firstpost

Anna MM Vetticad gave 2.5 stars out of 5 to Taapsee Pannu’s film. The headline read, ‘Anurag Kashyap, Taapsee Pannu’s time-travel saga is mildly engaging when not verbose.’

“Like Mirage, Dobaaraa too is muddled about the Que sera, sera (Whatever will be, will be) element in its philosophy because of an apparent determination to feature a relatable romance in every parallel sphere that Antara enters,” reviewed Firstpost.

Dobaaraa review by Free Press Journal

For Rohit Bhatnagar, Taapsee Pannu’s starrer is a stylised thriller and an enticing tale of a parallel world.

“Taapsee is a good performer but her monotony kills the mood, however, the plot is so interesting that you hardly get time to distract yourself to realise an A-lister face is the torchbearer of the film,” reviewed Free Press Journal.

Dobaaraa review by The Quint

Giving 3.5 stars to the film, Pratikshya Mishra compared its score background with the film Shor Police and called the film engaging in its complexity.

“This time-loop thriller is building a jigsaw puzzle around the audience, waiting for them to connect the pieces while assuring them that it will all come together eventually. Dobaaraa isn’t without flaws: what Antara’s character has in urgency, she lacks in emotion,” reviewed The Quint.

Dobaaraa review by Bollywood Hungama

Bollywood Hungama gave 2 stars to Dobaaraa and said the second half of the film lacks buzz and niche which might take a huge toll on its box office prospects.

“Anurag Kashyap’s direction is decent. Despite the complex narrative, he ensures that the audiences don’t get confused about where the film is heading,” reviewed Bollywood Hungama.

Dobaaraa review by The Indian Express

Shubhra Gupta, in her review, wrote the Taapsee Pannu-starrer never feels like an Anurag Kashyap film and it comes off too choppy and muddled.

“The time-travel mystery, an official remake of the 2018 Spanish film ‘Mirage’, also plays with our heads. Is it possible to go back in time, and change things around? Can multiple versions of us exist, at the same time, in parallel universes?” reviewed Shubhra Gupta.
