TOI - Kudos to Irrfan and Nishikant Kamat for daring to make this poignant, provocative and politically incorrect piece of cinema, that makes its point unabashedly. Though predictable and a tad stretched, the emotional crime drama unfolds like a thriller. It tears your heart out by exposing the plight of the Middle-class citizens and their 'aukad' in the eyes of those in power.
The Indian Express - It is a look at the system warts and all, it is damning critique of rot in politics and it is the story of a common man pushed to his limits. How the man, who has lost his everything, takes on the powers that be and emerges victorious is what Madaari is all about.
NDTV - Despite Irrfan's controlled star turn - he moves from sorrow to sarcasm, and from shock to scorn, with effortless ease - the film makes rather heavy weather of its progress towards a bizarre climax in a Mumbai chawl that brings the audience back to the falcon and chick scenario.
Reddif - Madaari is not a film that will stay with you as you ,in your day to day routine ,succumb to the pressure and become part of the corruption that ails our system ,feels Savera R Someshwar.
