Article 370 Reviews

On February 23, the film opened to positive reviews from critics and moviegoers alike. Yami Gautam and Priya Mani garnered widespread praise for their strong performances in the film.

India Today‘s review highlighted: “If there is a note of victory for the team, it definitely comes from the actors’ performances. The two women in power and shouldering most of the job, Priya Mani and Yami Gautam make an impact. Priya Mani as the joint secretary of the PMO emerges as the brain behind getting the special status abrogated from Kashmir. Yami, the woman with a tragic past, is the usual ‘arrogant’ officer on duty like most heroes in Bollywood are.”

Film critic Sumit Kadel said on X, “The film’s superlative action sequences, background music, and the Home Minister’s speech in Parliament are major high points that elevate the overall experience. In conclusion, Article 370 is a gripping and impactful movie that is sure to resonate with audiences. With its high standards of filmmaking and powerful performances, it is bound to be a big success at the box office.”
