Nil Battey Sannata Critics Review by Taran Adarsh- Komal Nahta, Rajeev Masand Nil Battey Sannata Review

After successful collaborations including Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Eros International and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions have got together for their next outing, Nil Battey Sannata. Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, it features Swara Bhaskar, Ratna Pathak Shah, Ria Shukla and Pankaj Tripathi in the lead.

The film has got applauds from megastars like Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. the film has been screened in a number of global film festival including in China and Europe, wherein it has received good round of applauds.

The promo of Nil Battey Sannata has been appreciated, though it would all boil down to the word of mouth from the audience. That too is expected to set in mainly from Saturday onwards since the first day would go into gathering the critical acclaim and it would be only towards the end of the day that audience footfall is expected to gain some kind of momentum.


The story of Nil Battey Sannata revolves around mother-daughter relationship. The film shows that mother (played by Swara) and daughter (Ria ) live in a poor condition. The mother, who works as a maid, wants her daughter to study and make her career. Ratna plays an important role in changing Swara’s character’s life in this heart-warming story.

Swara who is playing the lead role the mother of the notorious teenager is simply splendid about her performance over the silver screen. Remember her character played in Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel, she has been incredible in her Bihari role bringing out the dialogues in Bihari accent. The other actors like Ria, Ratna Pathak and Pankaj Tripathi were also decent over the silver screen though they were seen for a small screen presence yet they remained par.
