Bollywood Hungama: When PINK`s promos came out, one expected an edgy and a realistic cinema. The fact is that PINK does not disappoint at all in this aspect. It boasts of a gripping screenplay that holds your attention till the end. Despite the film`s slow narrative, especially in the first half, it keeps you engaged and hooked. The film has some hard hitting dialogues (Ritesh Shah), which elevates the situations and the corresponding elements.

Hindustan Times: Pink is a savage indictment of our sordid patriarchy that shackles women in stereotypes. Here character is determined by the clothes you wear, what time you come home, how much you smile at men, whether you drink and, of course, your sexual history.
Times Of India: Pink is a powerful statement on the existing feudal mindset of a majority of India, where men and women are judged by a different yardstick. And if the man happens to be from a powerful family, then the fight for justice is even more skewed. 

SpotboyE: Obviously alluding to the Nirbhaya rape case of December 10, 2012 in Delhi, producer Shoojit Sircar and director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury create a fictional story about three young women brutalized by a politician’s nephew and his cronies. To add insult to injury, the girls are framed. Now, it`s up to an on-the-skids lawyer to obtain that elusive factor called justice in the city known as the `rape capital of India.`

Nowrunning: It has superb moments when Amitabh Bachchan lawyers up and finds all the loopholes in the investigation made by the police, the prosecution. It has outbursts from the girls who have been accused of everything from solicitation to attempt at murder.
