The Hollywood Reporter
Anurag Kashyap's Black Friday is a superb and devastating piece of cinema that with justification can be compared favorably to Gillo Pontocorvo's classic "The Battle of Algiers" in its dispassionate yet sweeping journalistic inquiry into cataclysmic social and political events.
L.A. Weekly
The movie would be all crisp surfaces without the internal combustion of Menon, as a man who bears down on familiar procedures in order to avoid being overwhelmed by his emotions.
The New York Times
Epic and raw, Black Friday is cut from the same bloody cloth as "Salvador" and "Munich."
Opening with the Mohandas Gandhi epigram "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind," it humanizes the bombers without excusing their actions.
Despite its large cast and complex criss-crossing from past to present, the movie rarely catches fire as an involving human drama.
