Coming of Age Cinema
6 June 2012 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Peddlers is one of those gems which is churned out by the the Bollywood film industry maybe once in five years. If it has to be described in one word, I think 'Extraordinary' would be a good one.Nobody would disagree with the fact that Gulshan Devaaiahh has established himself as one of the most promising actors of Bollywood after his amazing performances in Shaitan,That Girl In Yellow Boots,and has delivered the performance of his career in Peddlers.The film is dark with but the presentation is such that you do feel pity for the people in it but can't help but sadistically laugh at them. That is what Vasan Bala has been able to achieve with Peddlers which very few directors in India can manage to.

This film will surely help Bollywood break out of the barricades of outdated film making, and shift towards a more contemporary technique of pleasing audiences.

10/10 from Die-Hard Gulshan Fan
