Rotten: A predictable patchwork of forbidden romance, English arrogance, a gun given as a gift, suicide, corruption, deception, rising Indian nationalism and a short-lived chase through the jungle.
- Adam Bernstein, Washington Post, Friday, May 16, 2008
Rotten: So pretty and so utterly lifeless you can almost smell the embalming fluid coming off the screen.
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Friday, May 9, 2008
Rotten: It's standard soap opera dramaturgy in wrinkled linens, loincloths and saris.
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday, May 15, 2008
Things do not end well for a love affair between two different races and casts set in India as colonial rule is ending. The Indian scenery is worth the watch.

Great movie. Good story plot. Here is a movie by Santosh Sivan. This is a movie that captivates you, and it holds such a great interest that you are left feeling intrigued. Great cast- Nandita Das, Linus Roache, and Rahul Bose. Amazing music. Definitely worth seeing.
