Shaitan Reviews, Ratings: Shaitan Movie Review Rediff, TOI, NDTV

Shaitan, the hindi thriller film directed by debutant Bejoy Nambiar has been released. The movie stars Rajeev Khandelwal , Kalki Koechlin , Neil Bhoopalam, Kirti Kulhari, Shiv Pandit, Rajit Kapur and Nikhil Chinappa in the lead roles and produced by Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra.

Shaitan is believed to be the new version of Anurag Kashyap’s debut film Paanch, which was banned in 2001 by the Censor Board.

Here is how popular reviewers rate this movie.

Rediff Reviews
Populated exclusively by the very coolest of character actors, backgrounded by a blaring retro-loving soundtrack, and shot dizzyingly in hypertechnicolor. Debutant director Bejoy Nambiar shows his own twisted side with Shaitan, but the film has producer Kashyap's pawprints all over its treatment -- which is, eventually, what makes it watchable.
Ratings: 2/5

Slowly but surely Shaitan loses steam, becomes repetitive and ends in a whimper. Which is a shame because Nambiar has talent.
Rating: 3/5

Shaitan is a near-perfect film and an absolute must-watch. It is cool, bold, whacky, and contemporary without being wannabe. One of the finest films of the year will blow your mind and you might want to watch it again to let it all sink in.
Rating: 4/5

Times of India
If you haven't seen Paanch , watch Shaitan to know what you missed. If you have seen Paanch , watch Shaitan to know how it retains the essence of the original yet has an individual appeal of its own.
Rating: NA

Effortlessly cool. Thriller on speed. Brilliantly written with some of the brightest young stars of Bollywood.
Rating: 4/5
