Udita Jhunjhunwala Livemint Irrfan precisely spits out the acerbic dialogue written by Hussain Dalal. He's a delight, whether in the foreground or background. Thanks to these two talents, Karwaan manages to navigate the pot-holed script. Jul 29, 2019 Full Review Anupama Chopra Film Companion Karwaan stays on the surface. Which, it must be said, is beautiful - this film will make you want to book a trip to Kerala. But it could have been much more. Rated: 2/5 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Swetha Ramakrishnan Firstpost Like driving through a lush green road, earphones plugged in with your thoughts playing out like the opening credits of a film. At some point you will get tired of the view, and you may even fall asleep. But the journey moves along anyway, much like life. Oct 10, 2023 Full Review Saibal Chatterjee NDTV Karwaan had the potential to be a fun ride. Unfortunately, much of it remains unrealized. Rated: 2.5/5 Jul 21, 2020 Full Review Anna M.M. Vetticad Firstpost The film offers a nuance not often seen in Hindi cinema or Indian cinema at large, when it speaks of a generation gap between youngsters separated in age by perhaps a decade. Rated: 2.5/5 May 7, 2019 Full Review Rahul Desai Film Companion The film, to its credit, recognizes here that a road trip is little more than a memorable car ride. Perhaps even the director recognizes that the adventure, in fact, lies within - as opposed to the actual physicality of a journey. Rated: 3/5 Aug 27, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

tarek a I love road movies in general, and Kawraan has a special charm to it. First of all seeing the beloved Irrfan Khan rendered me emotional. Here he is in all his splendour, a natural actor, stealing every scene with effortless grace. Did he know he would leave us just a few years later? Every time I see him on the screen I am grateful for his thespian gifts to us, and devastated by his loss. He cannot be replaced. Dulquer plays a lost young man very well, who passed his passion for photography on an intersection long past, an interest I can very much relate to. Mithila is delightful as a firebrand sprite of a girl who inspires both her companions to be better men, and in the process learns some wisdom and maturity. This movie is about running out of time and opportunities. There are bends on the road we must take to chase our dreams, words that must be said. There are journeys we must take to find ourselves. And on the road, we might find near and dear ones we never knew existed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The makers commit the sacrilege of casting Irrfan for a role that might have better suited Johny Lever. Even overlooking this glaring blooper, Karwaan never really amounts to anything. Its that pretty-looking gift box that promises fun but delivers a dud. On the bright side, Dulquer Salman and Mithila Palkar are nice. Especially remarkable is the ease with Malayalam movie-star Salman spouts his Hindi lines. Lots of hard work seems to have gone into achieving this apparent fluency, that bigger stars from his illustrious father's generation never came close to mastering. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Story is really out of the box. Irrfan does not need any praise. He is just awesome. Mithila and Dalquer have really done pretty well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review joel d A good pleaser for a quiet afternoon. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the most underrated movies !! Irfan khan one is good ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member 'Kaarwaan' is an exciting cinematography drive handled in the most subtle ways by the cinematographer Avinash Arun, leading man Dulquer Salman and especially by its deliberately in-form star Irfan Khan. Mithila Palkar delivers a less-than-enchanting, messy and sweetly short performance. Aakarsh Khurana matches the sync of wonderful camera shots in the best ways. Had the screenplay not dragged so much in the wobbly first hour, the film would have been as much enjoyable as the best of this year. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
