Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Despite the obvious passages, Mukherjee shows he has a way of adding nuance to a scene. Wake Up Sid is a promising first effort.

Anurag D A must see for youth, specially if u r in final year of college. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review test 1 Loved this, so underrated movie of that time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/22/23 Full Review arun s A decent one time watchable movie, which could have been better in the later half. It has the feel of a web series, which isn't bad per se, but you hope a few situations were presented differently. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A pleasant and likeable coming-of-age tale. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member YEAH I Really liked it. The teenagers nowadays deserves these kind of movies. This was an awesome movies a lot of things can be learned from this one and definitely not like the typical shitty movies of bollywood . this have a different flavour. I personally enjoyed it . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review yash b "Wake Up Sid" is an important reminder that everyone has to grow up one day. I quite liked the messages and the main story in this movie. I thought Ranbir Kapoor did a great job and portrayed a realistic guy who has many flaws but becomes easy to root for. I think the movie does start to drag near the end and hits a few predictable notes, but it's a very solid feel-good movie. I think a lot of young people will find something to relate to in this movie and can definitely learn some important lessons. Overall, it's a crowd-pleasing movie with a great lead performance that I really appreciated as a young person. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
