Mixed Review

The movie has had mix on review feedback. Likewise Isha Arora of TIMC gave 7 stars out of 10 to the movie said

“Surapur’s direction was a well-thought and shot movie and performances by the two lead actors will win everyone’s heart. We wish that The Fakir of Venice could have been release on the silver screen, much sooner but it’s definitely worth a watch.”

Reza Noorani of The Times of India rate the movie 2.5 out of 5 stars and writes

“While the first half meanders and stretches on, it is in the second half when the film finds its groove. At 1 hour and 38 minutes, the film still feels a bit long. Had the makers work on the screenplay and made it a tad more complex, it would have been a great film on how, people from different classes, connect with each other and posed bigger questions on mortality and the nature of death. But it falls short of that and ends up being a weak, sideshow at some European art fair.”
