As far as thrillers go, `Rukh` is a one-of-a kind Hindi film. It does not travel at a breakneck speed as most thrillers do, but the timing is not slow either. The film moves at a perfectly natural pace. At its heart, `Rukh` is a coming-of-age film. ...Read full review

Looking for a high-decibel family drama built around grand confrontation scenes between father and son? Rukh definitely isn`t your kind of weekend watch. An air of studied mellowness pervades Atanu Mukherjee`s maiden film - an intense, engaging coming-of-age tale that features Manoj Bajpayee in a stellar role billed as a `special appearance`. ...Read full review
An issue with this film is that in several scenes, not much happens and you`re compelled to tune into every micro action, gesture and twitch. For instance, early in the film, a still frame finds a middle-aged man having dinner in a leisurely manner as he makes cursory small talk with his wife. ...Read full review
Helmed by debutant director Atanu Mukherjee, Rukh stuns with its self-assured solid storytelling. A thriller where details bleed out one at a time, and the understated drama slowly spreads its tentacles taking us the viewers firmly in its grip. ...Read full review

Rukh is not a Manoj Bajpayee film. The opening credits of Atanu Mukherjee`s suspense drama declares this loud and clear: Bajpayee`s is only a special appearance. It falls under the category of those rare films where a bigger name takes a backseat and allows a child artiste to anchor the ship. ...Read full review
Rukh may be lit like a YouTube Short Film and may have its share of other technical problems, but theres something disturbingly original about director Atanu Mukherjees vision, feels Sreehari Nair. ...Read full review
Rukh, by writer-director Atanu Mukherjee, is a slow-paced, intimately-framed dramatisation of an episode in the life of a middle class family. By all measures it is a significant, life-altering, traumatic episode, and the film tiptoes to it and its aftermath unhurriedly, taking all the time in the world to build up the mild aura of a thriller. ...Read full review
