Verdict: A spine-chilling horror film that does not rely on jump-scares. Ever since Tumbbad premiered at the 33rd Venice Critics Week (and was the first Indian film to be screened there), many have been eagerly awaiting its theatrical release. Most reviews say that the film has reinvented the horror genre and rightly so. It is very difficult to categorize Tumbbad in a genre as it goes beyond and... ...Read full review

Tumbbad is a moody and atmospheric film. Some viewers may find the film a little too deep and disturbing, but fans of Hollywood horror films will be reminded of memorable movies in the genre like Pans Labyrinth (2006) and Eraserhead (1977). This one is genuinely scary. ...Read full review
Directed by Rahi Anil Barve and shot by the incredible Pankaj Kumar, Tumbbad is a visually startling film that seeks to surprise instead of scare. It plays out like a Panchatantra tale narrated by a drunk and inappropriate uncle, a story that has a very simple moral core this one is about golden eggs and golden geese but has bits that get under the skin. This is not a horror movie, nor does it create a particularly substantial myth, but the little gothic details are delicious. ...Read full review

Unlike a typical horror film where you have the spirit haunting the protagonist and his family, Tumbbad turns the table with Vinayak exploiting Hastar instead for his insatiable greed. That`s exactly what makes the film stand out from the rest. ...Read full review
It may not be too much of a stretch to say that, instead of a haunted house, Tumbbad is about a haunted nation, possessed not by the devil but by the past. Its been a while since something (apparently) genre-based turned out so rich and mysterious, so defiantly its own thing. ...Read full review

Either way, what we have here though is actually an artsy, gutsy mix of mythology, history, horror, and moral science. Do these elements seamlessly add up for you to naturally feel for the characters in the story? Honestly, no. Does the incredibly strong visual craftsmanship (rare for an Indian indie) satisfyingly guide you into a world hitherto unseen/unknown? Oh, absolutely. ...Read full review
The hero of this film is a relentless gold-digger. Very much on the lines of his modus operandi, the makers keep pursuing the film long after their creative gold mine has run empty. Does the climax save Tumbbad? Somewhat. ...Read full review
