What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Epic film is going nowhere slowly.
Laetitia Pople Meesterlike wegvoering na ander tyd en plek.
Stephen Farber Epic falls short.
Tomatometer Though Midnight's Children is beautiful to look at and poignant in spots, its script is too indulgent and Deepa Mehta's direction, though ambitious, fails to bring the story together cohesively.
