'If the son of a doctor becomes a doctor, the son of an engineer, an engineer, then won't the daughter of a domestic worker become a domestic worker?' A mother of a stubborn young girl who lives in a shanty town in Agra decides that she is going to prove her daughter's statement wrong. And we get to watch a delightful film on relationships, on tenacity, on education...

Nil Battey Sannata Review RatingSaibal Chatterjee (Ndtv)

A disarmingly simple and heart-warming film that articulates its message without making a song and dance about it, Nil Battey Sannata is a fine achievement.It shines a light on a segment of society where life is a daily grind and where the smallest dreams face the most daunting obstacles.   Read Full Review

Nil Battey Sannata Review RatingShubhra Gupta (Indian Express)

The title is a fallen-into-disuse Hindi phrase. Nil means zero. Bata/ Battey is a word for division. And 'sannata' is, of course, silence. Or 'shoonya'. Zero divided by zero is equal to? Yep. Zero. 'Nil Battey Sannata' has a strong message about how education can change your life. It does underline the message, but stays just short of being preachy or message-y. And leaves you with a warm glow.   Read Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala (Firstpost)

Using locations, sets, costumes, language and setting (Agra), Iyer Tiwari creates an authentic world with a universal emotional core. However, at the close, the narrative trips over its own benevolence. Through well-etched scenes and solid characters the film delivers important lessons about dreams, motivation, friendship, parenting and sacrifice, including the view that one should befriend math rather than fight it.  Read Full Review

Nil Battey Sannata Review RatingSuhani Singh (India Today)

Maths is that five-letter word that evokes as much fear in some as the word devil. Against the background of complex equations, Ashwini Iyer Tiwari has set a sweet, straightforward tale of a stubborn teenager and her equally stubborn mother.Mother's Day is on May 8 and Nil Battey Sannata is a timely, fitting tribute to the paramount figure in all our lives without whom we are all lesser beings.  Read Full Review
