Spotlight  Review RatingJyoti Sharma Bawa (Hindustan Times)

Inarguably one of the finest films on investigative journalism, Spotlight is an excellent critique of what blind deference to authority or faith can do to you.There are no frills to excite the audience, save for the emotional flow of one of the most powerful films you will see this year.  Read Full Review

Spotlight  Review RatingTasneem Balapurwala (Economic Times)

The most horrifying thing about Spotlight is that it's all true. A tight script helps the film along at just the right pace. Spotlight does not attempt to lionise its protagonists. Instead, it simply presents the facts and their ramifications, and that in itself is powerful enough.   Read Full Review

when a movie like Spotlight comes along that punches you in the gut without any cinematic tool except powerful acting, it's a cause for cheer. But it's not the plot of Spotlight that shakes you up the most - it's the performances. It's as real and raw a performance can get.   Read Full Review

Spotlight  Review RatingShalini Langer (The Indian Express)

It's also a portrait, and as real as it can get, of the kind of legwork that often is easy to discount when one sees a story of this impact.Mark Ruffalo's film is a gripping portrait of what happens when institutions decide they are bigger than the people who make them.  Read Full Review

Spotlight  Review RatingHelen O'hara (Empire)

Spotlight, is the real thing, a supremely talented cast who subsume ego to tell a story of a group achievement. And despite that lack of conspicuous melodrama, this film communicates its high stakes so effectively that even photocopying seems unbearably tense.  Read Full Review
