Ratings:.2.5/5 Review By: Rachit Gupta  Site: Times Of India

The Tashkent Files makes some shocking claims about India’s political history, dynasty politics and the citizen’s right to know the truth. All its sensational content is relevant and important social issues are highlighted, too. But, the storytelling effort is half-baked and lacks the finesse that such a heavy-duty film requires. It also doesn’t help that the final slide of the movie tells the audience that the authenticity of all the facts displayed in the film cannot be verified.

Ratings:.0/5 Review By: Shubra  Site: Indian Express

The Tashkent Files asks pertinent questions: Why was no post-mortem carried out? Why has the government refused to declassify a document in its possession that pertains to Shastri’s death? Conspiracy theories are discussed at length and “state-sponsored murder” is often used. “Evidence” is presented to reveal the “truth”, only for the last slide of the film to reveal that the authenticity of the facts displayed could not be verified.

Ratings:.1/5 Review By: Jyoti  Site:Hindustan Times

The Tashkent Files is a propaganda film primarily and makes no bones to hide the fact. Mithun’s character seems to be talking for the director when he calls historians “liberal terrorists”, NGOs “social terrorists”, judges “judicial terrorists” and media “TRP terrorists”. While “presstitutes”, “liberal siculars” and “war of narratives” crawl out of social media onto the big screen in this film, the choicest of shots are saved for the Congress and Indira Gandhi.

Ratings:.3/5 Review By: Ramesh  Site: Rediff

The Tashkent Files’ usage of real footage, including political statements, newspaper headlines, letters, books and articles lends it a feeling of authenticity. The second half of the film reveals several lesser known details, which come as a shocking eye-opener. But, to reach the second half, one has to wade through the lethargic first half.

Ratings:.2/5 Review By: Anusha  Site: Times Now

A strong story turned into an OTT drama that suffers from lazy writing, the Vivek Agnihotri film got all good actors on board without knowing how to exactly use their talents. The Tashkent Files is a rather disappointing watch.

Ratings:.1/5 Review By: Priyanka Jha  Site: News18

In films such as The Tashkent Files, mixing facts and fiction in the interest of a telling a good dramatic story is par for the course. There have been a few attempts at conspiracy-theory films in India over the last few years which could all have been great movie-making material in the hands of good storytellers. By eschewing the tenets of effective filmmaking, The Tashkent Files fails to get both, the fact and fiction right.

Ratings:.0.5/5 Review By: Saibal  Site: NDTV

No two ways about it: The Tashkent Files is Google search filmmaking at its worst. Banking upon crowd-sourced research, it peddles untruths and half-truths culled from unverified quarters and seeks to pass itself off as a great, gutsy piece of investigative cinema. The unabashedly partisan film does a great deal of hectoring and hollering for nearly two and a half hours but to no real avail. In the end, it places the only card that it is genuinely interested in on the table – its love for a ‘strong’ leader who can inflict military defeat on Pakistan. You don’t have to be a genius to figure out the ‘philosophy’ The Tashkent Files is driving at.
