Apun Ka Choice: Black & White deals with a very relevant issue in the times of terrorism and racial profiling. Not only does the movie gives a message of hope that terrorists could be reformed, it also questions the way, the state goes about dealing with terrorism. It is an honest and commendable effort by Subhash Ghai, and it deserves to be seen at least once.
CNN-IBN: Loosely inspired by the Harrison Ford-Brad Pitt starrer The Devil’s Own, Ghai’s film explores the relationship between a terrorist and the couple, who open their home and their hearts, to him. Subhash Ghai’s Black & White is an amateurish effort from a filmmaker clearly out of his depth, as far as his subject matter is concerned.
DNA India: Black & White suffers from a lack of subtlety and absence of nuances. Every thought, action and emotion is explained in words and the dialogues skirt dangerously, close to the preachy.
Glamsham: Directed by Subhash Ghai, this movie is far from the commercial films he’s known for, and it raises many questions and comes with a disturbing message.
Hindustan Times: Worth a look for viewers, who care more for their conscience than their popcorn!
IndiaFM: Black & White is a fine effort from a master storyteller, who dares to change lanes with this film. In that respect, an effort like this needs to be lauded.
Now Running: A standing ovation for Subhash Ghai, for venturing into a territory, that would be considered uninviting for an escapist entertainer.
Rediff: Black & White is a relevant watch. This is a film of urgency, make no mistake, and both protagonist and screenplay talk only as much as is required. As for the director himself, he doesn’t even make the obligatory cameo. It is the sentiment that plays hero.
Times Of India: Black and White is a thought-provoking film, that challenges the state’s stereotypical formula to combat terrorism. And somewhere between its moments of light and shade, it holds a glimmer of hope and humanism: yes, fanatics can be cured, terrorists can be tamed, secularism may live long.
