Has Its Moments But Isn't As Rewarding As It Ought To Have Been

You do get the satirical tone of few scenes. Then there is probably this take on how the middle class probably choke when they actually get to live the life they dreamt of. The anxiousness is probably too much to handle and they probably are better off when they remain low key. Maybe I got this infe...(more)

Anurag Kashyap's demonetisation saga is curiously hesitant and dull

There are a couple of standout scenes such as the one in which Sarita and Sushant fight in bed with their kid lying asleep between them and another involving the couple, a kitchen drain and top-notch sound design by Gautam Nair.

Anurag Kashyap's film is unusual, thrilling but not his best

Choked is not something to be watched with high expectations but it's not disappointing for sure.(more)

Choked almost manages to be a real depiction of life after demonetisation for a lower middle class household, but ends up being a puzzle in a puddle.

If we begin with the good bits, it gradually dawns on you that he has shown you how lives changed post demonetisation without making any scathing remark. For example, an IT official reveals how many politicians were in the know of this move and had gotten away with it. That shows how the 'masterstro...(more)

Choked Is Arguably Anurag Kashyap´┐Żs Most Indifferent Film

Much of Choked is overcome by the urge to critique the daftness of demonetisation. In the process, the filmmaking itself takes a backseat (more)
