The tie of realism and relevance makes ribbon irresistibly credible
Right from couple goals to family goals to modern day parenting to other issues, the film has it all wrapped up with a light-hearted ribbon.
The best part about the film is, it feels real and relatable, not only because it shows a couple who are both each other’s best friends and enemies, but also because the movie presents the simple and beautiful moments in the most genuine way.
The film touches hearts and would have won a blue ribbon only if it delved more into our brains.

Read Detail Review
Rakhee Sandilya’s debut movie as a director where she tries and put all that a couple goes through in one pot, and a flower booms out of that mix.
And well that flower is one debate. Serving everything on a platter sort of decreased the predictability. It also snatched away focus on many important things that could have dealt in detail.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Director Rakhee Sandilya along with Rajeev Upadhyay has written this film where it seems you are watching a couple’s story from your balcony, it’s that relatable and real.
A good editing was surely needed in the film but the camerawork was so refreshing for us. Nothing filmy and everything alive. Even the dialogues aren’t filmy or typical, they are like real life conversations.
The first half isnt stretched like the second half, but it’s the post interval where the film actually follows a track. Up until then, you get no clue where the film will lead. The climax (though abrupt) but says a lot about one phrase in life: a common man doesn’t have enough hands.
The film also takes up a lot of relevant issues during its course, it doesn’t dig up on them but highlights them only which is a good thing because else the movie’s breezy feel would have collapsed.
Kalki Koechlin is in full swing. We have loved her in many roles, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, but with her Hindi on top and her effortless act, she scores big in this film.
Sumeet Vyas delivers an honest and connecting performance.
Kiara Majithia as their daughter in the second half is super cute.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Charkha is a good song but sadly not appropriately used in the film. lack of background score added relatability but its presence would have brightened up the whole script.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
With the current course Bollywood has taken, Ribbon isn’t a surprise because our industry has been coming up with good films like these. But it certainly is a breath of fresh air.
