Even as Kriti Sanon and Sushant Singh Rajput’s Raabta struggles to keep up pace at the box office, making just Rs 10 crore so far, her performance in the film is being lauded by the critics.

The film, a love story told over a two lifetimes of the main characters, is being panned by critics but there is still a silver lining in it for Kriti.

Here’re some reviews she received:

Shubhra Gupta said, “Sanon is a surprise, having made clear strides since we saw her last, but a little more depth in the way she was written would have been welcome”.

Nihit Bhave shared, “Kriti Sanon surprises. She looks good and seems to have honed her acting skills”

Shweta Ramakrishnan said, “Kriti reminds you of an early Deepika Padukone. She’s poised and articulate but not as emotive. At least not as yet as Kriti has a pleasant vibe to her, even as she’s playing a layered character. While Sanon’s last release was Dilwale, Raabta will finally be a platform for her to shine and show what she can do as an actor.”

Sonil Dedhia shared, “Kriti, too, is on-point and will remind you of Deepika Padukone from Vijan’s previous productions, ‘Cocktail’ (2012) and ‘Love Aaj Kal’ (2009).”

Raja Sen said,” Sanon performs more consistently and has remarkably assured body language”
