Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) - Positive

1. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 3/5
Terrific Kapil Sharma, Shahana Goswami bring forth the dark side of India’s success story. Nandita Das' third directorial is such a powerful mirror to today’s India, which has always grappled with staggering disparities between the haves and have-nots.

2. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
Watch Zwigato to enjoy a slice of life of people whom we don’t credit as much as we should. It might not be a perfect film, but definitely starts a conversation about the flawed system that this service class bears with but still there is very little being done to fix it.

3. Times of India -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
The film unfolds at a lazy pace, which could leave you restless. However, it is worth a watch for its intent and fine performances. Above everything else, what the movie effectively does is leave you with empathy for those who do odd or menial jobs to make our lives simpler. Think about it.

4. NDTV -

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
A Contemporary Portrait Of The Gig Economy And Its Pitfalls. The male protagonist is Manas Mahto (Kapil Sharma cast in a role that one would hardly believe is cut out for him), a food delivery boy who strays into the profession after losing the job of a factory floor supervisor.

5. News 18 -

Rating Score -> 3/5
While the film is sort of a mirror of society, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. The film is shot in art-house style cinematography that not everyone will enjoy. The film also doesn’t really have highs and lows or a big ending, unlike usual Bollywood movies, which might bore people. But nevertheless, I’d suggest, if you enjoy cinema, give Zwigato a shot.

6. Rediff -

Rating Score -> 4/5
Zwigato's real locations, real people and real sounds give a face to this taken-for-granted omnipresence whose key word is 'order' yet the customer deludes itself into believing it's a mutually beneficial exchange where one devours an avocado and another drives off in search of respect and remuneration.

7. Komal Nahta -

Rating Score -> n/a
Nandita Das’ direction is dull. Her narration befits a docu-drama. The film actually looks like a docu-drama on delivery men. On the whole, Zwigato is a non-starter. It will go largely unnoticed.
