Overall Word of Mouth (Critics) – Mixed

1. Indian Express 

Rating Score -> 2.5/5

Rani Mukerji tries too hard when less could’ve been more. The film with a story as deeply emotional as this needed less melodrama and more contemplative moments.

2. Hindustan Times 

Rating Score -> n/a

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway remains a true-to-heart account of a gut-wreching story of a mother but there are so many layers you wish the director dug deeper and explored with the main character. Nevertheless, I was surprised in the end that such a strong and moving story waited for over a decade to be made into a film. Watch it for a brilliant performance from Rani and keep a box of tissue handy for there are plenty tear-jerking moments.

Rating Score -> 3/5

A heart-breaking mother-child story marred by high-pitched execution

4. India Today 

Rating Score -> 3.5/5

Ashima Chibber, who has also written the story, handles the sensitive issue with care. However, by the end, the film feels a bit stretched. The courtroom drama in the end infuses some life into the film. The music is one of the best things about it, and do not miss Rani Mukerji’s song as the credits roll. Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is not a light watch, but something that is compelling and emotional.

5. News 18 

Rating Score -> 3/5

Mrs Chatterjee VS Norway tries to tell an inspiring and tear-jerking tale of the fearless and resilient Sagarika Bhattacharya but its ham-fisted and bumpy treatment stops it from becoming one.

6. Rediff 

Rating Score -> 2/5

Instead of feeling her desperation, despair or extreme acts stemming from a mother’s primal need to protect her brood, what comes through is hollow theatrics

7. The Hindu 

Rating Score -> n/a

Rani Mukerji excels as a flawed but feisty mother in this clash of cultures. A tremendous actor, Rani has not been able to tone down the melodramatic instincts of her pre-OTT performances but as the narrative progresses, she gets the pulse of her character right

8. NDTV 

Rating Score -> 1.5/5

Rani Mukerji Lets It Rip And The Film Trips On Its Excesses. An overheated affair that sucks the air out of an intrinsically moving story.

9. Gulf News 

Rating Score -> 2.5/5

Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway’ starring Rani Mukerji is a lot of wasted potential. Rani Mukerji is a raging bull of a mother in this loud drama about child custody and woes

10. Khaleej Times 

Rating Score -> 3/5

But what ultimately works for Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway is that this heart-wrenching story of a mother who goes on a rampage to win back her children is not a figment of some Bollywood screen writer’s vivid imagination.
