New York Post
Prasad has a hard time keeping her bulging narrative straight; the twitchy editing, jarring close-ups and bobbing camera only muddle the audience. Full Review
Chuck Bowen
Slant Magazine
Fifteen minutes into Festival of Lights you come to the discouraging realization that you know every infuriating plot beat that will follow. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
A novel cultural focus, highlighting Guyanese citizens of Indian ancestry, isn't enough to sustain interest in the lifeless film, which will attract few outside the Indo-Guyanese community. Full Review
Neil Genzlinger
The New York Times
It ends up being largely just another story about a rebellious American teenager. Full Review
Nick Schager
Village Voice
Little girls never stop loving their daddies in Festival of Lights, a drama that never stops loving soap-opera-style melodramatics. Full Review
