Critic Reviews for Mogul Mowgli

All Critics (100) | Top Critics (31)

Not every scene fully hits its marks, but Mogul Mowgli is never content to be a standard indie drama.

The audience is thrown into Zed's world (or rather, worlds), and it's Ahmed's astounding performance that provides the through line. It's OK to be lost, because Zed is.

This is an intimate story, sometimes uncomfortably so, but it's also an expansive one, about whether our societies allow people to live outside prescribed boxes and whether it accepts them when they do.

A complex look at identity -- particularly as the son of immigrants... [Riz Ahmed] is at the top of his game.
