Saina is the sole Bollywood movie releasing in theatres this well, and in case you're in two minds whether to watch it or not, then we're here to make your life easier. Reviews are already in a day prior to the Parineeti Chopra hitting screen worldwide and since BollywoodLife couldn't officially review the film (a rare instance on account of us being preoccupied with this), we've skimmed through what our fellow critics are saying about the Amole Gupte directorial, and the consensus is that Bollywood has come up with a biopic after long that deserves to be watched on the big screen, with Parineeti Chopra finally shining in a project worthy of her talent.

Critics like RJ Divya Solgama, Vishal Verma, Bhavikk Sangghvi, gave Saina 4 out of 5 stars, with the former hailing the biopic as “delightfully engaging”. Vishal described it as “smashingly performed, emotional and uplifting” while the latter wrote: “There are heroes, there are superheroes and then, there's 'SAINA'. A 'smash' hit!” On the other hand, Siddharth Kannan and Nishant Bhuse went further, giving the Saina Nehwal biopic 4.5 out of 5 stars and writing respectively: “Saina is not a film, it's an emotion, a movement”, and “A simple film that will touch your heart and take a bow, Parineeti”.
Several other renowned critics like Bahrthi Pradhan, Prashant Sisodia, Renuka Vyavahare and others gave Saina 3.5 out of 5 stars. The first called the film “The triumph of Saina Nehwal”, and Renuka highlighted its “simple ode to eternal optimism. Meanwhile, Prashant lavished praise on Amole Gupte's direction and Parineeti Chopra's performance writing: “Amole played his shot well and Parineeti flies high on the film's court.”
So, there you have it. The verdict is in and Saina definitely looks like it merits a trip to the theatre.
