Times of India
: Ummer Mohammed's 'Radio' sets about to redefine the concept of virginity and certain accepted norms of morality. Ineya and Sarayu play two salesgirls, one looking weak and vulnerable, the other just the reverse.
: While dealing with such sober issues, Ummer Mohammed makes his intentions a bit too plain. There is earnestness about the way he presents his characters - a young and handsome pimp, a slut, an illlusive psychiatrist and so on. However, an element of subtlety would have made the film much better than it actually turns out to be.
There are scenes where a girl who became a slut for the sake of her family justifies herself, saying that while men feel free to be disloyal, the women might as well do it or she believes that a woman should be bothered about fidelity only after her marriage. In the next moment, she wails about her dirty past as she falls for a noble man. She is scared about her own past and she yearns to escape it. Such sequences appear clumsy and at times artificial, for they look nothing more than a self-lacerating, prolonged wail of confused souls.
The title of the film is related to a cobbler, who clings on to an old radio that never works. The purpose of the man holding on to his radio is never explained and it ends up as an incoherent metaphor. Ineya and Sarayu give creditable performances. It is just that the script is too weak to accommodate what they add to the entire movie.
