The critical consensus

With more drama to be found in an episode of MasterChef, it’s an insipid conclusion to a journey that had promise.

***(*)(*)James Mottram, The List, 01/09/2014

Cliche piles on cliche, but it's good-natured, undemanding fun.

***(*)(*)Michael Hann, The Guardian, 04/09/2014

You can tell where all of this might be headed but that doesn’t detract from the pleasure of a warmhearted, fairytale drama that doesn’t need to be taken too seriously.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 05/09/2014

Puri is great fun as the indomitable head of the family, and Mirren convinces as the grand dame, despite dishing out her lines in an accent that staunchly refuses to set.

***(*)(*)Mark Kermode, The Observer, 07/09/2014

The charm of the early scenes is undermined by the mushiness and predictability with which the rest of the film unfolds.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 05/09/2014

Lasse Hallström delivers another typically handsome but hollow adaptation of a middlebrow novel for the delectation of audiences who just want a bit of undemanding escapism.
