Rajkummar Rao, who is elated with Newton's entry to the Best Foreign Film category at the Oscars, told news agency PTI that he hopes that film brings him 'international recognition.' "I think I am doing something different every time and I want to grow with every film. I hope with Newton, I get more international recognition," PTI quoted the 33-year-old actor as saying. "It is one of the most important films of my career. It was made with a lot of honesty," he added.
In his review for NDTV, film critic Raja Sen wrote that Rajkummar Rao and Pankaj Tripathi provide 'terrific performances' in Newton.
"Amit Masurkar's Newton is a dry and intriguing look at an India we don't usually see - and shows us how hard it is to take elections seriously," wrote Mr Sen.
Rajkummar Rao's Newton was also reviewed by superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who wrote that the film is 'an eye opener on many aspects.'
