The Chicago 7 test has also garnered positive reviews. Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta gave it 4 stars. She wrote, “The joy of watching such a beautifully written film is less than sorkin to everyone. Everything feels of the time. The lines are sharp, laced with humor and the right places, pathos. And the ensemble cast is perfect ., Not a single foot was set wrong in the recreation of the historic event in which concerted efforts by the state to quash counter-culture pushback were met with failure. The performances are all very good, especially Rylance as a lawyer Just knows. Buttons to push, Cohen as the man who keeps pushing them, and Langella, the old-fashioned legislator who mixes his courtroom with disdain and dislike, contempt. Hand them over like charges. “
He said, “And Keaton, who is there for a few minutes, makes his presence felt. A film with most men who are talking (it would largely fail the Bechdel test; it only has two women, And they are completely dispensable. To each other, yet brilliant, because it is a true story of the seven men who have long drawn up the trial, and what the effect of the trial means. “
