Critics Reviews for Staying Alive

What's Good: The performances; a few light-hearted scenes; the sensitivity with which the subject has been handled. What's Bad: The screenplay which leaves a lot to be desired; the leisurely pace of the narrative; the boring first few reels. Verdict: Staying Alive is a sensitive film but it will find the going tough. Loo break: A couple in the first few reels. Watch or Not?: Watch it because it is a well-intentioned effort.
Critic Score: 1/5

Some of you may have, but most others take for granted the little joys hidden in the faces of family and friends. Writer/director Ananth Mahadevan (remember Shah Rukh Khan's timid father in Baazigar?) brings to the table a poignant tale in Staying Alive, that seeks answers to these questions. The uncomfortable questions are only momentary.The pace of Staying Alive is conducive to send anyone into deep slumber.Skip this sappy drama. It's not the best way to spend your weekend.
Critic Score: 2/5
