Rohit Khilnani from India Today wrote, “Dylan Mohan Gray’s documentary Fire in the Blood is “a shocking expose… A story that needed to be told to the world — **** (4 stars)”
According to noted film critic Rajeev Masand, the documentary is, “A powerful, urgent film. Don’t miss Fire in the Blood. It tells you how YOU can save lives”
Sarit Ray from Hindustan Times says Fire in the Blood is “a sharp wake-up call… as riveting as it is engaging… the perfect vehicle for a powerful message that has been lost” and adds that “an Indian film might make it to the biggest awards stage… in a pill if not a lunchbox — **** (4 stars)”
Zoe Ball from BBC Radio calls it “Brilliant… A real life David and Goliath story.” Legendary film critic Philip French of The Guardian and The Observer pronounces it to be “quietly devastating” and “a testament to human decency”. Calling Fire in the Blood “”indispensable viewing” and a “very smart documentary from India”, David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter says the film is “extremely moving… a powerful documentary that demands to be seen by as wide an audience as possible”.
Amongst India’s leading opinion makers, Barkha Dutt tweeted “A Must Watch: Fire in the Blood @fitbmovie (releasing Friday) – hard-hitting & searing film on how Big Pharma blocked affordable HIV drugs”
The film has won three major international awards in recent months, including the 2013 DOXA Feature Documentary Award at Vancouver and the 2013 Justice Matters Award at the 27th Washington DC International Film Festival. The most recent feather in its cap is winning the first-ever Prize for Political Film at the recently-concluded Filmfest Hamburg in Germany.
