According to a report of Hindustan Times “Newton is one of the finest political satires we have seen in the last couple of years. It refrains from taking sides and offers a humorous take on state versus the Maoists bloody battle.” “It is a really honest film and we are already getting an overwhelming response. We will put all our energies to take the film forward,” Rajkummar told news agencies.
