"…Deccani Souls offers wonderful in depth symbolism about the complexities of dreams and one's place in the world…"
- Kamila Sych
"Rahman's film tells us that the superimposition is also the tool to depict a midwinter fever-dream or memories - because as memories go, when they rain, it's a downpour. "
- Anuj Malhotra, Floating Zoetropes
"Deccani Souls represents a history of violence and displacement that many Muslim citizens endured in Hyderabad 65 years ago; it also raises many questions about their role in India today- a symbolic return to a place that, for many, was once called home."
- Andres Tapia-Urzua,India - Projectorhead Magazine
"Bringing out the lost culture of the Nawabi City"
- Swati Sharma, Hyderabad, India - The New Indian Express
"A wistful perspective to the feel-good city, the film seeks to bridge the present with the past, to narrate a forgotten story in a surreal format."
- Hyderabad, India - The Hindu
