Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is a decent entertainer and works because of the novel idea of forced marriages, performances and hilarious and witty dialogues.

    Critic rating (?)

  • The film is a romantic comedy with a fair share of humour and a dash of romance. As a whole, Jabariya Jodi is a feel-good film; a movie worth watching once.

  • ...starts on a promising note, but loses steam along the way. It tries to throw light on serious issues with lighter moments, but gets tangled in a melodramatic and unrealistic narrative that doesn’t feel all that jabardust.

  • ...while Jabariya Jodi is saying all the right things, it falters in the execution. Better attention to detail would really have made a wealth of difference for the film.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is not as much a romantic comedy as it is the story of a boy trying to come out of his father’s unsavoury shadow. But the need for a rom-com climax ruins whatever little it had tried to gain in the first two hours.

  • The redemption then for Jabariya Jodi is fleeting and in spurts. Thanks to a cracking supporting cast, the film isn’t entirely an oppressive watch.

    Critic rating (?)

  • That this film sways violently between a light-hearted comedy and one that depicts a serious and very real concern, left the makers on the cusp of a disaster.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is over-plotted – characters keep getting married, kidnapped, nearly married and separated. Folks slap each other, which counts as humor. And the narrative swings wildly like there is no one steering it.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...constantly confuses tacky as terrific.  

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...all it manages to be is another proof that good films are made from good screenplays, not a producer's false idea of a winning lead pair.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...this dramedy on groom kidnapping ends as such a tragedy.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a predictably clumsy and dispensable 144-minute film that collapses while attempting to figure out what genre to adopt!

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The humour is as forced as the romance, and the biggest question goes unanswered: what is the movie really trying to say?

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Director Prashant Singh’s treatment of an important subject that is begging to be turned into a social satire bursting with local flavour, leaves the film stranded with an identity crisis.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is a frustrating and excruciatingly painful watch, peppered with very few moments worth remembering.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Hindi cinema needs to get real about getting real. It is exploitative to borrow a milieu and short-change its people. Such meanness belongs in politics, not art.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • It’s been a year of offensively bad films – PM Narendra Modi, Thackeray, Kesari. But anger and disgust will keep you awake, which is more than I can say for Jabariya Jodi.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • As the film goes along, confusion gets confounded. Is this a well-meaning social drama, a rom-com, or an actioner?

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a film that appears to have been made under duress by a group of people playing blind man's buff, is a big splotch of utter nonsense.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...it is dull dull dull.
