Critic reviews and ratings

  • There is nothing profound about Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara; neither does it bring any insight that you and I don't already have from our own relationships. But, it connects from the word go.

    Critic rating (?)

  • A bromance that has more style and heat than most rubbish romcoms.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...starts on a promising note and keeps getting better every minute.

    79

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...an exhilarating journey, an inspiring experience, a thought rather than a plot that glides with stunning smoothness and celerity.

    79

    Critic rating (?)

  • While entertaining her audiences throughout, the writer-director (Zoya Akhtar, Luck By Chance), with a firm voice of her own, still manages to keep things artistic, without its pretensions; a lot of times, even poetic...

    Critic rating (?)

  • Director Zoya Akhtar follows up Luck By Chance with another sensitive and entertaining study of people, even as she gives Bollywood it's first full blown contemporary road movie.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...has its share of plusses and minuses, highs and lows. It's definitely not for ardent fans of kitsch or those with an appetite for typical masala entertainers. This one's more for spectators with refined tastes and sensibilities.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...enormously entertaining.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • It proves that Zoya Akhtar has a unique, compelling voice and unlike many of her contemporaries, she actually respects that a cinema audience can be both intelligent and mature.

    69

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...does exude pronounced traces of the spirit of Dil Chahta Hai, but its essential rhythm is its own, stemming from the dynamics of a full-fledged road movie shot through with intelligence, emotion and, above all, humanism.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is an experience to be enjoyed only once, not Dobara.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...go catch ZNMD for good performances, music, Spain and of course, Farhan Akhtar in his element.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • Overall the flick is good as it has tried to venture into the new territory of road movie. A good flick.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is thirty minutes too long, predictable, and is nowhere near as good as Zoya Akhtar's debut film. But it is gorgeous looking and has some noteworthy moments...

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • It is enjoyable, funny, great looking and 'clean' as compared to another recent buddy film. The stars all act well-even Katrina Kaif. Add to the mix good music and a couple of graceful dances and the package all bright and shiny tied with a red ribbon. You want more out of movies? Are you nuts?

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • A spectacular film about friendships from a truly talented young director.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • The suggestion that emotional tangles can be unravelled by putting on a diving suit is daffy, but Zoya Akhtar's talent lies in creating rich characters that you're likely to remember afterwards even if you don't recall what they actually ended up doing.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Picture this, Katrina tells Hrithik, "Hume dabbe mein sirf tab hona chahiye, jab hum mar jayein". (We should be in a box only when we're dead). That metaphor doesn't quite apply to Indian sensibilities and that's the case with most of ZNMD. You might just feel a strong disconnect.

    Critic rating (?)

  • A pretty, very pretty film. If only it had more soul.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • This could have been a 'DCH' with a bite; it ends up being a good-looking but bland touristy delight.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Zoya does try desperately to transcend the obvious, to mean the message rather than say it, like say a 'Sideways' or 'Lost in Translation' does. And though she knocks on the door of this transcendence, she is unable to pass through.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...painfully vacuous tourism advert...
