Ajab Gazabb Love - External Reviews

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

True to its name, Ajab Gazabb Love show cases an amazingly weird (not in a good way) love story which is juvenile, regressive and mocks at poverty when the attempt, I assume was to sensitize.

So-So by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com ...Jackyy is surely improving with each new film of his and in AGL he takes one step further looking better.... full review

Thumbs down by Priya Sharma, Bolly Spice ...Music doesn’t add to AGL’s appeal mostly because they’re slotted in an almost too formulistic way. ... full review

So-So by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ... To give the credit where it's due, Gadhvi gets the grammar of an entertainer right... full review

Thumbs down by Reza Noorani, Bollywood Life ...the only improvement in Jackky Bhagnani from last year’s F.A.L.T.U. is the super toned abs that he flashes for at least 30 percent of his screen time and 90 percent of the time that he is dancing. ... full review

So-So by Kanika Rajani, BookmyShow ... the film has a message which takes it from a 2 star to a 2.5 rating, catch it only IF glossy entertainers are your cuppa tea.... full review

Thumbs down by Kshitij, Desi Martini ...This movie is a complete Jacky show, which isnt necessarily the best thing. He is decent but the screenplay doesn't quite hold up.... full review

Thumbs down by Rony D'Costa, Desi Martini ...it is bland and boring and the only time I found myself smiling a bit was when Arshad Warsi made a guest appearance.... full review

Thumbs down by Kanika Sikka, DNA ...Nidhi looks glamorous and innocent at the same time. She does justice to her role in parts where she is not trying too hard to impress... full review

Thumbs up by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare ...it’s Kirron Kher, Arjun Rampal and Arshad Warsi’s characters that breakthrough and how. Their individual efforts drive the film and make it entertaining.... full review

Thumbs down by Troy Ribeiro, FirstPost ...“Ajab Gazabb Love” has its hilarious moments but on the whole, the plot is on an even keel.... full review

Thumbs down Free Press Journal ...eep your high-octane expectations at bay. This one is just a sappy, sorry rom-com that is no different from the numerous shoddy attempts at the same genre.... full review

Thumbs down by Ravi Kandala, fullhyd.com ...The basic premise of the movie lends itself to some great comic situations, but the director clearly did not say "Cut" enough, as most scenes go on for way too long.... full review

Thumbs up by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...Nidhi Subbaiah is the right fit for Jackky. Sweet, innocent, a girl with a heart of gold, she portrays the character convincingly making you fall in love with her. A confident performance. ... full review

So-So by Divya Solgama, Gomolo.in ...Jackky Bhagnani does a decent job, but at places fails too. Nidhi Subbaiah looks cute, but is handicapped by her half-baked character-sketch., as there are no explanations given for her prejudice about the rich and poor.... full review

Thumbs down by Suprateek Chatterjee, Hindustan Times ... it’s hard to find too much fault with a movie like this. Ajab Gazabb Love is no Chakravyuh; its ambitions are no loftier than to cater to an audience looking for a familiarly fluffy story.... full review

Thumbs down by Alisha Coelho, In.com ...a movie that missed the bus to the 21st century... full review

Thumbs down by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Entertainment ...a tepid and half-hearted tamasha.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Bhagnani’s previous outing in ‘Faltu’, also produced by papa Vashu, was tolerable, because he was shrewd enough to not take himself seriously. Here he loses no time to get into the buff hero mode, and give himself songs-and-dances with his leading lady, and heavy emotional bits with family:... full review

Thumbs down by Nayandeep, koimoi ...he one who walks away with the cake is definitely our adorable K-k-k-k-k-k-Kirron Kher ji! She excels as the over the top mother and makes her strong screen presence felt every time she lights up the frame.... full review

Thumbs down by Shakti Shetty, MiD DAY ...The few highs of the film happen solely thanks to Kirron Kher and Arshad Warsi’s ridiculous yet engaging comic acts.... full review

So-So Movie Talkies ...Though the film has quite a few funny moments, the overall film is not so great…worth a watch, though…... full review

Thumbs up by Aakash Barvalia, MoviezADDA ...Music given by Sajid-Wajid here is a winner. However all the songs were just filler and doesn't help a bit in narration, it therefore only adds the overall entertainment value in the film.... full review

So-So by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...Making the film thoroughly mundane by interval point are run-of-the-mill songs with dozens of bikini-clad bodies aboard yachts in the Italian Riviera; ... full review

So-So by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com ...The entire film is almost like a give away with the extreme predictability making you guess the story even before it unfurls in front of you.... full review

Thumbs down by Ankur Pathak, Rediff ...reminiscent of the bad films of the bad 1990s... full review

So-So by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...Right from using a melodramatic 80s background score while showcasing melodrama to dramatic tone in aggression or even the simple Chinese tune during a sequences that had Chinese people in it, the background score adds ample humour to an already funny sequence.... full review

So-So by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...The story (a remake of Telugu hit 'Seema Tapakai') is mounted on a weak idea, with paucity of funny moments and well-written scenes.... full review

So-So by Rahul Desai, Upper Stall ...Fortunately for Jackky, he is overshadowed by an experienced cast and crew who have clearly decided to let their hair loose.... full review

Thumbs down by Ananya Bhattacharya, ZEENEWS.COM ...The music by Sajid-Wajid is nothing above average; but will sure rule the music charts for a while before sinking into oblivion.... full review
