Thumbs up by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...GORI TERE PYAAR MEIN! is a charming and refreshing coming of age film plus rom-com rolled into those 2.25 hours. The film maintains the right balance between amusement, hilarity and engaging moments. Recommended! ... full review

Thumbs up Indicine ...Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is a film that can be watched and enjoyed with family or friends. If you like a feel good love story, like most of us do, go give it a try... full review

Thumbs up by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...While the first half is cheerful and breezy, in direct contrast the second half is grounded and purposeful. The climax disappoints a bit as the screenplay loses its steam and makes it all too simplistic, but even then watch this film because it attempts to talk about things that matter. And for Puneet’s sake. He could have easily chosen the shallow path that he had taken with his debut film... full review

Thumbs up by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...This isn't the most rousing romance (second-half lacks 'rom'), but has its feel-good moments. Chew it up with some 'Chingam' and a cute date. ... full review

So-So by Aparajita Ghosh, Apun Ka Choice ...GTPM promises nothing more than popcorn entertainment. On that count it delivers. ... full review

So-So by Nikhil Arora, Desi Martini ... Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is partly fun but mostly a ridiculous romantic comedy... full review

So-So by Rony D'costa, Desi Martini ...Gori Teri Pyar Mein relies heavily on the lead pair. If you don’t like watching them it is unbearable to sit through.... full review

So-So by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare ...Films like GTPM are best enjoyed without the expectation of cinematic excellence... full review

So-So by FPJ Bureau, Free Press Journal ...film is entirely dependent on the Kareena-Imran chemistry which is palpable but not one that can catch fire altogether. This film is certainly cute but nowhere close to memorable... full review

So-So by Swayamsrestha Kar, fullhyd.com ...While Imran's character has some Rhett Butler-esque moments, it is otherwise a clone of whatever he played in I Hate Luv Storys. Kareena Kapoor, who's got the feisty-passionate-chick act nailed through the wall, proceeds to hammer it in a bit more in her latest venture.... full review

So-So by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times ...The narrative becomes melodramatic and even more synthetic as Punit tries to inject emotion and a sense of nobility that hasn’t been earned. - See more at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/entertainment/reviews/movie-review-by-anupama-chopra-gori-tere-pyaar-mein/article1-1154675.aspx#sthash.J8Vu2QJj.dpuf... full review

So-So by Mridula Roy, In.com ...But all is well at the end. The film's love-birds live happily ever after. Wish the same were true of the fate of rom-com in Bollywood.... full review

So-So by Rohit Khilnani, india today ...This is Punit's second attempt at a rom-com and he gets a few things right and a few wrong, making Gori Tere Pyaar Mein an average entertainer... full review

So-So by Faheem Ruhani, india today ...Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is a good, light-hearted, one time watch. It's breezy and fun for most part.... full review

So-So by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...Punit Malhotra’s GTPM isn’t flawless but it is immensely watchable. The film’s positives easily topples its negatives which is why I recommend you to watch this... full review

So-So by Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Talkies ...If rom-coms are your cup of tea, go for this fare.... full review

So-So by Subhash K. Jha, NDTV ...This is a film that had the potential for being genuinely funny and warm. It also has the very lovely Shradha Kapoor trying hard to keep her inherent grace intact in a script that manoeuvres through a string of antics based on cultural and economic disparity. It squanders the satirical potential in trying to be cleverer than the audience.... full review

So-So by Paloma Sharma, Rediff ...Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’s saving grace is that it is a love story and the second half will manage to melt your heart, if only slightly. It’s the classic opposites attract story and hey, if you’re into that kind of thing, this might be your kind of film... full review

So-So by Rummana Ahmed, yahoo! India ...‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ is an insipid love story dragged down by a flimsy plot that limps on at a tedious pace.... full review

So-So by Resham Sengar, ZEENEWS.COM ...Generally speaking, ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’ is a clean, light hearted and fun film, but don’t go to watch it keeping your expectations too high. If you are sucker for Rom-Coms, especially the Karan Johar variety, and if you have not watched a film in a long while, then chances are you might enjoy it.... full review

Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks Cinema.com ...Anyway, searching for the only silver lining in this black cloud, there are 10 odd minutes of beautiful Shraddha Kapoor in the film, which are watchable. And in case you are too serious to watch her on the screen post AASHIQUI 2, then just see the film at a lower cost ticket before the intermission and simply walk away.... full review

Thumbs down by Githa Vanan, Bolly Spice ...So take it as it is and you might enjoy Punit Malhotra mash up the first half of Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai with a dash of southern stereotypes and Swades into an ‘original’ film. ... full review

Thumbs down by Vinod Talreja, Bollywood Life ...Punit Malhotra cannot direct rom-coms…period. The filmmaker tried to do a Karan Johar in I Hate Luv Storys and almost nailed it, but with Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, he failed miserably.... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Gahlot, cinemaah ...The film is as shallow as the characters accuse each other of being, and worse, it’s boring. ... full review

Thumbs down Daily Bhaskar ... Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor fans are requested to go and watch the film at your own risk... full review

Thumbs down by Ameetbhuvan, Desi Martini ...Trash , glorified trash ... full review

Thumbs down by aneela.zeb.b, Desi Martini ... I REALLY Hate Love Stories (Again) ... full review

Thumbs down by Ravina Rawal, FirstPost ...I wouldn’t insist you hit the theatre if you’ve got other plans for your weekend... full review

Thumbs down by Rajesh Kumar Singh, Glamsham.com ...It is not a significant film and achieves nothing worthwhile cinematically and on various other parameters. It's a wasted effort. ... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...We'd have cared more about this mismatched couple had the makers invested in a sharper script. I am going with a generous two out of five for Gori Tere Pyaar Mein. It's as enjoyable as drinking a cup of tea that's been left out in the cold... full review

Thumbs down by Vinayak Chakravorty, india today ...It is left to Kareena to salvage the show, which she does to an extent. In the end, the burden of a boring script is too overwhelming for her to leave an impact.... full review

Thumbs down by Saurabh Dwivedi, india today ...Watch the movie if you have to, if you like to watch big stars on the big screen. For the rest, skipping this movie would be a wise decision... full review

Thumbs down by Nandini Ramnath, Live Mint ...Gori Tere Pyaar Mein! is proof that this journey is not for everybody.... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Well the movie has fantastic dum in the first half and equally opposite in the second half. The romantic track along with foot tapping music works very well in favor of the film. But the second half is total contrast and fails to connect with the film and its audience due to boring and artificial screenplay. Still this movie is a decent watch and a good entertainer over the home video.Thus, on over all basis would compare this movie with a 'Chewing Gum'; with refreshing taste initially but later on you are left with bland taste only. ... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ... Imran Khan doesn't over think his role as a Bangalore-based Hindi speaking Tam-Bram who finds himself in a Gujarati village for most part (lots of hyphens and adjectives for his character). He's content slipping back into his comfort zone after that last failed experiment, OUATIM Dobara. If that's satisfied you in the past, it will again. And as for Kareena, well there's nothing new for her here unless you'd like to see her lip-sync to Gore gore, nikke nikke, tere mere tooh and let your imagination do the rest... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com ...Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is the weakest offering from Dharma Productions in the longest time and is an easy skip lest you are Imran or Kareena fans ... full review

Thumbs down by Ankit Ojha , Planet Bollywood ...Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, can unfortunately never replicate the goofball charm of I Hate Luv Storys or even the kind of chemistry the leads shared in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu. ... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...With severely cliched characters, a glaring lack of humour for a rom-com, and a muddled love story that does not hold your interest, the only upside to the film is Kareena Kapoor’s crackerjack performance.... full review

Thumbs down by Anuj Kumar, The Hindu ... A love story that hardly tugs at your heartstrings ... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Bali, Upper Stall ...There's nothing to add on the technicalities, which are adequate, nothing more, nothing less. The songs too are just so-so. All in all, the film follows the typical Dharma Productions template - an on-the-surface, superficial and sugar coated designer film and little else really... full review
