Yet another rom-com. But this time the story and characters touch your heart. Mostly. Ultimately, London Paris New York falls prey to typical drama.

Thumbs up by Prathna Tiwari, Bolly Spice ...he comedy in the film is seriously lacking and is limited to the London portion as the Paris portion is somewhat dark and the New York portion is a concluding segment in which the characters come straight to the point... full review

Thumbs up by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...The languid tempo in the first hour, with the narrative getting a little too verbose and talk-heavy, is a deterrent.... full review

Thumbs up by Aniruddha Guha, DNA ...You may not love it, but chances are you'll find yourself mildly amused and entertained along the 100 minutes it plays out over.... full review

Thumbs up by Nupur Barua, ...What Anu Menon has cleverly done, however (she is also the writer), is the trimming of unnecessary details and peripheral relationships with other people... full review

Thumbs up by Martin D'Souza, ...I have a problem with the beginning and the end. ... full review

Thumbs up by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...What the film has going for it, however, is its breezy vibe, and the crackling chemistry between its leads... full review

Thumbs up by Fatema H Kagalwala, India Entertainment ...It is a sort of film that comes full circle only once it’s over, which makes it all the more interesting. After all, isn’t our take-away from the film what we cherish the most?... full review

Thumbs up by Kaveree Bamzai, india today ...Hydari is a sparkly little thing, totally wasted in Rock Star which would have been a different film if she had been allowed to play the role of Unlucky Lips, Nargis Fakhri.... full review

Thumbs up by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...does a good job in keeping her characters real, rooted and capable of a growth curve. ... full review

Thumbs up by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...While the two central characters don’t really hold your interest individually, they work magic together. You’re instantly drawn to their quaint romance. ... full review

Thumbs up by Sudhish Kamath, The Hindu ...The fact that there's a break for an interval at an awkward point in the film does hurt the Paris story too. But London Paris New York soon finds its own story to tell and builds on the characters established through the first half. ... full review

Thumbs up by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...It is urbane, cool and thankfully, not dated. ... full review

Thumbs up by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...The background score does tend to lead you on in some scenes, especially at their confused reunion in Paris - one of the few flaws of an otherwise-neat character piece. ... full review

Thumbs up by SpiceZee Bureau, ZEENEWS.COM ...She shines remarkably in the film, and pulls off a feat that perhaps only a few would have been able to. Aditi does justice to the role of Lalitha, and paired across Ali, stuns her viewers completely.... full review

So-So by Aparajita Ghosh, Apun Ka Choice ...And it’s these moments that make the movie stand above the somewhat shoddy writing and amateurish direction by the debutante director Anu Menon... full review

So-So by Rony D'costa, Desi Martini ...I have a huge crush on Aditi so for me just watching her on screen made the film work but her character didnt work. If not for Aditi playing Lalitha I would have come out tearing my hair.... full review

So-So by Mehul Suri, Desi Martini ...The screenplay is absurd and most of the dialogues so retarded that you laugh at the idiocy of them. ... full review

So-So by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times ...Hydari has a luminous presence - even as the bua in Delhi-6, she made an impact. But here she seems to be working too hard to get the right mix of fluttering eyelashes, steeliness and vulnerability.... full review

So-So Movie Talkies ...The film suffers primarily because of the way Anu chooses to gloss and skim over her two characters and plot holes.... full review

So-So by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...Über-talented (music, lyrics, singer, lead act) Ali Zafar shows his acting chops as he gets it right in a critical climax scene. ... full review

So-So by Piyali Dasgupta, NDTV ...I missed a story in the film.... full review

So-So by Preeti Arora, Rediff romantic comedy but scores in the cinematography department. ... full review

So-So by K N Gupta, ...The dialogues aren't much to remember. The repeated use of cuss words like 'sex' and 'position' don't gel well and could have been avoided.... full review

Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks ...Many of the youngsters may like it due to the bold dialogues written realistically, its fine performances by Ali-Aditi and its few hummable songs composed & sung by Ali Zafar himself.... full review

Thumbs down Daily Bhaskar ...Lack of story telling takes away the chance from the movie to enter the arena of popcorn films. ... full review

Thumbs down by Ankur Pathak, Desi Martini ...Extremely pretentious besides Terrible.... full review

Thumbs down by Aakanksha Naval Shetye, DNA ...t’s strictly a watch for those few light-hearted moments in between all the city-hopping.... full review

Thumbs down by Blessy Chettiar, DNA ...You know there’s a problem when locations take a life of their own, belittling the effort of characters placed at their feet. ... full review

Thumbs down by Rahul Gangwani, Filmfare ...Director Anu Menon prefers clichés above freshness to give us one more run-of-the-mill romcom.... full review

Thumbs down Free Press Journal ...There is very little humour in the set- ups , and the timing between the two leads is terribly off.... full review

Thumbs down by Komal Nahta, koimoi ...Business rating: 1/5... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty Saha, MiD DAY ...While Ali is lively and easy, Aditi and her character Lalita disappoint with their inconsistency in performance and behaviour respectively. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...a complete mish-mash of rip-offs and clichés... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...The two alone manage to salvage the film from dying a death of monotony.... full review
