Thumbs down by Pashmina Narang, BookmyShow ...His films seem solely character-driven, loosing grip on the pace of the plot, leaving you wondering as to how the drops dead gorgeous go getter Mehek actually could get down to pining for a simpleton like Acharya. At best he seems like a crutch she would certainly depend on but would not be whole-heartedly involved with.... full review

So-So by Angel Rani, Deccan Herald ...Vinay Pathak appears repetitive with his simpleton act, while Neha Dhupia impresses, with clothes or no clothes.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...It’s not that I have difficulty in buying the attraction between these two opposites. Stranger and odder couples have got it on, because, fundamentally, no one knows what does it for two people. But I had trouble keeping myself interested because of the flatness which the film suffers from, despite some nice touches. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...I have watched Vinay Pathak in at least three bad movies this year and in each of them, he plays the na ve simpleton, who is yet to learn the ways of the world.... full review

Thumbs down by Kunal Guha, yahoo! India ...Vinay Pathak has been typecast in the six-seven movies he’s featured in this year. It’s funny when people say that he adds up as the perfect ‘common man’. That would be true if the common man was a world-weary, self-righteous, blabbermouth who was also moralistic and preachy. These attributes may be collectively true for some but can it really be considered as the national average?... full review
