She's a user, he's a loser. In each of the three couples. Thank goodness for some decent lines and situations that make it a decent date film.

So-So by Aparajita Ghosh, Apun Ka Choice engaging satire on love, but the film tends to lose steam mid-way ... full review

So-So by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks ...A mostly enjoyable journey into the women psyche but could have been much better in a shorter version.... full review

Thumbs up by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...PYAAR KA PUNCHNAMA isn't ground-breaking or pioneering cinema, but I have to state, it puts the fun quotient back into the movies due to its unsullied take on relationships, which snowballs into heavy-duty drama as it reaches the finale.... full review

Thumbs up Bollywood Mantra ...totally refreshing cinema... full review

So-So by Malvika Rao, BookmyShow ...Aimed at the migrant pseudo-urban youth, it packs quite a punch when it comes to soothing their ‘bechara’ souls, ravaged by ‘undeserving ‘women.... full review

Thumbs up by Rony D'costa, Desi Martini ...Pyar ka Punchnama is for couples who want to reflect on their relationship... full review

Thumbs down by Ankur Pathak, Desi Martini ...Pyar ka Punchnama tries hard, and thats where it ends.... full review

So-So by Blessy Chettiar, DNA ...The second half seems never-ending, sappy and pleading for sympathy.... full review

Thumbs up by Mihir Fadnavis, DNA ...will make your face hurt with laughter... full review

Thumbs up by Deepa Gahlot, Film Impressions ...Where Luv Ranjan scores is in the simple, colloquial dialogue (lots of bleeped out profanity, though) and the sporadic flashes of wicked humour. He also gets easy-flowing performances from his actors... full review

Thumbs down by Rahul Gangwani, Filmfare ...The saving grace of the film is the performances of the lead actors and the handful of funny moments.... full review

Thumbs up by Deepa Garimella, .... Some of the dialogues are well-written; they're not reams of prose, but quite well-timed and spot on... full review

Thumbs down by Pankaj Sabnani, ...Kartikeya Tiwari is decent. Vikrant delivers a very restrained performance. Divyendu Sharma is excellent.... full review

So-So by Mayank Shekhar, Hindustan Times ...There's no editing of thought, let alone editing out of scenes. Structure, I suppose, could weed out some of the sappiness on the screen.... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...not funny... full review

So-So by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...The writing is unerring when it comes to the lads, but goes off track with the lasses. Their acts are good, but distressingly single-tone.... full review

So-So by Komal Nahta, koimoi for a section of the youth only but that won’t be good enough.... full review

Thumbs up by Bryan Durham, MiD DAY ...Divyendu (Liquid) and Kartikeya (Rajjo aka Rajat) have the best dialogues.... full review

Thumbs up by Subhash K Jha, Now ...delightful rugged romantic-comedy ... full review

Thumbs up by K K Rai, STARDUST ...A good fare. ... full review

Thumbs down by Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India ...appalling gender skew... full review

Thumbs up by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...An immensely watchable film with a few flaws and a fresh (read real) outlook to ‘love ke rulezz’ in this overcooked-sappy-saccharine world of wannabe romcoms, Pyaar ka Punchnama has single-handedly re-instilled faith in the power of corny trailers and misguided marketing. ... full review

Thumbs down by Spicezee Bureau, ZEENEWS.COM ...fails to pack a punch!... full review
