Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks ...In all TOTAL SIYAPAA is a big letdown, particularly when it is coming from Neeraj Pandey and I was really surprised that its entire screenplay was not re-written but just adapted as it is from its Spanish original without putting in any serious thought, resulting in such a mediocre product... full review

Thumbs down by Aashi Gahlot, Bolly Spice ...Total Siyapaa does not work as emotional intelligence seems completely missing from the awkwardly racist threats and jokes.... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...TOTAL SIYAPAA appeals in bits and spurts. You expect a laugh-riot, but what comes across on screen is half-baked. ... full review

Thumbs down by Namrata Thakker, Bollywood Life ...Ali Zafar as the hapless Pakistani boyfriend is tolerable. Though his act was impressive in Tere Bin Laden and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, this time the singer-actor’s comic timing does not hit the bullseye. Yami Gautam is not even tolerable.... full review

Thumbs down by Teena Elizabeth, BookmyShow ...If you are a fan of Ali Zafar, Yami Gautam and the Khers (specifically Kirron Kher) you can watch this one. Also, London has been captured beautifully on camera. If you have to settle scores with someone, please recommend Total Siyapaa ... full review

Thumbs down Daily Bhaskar ...Ali Zafar and Yami Gautam’s acting is neither impressive nor bad.... full review

Thumbs down Deccan Chronicle ...Total Siyappa' has been getting a thumbs down from moviegoers with many complaining of a weak plot.... full review

So-So by Smita Vyas Kumar, Desi Martini ...The movie is funny in parts which is less than what a true blue comedy should aspire for. Kirron Kher is worth watching. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mohit Patil, Desi Martini ...Occasionally fun, but uneven and confused. And such poised political commentary is a rarity for Bollywood.... full review

So-So by aneela zeb babar, Desi Martini ...Buy the DVD. Palat Meri Jaan indeed. But from lining up for the tickets.... full review

Thumbs down by SOMESH SINHA, Desi Martini ...A damp squib which will bore the viewers to death. ... full review

Thumbs down by Tushar Joshi, DNA ...A wasted opportunity, Total Siyapaa never goes beyond the ordinary and expected. ... full review

Thumbs down by Deepanjana Pal, FirstPost ...Part of the problem with Total Siyapaa is that Neeraj Pandey's adaptation is singularly dull, but also, Pandey and the filmmakers are desperate to play it safe Read more at: full review

So-So by Martin D'Souza, ...TOTAL SIYAPAA is different, and palatable!... full review

Thumbs down by Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times ...The promos are actually the best thing about Total Siyapaa. You should certainly skip this one... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...I'm going with two out of five for Total Siyapaa. Funny, but in a pedestrian sort of way. ... full review

Thumbs down by Suhani Singh, india today ...Total Siyappa comes across as a poor attempt to marry the films Guess Who's Coming to Dinner and Meet the Parents.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Poor Anupam Kher, getting to play opposite his real-life wife as reel spouse, comes off so embarrassingly, he should wipe this film off his list: I would, if I were made to wander about London in my long johns in a daze.... full review

Thumbs down Indicine ...Due to the clash of 3 films this Friday, Total Siyappa has taken a below average opening, but the film could grow from that because couples are likely to catch this film. Unfortunately, due to its content, it won’t make much of a headway at the box office... full review

Thumbs down by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...Total Siyapaa is audaciously maddening. Even the slight magic that the story might have had gets butchered in the screenplay.... full review

Thumbs down by Shakti Shetty, MiD DAY ...Despite being a romantic comedy, there's hardly any romance in the film, and there isn't much comedy either. ... full review

Thumbs down by Joginder Tuteja, Movie Talkies ...with an international setting not quite impressing much either, one wonders what would Bollywood be offering in weeks to come with some original and some not-so-original ideas all set to be unveiled on screen. ... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Well expecting a dum in this boring and bland film is the biggest joke connected to this film. A good concept by Neeraj Pandey gets super wasted with overdose of hamming actors and unwanted scenes making this Indo-Pak love story seem like a product of international boredom.... full review

Thumbs down Mumbai Mirror ...Even the technical departments seem to have given up Asha (hope), because London's dark streets resemble the backlanes of Ahmedabad. Rare exterior shots are grainy and underlit, and the opening aerial shots of the city are 'handicam' on the scale of 0 to digital. ... full review

Thumbs up by Subhash K. Jha, NDTV ...Total Siyapaa is total madness. An audacious comedy that dares to poke fun at a border issue, the film is stylised and is attentively staged.... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...Total Siyappa is a lesson in knowing that merely seeking inspiration from international films isn't enough one still has to work on the script to make it palatable. A complete waste of a good plot. ... full review

Thumbs down by Sukanya Verma., Rediff ...Establishing characters in stories, coursing through a span of few hours or a day, is not possible without sharp, insightful writing. And Total faux pas does not deliver any... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...Usually the Indo-Pak issue is dealt with seriousness and jingoistic patriotism in our films. Here, it’s refreshing that the issue has been attempted from a romantic and humorous angle. One wishes the film was as fun, as the concept. Now, that would be something. ... full review

Thumbs down by Janhavi Samant, Star Blockbuster ...It takes a really special kind of film to make Anupam Kher look ham. Total Siyappa is that film. Easily avoidable. - See more at: full review

So-So by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...Like a cold, cloudy morning in London, this one leaves you with more gloom than glee. ... full review
