quick review:

Philosophizes a little too much with little insight. And I wonder where we have seen the story earlier? Hmmmm...

So-So by Subhash K Jha, Bolly Spice ...This one has more than its fair share of flaws. But it isn’t unwatchable. The film’s high aesthetic qualities make sure of that. ... full review

Thumbs up Bollywood Hungama ...The film's cinematography (Ewan Mulligan) is top-notch. The way in which he has presented the film and shot the locations are extremely top-notch and exemplary. On the other hand, the film’s editing (Farooq Hundekar) could have been tighter. ... full review

Thumbs down by Rajat Tripathi, Bollywood Life ...Tum Bin is a shiny bright red balloon that is floating upwards towards a pointed needle... full review

Thumbs down by Aditi Santhmayer, BookmyShow ...If you are sucker for romantic movies and do not mind shedding a tear or two, Tum Bin 2 is exactly what you should be watching this weekend. ... full review

Thumbs down by Rohit Bhatnagar, Deccan Chronicle ...Rohit Bhatnagar... full review

So-So by Bryan Durham, DNA ...What to do: The first half kinda builds you up while the meandering second half brings you down with its inordinate length. Closure comes a little too late. A shorter runtime and fewer songs might have made this a better experience. But still not as good as the first film.... full review

So-So by Rachit Gupta, Filmfare ...Tum Bin 2 is Anubhav Sinha’s rehash of his first film for the new audience. Millennials who’ve grown up with romances like The Notebook or the current crop of tweens and teens who enjoy movies like The Fault In Our Stars or Aashiqui 2 will have lots of meat in this light but breezy romantic saga. ... full review

Thumbs down by UDITA JHUNJHUNWALA', FirstPost ...Unlike the musical success of its predecessor, Ankit Tiwari and Nikhil-Vinay’s soundtrack does not deliver any memorable songs. What you do notice are the swells in the background music to heighten the emotional peaks, and if that doesn’t move you, perhaps the copious tears shed by Neha Sharma will.... full review

So-So by Johnson Thomas, Free Press Journal ...The songs are hummable at least, the cinematography is a lure but the melodramatic treatment and the overwhelming background score makes the experience quite a tedious one. Performances go over-the-top to stage-manage affect. ... full review

So-So by Vishal Verma, Glamsham.com ...Seasoned performer Kanwaljit Singh is fantastic. Sandali Sinha - the lead actress from the original appears for a one scene cameo and looks good. ... full review

So-So by Sweta Kaushal, Hindustan Times ...The lead actors are not convincing -- neither in dialogue delivery nor in emoting. Kanwaljeet Singh (who plays a sweet and loving dad) and Meher Vij are the only ones who really get their characters right and warm up your heart with their performances. ... full review

Thumbs down by Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times ...Neha Sharma, who plays the woman inciting this furious devotion, retains a single expression of anguish on her face. Aashim Gulati is even more stilted. The only spark comes from Aditya Seal, who looks appropriately conflicted. ... full review

Thumbs down by Suhani Singh, india today ...Arriving 15 years after the first one, Tum Bin 2 is stale, all-too-familiar, superfluous sequel that never strikes the one place it really should - the heart.... full review

Thumbs down by Surabhi Redkar, koimoi ...Like the film’s dialoge ‘pyaar bewaja hota hai’, this film is also equally ‘bewajah’. Spare yourself from this romantic drama! A 1.5/5 for the film. ... full review

Thumbs down by Mohar Basu , MiD DAY ...In between buckets of melodrama and copious tears, the film drags on falling back on the trappings of the original. Penance and guilt are studied closely all over again. Sinha will want you to believe that relationships are made of marriages and the years you put in them. Could he sell it well? Hardly! ... full review

Thumbs down by Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Talkies ...In other words, Tum Bin 2 is not worth the time and effort… ... full review

So-So by Kunal Guha, Mumbai Mirror ...If you're going through a rough patch in your relationship, opt for this one. It will convince you that you're better off by yourself. ... full review

So-So by Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV ...The audience might not be overly dukhi with Tum Bin 2, especially owing to its commendably sophisticated soundtrack. But this sequel is unlikely to have anybody asking for more. ... full review

Thumbs down by Sameeksha Dandriyal, News18.com ...Overall the film thrives on its emotional quotient and the picturesque locales in Scotland. Since it has nothing new to offer, it comes across as just another mediocre film. Go for it if you are love typical Bollywood romance and cheesy love lessons, otherwise, catch its television premiere on a good lazy afternoon. ... full review

Thumbs down by Manisha Lakhe, Now Running.com ...The moment Boy1 comes back from the dead, the movie just turns into a farce. There is no tragedy like Sangam (Raj Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar and Vyjayantimala) no soul like Saajan (where Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt both love Madhuri Dixit). This movie is plain comical. Each boy jealous of the other and the girl staring at both open mouthed. You begin hoping the movie would have the two lads flying away into the sunset leaving the silly Girl alone. ... full review

Thumbs down by Sukanya Verma, Rediff ...Tum Bin II's out-dated twists, needless complications and comical confusion over the sacrificial lamb prolongs the rona dhona by a good half an hour and still cannot settle who loves whom or if at all. ... full review

Thumbs down by Namrata Joshi, The Hindu ...Taranjeet’s two Kaur sisters had potential to be quite a riot, but they get hemmed in. The pick of the picture is Kanwaljit Singh, ever so dignified as the gentle patriarch. And then there are Jagjit Singh and Rekha Bhardwaj singing ‘Teri Fariyaad’. But then you are much better off listening to the two on your own music system than on the big screen. ... full review

Thumbs up by Renuka Vyavahare, Times of India ...Despite the odds, if you like old-fashioned love stories with great music, Tum Bin 2 is a partially heartrending tale that can be watched for its beautiful message and sincere execution. ... full review

Thumbs down ZEENEWS.COM ...Overall, "Tum Bin 2" had the potential of being a love story that could warm the cockles of your heart, but somehow this one does not, despite the strong performances by Aditya Seal and Neha Sharma. ... full review
