Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...On the whole, WAR CHHOD NA YAAR is an interesting idea, coupled with noble intentions, but is treated amateurishly. ... full review

So-So by IANS, Bollywood Life ...Warm and well-packaged with intelligent performances, War Chhod Na Yaar flounders when it abandons the human aspect to get into the nuclear zone. Then it’s time to groan.... full review

So-So by Neha Pinto , BookmyShow ...India's first war-comedy that manages to fall in the 'not bad' and 'can watch once' category. ... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Gahlot, cinemaah ...No noteworthy performance, except for Jaaved Jafferi trying to do his bit dutifully. Tacky in every way, this one’s headed straight to the home viewing rack.... full review

So-So Daily Bhaskar ... It gives a strong message with a twist of comedy. ... full review

Thumbs down by Suparna Sharma , Deccan Chronicle ...War Chhod Na Yaar' is the second film in two weeks with Jaaved Jaaferi. I for one am thrilled to welcome him back on the big screen. Comedy comes naturally to him, and he can carry off nonsense better than most actors in Bollywood. ... full review

So-So by Aneela Zeb Babar, Desi Martini ... Even though the movie descends to stringing along a series of punch lines and sit com gags, it doesn’t exasperate you... full review

Thumbs down by Mohit Patil, Desi Martini ...Not so much a satire on war as broad farce meets tendencies to dispatch heavy-handed social messages. ... full review

So-So by Simantini Dey , FirstPost ...However, if you have the patience to endure that last bit, the other 100 minutes of the film are actually very enjoyable... full review

Thumbs down by Johnson Thomas, Free Press Journal ...Most of what is shown in the form of entertainment is tasteless and uncharitable to the valiant on both sides of the border... full review

So-So by Swayamsrestha Kar, fullhyd.com ... We cannot overlook the lack-lustre dialogues, the half-hearted handling, the rampant stereotypes, and most of all, the fact that even after all these years, we make fun of the Punjabi language by articulating it with the holy mannerisms of Navjot Singh Sidhu. Not cool. Not cool at all. ... full review

So-So by Martin D'Souza, Glamsham.com ...t is not exceptional cinema but just for the concept and the funny take on a serious issue, I rate it three stars. It at least makes you ask a few questions to yourself. Worth a watch! ... full review

So-So by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...War Chhod Na Yaar succeeds in treating a grim subject with a light hand. Sharman Joshi and Javed Jaffrey are in good form, but the script loses steam well before the finish line... full review

Thumbs up by neharika, India Entertainment ... A feel good weekend watch... full review

So-So by Faheem Ruhani, india today ... War Chhod Na Yaar is not a ha ha fest but it makes you laugh at places and it has an important message. Had it made us laugh at many more points in the film we would have said picture zaroor dekhna yaar ... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Two of Bollywood's better actors, Sharman Joshi and Jaaved Jaffrey, face off across a long stretch of barbed wire.... full review

So-So by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...War Chhod Na Yaar is a humorously enchanting film that will trap you interestingly!... full review

Thumbs down by Shakti Shetty, MiD DAY ...In hindsight, the intention and the much-needed message behind this project is praiseworthy but the execution meanders way too much... full review

Thumbs down by Jaidev Hemmady, Movie Talkies ...This ‘war’ is totally avoidable...... full review

Thumbs down by Aakash Barvalia, MoviezADDA ...'War Chhod Na Yaar' had some potential to deliver a good light-heart entertaining movie, but alas, one would definitely say after watching it as, 'Film... Chhod Na Yaar'!... full review

So-So by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...War Chhod Na Yaar would've been a considerably better film if it were more balanced. ... full review

So-So by Subhash K. Jha, NDTV ...The film has a vast cast of comic performers. But I must make special mention of Mukul Dev as an Afghani infiltrator, who gets it wrong each time. Mukul's accent and comic timing are fodder for the funny bones.... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi , Now Running.com ...War Chhod Na Yaar is a highly unfunny war comedy and hence devoid of any reason... full review

So-So by Nishi Tiwari, Rediff ...The first half of War Chhod Na Yaar has the pitch-perfect tone of a war comedy with some real gems that bind the narrative... full review

So-So by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ... It certainly is a film that makes you both laugh and think.... full review

Thumbs down Star Blockbuster ... A brave attempt on a grave subject loses its way in the desert sands like the trio of infiltrators and you end up feeling like a bakri or rather a bakra. Baaaaa! - See more at: http://starblockbuster.com/movie-review-war-chhod-na-yaar#sthash.VTGRYeJN.dpuf... full review

So-So by SUDHISH KAMATH, The Hindu ...This silly, simplistic and conveniently resolved war comedy will make you smile a few times ... full review
