So-So by Amodini, Amodini's Movie Reviews ...It reminded me of an older genre of movies, of a thoughtful, sedate style of film, albeit extremely stretched. It’s fairly clean, with some very well shot scenes and songs.... full review

Thumbs up by Aly Kassam, Bolly Spice ...The fact that Gowariker is able to masterfully integrate each of her characters into the film is Raashee's biggest strength. Alas, like all his films, the running time is seriously trying on the audience who begins to feel their legs going numb after the third hour.... full review

So-So by Suranjana Nandi, Buzz18 ...And Priyanka puts life to each and every one of them. ... full review

So-So desi hits ...What stretches it is the content within the screenplay; it's dry and the entire plot remains thin... full review

Thumbs down by Udita Jhunjhunwala, DNA ...Only the pretty, glam girls appeal to Yogesh, which makes his interaction with each suitor even more unrewarding, shallow and unfunny.... full review

Thumbs up by Deepa Garimella, fullhyd.com ...The wit is smart and subtle. Then, there are a couple of glimpses of Gowariker's pet topics - a little rural stint, and a very angry rant on NRIs.... full review

Thumbs down by Mayank Shekhar, Hindustan Times ...You may be driven to appreciate Chopra’s performances. Yet, she merely has to caricature her humourless parts; never add any depth to her roles... full review

Thumbs down by Kaveree Bamzai, india today ...But Gowariker tries too hard to wring the last drop of romance out of every situation.... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, IndiaFM ...has some wonderful moments and award-worthy performance[s] by Priyanka Chopra, but everything pales into insignificance when the written material is weak. ... full review

Thumbs down by Gaurav Malani, indiatimes ...There are dollops of humour in the writing and Hurman’s perfect timing complements the antics of Priyanka’s characters... full review

Thumbs down Indicine ...But what unfolds in the last 20 odd minutes has to be one of the most stupid and unconvincing climaxes ever.... full review

Thumbs down by Sanjukta Sharma, Live Mint ...It is solely Priyanka Chopra who carries off this bizarre hodgepodge of a film... full review

Thumbs up by Vatsal Rathod, Mota Blog ...Actually its a funny take on the believers in horoscope, situation of dowry, blind rush for NRI grooms and many more things... full review

Thumbs up Movie Talkies ...Priyanka through the smallest nuances and behavioural traits ensures that even in such short screen time, each girl has a well defined overall personality and that each girl is independent of the other... full review

Thumbs up by Darshit, Movies Music and Me ...I liked it for the narration of all Raashee one by one.... full review

Thumbs down by Anupama Chopra, NDTV ... Making riveting cinema out of 12 similar encounters is a Herculean task for any director. But perhaps even more so for Ashutosh Gowarikar whose strengths as a storyteller seem more suited to 70 mm epics than romantic comedy... full review

Thumbs up by Subhash K Jha, Now Running.com ...Some of the supporting characters - too broadly parochial to match the narrative's mellow mood - needed to be toned down... full review

Thumbs down by Ashok Nayak, Now Running.com ... WYR has its moments but the story, although innovative and interesting, isn't suited for a big screen adaptation... full review

Thumbs down by Aditya Mani Jha, Passion for Cinema ...Harman Baweja mostly sleepwalks through the film, but manages to look better than he actually is... full review

So-So by Irene Nexica, Planet Bollywood ...with the exception of a couple of cringeworthy film moments, for the most part the film is neither exciting nor dramatic... full review

Thumbs down by Hanumant Bhansali, Radio Sargam ...As much as the movie appears to be interesting on paper, it equally disappoints on screen... full review

Thumbs down real bollywoood ...The story becomes so predictable in the second half that you wait for the movie to get over and start counting how many signs are still left... full review

So-So by Sukanya Verma, Rediff ...A terrific ensemble cast from the world of television and theatre collaborate to its feel-good believability which lasts as long as their screen time.... full review

Thumbs down by Critic's I-view, SmasHits.com ...like a plate full of different kinds of sweets served during the Durga Puja festiveal. You want to eat each one of them because they look yummy, but once you start eating them you realize that there is not much difference in one from another. ... full review

Thumbs down by Janhvi Patel, StarBoxOffice ...Harman Baweja springs a pleasant surprise. It is as much his movie as it is Priyanka’s. He looks good, is lean and fit, and is a decent, expressive actor.... full review

Thumbs down by Avijit Ghosh, Times of India ...The movie's first hour is also its most entertaining. Not that the movie degenerates thereafter, it merely gets repetitive and wears you down. ... full review

Thumbs down by Sakshi Juneja, To Each Its Own ...Wow I thought only YSR guys did this. But looks like Ashu too believes in recyling. The doctor chick plot is mini Swades... full review
