Thumbs down by Namrata Thakker, Bollywood Life ...Watch Yaariyan only if you are bored to death. Or if you’re in college and your hormones are driving you crazy. Everyone else should give this one a miss – you will thank us later.... full review

So-So by Tanaya Ramyani, BookmyShow ... A popcorn flick, not worth bunking college though.... full review

Thumbs down Daily Bhaskar ...Only for the teenagers and college goers who wouldn't mind some timepass this weekend. ‘NO’ for everyone else... full review

Thumbs down by Suparna Sharma, Deccan Chronicle ...Mrs Divya Khosla Kumar, who even makes an appearance in the end, next to some inanity she thought of about motherhood and film direction, only made this rotten flick even more annoying.... full review

Thumbs down by Aneela Zeb Babar, Desi Martini ... Lovely Songs. Lovelier Deepti Naval. Shame about the terrible terrible movie. ... full review

Thumbs down by Somesh Sinha, Desi Martini ...A ham-fisted affair! Shame on Divya Khosla Kumar! ... full review

Thumbs down by Tushar Joshi, DNA ...Strictly for those who want to enjoy the songs on the big screen, the rest can go revisit Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander the best college campus film of all time!... full review

Thumbs down by Johnson Thomas, Free Press Journal ...Divya Khosla Kumar’s story and direction, co-scripting with Sanjeev Dutta, and editing by Arief Sheikh lack fine-tuning and therein lays the main reason for this misery!... full review

Thumbs down by Swayamsrestha Kar, fullhyd.com ...In this disaster of epic proportions, nothing works, definitely nothing is "cool" enough, and probably all of it will give you a raging... headache... full review

Thumbs down by Saurabh Dwivedi, india today ...Lots of action, lost of attempt to create drama, and not-so-great dialogues take over the movie.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...'Yaariyan' is meant to be many things as we keep discovering as we are dragged along its unending length.... full review

Thumbs down Indicine ... Yaariyan is likely to open below average to average because of the hit music even though it doesn’t boast of any known face in the starcast. The spending power of the Indian teenager might even help the makers make decent profits... full review

Thumbs down by Mohar Basu, koimoi ...The screenplay and editing both are as pathetic. The music is good but a song title Maa as a rock song doesn’t do a great job. Honey Singh’s party tracks are the only thing to look forward to in the music album and that itself is grim news... full review

Thumbs down by Shubha Shetty-Saha, MiD DAY ...Hopefully we’ll get to watch more of her in some other film but you certainly need to avoid this on... full review

So-So by Joginder Tuteja, Movie Talkies ...film which has an all new star-cast and a debutant director, Yaariyan turns out to be an outing which doesn't let any boredom to set in. Decent enough ... full review

Thumbs down by Divya Solgama, MoviezADDA ...Well except for some good foot tapping music and fantastic locations there is absolutely no dum in this cheap and boring film... full review

Thumbs down by Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV ...Yaariyan talks about a whole lot of other things – friendship, trust, patriotism, race attacks and tolerance – but makes no sense at all.... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now Running.com ... With no plot, horrid screenplay and horrendous performances, Yaariyan, in short, is the example that movie-making is not everybody's business. Stay away... full review

Thumbs down by Paloma Sharma, Rediff ...Yaariyan may be targeted at a young audience but every single teenager who chooses to watch it will be insulting their own intelligence,... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...Out of the several people making their debut, Rakul Preet (the nerdy gal) shows some real potential. Hero Himansh Kohli also looks like he has a shot, if he agrees to a haircut... full review

Thumbs down by Ankita Chaurasia, Star Blockbuster ...The end credits start with a note from the director that says, “Making a film and bringing up a baby are two of the most difficult tasks in the world and I was doing both together - See more at: http://starblockbuster.com/movie-review-yaariyan#sthash.R8mA9xx9.dpuf... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...Music alone is the upside of the flim. A sheer torture best avioded... full review

So-So by Madhureeta Mukherjee, Times of India ...Yaariyan' is nothing to gush about, but the teenies can watch this one for a lark...and some yo-yo beats!... full review
