  •  Times of India -madhureeta mukherjee rating-7
He sings. She sings. He, for his stardom. She, for her supper. And the twain meet. In a restrobar, where she croons and he swoons. And Aashiqui is born. Again! Retelling the celebrity story that stardom ain't an easy ride. It sometimes vrooms and then goes sputter, the fuel of celebdom

  •  Bollywood life rating-5
When we first heard about Aashiqui 2 we, like almost everyone else, thought it would be a sequel to the first, which made Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal instant stars. That neither of them managed to follow up on that success is a different story, but the film told a tale that could possibly be

  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-8
Since the past couple of years, Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's Vishesh Films has only invested in sequels: JANNAT 2, MURDER 3, RAAZ 3... but it's after a really long gap, of 23 years to be precise, that the premier production house and Bhushan Kumar [of T-Series] revisit one of their triumphant stories

  •  pardaphash -faisal saif rating-4
Trust me Aashiqui 2 doesn't even have the capacity to stand next to 1990's money-spinner Aashiqui. Yes Ashiqui 2 very much reminds you of Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1973's classic Abhimaan starring Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri (Bachchan). The film also reminds you of Ananth Mahadevan

  •  Daily Bhaskar -mayank shekar rating-4
This is a film on the dangers of alcohol addiction, subsequent loss of voice, and the end of a musical career. The lesson learnt is that no one should be drinking to wash away their sorrows, it makes the problem even worse. The warning signals are more along the lines of how booze can affect

  •  Rediff -nishi tiwari rating-3
I wasn’t sure how Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2 qualified to be called a sequel to Mahesh Bhatt’s 1990 hit romance film starring Rahul Roy and Anu Agarwal, so I looked up the word. Going by the dictionary definition, a sequel means, ‘A published, broadcast or recorded work that continues the story or

  •  koimoi -mohar basu rating-4
Mohit Suri’s Aashiqui 2 rambles on about a love story that turns into a convoluted mess because of alcoholism. With absolutely nothing remarkable in this distasteful blend of Devdas and Abhimaan, I will recommend this film only for Aditya Roy Kapur’s intense acting.

  •  One India -puri rating-5
Expectations are definitely high when a sequel of any superhit film is announced. But let's be very clear here, Aashiqui 2 is not a sequel of Aashiqui, the only thing common between the two films is just the name! Instead of reminding us about the old Aashiqui, which made both Rahul Roy and Anu

  •  Zee News -resham sengar rating-5
Remaking the 1990`s hit, `Aashiqui`, was a bright idea, given the adulation for the film still exists in the hearts of the audience. But sadly, `Aashiqui 2` has not been given the kind of treatment that a classical on-screen romance should have been given.

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-4
More than 20 years back, the Bhatts crafted a blockbuster out of a string of songs sung by fresh voices. And a pair of new faces, artfully hidden under a jacket, for the purposes of a poster. The songs came first, the movie came after. Aashiqui's soundtrack became all the rage.

  •  NDTV -saibal chatterjee rating-3
It is a terribly trite and tested formula. The girl possesses a voice to kill for. The boy has a fan following to die for. The twosome sings for a living.The temperamental, hard-drinking male protagonist is a major composer and songwriter with many a chartbuster under his belt and a humongous

  •  DNA -tushar joshi rating-3
Aashiqui 2 opens with close up shots of Aditya Roy Kapoor’s lips. The camera plays a game of hide and seeks before we get to see a clearer frame of his face. He stumbles and climbs the stage with blood shot eyes and begins to hum a radio friendly track to a CGI friendly audience as the

  •  Deccan Chronicle -khaled mohamed rating-5
Just think. He keeps craving a drink. And so on being asked by a girl why he keeps pursuing her “baar baar”, an alcoholic rockstar answers glumly, “Because I like bars.” Ha ha, good one. Snag: but for such moments of pun-intended humour, the Bhatt Brothers-produced and the

  •  Hindustan Times -anupama chopra rating-5
It's an interesting scenario and Suri and his actors set it up well. The rockstar angle in Hindi movies always has touches of unintentional comedy - note Rahul's headgear, the stadiums filled with swooning fans and a hilariously slimy journalist in the second half who pushes Rahul to the brink again

  •  Mumbai Mirror -karan anshuman rating-5
An alcoholic rockstar rarely in control of his actions, a culturally-rooted girl who sings at bars and aspires to be Lata. An innocent resolve to guide that snowballs into a torrid affair. Love. Addiction. Tears. Karma. Sacrifice. Music. Music, above all else. This, in a nutshell, is Aashiqui 2: freshly crated
