  •  Times of India -Meena Iyer Rating-8
Hasee Toh Phasee is for the romantics who like their martinis stirred not shaken. Debutant director Vinil Mathew's straight-forward approach is smart and fresh; his characters are lovable. Nikhil(Sidharth Malhotra) is an optimist, who believes once committed, there's no straying.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
How does one woo the girl he desires to get close to? Chocolates? Gifts? Compliments? A lot of women like attention too... If she reciprocates with a coy smile or a blush, or breaks into a cheery laughter, the guy knows that the girl is reciprocating. The maxim hasee toh phasee holds so true then!

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-6
Parineeti Chopra is only three films old but she has already won a special mention from the National Award jury for her performance in Ishaqzaade (2012). In her fourth feature, Hasee Toh Phasee, her first outside the Yash Raj Films banner, she proves yet again why she is often proclaimed

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4
Batty girl meets sweet fellow. Is it cute? Yes, that first `mulaqaat’ is. And then? Then ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ wanders about figuring out whether it wants to be a contemporary rom com, or a Gujju soap, or a 60s melodrama, or all of the above. This confusion confounds the film, fronted by the most talented

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-6
Directed by ad filmmaker Vinil Mathew, this can't have been an easy first film to make. There are a dozen omnipresent pre-wedding characters with their idiosyncrasies; even that rotund Gujarati relative that begins and ends monosyllabic conversations with the inimitably rhetoric 'Baaki?'

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
It is an unpretentious little odd-couple romantic comedy. But the plot of Hasee Toh Phasee is a conundrum that takes some doing to crack.The film opens in a chawl in Mumbai. It then moves for a bit to a police officer’s home in Bareilly before stopping over, again all too briefly, in the same

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-8
Director Vinil Mathew never let the story lose track. Not that scenes highlighting relationships - always tricky - were lost either. Anurag Kashyap did a good job with the dialgoues. Vishal and Shekhar's music is worth a listen.I would suggest that you do not miss the film.

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-37
There is something about ad-film makers joining the film industry. They have invariably managed to get some freshness onto the big screen with their own quirkiness. Vinil Mathew adds to the list. This director who has made scores of well remembered ad-commercial [Cadbury, Imperial Blue, Surf Excel

  •  Time Out -Aniruddha Guha Rating-7
The channel, Romedy Now, broadcasts romantic comedies – a very American phenomenon – all day long, seven days a week, through the year. There must be a market surely, even if it’s among a niche English-speaking audience, for a network to invest a great deal in only one genre of film.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-6
Thankfully the movie wasn’t much of a knock off contrary to what you’ll expect from usual romantic comedies. Though you can find inklings of the formulaic ideas typical to the genre, the story is unusual. It is unexpected that in times when the industry is infested with clone-ish designs

  •  Bollywood Life -Prathamesh Jadhav Rating-6
Love blooming between two individuals with diagonally opposite personalities is perhaps the most exploited plot in the movie business – more so in Bollywood. But there’s no denying the fact that no other emotion makes you more empathetic, compassionate and above all, engaged, than love.

  •  Daily Bhaskar - Rating-4
Those who have seen the trailers of Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra’s Hasee Toh Phasee may already have a fair idea of the plot of the story, but still there is more to know. A weird girl and a simple guy fall in love with each other, and they face endless problems before their love story ends


  •  Book My Show -Siddhi Palande Rating-7
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Kal Ho Na Ho. These are some high-rated films Dharma Productions has given us. They have gifted us with a few gems, albeit budding, like Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Siddharth Malhotra with last year’s hit Student Of The Year.

  •  One India -Smita Rating-6
The film, that is only 2 and half hours long has everything in it to make you smile, laugh and cry at the same time. While we certainly cannot say that it is the best rom-com film, it has a narrative that 'connects' you to the characters and the plot, and that is the success of Hasee Toh Phasee.

  •  Zee News -Aparna Mudi Rating-6
Director Vinil Mathew keeps the humour clean and almost all the moments of laughter are stolen by Parineeti. She probably has the best comic timing among the new crop of actresses. She reminds you a bit of Preity Zinta in `Dil Se`. She looks innocent and some sweet and intelligent dialogues

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-6
Sidharth Malhotra who made his debut with Student of the Year plays Nikhil, the son of an IAS Officer. The proverbial black sheep of the family, the scene where his parents are arguing about what he’s doing behind his locked room door, only to discover he’s in another city altogether sums up

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-6
When fresh content is clubbed with young talented actors, the outcome can be awesome! Seeing the lively promos and songs on TV, one pretty much knows what the result on the big screen will be. A strong script, focused director, talented actors, right music and all this backed by experienced producers

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-6
Nikhil (Sidharth) accidentally bumps into Meeta (Parineeti) at her sisters wedding that she's running away from. Seven years later they again happen to meet each other. This time around Nikhil is marrying Meeta's other sister  Karishma (Adah). However, Meeta isn't any ordinary girl

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-4
The title is far removed from the actual content of the film. The movie too is different from your ordinary romance. It takes a while to fall in love with the film, but thanks to the lead triangle of Sidharth Malhotra, Adah Sharma and Parineeti Chopra, things are palatable. Thanks also to Anil Mange

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-7
Socho mein idea hoti aur tum technology, humari patang kya mast udti na?” coos Parineeti Chopra in one of Hasee Toh Phasee’s *many* winning scenes. She could well be speculating about the outcome of a collaboration between Karan Johar’s spunk and Anurag Kashyap’s ingenuity.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-6
Boy (Nikhil-Siddharth Malhotra) meets girl (Meeta-Parineeti Chopra) very briefly. They meet again after seven years. This time the boy is about to get married to another girl in the next seven days. To make matters complicated you find that he is about to get married to the girl's younger sister

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-7
Every once in a while comes along a film where the character actor stays with you longer than the protagonists, no matter how much screen space they have managed to get. In Hasee Toh Phasee, it is Manoj Joshi, who plays Meeta’s (Parineeti Chopra) ambitious Gujarati businessman father.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Khaled Mohamed Rating-6
Meeta’s the sort of heroine who’d make the flesh of her ilk crawl. She’s into eating toothpaste, speaks Mandarin, dresses in junk clothes, plans to invent a strange bouncing ball. And he is a loser, cadging astronomical loans, yakking about a new IPL format, and is generally treated as a doormat.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-6
A young man finds himself drawn to his fiancee's sister in the days leading up to his wedding. That ghisa pita formula gets a fresh coat of paint in ad-filmmaker Vinil Matthew's feature debut, 'Hasee Toh Phasee', a not-always-convincing but seldom boring romantic comedy.

  •  Deccan Herald -Arkadev Goshal Rating-6
Ever wondered what would happen if Hindi films got rid of melodramatic scenes? Watch Hasee to Phasee to judge for yourself. Chances are, you will heave a sigh of relief, and giggle through the free flow of a film whose tagline describes it with a Spoonerism that seems to describe it to the T.

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-6
‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ is not a frothy romance, bubbling with KJoesque romance. It’s a slow love story that requires your patience, especially with the pace at which it progresses. You either need to have a lot of time at hand or need to be a total emotional fool to completely invest in this story.

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-6
But first, Parineeti Chopra. The film gives us yet another excuse to tell you this girl is special. She is a good actor, yes, but then there are others who fit that bill too. Perhaps the X-factor lies in her ability to make you forget she is acting. It has to do with the girl's innate knack at taking a scene

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-6
This contemporary tale of commitment, love and romantisims is a first-class production spirited by some fabulous performances with fair deliverables to the heart though the 'addiction' to 'normal' rom-com cliches steals the sombreness it promised pre-interval but still it's a cozy sweet time
