  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-7
One plate Chicken Khurana coming up. Everyone's welcome to dig in. Pure vegetarians, hard-core non-veggies and others. Because, this dish is more a slice of life, than a chicken drumstick, really. So bite into it (with a pinch of salt, of course). A decade after fleeing to thePunjus' very own phoren land

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-7
Simply put, this film is a little gem. A well-written and neatly crafted comedy woven around the life and times of a dhaba-owning family in a real Punjab hamlet, it is redolent as much of the smells and sounds of the soil as it is of the aroma of the delicious dish referred to in the title.

  •  DNA -Aniruddha Guha Rating-6
Anurag Kashyap has been one of Hindi cinema's most prolific producers lately. Apart from releasing a bunch of films in theatres and showing some others at international festivals in 2012, his banner AFKPL has a slate of films lined up for next year. But while the filmmaker and his team continues to give

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-5
Everyone in 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana' speaks in Punjabi. Not the kind of exaggerated, colourised 'zubaan' of your average Bollywood potboiler. The everydayness of the language in this likeable film is one of its pleasures. As well as that it has been shot on real locations

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-6
Like some culinary concoctions that take forever to stew before they're finally ready, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is a satisfying and enjoyable film, even if it does take its own sweet time to come together. Kunal Kapoor stars as Omi, a young man who has failed to do much with his life

  •  Rediff -Rohit Khilnani Rating-7
Among the clutter of unwatchable movies at the cinemas, there is usually one charming film that makes it worth the price of the ticket. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is a slice of life from north India like Khosla Ka Ghoslaand Band Baja Baraat were.

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-6
Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana is about the frantic search for a much-coveted recipe for chicken curry. Directed by debutant Sameer Sharma and co-produced by Anurag Kashyap, it has been pitched as Bollywood's first food film. But the curry is merely a plot device.

  •  Filmfare -Raghuvendra Singh Rating-6
Anurag Kashyap Productions seems to be doing a fantastic job with its line-up of small but fresh films. Gangs Of Wasseypur 1 and 2 presented a detailed view of Bihar and Bahubali politics and these films were praised for their detail, colourful language and insights.

  •  Mid Day -Janhavi Samant Rating-4
Char aane ki murgi, baarah aane ka masala! In a nutshell, that’s what Luv Shuv Te Chicken Khurana is all about.To be frank, the roti-shoti, the pind da setting and the elaborate discourse on Punjabi excesses that we once enjoyed in films like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge is not so humourous anymore.

  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-7
In Mumbai, one of the popular eateries is known for serving yummilicious methi malai gosht. Its recipe is kept confidential. I am told, the recipe was known to the father, now the son knows it and I presume, it will be passed on to the next generation at the opportune time

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-7
He is “Omi from London” and his homecoming to his Punjab hamlet after ten years is warm and welcoming. His aunt and the rest of the family are beside themselves with happiness while his uncle remains distant as he had left the family without a warning.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-6
For long Anurag Kashyap has been associated with gritty and brooding cinema that has had black humour if need be of entertainment. However, now is the time when he tries revamping his image with a savory that he offers to his fans Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
Making his debut as a director, Sameer Sharma dishes out a palatable fare. He has got the right ingredients, which makes for a delectable dish. The casting is smart and the characters are people you can identify with. The emotions and frustrations too are on the dot.

  •  Outlook -Namrata Joshi Rating-6
KISS (Keep It Straight and Simple) is a sound formula for making movies. Sameer Sharma does just that in LSTCK. It’s the unfussy, uncomplicated story of a grandson, Omi (Kapoor), returning to his grandfather to escape a London gangster. The grandpa is senile and has forgotten the recipe for the chicken

  •  Time Out -Uday Bhatia Rating-6
Even if Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana was a total washout, it would still have rendered an important public service by highlighting how closely a clean-shaven Kunal Kapoor resembles Anil Kumble. As it happened, Sameer Sharma’s directorial debut was diverting enough to banish thoughts of Jumbo
