  •  Bollywood Hungama -taran adarsh rating-9
Opposites attract! He's charismatic, gregarious and passionate with an indomitable spirit to explore places. She's the archetypical seedhi-saadhi girl, Plain Jane actually, an academician who's focused on attaining what she's zeroed for herself as a career. Add two more characters who cross

  •  One India -nabanita rating-6
Love is in the air though it's not the Valentine's season! It's the day for which we have been waiting desperately for months. And today releases Ayan Mukerji's most-talked about romantic flick Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, that features Bollywood's cutest couple Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

  •  koimoi -mohar basu rating-8
Despite singing praises of the film, I have to agree the story is imaginatively challenged. Friendship, romance and exotic trips, is a premise Farhan Akhtar had introduced in his classic 2000 film Dil Chahta Hai, a decade back! The script travels through the lives of four individuals but it is essentially

  •  Rediff -raja sen rating-4
The exact opposite of a film where a great narrative is disrupted by songs is, then, a film where perfectly good song-and-dance sequences find themselves hampered by a tedious narrative. And that admittedly odd description should be on the poster for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

  •  NDTV -saibal chatterjee rating-5
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a bright, breezy and brassy film designed for easy consumption. What it certainly is not is ballsy. For all the big ideas about life and the dilemmas of youth that it tosses up in the air over a runtime that’s 20 minutes shy of three hours, it always opts to play safe,

  •  Times of India -meena iyer rating-8
The first twenty minutes of the second half is mundane. But the action comes together again at Aditi's wedding. Against the backdrop of the big, fat Indian wedding in picturesque Udaipur, the friends unite for the festivities. But the chinks in the armour show by way of their mixed ideologies

  •  Zee News -ananya bhattacharya rating-6
A dynamic or a sedentary life? The daily dal-chawal or the scrumptious tangri kabab? Chasing dreams or letting go of them? Director Ayan Mukerji’s second outing at the Box Office, after ‘Wake Up Sid’, is light, frothy at the primary level – and delves somewhat into the deeper recesses of human emotions

  •  DNA -tushar joshi rating-8
There is a scene in the film where perched atop a hill top overlooking Jodhpur, Deepika tells Ranbir to slow down and stop grasping everything within his reach. She asks him to be still, enjoy the moment and savour every bit of it. Ayan Mukerji's Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is full of such beautifully

  •  Indian Express -shubra gupta rating-4
It's been a few minutes since I stepped out of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, and I'm finding it hard to remember what I've just seen. This is not the sort of amnesia that you have to force yourself into after a bad, blah film. This is because I've seen this brand new film, and its characters so many,

  •  Mumbai Mirror -karan anshuman rating-6
 In the very last shot of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, the camera simply swishes past Naina (Deepika Padukone), the romantic interest and settles on Bunny (Ranbir Kapoor), the leading man who looks straight into the lens with a knowing half-smile. This last shot leaves some room for interpretation.

  •  Rediff -sukanya verma rating-7
‘You can’t have it all. You will miss out on some things. So why not enjoy what’s in hand?’ recommends Naina enjoying the gorgeous view from a vantage point of a grand fort, just few minutes short of witnessing a breathtaking sunset. Bunny, the recipient of her suggestion,

  •  Pardaphash -faisal saif rating-7
If you are a die hard fan of Fun, Frolic, Emotions, Love, Disappointments, Romance, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge kind of stories, I would propose you to go ahead and buy the tickets of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and you will not regret it. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone especially makes this

  •  Daily Bhaskar -mayank shekar rating-7
Over an hour into this film and you’re essentially convinced that this is a remake of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995). I use the word not in its sullied form – as cheap, lazy plagiarism – but as sincere, smart reinterpretation that all wonderful remakes inevitably are.

  •  Hindustan Times -anupama chopra rating-5
Name this film. A boy and a girl take a life-altering holiday together. She is mousy, studious, bespectacled. She doesn’t drink, smoke and has never been kissed. He is a reckless charmer who flirts outrageously. Love blossoms, for her at least, but they must part and then reunite in the foreground

  •  IBN Live -rajeev masand rating-6
How much you enjoy 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' depends entirely on how much you've missed the typical Karan Johar formula. 'Wake Up Sid' director Ayan Mukerji takes us on a familiar journey through holiday romances, family conundrums, and big fat Indian weddings. It's predictable every step

  •  Deccan Herald -manjula rating-8
This may be Ayan Mukerji’s second film, but with Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD), he has proved that he is not a one time wonder with Wake Up! Sid.
Not only does YJHD bear the unmistakable stamp of Ayan’s joie de vivre – a carryover from his debut, his chemistry with his lead star Ranbir Kapoor

  •  Deccan Chronicle -khaled mohamed rating-6
The heroine of Ayan Mukerji’s 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', is in fact, two movies for the price of one. And just in case that isn’t sufficient, Ms Madhuri Dixit shows up to perform an item number, set in a studio-made red-light area, which looks as faux as her smiles, wider than the Howrah Bridge.

  •  Bollywood Life -deboshree ghosh rating-6
Deepika Padukone is raising her bar with every film. She portrays a geek in this one, the kind of girl every guy doesn’t simply flirt with but falls in love with too, as Ranbir Kapoor says in his romantic baritone in one of the scenes. And this studious chick is the typical and stylish Dharma Production
