  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-8
The first half of YAARIYAN has its moments of fun, although the narrative tends to go astray at times. However, the writing gets consistent in the post-interval portions. The mountain biking race as also the rock climbing contest is the mainstay of the film. They are brilliantly executed!

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-2
Deepti Naval, essaying walk-on mom to the hero’s childhood chum who has gone away to Australia to earn the kind of dough that can help his mother quit being a girls’ hostel warden, is in tears virtually all through Yaariyan. It is easy to see why.

  •  Daily Bhaskar - Rating-4
Even before its release, Yaariyan  has drawn a lot of attention, thanks to the refreshing music and good promos. But it’s going to be a jerky ride for the debutant director Divya Kohsla at the box office as the film is full of loopholes and fails to connect with the audience.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
A film old starlet turned wife of T-Series' head honcho Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar fulfils her life long dream of turning into a director with youth based film Yaariyan. Now although the business tycoon displays astute business sense when he produces movies that rake in the moolah

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-2
College campus? Check. One college hottie who speaks Hindi in a rather strange accent? Check. One nerd of a girl who later blooms? Check. One sidekick? Check. One college dude on a bike? Check. Ladies hostel? Check. Boys with hormones working overtime? Check.

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-1
The style is modern, the sensibility from decades ago. That sums up the film.So horny boy Lakshya (Himansh Kohli) is the college skirt-chaser.With hair covering his ears and forehead, newbie Kohli is hardly styled like heartthrob material

  •  India Today -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-1
The movie opens to a scene of a play in motion, one that's telling the story of Indo-Pak war. When suddenly there's a scene that requires "Ma", only "Ma" is busy kissing her boyfriend backstage.Yaariyan is an entirely disappointing film. The characters are flawed, and the acting is fake.

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-0
There is no valid reason for you to watch Divya Khosla Kumar’s Yaariyan. It is dull, boring, pathetic and doesn’t seem to get over. Have you ever tried Indian, Italian, American, Continental cuisines all together in the same evening? Trust me the film was a pathetic variation of the same

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
‘Yaariyan’ is meant to be many things as we keep discovering as we are dragged along its unending length. A youthful college film. A patriotic film that waves the Indian flag in faraway Australia and our own Sikkim. A love story with a fresh pair. And a container for some popular songs.

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-4
Yaariyan is a tailor made recipe for the teens, or those who have stacks of Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl DVDs lined up on their shelf.  A story of five friends who fight racism in Australia and battle it out at a talent championship to save their college, Yaariyan has only one big trump card – its music.

  •  IBN Live -Rohit Vats Rating-4
I personally like the films which highlight the problems of modern youth, but then the designer youngsters of the Hindi film industry don't seem to have one. Anyway, I think it's too early for this review to turn into a rant, so let's come to the point.

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
'Grease' was the word. Helping hormone-rushed youngsters slide into puberty and outta tight-fitting pants. 'Yaariyan' could have been the word. About friends, first-kisses and hot flushes. Peppered with candy-crushes and teenage desires furthest from reality.

  •  Book My Show -Tanaya Ramyani Rating-5
It wasn’t very surprising to see a bunch of college kids outside the theater bubbling with excitement for the teen-flick Yaariyan. Debutante director Divya Khosla Kumar’s, Yaariyan which releases today is all about first love, first kiss, first winning moment and a lot of hormonal imbalances.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-0
It’s bad enough that Mrs Kumar used her husband’s money to torture us with her stupendous stupidity. That she has the gall to cull favour by peddling her gender, motherhood and being a film director — all Herculean tasks, apparently, accomplished simultaneously — made me have seriously violent

  •  Bollywood Life -Namrata Thakkar Rating-2
The most important element – the script! There is too much happening at one point and then suddenly there is nothing happening at all beyond the bosom popping. Brilliant actors like Deepti Naval and Gulshan Grover are wasted.He flashes his million dollar grin in every frame, which soon gets very irritating.
