  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-2
It is a rather tempting thought to write a story on friendship and love. But once you manage to overcome the initial urge to write the story, you could probably put some head into figuring a new aspect to the male bonding and love stories that have so often crowded the theaters on Fridays.

  •  Masala.com -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-3
Today I understand the meaning of signs that The Alchemist once talked about. Sign 1- The 10 am show of Purani Jeans was cancelled because they hadn’t received the print.  Sign 2- The 12:30 pm show was cancelled because the projector had crashed.

  •  Bollywood Hungama Rating-5
There have been many meanings and dimensions to the term 'friendship' aka 'dosti'. There have been a million movies which have been made with friendship being the central theme. We have also witnessed many films which showcased the friendship of two best friends going sour,

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-4
The 50's & 60's era enhanced the romantic triangle genre in our Hindi cinema. These films, mostly narrated the tale of two friends in love with the same person with the backdrop of a hill station and melodious songs attached to it. Even with the rise of action films and family dramas,

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-3
Really? A film called Purani Jeans? Is the title borrowed from the radio show of the same name, or is it that purani jeans, those stiff, tight, teenage items most of us keep in some corner of our cupboard as pathetic mementoes of our pert butts and libidinous potential/history,

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-4
Denims and Dosti - Wear it, tear it. Colour it, fade it. Use it, abuse it - but it ain't easy giving up on it. Righto! That's the mantra of this famous five, who've outgrown their chaddi-buddy years (in small-town Kasauli) becoming young men who repeatedly swear by their 'denim decree'

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-6
I went into ‘Purani Jeans’ expecting nothing, and was rewarded by a film that kept me with it. The storyline is solid even if not terribly new. It has believable characters, and an arc that moves and is moving.Anyone who has grown up with a gang of inseparables will instantly connect

  •  Koimoi Rating-3
This script has ample faults. To start with, it is highly predictable and lacks any kind of novelty. The characters are too clich├ęd, with one spoilt rich kid and the other guy coming from a poor background who wants to make it big. The story even though set in Kasauli has the characters using the Delhi lingo,

  •  Mid Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-6
After a long time comes a Hindi film about nostalgia attached to long lost friendships. And thankfully, it weaves a splendid yarn around its characters. However, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. The film could have been tauter, shorter and more arresting.

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-2
What do you think will happen when two jigri dosts fall in love with the same girl? See, You know it already! Now what if one friend is rich and the other is poor. See you already know the story. The rich guy will become a spoilt brat and the poor chap an extra-nice guy for whom the girl's dil will

  •  Book My Show -Aubrey D'Souza Rating-1
Bollywood has a lot to answer for, such as dancing around trees, love triangles, cliched friends ( such as the fat friend and the geek one), single mothers and more. However, in this film, all those awful tropes and cliches have come together to give us a truly painful movie.

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-3
Staying true to its title, Purani Jeans is an old trick in a new box. Unfortunately the magic in this trick is missing. A story of a bunch of friends from Kasauli, the film has taken cinematic liberties to use every possible cliche and amplify it ten times to make it unbearable.

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-4
First time director Tanushri Chattrji Bassu has a novel concept at hand but fails in its execution. This movie had the trappings of a JAANE TU... YA JAANE NA... with fresh faces but the below average acting of most and juvenile dialogues and situations, especially in the first half pulls the movie down.
  •  Bollywood Life -Prathamesh Jadhav Rating-2
Amazingly glossed-over and unbelievably rose-tinted, Tanushri Chattrji Basu’s directorial venture Purani Jeans has all the key ingredients of a typical college romance. In fact, so typical are these elements that you wonder if this venture was the result of the difficult-to-contain collective
  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-5
The title signifies long-term friendships that, like old jeans, becomes better with age. About five friends from Kasauli who go their different ways following a tragedy and then get back together as fated chance brings about a realignment, this films treads the bromantic path.
  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-3
There is not even a single reason to watch Director Tanushree Chatrji’s Purani Jeans. The film has a love triangle (We bet, you can’t count the number of Bollywood films made on this ancient concept), some not-so-popular actors. Yes! There is Manisha Koirala‘s Ek Choti Si Love Story actor
