  •  Times of India -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-7
Struggling record label exec Dan (Ruffalo) and Gretta are both a bit worn at the seams after being dealt a few bad cards by the hand of fate. Dan is no longer on talking terms with his wife Miriam (Keener) while Gretta is heartbroken and angry, for hell hath no fury like a woman cheated on.

  •  Book My Show -Aubrey D'Souza Rating-7
An odd title. First look, leads to a double take. Then on closer inspection, you realize that it is Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo on the poster. Hold on, is that a guitar case? With that your curiosity is piqued. Trust me, once (no pun intended) that happens, you are in for a pleasant surprise.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-6
It is hard to repeat or even recreate the innocent charm of a film as terrific as 'Once'- a musical romance between an Irish busker and an immigrant flower-seller that unfolds almost entirely on the streets of Dublin- but this did not stop writer-director John Carney from trying nonetheless.

  •  Indian Express -Shalini Langer Rating-7

  •  DNA -Bryan Durham Rating-6
What's it about: Dan, a down-and-out record executive and Gretta, the ex-girlfriend of a rising pop star, meet in a bar and after a few hiccups, connect, make music on-the-go, eventually cutting a DIY (do-it-yourself) album with a little help from friends and musicians in New York.

  •  Hindustan Times -Jyoti Sharma Bawa Rating-5
To the audience used to lovers walking in the sunset holding hands, this film offers an unlikely – but deeper – climax. Where they expect kisses, Carney makes them do with meaningful looks. But then, there is so much emotion in those glances that you come back satisfied.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Blessy Chettiar Rating-7
Music as a medium of expression can never be underrated. Be it love, infatuation, indifference, scorn, or even anger, you can arrange it all on a staff, throw in words and voila, you have an outlet for your deepest feelings. Begin Again is one such film that arranges many emotions,
