Qarib Qarib Singlle – Reviews

We share some reviews from the newspapers and critics below:

CNN NEWS 18: Rajeev Masand – 3/5

Qarib Qarib Singlle, starring Irrfan Khan and Parvathy, revisits that familiar premise of a romance kindled over a road trip. To be fair though, it’s done with some degree of flair and much levity. Featuring a winning performance from its leading man, the film corroborates the popularly held view that just about anything is considerably improved by the presence of Irrfan in it.  Read More

NDTV: Saibal Chatterjee – 3/5

A light-hearted traipse through loves lost and lives interrupted, Tanuja Chandra’s Qarib Qarib Singlle – yes, it is single with double ‘l’ – isn’t anywhere near qarib qarib perfect. But give or take a few stray missteps, it is an elegantly crafted, languidly paced film that puts a delightfully off-kilter, mellow spin on the conventions of the rom-com. Read More

The Times Of India: Neil Soans – 3.5/5

A contemporary love story between two opposite personalities who embark upon an unusual journey, which becomes an adventure of a lifetime. Read More

Indian Express: Shubhra Gupta – 3.5/5

rrfan’s brand of unkempt, tumble-locked sexiness comes through strongly precisely because he doesn’t try too hard, revealing flashes of banked passion behind the deceptively laidback demeanour. In the hands of a lesser actor, the thin material he’s given to work with would have turned him into a faintly distasteful louche.Read More

Hindustan Times: Shweta Kaushal  – 4/5

The movie tells the story of two adults who embark upon a journey and discover themselves in the process. It begins with Jaya (Parvathy), a work-obsessed 35-year-old widow who carries her understated personality in pastel dresses. While she rules her workplace, Jaya lacks confidence when it comes to her personal life. Read More

Mumbai Mirror: Kunal Guha – 3.5/5

In a scene from this film, a woman in her mid-30s is awaiting her internet-fixed date at a coffee shop. Cracking her knuckles nervously, she panics on noticing the wedding ring on her finger. She yanks it out and rubs the finger vigorously to smoothen the impression left by the ornament. Soon, her growing anxiety coupled with the weariness of waiting bears too heavy on her and she storms out of the coffee shop.    Read More

Mid-Day: Mayank Shekhar – 3/5

Frankly, this delightful film carries within it such a charmingly mature, old-world take on love, lust, and romance, that it’s hard to believe that its plot effectively hinges on a seemingly shady online dating site that gets a girl (Parvathy) and a guy (Irrfan) to meet in the first place.  Read More

DNA India: Meena Iyer – 3.5/5

Irrfan Khan’s honeymoon with the movies is on. After Hindi Medium, here comes yet another film where the actor, who plays a poet with a philosophical bent of mind, steals the show with some cleverly-written lines. The nicest thing about him in this movie is that he doesn’t try too hard and, yet you can’t help but fall in love with him. Read More
