Anjaana Anjaani Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 4/5
Anjaana Anjaani is worth a watch. If you are a romantic, or even if you are not, Anjaana Anjaani is a must-see for its interpretation of modern-day romance. Recommended!
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
Anjaana Anjaani doesn’t actually set the screen on flames. All it promises is some fun moments, a peppy music score by Vishal-Shekhar, alluring performances by Ranbir and Priyanka. Don’t go looking for something new. And you will enjoy it.
Anupama Chopra (NDTVMovies.com) 2/5
Anjaana Anjaani has a flatness that is unique. The screenplay, co-written by Siddharth and Advaita Kala from a story by Mamata Anand, goes nowhere fast. Priyanka, a National Award-winning actress goes for the artificial bubbly vibe. Ranbir tries hard to salvage the film, dropping his shirt several times but even his lovingly shot chest can’t save the film.
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 2/5
Inevitably, the show or whatever there is of it, belongs entirely to Ranbir Kapoor. He’s restrained and believable, often enhancing the material with his eye language and alternately gung-ho and gentle dialogue delivery.But for that performance, you’re likely to forget Anjaana Anjaani as soon as the lights come on in the auditorium. Truly, it’s more anjaana than fiction.
Sukanya Verma (Rediff) 2/5
Truth be told, Anjaana Anjaani is embellished with contradictions. Frankly, why don’t we improvise on the usual before taking on the genre of unusual love stories, what say?
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 2/5
On the whole, Anjaana Anjaani doesn’t involve the viewer and looks like a forced drama. It will not find much appreciation at the ticket windows, although its business in the first weekend will be good. Average fare.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 1/5
Watching “Anjaani Anjaani” is the equivalent to having your foot run over by a speeding car – it’s an unbelievably painful experience.
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2.5/5
Ranbir Kapoor has some sparkling moments which are clearly created just for that purpose, Priyanka Chopra has done the perky miss act before, and she’s fine, even if not madly different. These are good actors being made to boost a limp story: they needed a better film.

Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 1.5/5
Ranbir Kapoor, the star, remains the only big idea behind this film then. He bares his torso; walks around in a white ‘baniyan’ (what Americans call the “wife-beater” vest), eager to bring back a forgotten wear; charms women with his look; swigs the tequila shots; almost gets buggered by a hulk; drives under the desert sun… All for a story that doesn’t exist.
Pankaj Sabnani (Glamsham.com) 3/5
Anjaana Anjaani is an ‘Anjaani’ love story. You will surely fall in love with it.
K.K Rai (Stardust India) 3/5
Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have given superlative performances in the flick. Even the music of Vishal and Shekhar has soul in it and should be a factor for the audiences to come to theatre. However, the first half of the flick is relatively slow. Given the day of judgment in Ayodhya case, the movie may face tough weather at the box office.
Sarita Tanwar (Mid Day India) 3/5
Anjaana Anjaani is not a complicated love story; it’s still heartfelt and even heartbreaking at times. The performances are top-notch — Priyanka Chopra is at her casual and spontaneous best. She embraces the character completely and makes it totally believable. Ranbir Kapoor continues his rock-steady run and is one of the main factors that make the film so poignant.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara (NowRunning.com) 3/5
Anjaana Anjaani works for the die-hard romantics and fans of the lead stars. For the rest it is an average storyline with good amount of repetitiveness embedded with superlative performances.
Gaurav Malani (Economic Times) 2/5
Both Ranbir and Priyanka look stunning and play their sketchy parts effortlessly. But beyond that there’s nothing in the film – no other characters, no other chronicle, no great conflicts. The film ends up being a romantic comedy which the viewer is no Anjaana Anjaani to.
Renuka Rao (DNA India) 3.5/5
Anjaana Anjaani begs to differ from other done-to-death romcoms in Hindi cinema in the sheer exclusivity of its screenplay and the way the subject is developed, which both amuses and stirs you.
Pooja Rao (BollySpice.com) 2.5/5
Anjaana Anjaani is a no-frills love story with adequate eye candy from scene A-Z, strong production values, made for a target audience like almost every other rom-com these days. As a final line, Anjaana Anjaani is strange? yes! Great? No, not for me.
Minty Tejpal (Mumbai Mirror) 1.5/5
The duo have spark together, but not enough to ignite a lame script. The production values of Anjaana Anjaani are lush, while the film is beautifully shot, but all that is meaningless in the end. The film never ever connects, the dialogue is stilted and the music stays ordinary, just like the film.
