We Are Family Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 3.5/5
WE ARE FAMILY is a perfect family film with a good mix of emotions and humour. Plus, a brilliant climax, which will ensure that the film grows with a strong word of mouth. Final word? WE ARE FAMILY is for the family. It is well acted, deftly written, entertaining and broadly appealing drama. Watch it with someone you love!
Sukanya Venkatraghavan (Filmfare) 3/5
You can put your money where your heart is with WAF. And yes don’t forget to carry tissues. Infact take the whole box with you. world and its mother has watched Stepmom we won’t go into the story of We Are Family. The film totally scores on its emotional narrative, speckled with smile-inducing, heart tugging scenes that make you choke with laughter while wiping away the tears from your cheeks.
Rajeev Masand (CNN-IBN) 2/5
Let down by clunky dialogue, a surprisingly uninspired score from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, and an absence of enough drama to liven up the pace, ‘We Are Family’, produced by Karan Johar, is a staggeringly dull film.
Nikhat Kazmi (The Times of India) 3/5
Kajol and Kareena provide heart and soul to a predictable script. Watch it for the all-woman show.
Komal Nahta (KoiMoi.com) 1.5/5
We Are Family will fail to make a mark at the box-office. It will meet with different responses from different sections of the audience. By and large, it will be liked by the high-class ladies and balcony-class audience but not by the youngsters and the masses.
Preeti Arora (Rediff) 1/5
At the end of two hours, debut director Sidharth Malhotra’s film — which is intended to be a sob story — did leave the audience in tears. Of boredom.
Saibal Chatterjee (NDTVMovies.com) 2.5/5
We Are Family may actually help it strike an instant chord with that segment of the soda-and-popcorn crowd that loves the feel of moist eyes and drenched hankies.Trouble is there is little in the film that could take your attention away from the surface-level inducements.
Nishtha Bhatnagar (NewsX.com) 2.5/5
If the intent of the movie was to churn our emotions and bring us closer to our loved ones, it certainly succeeds
Pankaj Sabnani (Glamsham.com) 3/5
WE ARE FAMILY is a ‘family’ entertainer. This STEPMOM (remake) isn’t bad. Watch it with your entire family and a bunch of tissues.
Renuka Rao (DNA India) 2.5/5
There is nothing in the film that can be spoken of as innovative, Add to it the extended climax (yawn!) which is thoroughly ravaged by the quintessentially melodramatic Bollywood extra touch and what you have in the end is a disappointing tearjerker.
Khalid Mohamed (PassionForCinema.com) 1/5
We Are Family is an endurance test to sit through. It’s no longer all in the family – meaning warmth, love, sharing, caring – it’s all about gross manipulation to coerce the audience to shed a tear or twenty. Carry a bottle of glycerine though, here’s one Family you’d hate to see move in next-door. Don’t answer the doorbell please.
K.K Rai (Stardust India) 3/5
Despite of having a serious theme of terminal illness, the movie has its entertaining moments. The movie is aimed at the female segment of society and it will successfully attract them towards theaters. A good family fare.
Sonia Chopra (Sify Movies) 2.5/5
Debut director Siddharth Malhotra serves us old wine in a new, expensive bottle. It’s evident in the characterisation, the dated dialogue, and the choice of the heavy-duty background score where you hear a woman’s alaap for the most part; a mainstay in our saas-bahu soaps. If you’ve been pining for an old-fashioned tear-jerker, this one’s for you.
Mayank Shekhar (Hindustan Times) 2/5
The premise is stuff dry tissues are made for. Yet, the pathos here is produced not from moments, but from performances alone: a stunning Kajol’s in particular.
Minty Tejpal (Mumbai Mirror) 1.5/5
The entire film has a weepy, forced, set-like air about it, with poorly translated dialogues and pre-packaged situations. The sterile atmosphere is neither Indian nor foreign, and the resultant emotions are all mixed up.
Shubhra Gupta (Indian Express) 2/5
It’s all so contrived that you despair of this film having a single genuine emotion.
Kaveree Bamzai (India Today) 2/5
Kajol cries, Kareena cries, the kids cry and even Rampal sheds an artful tear. We weep for the loss of two hours.
