• In movies like Qarib Qarib Singlle, we don’t even get that sort of pleasure, only a deadness that never goes away.

    If you happen to like this film, I have to assume there’s something seriously wrong with your idea of a journey.

  • I can’t help compare ‘Qarib Qarib Singlle’ to ‘The Lunchbox’ and feel this one just doesn’t tug at the heartstrings like the latter, which was a heartwarming tale that unfolded over inanimate letters.

  • Qarib Qarib Singlle (QQS) is fun in bits and pieces mostly in the first half, but conflicted about what it wants to say and, therefore, tedious beyond a point. Parvathy — one of Mollywood’s most respected artistes, who has just notched up a triumph in Take Off this year — makes her Bollywood debut with this film. Individually, she and Irrfan are sweet in QQS. Sadly, that is not enough.
