The protagonists Yami Gautam and Pulkit Samrat are too shallow and one-dimensional to be likeable, the dialogue is cringeworthy.

To be fair with the team of Sanam Re, it’s not a bad watch. It’s not a great watch either. The film starts off on a promising note, but soon goes off the track. However, it could still be your Valentine’s movie. We know how desperately you need it!

The only good thing about Sanam Re is that it is a 120-minute movie. And… if you thought this is how a love story is suppose to be, trust me on this one, you wouldn’t want to watch anymore love stories. Sanam Re is not a love story to be watched on this Valentine’s Day.

In this schizophrenic rubbish -- for it’s certainly not a script, hardly a synopsis -- landscapes change faster than its cast’s wardrobe and characters suddenly appear or mysteriously vanish at the director’s whim. 

Sanam Re is a surefire cure for insomnia. Its air of somnolence is so pervasive that a yawn a minute is absolutely guaranteed.

Unless you consider Himachal as your Sanam, this heartbreaking tale on sacrifice and unrequited love, loses its plot and purpose somewhere along the way, re.

Sanam Re melts into a pool of mess faster than the snow capped hills it is set in.

Sanam Re is a yawn-fest from the start. Kudos to you if you survive the entire film.

...boasts of great visuals and chart buster music which has been the hallmark of T Series. Even though the pace of the movie acts as deterrent at places, its target audience and the right release week (Valentine period) will see it through at the box office. Go get soaked in love. Now.

The plot is as convoluted as they come, loaded to the brink with melodrama.

Not a classic by any standards, but this emotional drama might catch the fancy of college-goers in search of mush this Valentine weekend.

Sanam Re is a dull film with good music as its plus point. In fact, it is because of the very popular music that the film has opened reasonably well. But it does not have the strength to sustain in the cinema houses for too long and will not be able to do much at the box-office. Its medium budget on the one hand and recoveries from non-theatrical sources on the other will ensure that the producers make a profit.

...may be about love but disappoints greatly and is not going to appeal to lovers this Valentine's Day, owing to its amateurish treatment and weak plot.

-

In its entirety, Sanam Re is a good attempt, but loses a lot owing to slip-shod implementation, feeble stabs at humor and a slew of platitudes and avoidable caricaturish characters.

Watch this film only if your intention is to break up with your partner on the most romantic day of the year!

They make the two hours stretch longer. If this is sweet and cute bring me another film.

    Love, Music, Comedy and Snowy Mountains

    Bollywood has drastically changed over the past few years. And is producing films of different genres. Some are Action Dramas, some are Historical Dramas and some are imbued with love and music. ‘Sanam Re’ directed by Divya Khosla Kumar is also one of the films which has melody crowned with love attached with an absurd storyline. Divya would perceive shortly from the reviews that dousing the appetite with an overdose of love partially annihilates the film causing indigestion. One plus point she has with her film is the mellifluous music, the dream light backgrounds and appearances. You can’t expect any logic from the plot. It lacks originality and completeness.
    The story is about a man Akash (Pulkit Samrat), Shruti (Yami Gautam) and Mrs.Pablo (Urvashi Rautela). Mrs Pablo loves Akash who loves Shruti. And a love triangle is created which leads to bizarre situation.
    Divya has done a mistake by mixing love with some wacky comedy scenes in a romantic film. She has a cameo appearance in a song which is needlessly egregious to watch when the film starts. Her direction and cameo in the film does not gratify
    .Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam are both progressive actors. And have a charm that can inspire admiration in other people. Their love story and chemistry drags a lot and is of a waspish type. But Urvashi Rautela, the most natty and angelic Bollywood girl presents a generous impact on viewers. Much wasn’t expected of her. She has few scenes. But makes her lively presence felt by her nubile statistics and appearances. More than acting she is particularly nifty in her appearances and tepid in some of her scenes.
    The film has to have a good music as it is a T-Series film. Lyricists, Singers and Musicians have created such a music that it can’t be criticized. Special mentions to the title song and the people who worked beyond it.
    Like ‘Yaariyan’, ‘Sanam Re’ is also partially baked. What’s bad in the film is its woozy storyline which is extensively very well supplied with love. Divya glamorized the film in many portions. And failed to balance it well. But also enthrals by virtuous songs and some appreciating dialogues. The film is a treat for fluid minds. I’m going with 3 stars for ‘Sanam Re’ and extra two for its music and sceneries which appear aesthetic.It is a perfect Valentine’s release.
