Yaariyan Reviews

Shubhra Gupta
Indian Express


They should have just compiled the songs, a couple of them hummable, in a CD, instead.

Rohit Vats


The film lacks a strong conflict line. The whole racial thing in Australia emerges as the most touching part of 'Yaariyan'.

Anupama Chopra
Hindustan Times


Its stuffed with banal but infectious songs that lodge themselves in your head like Yo! Yo! Honey Singh’s aaj blue hai pani pani. But everything else in this film is a train-wreck.

Yaariyan may be targeted at a young audience but every single teenager who chooses to watch it will be insulting their own intelligence.

Yaariyan talks about a whole lot of other things – friendship, trust, patriotism, race attacks and tolerance – but makes no sense at all.It would make perfect sense to give this film a miss.

Madhureeta Mukherjee
Times Of India


'Yaariyan' is nothing to gush about, but the teenies can watch this one for a lark...and some yo-yo beats!

Strictly for those who want to enjoy the songs on the big screen, the rest can go revisit Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander the best college campus film of all time!


It would be an understatement to say such a disastrous film wasn’t made in a long long time and Yaariyan now ranks amongst one of those odd films that hit every Friday and move by without anyone noticing them.

Saurabh Dwivedi
India Today


Lots of action, lost of attempt to create drama, and not-so-great dialogues take over the movie. Avoid watching the film.

Taran Adarsh
Bollywood Hungama


...has a gripping second half, smash hit musical score and the youthful romance that should lure and entice its target audience -- the youth. A treat for youngsters and young at heart!

Daily Bhaskar
Dainik Bhaskar


Only for the teenagers and college goers who believe in unbelievable. ‘NO’ to everyone else.

Sachin Chatte
The Navhind Times


The story is regressive, silly and just about everything in the film looks fake, including the acting. The only one I felt sorry for was Deepti Naval. Surely, she deserves better than this. And so do we.

A self-indulgent, dumb movie, intolerable from the word go. The only bright point in this otherwise forgettable experience is this actress, Rakul Preet Singh.Hopefully we’ll get to watch more of her in some other film but you certainly need to avoid this one.

Komal Nahta


...has ordi­nary entertainment value but its super-hit music is its trump card. The film will, therefore, appeal to the youth and prove to be a plus fare. Its superb opening is a big plus point.

Mansha Rastogi


With no plot, horrid screenplay and horrendous performances, Yaariyan, in short, is the example that movie-making is not everybody's business. Stay away

... no brownie points for making a film like this. Yaariyan with its synthetic characters and artificial emotion has the depth and intelligence of a seedy music video. Steer clear!

    WTF was that? Thank God i'm still alive over here.

    Those 145 minutes were a total waste!! I horribly regret the 68 bucks I paid for nonsense.

    The story was clichéd, phony and nonsensical.

    The new actors are pretty annoying -- even Uday Chopra seems Oscar- worthy in front of them.

    Deepti Naval was the plus point.

    Cinematography + Direction + Choreography + Script = belch!! My neighbor walked away halfway out of annoyance. I too wanted to do that but I had a tasty tub of cheese popcorn to hog up. It kinda kept me engrossed.

    The only good thing about the movie is the soundtrack!

    One of the worst movie I ever seen in my life. A total wastage of time n 700 mb data

    Don't dare to go to cinemas.
