Rohan Naahar | Hindustan Times: 4/5 | 8/10
Karwaan is a bittersweet, tender and hilarious road trip film about life and death, fathers and their children; featuring three empathetic central performances by Irrfan, Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Karwaan might not be the roller coaster ride you expected it to be, but it leaves you with a warm fuzzy feeling in the heart ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 3/5 | 6/10
Karwaan isn’t perfect, but I enjoyed the film’s laidback, unhurried vibe, and it’s terrific music ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: 2/5 | 4/10
Karwaan stays on the surface. Which, it must be said, is beautiful - this film will make you want to book a trip to Kerala. But it could have been much more ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 3/5 | 6/10
The film, to its credit, recognizes here that a road trip is little more than a memorable car ride. Perhaps even the director recognizes that the adventure, in fact, lies within - as opposed to the actual physicality of a journey ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5 | 5/10
Karwaan is aiming for an easy, offhand charm, and we get that only in bits and pieces, especially when Irrfan hits his stride on occasion, or when Dulquer proves just how good he can be by not doing much at all ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Karwaan had the potential to be a fun ride. Unfortunately, much of it remains unrealized ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5 | 4/10
KARWAAN is a good opportunity gone waste. Irrfan Khan is the biggest draw of this film but the audiences might be dejected to not see him in his full glory ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The paper thin & unconvincing plot, the movie hangs on a thin thread which is saved by Irrfan Khan’s performance ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 2.5/5 | 6/10
The film offers a nuance not often seen in Hindi cinema or Indian cinema at large, when it speaks of a generation gap between youngsters separated in age by perhaps a decade ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: - | 7/10
Even as the film makes you laugh uproariously, it gives some bittersweet insights into life in its own whimsical way ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Detours and stopovers to cancelled weddings, random goons, Mere Mehboob-style coy romances, run-ins with exes and premature exchange of opinions, personal life and preconceptions make Karwaan wander off in a medley of much ado about nothing ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3/5 | 6/10
Film oscillates between being a fun-ride and a dark-drag. Karwaan is strictly meant for Irrfan Khan's fans ... Full Review

Reuters: - | 4/10
For the most part, you cannot wait for this trip to end ... Full Review

Live Mint: - | 6/10
Irrfan precisely spits out the acerbic dialogue written by Hussain Dalal. He's a delight, whether in the foreground or background. Thanks to these two talents, Karwaan manages to navigate the pot-holed script ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 6/10
Together with Salmaan, Irrfan lends the movie the poignance it seeks, but doesn't always find, over 120 minutes ... Full Review

Deccan Chronicle: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Runs on Irrfan’s quirky wit, Dulquer’s charm. The film suddenly pauses and everyone seems to be going on weak, predictable tangents ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Quirky road movie with a wink of wisdom ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 | 7/10
This comedy is also a roadtrip and Avinash Arun's cinematography gives the film a picture postcard quality ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Karwaan is a refreshing sip for the parched soul with its relatable characters and their journey of self-discovery ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 3/4 | 8/10
Funny, emotional, moving, this Irrfan-Dulquer-Mithila journey is a treat ... Full Review

Masala: 3/5 | 6/10
Karwaan is a film that deals with dealing grief and life at large. It's a film on existentialism. It's a slice of life served with enough delicious toppings. Bite into it! ... Full Review

Zee News: - | 6/10
"Karwaan" has much that is wrong with it. But it also has plenty that pleases, a warmth and an empathy for the misfits that makes it a very endearing road trip, albeit with irrelevant deviations ... Full Review

India TV: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Karwaan will connect you to the soul level if you’ve been missing such slice-of-life films in Bollywood. You will find yourself smiling foolishly throughout the film, and that’s where it wins ... Full Review

The Week: 2.5/5 | 6/10
Karwaan makes for an average watch with brilliant, but subtle acting ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 1/10
Karwaan Is Low on Merit, High on Insensitivity. Racist, classist and misogynist, the film audaciously tries to find humour amid bleakness ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan: - | 5.5/10
A bland, weightless road movie, but the cast keeps you watching ... Full Review

India West: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A Bright Slice-of-Life Film with Irrfan Khan’s Finest Performance ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Film is a soul-searching journey you shouldn't miss. If nothing else, catch it for the brilliance that is Irrfan Khan ... Full Review

Cinema Express: 3/5 | 6/10
An entertaining, inoffensive little film. A harmless entertainer that gets most things right ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: 3/5 | 6/10
Karwaan has its share of errors in being completely convincing, but if it is the feel you are looking for then this one has it ... Full Review

The News Minute: - | 5/10
Dulquer and Irrfan try hard, but this road film falls short of heartwarming ... Full Review
