Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 3.5/5
Sonam Kapoor and Anil Kapoor’s film is a progressive drama that intentionally binds itself within mainstream convention ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 3.5/5
'ELKDTAL' talks about love being a universal feeling, one that cannot be shackled by societal norms and diktats. The writing isn’t all top-grade, but this film has its heart in the right place and sometimes that's all that really matters ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5
Sonam Kapoor-starrer let down by flaccid writing. What it comes down to is this: yes, we want to make a progressive film, but we have to show our women getting freed up only after getting male approval-and-help ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2.5/5
The writing ought to have been braver. That would’ve made this film something worth crowing about; a film as memorable as the one whose iconic romantic song inspired this title ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2.5/5
Makes an important commentary on same-sex relationships in India and is embellished with some fine performances. But the narrative is very convenient to make any emotional impact ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5
Giving out the message without shouting out loud, very good amount of humour in the first half and some very impressive supporting cast performances ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2.5/5
Missed opportunity. Funny how a woman can fall in love with another woman and still need a man to ensure she gets her happy ending ... Full Review

Soumyata Chauhan | DNAIndia: 4/5
Let's take this story to the smallest of towns. Let the Sweetys in every village and every town know that they are normal! ... Full Review

Mohar Basu | Mid-Day: 3/5
Sonam Kapoor plays Sweety with charm and earnestness, and is yet uninhibited when she must be fierce. It takes courage to back a script of this nature, and she gets full marks for doing so ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5
The film’s heart is in the right place alright and the performances back up its powerful message. The first half is a little slack when it comes to the screenplay and overall the film could have benefited from better editing as well ... Full Review

Live Hindustan: 2.5/5
हो सकता है कि यह फिल्म समलैंगिता को नापसंद करने वाले, स्वीकार नहीं कर पाने वाले बहुसंख्यक लोगों को अपने पक्ष में न खड़ा कर सके, लेकिन उन्हें कुछ देर के लिए ही सही, ‘न्यूट्रल’ तो करती है। ... Full Review

Urmimala Banerjee | Bollywood Life: 3.5/5
ELKDTAL is definitely a thought-provoking film and its triumph lies in telling a tough subject with a certain amount of humour and lyricism ... Full Review

Sharan Dhaliwal | The Guardian: 4/5
Ek Ladki has helped us take a step further into the right direction ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 3.5/5
A new-age love story well told. An interesting romance tale with a social message, where love blossoms at a wedding and culminates on the stage of a theatrical performance ... Full Review

Karishma Shetty | Bollywood Life: 3/5
The film will leave you with a broader mindset which India truly needs ... Full Review

Shalu Singh | India TV: 3/5
This is a film with daring vision along with all the entertainment formulas ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 1.5/5
Plastic Drama with Fake Emotions, and a Passé Punjabi Overdrive ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2.5/5
Ek Ladki moves along on the strength of its progressive theme and some fine performances. Typical Bollywood elements – quirky characters, peppy songs, posh settings, syrupy emotions ... Full Review

Ananya Bhattacharya | India Today: 4/5
Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is a precious film. It is an important film for the times we live in. It will not be a blockbuster. But it might just make you change the way you look at love. If you choose to let your 'dil' take precedence over your 'dimaag' ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 4/5
Film Is A Whiff Of Fresh Air With Daring Vision And Entertainment. It sails to uncharted parts and travels miles, but it does so without rocking the boat too violently ... Full Review

Manisha Lakhe | Now Running: 2.5/5
The film is by no means a great friend to the LGBTQ community. But it is a step in understanding the lifestyle differences we are just beginning to acknowledge in the society in India. As they say, 'Baby Steps.' ... Full Review

Elizabeth Kerr | The Hollywood Reporter: 3/5
Old-fashioned and simplistic, but also groundbreaking and entertaining ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 2/5
Not that the script affords her much, but even with what she has, she squanders the chance to depict the real struggle of women in small-town India and the prejudices they must deal with daily. She is the film’s weakest link, and the reason why this story falls short ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 1.5/5
This Sonam Kapoor-starrer more cliche, less pride. The hush-hush handling doled out to homosexuality in this film is bound to do more damage than good ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: 1.5/5
The writing feels somewhat old-fashioned, with comic routines announcing themselves as such, with silly music and exaggerated accents. Nor is it exactly subtle ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 2/5
Her act, when combined with the fact that that the big reveal is not really a big reveal, makes the film a superficial attempt at addressing homosexuality in a mainstream film ... Full Review

Tanul Thakur | The Wire: 2/5
Makes you want to cheer, but Sonam Kapoor's limited acting dilutes a complex character. ... Full Review

Arnab Banerjee | Deccan Chronicle: 2.5/5
Serious subject fails to create impact. At best, ELKDTAL is out-there! But not quite! ... Full Review

Priya Hazra | The Statesman: 3.5/5
The movie came as a whiff of fresh air but if you have already watched the trailers, you would already be aware of half of the plot. However, the reason you might want to give your 120 minutes to this unconventional romantic drama is for the audacious attempt ... Full Review
