Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 5/10
Rajkummar Rao-Varun Sharma's equation stands out in convoluted film, Janhvi Kapoor is average ... Full Review

Harshada Rege | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
An entertaining blend of laughs and thrills ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 3/5 | 6/10
You may not remember this 145-minute film for its ideas but you’ll remember it for high entertainment quotient. Just like Hera Pheri, Thank You and Ankhiyon Se Goli Maare, Roohi too establishes an instant connect in spite of outrageous situations and extremely over the top comedy ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 4/10
Roohi Has A Screenplay That Borders On Incoherence. The film wants to juggle many balls – horror, comedy, feminist messaging, a love triangle, a bromance – but ends up dropping almost all of them ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 2/10
Roohi Succumbs To The Limitations Of The Horror Comedy. The problem is blatant: the deliberate misogyny of the comedy is at odds with the belated feminism of its horror ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 4/10
Roohi is so implausible that it will fail at the concept level itself. However, it will do fair business in the hinterland ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1/5 | 2/10
Janhvi Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao’s horror comedy is plain horrible. What’s missing is a coherent plot and writing. All we get is one cringe-inducing sequence after the next ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 | 4/10
Rajkummar Rao is funny in parts but as the absurdist plot careens out of control, he looks as lost as the feckless character he is on the screen ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2.5/5 | 5/10
ROOHI rests on a unique concept, fine performances and some interesting funny and horror sequences ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 2/5 | 4/10
DISAPPOINTING. Nowhere close to #Stree... Weak screenwriting... Works in bits and spurts, not in entirety... Second half + climax lacks impact... #JanhviKapoor very good, #RajkummarRao, #VarunSharma excel ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Roohi has its moments, but they’re very few to label this as an entertaining product overall. The acting department shines, and the others remain to be in between from bad to moderately good ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 1.5/5 | 3/10
A horror comedy that’s dead on arrival despite sporadic humour, feminist aspirations ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5 | 4/10
As a self-confessed scaredy-cat, I have to say I was dreadfully exhausted by the end and noting the sloppy visual effects and continuity glitches in Janhvi's ghostly makeup ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 4/10
Horror-comedy has some spirit but no soul. Without the entertainment offered by Stree or the conviction of Bulbbul, Roohi is neither here nor there, like its dual-sided heroine ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2/5 | 4/10
Rajkummar Rao-starrer is a big disappointment, is a mediocre attempt at storytelling that fails to deliver the goods ... Full Review

Mid-Day: 3/5 | 5.5/10
Despite chills and thrills galore, Roohi falls short on the smarts ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Janhvi Kapoor's Horror Comedy Falls Flat When It Comes To 'Kiston Mein' Laughs & Chills ... Full Review

India Forums: 2/5 | 4/10
Roohi’s absurdity and not so comic screenplay is saved by Varun Sharma’s act as Rajkumar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor struggle to save the film from failure ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 6/10
Brilliant Rajkummar Rao makes this convoluted horror comedy watchable ... Full Review

Glamsham: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Uniquely delightful & funny horror pop corn ... Full Review

The Week: 1/5 | 2/10
Do not waste your time on this horror-comedy. Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma deliver well despite a shoddy script ... Full Review

The Quint: 2/5 | 4/10
For a film like this, it’s the easy laughs that one would ideally want to go for, but the narrative has more lows than highs ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 4/10
The film's jumbled screenplay ultimately lets down the film. It does bring in the laughs and the thrills initially but it soon wears off ... Full Review

Telly Chakkar: 2/5 | 4/10
The few comedy scenes look forceful, and the screenplay and writing are strictly average. The movie drags on, and you lose interest midway ... Full Review

Gulf News: 2/5 | 4/10
Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor's horror comedy fails to land. Hardik Mehta’s movie is on shaky ground as he tries to blend humour and gore ... Full Review

Khaleej Times: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Janhvi ghosts us with a tale that is all show and no punch. Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma’s bromance enlivens an otherwise purposeless movie ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Without mincing words, Roohi is pretty dull for long stretches, with a very uneven screenplay, which also has more than its share of confounding moments ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Rajkumar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor’s film lacks a spirit of horror-comedy. While there are rumours that the makers have chosen an inexplicable climax to factor in a prequel, there are many loose-ends that could have been tied-up ... Full Review

Bollywood Bubble: 3/5 | 5.5/10
While the first half is entertaining, the second is equally bland. The climax lacks the vision and touch of Raj and DK. I truly was left disappointed with the storyline, Rajkummar and Varun’s performance does make it worth the while ... Full Review

Peeping Moon: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Rajkummar Rao’s and Varun Sharma’s camaraderie steals the show; Janhvi Kapoor impresses with her contrasting double act ... Full Review

Mashable: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Even with Rajkummar Rao returning with his impeccable comic timing and doing all the heavy-lifting, the film is a little shy from being an absolute bore ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | IWM Buzz: 4/5 | 8/10
Baffling and amusing in turns, Roohi stays many steps ahead of our expectations.It is sometimes exasperating in its oblique ghoulishness but constantly engaging ... Full Review
