Ronak Kotecha | Times of India: 3/5 | 5.5/10
The major problem with ‘Shiddat’ is that it’s an exciting idea on paper that tends to drag in execution, especially in the second half. The story is highly unrealistic at times and preposterous too ... Full Review

Sunny Kaushal, Mohit Raina's Acting is the Only Saving Grace. Sunny does a fabulous job, but Mohit Raina is outstanding in this romance with a convoluted plot ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 3/10
A Tone-deaf Bollywood Ode to Undying Love. Kunal Deshmukh’s latest uses three solid actors – Sunny Kaushal, Radhika Madan and Mohit Raina – to suggest that there is nothing quite as aspirational as a mentally unstable male blinded by love ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 5/10
On the whole, Shiddat remains an average fare because of the drawbacks in the screenplay. Had it been released in the cinemas, it would not have done anything remarkable ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Opens on a romantic note, and proceeds to move, tonally, from sentimentality to comedy to drama before it all goes south ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: - | 3/10
At 140 minutes, Shiddat stretches time, logic and audience goodwill. The ending feels purposeful — except I doubt what that purpose is, given the muddle of emotions this film leaves you with ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Radhika Madan lends spunk, if not solidity, to Kartika. The chemistry between the leads is rudimentary. Mohit Raina adds some gravitas to the proceedings ... Full Review

Koimoi: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Sunny Kaushal Does It All To Become The Charming Bollywood Lover Only To Be Ditched By Weak Execution. The ingredients in Shiddat are perfect, but not the glue that will join them all ... Full Review

FirstPost: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Superficial, careless writing weakens the romance. Shiddat has its heart in the right place but not nearly enough narrative depth to justify its 140-minute runtime ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 2/5 | 4/10
What should be a cautionary tale on choosing your one-night stands with care becomes another lousy attempt to rehash the Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge formula by cooking up one implausible scenario after another ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 2/5 | 4/10
Kaushal-Radhika Madan's Star-Crossed Love Story Drowns In Superficial Writing ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5.5/10
Sunny Kaushal, Radhika Madan are impressive in this outdated romantic drama. The film, directed by Kunal Deshmukh, suffers from a lack of logic at crucial junctures ... Full Review

Ravi Bule | ABP Live: 3/5 | 6/10
रोमांस के दीवानों के लिए है यह फिल्म, नए जमाने में है प्यार का पुराना अंदाज. इस टोटल फिल्मी कहानी में आपको 1990 का रूमानी अंदाज नजर आएगा. अगर आप रोमांटिक फिल्मों के पक्के वाले फैन हैं तभी आपको शिद्दत की मोहब्बत रास आएगी. मोहित रैना का अभिनय जरूर यहां बहुत बढ़िया है ... Full Review

Manisha Lakhe | Money Control: - | 1/10
'Shiddat' is a reminder of all that's wrong with the portrayal of romance in Hindi cinema ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 0.5/5 | 1/10
Shiddat remains a film about a guy throwing a massive tantrum and spoiling the party for everyone. Nothing to love here really, though it would be interesting to see more of Mohit Raina and Diana Penty in a better film ... Full Review

WIONews: - | 3/10
'Jannat', 'Tum Mile' and a few others, one would think director Kunal Deskhmukh's got this. Sadly, that is anything but the reality of 'Shiddat'. Loud, garish dialogues that are so dated that instead of evoking a sense of nostalgia in its viewers, they make one want to scoot ... Full Review

R.M. Vijayakar | India West: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Remove Last Few Minutes and We Had a Hit, However Absurd ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 2/5 | 4/10
Even with decent performances, the story of Shiddat is jaw-droppingly impractical and the love that it talks about is not meant for regular, normal people ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Some love stories are evergreen and some try to be one. Shiddat, unfortunately, falls in the second category ... Full Review

Lens Men Reviews: - | 3/10
Rather than showing a palpable connection between the lead pair, the film is just emotionally trapping the heroine, showing what all the hero did to see her ... Full Review

Outlook India: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Entertaining first half that had all the frills for an engaging emotional saga, but just fizzles out thereafter! ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 1/5 | 2/10
Shiddat is a stalker story disguised as a love story disguised as a social commentary whose script should have been binned ... Full Review

Newsbytes App: 1.5/5 | 3/10
Tale of a lunatic glorified as a lover. No excuse to glorify harassment, teasing as expression of love ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | IWM Buzz: 3/5 | 6/10
A Lovely Film. Shiddat is a watchable moving film with Sunny Kaushal and Mohit Raina steering the saga through its choppy waters ... Full Review
