Monika Rawal Kukreja | Hindustan Times: - | 6/10
Overall, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, entertains you with the right intention of sending out a strong message of inclusivity ... Full Review

Hiren Kotwani | Times of India: 4/5 | 8/10
Breaks stereotypes and thoroughly entertains. The performances here are ‘tip-top’! Ayushmann Khurrana gets into the skin of the character (literally!). Watch out for his superphysical makeover ... Full Review

IANS | News18: - | 5/10
A Rom-com with a sensitive message is entertaining in parts. Overall, the ‘aashqui’ flavour in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ dominates, and the message takes a backseat, almost getting lost ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 5.5/10
Resolves Its Problems A Bit Too Easily. Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is both – a necessary and laudable conversation starter but also an airbrushed and simplistic view of the struggle of a transwoman to find love and acceptance ... Full Review

Prathyush Parasuraman | Film Companion: - | 5/10
An Empty, Sincere Gesture Of Commercial Queer Storytelling ... Full Review

Komal Nahta | Film Information: - | 3/10
Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is a film with very limited class appeal. Other than that, it will face rejection among the masses and family audiences. Abhishek Kapoor’s direction is quite good. But, of course, the defects in the screenplay are so glaring that part of the blame would have to be shouldered by him too ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Movie comes off as oddly generic. Ayushmann Khurrana, Chandigarh boy for real, is right at home in his bristly-brawny-softie Manu. Vaani Kapoor’s svelte certified physical trainer with a troubled past takes you back to the flash of promise she had shown in ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Ayushmann Khurrana Has A Great Time, Vaani Kapoor Is A Revelation. Despite all the woke noises that it seeks to make, it eventually does not budge an inch from its received wisdom about what constitutes masculinity ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 4.5/5 | 9/10
Tackles a bold and taboo subject sensitively and is high on emotions. Recommended. The superlative performances of Ayushmann and Vaani are like the icing on the cake ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 4/5 | 8/10
REFRESHING. Bold. Refreshingly different. Progressive cinema… #CKA enlightens and entertains… Pushes the envelope, defies the stereotype and drives home a pertinent message… WATCH IT! ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10
It entertains you at the same time addressing a sensitive subject beautifully painting the message of 'love is love' ... Full Review

Pradeep Menon | FirstPost: 3/5 | 6/10
A breezy ‘social message’ rom-com that punches well above its weight. Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is meant to be a light-hearted depiction of a serious subject; and the film approaches its characters and plot exactly that way ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3/5 | 6/10
Where Ayushmann Khurrana gets the tone and texture of his hypermasculine chump in skinny gym shorts down pat, Vaani Kapoor is a picture of backbone and restraint in a role that could not have been easy ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3.5/5 | 7/10
'Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui' is worth watching, as it highlights a burning topic in an informative and entertaining manner ... Full Review

Deccan Herald: 2/5 | 4/10
Fails to live up to expectations. The film has a bold plot but falls flats due to the mediocre execution ... Full Review

Cinestaan: 2/4 | 5/10
Tentative romance on gender and identity that could have been so much more ... Full Review

Pankaj Shukla | Amar Ujala: 4/5 | 8/10
पता नहीं कि ‘सूर्यवंशी’ जैसी औसत फिल्मों को थिएटर भर भरकर देखने वाले कितने दर्शक फिल्म ‘चंडीगढ़ करे आशिकी’ देखने जाएंगे लेकिन ये फिल्म साल 2021 की बेहतरीन हिंदी फिल्म है। इसमें ‘बॉब बिस्वास’ जैसी सहजता भले न हो लेकिन फुलटू पंजाबी फ्लेवर वाली ये फिल्म हिंदी पट्टी के दर्शकों को भी आसपास की ही लगेगी ... Full Review

Ravi Bule | ABP Live: 2.5/5 | 5/10
आयुष्मान और वाणी की एक्टिंग में है दम, लेकिन फिल्म एंटरटेनमेंट करने से ज्यादा सिखाती है सबक ... Full Review

TV9 Hindi: - | 6/10
अभिषेक ने फिल्म में गंभीर मुद्दे को परिपक्वता के साथ दिखाया है और इसके साथ हल्की- फुल्की कॉमेडी भी है. जो आपको बोर नहीं होने देगी. अगर आप कुछ नया देखना चाहते हैं तो इस फिल्म को जरूर देखना चाहिए. फिल्म में आयुष्मान और वाणी कपूर की एक्टिंग काफी अच्छी है. दोनों ने अपने किरदार को बखूबी से निभाया है ... Full Review

The Wire: - | 4/10
'Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui' Is Cliché Central. Even an Interesting Plot Twist Can't Save it. If you’ve seen enough bad Hindi films, you’ll be able to predict every plot turn ... Full Review

Shomini Sen | WIONews: - | 7/10
Film is brave, entertaining and refreshing. Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor's new film talks of an important issue in society but cleverly blankets with the theme of a romantic comedy ... Full Review

Bollywood Bubble: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Watch the film for its refreshing take, bold screenplay, and captivating performances! ... Full Review

Bollywood Life: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Barring a gimmicky climax and a conveniently rushed conclusion, Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, is like a breath of fresh air, easily Bollywood's most progressive, evolved, and informative mainstream movie on the LGBTQ+ community sans any preachiness whatsoever, with a vastly improved Vaani Kapoor, and reliable as ever Ayushmann Khurrana heading the show ... Full Review

PinkVilla: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A package of drama, emotion, romance, laughter and social message ... Full Review

Spotboye: 4/5 | 8/10
Unconventional Aashiqui Breaks New Barriers With A Package Of Entertainment And Nuanced Plot. Turns out to be a promising take on a sensitive topic with a hint of comic elements ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 2/5 | 4/10
Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui's noble intentions become almost redundant considering Abhishek Kapoor and his co-writers treat the trans identity of its heroine as a condition ... Full Review

Mashable: 2/5 | 4/10
Whether or not this film is worth watching comes down to the right questions. Is it fun as an entertainer? Not entirely. Is its social message impactful? Only in parts. Does it have its heart in the right place in spite of its flaws? I want to believe it does ... Full Review

OTT Play: 3/5 | 6/10
Abhishek Kapoor takes a huge responsibility for making a fun film about an important subject and passes with flying colours ... Full Review

Subhash K Jha | IWM Buzz: 4.5/5 | 9/10
I have always believed that a film with a strong social message can only work when the tools of storytelling are well oiled and fully alert and alive to the job on hand.Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui seldom falters in telling it like it is ... Full Review
