Deepika Padukone and Siddhant Chaturvedi are unable to start a fire in this Shakun Batra film ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
If you want to look beyond the usual, Gehraiyaan definitely has depth that’s worthy of being explored ... Full Review

Anupama Chopra | Film Companion: - | 5.5/10
Intriguing But Doesn’t Reach The Poetic Heights It Aspires To. The film is an intriguing excursion into the unknowable depths that men and women contain ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: - | 7/10
A Bewitching Brew of Desire and Destiny. Like Shakun Batra’s first two films, Gehraiyaan is a study of reluctant familyhood ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5 | 4/10
The foursome of Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Dhairya Karwa should have been a throbbing hot mess, but the film doesn’t go deep enough ... Full Review

The New Indian Express: 3.5/5 | 7/10
As a narrative, Gehraiyaan goes commendably far for a mainstream Hindi film. But its words tend to trip up the ride ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2/5 | 4/10
The film is about youthful, adventurous love, but it is utterly devoid of humour and zing. When it tries to lighten up, it falls flat ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3/5 | 6/10
With an exciting climax and bravura performances GEHRAIYAAN makes for a decent watch ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 3.5/5 | 7/10
All said and done, I don’t remember when was the last time a film’s title did so much justice to its story. It just drowns you so deep to a point where you might feel shortness of breath, but it’s all worth it ... Full Review

Barbara Shulgasser | Common Sense Media: 2/5 | 4/10
Despite solid performances by the lead actors, we don't care much about the compromised characters and their self-created conflicts ... Full Review

Aparita Bhandari | Paste Magazine: - | 5/10
Let me get the cliché out of the way first: For a work titled Gehraiyaan (Depths), this much-anticipated film doesn’t delve much below the surface ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | National Herald India: - | 6/10
It’s a tingling triangle in which everyone is a casualty but not quite culpable and is made persuasive with the gravitas which a veteran like Naseeruddin Shah lends to the role ... Full Review

Rich Cline | Shadows on the Wall: 3/5 | 6/10
Performances are grounded and naturalistic, never playing up the emotions that run through their interaction ... Full Review

Radhika Menon | Decider: - | 5/10
For all that Gehraiyaan promises with its all-star cast and intricately weaved romantic plot, the film falls apart at the end without a clear vision for its conclusion ... Full Review

Akhil Arora | NDTV Gadgets360: - | 4/10
Its world is fractured, it's all out of control, and it goes overboard (in one instance, quite literally). Staying through Gehraiyaan's final half hour feels like a severe case of whiplash ... Full Review

Siddhant Adlakha | indieWire: B- | 6/10
Gehraiyaan seldom earns its melodramatic turns. However, the buildup to them proves to be dynamic enough, emotionally charged enough, and above all, honest enough... that the film remains worthwhile ... Full Review

David Tusing | The National (UAE): - | 7.5/10
A hugely satisfying emotional roller-coaster ride ... Full Review

Phuong Le | The Guardian: 3/5 | 6/10
While the lurid twists and turns are enjoyable in a 90s erotic thriller kind of way, the sudden shift towards suspense hampers Padukone’s performance. And what a performance it is! ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: 4/5 | 8/10
Gehraiyaan is not constructed like a conventional thriller, but the events in the storyline press forward with an urgency that makes it impossible to look away ... Full Review

The Hindu: - | 7.5/10
Needs to be relished for its deeper meanings and heartfelt performances. Shakun Batra’s relationship drama painstakingly dissects the lives of a set of upwardly mobile young people who love to surf in more ways than one ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A moody, muddled and intensely intimate exploration of adult urban relationships ... Full Review

DNAIndia: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Too complicated for the masses. Although the plot of the 'Gehraiyaan' isn't novel, the treatment of the subject leaves an impression ... Full Review

Uday Bhatia | Live Mint: - | 5/10
Gehraiyaan stays with manicured moodiness too long. There are moments that bruise, but Gehraiyaan can’t shake the impression of being Scenes From an Affair for the swish Instagram set ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | Scroll: - | 6/10
Chaturvedi brings a nice roguish edge to Zain, who doesn’t give much away, until he does ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 3.5/5 | 7/10
A technically sound film having some fine performances and carrying a hint of mystery as well -- doesn't that make for the perfect OTT entertainment ... Full Review

Filmi Beat: 3/5 | 6/10
Deepika Padukone Dives Deep And Emerges With A Poetic Performance ... Full Review

123 Telugu: 3.25/5 | 6.5/10
Gehraiyaan is a superb take on modern relationships. Engaging narration, spellbinding performances, and solid drama are major assets of this film ... Full Review

The Week: 1.5/5 | 3/10
A soulless affair. The four good looking leads is possibly the only reason to watch the movie ... Full Review

Stutee Ghosh | The Quint: 2.5/5 | 5/10
Deepika Padukone Shines in a Film With No Depth. And while a svelte Deepika breathes life into her role, overall Gehraiyaan is more style than substance ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | News9 Live: 2.5/5 | 5/10
The tonal shifts are carried out so self-consciously that they sit awkwardly somewhere between the sharp edges of a satire and the intensity of a thriller ... Full Review

Free Press Journal: - | 1/10
All noise, zero substance make this Deepika Padukone-starrer a horrifying bad film with flaws of great depths ... Full Review
