Review By Sonal From Mid day
The best thing about the film is its novel idea. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been executed well. Haasan, as a feisty Punjabi girl, is a misfit. You can see her effort, but she appears stymied on most of scenes. ‘Behen Hogi Teri’ has some funny moments and attempts to upgrade the rom-com genre in Bollywood, but it doesn’t offer anything new. Take a chance with this one only if you enjoy the genre.
Review By Udita From Firstpost
What the writers (dialogue by Sanchit Gupta) and the director do get right is the idea of how ‘rakhi’ and the concept of sisterhood is a terrible manipulation for young people unrelated to one another. They also capture many subtleties of non-metro India and the preoccupations of local communities. Other pluses are a clever title, good production design and costumes, some finely edited scenes and yet another earnest performance by Rajkummar Rao. But the introduction of subplots (such as the daily ‘jagran’ where Gattu dresses as Shiv, or Gattu’s father’s obsession with becoming president of the neighbourhood and the vengeance seeking father and uncle) are diversions that make you restless.
Review By Nihit From Times of India
The movie takes place in a world where grown men still operate by the rules of teenaged boys: they play gully cricket, hide from girls on Raksha Bandhan, put silly curses on each other and ask their parents for money. The plot is juvenile to say the least. It is a little disheartening to see a movie that incorporates casual sexism and regressive norms without any plan to combat them. But the only reason to smile at the movie is Rajkummar Rao. The movie is packed with performers of various calibers, but Rao – the only reason to even attempt this – is better than everyone and their brother.
Review By Kunal From Mumbai Mirror
It’s easy to forsake this film as regressive and the society portrayed here as dated and disconnected from reality. But then, when have screwball comedies in Hindi cinema subscribed to being politically accurate or sensitive? If they were, No Entry would be shunned for objectifying women and Thank You would be banned for making light of domestic abuse. So, leave your brains and other organs at home and take your SO for this date film before you’re pronounced man and behen.
Review By Nandini From Scroll
But the filmmakers are having too much fun to notice that the running time (128 minutes) is far too long, the climax isn’t strong enough to support the preceding events, and Binny is regressing. The woman at the centre of the swirl isn’t developed enough to ever come into her own. Gattu is more of an anti-hero than a traditional leading man with all the answers, which must count as progress. But Binny resolutely remains the Hindi film heroine usually found in such films – the trigger for all the events, and the cause of all the sorrows.
