Raabta Movie Review
Directed by Dinesh Vijan, Starring – Sushant Singh Rajput, Kriti Sanon, Jim Sarbh, Varun Sharma and Rajkummar Rao an old seer, wasted in this tiny role (who, over layers of his make-up and makeover and half bent for his 100 plus years, wears a funny looking fur coat).
Summary: When a human being dies, they lose 21 grams from the body. This, they say, is the weight of the soul. The journey of a soul transcends over space and time… beyond the realms of this earth. This film tells the story of two seemingly ordinary individuals, going about their lives until their paths cross and they realize that they belong with one another. Unaware of a connection that was forged several hundred years ago, Shiv and Saira are inexplicably drawn to each other, and it takes them on a hysterical roller-coaster of love, intrigue, entertainment and life (twice over!). When two souls unite, they become one.

Review By Manju From Masala
To be fair, most of us, who have marvelled at the likes of reincarnation films such as Karz, Om Shanti Om, Madhumati, Mahal, Neel Kamal, Kudrat and Karan-Arjun, have laughed off Mirziya and Love Story 2050. Raabta comes somewhere in the middle. It tries to toe the line by not shrugging off reincarnation totally. Raabta has all the right ingredients of a ‘much seen’ Bollywood film – the abs, the legs, the looks, the songs, the locations, a solo dance number ( I refuse to call it an ‘item number’) with Deepika Padukone and the reincarnation story. It is a Sushant Singh film all the way and all those who like him will find it endearing and fun. For the rest, it is a chance you might want to take.
Review By Manjusha From GulfNews
The second half is dominated by a fierce, brutish warrior who falls in love with a brave princess. The medieval arc sticks out like a sore thumb. It’s almost like seeing Game Of Thrones being inserted into the iconic, tender romance Before Sunrise.It’s the contemporary parts of the film that are relatively enjoyable. Watch this if you are in the mood for a cute romance that is at fantasy flight risk.
Review By Nihit From Times Of India
There are too many obvious influences: the saccharine first half is full of walk-and-talks in a beautifully shot European city (Before Sunset); the tribal past is right out of Game Of Thrones — Dothrakis are replaced by Murakis and astronomy is given similar importance; a scene towards the end is a forced throwback to Titanic.If sparks flew more organically, it would have been easier to make a connection with this epic tale of love.
