Aditya Chopra may have made one of Hindi cinema’s most enduring love stories, but this is a soufflé that sinks like a stone

Befikre is a colossally stupid film

Bollywood doesn'€™t do romantic comedies very well.
Rajeev Masand, BookMyShow
No matter how casually his characters treat sex or bare every inch of their extraordinarily fit bodies, Aditya Chopra is too much of a romantic to pull off flippancy as the face of love

Befikre is much too long, though. There is also a noticeable dip in the second half, and the farcical ending isn’t entirely satisfying. But there’s enough magic here to leave you with a smile.
Anupama Chopra, Hindustan Times
Exotic but clichéd
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Leaving the cinema at the end of Befikre, having spent two hours and ten minutes in the company of its shallow protagonists, I felt exhausted

Stand up comic Dharm lands in Paris and meets the Paris tour guide Shyra and there's instant attraction. Since neither believes in the usual kind of love, they live together and their relationship is based on dares and lust. When a lad begins to woo Shyra the old fashioned way, will Dharm realise that Shyra and he are not just buddies, but in love with each other?

Chopra, the maker of one of Bollywood’s most enduring love stories, wanted to move with the times, but he didn’t quite get a hold of the Dharam-Shyra generation as he did the Raj-Simran generation. His leap of faith falls short, and in J K Rowling’s words, he ends up getting “splinched”

Befikre can be summed up in three Fs – fun, frothy and frivolous at the same time. Could become a preferred choice for collegians. A 2.5/5 for this Parisian romance.

The lead pair’s decision to hook up, make up, then hook up again is as old as the green hills in France — where the film was shot — and the twists are painfully predictable
Aditya Chopra, tried his best to deliver a modern day romance, which had an interesting first half but gets quite weak in the second.

The film works at some levels but leaves you disappointed at others. ‘Befikre’ is a breezy watch but it’s not a story sincere enough to tug at the heartstrings.

Befikre' Is An Epic Misfire
Aniruddha Guha, Mens XP
Overall, Befikre isn’t a completely novel film. The plot seems to follow the ‘been there, done that’ trend. But Aditya Chopra’s concept of falling in love whilst being carefree is quite refreshing. As such, Ranveer-Vaani’s hot chemistry, the chartbuster album and Paris should be sufficient to entertain you for the next 130 minutes!
