Here’s a pleasant surprise then— a film that’s fun without being flighty; and intelligent without weighing down the viewer.

Manu Gupta (Vinay Pathak) and Mihika Mukherjee (Lara Dutta) are the most mismatched traveling partners who are forced to journey together from Mumbai to Delhi when fate (or is it the maddening Mumbai traffic) pits them together.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Cast:Vinay Pathak, Lara DuttaDirector:Shashant ShahShe’s an uppity investment banker who doesn’t suffer fools. He’s a boorish but well-meaning klutz who has a problem shutting up. Missed flights and car breakdowns leave Lara Dutta and Vinay Pathak’s chara
Rajeev Masand, IBN 
It’s painfully predictable and not particularly amusing. At one point, Mihika is even given a lecture on the importance of having children. But by then, I was too bored to be offended. There isn’t much that actors can do with such paper-thin characters.

K N Gupta, Smash Hits
Lara Dutta and Vinay Pathak definitely make an odd pairing almost like Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell in Elf.
Tushar Joshi, Mid-Day
Chalo Dilli doesn't quite reach its destiny. The films works only in parts.
S. Rohatgi, Now Running
Chalo Dilli is a road movie, which shows the journey of two persons Manu Gupta (Vinay Pathak) and Mihika Mukherjee (Lara Dutta). The journey originates in the dream city Mumbai, travels through the pink city Jaipur and concludes in the capital city Delhi.
Or else give it a miss.

Imagine what would be the journey if one highly aristocrat lady travels with an uneducated, loud and gutta chewing guy, obviously the journey would be bizarreShahsant Shah of ‘Dasvidaniya’ fame comes up with an interesting flick, ‘’ which is full of humor

Behenji (Lara Dutta) meets Bhaisahab (Vinay Pathak) and they take us for a ride from Mumbai to Dilli (not Delhi) via Rajasthan via Ajmer and many more places. But there is hitch and the hitch is... There have been Road movies and there have been ROAD movi
Sujeet Mahto, Movie Zadda
'Kaunsi Badi Baat Ho Gayi' This is what one ends up saying once the curtains come down for 'Chalo Dilli'. Now that's nothing less than ironical since this is the oft repeated dialogue by Vinay Pathak right through the course of the film. While he seems to be undeterred by the mishaps around him and believes that there are bigger things to worry about in life than petty issues related to materialistic matters, the same can't be said about the audience for whom 'Chalo Dilli' comes across as a half baked attempt.
