Quick take: Great cast let down by dodgy storytelling
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Rajkummar Rao is reduced to wear a weird wig and scream and shout. It’s a pity how his talent is wasted. If not for anything, go in for the laughs.

Hamari Adhuri Kahani review: Not only is the Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan film half done, it’s also not well begun
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
Hamari Adhuri Kahani is a film where three fine actors all play idiots
Raja Sen, REDIFF
With a protagonist so out of sync with the time and age she lives in, dialogues (Shagufta Rafiq), which seemed to belong to some other bygone era and somehow strayed into 2015, forced intensity and a story defying logic, this film is a disappointment
A melodramatic throwback that just doesn’t work
Baradwaj Rangan, BaradwajRangan
In short, a big disappointment for all who love good dramatic love stories and were expecting a good emotional drama from the Bhatt camp.

Hamari Senti Kahani is the perfect movie for creepy stalkers and lover-boys.

What seemed as a premise for a terrific extra-marital love affair drama in the promo, waters down to become a jugalbandi between who will ham the most
Tushar Joshi, DNA India
Watch this one if you are moved by sad love stories. The good performances are an added bonus.
Troy Ribeiro, NDTV
Hamari Adhuri Kahani is watchable, but it is not likely to ignite a passionate fire in your heart.
Rohit Vats, Hindustan Times
Hamari Adhuri Kahani is a cheesefest. Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi love story regresses into far too many Bollywood cliches.
David Tusing, Gulf News
Hamari Adhuri Kahani is un-settlingly boring and far from anything that can be termed as timeless romance.

Humari Adhuri Kahani stands true to the filmmaker's attempt at this film. It's nothing but a half baked, empty film with gigantic proportions of cheesiness!
Mansha Rastogi, Nowrunning
On the whole, HAMARI ADHURI KAHANI is definitely very 'adhuri' on entertainment value and can be skipped.
Bollywood Hungama
On the other side, Emraan’s role is limited and has nothing to do with the film. Raj Kumar Rao is the only hope to lift up the film, as his character is perfectly portrayed. Rest other characters are found satisfactory.

'' Clearly, this is a bad choice of selection yet again by Vidya. After KAHAANI, why an Aadhuri Kahaani?
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
Hamari Adhuri Kahani could have been a much better film. There was so much potential in the story line as the concept of abusive marriage is a huge problem in India

Hamari Adhuri Kahani is the kind of film where the hero, when smitten by a beautiful woman, writes her name on a piece of paper four times
Vishal Menon, The Hindu
All in all, this film fails to match the expectations it created after the release of the trailer and it should be watched by those who like cheesy dialogues and a lot of shedding of tears

Stale as stone age aloo puri.. The much dependable Mohit Suri (Ek Villain, Aashiqui 2, Murder 2) makes us worry. Mohit’s ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’ a borrowed line from the song ‘Bheegi Bheegi’ from Emraan Hashmi starrer ‘Gangster’ (2006) is a banally cooked love curry that reduces the exceptional talents of Vidya Balan, Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao to a vada pav.. how how..

बीते एक जून से सर्विस टैक्स भी बढ़ चुका है. लिहाजा टिकट के दाम आसमान छू रहे हैं. ऐसे में अगर आपको 'पैसा वसूल' फिल्म की तलाश है तो बेहतर है वीकएंड का कोई और प्लान बनाइए.

The film fails to impress audiences
Snehal Rajani, India.com
On a whole, Hamari Adhuri Kahani is an absolute waste of some good actors. While the story promises to make you weep in every scene, I am sure you will come out laughing on the stupidity the proceedings showcase

Watch 'Arth' again
There is a lot of pain in the movie. So much pain that I felt it. In my head. The kind of pain that the entire strip of Panadol won’t be able to fix. My temples are still pounding.

Suri tries to restore the gravitas, the pathos that we associate with romance and takes on the deep-seated patriarchy along the way
Anuj Kumar, The Hindu
Oddly, ‘Hamari Adhuri Kahani’, which was touted as a touching love tale, has turned out to be a good comedy movie to watch this weekend
The ‘timeless’ love story may not pine and involve the audience, but those who have loved and lost may connect with the movie at some level.
Director Mohit Suri tries to deliver a mature love story on the lines of 'Silsila', 'Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna' but faisl big time. Lack of chartbuster songs and jaded casting hurt him badly. Without hit songs even he is not the same director.
