Usually at such points, you wish to know what the filmmakers were thinking. For sociological purposes, we’re better off figuring: who are these people?

Live it up, Akshay, but you really need to change your schtick. You might be the fresh prince, one who's brought Sikh regality front and centre with a bass thump, but unless you start showing some smarts, you ain't legend.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
Akshay plays a playboy-stuntman, who has a knack of impressing women very easily. Even Hollywood actress Denise Richards pecks his lip for a nano-second in the movie and mentions to tabloids that he's a great kisser.

It's rare when a modern day Anu Malik album grabs your attention and gives you a bunch of memorable tunes.

Bizarre has a new meaning and it's called Kambakkht Ishq.
Taran Adarsh, SIFY
Hollywood stuntman Akshay Kumar tries to tame arrogant supermodel cum surgeon Kareena Kapoor in Los Angeles. The battle between the sexes gets hotter when the surgeon leaves her watch in the stuntman's stomach during an operation.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
The more the level of gimmickry in a film, fewer are the chances of it being watchable.

Let's face it. We like mindless comedies, innuendos, and slapstick humour. Proof: No Entry, Welcome, Singh is Kinng.
Chandrima Pal, Rediff 
As a whole, the movie suffers from the lack of a worthwhile screenplay and an apt direction

With 'Hum Kisise Kum Nahin', producer Afzal Khan would seem to have a winner on his hands

Yet, Kambakkht Ishq is different because it depicts the battle of the sexes, a theme that''s rarely depicted on the Hindi screen. The lingo is poles apart, so is the attitude. In fact, this is a modern take on relationships, with the two hours divided bet

Viraj Shergill (Akshay Kumar) is a stuntman who succeeds in Hollywood. Bowing down to touch the feet of his guru - Sylvester Stallone, he accepts a stuntman of the year trophy at a gala function attended by the Hollywood now set. This moment is strategica
Lidia Ostepeev, Planet Bollywood
Kambakkht Ishq is one film that might rake in the moolah at the box-office but is a film that shouldn't have been made. How I wish all the money wasted on this trash was actually spent on hiring some good writers.
Ashok Nayak, Now Running
But don’t lose heart just yet. Kirron Kher is pretty darn funny in this one. Her portrayal of the wannabe young and looking-to-marry aunt was not only humorous but cute even. Javed Jaffrey, who plays a Sindhi from Ulhasnagar looking for ways to file law s

Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
The boy v/s girl battle of wits has been portrayed often on screen. Trust producer Sajid Nadiadwala to make it larger-than-life and add opulence to it in his new film Kambakkht Ishq directed by first-timer Sabbir Khan.
Sarita A Tanwar, Mid-Day
Well, nothing has changed. Kambakht Ishq directed by Sabbir Khan is the same old, typical Akshay Kumar comedy flick. Expensive sets, 4 odd songs filled with babes from the west, a couple of great action sequences performed by the star himself, a super sex
f opposites, the story is about Viraj Shergill (Akshay) who happens to be working as a stuntman in Hollywood and like a typical person, he believes that women are good only for two things. On the other hand, there is Simrita Rai (Kareena) who is attitude
