Inconsistent but likeable romance
Rachit Gupta, Filmfare
Katti Batti is an imbecilic, cliche-ridden embarrassment that made me want to punch it in the mouth
Raja Sen, REDIFF
Katti Batti review: Kangana Ranaut, Imran Khan’s movie wastes our time most comprehensively and completely
Shubhra Gupta, Indian Express
The troubled world of this modern-day Devdas and his Paro could have made for an interesting watch, but what we get is a crackerjack story that’s fleshed out rather haphazardly
Sonia Chopra, Sify
It doesn’t say much about a romantic comedy if the smartest joke they could come up with is the name of a pet turtle

Katti Batti is infuriatingly indecisive
Sukanya Verma, REDIFF
Let’s just say, we are katti with ‘Katti Batti’ for not living up to the build-up.

There is nothing neither fresh nor new in this Ghisi Piti (stale) love story making it yet another edition of the flop movies in director Nikhil Advani's cap.

KATTI BATTI Never Rises Above Average
Box Office Capsule
Overall, Katti Batti is one of the most boring films on romance and relationships in recent times – advisable to avoid this one this weekend
On the whole, due to its weak script and non-engaging narrative, KATTI BATTI will face...
Bollywood Hungama News Network, Bollywood Hungama
The fresh pairing of Kangana and Imran and their on-screen chemistry works out very well and is the best part of the film.
पुरानी स्टोरी करेगी निराश
Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut’s adorable performances are let down by and uneven and cliched storytelling!
Sreeju Sudhakaran, Bollywood Life
Advani yet again dishes out a soulless and hollow yarn in which the protagonists’ pet turtle probably moves quicker than the pace of the film
Jay Mamtora, Bolly Brit
With stylishly shot and eminently hummable songs, and its fair share of funny moments, this film is a welcome break from the action thrillers that have released recently. It aims to entertain throughout and never gets too serious or too intense. Go watch Imran and Kangana’s chemistry and grab a few laughs, this weekend.
If media reports are to be believed then the makers of Katti Batti wanted to go with the title of ‘Saali Kutiya’ initially, and now I wonder why, because the film fails to instigate any emotion, leave aside loathing for its female protagonist.
Overall, the tragedy of Katti Batti" lies in the fault of its director."
Great Andhra
Wait till Monday to find out if Ranaut's charm and popularity can achieve the impossible and make up for Advani's disappointing filmmaking and unremarkable hero.
Deepanjana Pal, First Post
What to do:  Katti Batti has a promising start, but a weak script and some run of the mill moments kills the chances of it turning into something worth your time and money.
Tushar Joshi, DNA India
But don’t say you weren’t warned.
Deccan Chronicle
On the whole, Katti Batti lacks the depth of an intense love story and also lacks entertaining moments.
Komal Nahta, KomalsReviews
If at all Nikhil wanted the script to tug at one's heart, he should have seen ANKHIYON KE JHAROKHON SE 10 times and then redone the movie. Indeed, this is FOSLA KA GHOSLA!
Martin D'Souza, Glam Sham
Nikhil Advani sticks to a tried and exhausted route, yet getting it completely wrong.

Overall, the tragedy of Katti Batti lies in the fault of its director.
Troy Ribeiro, NDTV
The film is promoted with an interesting, twisted end. Err NOT! There is nothing new about the ending of the film. The only good thing about the ending was…that it ended.
Lokesh Dharmani, Masala
Katti Batti is a well crafted film that misses the rightful rendering. A meandering screenplay turns it bland and messy. Though this is not a bad film but it is also not as good as it was projected.
Bolly Arena
Katti Batti is a stale, boring and insensible film that seems like a mockery at love and relationships, thanks to its crassness
Surabhi Redkar, Koi Moi
Imran Khan is sincere. Kangana has by now proved that she’s a brilliant actress, but here she seems to be faltering a bit as if she is desperately looking for a firm footing in terms of a convincing character
Coming to the music, except Sarfira song, rest others sound so routine or to say noisy. Editing is fine, as the length is monitored well. Cinematography is top notch, the production values are rich. Almost the complete technical department has no great flaws, except the director.

Better still, giftwrap it and send it to Bollywood filmmakers who believe romance and young love is all about feeding a turtle.

In fact, the last ten odd minutes of the film keeps you hooked to the screen. But obviously that is not enough at all.
On the whole, Katti Batti is tedious and a bore fest which goes now where. We would recommend you to give this film a shot only if you want to see Imran and Kangana’s rocking chemistry.
