Ram Gopal Varma's recent films include Rakht Charitra (he chose to torture his audience with two parts), Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, Rann, Agyaat and Phoonk.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
This is a film made in bad taste, and -- with apologies to Mr Capote -- in old blood.
Raja Sen, Rediff 
The lovers are anything but loveable characters.But it’s engaging and watchable – if for nothing else, for the flashes of the RGV of yore.

As end credits roll down for 'Not A Love Story', one remembers Ram Gopal Varma's oft repeated statement in his defence that all he was doing was telling a tale from an outsider's perspective who never had any clue around what really happened behind closed doors. Was the character of Mahie Gill being 'emotionally raped' by Ajay Gehi? Did she sleep with him at her own free will? Did Mahie actually make Deepak Dobriyal an X, a short form of a word which is unprintable here but is pretty much mouthed in the film? Ramu pretty much puts all the cards on the table and asks audience to pick and choose.

The film has finally been released with Mahie Gill playing the part of an ambitious struggling actress Maria Susairaj, Deepak Dobriyal as her mad passionate lover and Ajay Gehi as Neeraj Grover, the man who was killed by the lover in a fit of rage. I don’
Stutee Ghosh, Planet Bollywood
The Story of the film starts when a small town actress Anusha Chawla (Mahie Gill) faces an indecent proposal from a producer, who asks her to fulfill his wish in order to get a film offer. Anusha walks out of the cabin of the Producer, but, this attitude of her does not remain for a longer time and her decision to compromise, leads to the rest of the story. Later, we can see how Anusha gets along with Ajay Bhatnagar (Ajay Gehi), sleeps around with him, how their relationship develops, how Anusha’s fiancé Robin (Deepak Dobriyal) gets possessive about Anusha after getting to know her closeness with Ajay, and how this leads to Ajay’s murder by Robin. And post this, how Anusha helping Robin to wipe out all the evidence, yet how they both proved guilty under the Court of law. The story is entirely similar to that of the line taken from the Original story.

Not A Love Story gets mired by poor story-telling. Despite having a very gruesome and shocking subject the faulty narrative makes it lose its impact leading to boredom.

 For select audience only, somewhat disturbing..

Not A Love Story has limited appeal as it is more for the classes. It has curiosity value more than entertainment value. Its biggest plus point is its limited budget.
Remember the 2008 murder case (well known as Neeraj Grover murder case), wherein a man (Neeraj) was murdered and his body was chopped into pieces in suburban Mumbai. Not A Love Story is inspired by the murder case. The film narrates what could''ve provoke
He just suggests it

Real life to reel life say that to any Producer, and chances are that they might sell off their house to make a movie on it. Whether the movie works or not, they gain a prominence and fame in the film industry. Indian society and Bollywood on a whole

Choosing the Road which is least travelled and tried is the path for Ram Gopal Varma .    He is famous for the controversial element in his movies....
