It definitely isn’t the film of the year. But if you like your entertainment to be served up with glitzy but pulpy garnishing, pirouette your way to the nearest screen by all means. If you don’t, go for it only if your life depends on it.
In 'SOTY', Karan incorporates all his KJoisms but manages to make this one an effortless watch. The film is sure to be a big hit among the young cinegoers.

This is Karan Johar's world - that impossibly glossy planet with branded clothes, romances, convertibles and sweet heartbreaks.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Critically, the leading men, Varun and Sidharth, work. They don't instantly set the screen on fire like Hrithik Roshan or Ranbir Kapoor did in their first films. But they grow on you. Karan puts a heavy burden on them. They are the backbone of this film,

Komals Reviews
Student Of The Year is all fluff sans much stuff. Watch it if you are a big fan of frothy glossy romance. For the ones looking for realistic meaningful cinema this isn't the film for you.

Karan Johar is one of the most loved and respected directors in the industry and Student Of The Year – his first film without Shahrukh Khan – is probably his biggest test. With 3 newcomers, Karan returns to what he does best, a candy floss romcom starring

The movie is basically filmed in Dehradun, with a rich screenplay that adds to the quality of the movie. The rich kid, Rohan Nanda (Varun Dhawan) is handsome and has a spoilt girlfriend, Shanaya Singhania (Alia Bhatt) who tries to grab the attention of Rohan but in vain. Rohan is interested in Sana Sayeed. Enter Abhimanyu Sigh, the poor guy who loves Shanaya but sacrifices his love for his new made friend Rohan

Janhavi Samant, Mid-Day
With a fun outing like 'Student of the Year', Karan Johar has proved once again that he can fluctuate between making a relatively serious film like 'My Name Is Khan' and come back to candy floss youth entertainer in the mode of 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai'. Okay, so the high drama of many a Shahrukh KhanKajol films is indeed missing here as the film never gets into an overtly serious 'a family that weeps together stays together' zone.

Student Of The Year is a supremely entertaining and enjoyable fare which will do hit business all over. Not just in the multiplex­es but also in the single-screen cinemas, it will strike a chord in the audience's hearts. It will be adored by the youth (w
