VIA DARJEELING is more of an experiment. At the box-office it's a dud!
Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
Sonali does a smart tightrope between the sometime-steady-sometime-two timing wife. Sadly the film barely captures any scenic beauty of the place.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
My point, simply, is this: if a man kills his wife (or vice versa), but the audience doesn't care about either character, can we still call the movie a mystery?
Raja Sen, Rediff 
A much-in-love honeymooning twosome, Ankur and Rimli (Kay Kay Menon, Sonali Kulkarni), is staying at a resort in Kalimpong, near Darjeeling.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Rarely have such good performers seemed so lost and staccato in a film before. The pace of the movie is what in Bombay streets they call thakela. You could say that about this movie as well.
Mayank Shekhar, NDTV 
On the more upbeat side, Kay Kay Menon, Sonali Kulkarni and Prashant Narayan, as a New York-returned boozard filmmaker, summon up competent performances. And the effort does try to step off the beaten track. Most importantly, it’s different enough not to

This is only for the experimental audience, nothing much for the general viewers.

Via Darjeeling has its moments but not enough to deserve your hard earned money.

This is conspicuous by its complete absence in this movie
Smash Hits
The National Film Development Corporation of India coproduces 'Via Darjeeling' and since it's an overload of talented actors and a cinema valuing body such as the above, one would expect some quality cinema. So what if there haven't been any promotions for such a film. Is it necessary for the so called cinema of the intellectuals?
