Bollywood Hungama - By Taran Adarsh
HASEE TOH PHASEE dares to be distinctive. This one's *not* merely about opposites falling in love. This one's a quirky love tale involving two individuals, shades different from the mundane stuff on matters of heart. On the whole, HASEE TOH PHASEE is a bright-and-breezy, charming and refreshing rom-com that makes you smile, laugh and gets you moist-eyed at regular intervals. A qualitative film that warms the cockles of your heart. Go for it! Rating 3.5/5
 Times Of India - By Meena Iyer
Hasee Toh Phasee is for the romantics who like their martinis stirred not shaken.  This romantic comedy mirrors the quirks in human nature subtly and provides humour in everyday situations; in the family and amongst friends..If you're looking to rediscover the magic of goofy love around Valentines, give HTP a shot.Note: You may not like this film if you are a die-hard romantic who only subscribes to Bollywood formula. Rating 4/5

Hasee Toh Phasee is a refreshing rom-com with fabulous performances. In fact, the film has it all – emotion, comedy and romance. But if we had to pick just one reason why Hasee Toh Phasee is an absolute must-watch, then it has to be Parineeti Chopra, who is quickly emerging as one of the best and most natural actresses in the industry. In the league of Kajol, Madhuri Dixit and Rani Mukherji! Hasee Toh Phasee is also a clean film that can be watched and enjoyed with the entire family. Go for it, you won’t be disappointing! Rating 4/5
 Rediff - By Sukanya Verma
Hasee Toh Phasee is that rare film that allows you to know the two people you’re investing in. And the closer you get, the more they win you over.Parineeti sinks her teeth into this misunderstood kook without a trace of self-consciousness or exaggeration. If that’s not magical enough, what Hasee Toh Phasee celebrates certainly is. That the only high you need is life, love and smiles. Rating 3.5/5
 NDTV - By Saibal Chaterjee
It is an unpretentious little odd-couple romantic comedy. But the plot of Hasee Toh Phasee is a conundrum that takes some doing to crack. Hasee Toh Phasee, notwithstanding its rather unimaginative title and its muddled core, is a mildly diverting, if somewhat woolly-headed, entertainer held together by its unapologetically absurdist spirit. If you do not let the occasional lapses in logic get in the way, you might actually find yourself enjoying the film. Do check it out. Hasee Toh Phasee is a watchable, if not scintillating, film. Rating 2.5/5
 Bollywood Life - By Prathamesh Jadhav
On the whole, Hasee Toh Phasee is not a perfect love story with a perfect lead pair. Vinil Mathew instead shows the quirks, flaws and goof-ups of an endearing couple in this beautifully mounted movie. Watch it if you like love stories with an awwwww inspiring climax. Rating 3/5
 Mumbai Mirror - By Rahul Desai
Hasee Toh Phasee' is a bedheady romantic comedy that is a bit long and has two climaxes- both of which could have overlapped, in my opinion. Nevertheless, Parineeti as Meeta is one for the ages; she is the powering force behind a well-mounted film which, for most of its 141 minutes, is a timely shot in the arm for a traditionally mishandled genre. Rating 3/5
 Indian Express - By Shubhra Gupta
Hasee Toh Phasee’ wanders about figuring out whether it wants to be a contemporary rom-com, or a Gujarati-flavoured soap, or a 60s melodrama, or all of the above. This confusion confounds the film, fronted by the most talented female lead working in Bollywood right now, and makes her much less fun than she can be. That holds true for the film, too. Rating 2/5
 Filmfare - By Raedita Tandan
Kudos to producers, Anurag Kashyap and Karan Johar for backing this film. HTP seems like the perfect amalgamation of their vastly diverse sensibilities (watch the film to know what we mean). The final verdict: HTP is one of the most refreshing boy-meets-girl films to have been made in recent times. So go watch this zany, new-age date movie. This is one date you won’t regret. Rating 4/5
 India Today - By Suhani Singh
Hasee Toh Phasee is a refreshing, much-needed entry in the contemporary romcom genre, which has lately seen a series of uninspiring films. It's largely to do with the presence of an unseen pairing with great chemistry - Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra - and Mathew and writer Harshvardhan Kulkarni's perky take on love. Rating 3/5
 DNA - By Tushar Joshi
The lead pair of Sidharth and Parineeti make Hasee Toh Phasee enjoyable and believeable. This odd pairing works only because these two actors take an effort to play their characters with utmost sincerity. Watch it if you want to see a different take on modern day romance. Hasee Toh Phasee is worth a watch for a solid act put together by its lead pair. Rating 3/5
 KoiMoi - By Mohar Basu
The film is both pleasantly surprising and utterly baffling in equal amounts. Though Vinil Mathew’s direction might not be perfect due to his lack of experience, Hasee Toh Phasee will definitely win your heart for the symbiotically arranged, pitch perfect chemistry of Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra. It was passionate and compelling, almost to make me wish that they were a real life couple and that alone becomes thew winning shot. Rating 3/5
 AVERAGE RATING: 3.2/5 - VERY GOOD!!
