Rating Score -> 4/5
In a post Covid era, where we are grappling with what’s the new normal every day of our lives, it’s time we dig deep and question what is ‘normal’ really. Have we self-created norms and normalcy, to feed the needs of few in the world who are trapped in this false sense of what is normal? Isn’t it time to shake things up a bit, move out of the comfort zone and break the shackles of stereotypes? Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui does that, while still leaving you comfortably entertained.

3. Hindustan Times -

Rating Score -> n/a
For its almost two-hour runtime, the story is fast paced and doesn't go off track. Right from the build-up to twists to climax, it sticks to its crux without bringing needless subplots. However, Abhishek could have done a lot with the story at hand in terms by showing a bit more of what actually happens in real life when people go through such biases in the society based on their gender identity. Even the climax doesn't evoke any strong emotion or make you stand up and applaud the message the film had set out to deliver.

4. Indian Express -

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Ayushmann Khurrana starrer comes off as oddly generic. Chandigarh boy for real, is right at home in his bristly-brawny-softie Manu. Vaani Kapoor’s svelte certified physical trainer with a troubled past takes you back to the flash of promise she had shown in ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Where Khurrana gets the tone and texture of his hypermasculine chump in skinny gym shorts down pat, Vaani Kapoor is a picture of backbone and restraint in a role that could not have been easy even though Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui steers clear of her metamorphosis and portrays Maanvi's alienation in a glamorous and privileged light. Kapoor's sass and spine shows in the way she handles the hostilities. The girl can take it on the chin.

Rating Score -> 3.5/5
Bollywood has seen the scathing representation of the LGBTQ community in comedy films. We have flicks that have demeaned the community, served with cliche gay jokes, layered with irritating background scores, and over-the-top acting by artists. Thankfully, 'Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui' is far away from all these precedents and it strikes a balance between entertainment and enlightenment.

7. Anupama Chopra -

Rating Score -> n/a
In Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, director Abhishek Kapoor attempts a perilous tightrope act. He takes a complex subject that many viewers would either be ignorant of or uncomfortable with and then attempts to parcel it as a broad-based mainstream Hindi movie with stars, songs, glamour, comedy, dysfunctional families and emotional drama. The result is a film that is successful in some ways and faltering in others. Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui is both – a necessary and laudable conversation starter but also an airbrushed and simplistic view of the struggle of a transwoman to find love and acceptance.

Rating Score -> 2.5/5
Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui might serve the purpose of starting a conversation because it uses mainstream Mumbai movie methods to present the unconventional love story with all the seriousness that it merits. But make no mistake, the film will also raise questions about the wisdom of using the safe device of a comic love story to turn the spotlight on a reality that does not get enough attention from Bollywood scriptwriters.

Rating Score -> 2/5
If you were given a choice between being punched by a pro boxer and watching this week's new release Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, then think twice before choosing the latter.  Nothing, just nothing, can be as exasperating as the experience of sitting through this mass of mediocrity that masquerades as an example of content-driven cinema.

Rating Score -> n/a
Ayushmann Khurrana does well but his lack of conviction in the poor script becomes evident in his performance at several places. It is for this reason that a wonderful actor like him is not able to deliver his best. He has worked extremely hard on his physique, and it shows. Vaani Kapoor is very good in a meaty role. She performs well in an author-backed role. She also looks glamorous.

Rating Score -> 3/5
Let me think of similar tent-pole Hindi movie attempts in the recent past. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga (2019) — such a stretch. Khurrana’s own Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan (2020) — so unnecessarily over-the-top. This one, way better, for sure.
